Historian Log Summary for Week 06.



Week 06 is in the bag. This means we are definitely going to be viewed as a senior company. There were countless mistakes made in the past week. Almost all of them simple, such as not sounding off every time we opened our mouths. Through these mistakes and effort of our Company Commanders, we continued to improve and learn throughout the week. The main classes were about firefighting. It’s safe to say nearly everyone enjoyed these classes. We also spent time learning about and contacting our new duty stations. Also, we were issued our military identification cards. This is definitely the week that is making us feel like we will be in the fleet. With this in mind, our company commanders are making their standards higher. No matter the standards, we must continue to meet and exceed them. We learned new movements in manual of arms. However, the highlight of the week came on the last day. We finally made it to On-Base Liberty. We made trips to the Exchange and then visited The Harbor View. Most of us spent our time using our phones to talk to family members and loved ones. Even though it was a break from all the action, we realize that we must stay locked on and not let the people we love down, but most importantly the person working hard to form us into members of the most bad ass fleet in the world, SK1 Russo.


Thank you for your time and effort with this company.
