The capstone event of boot camp is "Battle Stations." This exercise
gives recruits the key skills and confidence they need to graduate and

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'
