100th Week and Swab Summer

(The Cadet Experience, Class of 2015) Permanent link   All Posts
Kloo Photo It is finally spring, and that means that the end of the school year is fast approaching. With it brings warm weather, spring crew, and finals. It also brings us closer to 100th week. This week is the culmination of leadership training for 3/c cadets, and brings them into the role of 2/c class. This training is conducted by the Recruit Training Center company commanders who are responsible for the training all the incoming enlisted personnel for Coast Guard. This is an incredibly important time period, because it allows us to practice our leadership on our classmates and receive immediate feedback from the people who know basic recruit training the best. Team dynamics are also developed during 100th week, allowing each member of our cadre team to fall into a role that suits them most comfortably. I will be Swab Summer 1, which means that I will be interacting with the incoming swabs in and around Chase Hall. It is also my section’s responsibility to provide them the basic training required to complete the rest of the summer, as well as the school year. I am excited to be able to work with such qualified personnel, and to train the future of the Coast Guard.
