    Possibly Foxtrot-191. It is a little too far out yet to give an assurance that is accurate. However, if there are no skipped weeks or split companies, that's what you are on track for. But don't run out and get a Foxtrot tattoo. This information is subject to change!

    I have to agree memorizing them was easy. My challenge came from being able to say them out of order at the drop of a hat. I keep repeating them in my head during the day. All my friends think I'm nuts for saying my count down, 27 days now!

    Less than two weeks! Looks like barring any large companies or weather foul ups, we will be Echo 191. Can't wait to train with you guys and gals.

    Where are you guys coming from? I'm in Tampa, FL. It looks like Alfa-191 started kn 03/10 so we might be echo-191 if no company gets decided in to two.

    For Robins mom and the rest of you... There is a Facebook group, USCG Moms. Great bunch of crazy ladies. Please message an admin to join, tell your moms to join. Any questions, there are ladies with a multitude of experiences. They are happy to help. There is also a lot of hand holding and comforting, some moms have a hard time with it, others go with the flow. So tell your moms... Robins mom, hope to see you there. Tell the admins Macie Robertson sent you over, I'm a member as well.

    Also, everyone shipping, don't forget... DATE NIGHT with your mom. Go out to dinner and leave all the electronics in the car, at home, wherever... Just sit and talk, laugh, cry, hold hands... Remember your moms love you, they're going to miss you more than you can imagine. Give them a couple of completely uninterrupted hours. You won't regret it. Good luck!!!

    Yeah sounds like it, I know at least one other person coming with me to Tampa on Monday plus there's usually one or two more.

    Thanks OldGuard, my mom is Facebook illiterate but I told my FB liaison about the groups so she's going to join E191 group. Yes having date night Monday night so it'll be perfect, right before I leave. One week!

    THANK YOU so much for the info, Old Guard2. I will definitely check out the group on facebook and a date night sounds GREAT!! If I am thinking correctly, the company is Echo 191 and hoping for graduation on May 29th. My recruit is ready, me on the other hand, not so much.

    Your mind will likely change within those 4 months post basic. I went from AST to BM to TC. Get to a major cutter so you can see most ratings in action.

    Enjoy!

    TC? I'm hoping for a large cutter myself. Due to my background, I'll probably stay ME but I am open to change. Just probably won't happen

    So seeing other threads I'm slightly confused. Will we be Echo 191 or Delta?

    Looks like you will be Delta. Charlie shipped on the 31st. So the next group of shippers is April 7th. After Charlie, comes Delta. This is why I do not like to guess and generally SHOUT this is a GUESS because I didn't know there was going to be a week skipped. March 24th, there were no shippers. So they don't skip the letter assigned to that week, it just goes to the next week.

    That is the BEST resource for the information. It is posted in both the FAQ section and Family section.

    As an aspiring AST I am curious what made you change your mind.
