1966 - USCG Recruit Company Romeo 63 (R-63), left side

USCG Recruit Training Center, Cape May, New Jersey


After eight weeks of training we were a lean, mean fighting machine. We were BM1 Bell's first recruit company and he darn near killed us to show what a great company commander he was. Though at the time I really disliked him, he was great, and so were we after eight weeks of his training.
