Navy Seaman Recruit Samuel N. Steinhouse, son of Michael Mahoney and Janice Konigsberg of Wellington, recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command in Great Lakes, Ill.
During the eight-week program, Steinhouse completed a variety of training, which 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, an exercise that gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the fleet.
Steinhouse is a 2014 graduate of Palm Beach Central High School.
