Navy Seaman Recruit Jacob A. Correll, son of Donna J. and Dane M. Correll of Durkee, recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill.

Correll is a 2007 graduate of Huntington High School.

During the eight-week program, Correll completed a variety of training, which included classroom study and practical instruction on 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 of boot camp is Battle Stations, which gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the fleet.
