Romeo-192 Blog Week 06

Today marks a momentous day for Romeo Company. The recruits had an opportunity to use their cellular devices for the first time in 06 weeks!!! In the early morning after chow, we were led to the gym to work on physical fitness in the form of weight training. After two hours of building muscle with one of our Company Commanders, our recruits headed off to the local Coast Guard Station and to one of the 87 foot patrol boats stationed at Cape May. The staff was very approachable and gave us a tour of both the inside and outside of the vessels. After Departing the Cutter we headed off to a uniform inspection prior to liberty. Unfortunately some shipmates were wearing the incorrect uniforms which resulted in a rush to fix and correct the issue. After the company was deemed acceptable, we were given our cell phones for a five hour period of on base liberty. Several shipmates used this time to visit the Coast Guard Exchange (grocery store) to pick up necessary supplies such as razors, toothpaste, ice cream, etc. Romeo-192 then spent the evening calling family members and friends at the local restaurant called the Harborview, After liberty the company returned for evening routine filled with uniform and squadbay maintenance, showers, mail and prayer time. Today was a very important day for Romeo which wrapped up another week of training and gave us the opportunity to call loved ones and friends and family. The Company Commanders are beginning to give us more freedom, so as a company we must maintain our military bearing and never forget the Coast Guard Core Values of Honor, Respect, and Devotion to Duty, R-192 OUT!
