Dale C. Owens

Civilian Dale C. Owens, son of Stephanie A. and Robert D. Owens of Craig, recently enlisted in the U.S. Navy under the Delayed Entry Program at Navy Recruitment District in Denver.

The program allows recruits to enter the Navy and take up to one year to complete prior commitments, such as high school.

Using recruiter as mentors, this program helps recruits ease into the transition from civilian to military life.

Owens will report for active duty to undergo basic training at the Navy’s Recruit Training Center in Great Lakes, Ill.

Owens is completing his senior year at Moffat County High School.
