Week 07 Summary


This last week has been a total blur. Tons of graduation preparation, travel arrangements and administrative time. Everyone’s gearing up for their first duty station and making arrangements to rent houses and buy ourselves new trucks. We had finals, along with a manual of arms/close order drill test. Some shipmates in Foxtrot-195 are getting a little eager to graduate so the squad leaders have to constantly remind them that boot camp isn’t over yet and to lock it up!


We have gotten to debrief with some of the Command and also had a class about retirement benefits, which is rather weird to ponder so early in our careers, but it’s imperative we plan accordingly now in order to be successful and comfortable. I can’t even begin to describe what it feels like to be treated like adults again and working members of the Coast Guard! We got the T-shirts and sweatshirts we designed and FOXTROT-195 is the talk of the regiment! Boot camp has taken a drastic and dramatic turn for the better as we are just a few short days from graduation!
