GRADUATION

The graduation review is the climax of training for the recruits. Under the leadership of fellow recruits, the graduates display their newly learned abilities in military drill and military bearing in the Navy's traditional pomp and ceremony, not only to the reviewing officials but also to relatives and friends who are able to attend.

The special recruit units—the States' Flags Company, the Drum and Bugle Corps, the Drill Team, and the Bluejackets Choir, composed of and commanded by only recruits in training —help to create a vivid and exciting picture that will last in the recruit's memory for the rest of his life.
