Jersey Village High grad completes Navy basic training
Navy Seaman Recruit Christopher A. Figueroa recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command in Great Lakes, Ill.
Figueroa, a 2005 graduate of Jersey Village High School, finished the eight-week program, which included classroom study and practical instruction on naval customs, first aid, firefighting, water safety and survival, and shipboard and aircraft safety, along with an emphasis on physical fitness.
The culminating event of the training was "Battle Stations," which is designed to galvanize the basic 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.
Figueroa is the son of Rebecca and Oswaldo G. Figueroa of Houston.
