Navy Seaman Recruit Christopher A. Willingham

Navy Seaman Recruit Christopher A. Willingham, son of Ann M. Willingham and stepson of Clark A. Willingham, of Hayden, recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command in Great Lakes, Ill. During the eight-week program, Willingham 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 also was 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. The distinctly “Navy” flavor was designed to take into account what it means to be a sailor.

Willingham is a 2005 graduate of Hayden High School.
