Pella Graduate Completes Basic Training

Navy Seaman Apprentice Andrew J. Senn, a 2010 graduate of Pella High School, Pella, Iowa, recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill. with honors. During the eight-week program, Senn 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. The capstone event of boot camp is “Battle Stations.” This exercise gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the fleet.
