The boys are becoming men and the girls are becoming women, however were not quite there yet. We have faith in each other each and every day. Practice makes perfection! As Petty Officer Russell says, he will make us perfect. So, we’ll continue slashing our zeros, step off with our left foot, and recite “Honor, Respect and Devotion to Duty”, throw our ink sticks on the deck and pick them up till our heads spin, and participate in “Russell Specials”. Sure enough we will get our acts together, become a team, be one; November-190.

These past few days really hit us that we need to come together and always be mindful of integrity. Every day is a new day, we just can’t forget, our actions dictate what type of day or night we’ll have. Taps, it’s time to catch a cat nap, before FIRE, FIRE, FIRE!!!!!
