Navy Boot Camp San Diego Yearbooks - The Anchor 1976-1991

USNTC - San Diego - The Anchor Yearbooks Archives

Commissioned in 1923, the recruit training was limited until 1942, when the Station was operating at a capacity of 33,000 men (25,000 Recruits). During WWII, the training period ranged from three to seven weeks.

The Anchor was published for each graduating class at the San Diego Recruit Training Command and provided a record of the training, names and portraits of the graduating class and the portraits of the Commanders of the Company and regiment.

Each book represents a basic training yearbook for that Company at the United States Naval Training Center, San Diego, California covering everthing from the first day to graduation.

In a typical ANCHOR YEARBOOK, the daily life of a recruit is traced from their initial arrival at the Naval Training Center until their graduation.

Most books contain a Table of Contents along with hundreds of photographs covering topics such as: History; Recruit Training Command; In Processing; Clothing Issue; General Classification Test; Physical Examination; Primary Training; Physical Training; Obstacle Course; Swim Test; Water Survival Class; Abandon Ship Drill; Ordnance and Gunnery; Rifle Instruction; Firing Positions; Seamanship; Ground Tackle; Marin Spike Seamanship; Ship Board Activities; Damage Control; Preliminary Instruction; Compartment Fire; Fire Fighting Equipment; Open Tank; Military Training; Rehearsal; Personnel Inspection; Farragut Court Preparing For Parade; Drill Division; Drum And Bugle Corps; Color Guard; Service Week; Food Preparation; Chow Line: Food Serving; Scullery; Field Day; Barracks Life; Barracks Routine; Leisure Time; Religious Life; Recreation; San Diego Zoo; Sea World; Visitors; Captains Meritorious Mast; Graduation Review; Recruit Leave; Departures plus various other photographs.
