NAVAL TRAINING CENTER 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 re- 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 recruitls 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. ' $933331? - "MDV. '6'. ' ? d; 1 V THE ANCHOR HISTORY The 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. Roosevelt, then Assistant Secretary of the Navy, in establishing a naval training activity on the shores of San Diego Bay. Due to the Nations 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 IJune 1923 the U.S. Naval Training Station, San Diego, was placed in commission under the command of Captain tlater Rear AdmiraD David F. Sellers, US. Navy. At the time of its commissioning in 1923 the station bore little resemblance to its present size or arrange- ment. At that time Camp PaulJones 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 Farragut was entirely under water. The recruit parade ground was located on the present site of the Public Works garage. During the 192015 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 Det- ention 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 improve- ments 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 sta- tion. By 1941 Camp Luce had been completed, and the construction Camps Mahan, Decatur, and Farragut was already well under way when theJapanese at tacked 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 com- mand and redesignated it the US. Naval Training Cen- ter, San Diego. Under the Center Commander were established three subordinate commands: The Recruit Training Command, The Service School Command and the Naval Training Station. 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, and 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. Accordingly steps were taken by the Navy Department to reactive Camp Elliott, formerly a World War II Marine Corps training camp which is located ten miles north of San Diego on Kearny Mesa. On 15January 1951 Camp Elli- ott was placed in commission as Elliott Annex of the Naval Training 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 construction of a permanent recruit camp on the undeveloped Training Center land lying to the south and east of the estuary. The six converted bar- racks went into service as recruit classrooms in April, 1953, and construction work on the new camp was completed in 1955. In late 1965, the demand for trained Navy men to man the additional ships and overseas billets, required to meet the Vietnam crisis, brought the on-board popula- tion to a record of over 18,000 recruits, the highest since Korea. At the same time a military construction pro- gram got underway with the foundation ofa new 8,000- man mess hall being laid adjacent to Bainbridge Court. In addition, an ambitious five-year program was for- malized for the construction of modern barracks, TV classrooms and administration facilities. The face lift- ing of the Recruit Command was completed by the early 1970's. 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 Naval Training Station has the responsibility of conducting most of the Centers administrative busi- ness and furnishing a wide range of services necessary to the daily life of the large community which the Cen- ter has become. The Administrative Command has the responsibility of maintaining the Centers 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 Naval Train- ing Station also provides such other community servi- ces 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 spe- cialized duties of certain ratings. Most of these are Class 0A" 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 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. Today after six decades of service to the Navy the Naval Training Center San Diego still faces with confi- dence the challenges of an unsettled world. CAPTAIN P. M. REBER Commander.

Here the re- cruit undergoes his transition from civilian to military life; learns the history, traditions, customs and regula- tions of his chosen service; 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 Com- mand are centered on Bainbridge Court and occupy the western half of the Training Center. Here are concen- trated the barracks and headquarters of the recruit bri- gade, and nearby are located the mess hall, classrooms, athletic fields and recreation buildings used by the re- cru1ts.

IN PROCESSING A T THE RECEIVING and Outfitting Unit, better known as ttR and O," the recruit receives his first intro- duction to recruit training. 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 other young men are as- signed to their recruit company. As a newly formed com- pany they are itwelcomed aboardii by an officer representa- tive of the Commanding Officer and are placed under the charge of an experienced senior petty officers who will be their company commanders throughout their period of re- cruit training. Each company commander is a carefully selected, thoroughly experienced career Navy petty officer. of demonstrated leadership ability who has received special training in working with recruits.

PHYSICAL TRAINING T 0 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 training and physical exertion, instruction in swimming and sea sur- vival, 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, aswell-planned physical training program is inte- grated 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 meneparticularly sailors whole 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-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 of the 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.

In Ordnance Training, the recruit learns some of the duties performed on board ship by WFhe Man Behind the Gun? Ordnance and Gunnery training begins with instruction in the use of small arms. Under the guidance of experienced range coaches, the recruit learns how to load, sight and how to fire the weapon. Later he will fire the weapon at the indoor range. Throughout, the safe use of weapons is stressed in instruction 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 is shown the various types of ammunition he will encounter and handle on board ship and learns the necessity for strictly observing the safety precau- tions 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 com- municate with each other. To facilitate practical demonstrations of these subjects the RECRUIT, 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 of watch 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. .- , i; , 15:3.qu WW Morning Colors On The USS Recruit tTFFG-U USS RECRUIT TFFG-l SHIPBOARD ACTIVITIES TFFG-l Sound Power, Phone Instruction Helmsman Indoctrination G.Q.

Fires were extinguished, flooded compart- ments 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 the recruit learns the chemistry of fire, basic principles of 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 shipboard conditions. After receiving this valuable practi- cal experience 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 effectiveness of his gas mask. Basic instruction is also given to each recruit in the prob- able effects 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 unit after he completes his recruit training, there is a definite and important place in recruit training, for military drill. The military control of the com- pany is gained and maintained through constant drilling. Leaders are discovered and developed, and others learn instantaneous response to command. All develop coordina- tion of mind and body, and an llesprit de corps" grows within ..,,. Mm the company. Together with physical training, military drill is a part of the physical conditioning or ilhardening upii 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 compe- tition 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.

INTRODUCTION TO THE GAS MASK Ugh Let Me Out Face The Wind Clean Your Mask Like This PERSONNEL INSPECTION DRILL SHOW Comprised of young men currently undergoing regular recruit train- ing, Drill Team is made up of four special performing units: the Drum and Bugle Corps, F ifty-State Flag Team, Rifle Team and Division Staffs. Selected during their first day at Recruit Training Command from among many volunteers, the future members of these units complete all phases of Basic Military and Academic Training while perfecting their marching and musical talents. It is a tribute to the enthusiasm and ability of these young men and theirinstructors that they have gained a wide-spread reputation for the excellence of their musical and marching performance. The Drum and Bugle Corps, perhaps the best 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. While their outside committments are numerous, the primary reason for the existence of these special units is to provide entertainment and leadership for the weekly recruit brigade review. Every Friday after- noon prior to the review, The Drum and Bugle Corps, Rifle Team and Fifty-State F lag Team perform in a most impressive and entertaining 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 Division, and Training Units Staffs who take charge of the review. With the Naval Training Center Band tthe only non-recrut unit on the fieldl, it is the responsibility of the Staffs to lead the review from the time the companies mass on the field through Officer's Center, and the final ilPass in review". This truly impressive group of fine and talented young men, will shortly leave these special units to join the Navy's finest. v . 1 .. r - A FLOAT 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, 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 ilchores" and those in the higher rates will supervise them; all must stand watches; and all must live together in the same ship. The fifth 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 tasks for his shipmates in recruit training. Although the fifth week is specifically designated for train- ing 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 recruits 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 tought by actually doing them, for experience is the greatest teacher of all.

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 of the major missions of recruit training. At the Training Center his barracks is the recruits llhomefi 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 anchorafor the weeks in which he will be experiencing the transition from civilian to mili- tary life. MAIL CALL The barracks is not only a place for the recruit to sleep; it is his most important classroom. Here he lllearns 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. BARRACKS ROUTINE E mm L S K C A R R A B Knot Of The Day a ??iiiii LEISURE TIME What Did She Say? News From Home Ouch RELIGIOUS LIFE 1 N MAKING THE CHANGE from civilian to military life, the recruit does not leave behind the religious beliefs 0d, we pray to thee which he learned at home. Instead, he is given every oppor- . . tunity and encouragement to maintain and strengthen his or those m perzl 0n the sea 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 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. 4: m r e t n e C S .w uh .v U c A S u .w .01: d R v 4. 44 . WA Protestant Services , : JPWlSU '! rim! NV Jewish Service Individual Counseling RECREATION R ECREATION PLAYS AN important part in the re- cruit's training at the Naval Training Center. Through- out his life in the Navy, many and varied recreation facili- ties 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 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 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 facil- ities of the Navy Exchange store, soda fountain and snack bar afford him opportunities to purchase his needs con ve- niently and at reasonable cost. An attended telephone exchange makes it easy for the recruit to call any place in an emergency, orjust to hear familiar voices from home. Athletics also play a part in the recreation program. Intercompany 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 may also use one of the swimming pools or play golf, tennis or handball. 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 obligation 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 attrac- tions for its visitors. Fine beaches are at hand for those who wish to relax on the sand or swim in the surf. Balboa Park, with its excellent zoo and other scenic and recrea- tional attractions, 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. For families and relatives who may have occasion to come to the Training Center, the Reception Center affords convenient and attractive surroundings for visit- ing or for taking a picnic lunch.
