A group has been made on facebook but it says we'll be graduating May 6th. I calculated May 13th. The group who leaves this week is going to be Uniform 184, so that makes us Victor 184. Maybe Old Guard or someone with a little more knowledge can help verify the graduation date or something for us. Here's the link.

The easiest way to calculate your graduation date is to count 8 Fridays from arrival counting that first Friday. May 6th is your graduation.
I, for one, welcome our new insect overlords. I'd like to remind them that as a trusted Coastie, I can be helpful in rounding up others to toil in their underground sugar caves.

ahaha no thanks! I'm good to go with May 6th.

I don't know about the rest of my fellow shipmates that will be going to boot with me, but I'll throw out the list of things I'm going to try and bring (may do without one or two items). I'm usually a procrastinator so I'm trying to get everything taken care of today and tomorrow so I can relax the rest of the week. I've searched all over this site reading what others have recommended bringing extra so maybe it'll help a few others out. I'd double check TSA Standards as far as the toothpaste and deo go. If all else fails, just follow your Helmsman and ignore this list.

* Gold Bond
* 2-3 White V-Necks (read we'll wear only 1, extras were used to shine boots)
* 5-7 Pairs of White Crew (Tube) socks, maybe mix in a few pair of black crew socks as well
* 2 Pairs of BLACK dress socks
* 7 Pairs of white underpants (briefs or boxers, gray waistband is ok)
* Mach 3 Razor w/8-12 Cartridges
* Toothpaste (apparently the one we're issued isn't that great)
* Deodorant (They issue Right Guard, and I've read it isn't that great as well)
* Stationary Pad
* Envelopes
* Stamps
* Phone Card
* $50-$100 Cash
* a voided check
* Wallet with your Debit Card, Social Security Card, and ID

Christy/Noah, the only two females I know that are shipping is myself and LoriJavi (assuming that’s her in the picture lol.) There are many reasons why I joined but the main one is because I want to do something productive with my life. Cody, thanks for the list! I still haven’t gotten any of my stuff yet. I need to get on that asap. Only one week left!

Hey new recruits for the March 15th ship date! Please let your families know we have a facebook page setup for the company and we would love to have them join us there.  You are welcome, too of course! It is your page when you graduate so you all can stay in touch as your ship out to your stations.  Here is the link:

Go Victor 184!!

If anyone has any questions about Boot Camp or the Fleet, I just graduated about 3 months ago, so I can help anyone that needs or has any questions about that or what life is like so far in the U.S.C.G

Hey, I'm shipping out March 22 and I am wondering if there is going to be a Facebook page for my company as well. How are these created anyway?

Matt, did you end up needing the calling card it says to bring in the Helmsman? How is it being a nonrate at your first unit? Was everyone pretty cool when you arrived or were they pretty hard on you? I understand that probably varies from unit to unit, just curious how your experience has been.
