It’s hard to think that week six is over because it feels like we just began. We started out with some bumps but managed to pull through. We are now the senior company on the regiment. We had our firefighting practical which was fun, but sometimes we lose our military bearing after being away from our company commander’s.

I think this week we are grasping what are lead company commander has been trying to drill into us all this time; If you work hard, don’t slack off, stick to your core values, and have a sense of confidence people will respond better to you. All week we have been trying harder and harder to be better and I think the point is that we are almost into week seven.

Now is not the time to regress, it is the time to work harder than ever and we will. Next week we will have our manual of arms and close order drill tests. We are KILO-189, we are better than the rest!
