Navy Seaman Apprentice Cordell J. Schofield, son of Brian P. and Janet K. Schofield, of Gypsum, recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command in Great Lakes, Ill. During the eight-week program, Schofield completed a variety of training which included classroom study and practical instruction on naval customs, first aid, firefighting, water safety and survival, as well as 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.
