Romeo-192 Blog Week 04

Yes that’s right we are half way through this thing they call boot camp and are now looming on week 05. We have lost shipmates and it wasn’t just for medical reasons anymore. We simply go somewhere for one movement and when we return there is a cleared rack open and empty. Simply put they vanish like abra kadabrah and poof they are gone. It is getting really serious and isn’t going to let up anytime soon. We all went to the range this week. It was exciting to get to see the outside world for once. We crushed previous companies with the most qualified firearms record to date. 47% of the company will have an extra ribbon on our dress uniforms and our guidon eventually will also be adorned with a range ribbon. Next week is search and rescue week, and everything will have to be loud and fast. If you’re too slow, you’ve got to go. We have also picked up new shipmates from other companies who are helping us get squared away with their extra weeks of knowledge.
