Victor 189 Recruit Journal     Week 05

Formed: May 13, 2014

Graduates: July 03, 2014

Victory has never tasted so good. Today victor-189 got to feel like a senior company. We all had fun today, that’s right…fun. Basically for the first time in 5 weeks. We were partnered up to battle with pugil sticks. Winner takes all – coffee and dessert with every meal. Today was such an awesome day it really didn’t matter who won or loss, we are finally a team and treated each other as such. Although the week did not start off that way. The pressure has been on with moving into a new hall with the other senior company and “earning” our orders. Man did they make us work for those. Now that we all know where we are going you can see the motivation in us. The light at the end of the tunnel is finally visible, lets just hope we don’t get the crazies and lose focus.
