Battle Stations 21 - USS Trayer


 

The USS Trayer is the site of boot camps new Battle Stations trainer (Battle Stations 21). This will be your Recruits final test of endurance, strength, and teamwork to becoming a "United States Sailor". They will endure 12 straight hours of obstacles that may face them once at Sea.

Trayer is a 3/4-scale, 210 feet long mockup of an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer enclosed within a 157,000-square-foot building on board RTC. The trainer uses Hollywood-style special effects to create challenging and realistic training scenarios for recruits. Recruit divisions work through a 12-hour Battle Stations 21 experience as a comprehensive test of the skills and teamwork learned during their eight weeks of basic training at RTC.

Battlestations: There is always interest in knowing when your sailor starts battlestations. This is from the public affairs officer at Great Lakes:

"We do not give out any specific training schedules of the recruits including Battle Stations. Your recruit is the only one who is allowed to give you that information."

While you may want to share information about BS21 with others, please observe OPSEC rules and only communicate that information by private message.

Thank you for the video on Battle Station 21, now I can relate to what my son will be going thru next week. I wish I could be there with him!
Proud Navy Dad,
Marco V.

They may get a pizza party to celebrate....then back to preparation for PIR. There is no such thing as holiday routine at Basic....

As I understand it, Battle Stations 21 used to be the conclusion of 8-week Boot Camp and the "Capping Ceremony" took place then ... from "Recruit" ball cap to "Navy" cap.

Now that Boot Camp is 10 weeks, is the Capping Ceremony still after Battle Stations or at the end of the 10 weeks? Also, is a recruit officially a "sailor" after Battle Stations?

(I hope I posted this in the correct place.)

yes and yes...................
