Week six is finally coming to the end and its ending on a high note with on-base liberty. The beginning of the week started out with fire fighting practical while we don hoods and “Darth Vader mask” you turn on the hose and jolt back and rely on your shipmates to keep you upright. Crawling thru the heavy smoke and the rushing of the water mixed with commands being shouted makes your task a bit more stressful. Although we are Uniform Company so we go this.

Uniform company is pulling together for right now, looking for ways to make our Lead Company Commander proud. Something we all are striving for right now.

I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again the weeks go by fast. We had a serious workout before on base liberty. We all made our way over to the exchange to load up on snacks then it was off to the harbor view club. We had talks of pool games, and air hockey competitions, but in reality, our phones were glued to our ears. 100 % battery life quickly reduced to 05% and we bee-lined it to the power outlet. We laughed and cried during skype calls with loved ones; however the night had to come to an end and we made sure we did everything properly. Phones off, club cleaned, and locked back on to march back to the regiment.
