From California Glow to Connecticut Snow

(Choosing the Coast Guard Academy, Class of 2014) Permanent link   All Posts
 Brianna Townsend This past week has been one of the most hectic and fun weeks that I have had during my time at the Academy. My best friend, Megan, and I decided to spend our spring break with one of her family members rather than one of mine for a change. We spent a lot of time with her family and we did many things, such as driving from Arizona to Los Angeles, learning how to fly, seeing the Hollywood sign, and spending an ample amount of time in the sun. The majority of our time was spent in California, which I absolutely loved because it was my first time on the west coast and I plan on making many trips back.

Right now I am on the long flight from California to Connecticut, and as I sit here on this flight back to the Academy, it makes me realize just exactly why I am here. Spring leave was the first time that I have flown in uniform since Swab Summer, and the great respect that you get from people and the trust and confidence that they have in you is exactly why I wanted to come to the United States Coast Guard Academy.

Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoy the coming of spring!
