1967 Great Lakes Navy Boot Camp Graduation Books

In the course of his training in 1967, the recruit receives both a basic indoctrination in the many skills he will need as a Bluejacket and a broad picture of the entire Navy, its history, traditions, and customs.

Physical training, inoculation against diseases, and training in first aid, physical hygiene, and related subjects form another major part of the recruit training program. Coupled with wholesome food and the active but healthful environment of the training camps, this program results in a noticeable improvement in the physical condition of most recruits.

A sharp break between civilian and Navy life, recruit training is the basic element in any man's time in the Naval service. It is the keel of a career in your Navy.
