Boot Camp. We’re sure you’ve heard of it, and you’ve probably even heard stories about what goes on there, but what exactly should you expect? It’s important to be fully prepared, so we’re here to help you become just that. So what exactly is Boot Camp? Well, first and foremost it’s known as R-T-C, Recruit Training Command, and it’s definitely not to be taken lightly. Boot Camp develops the mental and physical capacity of new recruits, so that the Fleet is supplied with top-quality, trained Sailors. Now, what should you expect there? Well, because of the command staff’s hard work, R-T-C is a place where recruits are involved in carrying out activities from day one all the way through graduation. Upon arrival, recruits are formed into divisions and spend the first week completing processing. This involves lots of paperwork, medical and dental exams, haircuts and inoculations. From then on, recruits are molded into Sailors. You’ll be taught the Navy’s core traditions. The workload is heavy but the goal is simple: Prepare recruits to the fullest. In addition to classroom instruction, recruits spend time learning the fundamentals of small arms marksmanship, seamanship, water survival, line handling and firefighting. You can also earn recognition flags at Boot Camp. A few ways to receive these are through academic excellence, military drills, cleanliness and athletics. At the end of training, recruits enter their final evaluation – Battle Stations 21. Here, they go through 24 hours of Navy simulations aboard a replica ship. Upon completion, they receive a Navy ball cap to replace their recruit ball cap. This is known as the Capping Ceremony, and it indicates their new status as Sailors in the Navy.
