NAVAL TRAINING CENJER - n Son Diego, California Q ii I Q OUNTLESS GENERATIONS of seafaring men , have come to regard the anchor as a symbol of 1 their profession and a mark of security to the ships on ,D which they serve. By the Romans the anchor was re- 1 garded as a symbol of wealth and commerce, while the . Greeks gave to it the significance of hope and steadiness, ' a meaning 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. Q EIIIEI ANG :l:-1201: TORY T HE NAVAL TRAINING CENTER, San Diego, had its inception in 1916 when Mr. William Kettner, Congressman from the Eleventh Congressional District of California and spokesman for the San Diego Chamber of Commerce, interested the Honorable Franklin D. Roosevelt, then Assistant Secretary ofthe Navy, in estab- lishing a naval training activity on the shores of San Diego Bay. Due to the Nationls 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 Cham- ber 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 Clater Rear AdmiralJDavid 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 popula- tion of the station and the maximum recruit strength was 1,500. The period of recruit training was then sixteen weeks.The shore line ofSan Diego Bay extended consider- ably further inland than at present, and the land now oc- cupied by Preble Field, the North Athletic Area and Camp Farragut was entirely under water. The recruit parade ground was located on the present site ofthe 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 ofCamp Paul Jones. Until Camp Lawrence was completed in 1936, re- cruits spent their first three weeks oftraining 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 add- ed to the eastern boundaries ofthe 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 ofthe station had reached it war- time 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 ofa group command and redesignated it the U. S. Naval Training Center, San Diego. Under the Center Commander were established three subordinate commands: The Recruit Training Com- mand,The Service School Command and the Administra- tive Command. The years immediately following World War II saw a considerable reduction in population ofthe Training Cen- ter 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 be- came apparent that the demand for trained personnel in continued the rapidly growing Pacific Fleet would require further expansion of this training center. Accordingly steps were taken by the Navy Department to reactivate Camp Elliott, formerly a World War ll 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 pri- mary 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 construction 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 con- struction work on the new camp was completed in 1955. RK In late 1965, the demand for trained Navy men to mar the additional ships and overseas billets, required to mee the Vietnam crisis, brought the on-board population to z record of over 18,000 recruits, the highest since Korea At the same time, a military construction program go underway with the foundation of a new 8,00-man mes hall being laid adjacent to Bainbridge Court. In addi tion, an ambitious five-year program was formalized fo the construction of modern barracks, TV classroom and administration facilities. The face lifting of the Re cruit Training Command was completed by the earlj 1970's. In the furtherance of its mission of supplying trainer naval personnel to the fleets and ships of the Unite' States Navy, each of the three subordinate command of the Naval Training Center has important roles to fill. The Administrative Command has the responsibilit of conducting most of the Center's administrative busi ness and furnishing a wide range of services necessary t the daily life of the large community which the Center 5 ua i li li A continued 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 Com- mand also provides such other community services as recreational and Navy Exchange facilities, communicaa tions, postal and transportation services: and police and fire protection. Under the Service School Command are grouped more than twenty Navy Schools in which recruits well as men from the fleet receive training in the specialized duties of certain ratings. Most of these are Class "A" schools, where non-rated men learn the skills and infor- mation necessary to them to perform a specific petty officer rating. Among these schools are those which train electricians mates, radiomen. Other schools teach specialized skills such as teletype maintenance and stenography. The present capacity of the Service Schools is about 5,000 men. Now in its Fifty Third year of service to the Navy, the Naval Training Center, San Diego, faces with confidence the challenges of an unsettled world. CAPTAIN H.R. BIVIN, U.S,N. Commander US.

Here the re- cruit undergoes his transition from civilian to military lifeg learns the history, traditions, customs and regulations of his chosen serviceg and receives instruction 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 bar- racks and headquarters of the recruit brigade, and nearby are located the mess hall, classrooms, athletic fields and recreation buildings used by the recruits. ig' '2',ff7M,, .Q 'Sq I .an ,I V ' "?i,'w:gQf" 1 " - -' ' 4 " 1 J ' V1 A9 5 1 1 -os' " ' 1 l Ji lY1L..'...i, 1 " - 1 , 'Vi , V ' '1 I Q 'X I 2 1 mwg -. qpmpf - K L --W" h ffl. 9+ 1 N-px. w I Q ' 1 ,Qt I , ' ww ' at . 4' . ww, ,F 'xg Y ,fi K f 1 P1 r ..

Here he is given thorough medi- cal 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 aboard" by an officer representative of the Commanding Officer 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 care- fully selected, thoroughly experienced career Navy petty of- ficer of demonstrated 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. From these men who will be his "shipmates" for the coming weeks, he may form life long friendships. One of the most important steps in the "in processing" Stage is the administration of the Navy's General Classifi- cation Test. 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 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 "go on schedule."

To the end that all navy men may meet these demandszof naval service, they participate in a physical training program that involves strenuous physical training and physicaltfexertion, instruction in swimming and sea sur- vival, and ingtiuction in first aid, lifesaving and personal hygiene. When theyyfeport for duty some recruits are soft, some are overweight, some are underweight. To build some up and trim othegs down, and to condition all for the rigors of life at sea, ajijgell-planned physical training program is inte- grated with phases of training: military drill, an active outdoor life,jtf9fgTbod food, good living habits. These physical training actiyiiijies emphasize correct posture and muscular coordinatioriffgnd strive to develop a respect for authority , QQKW X tr, and habits of instantaneous response to commands. All menfparticularly sailors whole 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-swim- mers 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 ofthe medical and dental services available, the prevention of infections, correct eating habits. and the care of feet, mouth. and teeth is pro- vided by competent medical instructors. The recruit also re- ceives 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.

ORDNANCE A D GUNNERY O BE AN EFFECTIVE fighting unit, a warship must be capable of inflicting 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 duties performed on board ship by f'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 rifle, how to adjust the sling, and how to fire the weapon from the several positions. Lat- er he will spend a day at the indoor rifle range firing "for recordf' Throughout, the safe use of weapons is stressed in instruction 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 is shown the various types of am- munition he will encounter and handle on board ship and learns the necessity for strictly observing the safety pre- cautions which are necessary for his own safety and that of his shipmates. , ,mm ,iixwfvg .

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 ofthe sea and the names and uses ofthe 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 -' 5' if' instruction in the use of the sound-powered telephones by which personnel stationed in various parts ofa ship may com- municate with each other. To facilitate practical demonstrations of these subjects the RECRU IT, a scale model of a destroyer escort, was construc- ted on shore for use by recruits. On board this landlocked ship practical exercises are held in stationing personnel for getting underway and anchoring, the handling of mooring lines. the manning ofwatch and battle stations. 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. if , u v 5 'X "'l.JUl 5 S ,E - .ra Q ' "e, Ari- ,WA- I, ,M g . , X451 Jx,Ll,..,,,, ' n ..

The marching, the facing, the manual of arms at first seem difficult beyond all reason, but after a weekls practice, confidence begins to ap- pear and by the end ofprimary training the company has be- come a sharp appearing unit. Even though the navy man seldom carries a rifle or marches in a military unit after he completes his recruit train- ing, 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 in- stantaneous response to command.

Together with physical training, military drill is a part of the physical conditioning or "hardening up" process for the recruit. But most of all, military drill teaches the re- cruit 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 ofteaching him the requirements of military life while comparing his performance and that of his unit with the performance of others in training with him.

Selected during their first day at Recruit Training Com- mand from among many volunteers, the future members of these units complete all phases of Basic Military and Aca- demic Training while perfecting their marching and musical talents. It is a tribute to the enthusiasm and ability of these young men and their instructors that they have gained a wide- spread reputation for the excellence of their musical and marching performance. The Drum and Bugle Corps, perhaps thebest known of these units, along with the Fifty-State Flag Team, provides entertainment at numerous sporting events, civic affairs and parades in and around the San Diego and Southern California area. The Corps and the Flag Team are quite proud of their record of having never achieved less than a second place award when performing in competition with other civilian and military units. Y?

Retaining their basic religious function, the Choir has branched out into many other musical areas. Appearances by the Choir at various civic functions. on television and at numerous military ceremonies provide not only entertain- ment but also excellent public relations for the Navy. While their outside committments are numerous, the pri- mary reason for the existence of these special units is to pro- vide entertainment and leadership for the weekly recruit brigade review. livery Friday afternoon prior to the review, The Drum and Bugle Corps. Bluejacket Choir and Fifty- State lflag Team perform in a most impressive and enter- taining display of their talents for parents and friends of graduating recruits. Once on the parade field, it is the fourth of our special units, the Brigade, Regimental and Battalion Staffs who take charge of the review. With the Naval Train- ing Center Band fthe only non-recruit unit on the fieldy. it is the responsibility of the Staffs to lead the review from the time the companies mass on the field through the Manual of Arms. Officers Center, and the final "Pass in Review". This truly impressive group of fine and talented young men,will shortly leave these special units to join the Navy's finest.

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, re- gardless of his rate or rating, each man is in some way con- cerned with these service duties to which the recruit is intro- duced during service week. In any unit. men in the lower rates will usually perform the "chores" and those in the higher rates will supervise themg 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 Ship's Work Training. For six 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 tasksfor 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 entire training period. Every messenger or sentry watch and every cleaning detail is a part of the recruit's training in the problems ofcommunity 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. -3. 1. +A. -.mn f....,W FOOD PREPARATIGN ,ff f 1 FOOD PREPARATION f 'S CHCW LI E '-sq rr.-nu Fha F ll ' 'T"m smgnmm, 'ls ms qmliyu' Vik final, mf-1. .A 33 awww' NRM ' K. 4 ,..x ,xxx MMYWQ, '37 is nfhg ul! .nfl 55335 QL Nd ?

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 be- comes one ofthe major missions of recruit training. At the Training Center his barracks is the recruit's 'ghomef' It is in his barracks that he spends an appreciable portion of his time in training. Here he establishes himself fin a sense, drops his anchorffor the weeks in which he will be experiencing the transition from civilian to mili- tary life. The barracks is not only a place for the recruit to sleep: it is his most important classroom. Here he "learns 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 budget- ing his spare time. These things he learns in his barracks life at the Training Center. New f- H inc MailCall!

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 chaplain's role in the command and will explain the reli- gious 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 ac- cordance with his religious background.Voluntary classes of religious instruction are held regularly for the benefit of re- cruits who desire to prepare themselves for church member- ship. 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 inte- gral 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 accom- paniment at divine services. In time of distress or personal emergency, the chaplains stand ready to give advice and counsel, and the recruit is en- couraged 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. -f k Ng QW' I A-ff""""'R 1 an Church Services - Camp Nimitz. wh ,fi 'K f!

Through- out 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 spare from his daily routine for recreation. In order to bring him through the loneliness and sharp readjust- ment 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 inclina- tion forthe recreational opportunities which lie ahead of him. Liberty to visit San Diego is not granted until after the final week oftraining. The recreational facilities ofthe 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 facilities ofthe Navy Exchange store, soda fountain and snack bar afford him op- portunities to purchase his needs conveniently and at reason- able cost. An attended telephone exchange makes it easy for the recruit to call any place in the country in an emergency, orjust 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 re- cruit 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 Re- cruit Smokers. Commencing his final week of training, each recruit who has earned the privilege is granted liberty on two days after his graduation parade. 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 obliga- tion to the uniform he is wearing to conduct 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 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 amusement park at Mission Beach is a popular attraction. Balboa Park, with its excellent zoo and other scenic and recreational at- tractions, is always popular with the recruit and man-of- warsman alike. The shopping and amusement facilities of down-town 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 "Under 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 con- venient and attractive surroundings for visiting or for taking a picnic lunch fx. v Star oflndi T g E. i.
