Wilson Aces Boot Camp

Navy Seaman Recruit Vendean O. Wilson, brother of Norris Wilson of Arverne, recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Illinois.

During the eight-week program, Wilson 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.” This exercise gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the fleet.

Wilson is a 2010 graduate of Beach Channel High School.
