Swab summer: How it started

By MyCG Staff

The newest members of the Corps of Cadets have arrived at the Coast Guard Academy to begin Swab Summer. For the next few weeks, the Swabs experience the first part of their U.S. Coast Guard Academy journey towards becoming an officer in the U.S. Coast Guard. Swab Summer is designed to be challenging, both physically and mentally, to help prepare these young women and men for Academy and military life.

Stay tuned for “how it’s going” videos later this summer.
