Boarded the decomishened battle ship and did a color gaurd for a change of command service for the NCIS [ Naval Criminal Investagative Service ]. We all got drenched on the rain. We boarded the bus and ate lunch and headed for the NSB, Bangor. There we visited the Marines The command fall in was givin as we fell in on the 5 Marines. There we did the Marine Corps daily 7. Side straddle hops, push-ups, stretches, leg lifts, sit-ups, and the a nice jog to the Obstacle course and rappelling tower. We ran the O- course then did a Sit-up and pull-up test. We the rappelled off the 50 FT. rappelling tower. We then boarded the bus and went to McDonalds... Then arrived back in dear old Monte High at 20:00 hours....
