This week has been extremely intense for KILO-189. We have failed, failed, and failed again. Our Company Commanders are not happy about it to say the least. Two recruits quit, more on probation and more are probably going to be reverted. Time is a huge factor in the Coast Guard, Petty Officer Luedecke treats us fairly and we are all trying to achieve his expectations. We have spent a lot of time unlearning a lot of childish behavior thanks to our Company Commanders. We also spent two days in Seamanship class learning practical Coast Guard things such as rudder commands and knot tying. Week four we are coming for you; it will take blood, sweat and tears but we WILL do this.
