THE UNITED STATES NAVY
GUARDIAN OE OUR COUNTRY
The United States Navy is responsible for maintaining control of the
sea and is a ready force on water at home and overseas, capable of
strong action to preserve the peace or of instant offensive action to win
It is upon the maintenance of this control that our country's glorious
future depends. The United States Navy exists to make it so.
WE SERVE WITH HONOR
Tradition, valor, and victory are the Navy's heritage from the past.
To these may be added dedication, discipline, and vigilance as the
watchwords of the present and future.
At home or on distant stations we serve with pride, confident in the
respect of our country, our shipmates, and our families.
Our responsibilities sober usg our adversities strengthen us.
Service to God and Country is our special privilege. We serve with
THE FUTURE OE THE NAVY
The Navy will always employ new weapons, new techniques, and
greater power to protect and defend the United States on the sea,
under the sea, and in the air.
Now and in the future, control of the sea gives the United States
her greatest advantage for the maintenance of peace and for victory
Mobility, surprise, dispersal, and offensive power are the keynotes to
the new Navy. The roots of the Navy lie in a strong belief in the
future, in continued dedication to our tasks, and in reflection on
our heritage from the past. Never have our opportunities and our
responsibilities been greater.

A KEEL, as defined in Bluejackets Manual, is "the
backbone of a ship." In the Navy of today, as in the
past, the enlisted man and his shipmates form the
backbone of the NAVY. Recruit Training Command
assumes the responsibility of transforming the young
men of America into the earnest and dedicated
sailors needed to man the fleets of the UNITED
This book is a pictorial representation of the train-
ing received by every recruit as he is indoctrinated
in the duties and responsibilities he must take up in

ant reminder of one of the most formative and im-
portant periods in a man's life Whether he is a career
Navy man or a civilian reminiscing over his "hitch"

The Weeks and months served in Recruit Training
Command are not easy, but, of necessity, are rigor-

THE NAVY AND SEA POWER
Early in the seventeenth century Sir
Walter Raleigh observed that "Whosoever
commands the sea, commands the trade,
whosoever commands the trade of the
world, commands the riches of the world
and, consequently, the world itself."
That principle is as true today as it was
centuries ago. Nothing of major import has
occurred, not even the advent of the mod-
ern aircraft, to lessen the importance of
sea power and sea trade to our national
defense and prosperity.
The day has not been reached, nor ever
will be reached, when control of the seas
of the world can be exercised solely by
shore-based aviation, guided missiles, and
the atom bomb. Control of the sea can be
exercised effectively only by forces which
travel the sea and can remain at sea for
long periods of time.
Sea forces and sea-based air forces-in
other words, sea power-furnishes the on-
ly effective control of the sea. Sea power
has a mobility which land power can never
have. Whatever the weapons used, aircraft
carriers fhighly mobile air fieldsj can be
moved at high speed to the most favorable
points for attack on enemy targets. What-
ever the weapons used, large ground forces
can be transported rapidly by naval means
to selected coastal points and landed
against opposition. The mere threat of such
attacks at unpredictable points would im-
mobilize large enemy forces held in reserve
to meet them, thus forcing the enemy to
effect a wide dispersion. Dominant sea pow-
er, therefore, in the hands of the United
States and its Allies, would deny to an en-
emy the ability to attack us from the sea
while conferring on us the ability to launch
a seaborne attack at any selected point or
The continued vital importance of sea
power is clearly evident. When the oceans
of the world are no longer required for the
transport of men and goods, then and only
then can the United States afford to dis-
pense with a Navy.
THE NAVY'S OFFENSIVE POWER
Fulfilling an historic role the United
States Navy today, as in the past, main-
tains a vigilant guard over the freedom
of the seas. Naval power, as exhibited
throughout the struggles of World War II
and as used in the United Nation's efforts
in the Far East, is an indispensable 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 aggres-
sive challenge Whenever and wherever of-
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 shipborn
guns, but can strike blows deep in enemy
territory, and can deliver at the target the
atom bomb, when and if needed. Fast car-
rier task forces are able, Without resort-
ing to diplomatic channels, to establish off-
shore anywhere in the world airfields com-
pletely equipped with machine shops, am-
munition dumps, tank farms, warehouses,
together with quarters and all types of ac-
commodations 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 available at the enemy's fron-
tier without assault and conquest.
AMPHIBIOUS ASSAULT AND NAVAL
Whenever and wherever assault and con-
quest is deemed necessary, the accomplish-
ment of an amphibious assault until a
stable beachhead has been established is
solely the responsibility of the Navy. The
amphibious task forces are composed of all
types of ships, naval aircraft, under-water
demolition teams, reconnaissance facilities,
and the specialized troops-the Marine
Corps. Before, during, and after an initial
assault naval guns and rocket launchers,
in close coordination with naval aircraft,
are able to devastatingly bombard enemy
troops and installations, and lend close
strategical and tactical support to our own
ground forces in their advance to a desired
SUBMARINE AND ANTI-SUBMARINE
The Navy's submarine forces, with a
history of outstanding performance in
World War II, are ready to assume again
their vital tasks 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 devel-
oped electronic devices, are training to-
gether as a team to track down and de-
stroy any undersea craft of an aggressor
In addition to its function of denying
the use of the sea to an enemy, the Navy
now has the responsibility of lifting cargo

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 operations 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 War II average of forty-four pounds per man per
day in any theatre of operation. The tremendous and ever-in-
creasing task of logistical supply to overseas bases will always
remain a naval responsibility.
SUPERIOR NAVAL STRENGTH
Through all its varied components, the United States Navy
exercises control of the seas and the coastal areas bounding
them. All units of the fleet display unrivaled flexibility and
mobility and, together, comprise a vast fighting potential-
inimical to the interests of aggressive-minded nations-and a
powerful safeguard of freedom.
In measuring our own capabilities against a potential enemy,
due appreciation must be taken of the factors of relative
strength and weakness. We may, for example, find ourselves
comparatively weak in manpower. We know happily that we
-gwwi-nl 'A 'W """""""'P'v's W
are superior in naval strength, which includes the strength of
It is axiomatic that in preparing for any contest, it is wisest
to exploit-not neglect-the elements in which we have superior
strength. We must lead from strength-not from weakness. We
should "Accentuate The Positive."
Thus it is that a policy which provides for balanced develop-
ment and coordinated use of strong naval forces must be fos-
tered if we are, within the foreseeable future, to meet the chal-
lenge of arms of the forces which seem to oppose us.
TRAINED NAVAL PERSONNEL
The Navy's fighting ships and aircraft represent the results
of America's most advanced scientific research and development.
They are precision products of American ingenuity and indus-
try. But scientific research, improved equipment, and new naval
construction alone will not insure that the Navy can maintain
its present World leadership. The need for highly trained and
qualified personnel to man the ships and aircraft is now greater
To meet this need, the Navy is constantly revising and im-
proving its many and varied training programs and facilities
in order to keep pace with modern educational and technical
advancements, and thus provide the highly trained and quali-
fied personnel required to maintain and operate "The greatest
Navy the world has ever known."
THE NEW CONCEPT OF RECRUIT TRAINING
The recruit of today differs somewhat from his World War
II counterpart. Today most of the men in recruit training are
under twenty years of age. These men are young and impres-
sionableg many of them are entering the Navy with definite
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 transition from civilian to military life must be
smooth, indoctrination in the customs, traditions, and regu-
lations of the service must be thorough, basic Navy knowledges
and skills must be developed, pride in and love for the Navy
must be carefully cultivated. Especially in time of peace must
there be an increase in the emphasis placed on the mental, moral
and social development of the individual. He must be led to a
desire for self-improvement and advancement, a realization of
his status in and importance to the Navy-a sense of belongingg
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 Navyls stake in this enterprise is tremendous. From these
men will come the petty oflicers, the warrant oilicers, 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 through-
out the Navy, will ultimately produce the strong, effective man-
power required for the most powerful Navy in the world.

Great Lakes is the Midwest's largest Naval instal-
A veteran of two world wars and the Korean con-
flict, Great Lakes has served primarily as a recruit
training establishment-bridging the gap from civil-
ian to military life-by introducing recruits to Naval
customs and discipline, and preparing them through
intensive training for the requirements of Naval
During World War II, approximately 1,000,000
Bluejackets were trained at Great Lakes-about one
out of every three in the wartime fleet, and twice
the number trained at any other installation.
In addition to its primary function of training re-
cruits, Great Lakes provides advanced training in
various technical schools for the numerous specialists
required in todayis modern and complex Navy. In
these schools, men of the fleet learn to be electronic
technicians, machinists, gunners, enginemen, elec-
tricians, dental technicians, boilermen, and hospital-
men, to name a few of the specialties. The Dental
Technician School is one of the few Armed Forces
schools offering instruction to Army and Air Force
personnel as well as Navy. The Hospital Corps School,
which can accommodate 1600 students, is a part of
the U. S. Naval Hospital at Great Lakes.
The Naval Hospital is one of the Navy's major
hospitals for treatment and care of ill and injured
personnel. At the height of the Korean fighting, more
than 700 battle casualties were under treatment here.
The establishment of two large Naval supply ac-
tivities here in recent years has increased Great
Lakes' importance as a Naval supply center. Numerous Naval
activities throughout the Midwest, as well as ships of the fleet,
obtain equipment through the enlarged Naval Supply Depot.
In addition, a large Electronic Supply Office at Great Lakes
controls the procurement and distribution of repair parts re-
quired for the maintenance of electronic equipment at shore
stations and in Navy ships.
Great Lakes also is the headquarters of the Ninth Naval Dis-
trict-the largest Naval district in the nation, encompassing 13
midwestern states. The Commandant of the Ninth Naval Dis-
trict directs the hundreds of Naval activities in this land-locked
area. Included among these activities .is administration of the
large Naval Reserve program in the Midwest, where civilians
who are Naval Reservists receive practical instruction in weekly
drills at 72 training centers. They also participate in annual
cruises aboard ships of the Great Lakes training squadron.
Other activities at Great Lakes have all-Navy functions.
These include: lj the Naval Examining Center, which prepares
and processes rating examinations for the entire Navy, 21 Fleet
Home Town News Center, which receives news stories and
photographs of Naval personnel from all parts of the world and
distributes them to hometown newspapers, and 31 Navy Medi-
cal Research Unit No. 4, which conducts research into the
cause, cure, and control of respiratory diseases.
Waves have been stationed at Great Lakes since the Navy
volunteer Women's organization was established in 1942. A
Wave recruit training school was located here from 1948 to
1951. In addition to filling essential jobs at Great Lakes, Waves
also attend some of the specialty schools here.
Great Lakes' history dates back to 1904, when a board ap-
pointed by the President selected the site of the Naval Training
Center from among 37 locations on the Great Lakes. The Mer-
chants' Club of Chicago raised the funds to purchase the prop-
erty, and the land was presented to the Government as a gift
from the people of Chicago.
On July 1, 1911-six years to the day after construction
began--Great Lakes was commissioned. It consisted of 39 build-
ings, with a capacity of 1,500 'men. During World War I, the
training center was expanded to 775 buildings with a capacity
of almost 50,000 trainees. More than 125,000 men received their
first Navy training here during World War I.
Great Lakes' population dropped sharply during the years
between Wars, but population and construction began a rapid
increase after President Roosevelt proclaimed a national emer-
gency on September 9, 1939. Pearl Harbor threw the expansion
program into high gear, with 13,000 civilians working in shifts,
seven days a week, to build additional barracks, mess halls, and
training facilities. A total of 675 buildings had been erected by
the end of 1942 and in 1944 the population reached a peak of
more than 100,000.
At the end of World War II, Great Lakes consisted of ap-
proximately 1,000 buildings. Since then, these facilities have
been utilized in the continued training of recruits and in Great
Lakes' expansion as an important advanced school center for

HALL OF FAME
WW gl T W IN PROCESSING
HE TRANSITION from civilian to Naval life begins in the Receiving unit where
the recruit is first introduced to the procedures of IN-PROCESSING. After
logging in and getting watch caps, one of the first things they learn is their
rights and privileges as defined in the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Then
they take the Navy's General Classification Test Battery. lt is through the results
of these tests, combined later with an interview by a trained classification inter-
viewer, that the Navy is able to select the appropriate career pattern for each
man entering the service. Designations for special schooling after completion
of recruit training are made at this time. lt is here that they are given thor-
ough medical and dental examinations, as well as a complete outfit of Navy
uniforms and clothing. Finally, it is here that the recruit first meets his company
commander, and the other members of his company with whom he is destined
to spend the duration of his training.

HE "I" FLAG is awarded weekly to the company in the regiment that excells
in the technical aspect of recruit training. The purpose of the technical train-
ing department is to teach the recruit the basic subiects and varied responsi-
bilities of Navy life that he will meet in his Naval career. The subiects included
are ordnance and gunnery, indoctrination, damage control, and seamanship.
Most of the time in technical training is spent in the classroom attending
lectures and watching training films. However, practical training is gained
through field trips and student participation in class demonstrations. Once a
week the recruit is given a written test to determine his progress in technical
training. The winning of the "I" FLAG is determined by the company which
has the highest test score average for that week.

NDOCTRINATION covers the many facets of
Navy life from early history to cold
weather training. The planks so necessary in
the construction of a true man-o-warsman,
the reverence for naval customs and tradi-
tions, the obedience to naval discipline, and
the irreplaceable esprit-de-corps are care-
fully Iaid in this process of indoctrination.
The essential seed of personal pride is
planted in order to promote within the recruit
the high Navy standard of responsibility,
conduct, manners, and morals. Here he learns
the importance of team-work in ioint tasks
and the responsibility of the individual to-
wards his shipmates and his ships.
Success within the Navy is measured in
terms of advancement. Included in the objec-
tives of indoctrination is the development of
a desire for self-improvement and advance-
Indoctrination is more of a mental than a
physical process, since the U. S. Navy ensures
that its men are the best prepared mentally
as well as physically. As a member of the
military, the recruit is now a sailor-citizen.
With this in mind, he becomes aware of the
fundamental workings of democracy, the
Navy's place in democracy, and the American
way of life.

ORDNANCE and GUNNERY
1 , ,
MONG the many varied operations ex-
pected of a ship at sea, perhaps the
primary function of its existence 'is to be
able to protect its country by virtue of pos-
sessing superior firepower. But having the
guns is only half the iob . . . the other half
involves providing highly trained men to
operate the weapons. The ORDNANCE and
GUNNERY Division presents I a series of
classes which attempt to introduce to the
recruit the general types of ordnance
equipment utilized in the Navy.
He spends a good deal of time with his
rifle, or as he later learns to call it, his
piece. After becoming familiar with the
weight and feel of the piece, the recruit is
instructed in its principles of operation.
He learns to hold it, aim it, and fire it
most effectively. He is introduced to the
other various small arms that he is likely
to encounter during his service years, i.e.,
the Garand M-1, the Browning Automatic
Rifle, and the Thompson Sub-Machine Gun.
" G 0. , rr
His instruction also includes a series of
lectures and demonstrations designed to
familiarize him with the various types of
weapons and ammunition, and how to
identify them. He receives practical expe-
rience in the loading and firing operation
of the 40 MM and 5"f38 guns. Although
the ammunition used is of the dummy
type, and completely harmless, still, speed,
thoroughness, and safety factors are
stressed as if performed under battle
The recruit leaves the command confi-
dently and secure in his mind that in a
minimum of time he may take his place
beside his shipmates in the world's best

HE PURPOSE of the program of instruction at the DAM-
AGE CONTROL Training Unit is to teach the basic principles
of shipboard damage control. The teaching of these basic
principles is divided into two main topics: 111, how to fight
fire, and 121, how to defend effectively against Atomic, Bio-
logical and Chemical Warfare.
The program is set up in such a way as to accomplish the
following specific obiectives: 111, remove unwarranted fear
of fire: 121, develop a feeling of confidence within each man
in his ability to conquer fire: 131, provide actual experience
in the basic procedures of fighting shipboard-type firesf and
141, acquaint each recruit with the individual protective
measures to be taken in the event of an Atomic, Biological,
or Chemical Warfare attack.
Prior to the day of fire-fighting on the field at the Damage
Control Training Unit, the recruit is given four periods of
classroom instruction to acquaint him with the chemistry of
fire and the equipment used in fighting fires. Next comes a
full day of actually fighting "live" fires. Here he is able to
put his classroom knowledge into practical use. Here, terms,
such as "mechanical foam," "Handy BiIly," and "O.B.A."
take on a real meaning.
ln addition to the fire-fighting training, the recruit re-
ceives classroom instruction in A.B.C. warfare and iust what
to do in all types of attacks. Leaving nothing to chance, he
learns how the Navy Gas Mask can be a useful companion.

N SEAMANSHIP classes, an entirely new
language and a multitude of new skills are
introduced to the recruit. Although some sea-
manship skills can be mastered only from
long experience at sea, the foundations upon
which these skills are based form an im-
portant part of recruit training. Emphasis
here is placed upon teaching the language of
the sea and the names and uses of the tools
of his new trade.
Among the subjects taught, are marlin-
spike seamanship and knot tying, steering
and sounding, the principles of anchoring
and mooring, practical instruction in the use
of sound-powered telephones, and the recog-
nition of various types of ships, their char-
acteristics and their structures. The recruit
learns the principles of shipboard organiza-
tion and something of the role he will later
play as a member of some ship's company.
By the time he completes his training in sea-
manship, he is no longer bewildered by the
"mysterious" iargon of the blueiacket.

LEAN, neat, pride in personal appearance-these are the words and phrases
synonymous with the blueiackets of the United States Navy. With this in mind, each
individual in every company strives to do his share in winning the weekly STAR FLAG.
Daily, the barracks are inspected for Star flag competition. Correct locker stowage,
neat bunks, clean clothes and ditty bags are emphasized. Once a week the recruits
are given a personnel inspection by the Training Evaluation Division, the results of
which also count towards the winning of the STAR FLAG.

FROM the PHYSICAL TRAINING division the recruit develops strength, ability,
endurance, and coordination through mass exercises, swimming, the ob-
stacle course, and combative sports.
Swimming and survival at sea are highly important parts in the training
curriculum. The recruit may enter training as a qualified life guard or as a
non-qualified swimmer, but all leave equipped in the methods of sea survival
in order to ensure that they have the maximum protection against the potential
perils of the sea. Special emphasis is placed on fundamental swimming strokes,
abandon ship procedures, and flotation drills.
Classes in boxing and wrestling not only present a diversion from ordinary
classroom work, but also give the recruit confidence through the skill he gains
in developing his reflexes and coordination.
Closely allied to the physical training curriculum is the competition between
companies for the "A" flag for excellence in athletics. Under excellent super-
vision from the instructors in the P.T. division, the recruit spends many excit-
ing and healthful hours in athletic competition. "A" FLAG points are won in tug-
of-war, boxing, swimming meets, volleyball and basketball games, rope climb-
ing, and relay races.
lt is through this competition in sports that the ideals of fair play and sports-
manship are instilled within the recruit. The ioy of fierce competition among
the teams is equalled only by the enthusiasm and cheers from the spectators
that echo throughout the camps.

PERHAPS the flag that does most to promote personal achievement is the
regimental "C" FLAG. "C" flag points are awarded for individual participa-
tion in the Regimental and Brigade staffs, the drill team, the band, the drum
and bugle corps, the choir, and the variety shows. The recruit also earns points
toward the "C" flag whenever his picture or an article about him appears in
the hometown newspaper.
Although talent is the key word for the "C" flag, points may also be won
by the company when a high percentage of the company takes out savings
bonds as an allotment.

NEVER is competition between companies as keen as when they are com-
peting for MILITARY DRILL FLAGS. A great deal of the recruit's first days
is spent learning the fundamentals of military drill, the manual of arms,
marching, physical drill under arms, and semaphore signalling. Competition for
the Military Drill flags begins in his second week of training, and from then
on, the company's efforts are directed towards preciseness, teamwork, and in-
stantaneous response to orders. When the recruits leave boot camp to ioin the
fleet, they carry with them the habits of quick response to orders and the co-
ordination of individuals towards team effort.
The knowledge of the individual coordinated into a team, and that team's
instantaneous response to an order given by one in authority, is the formula
for the operation of the Navy in times of peace and war.

PROBABLY the most important thing the recruit learns during boot camp is
how to live with others in-a military organization. Life and living conditions
in the Navy differ so greatly from anything he has known in civilian life that
learning to live in close quarters as a member of a military group becomes a
maior mission of recruit training.
The BARRACKS is not only a place to sleep and to stow clothes, but it is the
most important classroom. Here, the recruit learns by doing. The scrubbing of
clothes, the cleaning of the barracks, and the constant inspections all serve
but one purpose-to prepare him for a successful life during his tour in the
And all is not work in the barracks, for the recruit learns the need of fel-
lowship and relaxation. Mail call is one of his most precious moments, and the
time he takes to write home is time well spent.

FLOAT or ashore, each naval unit is generally a self-sustaining unit. The
messing of the crew, all the housekeeping chores, and the watch standing
must be performed by those assigned to the unit. Throughout the blueiacket's
naval career, regardless of his rate or rating, he, in some way, will be con-
cerned with these service duties to which he is introduced in SHIP'S WORK
TRAINING. In any unit, men in the lower rates will usually perform the "chores"
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 ex-
perience in Ship's Work Training. For all but one week of the 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.
Although the fifth week is specifically designated for training in service
duties, much of this training continues throughout the entire training period.
Every messenger or sentry watch and every cleaning detail is a part of the
training in the problems of community living.
ln the Recruit Training Command it is believed that the things the recruit
learns in Ship's Work Training can best be taught by actually doing them, for
experience is the greatest teacher of all.

HEN the recruit enters military service he is given the opportunity of
attending the RELIGIOUS SERVICE of his choice. Immediate contact is
made with the Chaplain of his faith who acquaints him with the chapIain's role
in conducting Divine Services, administering the Sacraments, and the develop-
ing of a religious program.
Lectures on character guidance and related films are presented by the
chaplain wherein the recruit is encouraged to develop moral responsibility, self
control, and a spiritual life.
We find that the chaplain is available for personal interviews and that
he stands ready to offer assistance at all times, either personally or through the
agencies of the Navy Relief Society and the American Red Cross.

LTHOUGH recruit training is highly routine and the schedule is planned so
that everyone receives equal and consistent training, the Navy does recog-
nize the necessity of providing various forms of RECREATION to satisfy the many
divergent interests and energies of individuals.
Recruit Training Command has bowling alleys, TV lounges, swimming
pools, gymnasiums, libraries, and recreation centers available during off duty
hours. The hobby shop is staffed with skilled instructors in photography, model-
craft, leathercraft, and carpentry. Professional variety shows feature the per-
sonal appearances of top performers of the stage, screen, radio and TV. In
addition, the latest and finest in movie entertainment is available.
The Navy Exchange operates special stores and cafeterias to provide the
recruit with necessities and extra personal items he may need. The small profits
derived from these sales are then utilized in providing the various recreational
facilities and programs outlined above.

HE GRADUATION REVIEW represents the climax of the story of training at
Recruit Training Command. This performance is put on for relatives and
friends so they may witness the results of training. The Review is held on Ross
Field during the summer, and in one of the large drill halls during the winter.
The recruits are not aided by the company commanders or officers who have
worked with them during the past weeks. This is their chance to display newly
learned abilities in military drill, military bearing, and to perform in the Navy's
traditional military pomp and ceremony.
Added to the graduating companies are the performances of the special
units-the drum and bugle corps, the drill team, and the band. These units are
commanded by recruits and all of the members are men in training.
The march on the colors, the national anthem, the presentation of the
honorman awards, and final pass in review form a vivid and exciting picture
that will last in the mind of the recruit for the rest of his life.
THE AMERICAN SPIRIT
HONOR MEDAL is a medal-
lion offered and provided
by the Citizens Committee
for the Army, Navy and Air
Force, Inc., of New York,
N. Y. The American Spirit
Honor Medal has been ac-
cepted by the Department
of Defense for use as an
award to enlisted personnel
who, while undergoing
basic training, display out-
standing qualities of lead-
ership best expressing the
Initiative, Loyalty, and High
Example to Comrades in
Arms. This medallion has
also been accepted by the
Department of Defense for
the promotion of closer ties
between the Armed Services
and the Civil Communities
