Hadley completes Navy basic training
Navy Seaman Recruit Brandon Hadley, son of Tifenne N. and William E. Hadley of Walthourville, recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command in Great Lakes, Ill.
Hadley, a 2010 graduate of Long County High School, completed a variety of training during the eight-week program, including classroom study and practical instruction on naval customs; first aid; firefighting; water safety and survival; and shipboard and aircraft safety. An emphasis also was placed on physical fitness.
The capstone event of boot camp is “Battle Stations.” This exercise gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the fleet. “Battle Stations” is designed to galvanize the basic warrior attributes of sacrifice, dedication, teamwork and endurance in each recruit through the practical application of basic Navy skills and the core values of honor, courage and commitment. It is designed to take into account what it means to be a sailor.
