Hey folks, remember a few post back when I said " you bet I'm going back to sea"; well, I'm doing just that for the next two weeks. My bio says that one day I want to serve the military as an officer and that being the reason I came to Mass Maritime. I have had a firm interest in joining the U.S. Coast Guard since I was younger and Sea Term and just being at the Academy has affirmed that desire to serve in this branch. Now starting tomorrow, a dream of mine is coming true as I prepare myself to set out with the cadets of the U.S. Coast Guard Academy and sail with them for two weeks aboard their training vessel, the USCG Barque Eagle, the 295 foot tall ship. Along with the USCGA cadets, officer candidates, and fellow cadets from the other maritime academies, I will be training and experiencing life on Eagle and have an adventure that very few outside of the Coast Guard have ever done. It should be the experience of a lifetime and I can't wait. Only at MMA can someone get an experience like this. I'm sailing away again folks and many stories to come when I return in two weeks. Wish me luck! Talk to you all soon.
