Yankee 191 Recruit Journal Week 03


Yankee 191 Recruit Journal

Formed: September 15, 2015

Graduates: November 6, 2015

Well week 03 has come to a end and we have made it to week04. Now the pressure is on and it’s up to Yankee-191 to start down the path of greatness and come together as a company. Week 03 has had its ups and downs for the company we have had our first experience with the mustang suits, learned the history of the Coast Guard, tied our essential knots, we ground more required knowledge through our thick skulls. Every day is a new life experience for this company, every disciplinary drill has a valuable lesson that will help us in the fleet. Right now our Company Commanders are our worst enemies but as the weeks go by we will see that they will be our greatest influences in life but for now all we can live by is (chow, chow, chow, chewy bar).
