The One Time We're a Team

Chief Shavers forms up BMCSC 010-10 at the start and end of everyday during their electronic journalism course portion of their "A" school. Although the students are doing their individual assignments during the school day, they gather to recite the "Sailor's Creed" in the morning and sing "Anchors Aweigh" at the end of the day.
"This is the one time we're all a team." -- MCC Sam Shavers

Both the creed and the song are done while at attention in respect to those who've served before us.

"Hooyah Navy" is declared pridefully by BMCSC 010-10. The doors are held open by students of the class for everyone in Defense Information School to hear.
