Navy Boot Camp Bainbridge The Compass Yearbooks

The Main Gate at USNTC Bainbridge, Maryland ca 1960.

RTC Graduation Yearbooks from The US Naval Training Center in Bainbridge, MD from the USNTC Collection of the Gjenvick-Gjønvik Archives.

The U. S. Naval Training Center, Bainbridge, Maryland, first came into being when the President of the United States, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, approved the site and the purchase of the land and buildings from the Jacob Tome Institute in early 1942.

This property, consisting of about 330 acres with buildings of the Tome School for boys located thereon, was enlarged by the purchase of adjacent parcels of land, and the construction of over 500 additional buildings, which brought the total area of Bainbridge to 1,132 acres.

Bainbridge is located on high rolling land beginning at the top of an escarpment overlooking the small river town of Port Deposit, Maryland, on the northeast bank of the Susquehanna River. The reservation is 35 miles northeast of Baltimore, between U. S. Routes I and 40, and approximately 75 miles from Washington and Philadelphia.

The activity, being located near the center of the Atlantic Seaboard, is under the military command and coordination control of the Commandant, FIFTH Naval District, whose headquarters are in Norfolk, Virginia.
