"I lay before Congress a letter with accompany- ing documents from Commodore Bainbridge, now commanding the United States frigate Constitution, reporting his capture and destruction of the British frigate Java. The circumstances of the issue of this combat afford another instance of the professional skill and heroic spirit which prevail in our naval service. The signal display of both by Commodore Bainbridge, his ofhcers and crew command the highest praise. This being the second instance in which the condition of the captured ship, by render- ing it impossible to get her into port, has barred a contemplated reward for successful valour, l rec- ommend to the consideration of Congress, the equity and propriety of a general provision allow- ing in such cases, both past and future, a fair pro- portion of the value which would accrue to the captors on the safe arrival and sale of the prizef, James Madison "Resolved by the Senate and House of Representa- tives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, that the President of the United States be, and he is hereby, requested to present to Cap- tain William Bainbridge, of the frigate Constitu- tion, a gold medal with suitable emblems and de- vices, and a silver medal with suitable emblems and devices to each commissioned officer of the said frigate, in testimony of the high sense entertained by Congress of the gallantry, good conduct and services of Captain William Bainbridge, his oflicers and crew, in the capture of the British frigate Java, after a successful combat."

Our Navy cannot achieve its mission as a member of the nation's defense team without the services of many thousands of young Americans who are willing to work hard and long to ensure that this country will be able to defend her precious freedom if the test comes. Whether your son decides to make the Navy his career, or prefers to return to civilian life upon completion of his present enlistment, he will need the encouragement and understanding of you at home in order to do his Navy job successfully. For our part, those of us in positions of leader- ship in the Navy pledge our constant loyalty to him and concern for his best interests. working together, we can keep our Navy the world's best and a great protector of freedom throughout the world.

TTV MISSILES ABOARD THE USS MISSISSIPPI THE BATTLESHIP USS MISSOURI II and as used in the United Nations' efforts in the Far East, is an indispens- able part of modern defense upon which the security of our country ultimately rests. On the sea, under the sea, in the air above the sea, and in land operations where naval forces including the Marine Corps are committed, the Navy stands ready to meet any aggressive challenge whenever and wherever offered. The modern fleet includes many task forces built around the present capital ship-of-the-line, the aircraft carrier, Fast carrier task forces composed of carriers, battleships, cruisers, destroyers and other combatant vessels, are the principal ele- ments of today's offensive naval strength and, as such, comprise the Navy's main striking force. The Navy is no longer shackled by the historic barriers of the shoreline, nor by the range of its ship- borne guns, but can strike blows deep in enemy territory, and can deliver at the target the atom bomb, when and if needed. Fast carrier task forces are able, without resorting to diplomatic channels, to establish offshore anywhere in the world airfields completely equipped with machine shops, ammunition dumps, tank farms, warehouses, together with quar- ters and all types of accommodations for operating personnel. Such task forces are virtually as complete as any air base ever established ashore. They constitute the only air bases which can be made avail- able at the enemy's frontier without as- sault and conquest. Whenever and wherever assault and conquest is deemed necessary, the ac- complishment of an amphibious assault until a stable beachhead has been estab- lished is solely the responsibility of the Navy. The amphibious task, forces are composed of all types of ships, naval air- craft, under-water demolition teams, reconnaissance facilities, and the special- ized troops-the Marine Corps. Before, during, and after an initial assault naval guns and rocket launchers, in close co- ordination with naval aircraft, are able to devastatingly bombard enemy troops and installations, and lend close strategi- cal and tactical support to our own ground forces in their advance to a de- sired objective. kwin , GUN CREW AT GENERAL QUARTERS ABOARD THE CRUISER USS ST. PAUL .t 'LLB AN UNDERWATER DEMOLITION TEAM BEACHING FOR ASSIGNMENT THE CRUISER USS ALBANY UNDERWAY LOADING AN LCT FROM A TRANSPORT SHIP MARINES IN LANDING CRAFT APPROACHING A MOTHER SHIP CONVOY IN THE CARIBBEAN SEA NAVY JETS TAXIING TO CATAPAULT OFFICERS AT BATTLE STATIONS ABOARD THE CONVAIR XFY-1, HPOGO THE SUBMARINE USS POMFRET STICK," READY FOR VERTICA ROLE OF THE NAVY Submarine and Anti-Submarine Warfare The Navy's submarine forces, with a history of outstanding performance in W'orld Y'Var II, are ready to assume again their vital task of offense or defense in any mission assigned. And, as a defensive measure, the Navy's "Hunter-Killer" task units, composed of escort carriers, blimps, and destroyers equipped with newly developed electronic devices, are training together as a team to track down and destroy any undersea craft of an aggressor DZIUOI1. logistical Supply In addition to its function of denying the use of the sea to an enemy, the Navy now has the responsibility of lifting car- go by sea for the supply of all the armed services abroad, This problem seems to become more enormous and complex with each war. The Far Eastern opera- tions are no exception as shown by the fact that the cargo discharged in that area has averaged more than sixty pounds per man per day. This is well above the World NVar II average of for- ty-four pounds per man per day in any theatre of operation. The tremendous and ever-increasing task of logistical sup- ply to overseas bases will always remain a naval responsibility. Superior Naval Strength Through all its varied components, the United States Navy exercises control FLIGHT TESTS of the seas and the coastal areas bound- ing them. All units of the fleet display unrivaled flexibility and mobility and, together, comprise a vast fighting poten- tial-inimical to the interests of aggres- sive-minded nations-and a powerful safeguard of freedom. In measuring our own capabilities against a potential enemy, due apprecia- tion must be taken of the factors of rel- ative strength and weakness. We may, for example, hnd ourselves comparative- ly weak in manpower. XVe know happily that we are superior in naval strength, which includes the strength of naval avi- ation. It is axiomatic that in preparing for any contest, it is wisest to exploit-not neglectvthe elements in which we have superior strength. X'Ve must lead from strength-not from weakness. lVe should "Accentuate The Positive." Thus it is that a policy which pro- vides for balanced development and co- ordinated use of strong naval forces must be fostered if we are, within the fore- seeable future, to meet the challenge of arms of the forces which seem to oppose us. Trained Naval Personnel The Navy's Hghting ships and aircraft represent the results of America's 1T1OSt advanced scientific research and devel- opment. They are precision products of American ingenuity and industry.

To meet this need, the Navy is con- stantly revising and improving its many and varied training programs and fa- cilities in order to keep pace with mod- ern educational and technical advance- ments, and thus provide the highly trained and qualified personnel required to maintain and operate "The greatest Navy the world has ever known." t-:li3:lf5 if? The recruit of today differs somewhat from his World IVar II counterpart. To- day most of the men in recruit training are under twenty years of age. These men are young and impressionableg many of them are entering the Navy with dehnite intent to make the Navy their career. It is of importance to the Navy that these men get the best possible start in their new venture. The transi- tion from civilian to military life must be smoothg indoctrination in the cus- toms, traditions, and regulations of the service must be thorough, basic Navy knowledges and skills must be devel- opedg pride in and love for the Navy must be carefully cultivated. Especially in time of peace must there be an in- crease in the emphasis placed on the mental, moral and social development of the individual. He must be led to a de- sire for self-improvement and advance- ment, a realization of his status in and importance to the Navy-a sense of be- longingg and understanding of his place in a democracy as a sailor and a citizen -a fuller appreciation of the American way of lifeg the adoption, for himself, of high standards of responsibility, military performance and conduct. The Navy's stake in this enterprise is tremendous. From these men will come the petty officers, the warrant officers, and some of the officers of the Navy of the future. That Navy can be no better than its men. The goals set forth above are stated in terms of ideals, hence can never be fully realized. But it is in recruit training that progress toward these goals must begin. And continued progress, wherever these men may be throughout the Navy, will ultimately produce the strong, effective manpower required for the most powerful Navy in the world.

THE TRAINING CENTER EMBLEM, MAIN GATE UNITED STATES NAVAL TRAINING CENTER BAINBRIDGE, MARYLAND HE Naval Training Center at Bainbridge came into being when the former President of the United States, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, approved the site and purchase of land and buildings from the Jacob Tome ln- stitute in early 1942. This property, including build- ings of the Tome School for boys, was enlarged by the purchase of adjacent land which brought the total area of Bainbridge to 1,132 acres. Bainbridge is located on the northeast bank of the Susquehanna River, 35 miles northeast of Baltimore and approximately 75 miles from Hlashington and Philadelphia. This activity is under the military command of the Commandant, FIFTH naval District, whose headquarters are in Norfolk, Virginia. President Roosevelt named the Training Center for Commodore VVil1iam Bainbridge, commander of the famous frigate "Constitution1' and founder of the first naval training school. The Center was first activated on October I, 1942, and ten days later was in operation training recruits. At the conclusion of hostilities on V-J Day, August 14, 1945, the Recruit Training Command had trained a total of 244,277 recruits. From August 1945 to -Tune 1947 the training activities of the Center decreased due to the eventual reduction in the strength of the Navy. On June 311, 1947, Bainbridge was deactivated as a Training Center. ln the summer of 19511, when the Korean crisis made it necessary, plans were formulated to reactivate the Center to provide men for the rapidly expanding fleet and shore bases. On February 1, 1951, Captain Robert Hall Smith, U.S.N., assumed command of the Center. ST. PAUL'S CHAPEL AND CENTER SALUTING BATTERY The Naval Training Center, under the command of the Center Commander, consists of four subordinate activities, each under a Commanding Ofhcer. These ac- tivities are: The U. S. Naval Administrative Command, the Recruit Training Command, the Service School Com- mand, and the U. S. Naval Hospital. The Administra- tive Command serves as the staff of the Center Com- mander in his direction and administration of the other subordinate commands and performs for him all the administrative, operational, and logistic functions not specifically assigned to other commands. These various functions include security, fire protection, supply, dis- bursing, commissary, Navy Exchange, personnel, and religious administration, medical and dental care, main- tenance and repair, transportation, communications and other vital services essential to the efficient and effective operation of a community totaling approximately 35,1100 persons. A component activity of the Administrative Command is the Dental Technicians School, the mission of which is to provide graduated recruits and fleet per- sonnel with the technical knowledge and training re- quired to develop dental technicians for duty with the fleet and shore based forces. The Recruit Training Com- mand, the largest of the four subordinate commands, is responsible for the administration of the Recruit Basic Training Program the principles of which are to guide the recruit in the transition from civilian to military life, to introduce him to Navy life, naval customs, tradi- tions, discipline and esprit de corps, and, by intensive training and schooling, to fit him for naval service. - iviil Y . f T - i .

HEADQUARTERS, RECRUIT TRAINING COMMAND The facilities of the Recruit Training Connnand con- sist of four large regiments. each named after naval heroes - Rodgers, Perry. James and Barney. Each camp is an entity in itself. - with its own drill hall, swimming pool, rifle range, mess hall, drill field, classrooms. bar- racks. and recreational facilities-and has the capacity to berth. mess and train a regiment of 5.000 population. All of the regiments are used to train regular male re- cruits: one regiment camp contains special facilities for training male recruits attached to the Recruit Prepara- tory Training Unit and for male reserve recruits ordered to active training duty for a period of two weeks, it also contains the only XVAVE Recruit Training School in the Navy. This school, previously located at the U. S. Naval Training Center, Great Lakes. Illinois. was established at Bainbridge in October of l95l. The Service School Command. the third major ac- tivity, provides further training for recruits and lleet personnel in the technical knowledge of ratings required by the operating forces, and prepares them for more ad- vanced education and training in such special field as gunnery. fire control, radio and other technical subjects. A component activity of the Service School Command is the United States Naval Academy Preparatory School which, during the Fall and YVinter months prepares en- listed men from all branches of the Armed Forces for the entrance examination to the U. S. Naval Academy at Annapolis, Maryland. During the Summer months this School also trains and selects enlisted men of the Navy and Marine Corps for entrance in the following Fall to the Naval Reserve Ollicers Training Corps Pro- gram at a college or university of their own choice. The fourth major subordinate activity is the U. S. Naval Hospital, a separate and detached command. The Hospital provides medical and surgical facilities for the proper care of all recruits, students. and permanently assigned naval personnel of the Center and their de- pendents. Operating in conjunction with the Hospital is the Hospital Corps School, with about l,200 students. whose function is to provide the technical knowledge and training necessary to develop these young men into Hospital Corpsmen for duty with the fleet and shore based forces. ft... .vw 'R VISITING OFFICER AT RECRUIT GRADUATION REVIEW f if I ,ww I . .ua .,.qI,,' .M, MARCHING ON THE COLORS AT RECRUIT GRADUATION 4 .1 'MN' .'

Here he is given complete medical and dental eicaminations, inocularions, and a real "crew" haircut. He then receives a full seabag of Navy uniforms and accessories, all of which are care- fully checked by trained personnel in order to insure a comfortable fit. After completing a battery of aptitude and classification tests,'he is finally channeled into a newly-formed company under the command of a Chief or First Class Petty Officer. Each company commander-especially selected for his demonstrated leadership abilities, professional qualities, and service experience-stays with his men from the time the company is formed to the day they gradu- ate and complete their basic training. Because of his influence on im- pressionable recruits, his attitude determines the attitude of those under him. lt's a 24-hour-a-day job for the best petty officers the Navy can mus- ter. To the recruits serving under him, he is a parent, guardian, and teacher-all rolled into one. X i X .att X Fr iff yifggs? clvlLlAN HISTORY...

By means of a battery of aptitude and other tests, followed later by per- sonal interviews, each recruit's previous training and education, past experience, skills, aptitude, motivation and personal interests are explored, analyzed and considered in relation to Navy jobs. The end result of this classification process is the eventual assignment of a recruit upon graduation to a general detail with further on-the-job train- ing, or to a technical school for training in special- ized lields. Whatever the assignment, the classifi- cation procedure insures that-within the practi- cal limits of modern personnel selection tech- niques-each individual is channeled into a billet wherein he will be able to contribute his utmost toward the accomplishment of the Navy's mission.

It is an integral part of this orientation program to instill a sense of self-respect and pride in achievement. During the first week of a recruit's training he is told by his commanding officer: "We expect you to grow physically and mentallyg but also moral- ly and spiritually. The opportunity for individual achievement, you will find, is one of the underlying, fundamental Freedoms of American Democracy." To better his understanding of the government and country he has sworn to defend, the recruit participates in practical citi- zenship training. He is alerted to Navy Regulations and rules of conductg he begins his study of the Uniform Code of Military justice by which all personnel in the Armed Forces today are guided and protected. lt is here that the recruit becomes acquainted with the customs, traditions, and courtesies of the U. S. Navyg their importance is explained in the Commanding Officer's Welcome Aboard Talk: "Good manners are an expression ofthe golden rule-their ob- servance and application are a hundred fold more necessary in the Navy than in civilian life." The new recruit understands that he has barely skimmed the surface of nautical "know hown, but realizes that he is beginning to build for himself a firm foundation upon which to base his advancement to a station of respect as a man who has achieved coniidence in himself through belief in God and country.

Bitreait of Ship! t E. fN'NN 1. o I HE usefulness of a Navy rests primarily upon the fact that it can use its offensive and defen- sive weapons effectively at sea. Inasmuch as most seamen usually become members of a naval gun crew, it is essential that a recruit in basic training gain a fun- damental knowledge of the weapons and ammunition he is most likely to encounter while serving at sea. Lectures and classroom instruction are held and wide use is made of models, mock-ups and motion pictures of naval guns in action. Practical demonstrations and par- ticipation of the recruit in actual gun and loading drills predominate. Safety precautions are strongly stressed in every period of instruction and strictly enforced in all drills. Each recruit is also taught the nomenclature and use of various small arms including the Garand CM-ID rifle, Carbine, Thompson submachine gun, Browning automatic rifle, and the .45 caliber automatic pistol. In addition, he actually fires the .22 caliber rifle marks- manship course on the small-bore indoor range.

In recruit training, the new Navy man is taught the rudiments of seamanship and closely associated subjects. Here he learns umarline- spike seamanshipu--how to select, use, knot, splice and care for lines and ropes. He also becomes acquainted with the nomenclature of a ship -learning the names and locations of all structural parts, the compart- ments, and the many and varied fittings found aboard a modern naval vessel. As part of his seamanship training, the recruit is made familiar with common deck gear, ground tackle, mooring procedures, and the types and uses of various small craft. He practices elementary signalling, op- erates battle telephones, and learns the important duties and responsi- bilities of a lookout. Finally, participation with his shipmates in general drills on board a mock ship not only enables him to put his newly formed skills into practice as an individual, but also teaches him the vital necessity of co- ordinated group action in routine evolutions as well as in the event of any emergency.

Accordingly, an intro- ductory experience in actual fire-fighting is given to every recruit in basic training. First, he is taught the simple chemistry of fire so that he will understand the nature of the various kinds of fire. Then, he is thor- oughly instructed in the use of each piece of the highly specialized Navy fire fighting equip- ment, and in the battle-tested methods em- ployed in' combating all kinds of fire, both afloat and ashore. After thorough indoctrination in the equip- ment, operating techniques, and safety pre- cautions he-together with his shipmates in small groups and guided by experienced per- sonnel-actually extinguishes raging oil and gasoline fires in simulated shipboard com- partments, various structures, and a mock air- craft. Included in this area of instruction is the presentation of the elements of gas warfare and radiological damage control. Each recruit is acquainted with factual data concerning the major effects of an atomic explosion and is shown how potential damage to personnel can be greatly reduced by planned action. mwfi-W T . i v,...,g Q va L 4 Nfv K - " 3 1-1 1 "'------ ,, M,,------saws...-.K SX ,, K i Li PRELIMINARY CONNECTIONS TRYING OUT THE NAVY ALL-PURPOSE NOZZLE I 1 PROPER TACTICS FOR...

V sv SOUND mind in a sound body is one of the basic aims of recruit training. A Navy man must be physically fit to withstand the rigors of a sea- going life, he must be a qualified swimmer who can safe- ly leave a sinking ship and live to fight again, and he must have developed, through athletic competition, a sense of fair play, a team spirit, and a fighting heart. Integrated into the recruit curriculum and considered of equal importance with academic work, the physical training program has, as its main objectives: the devel- opment of good posture, muscular coordination, strength, ability and endurance in recruits. These objectives are met through many physical activities including calis- thenics, confidence course, boxing, wrestling and other combative sports, swimming and sea survival and first aid. All of a recruit's physical training is not regimented. The Navy recognizes the value of recreational athletics. In addition to his participation in the competitive com- pany, battalion, regimental, and brigade scheduled sports activities, the recruit is encouraged to engage voluntarily in spontaneous games of an athletic nature in his free time, and adequate facilities and competent supervisors are provided for his convenience and enjoyment while exercising at play in his own area. 2m .

Mentally, he learns the real meaning of self-discipline, devel- ops a keen respect for leadership, and forms healthy and lasting habits of in- stantaneous reponse to commands from those in authority. Through the medium of competitive military drill, inspections and reviews,the recruit soon develops a real understanding of the importance of team work and a realization of his responsibilities to him- self, his shipmates, and his unit. And he learns that any unit which is imbued with an indomitable "esprit de corps" is invari- ably a winner.

Here, in traditional military pomp and ceremony, the graduating recruits take their departure from the first phase of their naval careers. Prior to the actual commencement, the Command Drill Of- ficer explains the review in an address to visiting relatives and friends. The review is conducted by recruits without assistance from Battalion or Company Commanders. It begins with the ren- dition of honors to the Reviewing Ollicer, generally a senior officer from this command or from another branch of the Armed Services, and includes mass military drill, special per- formances by the Band, Drum and Bugle Corps, and both Wave and Male Drill teams.

Opemtiom NE phase of each recruit's basic training is devoted to practical experience in the routine chores of mess- cooking, housekeeping, and general maintenance under the careful supervision of Well trained and experienced petty officers. During his service training period the recruit learns 'iby doing" how to perform his share of the routine tasks that maintain the fighting readiness of personnel and equipment, and make a ship or station a healthy, happy place in which to live. Mess-cook details put into practice the principles of proper food handlingg cleaning details exercise sanitation tech- niques which have been taught in classes conducted by specialists of the Hospital and Medical Service Corps. Crews of recruits assigned to Masters-at-Arms perform a variety of stevedoring, maintenance and cleaning jobs, all of which are duplicated on board any ship or station of the Naval Establishment.

In the navy there if nothing like a package from home. LARGE percentage of a recruit's time is spent in and around his bar- racks. Here the man is first taught, together with his shipmates, how to live in a limited amount of space in a harmonious and yet comfort- able manner. Here, also, is stressed the importance of cleanliness of personnel and barracks, and the necessity for good personal conduct and considerate man- ners, all of which are most essential in promoting the morale, dignity, integ- rity and physical well-being of men serving together under the rigorous con- ditions of naval life. In his barracks the new Navy man is instructed in the purpose and impor- tance of watch standing, and is impressed with the necessity for being con- stantly alert while performing his responsible duties as a Sentry. Daily inspections of recruits and of the barracks area are made to insure that the high standards of cleanliness and conduct are being properly met. The recruit soon learns how to wash and care for his many articles of clothing and personal gear, and how to stow them properly in a seabag or a shipboard-type locker. It is in his barracks, too, that the recruit learns much about Navy life from his company commander, it is here that he does much of his' out-of-class studying. Receiving mail, writing letters, engaging in conversation and other fraternal activities are important highlights of his barracks life. ,-7, I ,?':' CLOTHES ARE WASHED EVERY DAY RECRUIT EDUCATIONAL PETTY OFFICER HOLDING AN ALL-IMPORTANT REVIEW OF CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION .pr 'V x IVV Q -f N Z' E41 ' ,,.Q..,- A, , J .

All commanding officers are directed to insure that all personnel are reached by group instruction and by personal interview on all matters that promote the realization and development of these values consistent with religious beliefs of the individual con- cerned. In order to insure that the opportunity of continuing the religious practices and tradition of his home life is present, chaplains of the major faiths and denominations are assigned to each regiment of recruits in training. Vol- untary classes of religious instruction are held regularly at times when all personnel are free to attend. Closely allied to the religious program is the character and moral guidance series of lectures presented by the chaplains. These men, with years of experience in the naval service, both afloat and ashore, are particularly well quali- fied for this most important task. ln a course of lectures, the recruit is acquainted with the many and perplexing problems which will confront him during his Navy career, and is shown the right and wrong solutions to eachi Thus, with his ideals and convictions strengthened and bolstered by a strong religious and moral foundation, the new Navy man is better prepared to serve his God and his Country with distinction, honor, loyalty and devotion -not only as a sailor, but also as a citizen.

Recreation, therefore, becomes a vital. part of his training. A staff of experienced officers and chief petty officers, to- gether with civilian librarians and recreation directors, works constant- ly to provide relaxation, amusement and entertainment for the recruit during his off-duty hours. Perhaps the most popular type of recreation afforded the recruit is the recruit dance held each month in a regimental drill hall, Senior companies of recruits play host to the recruit WAVES and to USO junior hostesses from adjacent communities. USO chaperones, duty officers and officers and their wives attached to the command are pres- ent to help everyone enjoy the affair. A recruit dance orchestra pro- vides the music, free refreshments are available to all throughout the evening. A recreation building in each regimental area provides many facili- ties for relaxation. Here the recruit may bowl, play ping-pong, bil- liards, pool and other games, enjoy television and radio or listen to a variety of records. An attended library of books and current maga- zines and a comfortable reading room, are available to him. In addition, a Navy Exchange store, snack bar and soda fountain are open for his convenience. At frequent intervals, variety shows, name bands and USO shows visit the command to entertain the recruits, each Saturday and Sunday evening the latest movies are shown in the regimental drill halls. For the hobbyist there is a well equipped hobby shop where the interested recruit may work in leather, metals, wood, plastics or model building. Best of all, perhaps, are those visiting days when the recruit may entertain his family and friends at the Recreation Center, or, in the summer, enjoy eating an outdoor lunch with them in the picnic area. , . , 'K Q, f -. , kkf, ,ff NA ,Q 2 5 5 ,iw .-L,m.wv- t 3 f A-gi .. ., 9 .' ,jf ,.

After their initial training, the varied aspects of which are pictured in this book, they are qualified to take advantage of many tangible career opportunities presented by the Navy Rating System. The term "rating" applies to groups of Navy occupational duties which require essentially the same aptitudes, training, experience, skills, and physical and mental abilities. Wlithin the rating there are "rates" which indicate a man's pay grade and his level ol' experience, knowledge, and re- sponsibility. The general principles of the rating system evolved during the Navy's l50-odd years of existence, the details of its structure were worked out by ollicers, enlisted men, and civilians experienced in personnel management. In itself it contributes much to morale by providing a real incentive for the enlisted men through its rec- ognition of distinct occupations and in its pro- gram for steady advancement. All Seaman Recruits QSRQ who are graduated from recruit training are automatically advanced to Seaman Apprentice QSM. Aboard a ship or station, the apprentice receives additional train- ing in general seamanship and related work and. after six months, become eligible for promotion to Seaman CSMQ. By this time he has become interested in the duties performed by personnel in a specialty rating and from then on he is promoted in a particular rating such as are seen on these pages.

From there. career steps in all ratings lead to one of twelve warrant oflicer billets or to a commission as an olhcer in a limited duty category. Promotion and pay are subjects close to the heart of every Navy man and the objectives of this system for advancement can be stated very simply: to provide qualified personnel in each The Navy uses large numbers of meters and gauges, watches, clocks, typewriters, adding machines, etc. To maintain these many and varied machines in good working order, Instrumentmen UMD of great skill are required. if K.. 7, 5' E - 1 in 1' P Ag ga E 5 ' .Xi D e ge Q n eg-ag, ' T - xli -'T - im.-.7 A ' - 4 H , X t, s-T-- , S V .

They carry guns, bombs, torpedoes, and rockets to attack the enemy on the sea, under the sea, in the air, and on the land.

The Quartermaster CGM? performs or as- sists in the performance of these duties. Radar is used extensively in navigation and maneuvering, in recog- nition and identification, in searching for and following the move- ments of other ships and aircraft. The responsibility of the Radar- man IRDJ is to operate this equipment and to interpret the infor- mation received from it. Much of the credit for the good health of Navy personnel is due to the work of the Hospital Corpsmen fl-IMJ. They are the Navy's phar- macists, medical technicians, and first aid men. i nz 5- 4 -7 .

Basic to the system of advancement are the needs of the service. A properly balanced crew consisting of the multitude of ratings necessary to man a fighting ship can only be effective if each man holding a rate can do the job expected. Next in importance is the spark of incentive which is needed in training, discipline, and ca- reer planning. Promotions are controlled so that they offer a reward to the man who successfully prepares himself for the next higher rate, and who is willing and able to accept responsibility. The third major objective is the building of morale. Every conscientious man must be made to feel that eventual advancement is open to him at a speed commensurate with his ability and demonstrated performance. Eligibility standards provide control of the quality of personnel advanced and it is these standards which present an equal opportunity for each man to best take advantage of his position - besides the vocational training in the schools and on-the-job, there are numerous training manuals published by the Navy for all the ratings and all personnel are urged to study these manuals in order to prepare themselves for early advance- ment. Furthermore, there are opportunities in the Navy to complete a perhaps interrupted civilian education, begin or further college training, or obtain a working knowledge of other vocations. Any of these aims can be realized through the hundreds of courses available to every Navy man through the United States Armed Forces Institute. college correspondence courses, General Educa- tional Development tests, and classroom work. These pages give only a glimpse of the variety and types of career vocations which the Navy offers to those who are willing to recognize and take advantage of the opportunities. Naval activities in peace and war are carefully recorded visually by means of motion pictures and still photographs taken by skilled Photographer's Mates KPHJ. i C-at li E 'qnd' ' l I I gs I 7-' I nj 2' I", I .,.

The traditional path is through the Naval Academyg how- ever, in addition there are now several programs in which enlisted personnel may prepare themselves for commissioned status. It is not necessary that appli- cants have college training to meet the requirements of some of the programs and there are certain cases where even men without high school diplomas may qualify. Ol' the programs and schools ollered, the Naval Academy, the Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps, the Naval Aviation Cadet program, the Officer Can- didate School and the Aviation Ofricer Candidate program are open at the present time. The U. S. Navy and the U. S. Marine Corps obtain most of their career oflicers from two sources, the Naval Academy at Annapolis, Maryland, and the Naval Reserve Oflicer Training Corps units which are established in many of the leading colleges and uni- versities throughout the United States. The U. S. Naval Academy provides four years of college train- ing leading to a commission in the Regular Navy or Marine Corps. Admission is gained by competitive examination among enlisted personnel in the naval service or by Presidential or Congressional appoint- ment. Those who successfully pass the examination are transferred to the Naval Academy Preparatory School which is located at the U. S. Naval Training Center, Bainbridge, Maryland. lt is the purpose ol this school to prepare the applicant for the competi- USS Wisconsin fires u National gun salute near Lisbon during Midshipmen practice squadron cruise.
