BASIC TRAINING COMPLETED

Navy Seaman Anicia A. Howard, a 2007 graduate of Bremerton High School, recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill.

During the eight-week program, Howard 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 also was 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.

USS ABRAHAM LINCOLN AWARDED

USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72) received the 2009 Franklin Covey Leadership Greatness Award last week at Naval Station Bremerton for improving operational excellence while maximizing sailors’ quality of life and work.

The award was presented to Capt. Patrick D. Hall, Commanding Officer of USS Abraham Lincoln for significant and dramatic improvement in leadership, conduct and climate on board the Lincoln during a two-year period.

The Franklin Covey Leadership program provides tools aimed at building leadership and goal setting skills through philosophies such as “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and the Four Disciplines.”

Following the 2008 Western Pacific deployment, the Lincoln had a 33 percent reduction in non-judicial punishments over the previous year, a 61 percent reduction in alcohol-related incidents and a four-fold increase in advanced education with a 98 percent completion rate.

More noticeably, the Lincoln also beat the Navy-wide Zone “A” Navy retention goal (48 percent) for two-straight quarters (67 percent in the third quarter and 52 percent in fourth quarter), allowing it to fly the retention flag for the first time in five years.
