    The new years log entry is an old naval tradition, with the entry traditionally being written in verse. Courtesy of the Coast Guard Compass, here is the Training Center Cape May Midnight Log Entry for New Years Eve 2012
    By Chief Warrant Officer Donnie Brzuska

    There are 326 recruits asleep in their racks
    while they are haunted by images of CCs hot on their tracks. 
    For them, there will be no count down to zero.
    At this Coast Guard unit, we’re too busy trying to make heroes.

    There will no phone call from the New Year’s Eve party.
    They’ll just be rushing to watch so as not to be tardy.
    No Facebook, no texts or no email to ring it all in.
    All they get is a shiver from the cold Jersey Shore wind.

    Their bodies are sore from the hustle and grind.
    Their brains hurt from all the information put in their minds.
    They’ve marched all day long with backpacks attached.
    They have to stand guard so their bags are not snatched.

    They’ve hustled from seamanship down to the gym.
    Off to the confidence course and then back again.
    They’ll start 2012 with their company run,
    And for them, this will be the definition of fun.

    They’ll push and struggle and give every bit,
    Because they face reversion if they ever do quit.
    You’ll never hear them complain or once make a peep,
    About only getting a few hours of sleep.

    Because they all know, it all has a purpose,
    And they can expect more when they enter the Service.
    They will ship to destinations unknown,
    Which may even be further away from their home.

    From counter-narcotics to saving lives and all missions in between,
    They will face dangers yet to be seen.
    To protect, to defend, to save and to shield,
    The Coast Guard in its missions will never yield.

    We’ve trained them well. We think the best,
    So when it comes time, they can rise to the test.
    So whereever you are toasting your holiday cheer,
    Find comfort in knowing a Coast Guardsman is near.

    From near to far and from far to near,
    There’s a good chance that that Coast Guardsman started right here

    That's great! I was on watch, and we did absolutely nothing. I was disappointed
    Honor: if you need it defined, you don’t have it.

    Colin said his ship wrote one and as soon as he can, he will send me the one from the Seneca. So I'm anxious to see it. I have it from 2 years ago when they were underway.
