Military news

Navy Seaman Apprentice John F. Devarti, son of Sal J. Devarti of Palm Harbor and Nancy E. Monahan of Indian Rocks Beach, was promoted to his current rank upon graduating from U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill.

Devarti received the early promotion for outstanding performance during all phases of the training, which included classroom study and practical instruction on naval customs, first aid, firefighting, water safety and survival, shipboard and aircraft safety and 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. Devarti is a 2013 graduate of East Lake High.
