DEDICATION 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 pleasant, the exciting and the routine, the humorous and the gravely important moments spent at Recruit Training Command, Naval Training Center, Great Lake, Illinois. The keel is the backbone of a ship. The cruise book e 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.

Address all inquiries to Navy Exchange - The KEEL Building l3l2 Great Lakes, Illinois 60088 WELCOME ABOARD! Welcome to Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes. Illin- ois. The men entering Recruit Training Command 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 dur- ing basic training, each company competes with the other companies in the following areas: military smartness, precision in drill, smart seamanlike appear- ance, cleanliness of living spaces, physical training, scholastics, and, finally. departmental excellence which is the average of all phases of training. The success of each com- pany in these areas is indicated by the flags they will carry at their gradua- tion. 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 under- stand the need for team work and dependence upon one another. Over two hundred years ago, on October l3th I775, 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 profession- als who maintain and oper- ate the most modern and sophisticated ships and air- craft in the world. So, once again, we welcome you to Recruit Training Command. "RISE AND SHINE" SO WHAT'S NEXT 5f rmwi ASCARD ? W 5... H... 7h .g. ..

RELIGIOUS LIFE Since i775 the United States Navy has provided opportunity for sailors to worship. Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, continues this tradition. Various religious service's 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. RELIGIOUS FLAG RTC RELIGIOUS SERVICE 1 .

Competition flags consist of "5" flags awarded for scholastic achievement, Drill flags awarded for proficiency in drill, Star flags awarded for cleanliness and sharp military appearance, "A" and Olympic flags awarded for athletic superiority. uE" flags, or Efficiency flags, are awarded to companies with a high overall average in all categories combined and color company flag awarded to the company which has attained a mark of excellence above all other companies in its graduation group. Winning a flag is determined by a point structure, with 4000 points being a perfect score. All flags, except the "",E color company flag and Olympic, consist of three individual flags. A company can win one, two, or all three flags in a particular category, depending on their scores. These scores must be high enough to meet the requirements of MTD tMilitary Training Department; MTA lMilitary Training Assistano, or Division. If they meet the MTD, the company wins all three flags; the MTA, two flags, Divison, one flag. The "E" flags, which consist of two flags, are symbols of overall excellence in all categories. These are won by obtaining an average score of 3740 or higher; if the score is below this and above 3625 a company wins one "E" flag. The COEOR COMPANY FLAGS Olympic flag is awarded to the company, in the graduation grOup, with the highest accumulation of points in all athletic events during a given week.

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 l25,000 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. 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 I,000 buildings was able to handle a peak on-board count of 67,000 recruits as Great Lakes trained almost l,000,000 men for the fleet. At one point, the demand for more men was so great training curriculum was a highly-accelerated three weeks. The normal post-war recruit population has been I0,000 with significant increases during the Korean and Vietnam conflicts. Women for the regular Navy were trained at Great Lakes from I948 to I957, taking a ten-week WAVE training course. An advanced training period of twelve days was implemented 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 punishment 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: a effect a smooth transition from civilian to NaVy life a foster patriotic behavior - affirm the dignity of the individual - encourage high standards of personal responsibility. conduct, manners, and morals a create a desire for self-improvement and advancement - provide the recruit with knowledge and skills which are basic to all naval personnel - 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 countryls 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, 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 us; our 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. adversities MAINTENANCE AND SUPPORT TRAINING Maintenance and Support Training is devoted to instruction and practical experience in work normally encoun- tered aboard ship. Though most recruits assist in the messing of the crew, others perform housekeeping chores; watchstanding and mes- senger duties.

HOTMER THE COMPANY 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 Recruit Training Com- mand. 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 respbnsibility 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 '30 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 Navyis professional 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 I 41 4 4 COMPANY 83-225 BARRACKS LIFE One of the more important lessons the recruit learns during boot camp is how to live with others in a military organiza- tion. Life nd 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. Division Entrance d Relieving The Watch sentry An The Log EXHXWQSRM Inspection Of The Watch L3 BARRACKS LIFE 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 IG's, 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.

To stress the essential value of military drill, 1. Military Training Dept., 2. Military Training Assistant, and 3. Division Driil Flags are awarded on a competitive basis among recruit companies. This gives the recruit a tangible incentive to progress from an unsure boot to part of a precise military unit by learning the importance of instantaneous response to orders and the absolute necessity of teamwork with his shipmates. From military drili, then, the recruit learns the Navyis plan of operation in peace or war: knowledgeable, coordinated, and immediate action.

In May of l974, the Chief of Naval Operations further directed modification to the Human Goals Plan to include the minimum training standards necessary to support Phase II of the Navy's Race Relations Program to meet Fleet requirements at the recruit accession point level. To fulfill this requirement, a pilot program was instituted at Recruit Training Command in I974 and Human Resource Management Division was established under the auspices of the Technical Training Departments. In l976, upon completion of an extensive review period, the curriculum established was approved as a viable portion of the recruit accession program and incorporated permanently at that time. At the recruit accession point level, the following curriculum is offered to the newest members of the Navy family: Attitude Identification, Racism and Sexism, The Navy's Equal Opportunity Program, The Communications Process, The "One Navy" Concept, Drugs and Alcohol, Decision Making and Time Management, Cultural Adjustment, and Military Rights and Responsibilities consisting of seventeen periods of instruction and indoctrination. In addition to the recruit accession curriculum, Human Resource Management Division also provides similar but more indepth curriculum to Prospective Company Commanders, both officer and enlisted staff personnel, and other service veterans iOSVETSI entering the Navy for the first time. Approximately l5 instructorsko-facilitators isenior petty officersi constitute the Human Resource Management Division. All instructorsko- facilitators are required to have satisfactorily completed 3 l2 week Human Rescurce Management course of instruction. ASMOiS tAssignment Memorandum Ordersi 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 disciplinary reasons, it is more likely that a recruit is re-assigned to a later e formed company because of failed tests or a need for remedial reading work. Or, he might be hospitalized due to illness or an accident. It is not easy for a recruit to leave his friends in his original company; but is 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. PREPARING FOR PT RUNNING THE 2V4 MILES PHYSICAL TRAINING Throughout the demanding academic and technical training curriculum required of recruits undergoing train- ing, one phase of equal importance in the transformation from civilian life to Navy life is physical conditioning. Recruits undergo 29 physical training periods with scheduled aerobic progress tests to measure their accomplishments in increased stamina and endurance. Each aerobic test begins with a series of warm-up stretching exercises, progressively difficult calisthenics and ending with a measured run in company formation of increasing distances commensurate with their week of training. The thrill of victory is heightened by the realization that the final physical training test, 0V4 miles in '8 minutesi signals the homeward bound leg of recruit training.

The rewards, no Olympic gold medals, but the self satisfac- tion of accomplishment through teamwork. SWIMMING ROPE CLIMB BROAD JUMP TUG OF WAR DAMAGE CONTROL AND FIREFIGHTING The mission of the Damage Control Training Divison is to acquaint each recruit with the basic principles of extinguishing shipboard fires and controlling any storm or battle damage which his fighting unit may sustain. Damage centrol training is accomplished both in the classroom and in structures designed to simulate a naval warship. Controlled oil fires are ignited in the "ships", and it is the task of the damage control team to actually enter the structure and extinguish the flames. All such training is conducted only under the strict supervision of a trained and experienced petty officer. Instruction is also given on seIf-protection against nuclear, biological and chemical warfare. As part of this training, each recruit puts on a gas mask and passes through a chamber filled with a harmless but obnoxious gas. While in the chamber he removes his gas mask briefly for a dramatic demonstration of the protection it provides. Confidence is instilled in the recruit as a result of the damage control and firefighting instruction. Armed with training and the knowledge that shipboard fires can be extinguished and damage corrected, the Navyman may save many lives and keep his fighting unit afloat should disaster strike.

Safety precautions are especially stressed to each recruit. During classroom periods, the men are taught the nomenclature and how to field strip and reassemble the colt 45.
