The Return from Winter Leave

(The Cadet Experience, Class of 2014) Permanent link   All Posts
 Brianna Townsend The spring semester has officially begun and I am very excited to start my new classes. This semester I am taking a few different classes such as macroeconomics and personal self defense. After returning from winter leave, our fourth-class responsibilities have taken some time to get used to again, but it is coming back to everyone. Knowing that I was returning to those tasks, I made the most out of my winter break by going on trips and spending time with my family and friends.

The best part of my break was when my family spent a week on a cruise ship and visited numerous tropical islands. The warm weather was not the only part that made it pleasant; I also got to see a Coast Guard rescue take place. A man on our ship was having health issues and a Coast Guard helicopter had to lift him from the ship while it was still moving at a slow pace. They successfully got him off the boat and to a nearby hospital. This situation instilled in me an immense amount of pride in my service, but it was unfortunate that this man had to become ill for it to take place. I look forward to being involved in these rescues in the future, but for now I am going to focus on this semester.
