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.

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.
