Week 02 is coming to an end for India-188. This week was just one more towards our 31 person company. There are still many things left to learn, but our feet are in the water and we are taking off. The biggest struggle that this company is being faced with is teamwork. Something that seems so simple to most, is extremely challenging for us. We are beginning to understand that every mission given to us requires teamwork. We were given our pieces early this week to learn as much as we could before tomorrow.  India-188 has been privileged to participate in the sunset parade alongside the entire regiment. Every single one of us is proud to be a part of something like this. It is definitely going to be a great experience. We are entering week 03 with a positive attitude and a clear mind. Only 05 more weeks. “The ends lead to the means”
