and when you talk to him/her on your phone call, get his box number for use on the mail. If you know his/her company number and platoon number from the pictures you see, place it somewhere on the envelope, as it will assist in getting it to the right place. and, mail usually takes 4-5 days.

I have his box number but I have heard that for Indoc I should not address letters to him to that box number, rather than the general address above. Do you know what is correct?

Back in the day, we were NOT allowed to do anything other than sleep once it was lights out. . .

“Approximately 281 candidates are participating in 2021 Indoctrination. This is day 6 of a total of 21 days of Indoctrination.

Under the leadership of Regimental Waterfront Office (RDW) Midshipman Nicholas Supry, 2018, trainers set up four basic seamanship skill stations; Fire fighting, Heaving Lines, Anchors and Compasses and Knot Tying.

Trainers for Fire Fighting: Alexis Lytle 2020, Mike Healy 2018 and Bill Stuckart 2020; Heaving Lines: Alex Stoyka 2020; Knot Tying: John Gallagher 2020 and Bryan White 2020; Anchors and Compasses: Patrick Lyle 2019.

Colton McClintock, Plebe Candidate from New Orleans, LA, volunteered to help the trainers extinguish the fire at the Fire Fighting station. J.C. Engel, Plebe Candidate from Austin, TX, also helped put out the fire for his group. In the videos of Fire Fighting, it is difficult to identify the Candidates as they are wearing what is called a flash hood for protection.

Midshipman Steve Hinton, Waterfront Ex. Indoctrination, spent the morning on the LIBERATOR with a large group of Candidates. While sailing to the Brothers Island, southeast of Manhattan, the Candidates learned survival skills, line handling, man overboard and each had some steerage time. You can see these Candidates in the group of photos – they are the largest group.

It was a great day at Yocum Sailing Center. The candidates were eager to learn new skills. The Trainers were very knowledgeable and spent time at each station answering all the Candidates questions.

It was terrific to see all the happy faces throughout the day.

Enjoy the photos and videos that are posted. And check back throughout the week as more photos are posted.”

Not sure if this would be the right place to post this, but does anyone know if we're allowed to send Plebes pictures from home?
