PIQUA — Navy Seaman Recruit Jeremy T. Langston, son of Russell P. Langston of St. Marys, and Barbara C. Langston of Piqua, recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill. Langston is a 2009 graduate of Piqua High School.

During the eight-week program, Langston 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. “Battle Stations” is designed to galvanize the basic warrior attributes of sacrifice, dedication, teamwork and endurance in each recruit through the practical application of basic Navy skills and the core values of Honor, Courage and Commitment. Its distinctly ”Navy” flavor was designed to take into account what it means to be a sailor.
