I am old and technologically unsophisticated, so I just this month found out what a podcast is. The other day while traveling between coasts, I ran across a podcast called "The Coast Guard Years Podcast" by a guy named Tim Gonzales. The 10 episodes are a first person telling of Mr. Gonzales' Cape May boot camp experience in 1987. Granted, 1987 was long before most current recruits were even born, and boot camp then was probably a lot different in many ways than boot camp now. (Not saying it was better or worse, just different.)
I was in boot camp in 1991, so the experince described in the podcast was pretty much exactly how boot camp was for me. I found it to be entertaining, and frequently humorous.
If you're an old fart with a sense of nostalgia, particularly if you were a boot in the late eighties, early nineties, I recommend this podcast. If you went to Cape May, you will laugh at and enjoy this podcast.
If you are a young'un who is going soon to boot camp or has already been recently, I encourage you to check it out too. I'm sure much of it relates to the modern age too. If nothing else, it may give you something to chuckle at.
I have no connection with this podcast, and I don't know Gonzales, so I'm not endorsing this podcast for any personal gain. I just thought it was fun to listen to, and brought back some fond and frightening memories.
