Students face tough challenges every day, but 32 cadets from the St. Lucie West Centennial High School Navy JROTC faced a very tough one recently, spending spent four days at the U. S. Navy’s Parris Island Boot Camp. During their visit they were treated just like any other recruit. They learned how to follow orders with spit second response times. They learned to pay close attention to details or suffer “extra military instruction.” Of course, they received “counseling” from their drill instructor, slept in barracks, ate in the Mess Hall, trained on the obstacle course, and drilled just like Marines. On their way home, cadets stopped to visit the U.S.S. Yorktown, saw the fighter jets, visited the bridge, combat information center, engine room, and many other parts of the ship.
