Romeo-192 Blog Week 05


This week has literally been a roller coaster. Here is the short list we had: SAR (Search and Rescue) week, orders came in, uniforms inspected, racks inspected, moving to Healy Hall, confidence course, and our first 05 minute phone call home as some of you found out. I’m sure there’s more that I’m missing as well.




SAR is literally wake up, muster, dress and off to chow in less than 15 minutes. We passed out uniform inspection with almost no one going on probation which made our Company Commanders happy, but our rack inspection saw nearly a third of the company on probation sporting the dreaded red belt. Another third had their wisdom teeth removed which gave them green belts. Marching around we looked like a weird Christmas parade that had zero holiday cheer. Most would have rather had coal than red belts. After we packed our things and moved to Healy Hall to join the more senior companies on the regiment. Now that we are considered a more senior company we must continue to act like it. We also completed the confidence course which our mentor Admiral Nadeau also dominated. After we were given time to ask him about our units and he gave us hope since we now have 20 days left. By next week’s log you should have received calls from us during our on base liberty.
