Oscar Company 189: Recruit Journal

International Maritime Signal Flag Oscar

Well where to begin? Today was incredible we started early in the morning with a march down to the beach. Our company commanders halted us facing the ocean. For a while the only sound was the waves crashing on the beach and then “push up position take” we replied as loud as humanly possible AYE AYE Petty Officer McCall. After a lengthy IT session we were called back to our feet, and our CC’s ordered us once again to remember why we are here. We were then given the command to about face and to our absolute surprise we saw our company colors posted in the distance.
