Navy Seaman Apprentice Jordan P. Osmera, daughter of Stacie S. Van Nostrand of Clearwater and James G. Osmera Jr. of Omaha, Neb., was promoted to her current rank upon graduation from recruit training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill.

Osmera received the early promotion for outstanding performance during all phases of the training cycle.

Training 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," an exercise that gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the fleet.

Osmera is a 2008 graduate of Bellevue East High, Bellevue, Neb.
