Happy Thanksgiving!

 Alexander Lloyd It’s hard to believe there is just three weeks left before the end of the semester. Between school work, sailing, and the other duties that accompany a 1/c cadet, the semester has been a blur. It is surreal knowing that my fourth fall season of offshore sailing has come to an end. We placed fourth in the nation in the Kennedy Cup, which not only was the last regatta of the season but the last big boat regatta of my cadet career. Sailing has been amazing experience in which I’ve gained lifelong memories with my teammates including taking first place in the J44 Class in the 2010 Newport to Bermuda Race.

Aside from schoolwork, anticipation is building for graduation, which is just right around the corner. We will soon be receiving the list of available billets for our class, which are the assignments around the Coast Guard fleet in which we will serve our first two years upon graduation. Of course, flight school is still the number one choice in my mind. Interviews will take place in January!

I wish all readers and their families a very happy Thanksgiving. To all those that have submitted their applications to be part of the class of 2016, I wish you the best of luck!
