Navy Seaman Apprentice Christopher M. Crone, son of Anne M. Sandon, of Castaic, and Patrick M. Crone, of Castaic, recently completed U.S. Navy basic training and was meritoriously promoted to his current rank of Navy Seaman Apprentice at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill.

During the eight-week program, Crone completed a variety of training which included classroom study and practical instruction in a variety of 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 at the end of the recruit training command boot camp is "Battle Stations."

This exercise gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the fleet.

"Battle Stations" is an exercise 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 in today's U.S. Navy.

Crone is a 2007 graduate of Valencia High School in Valencia.
