Maxfield completes basic training Navy Seaman Ap- prentice Craig W. Max- field, son of Julie M. Haskell of Kettering, Ohio and Micheal D. Maxfield, of Whitley City, Ky., recently com- pleted U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill. During the eight- week program, Maxfield 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 phys- ical 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 attrib- utes of sacrifice, dedica- tion, teamwork and endurance in each re- cruit through the practi- cal application of basic Navy skills and the core values of Honor, Courage and Commit- ment. Its distinctly ''Navy'' flavor was de- signed to take into ac- count what it means to be a Sailor. Maxfield is a 2008 graduate of Fairmont High School of Ketter- ing, Ohio.
