    To friends and family of 2022 plebe candidates: I heard from my DD 2021 today who is working the waterfront for INDOC. She taught sailing this morning, and says all the plebe candidates had a blast.

    kpmom2013, thanks for sharing that info. It's nice that they were by the water today, the Accuweather RealFeel is 104 degrees...ouch! For some of the P/Cs from drier or milder climates, this heat wave can be brutal. I did notice thru the pics that the Drill Instructors were doing a good job with mandatory hydration.

    There is mandatory hydration. There is water. There is Gatorade. There are things inside. I do think those PC's from the southern gulf states have a little edge in the summer. They of course loose that edge when it goes below 50 degrees and they experience cold and/or snow :)

    Thanks for sharing that! I saw one picture of DS where they were getting training before they went out.
