Navy Seaman Apprentice Heather L. Conrad, daughter

of Kimberly S. and Mike S. Conrad of Cadiz, Ohio, recently completed U.S.

Navy basic training and was meritoriously promoted to her current rank at

Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill.

During the eight-week program, Conrad 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 in today's

U.S. Navy.

Conrad is a 2007 graduate of Harrison Central High School of Cadiz,
