Navy Seaman Recruit John Lewis, son of Charles Lewis, of Crestview, and Romona Huerta, of Orange, Texas, graduated from U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill.

Training 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," which gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the fleet.

Lewis is a 2008 Crestview High School graduate.
