2/c Summer Recap

(The Cadet Experience, Class of 2017) Permanent link   All Posts
Seaman Photo Hello! I realize it has been a long time since my last blog, but that just means I will have a lot to talk about on this one! I am at the beginning of my first semester of 2/c year, which means I just finished cadre summer. It was a great experience transitioning into being a leader from previous follower and mentor roles. Working with the swabs and watching them develop into 4/c was extremely valuable. The summer was also filled with parts other than being a cadre. For example, we participated in a two-week sailing program called Coastal Sail, which allowed us to sail to places in New England like Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. It was a blast learning how to sail, interact with people, and lead a crew.


Another week a group of us went to Air Station Mobile in Alabama to learn about aviation. This week was another one of my favorites. We got to fly Coast Guard helicopters and use the simulators at the air station. This week fueled my interest in aviation and solidified my desire to become a pilot. My hope is to go to an air station during my “firstie” summer to get even more exposure to aviation. That is what I have been up to for the last couple of months; I look forward to writing more about the academics during 2/c year once I get a bit farther into the semester!
