    There are new videos on the Coast Guard's recruiting website that are worth a look.  The cameras follow a handful of recruits through the basic training process, starting at the recruiting office.  There are more videos coming out soon, but they posted up to week 4 so far.  All of these people went to basic training last summer.

    The Company Commander on the main page is PO Vandenberg.  If you're lucky enough, you will get to meet him at Sexton Hall.  devil


    Enjoy:

    Funny story about this. Tonight me, ashpod, and tara were at a veterans banquest that honored veterans past present and future. We swore in with about 100 other recruits in front of about 200 people. There were some celebs there aswell. I also met a guy who was in X-ray 181 who you can see as a backround in the videos and I looked it up and was like WOAH haha.

    I was in Bravo 182 and X-Ray was our sister company sorta. They taught us how to stand watch. I recognize several people in those videos. One person from that company, who you see in every video, got reverted to our company. When the first video came out, I was like, 'OMG! I know these people!' lol

    He's a great guy, and he loves what he does.

    Haha, PO Vandenburg did ceremonial for about a week prior to his Sexton hall duties while I went through with ECHO-183.

    All our company commanders made fun of the Company he started with for about a week before he got moved to sexton hall, called them 'So shitty that their CC quit on them.' referring to PO Vandenburg changing to forming for Sexton Hall. ;P

    I also hear that PO Morgan will be joining PO Vandenburg as some of the new Sexton Hall forming company commanders.

    I feel sorry for those future recruits! That's going to be one tough weekend!

    AMT2 Vandenberg was my company commander in Charlie 183. He is by far one of the biggest influences in my life thus far, and a truly great man. Hilarious too (once you stop getting beaten towards the end)

    Vandenberg is a riot. I was in his first company Oscar 180. He was always getting stuff mixed up, and coming back ten minutes later saying "Belay my last." He cracked jokes all the time, and made me "suck that fart up like a hoover vac." when the guy in front of me passed gas and i laughed. He also like to check himself out in the mirrors too. All around great guy, and excellent CC. Takes his job serious and really cares about the development of his companies. Hope I get to work for him one of these days.
