PROUD POSSESSOR OF THE COMPASS

As you have read through this book, I am sure you have captured some pride in the accomplishment of a fine young American.

He is now in the second phase of his naval career, a graduate of basic recruit training.

While under my command many fine ideals and traditions of the Naval Service have been made a part of his training. The purpose of this training can best be expressed in one word "GROWTH”:

Growth in knowledge and understanding of the Naval Service; growth in faith and belief in the moral and spiritual values of life; growth in confidence and capacity to serve God, Country and Self.

By successfully completing his basic training, he has demonstrated the fact that the opportunity for individual achievement is a fundamental right and responsibility of citizenship.

I sincerely hope that he will continue to grow and to believe in the value of individual improvement and thereby take advantage of the many opportunities available in the Naval Service.

Faithfully yours,
W. J. CATLETT, JR.
Captain, U. S. Navy Commanding
