Upon completing this ruck march, new cadets are brought to the companies they will spend the academic year in.There are four regiments in the Corps of Cadets, and these are numbered. In each regiment, there are three numbered battalions. In each battalion, there are the companies organized alphabetically. 1st Battalion has A, B, and C companies, 2nd Battalion has D, E, and F companies, and 3rd Battalion has G, H, and I companies. So people identify with their company by name (I am in E2, which is E company in 2nd Regiment) and by mascot (E2's mascot is the Brewdawgs).

Once the new cadets make it through this event, they are given their team leader, a Yearling (sophomore) cadet whose job is to ensure that their new cadet is taken care of and learning throughout the academic year. The team leader is perhaps the greatest ally to a new cadet who is fresh out of high school and without military experience because they are not far removed from the Plebe experience themselves.
