    Been noticing that the past few incoming recruits have been split into two companies. How is it decided who goes to each company? Is it alphabetical, etc?

    It's based on the size of the company, and it won't be happening anytime soon. The incoming companies are too small.  The ones that were split were due to the hurricane cancelling ship dates.

    Should be Papa, yes. Things could always change though, so don't pass out the address just yet. Ask again next week and we will know for sure.

    Companies Juliet & Kilo started on October 23rd, that was a week before the hurricane. Lima & Mike just started the week before Thanksgiving so I am sure that was due to extras coming in because of the hurricane. I think it happened for a couple of companies after Irene last year. Quebec & Romeo, Sierra & Tango, I think.

    So i've been looking on the uscg.mil site for what company i'll be in and hadn't seen or figured it out yet. Probally too far out. I leave 18 DEC 12. Question is what is the number that is on the end of the companies? Just trying to figure out what it stands for

    The number is how many times they've cycled through the alphabet at Tracen Cape May.

    The group that started last night (with Heather G and Catahoula) was split into two I believe. If I wanted to write to one of them, how would I know which company to address?

    I ship out on Tues Dec 4 and I cannot figure out what company I will be in either. Its a little confusing because the holidays and Sandy screwed up the company names.

    You will find out when you get there. Without knowing the hall you are in, it really doesn't matter much anyway.

    Yesterday was November-187... if there is a split it will be November & Oscar. Then next week will Papa or Papa & Quebec. If this week did not split you will be Oscar.

    This is why I preach please do not attempt to guess your company name weeks, even months in advance. So many variables can change so many times! We do our best to speculate but that is all that it is... speculation! But no matter what your company name, friends and family will find you!

    OG-If we wanted to write to someone that could be in November or October what would your advice be on addressing the envelope?

    That will work... it won't get there quick. But please put both complete full & first names. If you just write C. Smith there could be 20 C Smith's there and without a company who would know which one?!?! But if you write Christian Smith MAYBE there will be only one. You could add a line in between SR & Traning Center "November or Oscar187" That will narrow the search to those companies. If you think you will get the address from the form letter, family or other friends, best thing to do would be to wait a couple of days and then send a properly addressed letter.

    I would make contact with the family of the recruit you are wanting to write and get the company and hall from them…all of my letters addressed to recruits that were held back for some reason or another were always returned to sender. I had one recruit get split and I had to use southern to find them, every letter was coming back. But if no family contacts then as Old Guard suggests is your best option.

    I can also send some supportive letters to whomever, from an old fire captain if you feel they would like that…just PM some intel. The guys at the fire house are always disappointed when I do not request we stop by the post office when out and about on the fire truck :-)
