Charlie 191 Recruit Journal Week 05


Charlie 191 Recruit Journal

Formed: March 31, 2015

Graduates: May 22, 2015

Week 05 otherwise known as SAR (Search and Rescue) Week is for many reasons but mainly because the short amount of time we have to do so many things. But after being both well trained and disciplined we were able to make every single time objective. Throughout this week many great things as well as unfortunate events have occurred. We had company runs, radio procedures class, learned how to use personal flotation devices, gave blood, and received our orders. We had some unfortunate events that some saw coming, but never wanted them too. This week we lost of not just shipmates, but close friends. Even though they left Charlie-191, they still have a place in our memories. With the graduation of Alfa-191 Charlie has become the 2nd most senior company on the Regiment. This weekend we will move to Healy Hall where all the senior companies live. Although, a tough week is over we still have some hurdles to clear before Charlie-191 graduates on 22May.
