I saw the memorial notice of Captain Lucille Kuhn. She was awesome and  scary! I wanted to share this picture taken in RTC Orlando 1979 - upon our graduation. I was in company 3009 with PO2 Tylka and PO2 Glass, company commanders.

I received the U.S. Navy League Most Outstanding Recruit of the Year from Rear Admiral Mow and Captain Kuhn.

I was a company commander from April 1987 to June 1991. Also pushed a hall of fame company during my time there with Chief Snodgrass. That was Company C179. I pushed 7 companies during my tenure and really enjoyed this duty for 4 plus years!

FYI, there are three great RTC Orlando sites on Facebook:
1) RTC-Naval Training Command, Orlando, FL Boot Camp 
2) All those who attended Navy boot camp in Orlando Fl or served as a cc.
3) Naval Training Center Orlando (NTC) Boot Camp

I attended  boot camp from Aug.21, 1974 to Nov. 1974. I cant remember my company # but it was a Drill Team and we practiced a lot on the grass beside the grinder. We had  BMC Stone as CC and a Drill instructor Chief whom I cannot remember. Stone had a nick name as The Grey Fox and always had a scowl on his face. We were in Batt. 5 and he told us the first night where the hole in the fence was. Two recruits " riffs " took him up on it and Stone was right. They were captured within a day. He ordered us to sleep with our " piece " from the " whore house " and to write our mothers a letter. I was made a squad leader and once had to dry shave on the roof of the battalion wearing a bucket on my head. I think they called it hell week or something. All and all, it was a great experience that I would do over again.
