On this Memorial Day we’re releasing a special episode centered on where service begins for most - where the names and stories of those who gave their lives in service to the nation are learned by each new generation in the hopes recruits will be willing to follow their example and risk the same if so called upon.
Service academies and colleges nationwide have active and powerful alumni associations, but those who enlist and substitute boot camp for higher education lack any similar organization they can leverage for their own social and professional network, or to give back to better the institution that positively impacted their lives. With tens of thousands of potential members who have completed boot camp, the Coast Guard Recruit Training Alumni
is looking to change this.
In this special episode we trade boot camp stories and talk the stand-up of the Alumni with veteran enlisted leaders, including 10th MCPOCG Skip Bowen, President of the CPOA John Ostrowski, TRACEN Cape May Command Master Chief Dave Pace, and the Alumni’s public affairs lead Dick Brahm.
