The End Has Finally Come!

(The Cadet Experience, Class of 2014) Permanent link   All Posts
 Brianna Townsend Finally! I have finally made it through all of my classes as a 4/c cadet at the Coast Guard Academy, and the only thing that stands between me and an amazing summer in the fleet, is final exams. Don’t get me wrong; I don’t exactly want this year to end because it has been one of the most life-changing and best times in my entire life. This year was a stepping stone on the path that I will have to take during my time at the Academy, and it might have been one of the hardest but it was also one of the most enjoyable.

The end of 4/c year brings many exciting and nerve-wracking events in our lives. We all just received our new company assignments and everyone is extremely thrilled to be in a company for the next three years that they will be spending at the Academy. We also are all very ecstatic about our summer assignments in the fleet, and learning what the Coast Guard is like outside the Academy. This is the first time that many of us will be in the fleet and we are all very eager to learn and experience life in the operational Coast Guard. My summer travels will bring me to Ireland, Germany, London, and Virginia Beach. I am overjoyed to be visiting all of these places, and I look forward to telling you about my travels during the summer and when I return.
