Week 07 has been a trying time for Y-191, the final for seamanship, final exam, manual of arms and close order drill test. The seamanship final wasn’t too intense with everything considered but we did not receive the pennant, however this did not discourage Y-191 in the slightest. The next and arguably greatest challenge faced by Y-191 during this week was the infamous close order drill and manual of arms test. I wish I could tell you how stressful the final exam was but for those who prepared, it was just like any other test and in the end every recruit in Y-191 passed.
