Sierra 188 Recruit Journal: Final Entry

Formed: Aug. 13, 2013
Graduated: Oct. 4, 2013

“This Sunday was our last Sunday at TRACEN Cape May. We have only a short time before graduation and the anticipation is almost unbearable, we are standing watch with the most junior company on the regiment and are training them on how to stand a proper watch. We have been preparing a lot for departing at the administration building and have been getting a lot of advice from our Company Commanders on how to be successful in the fleet. This has been a long journey and it has been an experience of a lifetime.” SIERRA-188.
