U.S. Navy Seaman Apprentice Jennifer L. Denis, daughter of Jeannette P. and Luis F. Denis of Elgin, recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill.

During the eight-week program, Denis 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 was also 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.

Denis is a 2002 graduate of Spring Valley High School in Columbia.
