Go Coast Guard

(Extracurricular Activities and Faith-Based Involvement, Class of 2012) Permanent link   All Posts
 Ronaqua Russell Last weekend was one of the best I have had this year. The Academy Glee Club had two performances one at Foxwoods resort and the other at the Jets Game. We received a standing ovation at a program for the Special Olympics, and a stadium full of people cheering for us at the game. As we walked off the football field we could hear things like “Go Coast Guard,” as well as receiving good remarks from officers and enlisted who marched on with Sector New York. This was definitely one of those once in a lifetime experiences that I would not have had otherwise. As a cadet there are so many opportunities that we can take part in from going to a Jets game, to going to see a Broadway Play or a NHL game.

Now I sit, waiting for Thanksgiving to come so I can soak up some sunshine back home. Leave is definitely on every cadet’s mind as we have two more days of classes before we can go. A few days of relaxing, before coming back, hitting the books for a couple more weeks, and then Christmas. Happy Turkey Day!
