Navy Seaman Apprentice Stephen C. Davis, nephew of Rene Reed of Clearwater, completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill.
During the eight-week program, Davis completed a variety of training that 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.
Davis is a 2009 graduate of Osceola High School of Kissimmee.
