The End to the Greatest Summer

(Just for Fun, The Cadet Experience, Class of 2015) Permanent link   All Posts
Bilodeau Photo The beginning of August was the end of cadre. Watching the cadet candidates finish the CGAS program was satisfying and I look forward to seeing each one of the cadet candidates back next year for Swab Summer. After cadre, my friend and shipmate Mary Hazen, and I went to Sector Long Island Sound for the Marine Safety Inspection Program. We gave up a week of our leave to experience life at sector. We saw both the response and prevention sides of sector. The first day we responded to a boat that came loose from its mooring. Then, throughout the week, we shadowed the crew while they conducted a facilities inspection and a ferry inspection. We were also granted the opportunity to go to the station and drive the small boats.


The weekend before CAP week, Mary and I went to New York City. We ate delicious food, visited the Central Park Zoo, went to the Today Show, and we even met Luke Bryan and took a picture with him. The trip was definitely a great way to end the summer.


Mid-August started CAP week, followed by the start of the academic year. My classes this semester as an Operations Research major includes: NautSci III, Computer Modeling Languages, Probability Theory, Morals and Ethics, and Network and Non-Linear Optimization. It has been a good start to the academic year; I am pleased with the material in my classes and I have great professors.
