Shemita R. Massey

Times Leader

Navy Seaman Shemita R. Massey, daughter of Jeffrey and stepdaughter of Tammy J. Massey of Bridgeport, Ohio, recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill.

During the eight-week program, Massey 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". 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. Its distinctly 'Navy'

flavor was designed to take into account what it means to be a Sailor.

Massey is a 2007 graduate of Forest Hills High School of Marshville, N.
