Navy Seaman Chad N. Myers, son of Karen and Carl Myers of Fort Wayne, Indiana and Navy Seaman Mark C. McHenry, Fort Wayne, Indiana, recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Illinois.

During the eight-week program, Myers and McHenry completed a variety of training, which included classroom study and practical instruction on naval customs, first aid, firefighting, water safety and survival, and shipboard and aircraft safety. An emphasis was also 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. Its distinctly ”Navy” flavor was designed to take into account what it means to be a Sailor.

Myers is a 2002 graduate of Concordia Lutheran High School of Fort Wayne, Indiana and Navy Seaman Mark C. McHenry, a 2003 graduate of Wayne High School, Fort Wayne, Indiana.
