Description

An unidentified man walks past the barracks at Naval Training Center (NTC) Orlando. NTC Orlando was in operation from 1968 to 1998 and was one of three recruit training centers used by the U.S. Navy. It resided in the area that is now the community of Baldwin Park. During the 30 years that NTC Orlando was operational, more than 650,000 men and women were transformed from civilians to sailors. During their time at boot camp, which lasted eight weeks, recruits lived together in barracks, known in the Navy as "berthing areas." NTC Orlando had five barracks dedicated to housing recruits. Each barrack housed about 1,000 recruits.
