GREAT LAKES, Ill. – Navy Seaman Quintin S. Scott, son of Douglas and Tina Scott of Lakeport, Calif., recently completed US Navy basic training as an E-3 Seaman at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, North Chicago, Illinois.

He is a 2018 graduate of Clear Lake High School.

During the eight-week program, Scott 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. Emphasis was also placed on physical fitness.

Scott received a Marksman Sharpshooter Ribbon, which is the highest award one may receive for weapons qualifications.

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 commitments. Its distinctly “Navy” flavor was designed to take into account what it means to be a sailor.

After completing boot camp in Great Lakes, Illinois, Scott has been assigned to the Naval Submarine Training Command in Groton, Connecticut.
