McClintock High School Graduate Completes Navy Basic Training
Fleet Hometown News Release
Posted Date: 12/17/2013
Navy Seaman Nadia S. Wright, daughter of Christopher L. Wright of Tempe, AZ, and Mandana Najmi of Scottsdale, AZ, recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Illionois.

During the eight-week program, Wright 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.

Wright is a 2013 graduate of McClintock High School, Tempe, Arizona.
