NOAA Corps BOTC 126 and USCG OCS 1-16 reported to the USCG Academy in New London, CT on Wednesday 29 July 2015. The 10 new officers have been through a whirlwind of classes and military training during their first week of indoctrination with their 81 USCG shipmates.
NCOTC wanted to thank LCDR Perry, LCDR Adler, LT Pereira, and Ron Cunningham for going to set the new class up for success during their administration training prior to checking in at the Academy. Special thanks go to Captain Albert E. Theberge, NOAA (Ret.) for giving the ensigns a webinar on NOAA Corps History, and Salim Abddeen and CDR Hobson-Powell for providing "EEO" and "Medical Standards in the NOAA Corps" presentations respectively. BOTC 126 ended their first week of training with a visit from ENS Head and ENS Seberger who shared sea stories and advice from the NOAA Ship Thomas Jefferson. Very special thank yous to ENS DeCastro and LT Meckley for their assistance during the first three weeks of training and continued support.
BOTC 126 is eager and willing to meet other NOAA employees and NOAA Corps officers, so if you are in the area please contact CAPT John Caskey and he will find a time for you to talk with them.
