Description

Flagbearers carry religious flags during the graduation of a co-ed recruit company at the Orlando Naval Training Center in 1992. NTC Orlando was in operation from 1968-1998 and was one of three recruit training centers used by the Unites States Navy. It resided in the area that is now the community of Baldwin Park. During the thirty years that NTC Orlando was operational, more than 650,000 men and women were transformed from civilians to sailors. Beginning in 1973, NTC Orlando became the Navy's only co-educational recruit training center. Following an intense eight 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.
