RECRUIT TRAINING COMMAND
U. S. NAVAL TRAINING CENTER
BAINBRIDGE, MARYLAND

  • REAR ADMIRAL R. O. DAVIS, USN - Commandant, Fifth Naval District
  • CAPTAIN C. A. FINES, USN - Commander, Naval Training Center
  • CAPTAIN F. WOLSIEFFER, USN - Commanding Officer, Recruit Training Command

The U. S. Naval Training Center, Bainbridge, Maryland, one of the Navy's largest training establishments, welcomes you to a weekly Recruit Graduation Review. The review—conducted entirely by recruits none of whom have been in the Navy for more than ten weeks—demonstrates the self-reliance of the individual, as well as the team work of a group, attained through the mediums of naval indoctrination and military drill during the period of basic training at this command.

As several companies of recruits complete basic training each week, the review is considered to be a graduation exercise. Approximately one-third of all graduating recruits are transferred to naval schools throughout the country for specialized training; the remainder are ordered to naval ships and stations around the world to take up their duties as GUARDIANS OF OUR NATION'S PEACE.

You may well be proud of these recruits. Your NAVY and your NATION are proud of them. They have answered the call of DUTY TO COUNTRY to serve in the UNITED STATES NAVY as DEFENDERS OF FREEDOM.
