Navy Seaman  Jay P. Wilson, son of Jay P. and Terri P. Wilson of  Crestview, and brother Zachary T. Wilson of  Virginia Beach, Va., recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill.

Their eight-week 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 boot camp's capstone event, "Battle Stations," instills 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.

Jay P. Wilson is a 2012 graduate of  Crestview High School.
