Newest cadets to report to Coast Guard Academy

Continue reading below

The newest class of cadets at the US Coast Guard Academy is reporting Monday for the start of the training program known as Swab Summer. The students from the class of 2017 will receive haircuts and uniforms on reporting-in day and go through drill practice before marching onto a field to swear an oath to defend the US Constitution. About 235 students — 36 percent of which are women — are expected to report but the academy says the exact makeup of the class will not be finalized until the end of Monday, when they begin a seven-week training program. Cadets in the four-year program graduate as junior officers with a bachelor of science degree and an obligation to serve five years in the Coast Guard.
