Galvez, who graduated from Canyon High School in 2013, engaged in classroom study and on-hands training in naval customs, first aid, firefighting, water safety, physical fitness and aircraft safety while attending the training facility.
However, Battle Stations 21, a 21-hour simulation exercise and graduation requirement, is the most trying aspect of boot camp, according to the Navy Times.
“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,” stated Navy officials.
The overall experience at Recruit Training Command is intended to reflect what it means to be a sailor.
