    Recognition is just a little over a week away. For those that have been there and done that, what advise (other than "grin and bear it" and "enjoy the ride" ) could you give a doolie to prepare for it?

    Be a team player. Concentrate on your buddy.

    Know your knowledge. Quotes, in particular, are important.

    Shine your shoes. Know where all your uniform items are.

    Hydrate.


    And, oh yeah, enjoy the ride :yllol:

    Thanks Falcongirl, I'll pass it on and hope that the class of '16 get through recognition unscathed and earn their props and wing soon.

    congrats

    I agree. Hydrate, take care your buddy, knowledge, and there will be nothing like it so you will never forget it. My son is a C2C and he will help with the assault course and he cannot believe the short time it seems that he was in your place now. Very proud of yourself when those prop and wings go on however and then your upperclassman become human to you. I have a picture of my C2C after his Recognition marching back from Jack's valley with such a smile and sense of relief on his face. He was going up the core values ramp when he realized IT WAS OVER! Anticipate great intensity the first 24 hours!! Your Cadre are fresh then. My son expressed however that your cadre will be professional with you and they have been reminded of that. It is all in tradition and fun. Just one more step towards Commission! Good luck and congrats.

    Most people don't know their own limits. This is a good chance to find out how much further than you "limit" you can go.

    Do you best, support your classmates, and DON'T QUIT.
    It's worth it.

    You've been taught and learned everything you need to know since you've been there. Put all those lessons to use and you will be just fine.
