Navy Seaman Recruit Saifies M. Anderson



Navy Seaman Recruit Saifies M. Anderson, daughter of Bridgette D. Anderson of Hampton, Va. and Timothy D. Dowlen, of Newburgh, N. Y., recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill.

During the eight-week program, Anderson 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. This is achieved through the practical application of basic traditional 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.

Anderson is a 2010 graduate of Newburgh Free Academy of Newburgh, N. Y.
