U.S. COAST GUARD BASIC TRAINING: THE CAPE MAY PREPARATION GUIDE
The Cape May Preparation Guide! Congratulations for making the decision to join the greatest military the world has ever known. Of these five branches of the U.S. military, the USCG has been ranked as the most intellectually demanding and second only to the U.S. Marines in physicality. This is why you will need a preparation guide and every advantage that you can acquire before entering the gates of Cape May NJ. I have written this book specifically to help prepare you for the most challenging aspects of basic training as a potential future recruit, along with helpful hints from myself and fellow Coasties. As a USCG Veteran, I will help to mentor you and pass down the knowledge that my shipmates and I never received prior to our training. No matter what has led you to join the CG, you should take basic training seriously. In my basic training experience, I watched helplessly as so many of my shipmates tapped out due to stress or were reverted due to the inability to endure the rigorous demands of our Company Commanders. The last thing that you want to do at Cape May is spend more time there as a recruit! Use the accumulated knowledge of this book in preparation to shipping off for basic training and your chances for success will be greatly improved. Yes “it’s only 8 weeks,” but how will your 8 weeks at TRACEN Cape May be remembered and how will your Coast Guard career commence? Here Is A Preview Of What You'll Learn...
