A rudder as defined by the Bluejacketis Manual is ita
structure at the stern of a vessel, used to control a vesselis
heading? Just as the rudder controls a shipis heading, the
Recruit Training Command, Orlando, determines the
direction in which sailors will go.
The responsibility of transforming civilians into sailors
is not taken lightly by the Recruit Training Command staff.
Likewise, the responsibility of putting forth the necessary
effort to become effective members of the worlds greatest
Navy is of prime concern to each recruit. The goal of recruit
training is to set the proper course and maintain a steady
heading. Thus this book, describing the process of recruit
training, is titled The Rudder.
Within these pages lie graphic reminders of many
activities-some pleasant, some not so pleasant, some
exciting, some routine, some humorous, and some gravely
serious. In future years, The Rudder should evoke many
memories of one of the most formative and meaningful
periods in a personis life, whether as a career Navy member
or a civilian reminiscing over the iihitch" in the naval service.
The weeks and months served in recruit training are not
easy, but of necessity are rigorous and demanding. The
training is diligently planned and administered in order to
develop in all trainees the strength of character, loyalty and
patriotism necessary to prepare them to defend their
country, its ideals and people, against any aggressor.

HISTORY OF THE TRAINING CENTER
Commissioned On July 1, 1968, the Naval Training
Center, Orlando, Florida, was established to enhance the
manpower training capabilities of the United States Navy.
Occupying the site of the former Orlando Air Force Base,
the training center rapidly became a show place among
training commands in the armed forces.
The Commander, Naval Training Center, is tasked
with Hproviding basic indoctrination for officer and
enlisted personnel, and primary, advanced specialized
training for officer and enlisted personnel in the Regular
Navy and Navy Reserve."
Subordinate commands of the Naval Training Center
are the Recruit Training Command, Service School
Command, Naval Administrative Command and Person-

Naval Training Equipment Center. Approximately 2,500
Navy men and women and 2,900 civilian employees have
permanent duty at the Naval Training Center. NTCis
non-permanent personnel include an average on board
count of 6,000 men and women recruits and 4,000 other
officer and enlisted students.

Orlando in 1972 and on April 1, 1974, the Recruit Training
Command iWomeni and Recruit Training Command were
consolidated and the Recruit training Command, Orlando,
thus became the only Navy command where both men
and women undergo basic training.
The recruit Training Command has the capability of
accommodating approximately 9,000 recruits at a time in
seven male and two female divisions and one division
for housing approximately 900 apprentice trainees.

modern training centers in the world. All buildings are of
modern construction and fully air-conditioned. Command
facilities include: A Naval Regional Medical Center Annex
and Recruit Clinic of the Naval Regional Dental Center;
a Training iclassroomi Building equipped with closed-
circuit televisions and the most modern training aids; two
dining facilities capable of feeding 9,200 people in 90
minutes; an indoor pistol range; olympic size poolifield
house igymnasiumi complex; and the second largest
Chapel in the Navy. These facilities are supported by:
an ln-Processing Facility where new recruits initiate their
recruit training; a community center complete with
exchange, post office, bank, barber and beauty shop,
and portrait studio; and the USS BLUEJACKET, a scale

Captain, U. S. Navy
THE NAVY OF YESTERYEAR
The Second Continental Congress established the Continental
Navy on October 13, 1775. During the Revolutionary War, the
newly-crested Navy never had more than 27 ships. The Navy relied
on the support of privateers who had been detending the harbors and
shores of the colonies since 1661. Successes by the small continental
Navy were numerous during the Revolution, yet the Navy was
disbanded and the last ship was sold in 1785.
In 1794, the U. S. Navy was once again established by Congress
to protect U. 5. shipping in the Mediterranean against Algerian
pirates. Two of the six trigstes constructed, the CONSTITUTION and
the CONSTELLATION, are still afloat today.
Famous names during the tirst 100 years 0! the Navy included:
John Paul Jones, Robert Morris, Lafayette, Stephen Decatur, Oliver
Hazard Perry, George Bancroft and David S. Farragut. During the first
100 years, naval hospitals were established by Congress, Antarctica
was discovered, the Navy suffered its first mutiny, the trans-Atlsntic
cable was laid, the Confederate Navy surrendered, petroleum oil was
tested tor use as a tuel source and the USS INTREPID, the first
warship to be equipped with torpedoes was commissioned.
The next 100 years of the Navy showed more emphasis on
technological development. The Navy1s tirst submarine was
constructed, the Navy Hospital Corps was established, and the Great
White Fleet made its around-the-world cruise in 1907. Commander
Robert Perry raised the U. S. flag at the North Pole and the Navy,s
tirst airplane was ordered in 1911. The Navy commissioned its tirst
aircraft carrier in 1922 and the Seabees were established in 1942.
From 1946 to the late 503, the Navy became electronic, nucleonic
and supersonic. On January 17, 1955, the first submarine using
nuclear power, the USS NAUTILUS, got underway. On July 7, 1948, the
first enlisted woman was sworn into the regular Navy. In 1959, tour
naval aviators were among seven men selected tor prospective
astronauts and John Glenn made the tirst manned orbit of the earth
in 1962 in the FRIENDSHIP 7. The Navy also played an important part
in the tracking of manned and unmanned space craft as well as being
responsible for recovery of manned space capsules.
The 1603 and 708 saw not only advancements in technology, but
also in personnel management and the weltare of Navy members.
Advances in the use 01 nuclear power for tuel continued as
exemplified by the newly-commissioned carriers NIMITZ and
EISENHOWER that can steam for 13 years without refueling.
TODAY,S NAVY - TOMORROWlS
The United States Navy today is an
instrument of sea power. Its basic mission is
Today, all potential targets in the world
are within reach of Polaris missiles launched
from fleet ballistic missile submarines.
Modern developments in anti-submarine
warfare have led for the first time to the
adoption of a strategic offensive concept, that
is, the detecting and confronting of enemy or
potential enemy submarines where they are,
rather than waiting for them to come to us.
Surveillance forces are supported by new
mobile weapons systems, including fixed-
wing aircraft, nuclear attack submarines, a
new generation of escort ships and aircraft,
new sensors in the form of sonars and new
Anti-Submarine Warfare systems of all types.
The Navy has been a leader in the
development of air-launched weapons. The
newest in the fleet is the Walleye, a bomb
guided by television, which can hit targets
with extreme accuracy and effectiveness.
Nuclear power has been adapted to the
surface fleet and has brought with it most of
the advantages proved in its application to
submarines: greater speed, longer endurance,
and more freedom from shore-based support.
Today major fleets with Fleet Marine
Forces embarked are deployed in both the
Atlantic and Pacific. Anti-submarine warfare
forces and nuclear attack submarines also
patrol important areas of the world sea.
In summary, the United States Navy today
is engaged in implementing our nations
interests through sea power. And sea power
means many things. It means security for the
ocean commerce that is the very life blood of
our free economy and security for our
homeland against attack on the sea or from
the sea. For the United States, sea power also
means the ability to control up to seventy
percent of the earthls surface when our
national interests require.
Speculations can be made as to future
advances in nuclear power, aviation, space
travel and weaponry. But it is a fact that the U.
8. Navy will continue to make giant strides in
technology, exploration and the welfare of its
The Navy will always employ new
weapons, new techniques and greater power
to protect and defend the United States on the
sea, under the sea and in the air. Now and in
the future, control of the sea gives the United
States her greatest advantage for the
maintenance of peace and for victory in war.
Mobility, surprise, dispersal and offensive
power are the keynotes to the new Navy. The
roots of the Navy lie in a strong belief in the
future, in continued dedication to the tasks,
and reflection on the Navy heritage. Never
have the opportunities and responsibilities for
the Navy been greater.
