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
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.
