Seaman Recruit Korey Rylance

Navy Seaman Recruit Korey A. Rylance, son of Kristene and Richard Foxworthy of Hidden Valley Lake and Jeff and Jacky Rylance of Rohnert Park, recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command in Great Lakes, Ill.

During the eight-week program, Rylance completed training that 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, an exercise that gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the fleet. Its distinctive Navy flavor was designed to take into account what it means to be a sailor.

Rylance is now at New London Submarine School in Groton, Conn., where he is enrolled in Basic Enlisted Submarine School. After completing that,  he will move onto Tech School and finally “A” School. He is a 2009 graduate of Middletown High School in Middletown, Calif.
