NAVAL TRAINING CENTER Son Diego, California OUNTLESS GENERATIONS of seafaring men have come to regard the anchor as a symbol of their profession and a mark of security to the ships on which they serve. By the Romans the anchor was re- garded as a symbol of wealth and commerce, while the Greeks gave to it the significance of hope and steadiness, a meaning that persists in religion and heraldry today. The symbolism of the Greeks was carried on by the early Christians with a meaning of steadfastness, hope and salvation. Here, too, in recruit training, the anchor has special significance, not only as the symbol of the recruit's new life and surroundings but also as the steadfast symbol of the security in his new career that his recruit training will give him. In the pages that follow, the daily life of a recruit is traced from his initial arrival at the Naval Training Center until his graduation. 'I'I1I! .A.K'CD'I1CJIEl.. TGRY T HE NAVAL TRAINING CENTER, San Diego, had its inception in 1916 when Mr. William Kettner, Congressman from the Eleventh Congressional District of California and spokesman for the San Diego Chamber of Commerce, interested the Honorable Franklin D. Roosevelt, then Assistant Secretary of the Navy, in estab- lishing a naval training activity on the shores of San Diego Bay. Due to the Nation's entry into World War I, further development of this plan was postponed until 1919, when Congress authorized acceptance by the Navy of the present site of the Training Center..The original grant consisted of 135 acres of highland donated by the San Diego Cham- ber of Commerce and 142 acres of tideland given by the City of San Diego. Construction work began in 1921, and on 1 June 1923 the U.S. Naval Training Station, San Diego, was placed in commission under the command of Captain flater Rear AdmiralJDavid F. Sellers,U.S. Navy. At the time of its commissioning in 1923 the station bore little resemblance to its present size or arrangement. At that time Camp Paul Jones housed the entire popula- f tion of the station and the maximum recruit strength was l,500. The period of recruit training was then sixteen weeks.The shore line of San Diego Bay extended consider- ably further inland than at present, and the land now oc- cupied by Preble Field, the North Athletic Area and Camp Farragut was entirely under water. The recruit parade ground was located on the present site ofthe Public Works garage. During the 1920's the Recruit Receiving and Outgoing Units were housed in the Detention Unit, known as Camp Ingram, which consisted of a group of walled tents adjacent to the south boundary of Camp Paul Jones. Until Camp Lawrence was completed in 1936, re- cruits spent their first three weeks of training under canvas in this Detention Unit. In 1939 a construction program was commenced which within three years was to increase the capacity of the station four-fold. This expansion went hand in glove with a large scale program of harbor improvements by means of which the channel and anchorages in San Diego Bay were deepened and 130 acres of filled land were add- ed tothe eastern boundaries ofthe station. By 1941 Camp Luce had been completed, and the construction ofCamps Mahan, Decatur, and Farragut was already well under way when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. Virtually all this construction work was completed by September, 1942, when the capacity ofthe station had reached it war- time peak of 33,000 men, 25,000 of whom were recruits. The period of recruit training during World War II varied between three weeks and seven weeks. In April, 1944, the Secretary of the Navy changed the status of the Training Station to that ofa group command and redesignated it the U. S. Naval Training Center, San Diego. Under the Center Commander were established three subordinate commands: The Recruit Training Com- mand,The Service School Command and the Administra- tive Command. The years immediately following World War II saw a considerable reduction in population of the Training Cen- ter despite a post-war expansion of the Service Schools, and by the end of 1949 the population of the Center had dropped to a twenty-year low of 5,800 men. Six months later,when the Communists invaded the Republic of Korea, an immediate expansion of all Naval training activities took place and by September of 1950 the Center was again operating at nearly full capacity. During the early months of the Korean conflict it be- came apparent that the demand for trained personnel in continued the rapidly growing Pacific Fleet would require further expansion of this training center. Accordingly steps were taken by the Navy Department to reactivate Camp Elliott, formerly a World War ll Marine Corps training camp which is located ten miles north of San Diego on Kearny Mesa. On I5 January 1951 Camp Elliott was placed in commission as Elliott Annex of the Naval Training Cen- ter forthe purpose of conducting the primary phases ofre- cruit training. ln March, 1953, in line with the planned re- duction in size ofthe Navy, training at Elliott Annex was discontinued and it was placed in an inactive status. Dur- ing its two years of operation, over 150,000 recruits re- ceived training there. Late in 1952 projects were approved to convert some recruit barracks into classrooms and to extend training facilities by construction of a permanent recruit camp on the undeveloped Training Center land lying to the south and east of the estuary. The six converted barracks went into service as recruit classrooms in April. 1953, and con- struction work on the new camp was completed in 1955. ln late 1964 a new school to train recruits in the vita function of fire-fighting was opened at Carroll Canyon some 15 miles north east of San Diego. With the com pletion ofthis project the Naval Training Center filled ou to its present boundaries of 535 acres. In late 1965, the demand for trained Navy men to mai the additional ships and overseas billets, required to mee the Vietnam crisis, brought the on-board population to 1 record of over 18.000 recruits, the highest since Korea. A the same time, a military construction program got under way with the foundation of a new 8,000-man mess hal being laid adjacent to Bainbridge Court. ln addition, ai ambitious five-year program was formalized for the con struction of modern barracks, TV classrooms and ad ministration facilities. The face lifting of the Recrui Training Command is expected to be completed by the early l970's. In the furtherance of its mission of supplying traineo naval personnel to the fleets and ships ofthe United Statef Navy, each of the three subordinate commands of thc- s"' 'll' 3. 7124, Q, F 1 .Q I ' .5 4' fi 5 " ll. i ' I tif, ,,,l, .i I ,T,,- - WQNN YTPL, K mwah' . 1' 'ti 5 V ' ,. p it -,Q , 'G A , " ' ' ,5.,,MW,i.i,: wff,f Y- tlifgi5ptf.Aa,l,r'r',4j v x ., Hfrlfwiayl M ,WW55,17iemriwggygtitgggfgvlil' fly..

K V continued Naval Training Center has important roles to fill. The Administrative Command has the responsibility of conducting most of the Center's administrative business and furnishing a wide range of services necessary to the daily life of the large community which the Center has be- come.The Administrative Command has the responsibility of maintaining the Center's buildings and grounds, and through its facilities all personnel on the Center are housed, fed, clothed and paid, and receive their medical and dental care. The Administrative Command also pro- vides such other community services as recreational and Navy Exchange facilities: communications, postal and transportation servicesg and police and fire protection. Under the Service School Command are grouped more than twenty Navy Schools in which recruits as well as men from the fleet receive training in the specialized duties of certain ratings. Most of these are Class "AM schools, where non-rated men learn the skills and information necessary to them to perform a specific petty officer rat- ing.Among these schools are those which train fire control technicians, electricians mates, radiomen, yeomen, com- missarymen and stewards. Other schools teach specialized skills such as motion picture operation, teletype mainte- nance and stenography. The present capacity of the Serv- ice Schools is about 5,000 men. Now in its Fiftieth year of service to the Navy, the Naval Training Center, San Diego, faces with confidence the challenges of an unsettled world. CAPTAIN A. G.

PROCESSIN T THE RECEIVING and Outfitting Unit, better known as "R and O," the recruit receives his first intro- duction to recruit training. Here he is given thorough medi- cal and dental examinations, takes various mental tests and is issued his outfit of Navy uniforms and clothing. Soon after his arrival he and some seventy other young men are assigned to their recruit company. As a newly formed company they are "welcomed aboard" by an officer representative of the Commanding Officer and are placed under the charge of an experienced senior petty officer who will be their company commander throughout their period of recruit training. Each company commander is a care- fully selected, thoroughly experienced career Navy petty of- ficer of demonstrated leadership ability who has received special training in working with recruits. ln his new company the recruit will meet young men from all walks of life and sections of the country. From these men who will be his "shipmates" for the coming weeks, he may form life long friendships. One of the most important steps in the "in processing" Stage is the administration of the Navy's General Classifi- cation Test. The results of these tests together with a later meeting with a trained classification interviewer will lead to the selection of a career pattern in the Navy, and to special schooling after his graduation from recruit training. Having donned his new Navy uniform and shipped his civilian clothes home, the new recruit is now ready to move to the Primary Training Regiment where his company will "go on schedule."

PHYSICAL TR ININ O BE OF MAXIMUM effective use to himself and to the Navy a man must be in top physical condition, must know how to care for his body and must be able to survive in the water at sea. To the end that all navy men may meet these demands of naval service, they participate in a physical training program that involves strenuous physical training program that involves strenuous physical exertion, instruc- tion in swimming and sea survival,and instruction in first aid, lifesaving and personal hygiene. When they report for duty some recruits are soft, some are overweight, and some are underweight. To build some up and trim others down, and to condition all for the rigors of life at sea, a well-planned physical training program is inte- grated with other phases of training: military drill, an active outdoor life, good food, good living habits.These physical training activities emphasize correct posture and muscular coordination and strive to develop a respect for authority 1 and habits of instantaneous response to commands. All menaparticularly sailors whose life will be the sea- must know how to swim, how to use life jackets and, if no jacket is available, how to use clothing as a flotation device. Many hours are spent in the swimming pools. Non-swimmers are taught to swim, qualified swimmers improve their ability and all recruits learn sea survival and water safety. Stressed constantly in the Physical Training Program is personal cleanliness and the importance of health to the indi- vidual and to the Navy. A knowledge of the medical and dental services available, the prevention of infections, correct eating habits, and the care of feet, mouth, and teeth is pro- vided by competent medical instructors. The recruit also re- ceives first aid instruction so that he will know how to care for himself or for his injured shipmates under circumstances where immediate medical attention is not available.

In Ordnance Training, the recruit learns some of the duties performed on board ship by g'The Man Behind the Gunf' Ordnance and Gunnery training begins with instruction in the use of small arms. At the snapping-in range, under the guidance of experienced rifle range coaches, the recruit learns how to load and sight a rifle, how to adjust the sling, and how to fire the weapon from the several positions. Later he will spend a day at the indoor rit1e range firing "for record." I-Ie will also be instructed in the use of the serv- ice pistol and Carbine and will witness firings of the Brown- ing automatic rifle and the Thompson sub-machine gun. Throughout, the safe use of weapons is stressed in in- struction and rigidly enforced on the firing line. In advanced training the recruit receives an introduction to the larger weapons he will see on board ship and learns some of the principles of their operation. Although he will not witness the actual firing of these shipboard weapons until he goes to sea, he receives practical experience in sighting and loading a five-inch gun, using dummy am- munition. He is shown the various types of ammunition he will encounter and handle on board ship and learns the necessity for strictly observing the safety precautions which are necessary for his own safety and that of his shzipmates.

Although some seamanship skills can be mastered only from long expe- rience at sea, the foundations upon which these skills are based form an important part of recruit training. Emphasis here is placed upon teaching the recruit the language of the sea and the names and uses ofthe tools of his new trade. Among the subjects taught to the recruit are marlinspike seamanship and knot tying, steering and sounding, anchoring and mooring, and the recognition of various types of ships, their characteristics and structures. He learns the principles of shipboard organization and something of the role he will later play as a member of his ship's company. He receives practical L instruction in the use of the sound-powered telephones by which personnel stationed in various parts of a ship may com- municate with each other. To facilitate practical demonstrations of these subjects the RECRUIT, a scale model of a destroyer escort, was construc- ted on shore for use by recruits. On board this landlocked ship practical exercises are held in stationing personnel for getting underway and anchoring, the handling of mooring lines, the manning ofwatch and battle stations. By the time he completes recruit training the recruit will have learned many of the fundamentals of seamanship which will stand him in good stead on board ship.

The marching, the facing, the manual of arms at first seem difficult beyond all reason, but after a week's practice, confidence begins to ap- pear and by the end ofprimary training the company has be- come a sharp appearing unit. Even though the navy man seldom carries a rifle or marches in a military unit after he completes his recruit train- ing, there is a definite and important place in recruit training for military drill,with and without arms. The military control of the company is gained and maintained through constant drilling. Leaders are discovered and developed, and others learn in- stantaneous response to command. All develop coordination 1 'H .gy 1 of mind and body, and an "esprit de corps" grows within the company. Together with physical training, military drill is a part of the physical conditioning or 'ghardening up" process for the recruit. But most of all, military drill teaches the re- cruit the importance of implicit obedience to orders and the importance of the individual in a military group, whether he be in a marching unit, on a gun crew, in the fire room, or on the bridge. Inspections will always be an important matter in the life of a man in the Navy. In recruit training the vigorous com- petition maintained between the recruit companies is based largely on a series of regular inspections which serve the double purpose ofteaching him the requirements of military life while comparing his performance and that of his unit with the performance of others in training with him. mls., REHEARSAL 1 ,.,,T.,..f PARADE PRACTICE f J X! us , PERSGNNEL INSPECTION - Guidon S lx Q 2' M ililury Efficiency Award Academic Excellence Award AWARD Athletic Excellence Award xx "N PRESENTATIONS in Regimental Award Over All Academic'Award Flag Weekly Brigade Award X V9 YQ Q, Competitive Sports Award Meritorious Advancement S, RY TRAlNlN5 Mnmlnrricra 'uv FARRAGUT CGURT PREPARING FOR PARADE ' '14-1 'iq' Q SIL DRILL DIVISIO Comprised of young men currently undergoing regular re- cruit training, Drill Division is made up of four special per- forming units: the Drum and Bugle Corps, Fifty-State Flag Team, Bluejacket Choir and Brigade Staffs. Selected during their first day at Recruit Training Com- mand from among many volunteers, the future members of these units complete all phases of Basic Military and Aca- demic Training while perfecting their marching and musical talents. lt is a tribute to the enthusiasm and ability of these young men and their instructors that they have gained a wide- lv 1 E ,W s l spread reputation for the excellence of their musical and marching performance. The Drum and Bugle Corps, perhaps the"best known of these units, along with the Fifty-State Flag Team, provides entertainment at numerous sporting events, civic affairs and parades in and around the San Diego and Southern California area. The Corps and the Flag Team are quite proud of their record of having never achieved less than a second place award when performing in competition with other civilian and military units. ,, V, i 1 aa t. gl 3 Q I lil " W"1nf--1' r . 1?

Retaining their basic religious function, the Choir has branched out into many other musical areas. Appearances by the Choir at various civic functions, on television and at numerous military ceremonies provide not only entertain- ment but also excellent public relations for the Navy. While their outside committments are numerous, the pri- mary reason for the existence of these special units is to pro- vide entertainment and leadership for the weekly recruit brigade review. Every Friday afternoon prior to the review, The Drum and Bugle Corps, Bluejacket Choir and Fifty- E 1. 'D State Flag Team perform in a most impressive and enter- taining display of their talents for parents and friends of graduating recruits. Once on the parade field, it is the fourth of our special units, the Brigade, Regimental and Battalion Staffs who take charge of the review. With the Naval Train- ing Center Band fthe only non-recruit unit on the fieldl, it is the responsibility of the Staffs to lead the review from the time the companies mass on the field through the Manual of Arms, Officer's Center, and the final "Pass in Review". This truly impressive group of fine and talented young men, will shortly leave these special units to join the Navy's finest.

The messing of the crew, all the house- keeping chores, and the watch standing must be performed by those assigned to the unit. Throughout his naval career, re- gardless of his rate or rating, each man is in some way con- cerned with these service duties to which the recruit is intro- duced during service week. ln any unit, men in the lower rates will usually perform the "chores" and those in the higher rates will supervise themg all must stand watchesg and all must live together in the same ship. The fourth week of recruit training is devoted to instruction and practical experience in Ship's Work Training, For six weeks of his 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 important tasks for his shipmates in recruit training. Although the fourth week is specifically designated for training in these service duties, much of his training continues throughout the entire training period. Every messenger or sentry watch and every cleaning detail is a part ofthe recruit's training in the problems of community living. In the Recruit Training Command it is believed that the things a recruit must learn in ship's work training can best be taught by actually doing them, for experience is the greatest teacher ofall. -.W -uv., VMS.

FIELD DAY :FV BARRACKS LIFE P ROBABLY THE MOST IMPORTANT thing that a recruit must learn during his recruit training is how to live with others in a military organization. Life and living conditions in the Navy differ so greatly from anything the young man has known in civilian life that teaching him to live in close quarters as a member of a military group be- comes one ofthe major missions of recruit training. At the Training Center his barracks is the recruit's "home," It is in his barracks that he spends an appreciable portion of his time in training. Here he establishes himself -in a sense, drops his anchor-for the weeks in which he will be experiencing the transition from civilian to mili- tary life. The ,barracks is not only a place for the recruit to sleepg it is his most important classroom. Here he "learns by doing." He learns to live with others and to take care of himself and his belongings. The scrubbing of his clothing, the cleaning of his barracks, and the constant inspections all serve but one purposeg to prepare him for a successful life during the remainder of his tour in the Navy. And it is not all work, for the recruit must also learn the need of a Navy man for the companionship of his fellows, for mail from home, and for amusement and relaxation. He should also develop the habits of writing letters and budget- ing his spare time. These things he learns in his barracks life at the Training Center. ,.v""'le -r xxx i lVlailCallY BARRACKS ROUTINE 1 .rx f if , I ff I i -AQ: 6 ' ,T,., , P A, A , Q' gi ,+. 5? 1 3 U 11 Y Q4 C' ir , 1 'E' 5-,f:5LH4:.. 7 ' A ' ff. :i1.3r.fL A X ' Ai b iw' ,fgsgg w.

Instead, he is given every oppor- tunity and encouragement to maintain and strengthen his religious interests. Soon after his arrival, the recruit is given an opportunity to talk to a chaplain of his own faith, who will acquaint him with the chaplain's role in the command and will explain the reli- gious programs which will be available to him during recruit training. Regular divine services are conducted by chaplains of all faiths, thus giving each man an opportunity to worship in ac- cordance with his religious background.Voluntary classes of religious instruction are held regularly for the benefit of re- cruits who desire to prepare themselves for church member- ship. The chaplains cooperate closely with the local churches to facilitate membership or attendance at services in those churches. Character guidance talks given by the chaplains are an inte- gral part of recruit training. These are designed to foster the growth of moral responsibility, spiritual values and strong self-discipline within the recruit. Recruits are encouraged to participate in the religious life of the station by joining the choir or providing musical accom- paniment at divine services. In time of distress or personal emergency, the chaplains stand ready to give advice and counsel, and the recruit is en- couraged to take his personal problems to a chaplain of his choice at any time. The chaplains also maintain close contact with the Navy Relief Society and The American Red Cross in obtaining financial and other assistance to those in need.

Through- out his life in the Navy, many and varied recreation facilities and opportunities will be available to him, but he himself must learn how to make the best and most worthwhile use of these opportunities. During his first weeks of training the recruit has little or no time to spare from his daily routine for recreation. In order to bring him through the loneliness and sharp readjust- ment to life in his new environment, a special effort is made to keep each recruit fully occupied throughout each day of primary training, and he therefore has little time or inclina- tion for the recreational opportunities which lie ahead of him. Liberty to visit San Diego is not granted until after the final week oftraining. The recreational facilities ofthe Training Center are many and varied. In the recreation buildings in the recruit areas there are excellent libraries, game rooms, television lounges, billiard rooms and bowling alleys. Movies are available on certain evenings and on week-ends. The facilities ofthe Navy Exchange store, soda fountain and snack bar afford him op- portunities to purchase his needs conveniently and at reason- able cost. An attended telephone exchange makes it easy for the recruit to call any place in the country in an emergency, or just to hear familiar voices from home. Athletics also play a part in the recreation program. Inter- company softball, baseball and volleyball games afford a diversion from the daily routine, and spectator interest in varsity athletics is often keen. During his off hours the re- cruit may also use one of the swimming pools or play golf, tennis or handball. Recruit boxing and wrestling bouts and Star oflndi impromptu entertainment acts afford interest at periodic Re- cruit Smokers. Commencing his final week of training, each recruit who has earned the privilege is granted liberty on two days after his graduation parade. During his liberty hours the recruit is "on his own" to select his own form of recreation, but by group indoctrination he is reminded that he has an obliga- tion to the uniform he is wearing to conduct himself in a manner which will bring credit to himself, his organization and his Navy. The San Diego recruit is particularly fortunate in being stationed in a city which has so many worthwhile attractions for its visitors. Fine beaches are at hand for those who wish to relax on the sand or swim in the surf, and the amusement park at Mission Beach is a popular attraction. Balboa Park, with its excellent zoo and other scenic and recreational at- tractions, is always popular with the recruit and man-of- warsman alike. The shopping and amusement facilities of down-town San Diego also attract many Navy men on liberty. The USO and Armed Services YMCA, together with local churches and community organizations all do their part to help the serviceman enjoy his liberty in San Diego. The home hospitality programs the "Under 21" dances and the Java Club offer pleasant memories of recruit liberties while in San Diego. For families and relatives who may have occasion to come to the Training Center, the Reception Center affords con- venient and attractive surroundings for visiting or for taking a picnic lunch .M fl Z.
