Pinellas military personnel's achievements

Military news

Navy Seaman Michael E. Iles, son of Mary Ann Nickle of Palm Harbor and William J. Iles of Clearwater, completed Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill.

During the eight-week program, Iles 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," an exercise that gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the fleet.

Iles is a 2005 graduate of Palm Harbor University High and graduated in 2009 from Florida State University, Tallahassee with a bachelor of science degree.
