Plebe year is over.
I was just recognized by the upperclassmen in my company ahead of time, since I won’t be here for the actual recognition ceremony tomorrow.
It’s so.. anticlimactic. I don’t know. It’s something that you look forward to all year, but in the end it’s just a hand shake and the upperclassman’s first name.
Still, I’m not a plebe anymore. This has been one of the most demanding years of my life. Not physically, but emotionally and mentally. It’s draining. I am emerging from my plebe year a completely different person than I came into it as. But it’s a new me. This is the Josh that’s gonna be a paratrooper in just over a month. This is the Josh that, God willing, will be leading an Infantry platoon in three more years.
Thank God this year is done. I’m ready to be a yuk. Anything but a plebe..
do you get shit for dating another cadet
Yep. Especially at first. But now that it’s been nearly 6 months, people don’t give me shit anymore.
