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.

Navy Strategy 8. Tactics
In the face of the constant aggression of commu-
nism, the United States has geared her offensive and
defensive power to retaliate regardless of the type
of aggression, be it cold war, brush fire 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
Lebanon is an excellent example. Our Sixth Fleet
carriers and Marines were there within seven hours
of the call for help.
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
nuclear ballistic missile bases all over the world
capable of striking enemy bases on a moment's
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 dis-
tant targets or, in limited wars, unleashing iust 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 de-
livering explosive power equivalent to that of all
bombs used in World War ll.
b. Highly technical and fast moving anti-submarine
warfare task forces to search out and destroy
enemy submarines threatening merchant sea lanes
and our carrier task forces. This group combines the
talents of killer submarines, a versatile air combina-
tion of bombers, helicopters and fast moving car-
riers: and modern, highly technical surface search
ships. These units are equipped with underwater
destructive devices capable of locating, homing and
destroying enemy submarines.
c. Ballistic missile submarines capable of unleash-
ing atomic missile attacks against any target in the
world from unknown, mobile and submerged loca-
tions-constant hidden monitors for world peace.
The Role of the Navy'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 officers. 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, operation, and
maintenance of the Navy's ships facilities and equip-
ment. 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 tw
year's time. Navy men are the best trained technic In
men in the world today, few industrial concerns
give equivalent training to their people to prepare
them for industrial iobs. 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 important 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 man-
power. The Navy has instituted under "General
Order 21" the Moral Leadership 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 desperately urgent need for men
who will give their best efforts, indeed their very
lives, to the perpetuation of the American ideal.
Essentially the Moral Leadership program puts t e
total responsibility for Navy men with the line
officers and petty officers 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 effi-
ciency 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
The New Concept of Recruit Training
The recruit of today differs somewhat from his
World War ll counterpart. 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 im-
portant to the Navy and these young men that their
careers get the best possible start in this new
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.
ln time of peace there must be increased emphasis
placed on the mental, moral and social develop-
ment of the individual. He must be led to a desire
for self-improvement and advancement, to a reali-
zation of his status in and his importance to the
Navy-a sense of belonging, and to an understand-
ing 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 appreciation of the American way of life and
to adopt, for himself, high standards of responsi-
bility, military performance, leadership and conduct.
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
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 de-
velopment and progress, wherever these men may
be throughout the Navy, will ultimately produce
the strong, effective manpower and leadership re-
quired for our great Navy and its role of maintaining
POWER FOR PEACE.

HISTURY UF GREAT LAKES
Great Lakes is the Midwest's largest Naval installa-
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 civi-
lian 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 Il, approximately 1,000,000
Blueiackets 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, at Service SchooI's
Command, advanced training in various technical
schools for the numerous specialists required in
today's modern and complex Navy. In these schools,
men of the fleet learn to be electronic technicians,
machinists, gunners, enginemen, electricians, dental
technicians, boilermen and hospitalmen, to name a
few of the specialties. The Dental Technician School
is one of the fewQrmed Forces schools offering
instruction to Army and Air Force personnel as wel
as Navy. The Hospital Corps School, which can ac-
commodate l600 students, is a part of the U. S.
aval Hospital at Great Lakes.
The Naval Hospital is one of the Navy's maior
hospitals for treatment and care of ill and iniured
personnel. At the height of the Korean fighting,
more than 700 battle casualties were under treat-

The establishment of two large Naval supply ac-
tivities here in recent years has increased Great
Lakes' importance as a Naval supply center. Numer-
ous 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 Oflice 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 District-the largest Naval district in the na-
tion, encompassing l3 midwestern states. The Com-
mandant of the Ninth Naval District 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: IJ the Naval Examining
Center, which prepares and processes rating exami-
nations 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 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 training school was located here
from 1948 to 1951. In addition to filling essential iobs at
Great Lakes, Waves also attended some of the specialty
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 Chicago 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 .luly 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 50,000 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 emergency on 9 September 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 ll, Great Lakes consisted of
approximately 1,000 buildings. Since then much new
construction has been accomplished in a continuing
modernization program. New barracks, a new mess
hall and other modern buildings are replacing the
World War Il wooden construction.
In keeping geared to modern methods, the Recruit
Training Command has installed a closed circuit tele-
vision channel in the classrooms of its up-to-date class-
room building. With sets in each room 2400 men can
be taught at once using only one cameraman and one
instructor-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 maior bastion in the Navy's ever-continu-
ing 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 maior center of
advanced technical training.

JOHN PAUL JONES, 'I747-'I792 KCECELIA BEAUXJ
QUALIFICATIONS OF THF NAVAI OFFICER
IT IS BY NO MEANS enough that an oflicer 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, punctilious 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 no 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 incornpetency, and well meant
shortcoming from heedless or stupid blunder.
CReproduction of paintings in this section are by courtesy of the U. S. Naval
Academy Museurn, the United States Naval Institute, the Naval Photographic Center,
Chief of Naval Operations, the Cornrnandant ofthe Marine Corps, and the Electric
OHN PAUL JONES set the pattern for aggressive, resolute fight-
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. Whether the ship be wooden, sail, ar-
mored, or atom powered, the indomitable spirit of fighting,
seafaring, 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 14, 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 IVar of 1812, 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 XVar of 1812.
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 Galbraith 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 Winslow in the USS
KEARSAGE. Perhaps the outstanding Civil War naval hero
was David Glasgow Farragut Q"Damn the torpedoes, full speed
ahead!"j, 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 War
at the turn of the century, led and bred the naval leaders of
our next war. Y'Vilson, 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 1917 and 1918.
THE RETURN OF THE MAYFLOWER. COMMANDER .l. K. TAUSSIG, U. S. NAVY, LEADS
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
Pacific 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 "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 f577,626 tonsj and 1,178 merchant vessels
15,053,491 tonsj, 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. While 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, McCain, Spruance, Lockwood,
Fletcher, over three million other officers 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. We are bound to the past
only by the good that it has provided and the glorious traditions
handed down to us. YVe 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. It 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.

The purpose of the program of instruction at the
DAMAGE 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: ill, how to fight fire, and K2l, how to defend
effectively against Atomic, Biological and Chemical
The program is set up in such a way as to accomplish
the following specific obiectives: ill, remove unwar-
ranted fear of fire, 121, develop a feeling of confidence
within each man in his ability to conquer fire, 131, pro-
vide actual experience in the basic procedures of
fighting shipboard-type fires, and Ml, acquaint each
recruit with the individual protective measures to be
taken in the event of an Atomic, Biological, or Chemi-
cal 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 fight-
ing "live" fires. Here he is able to put his classroom
knowledge into practical use. Here, terms, such as
"mechanicaI foam," "Handy Billy," and "O.B.A." take
on a real meaning.
ln addition to the fire-fighting training, the recruit
receives 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.

In Seamanship classes, an entirely
new language and a multitude of
new skills are introduced to the re-
cruit. Although some seamanship
skills can be mastered only from long
experience at sea, the foundations
upon which these skills are based
form an important part of recruit
training. Emphasis here is placed up-
on teaching the language of the sea
and the names and uses of the tools
of his new trade.
Among the subiects taught, are mar-
lin-spike seamanship and knot tying,
steering and mooring, practical in-
struction in the use ot sound-powered
telephones, and the recognition of
various types of ships, their charac-
teristics and their structures. The re-
cruit learns the principles of ship-
board organization and something of
the role he will later play as a mem-
ber ot some ship's company. By the
time he completes his training in sea-
manship, he is no longer bewildered
by the "mysterious" iargon ot the

Clean, 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.

ROM 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 emphasis is 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 for 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
effective 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 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 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.

When the recruit enters military service he is given the opportunity of attending the RELI-
GIOUS 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 Sacra-
ments, and the developing 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.

Although recruit training is highly routine and the schedule is planned so that everyone
receives equal and consistent training, the Navy does recognize the necessity of pro-
viding various forms of RECREATION to satisfy the many divergent interests and ener-
gies of individuals.
Recruit Training Command has bowling alleys, TV lounges, swimming pools, gymnasiums,
libraries, and recreation centers available during off duty hours. The hobby ship is staffed
with skilled instructors in photographs, modelcraft, leathercraft, and carpentry. Profes-
sional variety shows feature and personal appearances of top performers of the stage,
screen, radio and TV. In addition, the latest and finest in movie entertainment is avail-
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 out-

THE 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.
