Recruit Journal Sierra 188: Week 06

Recruit Journal Sierra 188: Week 06
Formed: August 6, 2013
Graduate: September 27, 2013

Sundays are always a good day to reflect and recharge. We have our close order drill test coming up so we spent some time practicing the test. We also got into our service dress bravo’s and learned the specifics of how to properly wear them.

We are almost finished with our required knowledge and are just around the corner from graduation. We went on another off-base run, this time with Romeo company.

The more time we spend in Cape May the more we grow, although sometimes it feels as though we take a few steps back. We know we are miles ahead of where we started when we first stepped off that bus.

We are 12 days away from the best feeling anyone has when they come to Training Center Cape May.
