S 0 OUNTLESS GENERATIONS 0f seafaring men Dh have come to regard the anchor as a symbol of ca their profession and a mark of security to the ships on .h which they serve. By the Romans the anchor was regarded hh as a symbol of wealth and commerce, while the Greeks .h gave to it the significance of hope and steadiness, a mean- i ing that persists in religion and heraldry today. The '2 symbolism of the Greeks was carried on by the early h Christians with a meaning of steadfastness, hope and I'R salvation. Here, too, in recruit training, the anchor has special significance, not only as the symbol of the recruifs new life and surroundings but also as the steadfast symbol of the security in his new career that his recruit training will give him. .... .5 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. 9 I : i: w; . .. m .K.

BIVIN, USN Commanding Officer Recruit Training Command COMMANDER LORREN G. HARPER, U.S.N. Executive Officer Recruit Training Command 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 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 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 Hater 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 1920s 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 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. 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 'Draining centeri 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 fire-fxghting 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 time, 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 modem barracks, TV classrooms and administration facilities. The face lifting of the Recruit Training Command is expected to be completed by the early 197015. 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 fill. The Administrative Command has the responsibility of conducting most of the Centeris 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 Centefs 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 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 iiAii schools, where non-rated men learn the skills and information necessary to them to perform a specific petty ofiicer rating. Among these schools are those which train iire 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 Fiftieth year of service to the Navy, the Naval Train- ing Center, San Diego, faces with confidence the challenges of an unsettled world.

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 aboard" by an oHicer repre- sentative of the Commanding Oflicer 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.

One of the most important steps in the tin processing" stage is the administration of the Navyls 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.

The Navyls rating structure and its system of career advancement are explained to him. He is tuaght how to recognize 1the various naval ranks and ratings and the op- portunities he will have in attaining petty officer or com- missioned officer status. As the recruit progresses in training and becomes more familiar with naval history, the names of Paul Jones, Preble, l Dacatur, 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-wairsmain of the United States Navy. f a 593;- K KN vi. 5; Q"; 1 FL ll i'l J- H'"; 1 l3-! ,s n. 1 y "i H"; V VT 2'? f-TTLEH TO BE AN EFFECTIVE fighting unit, a warship must be capable of inflicting 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 ttThe 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 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 rifle range firing the Garand M-l rifle tifor record." He will also be instructed in the use of the service pistol and carbine and will witness firings of the Browning automatic riHe and the Thompson sub-machine gun. Thr'oughout, 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 shipls 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. nmnhlw N. 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.

Practical Facfors Class HE PAGES OF HISTORY of World War II are filled with instances where brave men, given the proper equinment and the necessary ltknow how? 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 days of recruit training is the one spent at the Fire Fighting Center. Here thr- recruit learns the chemistry of fire, basic principles of DAMAGE CONTROL combating fire, 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 fires. The recruit also receives practical instruction in the use of the gas mask, oxygen breathing apparatus and other equipment designed for his personal protection. In the tear gas Chamber he has the opportunity to test the elleetiveness of his gas mask. Basic instruction is also given to each recruit in the probable eHects of an atomic explosion and the measures he should take to insure his personal safety and survival.

The marching, the facing, the manual of arms at first seem difficult beyond all reason, but after a weeks 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 unitvafter he completes his recruit training, there is a definite 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 uesprit de corps,, grows within the company. Together with physical training, military drill is a part of the physical conditioning or lihardening upl5 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 bridge. Inspections will always be an important matter in the life of a man in the Navy. In recruit training the vigorous com- petition maintained between the recruit companies is based largely on a series of regular inspections which serve the double 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.

TO BE OF MAXIMUM effective use to himself and to the Navy 8 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 e 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. :r . fur :w p .nAJ. g.

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 lichoresl, 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 Ship,s 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 recruifs training in the problems of community living. In the Recruit Training Command it is believed that the things a recruit must learn in Shipis Work Training can best be taught by actually doing them, for experience is the greatest teacher of all.

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.

God, we pray to thee For those m peril 0n the sea IN MAKING THE CHANGE from civilian to military life, the recruit does not leave behind the religious beliefs ,, which he learned at home. 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 chaplainls 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 classes 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 any 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.

J Loo elm 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 best and most worthwhile use of these opportunities. During his first weeks of training the recruit has little or no time to spam 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 final week 01: training. The recreational facilities of the Training Center are many 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. The facili- ties of the Navy Exchange store, soda fountain and snack bar afford him opportunities to purchase his needs com veniently 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 programi lnter-company softball, baseball and volleyball games af- ford a diversion from the daily routine, and spectator in- terest in varsity athletics is often keen. During his off hours the recruit may also use one of the swimming pools or play :5ka KW lND A '8 Ix N muuu Nh5 A W; ,; "t?- w, golf, tennis or handball. Recruit boxing and wrestling bouts and impromptu entertainment acts afford interest at perie Odie Recruit Smokers. Commencing his final 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 "on his own" to select his own form of recreation, but by group indoctrination he is reminded that he has an obligation to the uniform he is wearing to con- duct himself 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 attrac- tions for its visitors. Fine beaches are at hand for those who wish to relax on the sand or swim in the surf, and the amusement park at Mission Beach is a popular attraction. Balboa Park, with its excellent zoo and other scenic and recreational attractions, is always popular Twith the recruit and man-of-warsman alike. The shopping and amusement facilities of downatown San Diego also attract many Navy men on liberty. The USO and Armed Services YMCA, together with local Churches and community organizations all do their part to help the serviceman enjoy his liberty in San Diego. The home hospitality programs the uUnder 21" dances and the Java Club offer pleasant memories of recruit liberties while in San Diego. For families and relatives who may have occasion to come to the Training Center, the Reception Center affords convenient and attractive surroundings for visiting or for taking a picnic lunch.
