'6 8 '8. 9. U. S. NAVAL TRAINING CEN'TER t San Diego, California Va; ' f - mc'A OUNTLESS GENERATIONS 0f 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 salvation. 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. In 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 ten weeks later. C939 w ' lx ' VA d V- - 'I'I-II: ANCHOR HISTORY 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 Nation7s entry into World War I, further development of this plan was postponed until 1919, when Congress authorized acceptance by the Navy 0f 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 142 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 tlater Rear Admirall David F. Sellers, U. 5. 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 192075 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 tilled land were added to the eastern boundaries of the station. By 1941 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, 1942, 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, 1944, 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- istrative Command. 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 1949 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. continued CAPTAIN ARTHUR T. EMERSON, JR., U.S.N. Commander, U. S. Vaval Training Center San Diego, Cal Ornia . , CONIMANDER JOHN NI. FERRAXTE, U.S.N. Executive Officer Recruit Training Command coanued 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 11 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 Txrairtin'g Center; for the purpose of conducting the primary phases of recruit training. In 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. In late 1964 a new school to train recruits in the vital function of firefighting was opened at Carroll Canyon, some 15 miles north east of San Diego. With the completion of this project the Naval Training Center filled out to its present boundaries of 535 acres. In late 1965, the demand for trained Navy men to man the addi- tional ships and overseas billets, required to meet the Vietnam crisis, brought the on-board population to a record of over 18,000 recruits, the highest since Korea. At the same time7 a military construction program got underway with the foundation of a new 8,000-man mess hall being laid adjacent to Bainbridge Court. In addition, an ambi- tious five-year program was formalized for the construction of modern barracks, TV classrooms and administration facilities. The face lifting of the Recruit Training Command is expected to be completed by the early 1970s. In the furtherance of its mission of supplying trained naval personnel to the fleets and ships of the United States Navy, each of the three subordinate commands of the Naval Training Center has important roles to fill. The Administrative Command has the responsibility of conducting most of the Centers 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 Centeris buildings and grounds, and through its facilities all personnel on the Center are housed, fed, clothed and paid7 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 fire protection. Under the Service School Command are grouped more than twenty Navy Schools in which recruits as well as men from the fleet receive training in the specialized duties of certain ratings. Most of these are Class 9A19 schools, where non-rated men learn the skills and information necessary to them to perform a specific petty oHicer 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 service; and receives instruc- tion in naval skill 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 hall, classrooms, athletic fields and recreation buildings used by the recruits. Now in its forty seventh year of service to the Navy, the Naval Training Center, San Diego, faces with confidence the chal- lenges of an unsettled world, SAN DIEGO Colors Passing in Review Soluting Battery WE Officers Center The Brigade Hmm-W h-I'W'Muuv h La h ii .5 :a'waw mvmvway? ,. 1"!" . . , v A 4 ' y ' , I .x mm, Ehifmhtv ' GRADUATION Reviewing Officers Recruwt Trammg Commander presents Mlhtary Recrmt Trammg Commander presents perpetual Effwcwency Award Flag Mmtary EfwaIency Trophy State Flags GRADUATION Each Fridalx afternoon on Prehle Field all graduating companies participate in their final Recruit Brigade Ree View Hertz entireh under the cnmmund at their recruit petty otit'ieerse the graduating companies go through the now familiar parade procedures and pass in review for the last time. .Xt this Rexiew the Commanding Officer presents the Brigade.

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 liwelcomed aboard77 by an olhcer repre- sentative of the Commanding OHicer and are placed under the Charge of an experienced senior petty omcer who will be their company commander throughout their period of recruit training, Each company commander is a carefully selected, thoroughly experienced career Navy petty ofhcer of demon- strated leadership ability who has received special training in working with recruits. IN PROCESSING 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 be his iishipmatesi7 for the next nine weeks, he may form friendships which will be lifelong. One of the most important steps in the ilin processingii stage is the administration of the Navyis 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 ilgo on schedule?

In the classrooms the recruit receives basic information on the rules and regulations by which he will be governed; the history, traditions and customs of the service of which he has become a part; 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 Navyls 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 oHicer 0r 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. ORDNANCE and GUN N ERY TO BE AN EFFECTIVE fighting unit, a warship must be capable of inliicting maximum damage upon the enemy; 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 llThe 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 rifie range coaches, the recruit learns how to load and sight a rifle, how to adjust the sling, and how to fire the weapon from the several positions, Later he will spend a day on the outdoor ritie range firing the Garand M-l rifle itfor record? 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. Thfoughout, the safe use of weapons is stressed in instruc- tion and rigidly enforced on the firing line. In 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.

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 shipis 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. SEAMANSHIP 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 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.

PHYSICAL TRAINING 0 BE 0F 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 a particularly sailors whgse life will be the seae 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. Tug H0" W0 Volleyball Rope Climb Basketball Wm. .w ABANDON SHIP DRILL 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 Ship,s Work Training. In any unit, men in the lower rates will usually perform the llchoresil and those in the higher rates will supervise them; all must stand watches; and all must live together in the same ship. The fourth week of recruit training is devoted to instruction and practical experience in Shipls 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 0r sentry watch and every cleaning detail is a part of the recruits training in the problems of community living. In the Recruit Training Command it is believed that the things a recruit must learn in Shipls Work Training can best be taught by actually doing them, for experience is the greatest teacher of all.

Life and living conditions in the Navy difTer so greatly from anything the young man has known in Civilian life that teaching him to live ip 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 recruits iihomef, It is in his barracks that he spends an appreciable portion of his time in training. Here he establishes himself ein a sense, drops his anchorefor 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 sleep; BARRACKS LIFE it is his most important classroom. Here he iilearns 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 purpose; 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.

Instead. he is given every oppor- tunity and encouragement to maintain and strengthen his religious interests. Soon after his arrival. the recruit is given an opportunity to talk to a chaplain of his own faith, who will acquaint him with the chaplainis role in the command and will explain the religious programs which will be available to him during recruit training. Regular divine services are conducted by chaplains of all faiths. thus giving each man an opportunity to worship in accordance with his religious background. Voluntary Clasees of religious instruction are held regularly for the benefit of recruits who desire to prepare themselves for church mem- bership. The Chaplains cooperate closely with the local churches to facilitate membership or attendance at services in those churches. Character guidance talks given by the chaplains are an integral part of recruit training. These are designed to foster the growth of moral responsibility. spiritual values and strong self-discipline within the recruit. Recruits are encouraged to participate in the religious life of the station by joining the choir or providing musical accompaniment at divine services. In time of distress or personal emergency. the chaplains stand ready to give advice and counsel. and the recruit is encouraged to take his personal problems to a chaplain of his choice at anv time. The chaplains also maintain close contact with the Navy Relief Society and The American Red Cross in obtaining financial and other assistance to those in need.

H d n a r b .m S A RECREATION ECREATION PLAYS AN important part in the recruits 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 hest and most worthwhile use Of these opportunities. During his first weeks of training the recruit has little or no time to spare from his daily routine for rer-rreation. 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 final week of training. The recreational facilities of the Training Center are many and varied. In the recreation huildings 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 weekends. The facilities of the Navy Exchange store. soda fountain and snack har afford him oppor tunities to purchase his needs conx'eniently and at reasonalle cost. 411 attended telephone exchange makes it easy for tho 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 RECREATI 0N tCOntimiedl may also use one of the swimming pools or play golf, tennis or handball.

I'm humbly grateful if my small effort sounded a note of cheer in one of your very busy days. Each gesture of kindness from a Service Man is treasured here and tucked away, "Among my souvenirs, " as your messages are now. May the Good Lord bless each one of you and give you courage to face difficulties and temptations tthat are sure to come. y And may you be given knowledge to make all the right choices.
