I am starting this forum for friends and family of Coast Guard Recruit Company Oscar 185 (ship date August 9th, graduation date September 30th, 2011).
There seems to be a page for every other company so I started this one. I did copy this from November company.
My daughter Kaitlyn started with November company and due to injuries has been reverted to Oscar company.
Please share any information here about this company!
This is the mailing address for the company. They are in Munro Hall, so their address is formatted as:
SR Last name, First Initial. Middle initial.(son's or daughter's name here)
Oscar-185, Munro Hall
USCG Training Center
One Munro Avenue
Cape May, NJ 08204-5083
I heard this about mail: No food, newspaper clippings, magazines,glitter, and singing cards are permitted in mail. The Company Commanders will give your recruit grief if you try to send such items.
A Facebook page for this company has already been established. Login to Facebook, search for "USCG Oscar 185", and you should find it. It is a "closed" group, which means you have to ask permission to join, which is done to keep out those with little relation to this Company.
Also their is family page for all companys as well, USCG Parents, Families and Friends this should be the link http://www.facebook.com/groups/134848316599261/
Hope this helps!
I must add the staff (clergy, doctors, and CCs) have been absolutely wonderful and the support on these forums has helped!
