Well sadly my time with 915 troop has ended, with me failing the bottom field pass out. My problem was with everything then in the last week i narrowed it down to the firemans carry, but i just couldnt get it cracked. i feel like a failure, i am totally having a f@#k at the momement i just moved into hunter 2 today and i could be out and in 916 troop by tommorow if i crack the pass out tommorow. Its hard knowing that im not going to pass out as an original but training isnt the corp and i know that none of this matters in a unit. So im still going to crack on and just finish training. I will miss 915, they are a great bunch of lads, everyone of them, and they told me today that in there eyes i will always be an original of 915 troop. So i guess not all is as bad as it seems, i just need to keep smiling and carrying on.

Next time, you'll be better prepared. It ain't over 'til you say it is.

You will still get to where you want to be and then none of this will matter.
Things like this can only make you more determined.

I was backtrooped with a knee injury and passed out 4 weeks after my original troop.
None of that mattered as we met up again in various units and bars over the years that followed. We still see each other often and our annual reunions include several men who didn't complete training at all for various reasons. As far as we're all concerned they're still one of us. We all live by the credo "Once a Marine always a Marine". The feeling the rest of your troop will have is "there but for the grace of God, go I"
Crack on Dalo, it's only pain.
