    My DS just accepted his appointment - YEAH! Wondering who else may be joining USCGA Class of 2015? Maybe we can start a running list of classmates.

    Congrats!! That is awesome news.

    A word to the wise...make sure not to give out any identifying information...you don't want to make Rday any harder.

    I do recall a Facebook page being made for previous classes. The invite only feature made it a safer place for the kids to connect without worry. Not saying Cadre would search out future swabs, but better safe than sorry!

    Again, congrats!

    I'm saying that cadre WILL search out info on Facebook. Not necessarily to use it against you, just to see what kind of person you are.

    Agree with RCS...and they're already doing it too. I spoke with a couple of 3/c. Just a warning that you should watch what you say because there are already a couple the cadre have pegged as the arrogant person who knows everything. The goal for swab summer should be for no one outside your company to know who you are.

    Strongly recommend staying off Facebook. Best way to connect with other shipmates from the class of 2015 is to join your USCGA Parents Association. Each chapter hosts a Swab Picnic or Hail and Farewell get together in early to mid-June for the incoming Swabs. It is not only a great place to meet and get to know your fellow shipmates before R-Day but also for parents to get helpful tips to support their cadet in the up coming challenges.

    We encourage everyone to join the official Class of 2015 FB Group: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=167741349911560

    It's a closed group only for appointees, so you'll need admin approval to gain access...non-members will only be able to view your profile if you allow it, so I would recommend checking your privacy settings if you're worried about someone (Class of 2013 or otherwise) learning about you via FB.
