Navy Seaman Recruit Katherine F. Hopper, a 2011 graduate of Golden Valley High School om Santa Clarita, recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill.

During the eight-week program, Hopper completed a variety of in-depth training.

Her training included classroom study and practical instruction on naval customs and other practical skills including  first aid, firefighting, water safety and survival, and shipboard and aircraft safety.

An emphasis in training 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.

The drill instructs the recruits in 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.
