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 serious moments spent at Recruit Training
Command, Naval Training Center, Great Lake's, Illinois.
The keel is the backbone of a ship. The 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 ABO RD.
Welcome to Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes.
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
l As a motivating factor during basic training, each
company competes with the other companies in the
4 following areas: military smartness, precision in drill,
, smart seamanlike appearance, cleanliness of living spaces,
3 physical training, scholastics, and, finally, departmental
excellence which is the average of all phases of training.
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 l3th l775, 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

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 in the
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.

Throughout training each recruit company
competes in its graduation group of competition
flags. 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. "E" 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 fMilitary Training Departmentj, MTA CMiIitary
Training Assistantj, or Division. lf they meet the
MTD, the company wins all three flags, the MTA, two
flags, Division, 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
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.

COMMAND - GREAT LAKES
Great Lakes was commissioned as a Naval Training
Station on I July l9Il, received its first trainee two days
later, and was officially dedicated by President William
Howard Taft on that first recruit's graduation day, 28
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 Sw recruits undergoing sixteen weeks of
More than DRM 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 Il 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 LHB 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 l0,000
with significant increases during the Korean and Vietnam
Women for the regular Navy were trained at Great
Lakes from l948 to I957, taking a ten-week WAVE training
An advanced training period of four weeks 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 peacetimes conditions is made up of
thirty-one officers and 600 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.
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
- 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,
discipline, 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 responsibilities sober ust 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 been

ln September of l973, the Chief of Naval Operations established and
developed the Navy's Human Goals Education Program Training Plan for
the entire Navy community. ln 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 ll 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 l974 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.
ln 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 COSVETSD entering the Navy for
the first time.
Approximately I5 instructorsfco-facilitators Qsenior petty officersj
constitute the Human Resource Management Division. All instructorsfco-
facilitators are required to have satisfactorily completed a I2 week Human
Resource Management course of instruction.

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 -
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 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

PREPARING FOR PT
RUNNING THE IM MILES
Throughout the demanding academic and
technical training curriculum required of
recruits undergoing training, 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 accomplish-
ments 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, 2M miles in I8 min-
utesj signals the homeward bound leg of re-

The mission of the Damage Control Training
Division 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 control 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
Instruction is also given on self-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
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 extin-
guished and damage corrected, the Navyman
may save many lives and keep his fighting unit
afloat should disaster strike.

recruits in range safety precautions and the use
of small arms. 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

The graduation review is the
climax of training for the recruits
Under the leadership of fellow
recruits, the graduates display their
newly learned abilities in military
drill and military bearing in the
Navy's traditional pomp and cer
emony, not only to the reviewing
officials but also to relatives and
friends who are visitors.
The special recruit units - the
State Flags Company, the Drum and
Bugle Corps, the Drill Team, and the
Bluejacket Choir, composed of and
commanded by recruits in training
- help to create a vivid and exciting
picture that will last in the recruit s
memory for the rest of his life.

. . . 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-
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 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
One of the more important lessons
the recruit learns during boot camp is how
to live with others in a military organiza-
tion. 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

Inspection Of The Watch
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 constantinspechons aH
serve but one purpose-to prepare him

All is not work in the barracks, for the
recruit learns the need for fellowship and
relaxation. Mail call is one of his most
precious moments, and the time he takes
to write home is time well spent.

He will probably never carry a rifle after he leaves boot
camp, but much of a recruit sailor's time is spent learning
the fundamentals of military drill, the manual of arms,
marching, and physical drill under arms.
To stress the essential value of military drill, 1. Military
Training Dept., 2. Military Training Assistant, and 3. Division
Drill 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 drill, then, the recruit learns the Navy's
plan of operation in peace or war: knowledgeable,
coordinated, and immediate action.
