New cadets of Bravo Company braved the House of Tears gas chamber on July 30, 2013. Through the coughing, a new cadet described the gas feeling like "swallowing a fireball, then lighting a firework inside." At the end of the exercise, Jozlyn McCaw '14, Bravo Company Commander, stated that all 127 new cadets of Bravo Company passed. She said, "The biggest thing is that, at the end of the day, they all march away with confidence in their equipment -- that's what really matters."
