Rather, it is a serious and formative experience for anyone preparing for life as a sailor. In years to come, this book will, it is hoped, help recall the pleasant and the not so plea- sant, the exciting and the routine, the humorous and the gravely important moments spent at Recruit Training Command, Naval Training Center, Great Lakes, Illinois. The keel is the backbone of a ship. This cruise book-The KEEL- is dedicated, therefore, to every Navyman who has completed training at Great Lakes and become the enlisted man, the sailor, the backbone of the United States Navy. Photographed by Navy Exchange Photographic Services Center Printed under contract by Walsworth Publishing Company, Inc.

The men entering Recruit Training Command and seeing this sign for the first time will probably think of home for a brief moment and wonder of things to come, but before long, they start their busy schedules. As a motivating factor during basic training, each company competes with the other companies in the follow- ing areas: military smartness, precision in drill, smart seamanlike appearance, cleanliness of living spaces, physical training, scholastics, and, finally, departmental excellence which is the average of all phases of train- ing. The success of each company in these areas is indicated by the flags they will carry at their graduation. Since every man in the fleet must work as part of a closely-knit peace keeping team, this competitive system enables the new Navyman to learn and understand the need for team work and dependence upon one another. Over two hundred years ago, on October 13th, 1775, the Continental Congress established the Navy. The Navy takes great pride in the past accomplishments, reflecting back on years of tradition, dedication and sacrifice, our Navy's main strength is and will continue to be our people-highly trained, versatile professionals who maintain and operate the most modern and sophisticated ships and aircraft in the world. So, once again, we welcome you to Recruit Training Command. ,awe ra jj? is ag? Wifi ffegggjgwi TURN -5. I - EIQSSQRSSE if kg" Ji :Ju 5Wa,.wYi4f,: '4:?i"b"".t: L' W - M' I V .

To some this is a very emotional momentg to others very humorous. The purpose of the haircut is to maintain cleanliness and neatness as well as to establish the concept of good military appearance.

The mission of recruit training at Great Lakes has varied little since its early days, but the facilities and the techniques have changed significantly over the years at Great Lakes to meet constantly changing needs. The original thirty-nine building complex provided facilities for 600 recruits undergoing sixteen weeks of training. More than 125,000 World War I sailors began service in the Navy at Great Lakes. Emergency build-ups brought the number of buildings to 775 with a capacity of 50,000 men on a twelve-week training schedule. I Depression years saw Great Lakes at a standstill, but World War II saw a rapid expansion program to relieve strained facilities. A growth to almost 1,000 buildings was able to handle a peak on-board count of 67,000 recruits as Great Lakes trained almost 1,000,000 men for the fleet. At one point, the demand for more men was so great that training curriculum was a highly-accelerated three weeks. The normal post-war recruit population has been 10,000 with significant increases during the Korean and Vietnam conflicts. Women for the regular Navy were trained at Great Lakes from 1948 to 1957, taking a ten-week WAVE training course. An advanced training period of twelve days was im- plemented for seamen, firemen, and airmen rates so that those who leave Great Lakes and go directly to the fleet would be more adequately prepared for their duties. The staff under peacetime conditions is made up of thirty-one officers and 559 enlisted men to train an all- volunteer force of 35,000 recruits annually. The true meaning of discipline is not punish- ment but that development of self-control and teamwork which enables men to strive for perfection and accomplish greatness. MISSION The Mission of Recruit Training Command is to provide a training program which will: -effect a smooth transition from civilian to Navy life -foster patriotic behavior -affirm the dignity of the individual -encourage high standards of personal responsibility, conduct, manners, and morals -create a desire for self-improvement and advancement -provide the' recruit with knowledge and skills which are basic to all naval personnel A -develop pride in unit and the Navy and a desire to observe appropriate naval customs, ceremonies, and traditions -provide the Department of the Navy with personnel possessing an effective level of physical fitness NAVY CREDO 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 instant offensive action to win in war . . . It is upon the maintenance of this control that our country's glorious future depends. The United States Navy exists to make it so. Tradition, valor, and victory are the Navy's heritage from the past. To these may be added dedication, dis- cipline, 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 usp our adversities strengthen us. Service to God and country is our special privilege. We serve with honor. 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 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. 33 CGMPANY COMMANDERS IG llnstructional Guidancel The Company Commander is not only a father, mother, counselor, and disciplinarian, he also instructs the men of his company in the proper procedures for keeping their compartment as well as their personal appearance-trim, neat, clean and well balanced. This procedure is called the Company Commanders IG. HANGING THE TOWEL FOLDING THE BLANKET 34 I 1-Sr A0 I k na S f RECRUIT TRAINING COMMAND HEADQUARTERS AND CLASSROOMS RECRUITS SPEND MANY HGURS IN CLASSES Each recruit spends many training hours in the classroom. He studies and is tested on the traditional skills of the Navy such as Navy time, watch standing, and the command organization of ships and other Navy units. He is also schooled inthe Uniform Code of Military justice and in the history, courtesies, customs, ships, uniforms, and awards of the Navy. On a more sociological plane, to ensure the proper rounding out of the modern sailor in the modern Navy, he is exposed to courses in Drug Awareness and Defensive Driving and he participates in Race Relations seminars to make him aware of reactions to other people and of their reactions to him. Even though these activities do not lend themselves well to photographic reproduction, they are, nonetheless, a very vital and es- sential part of the recruit's preparation for service as a knowledgeable, skilled, and active Navyman. - ww I' mt. x 4: I , .1 , W Wife liwllqsa, If il it .

Though he might be "ASMO-ed" for violation of the Uniform Code of Military justice or dis- ciplinary reasons, it is more likely that a recruit is re-assigned to a later-formed company because of failed tests or a need for remedial reading work. Or, he might be hospitalized due to illness or an acci- dent. It is not easy for a recruit to leave his friends in his original company, but it is a mark of maturity when he can make new friends in another company and work with them to attain that ultimate goal of graduation to the fleet. .-1""'4o,I M HUMAN RESCURCES The Human Resource Management Division at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, has as its primary function teaching the new recruits about the Navy's Human Resource Management Support System. The recruit curriculum taught consist of: Overseas DiplomacyfMission Ele- ment, Equal OpportunityfRace Relation Education, Drug Abuse Control!Alcohol Prevention, Leadership!Management Training. The recruits are taken through many hours of the above instruction to prepare them for entering and func- tioning in the fleet. 38 'QS 'I-uug.,,.

Recruit Training Com- mand, Great Lakes, continues this tradition. Various religious services are conducted by Navy Chaplains, local civilian clergy, and selected lay people. Within these varieties of worship, each recruit is able to attend a worship service of his religious faith. CATHOLIC SERVICE -n 65 S SS l U! 'fn Ili an HEI. UK!! li!!

W. GROSS USN COMPANY COMMANDER :agus EMC E. J. RAMIREZ, JR USN COMPANY COMMANDER THE coiviPANY COMMANDER . . .is an outstanding senior petty officer who has been selected as part of the corps of company commanders at Great Lakes. Prior to "picking up" his first company, he has been trained in techniques of instruction, principles of leadership, and administrative procedures in schools at Great Lakes Naval Training Center, both at Service School Command and at Flecruit Training Command. The company commander instructs his recruits how to keep themselves, their clothing, their equipment and their living quarters in a smart and shipshape manner while he leads them in military and physical drill so that they gain military proficiency and physical stamina. He also helps them to exercise increasing amounts of individual and group responsibility as they grow in the qualities of self-discipline necessary to carry out the exacting routines of life as men of the United States Navy. The company commander is genuinely interested in the needs, welfare and problems of the recruits he commands. He must be formal yet friendly so that though he is fully and firmly in control, the recruits do not have to hesitate to approach him for his assistance with their problems or for his referral to the appropriate member of the Navy's profes- sional corps: the chaplain, the medical officer or the legal officer. The company commander, most of all, is an inspiring example of the successful Navyman upon whom the recruits can pattern their own lives as sailors and as citizens. 73 BARRAC KS LIFE One of the more important lessons the recruit learns during boot camp is how to live with others in a military organization. Life and living conditions in the Navy differ so greatly from anything he has known in civilian life that learning to live in close quarters as a member of a military group becomes a major function of recruit training.

Here, the recruit learns by doing.
