At the end of Week 05, Alpha Company is seeing the comradery that has been built within the company. All throughout the Confidence Course today, shipmates were cheering on other shipmates.

Search and Rescue week has taught Alpha-198 how to work together as a well-oiled machine. Getting us ready for our final 03 weeks at Cape May.

Like every week, however, it has been painful, emotional, and exciting. With the company having their eyes on their first duty stations and on our time as a senior company at Cape May, we are ready for Week 06.

Every second, minute, hour, day, and week is full of new challenges and surprises regardless the training we are receiving. Alpha-198 will always be Semper Paratus.
