Yankee 191 Recruit Journal Week 02



Yankee 191 Recruit Journal

Formed: September 15, 2015

Graduates: November 6, 2015


Y-191 had a fun week let me tell you. We had a hundred things to learn and all we did was work on our chest muscles. Pushing the deck because we can’t follow simple task directions yet. We had to learn our Chain Of Command by yesterday and the whole book of required knowledge by tomorrow. WE got our first piece (demilitarized riffle) this week. So we have been learning our Manual of arms. How to move the piece and how to move in formation with the piece. It has all been new and exciting here at TRACEN Cape May. The military lifestyle has proven to be a lot to adjust to. We are not up to par yet. However our moral is high and we are ready to concur week 03. Wish us luck in taking on another challenging week.
