Description

The members of a co-educational recruit company pass in review 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. Beginning in 1973, NTC Orlando became the Navy's only co-ed recruit training center. Following an intense 8-week training program, the various companies would march along the vast field know as the "Grinder" and pass before the base commanders for review. This ceremony would mark the completion of their transformation from civilians to sailors.
