Navy Seaman Apprentice Matthew S. Dylewski, son of Jeanne M. Chambers of Elgin, was recently promoted to his current rank upon graduation from recruit training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill. He received the early promotion for outstanding performance during all phases of the training cycle.

Navy Seaman Recruit Joseph G. McCall, son of Robin and Ronald L. McCall, also of Elgin, also recently completed the Navy’s basic training at Great Lakes.

During the eight-week program, Dylewski and McCall 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. “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. Its distinctly “Navy” flavor was designed to take into account what it means to be a Sailor.  

Dylewski is the brother of Stephenie M. Mosley, also of Elgin, and is a 2010 graduate of Lugoff-Elgin High School (L-EHS).

McCall is the brother of Jason M. McCall also of Elgin and is a 2006 L-EHS graduate.
