U. S. NAVAL TRAINING CE ER
San Diego, California
OUNTLESS GENERATIONS of seafaring men
have come to regard the anchor as a symbol of
their profession and a mark of security to the ships on
which they serve. By the Romans the anchor was regarded
as a symbol of wealth and commerce, while the Greeks
gave to it the significance of hope and steadiness, a mean-
ing that persists in religion and heraldry today. The
symbolism of the Greeks was carried on by the early
Christians with a meaning of steadfastness, hope and .lm
Here, too, in recruit training, the anchor has special
significance, not only as the symbol of the recruit's new
life and surroundings but also as the steadfast symbol of
the security in his new career that his recruit training
will give him.
ln the pages that follow, the daily life of a recruit
is traced from his initial arrival at the Naval Training
Center until his graduation some nine weeks later.

HE NAVAL TRAINING CENTER, San Diego, had
its inception in 1916 when Mr. William Kettner, Con-
gressman from the Eleventh Congressional District of
California and spokesman for the San Diego Chamber
of Commerce, interested the Honorable Franklin D. Roose-
velt, then Assistant Secretary of the Navy, in establishing
a naval training activity on the shores of San Diego Bay.
Due to the Nationis entry into World War I, further
development of this plan was postponed until 1919, when
Congress authorized acceptance by the Navy of the present
site of the Training Center. The original grant consisted of
135 acres of highland donated by the San Diego Chamber
of Commerce and 14-2 acres of tideland given by the City
of San Diego. Construction work began in 1921, and on
1 June 1923 the U. S. Naval Training Station, San Diego,
was placed in commission under the command of Captain
flater Rear Admirall David F. Sellers, U. S. Navy.
At the time of its commissioning in 1923 the station
bore little resemblance to its present size or arrangement.
At that time Camp Paul Jones housed the entire population
of the station and the maximum recruit strength was 1,500.
The period of recruit training was then sixteen weeks.
The shore line of San Diego Bay extended considerably
further inland than at present, and the land now occupied
by Preble Field, the North Athletic Area and Camp Far-
ragut was entirely under water. The recruit parade ground
was located on the present site of the Public Works garage.
During the 1920's the Recruit Receiving and Outgoing
Units were housed in the Detention Unit, known as Camp
Ingram, which consisted of a group of walled tents adjacent
to the south boundary of Camp Paul Jones. Until Camp
Lawrence was completed in 1936, recruits spent their first
three weeks of training under canvas in this Detention Unit.
In 1939 a construction program was commenced which
within three years was to increase the capacity of the
station four-fold. This expansion went hand in glove with
a large scale program of harbor improvements by means
of which the channel and anchorages in San Diego Bay
were deepened and 130 acres of filled land were added
to the eastern boundaries of the station. By 194-1 Camp
Luce had been completed, and the construction of Camps
Mahan, Decatur, and Farragut was already well under
way when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. Virtually
all this construction work was completed by September,
19412, when the capacity of the station had reached its
wartime peak of 33,000 men, 25,000 of whom were recruits.
The period of recruit training during World War II varied
between three weeks and seven weeks.
In April, 19441, the Secretary of the Navy changed the
status of the Training Station to that of a group command
and redesignated it the U. S, Naval Training Center,
San Diego. Under the Center Commander were estab-
lished three subordinate commands: The Recruit Training
Command, The Service School Command and the Admin-
The years immediately following World War II saw a
considerable reduction in population of the Training
Center despite a post-war expansion of the Service Schools,
and by the end of 194-9 the population of the Center had
dropped to a twenty-year low of 5,800 men. Six months
later, when the Communists invaded the Republic of Korea,
an immediate expansion of all Naval training activities
took place and by September of 1950 the Center was
again operating at nearly full capacity.

During the early months of the Korean conflict it became apparent
that the demand for trained personnel in the rapidly growing Pacific
Fleet would require further expansion of this training center. Accord-
ingly steps were taken by the Navy Department to reactivate Camp
Elliott, formerly a World War II Marine Corps training camp which
is located ten miles north of San Diego on Kearny Mesa. On
15 January 1951 Camp Elliott was placed in commission as Elliott
Annex of the Naval Training Center for the purpose of conducting
the primary phases of recruit training. ln March, 1953, in line with
the planned reduction in size of the Navy, training at Elliott Annex
was discontinued and it was placed in an inactive status. During its
two years of operation, over 150,000 recruits received training there.
Late in 1952 projects were approved to convert some recruit
barracks into classrooms and to extend training facilities by con-
struction of a permanent recruit camp on the undeveloped Training
Center land lying to the south and east of the estuary. The six
converted barracks went into service as recruit classrooms in April,
1953, and construction work on the new camp was completed in
1955. With the completion of this project the Naval Training Center
filled out to its present boundaries of 435 acres.
In the furtherance of its mission of supplying trained naval
personnel to the Heets and ships of the United States Navy, each of
the three subordinate commands of the Naval Training Center has
important roles to lill.
The Administrative Command has the responsibility of conducting
most of the Center's administrative business and furnishing a wide
range of services necessary to the daily life of the large community
which the Center has become. The Administrative Command has
the responsibility of maintaining the Center's buildings and grounds,

and through its facilities all personnel on the Center are housed,
fed, clothed and paid, and receive their medical and dental care.
The Administrative Command also provides such other community
services as recreational and Navy Exchange facilities, com-
munications, postal and transportation services, and police and
Under the Service School Command are grouped more than
twenty Navy Schools in which recruits as well as men from the Heet
receive training in the specialized duties of certain ratings. Most
of these are Class KAW schools, where non-rated men learn the skills
and information necessary to them to perform a specific petty
officer rating. Among these schools are those which train fire con-
trol technicians, electricians mates, radiomen, yeomen, commissary-
men and stewards. Other schools teach specialized skills such as
motion picture operation, teletype maintenance and stenography.
The present capacity of the Service Schools is about 5,000 men.
The largest of the three commands at the Training Center is the
Recruit Training Command. Here the recruit undergoes his transi-
tion from civilian to military life, learns the history, traditions,
customs and regulations of his chosen serviceg and receives instruc-
tion in naval skills and subjects which will be basic information
throughout his period of naval service.
Most of the facilities of the Recruit Training Command are
centered on Bainbridge Court and occupy the western half of the
Training Center. Here are concentrated the barracks and head-
quarters of the recruit brigade, and nearby are located the mess
halls, classrooms, athletic fields and recreation buildings used by
Now in its thirty-ninth year of service to the Navy, the Naval
Training Center, San Diego, faces with confidence the challenges of
an unsettled world.

T THE RECEIVING and Outfitting Unit, better known
as "R and Of' the recruit receives his first introduction
to recruit training. Here he is given thorough medical and
dental examinations, takes various mental tests and is issued
his outfit of Navy uniforms and clothing.
Soon after his arrival he and some seventy other young
men are assigned to their recruit company. As a newly formed
company they are "welcomed aboardn by an ofiicer repre-
sentative of the Commanding Ofiicer and are placed under
the charge of' an experienced senior petty officer who will be
their company commander throughout their period of recruit
training. Each company commander is a carefully selected,
thoroughly experienced career Navy petty officer of demon-
strated leadership ability who has received special training in
working with recruits.
In his new company the recruit will meet young men from
all walks of life and sections of the country, Among these
men who will he his "shipmates,' for the next nine weeks, he
may form friendships which will be lifelong.
One of the most important steps in the "in processing" stage
is the administration of the Navy's General Classification Test
battery. The results of these tests together with a later meeting
with a trained classification interviewer will lead to the selection
of a career pattern in the Navy, and in some cases, to special
schooling after his graduation from recruit training.
Having donned his new Navy uniform and shipped his
civilian clothes home, the new recruit is now ready to move
to the Primary Training Regiment where his company will

AVING LEFT CIVILIAN LIFE behind him, the recruit
at once finds himself in unfamiliar surroundings where
he is governed by a new code of regulations, where words
and phrases have acquired new meanings, and where new
obligations and responsibilities have been placed upon him.
In the classrooms the recruit receives basic information on
the rules and regulations by which he will be governedg the
history, traditions and customs of the service of which he has
become a partg and the privileges and obligations which he
has assumed as a member of the naval service.
Here, too, he gains a better understanding of the government
of his nation and the role he plays in it. Through lecture and
discussion he becomes more aware of his responsibilities as a
citizen and the responsibilities that his country has assumed
in the world of today.
The Navy's rating structure and its system of career advance-
ment are explained to him. He is taught how to recognize the
various naval ranks and ratings and the opportunities he will
have in attaining petty oflicer or commissioned officer status.
As the recruit progresses in training and becomes more
familiar with naval history, the names of Paul Jones, Preble,
Decatur, Farragut, Nimitz, Halsey and other naval heroes in
whose honor the camps, buildings and streets of the Training
Center are named take on new meanings. By learning of the
deeds of these heroes of our earlier naval history, there comes
a realization and acceptance of the proud heritage carried
forward by the man-of-warsman of the United States Navy.

T0 BE AN EFFECTIVE fighting unit, a warship must be
capable of infiicting maximum damage upon the enemyg
to survive, it must be able to defend itself against hostile attack.
In Ordnance Training, the recruit learns some of the the duties
performed on board ship by "The Man Behind the Gun."
Ordnance and Gunnery training begins with instruction in
the use of small arms. At the snapping-in range, under the
guidance of experienced rifle range coaches, the recruit
learns how to load and sight a rilie, how to adjust the sling,
and how to fire the weapon from the several positions, Later he
will spend a day on the outdoor rifle range firing the Garand
M-1 rifle "for recordf' He will also be instructed in the use
of the service pistol and carbine and will witness firings of

the Browning automatic rifie and the Thompson sub-machine
gun. Throughout, the safe use of weapons is stressed in instruc-
tion and rigidly enforced on the firing line.
ln advanced training the recruit receives an introduction
to the larger weapons he will see on board ship and learns
some of the principles of their operation. Although he will not
witness the actual firing of these shipboard weapons until he
goes to sea, he receives practical experience in sighting and
loading a five-inch gun, using dummy ammunition. He is
shown the various types of ammunition he will encounter and
handle on board ship and learns the necessity for strictly
observing the safety precautions which are necessary for his
own safety and that of his shipmates.

- O MEN WHO WILL "go down to the sea in shipsv a
knowledge of basic seamanship is fundamental. Although
some seamanship skills can be mastered only from long expe-
rience at sea, the foundations upon which these skills are
based form an important part of recruit training. Emphasis
here is placed upon teaching the recruit the language of the
sea and' the names and uses of the tools of his new trade.
Among the subjects taught to the recruit are marlinspike
seamanship and knot tying, steering and sounding, anchoring
and mooring, and the recognition of various types of ships,
their characteristics and structures. He learns the principles of
shipboard organization and something of the role he will later
play as a member of his ship's company. He receives practical
instruction in the use of the sound-powered telephones by
which personnel stationed in various parts of a ship may
communicate with each other.
To facilitate practical demonstrations of these subjects the
RECRUIT, a scale model of a destroyer escort, was constructed
on shore for use by recruits. On board this landlocked ship
practical exercises are'held in stationing personnel for getting
underway and in anchoring, the handling of mooring lines,
the manning of watch and battle stations.
Small boat drills are conducted the year around. Each recruit
receives practical experience in pulling an oar in a whaleboat
and learns how these boats are lowered, hoisted and secured
on board ship, Inter-company boat racing is an important part
of the Recruit Brigade competition, and competition among
the leading boat crews during each race is keen.
By the time he completes recruit training the recruit will
have learned many of the fundamentals of seamanship which
will stand him in good stead on board ship.

HE PAGES OI" HISTORY of World War II are filled with
instances where brave men, given the proper equipment and
the necessary Hknow howf' were able to save their ships
from apparently certain loss following severe battle damage.
Fires were extinguished, flooded compartments plugged and
dewatered. and the wounded cared for, to the end that the
ship survived and returned to fight other battles.
Damage Control instruction for the recruit is designed to
teach him the fundamental principles of fire fighting and a
working knowledge of the equipment which may save his ship
and his own life.
Probably one of the longest remembered Clays of recruit
training is the one spent at the Fire Fighting Center. Here
the recruit learns the chemistry of fire. basic principles of
DAMAGE C0 TROL
combating tire, and then spends nearly an entire day extin-
guishing actual fires. Under watchful supervision of trained
firefighters he will put out serious fires under simulated ship-
board conditions. After receiving this valuable practical experi-
ence he will have lost most of his fear of fire and will have
gained confidence in his ability to combat serious tires.
The recruit also receives practical instruction in the use of
the gas mask, oxygen breathing apparatus and other equipment
designed for his personal protection. ln the tear gas chamber
he has the opportunity to test the eilectiveness of his gas mask.
Basic instruction is also given to each recruit in the probable
effects of an atomic explosion and the measures he should take
to insure his personal safety and survival.

HE MILITARY DRILL, watch standing and inspections
that are all a part of the recruitis military training are
generally new experiences to him. The marching. the facing,
the manual of arms at first seem dillicult beyond all reason,
but after a wcek's practice, confidence begins to appear and
by the end of primary training the company has become a
sharp appearing unit.
Even though the navy man seldom carries a rifle or marches
in a military unitrafter he completes his recruit training, there
is a dehnite and important place in recruit training for military
drill. with and without arms, The military control of the
company is gained and maintained through constant drilling.
Leaders are discovered and developed. and others learn
instantaneous response to command. All develop coordination
of mind and body. and an 'gesprit de corpsw grows within the
company. Together with physical training, military drill is a
part of the physical conditioning or Hhardening up" process
for the recruit. But most of all. military drill teaches the
recruit the importance of implicit obedience to orders and the
importance of the individual in a military group. whether he
be in a marching unit, on a gun crew, in the fire room. or
on the hridge.
Inspections will always be an important matter in the life
of a man in the Navy. ln recruit training the vigorous com-
petition maintained hetween the recruit companies is based
largely on a series of regular inspections which serve the
douhle purpose of teaching him the requirements of military
life while comparing his performance and that of his unit with
the performance of others in training with him.

Presenting the Infantry Flag
The infantry training pen-
nant is awarded to that primary
company who on its 3rd week
and Sth day of training has
achieved an infantry mark of
3.90 or better. The purpose of
this pennant is to promote a
competitive spirit and pride in
a job well done.
O BE OF MAXIMUM effective use to himself and to the
Navy a man must be in top physical condition, must know
how to care for his body and must be able to survive in the
water at sea. To the end that all navy men may meet these
demands of naval service, they participate in a physical training
program that involves strenuous physical exertion, instruction
in swimming and sea survival, and instruction in first aid,
lifesaving and personal hygiene.
When they report for duty some recruits are soft, some are
overweight, and some are underweight. To build some up and
trim others down, and to condition all for the rigors of life at
sea, a well-planned physical training program is integrated with
other phases of training: military drill, an active outdoor life,
good food. good living habits. These physical training activities
emphasize correct posture and muscular coordination and strive
to develop a respect for authority and habits of instantaneous
response to commands.
All men --particularly sailors whose life will be the sea-
must know how to swim, how to use life jackets and, if no
jacket is available, how to use clothing as a flotation device.
Many hours are spent in the swimming pools, Non-swimmers
are taught to swim, qualified swimmers improve their ability,
and all recruits learn sea survival and water safety.
Stressed constantly in the Physical Training Program is
personal cleanliness and the importance of health to the indi-
vidual and to the Navy. A knowledge of the medical and dental
services available, the prevention of infections, correct eating
habits, and the care of feet, mouth, and teeth is provided by
competent medical instructors. The recruit also receives first
aid instruction so that he will know how to care for himself or
for his injured shipmates under circumstances where immediate
medical attention is not available.

SHIPS WORK TRAINING
AFLOAT OR ASHORE, each naval unit is generally a self-
sustaining unit. The messing of the crew, all the house-
keeping chores, and the watch standing must be performed
by those assigned to the unit. Throughout his naval career,
regardless of his rate or rating, each man is in some way
concerned with these service duties to which the recruit is
introduced in his Shipis Work Training. In any unit, men in
the lower rates will usually perform the Hchoresn and those
in the higher rates will supervise them, all must stand watchesg
and all must live together in the same ship.
The fourth week of recruit training is devoted to instruction
and practical experience in Shipis Work Training. For eight
weeks of his training period the recruit is waited upon in the
mess halls by other recruits and for one week he takes his
turn in performing these important tasks for his shipmates
in recruit training.
Although the fourth week is specifically designated for
training in these service duties, much of his training continues
throughout the nine-week training perod. Every messenger
or sentry watch and every cleaning detail is a part of the
recruit's training in the problems of community living.
In the Recruit Training Command it is believed that the
things a recruit must learn in Ship's Work Training can best
be taught by actually doing them, for experience is the greatest
teacher of all.

ROBABLY THE MOST IMPORTANT thing that a recruit
must learn during his recruit training is how to live with
others in a military organization. Life and living conditions
in the Navy differ so greatly from anything the young man has
known in civilian life that teaching him to live in close quarters
as a member of a military group becomes one of the major
missions of recruit training.
At the Training Center his barracks is the recruit's "home.,'
It is in his barracks that he spends an appreciable portion of
his time in training. Here he establishes himself - in a sense,
drops his anchor-for the nine weeks in which he will be
experiencing the transition from civilian to military life.
The barracks is not only a place for the recruit to sleepg

it is his most important classroom. Here he 'ilearns by doing."
He learns to live with others and to take care of himself
and his belongings. The scrubbing of his clothing, the cleaning
of his barracks, and the constant inspections all serve but
one purposeg to prepare him for a successful life during the
remainder of his tour in the Navy.
And it is not all work, for the recruit must also learn the
need of a Navy man for the companionship of his fellows, for
mail from home, and for amusement and relaxation. He should
also develop the habits of writing letters and budgeting his
spare time. These things he learns in his barracks life at
the Training Center.

ECREATION PLAYS AN important part in the recruitis
training at the Naval Training Center. Throughout his
life in the Navy, many and varied recreation facilities and
opportunities will be available to him, but he himself must
learn how to make the best and most worthwhile use of
During his first weeks of training the recruit has little
or no time to spare from his daily routine for recreation. In
order to bring him through the loneliness and sharp read-
justment to life in his new environment, a special effort is
made to keep each recruit fully occupied throughout each
day of primary training, and he therefore has little time or
inclination for the recreational opportunities which lie ahead
of him. Liberty to visit San Diego is not granted until after
the sixth week of training.
The recreational facilities of the Training Center are many
,Juan-as M .,kk M "'l't"M"'-as f-0-....-.,.,.

and varied. In the recreation buildings in the recruit areas
there are excellent libraries, game rooms, television lounges,
billiard rooms and bowling alleys. Movies are available on
certain evenings and on week-ends. Nearby is a well-equipped
hobby shop where the recruit may turn his hand to almost
any hobby craft of his choice. The facilities of the Navy
Exchange store, soda fountain and snack bar afford him oppor-
tunities to purchase his needs conveniently and at reasonable
cost. An attended telephone exchange makes it easy for the
recruit to call any place in the country in an emergency, or
just to hear familiar voices from home.
Athletics also play a part in the recreation program. Inter-
company softball, baseball and volleyball games afford a
diversion from the daily routine, and spectator interest in
varsity athletics is often keen. During his off hours the recruit
San Diego Zoo
may also use one of the swimming pools or play golf, tennis
or handball. Recruit boxing and wrestling bouts and impromptu
entertainment acts afford interest at periodic Recruit Smokers.
Commencing his seventh week of training, each recruit who
has earned the privilege is granted a twelve-hour pass, either
on Saturday or Sunday afternoon. During his liberty hours
the recruit is Mon his own', to select his own form of recrea-
tion, but by group indoctrination he is reminded that he has
an obligation to the uniform he is wearing to conduct him-
self in a manner which will bring credit to himself, his
organization and his Navy.
The San Diego recruit is particularly fortunate in being
stationed in a city which has so many worthwhile attractions
for its visitors. Fine beaches are at hand for those who wish
to relax on the sand or swim in the surf, and the amuse-
ment park at Mission Beach is a popular attraction. Balboa
Park, with its excellent zoo and other scenic and recreational
