Plainfield man completes basic

U.S. Navy Seaman Joshua T. Gath, son of Debra K. and Arnold E. Gath of Plainfield, recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command in Great Lakes, Ill.

During the eight-week program, Gath completed a variety of 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.” 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.

Gath is the grandson of Delores F. Williams, also of Plainfield. He is a 2003 graduate of Plainfield High School and an ‘08 graduate of Indiana State University where he earned a bachelor of science degree.
