    AHHHH, the time of year when everyone wonders when recognition is! Well, it is when it is. from what I know, last year was the first year the kids REALLy didn't have a clue when it was. They were called into formation and then "the games began". Post when it's occurred ok?? We can't wait to see the youtube entries on it!

    Last year it was a Saturday. My understanding it can be any day of the week.

    This is from the class of 2010's recognition, but it looks a lot like the photos I saw from last year: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xYzo6lFqLiQ

    There is a "Run for Recongnition" with various challenges to be completed. Sort of like an obstacle course. Whatever the upperclasses can think of.

    if they push hard here for the remaining time, it might just happen soon. they do need to keep up the motivation, though. although it gets easier as the anticipation builds:biggrin:

    DISCLAIMER: i am not a member of the training staff and therefore have no specific nor reliable information on the issue of date. :wink:

    Wait until sea year. Right now I know DS is somewhere between Houston and Suez.:eek: Seriously, you'll know when it happens - they'll be happy to share that they're no longer plebes.:thumb:

    Understand that Recognition has NOT started. The Plebe to Plebe Candidate was because some of the kids were not doing what they were suppose to be doing. Don't know when it will start. Not from my DS but someone that does know.

    KDBax....I hear you about not hearing......they somehow manage facebook postings to the world however right?...and though I am a ship tracker stalker, his ship has never shown up. Guess its b/c it's basically a floating liquid bomb. Wish I could see recognition. Mud pits, shaving cream, oinking, squawking, waddling, what a trip!:shake:

    We had a festering garbage pit, in the snow, as one of our recognition obstacles.
