Muniz completes basic training
Navy Seaman Recruit David S. Muniz, son of Samuel L. and
Sulema Muniz, of Pecos, recently completed U.S. Navy basic
training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill.
During the eight-week program, Muniz completed a variety of
training which included classroom study and practical
instruction on naval customs, first aid, fire fighting,
water safety and survival, and shipboard and aircraft
safety. An emphasis is also placed on physical fitness.
Muniz and other recruits also received instruction on the
Navy's core values - honor, courage and commitment - and how
to apply them in their military performance and personal
conduct. Muniz joins 55,000 men and women who will enter the
Navy this year from all over the country.
Men and women train together from their first day in the
Navy just as they do aboard ships and at shore commands
around the world. To reinforce the team concept, Muniz and
other recruits also were trained in preventing sexual
harassment and ensuring equal opportunity.
Even as the naval service gets smaller over the next few
years, highly motivated young people like Muniz are still
finding an opportunity to improve their knowledge and
education as they become part of the most highly technical
naval force in history. This year alone the Navy will have
more than 57,000 job openings and opportunities which
include guaranteed training.
He is a 1997 graduate of Pecos High School.
