A New Life
From the seconds the recruits got off the bus at RTC Orlando they knew life would be different. The goal was to turn a civilian into a professional sailor in under eight weeks.

In the first week, a recruit was given a fresh, clean haircut and issued a full sea bag, which contained the uniforms for a sailor. The recruit was taught how to fold uniforms, how to wear them, and how to March.

[Sidebar:]
Core Principles of a Professional Sailor:

Honor, Courage and Commitment

Sustained superior performance every
day by everyone

Teamwork is essential

Every Sailor is a firefighter
The ship is your home.
