In addition to serving as cadre for swab summer, AIM, CGRIT, or Eagle, the 2/c's have an extensive summer training. For one week they learn to be cadre from the "DI's" from Cape May. They go down to Washington DC for small arms training for a week. They get helicopter/fixed wing aircraft training in Alabama. The sail on the 44-foot Luders boats in the New England area for a week and get training on the SCANTS(deck simulator). At some point they do a three-week stint as cadre, depending on which option they choose. In all a very busy summer ahead.
