Since stepping off of the bus, a decision was made. If we haven’t had any big moments yet, we’ve definitely had our biggest now. We have made a decision to go the extra mile to change our lives and the lives of the people we have chosen to serve. This week has been eye opening and challenging in ways that would make an average person lose their minds. The theme of the week…self-discipline. This is a key factor of life that not everyone can conceptualize and this past week, W-195 has been gaining more and more of it. Every day we workout and are constantly practicing traditional military customs and courtesies. Yes, we do get yelled at and worked out often for the little things that we do wrong and miss, but getting rid of our civilian habits will instill self-discipline and build us into the military members we have chosen to be. If you are reading this, someone close to you is in the process of becoming a functioning, and contributing member of the Coast Guard. No matter what, and despite the hardships, we will prevail.
