    Hey all,

    Well I survived swab summer round 2 and am proud to say that I am now a 4/c and it feels awesome to have the shoulderboards I longed for this time last year. We're about halfway through CAP week and are getting ready to start classes on Monday! I have a pretty tough first semester but I am looking forward to the challenge. Swab Summer this year was the same but different, there were several differences in training style that I noticed between 2011 as cadre and 2012 as cadre but both were equally effective! Although I was in Charlie for swab summer, I am now in Alfa for 4/c year, despite the rumor that swabs would be staying in their swab summer companies. If anyone has any questions at all, please feel free to PM me and I will do my best to answer or find the answer to your question!

    -T&F

    Excellent! Good for you T&F! I was hoping you'd post and let us long timers know that you made it through, safe and sound and in one piece. :biggrin:

    Take on the year with the same determination that got you back to CGA for round two of Swab Summer and you'll surely do well.

    Congratulations again!

    Of course. Even-year cadre classes train even-year swab classes, resulting in their superior training traditions continuing to move forward. :wink:

    Same rumor comes up every year. You'll also change companies once more at the beginning of your 3/c year, and remain there for the rest of the time you are there.

    Congrats on getting through Swab Summer, now get ready for the hard part!

    :cool:
