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 honor. THE FUTURE OE THE NAVY The Nav will alwa s em lo new wea ons new techni ues and Y Y P Y P a q 9 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 in war. 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. THE KEEI. THE STIJRY IIE REIIRUIT TRAINING IN THE UNITED STATES NAVY AT GREAT LAKES, ILLINUIS EF Q I I .f 'Vila li?

In the Navy of today, as in the past, the enlisted man and his shipmates form the backbone of the NAVY.

' In "' MN' f W w ki 1 ,f Navy Strategy 8. Tactics ln 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 the world. 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 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 dis- tant 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 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 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 iobs. Navy training allows Navy men to take responsible positions in industry upon their return to civilian life. Moral Leadership 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 the 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 capability-the man. 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 open minded: many of them are entering the Navy with a definite intent to make the Navy their career. Thus it is very im- I -I , L . portant 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. 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 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 cle- 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. 111552 A153 21,31 NW- ' ',,wig,myf,gw Q Uv 1151-21, 5 f ww if :ff fi W im f H 1 ' E-1 'Q 1 'ifiif ' , i' i?4f" - 1157552 fy :B Qi i' ' ' ' .. ffm!

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 service. During World War ll, 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 School'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, looilermen 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 ac- commodate 1600 students, is a part of the U. S. Naval 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- ment here. "W w1,gmi1.ffs52ewg4fg,w. xzrfv 'f ,,.3,..-m.L., 37' ,V ' - i f -Vw .,-, M 1 .1 w, Wg: PLN li 334.

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 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 District-the largest Naval district in the na- tion, encompassing 13 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: ll the Naval Examining Center, which prepares and processes rating exami- nations for the entire Navy, 2D 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 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. ln addition to filling essential iobs 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 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 .Iuly 1911-six years to the day after construction began-Great Lakes was commissioned. lt consisted of 39 buildings, with a capacity of 1,500 men. During World War l, 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 ll 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. 'van-."'xl :L s .- .

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 incompetency, and well meant shortcoming from heedless or stupid blunder. llieproducfiorw of paintings in this section are by courtesy of the U.

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 hghting, 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 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 War 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 YVar of 1812. As our nation grew in stature in the family of nations, so did our naval oflicers 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 Winslow in the USS KEARSAGE. Perhaps the outstanding Civil War naval hero was David Glasgow Farragut f"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 War at the turn of the century, led and bred the naval leaders of our next war. IVi1son, 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 J. K. TAUSSIG, U. S. NAVY, LEADS THE FIRST DIVISION OF DESTROYER5 INTO QUEENSTOWN, IRELAND, MAY 4, 1917, 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 in history. ' 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 tl1e 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. 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. AIR DEFENSE PACIFIC TASK FORCE OPERATION, WORLD WAR II.

IN PRUCESSING 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. It 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. m 0 5, I bg A ,f IILASSIFICATIUN TESTS MEDICAL AND DENTAL EXAMINATIUNS HAIR CUTS X W ff f , 1 f , ff Y 1 '14 -zu, mil' -MQ ,7 Qicf , IILUTHING ISSUE mww tiff' 'Ni 'N 'Nm w w ww w w w '-MN.

The teaching of these basic principles is divided into two main topics: 1'I1, how to fight fire: and 121, how to defend effectively against Atomic, Biological and Chemical Warfare. The program is set up in such a way as to accomplish the following specific obiectives: 111, 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 141, 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 "mechanical 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. S 1. .L K ' A .. f Q ' - I L h if NX. ..,.. k-L x . , ,K DQQQJ F X M w,,x.X. ..M,,,,m, nk i,...,w.,,, M .MN dm -.

SEAMANSHIP 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 ot the tools of his new trade. Among the subjects taught, are mar- lin-spike seamanship and knot tying, steering and mooring, practical in- struction in the use of sound-powered telephones, and the recognition of various types ot ships, their charac- teristics and their structures. The re- cruit learns the principles ot 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 of the blueiacket. wifi? . , i .

Correct locker stowage, neat bunks, clean clothes and ditty bags are emphasized.

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. !?'!!"" --.f Tfiif V 4,3154 .SV a W Q t 355 i tw if ,W,,, x I ,.. we 1 x . 40- in W A 1 1 2 A, N.

This sense of Navy pride 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 and graduation. 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. L .... f 4 , ' . .,.A..

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. 'fn lgqujillllil-.

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 concerned with these service duties to which he is introduced in SHlP'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 experience 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 impor- tant 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. is-if 1 ,M...a..... ,pf-ff' MXL l LA. ngggw W WW L Nw! ""-Q-...M QW RELIGIOUS LIFE 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.

'I -fm, J RECREATION 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- able. 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- lined above. is f KW mefww , . vi X x ...W- L Qmmmwm 5 3 fw i '32 H M, N.

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. 2 1 1 4 S 2 x i --,ff 1 9 . mwvwwmmwwwwm Q 5 gf .LJ 6. qw..
