Coast Guard Recruit Company November 192 Graduation Program

WEEK 07 Summary



November Company is coming to the end of Week 07, which means we are graduating in less than a week. I have to admit the company is going wee bit nuts, but we are all having fun, yes having fun at Boot Camp. With that being said we are still getting things done and doing things the right way. We have a busy week ahead of us. We still have classes and administration stuff and sponsor stuff, graduation stuff, Physical Fitness Challenge, the list goes on. We do have some fun stuff coming up; we have a pizza party, company roast, and a cat walk with our company colors Nova. Our art crew is doing a great job with the ditty bags that we get to hang up in the galley. I can’t wait to hear what the funny crew comes up with for the company roast. Petty Officer Burke did his debriefing today. We have been getting to know our company commanders on a whole different level and it’s been great. They are all amazing and funny people. On another exciting note, we are finished with watches after tonight. No more being woken up at the middle of the night and standing there for an hour wishing you were still sleeping. Tomorrow we are doing the Williams Flores Fitness Challenge. It’s a combination of as many push up as you can, as many sit ups, pull ups , swim, bike, and a two mile run. If we do well enough we get the fitness pennant. Come tomorrow night we are going to be exhausted and ready to sleep for 12 hours. Four days and a wake up.
