HONOR, COURAGE, COMMITMENT: NAVY BOOT CAMP. A detailed, revealing description of the transition of civilians into sailors, and a special reminder of what it was like when the reader went through Navy Boot Camp.
HONOR, COURAGE, COMMITMENT: Navy Boot Camp. A detailed, revealing description of the transition of civilians into sailors at the Naval Recruit Training Command at Great Lakes, Illinois. By J.F. Leahy. In the Fall of 2000, 81 civilian men and women reported to the Naval Recruit Training Command at Great Lakes to attend "Boot Camp." The author was given permission to follow the class on a very close and personal basis. The book offers a revealing look at a cross-section of modern American youth. It sheds light on the controversy over gender integration and helps bridge the gap between the military services and the society they serve. This book is valuable to future recruits, to those who train them, and to those who want a special reminder of what it was like when they went through Navy Boot Camp. Hardcover. 230 pages. B/w photos. Class roster.
