THE UNITED STATES NAVY
GUARDIAN OF 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.

UNITED STATES NAVAL TRAINING CENTER
A KEEL, as dejined in Bluejacket Manual, is "the backbone
of a ship." In the Navy of today, as in the past, the enlisted
man and his shipmates form A the backbone of the NAVY.
Recruit Training Command assumes the responsibility of trans-
forming the young men of America into the earnest and dedi-
cated sailors needed to man the fleets of the UNITED STATES
This book is a pictorial representation of the training re-
ceived by every recruit as he is indoctrinated in the duties and
responsibilities he must take up in the billet of a man-o'-
warsman, and so it is called THE KEEL.
In future years, THE KEEL should prove a pleasant re-
minder of one of the most formative and important periods
in a man's life whether he is a career Navy man or a civilian
reminiscing over his "hitch" in the naval service.
The weeks and months served in Recruit Training Com-
mand are not easy, but of necessity, are rigorous and demand-
ing. This training is diligently planned and administered in
order to develop the strength of character, loyalty, and patriot-
ism in every trainee so as to prepare him to defend his country,
its ideals and people, against any foreign aggressor.

VICE ADMIRAL W. R.
U. S. NAVY
Early in the seventeenth century Sir Walter Raleigh observed that
"Whosoever commands the sea, commands the trade, whosoever com-
mands the trade of the world, commands the riches of the world and,
consequently, the world itselff, This principle is as true today as it
was centuries ago. The startling advances in transportation and weapon
technology have not lessened the importance of trade via the sea
power to world freedom and our nation's prosperity.
The sea comprises over 70 percent of the world's surface. Over 99
percent of the tonnage imported or exported to or from the United
States travels on the sea. Of the 77 raw materials considered strategic
to our existence, 66 must be imported from nations across the seas.
On any one day there are, on the average, over 2000 ships at sea
engaged in bringing items of trade to and from our country and the
friendly nations of the world.
It would be impossible for our country or any friendly country to
survive today without the free use of the seas. As Napoleon learned
to his sorrow, "those storm tossed ships out theren were the life-blood
of his country's power, and without control of the seas, defense for
any length of time was impossible. A strong Navy, now and in the
future, is our only real guarantee for a defense against aggression
and the threat of communism.
The communists, always good students of history, have learned the
importance of a strong Navy to control the seaways too. They are
building a Navy at a frantic pace. Presently the Russians are estimated
to have more than 450 submarines, having learned from us and the
Germans the importance of submarines in controlling the seas from
World War II. This number far exceeds Germany's submarines, num-
bering 57, which almost brought England to her knees in the early
stages of World War II-and exceeds the number that we presently
Navy Strategy 65 Tactics
In the face of the constant aggression of communism, the United
States has geared her offensive and defensive power to retaliate re-
gardless of the type of aggression, be it cold war, brush hte incidents,
political revolution or all-out atomic war. In all of these areas, the
Navy plays the principle part in maintaining the freedom of the
friendly nations of the world.
Lebanon is an excellent example. Our Sixth Fleet carriers and
Marines were there within seven hours of the call for help. N
Our Seventh Fleet has demonstrated that aggression can be thwarted
by the presence of our fast carrier attack force in and around Formosa,
Korea and other Asiatic nations. ,
Our Polaris-launching submarines spell the absolute deterrant to
atomic war, providing hidden mobile atomic missile bases all over
the world capable of striking enemy bases on a moment's notice.
The Navy insures our position as the leading sea power by being
strong in three tactical areas:
a. Fast moving carrier task forces, dispersed in action over an area
the size of New York State, capable of delivering nuclear Weapons
against distant targets or, in limited wars, unleashing just the right
amount of punch to terminate aggression. These task forces can destroy
enemy targets without endangering our allies. They can also land Marine
troops through helicopter "vertical envelopement" to take and occupy
critical disputed areas. Today one carrier based supersonic plan is
capable of delivering explosive power equivalent to that of all bombs
used in World War II.
b. Highly technical and fast moving anti-submarine warfare task
forces to search out and destroy enemy submarines threatening mer-
chant sea lanes and our carrier task forces. This group combines the
talents of killer submarines, a versatile air combination of bombers,
helicopters and fast moving baby carriers, and modern, highly technical
surface search ships. These units are equipped with underwater de-
structive devices capable of locating, homing and destroying enemy
c. Ballistic missile submarines capable of unleashing atomic missile
attacks against any target in the world from unknown, mobile and
submerged locations-constant hidden monitors for world peace.
The Role of the Na1Jy's Men
Control of the sea by means of the Navy's modern and constantly
improving weaponry would not be possible without the skills and
devotion to duty of the Navy's enlisted men and ofhcers. In this day
of electronic devices, missiles, nuclear power plants, megaton bombs,
and supersonic planes the need for intelligent, highly trained and
qualified personnel to man the ships, submarines and aircraft is now
greater than ever before.
To insure the "know how" that Navy men need, the Navy has an
extensive school program to train today's specialists in the theory, op-
eration, and maintenance of the Navy's ships facilities and equipment.
Extensive training is needed in order to possess the strongest and
greatest Navy the world has ever known.
This schooling in some instances requires up to two year's time.
Navy men are the best trained technical men in the world today, few
industrial concerns give equivalent training to their people to prepare
them for industrial jobs. Navy training allows Navy men to take
responsible positions in industry upon their return to civilian life.
The technical side of the Navy man is only part of the success side
of the picture. The more powerful that weapons become, the more im-
portant becomes the will and character of the men who must use them.
The advance of technology in warfare has put one item at an absolute
premium-dedicated manpower. The Navy has instituted under "Gen-
eral Order 21" the Moral Leaderrhip program, a series of discussion
topics to excite young men's minds with the real meaning of America
and the intrinsic value of the individual human being, America's
mission in the world, the specific mission of the Navy, and the des-
perately urgent need for men who will give their best efforts, indeed
their very lives, to the perpetuation of the American ideal.

Essentially the Moral Leaderfhip program puts the total responsi-
bility for Navy men with the line officers and petty ofiicers who must
lead these men in battle. Now, besides seeing to it that men are merely
well-trained for combat, Naval leaders are charged with bringing their
men to a peak of efficiency and keeping them there. This program is
more important to our combat readiness than any weapons system ever
developed. This time we are dealing with the very heart of our whole
combat capability-the man.
The New Concept of Recruit Training
The recruit of today differs somewhat from his World War II coun-
terpart. Today most of the men in recruit training are under twenty
years of age. These men are young and open minded, many of them
are entering the Navy with a definite intent to make the Navy their
career. Thus it is very important to the Navy and these young men
that their careers get the best possible start in this new venture.
The transition from civilian life to military life must be smooth,
indoctrination in the customs, traditions, and regulations of the Navy
must be thorough. Basic Navy knowledge and skills must be taught
and developed. Pride in and love for the Navy and their country must
be carefully and logically cultivated.
In time of peace there must be increased emphasis placed on the
mental, moral and social development of the individual. He must be
led to a desire for self-improvement and advancement, to a realization
of his status in and his importance to the Navy-a sense of belonging,
and to an understanding of his place in a democracy as a citizen as
well as a part of the Navy. He needs also to be led to a full apprecia-
tion of the American way of life and to adopt, for himself, high
standards of responsibility, military performance, leadership and con-
The Navy's stake in the recruit's development is tremendous. From
these men will come the petty officers, the warrant officers and an
important part of the Officers of the Navy of the future. The Navy
cannot be better than the men and women who comprise it.
The goals set forth above are stated in terms of ideals and may
never be totally realized. However, it is in recruit training that these
goals are set and the roots established and nurtured. Continued devel-
opment and progress, wherever these men may be throughout the
Navy, will ultimately produce the strong, effective manpower and
leadership required for our great Navy and its role of maintaining
POWER EOR PEACE.

Great Lakes is the Midwests largest Naval installation.
A veteran of two world wars and the Korean conflict,
Great Lakes has served primarily as a recruit training es-
tablishment-bridging the gap from civilian to military
life-by introducing recruits to Naval customs and dis-
cipline, and preparing them through intensive training for
the requirements of Naval service.
During World War ll, approximately 1,000,000 Blue-
jackets 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 recruits,
Great Lakes provides, at Service Schools Command, ad-
vanced training in various technical schools for the numer-
ous specialists required in todays modern and complex
Navy. In these schools, men of the fleet learn to be elec-
tronic technicians, machinists, gunners, enginemen, electri-

cians, dental technicians, boilermen and hospitalmen, 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
The Naval Hospital is one of the Navy's major hospitals for treat-
ment and care of ill and injured personnel. At the height of the
Korean lighting, more than 700 battle casualties were under treatment
The establishment of two large Naval supply activities here in re-
cent 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 required for
the maintenance of electronic equipment at shore stations and in
Great Lakes also is the headquarters of the Ninth Naval District-
the largest Naval district in the nation, encompassing 13 midwestern
states. The Commandant of the Ninth Naval District directs the hun-
dreds 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
Other activities at Great Lakes have all-Navy functions. These in-
clude: lj the Naval Examining Center, which prepares and processes
rating examinations for the entire Navy, 25 Fleet Home Town
News Center, which receives news stories and photographs of Naval
personnel from all parts of the world and distributes them to home-
town newspapers, and 33 Navy Medical Research Unit No. 4, which
conducts research into the cause, cure, and control of respiratory
Waves have been stationed at Great Lakes since the Navy volunteer
women's organization was established in 1942. A Wave recruit train-
ing school was located here from 1948 to 1951. ln addition to filling
essential jobs at Great Lakes, Waves also attended some of the
specialty schools here.
Great Lakes' history dates back to 1904, when a board appointed by
the President selected the site of the Naval Training Center from
among 37 locations on the Great Lakes. The Merchants' Club of Chi-
cago raised the funds to purchase the property, and the land was
presented to the Government as a gift from the people of Chicago.
On 1 July 1911-six years to the day after construction began-
Great Lakes was commissioned. It consisted of 39 buildings, with a
capacity of 1,500 men. During World War I, the training center was
expanded to 775 buildings with a capacity of almost 50,0001 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 emergency on 9 Septem-
ber 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 approxi-
mately 1,000 buildings. Since then much new construction has
been accomplished in a continuing modernization program. New bar-
racks, a new mess hall and other modern buildings are replacing
the World War II wooden construction.
In keeping geared to modern methods, the Recruit Training Com-
mand has installed a closed circuit television channel in the classrooms
of its up-to-date classroom building. With sets in each room 2400
men can be taught at once using only one cameraman and one in-
structor--and it has been found that this method of instruction is far
more efficient than the older methods.
From its earliest beginnings the base on the shore of Lake Michigan
-the Great Lakes Naval Training Center-has been a major bastion
in the Navy's ever-continuing progress forward in training. Today, as
in the past, it maintains its position as both the largest center for the
training of recruits and as a major center of advanced technical

QUALIFICATIONS OF THE NAVAI OFFICER
T IS BY NO MEANS enough that an officer of the Navy
should be a capable mariner. He must be that, of course, but
also a great deal more. He should be as well a gentleman of
liberal education, refined manners, punctilio-us courtesy, and
the nicest sense of personal honor.
He should be the soul of tact, patience, justice, firmness, and
charity. No meritorious act of a subordinate should escape his
attention or be left to pass Without its reward, even if the re-
ward is only a Word of approval. Conversely, he should not be
blind to a single fault in any subordinate, though, at the same
time, he should be quick and unfailing to distinguish error
from malice, thoughtlessness from incompetency, and Well meant
shortcoming from heedless or stupid blunder.

Academy Museum, The United States Naval institute, the Naval Photographic Center,
Chief of Naval Operations, the Commanderit oi the Marine Corps, and the Electric
OHN PAUL JONES set the pattern for aggressive, resolute iight-
ing which has always been the ideal of the U.S. Navy. The
heritage of our modern Navy is a vast montage of individual
maritime achievements. VVhether the ship be wooden, sail, ar-
mored, or atom powered, the indomitable spirit of fighting,
sea lfaring, American men have made our country the bastion
of the free world today.
To John Paul Jones went the honor of first hoisting the Stars
and Stripes over an American man-of-war, the USS RANGER,
of receiving the first national salute in Quiberon Bay on Feb-
ruary l4, 1778, from France. In command of the BONHOMME
RICHARD he defeated and captured the SERAPIS off Flam-
borough Head, giving our Navy its famous fighting words upon
an invitation to surrender, "I have not yet begun to fight."
With such inspiration thousands of American sailors have
followed in his wake, making individual courage collectively
the spirit of our Navy. Commodore Edward Preble, like John
Paul Jones, filled his officers and men with esprit and fighting
courage. Some of "Preble's boys" became the great leaders of
the YVar of l8l2, Stephen Decatur, James Lawrence, Thomas
Macdonough. Perry swept the British sea power off Lake Erie.
Hull and Bainbridge in the CONSTITUTION, along with
Decatur in the UNITED STATES, established American naval
power on the high seas during the first year of the YVar of l8l2.
As our nation grew in stature in the family of nations, so
did our naval officers grow in stature as diplomats. Typical of
their exploits was Commodore Matthew Calbraith Perry's nego-
tiations with the Emperor of Japan in 1853-54.
Our war between the states developed the same kind of fight-
ing men. David Dixon Porter became famous on the Mississippi
River. Captain Raphael Semmes in the commerce raider, CSS
ALABAMA, alone captured sixty-nine union ships before he
was destroyed off Cherbourg, France by Vkfinslow in the USS
KEARSAGE. Perhaps the outstanding Civil War naval hero
was David Glasgow Farragut Q"Damn the torpedoes, full speed
aheadlnj, whose fleets enforced the blockade of the Confederacy.
One generation of fighting men breeds its successors. Dewey,
and Sampson, our naval leaders in the Spanish-American YVar
at the turn of the century, led and bred the naval leaders of
our next war. Hfilson, Simms, Hart, Taussig, and many others
next guided our Navy in the defeat of the German U-boat
menace and convoyed our armies safely to France in the war
with Germany during l9l7 and l9lS.
THE RETURN OF THE MAYFlOWER. COMMANDER J. K. TAUSSIG, U. S. NAVY, I.EADS
THE FIRST DIVISION OF DESTROYERS INTO QUEENSTOWN, IRELAND, MAY 4, 'I9'I7,
TO COMMENCE OUR ANTISUBMARINE WARFARE IN WORLD WAR I.
Between the wars the Navy devoted its meager resources and
manpower, ships and funds to research and development in
aviation and submarine warfare. Stricken at Pearl Harbor and
the Philippines in 1941, practically blockaded by German sub-
marines operating off our East coast ports, the nation built, in
three short years, the most powerful naval force in the history
of the world. The indomitable spirit of our carrier dive bomber
and torpedo plane pilots turned the tide of the war in the
Pacihc in the Battle of Midway, June 4th, 1942. From that day
on, naval power in the Pacific slowly but surely drove the
Japanese imperial forces into their home waters. Powerful Am-
phibious forces, protected alike by carrier air power and our
submarine forces, swept the Japanese armies off the Pacific
Islands. Our fast carrier task forces destroyed the Japanese
Fleets. Possibly the greatest air battle in the naval annals was
the f'Mariannas Turkey Shoot," in june 1944, in which the car-
rier pilots of Admiral Marc Mitcher's Task Force 58 and anti-
aircraft fire accounted for most of the 346 Japanese planes
destroyed. After the war the exploits of our "silent service," the
men who fought under the sea in our submarines, was finally
publicized. Ranging throughout the Pacific and into the very
harbors of Japan itself our fighting submarines sank 214 Jap-
anese naval vessels 677,626 tonsj and 1,178 merchant vessels
5,053,491 tonsy, a monument to the greatest submarine force
During this period the Atlantic Fleet was rapidly breaking
the back of the German Navy by sweeping from the sea the
greatest submarine menace ever to threaten this nation. Our
convoys were supplying the allied armies in Europe and our
ships were conducting landings in Sicily, Italy and finally Nor-
mandy. The greatest "two ocean" Navy in the world had played
a large part in bringing victory to America and the free world.
And this war, like all wars, led to the development of new
inventions, new techniques and new weapons conceived by
American genius and perfected by men of vision. Mfhile industry
was being welded into a mighty supply force, our Seabees, under-
water demolition teams, amphibious sailors, marines and sup-
porting army divisions were being welded into a team that
spelled victory at sea.
Added to the illustrious naval leaders of this great Navy,
King, Nimitz, Halsey, Mitcher, lXlcCain, Spruance, Lockwood,
Fletcher, over three million other ofhcers and men also served.
The brainwork, the sacrifice, the devotion to duty of genera-
tions past and present is the heritage on which we continue
to build and improve our Navy. IVe are bound to the past
only by the good that it has provided and the glorious traditions
handed down to us. We are linked to the future by our respon-
sibility to deliver to it the best we have received and the best
we can produce.
Victorious over japan and Germany, there is still no world
peace. Our Navy fought again in Korea for three years and
the task forces are still spread across the seven seas.
From Barry to Bainbridge to Burke the indomitable fighting
spirit is the real strength of our naval heritage.

The transition from civilian to Naval
life begins in the Receiving unit where
the recruit is first introduced to the pro-
cedures of IN-PROCESSING. After log-
ging in and getting watch caps, one of
the first things they learn is their rights
and privileges as defined in the Uni-
form Code of Military Justice. Then
they take the Navy's General Classifica-
tion Test Battery. lt is through the re-
sults of these tests, combined later with
an interview by a trained classification
interviewer, that the Navy is able to
select the appropriate career pattern
for each man entering the service. Des-
ignations for special schooling after
completion of recruit training are made
at this time. lt is here that they are
given thorough medical and dental ex-
aminations, as well as a complete out-
fit of Navy uniforms and clothing. Fi-
nally, 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 du-
ration of his training.

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: 1'l1, 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 fires: 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 "Iive" fires. Here he is able to
put his classroom knowledge into practical use. Here, terms,
such as "mechanical foam," "Handy Billy," 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 SEAMANS'l-IIP 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 subiects 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.
,,m,, ' '
Qiiig iif -.'A
FROM the PHYSICAL TRAINING program the recruit develops strength, ability,
endurance, and coordination through mass exercises, swimming, the ob-
Sfdfle course, and competitive 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 emphasisis placed on fundamental swimming strokes,
survival at sea procedures, and flotation drills.
Classes in boxing and team sports 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, swimming meets, volleyball and basketball games, rope climbing,
and relay races.
It 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.

TEAMWORK within each recruit company forms a tight bond and makes
each Bluelacket a true shlpmate. This sense of Navy prlde IS displayed
by Special Units Companies, such as the Band, Drill Team, and Drum and
Bugle Corps as they exhibit their skills acquired during training at parades
Working as one unit, all 88-man companies compete against one another
as they vie for competitive DRILL FLAGS. During the first days of training,
a recruit spends much time learning the fundamentals of military drill, the
16-count manual of arms, marching, and physical drill under arms. Begin-
ning competition tor the Military Drill Flag in the second week of training,
the companys' single effort is directed toward preciseness, and instantane-
ous response to orders as a team. When the recruits leave boot camp to ioin
the Navy's Operating Forces, they carry with them the habits of quick re-
sponse to orders and the coordination of individuals towards team effort.
Knowledge, a coordinated effort, and immediate action, is the formula for
eltective operation of the Navy in times of peace and war.

NE OF the more important subiects the recruit learns during boot camp is
how to live with others in a military organization. Life and living condi-
tions 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 be-
comes 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 learna. 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 Navy.
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.

SHlP'S WORK TRAINING
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 SHlP'S WORK
TRAINING. ln 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.
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 chaplain'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 ot? duty
hours. The hobby shop is stalted 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 wee ks. 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. T-hese 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.
