The time spent undergoing recruit training is not easy-nor is it intended to be. 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.

Welcome to Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Illinois.
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-
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
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.

RECRU IT SENTRY
The men entering the
gate with their civilian
clothes on and seeing
the recruit sentry on
watch have just begun
the difficult transition
from civilian to Navy Iife.
"SO THIS IS IT
Within the first few hours of the first day at
Recruit Training Command each new recruit
receives his first haircut. 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.
HERE IT GOES
'WHERE DID IT GO?
"lT'S DONE THIS WAY"
FILLING OUT FORMS
Within the first few days at
Recruit Training Command
the recruits go through
processing. The recruits
processing consist of: inter-
views, filling out many forms,
clothing issue, medical and
dental checks, and many
"THE NEXT QUESTION IS .
Clothing issue is one of the most confusing
parts of the first day of training. Here the
recruit receives his first Navy issue of un-
iforms which consists of clothing from the
cap to the shoes.

Great Lakes was commissioned as a Naval Training
Station on 1 july 1911, received its first trainee two days
later, and was officially dedicated by President William
Howard Taft on that first recruit's graduation day, 28 Oc-
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
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
Women for the regular Navy were trained at Great
Lakes from 1948 to 1957, taking a ten-week WAVE training
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.
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
-provide the Department of the Navy with personnel
possessing an effective level of physical fitness
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
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
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
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
RECRUIT TRAINING COMMAND HEADQUARTERS AND CLASSROOMS
RECRUITS SPEND MANY HGURS
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.

Because of the closeness he feels to
his fellow recruits, it is difficult for a
recruit to "lose his company." 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.
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
The recruit curriculum taught consist
of: Overseas DiplomacyfMission Ele-
ment, Equal OpportunityfRace Relation
Education, Drug Abuse Control!Alcohol
Training. The recruits are taken through
many hours of the above instruction to
prepare them for entering and func-
tioning in the fleet.

Since 1775 the United States Navy has provided oppor-
tunity for sailors to worship. 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.

Of the various forms of recreation available, the two
most important to the recruits are probably on-base
liberty and receiving visitors. Navy Exchange operates
cafeterias, stores, and amusement centers to provide
snacks, necessities, and entertainment. The profit from
Navy Exchange provides Special Services with funds to
operate on-base recreational facilities such as bowling
alleys, TV lounges, libraries, recreation centers, and
movie theaters for off-duty enjoyment.

GMGI C. W. GROSS USN
EMC E. J. RAMIREZ, JR USN
. . .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.
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

The barracks is not only a place to
sleep and to stow clothes, but it is also the
most important classroom. Here, the
recruit learns by doing. The Company
Commander's lG's, the cleaning of the
barracks and the constant inspections all
serve but one purpose-to prepare him

All is not work in the barracks, for the

Demonstrating proper salute
The salute is symbolic of the traditions and
customs of the Navy. This is but one discipline
learned by the recruit as part of his physical and
mental orientation, to help him develop pride in his
personal conduct and military manner. He
becomes more aware of his role as a sailor-citizen
and of the Navy's role as part of the government
of the United States and the peacekeeping military
forces of the world.
