Week 04

02-08Jun14 Summary – V-189

This past week has been one giant rollercoaster for the company. Everyone passed the run for our physical fitness assessment and our company commanders awarded us with coffee! Everyone in the company has been drinking it like it’s going out of style. We also scored high as a company on our midterm which gave us more personal time the evening. But then we had a random squadbay inspection and found one giant mound of 55 pairs of shoes and racks in completely different squadbays. To say the least our company commanders had to have had a little fun doing it. Just when we think we have it all figured out, they shake us back to reality. And just how our company commanders have been teaching us, it doesn’t matter what you did yesterday it matters what you do today. We have a tough week ahead of us as we climb our way up to being a senior company. We also take on a lot more responsibilities with a lot more expectations. But with motivations like possibly getting our orders next week and just plain avoiding incentive training, hopefully Victor-189 can survive and thrive.
