Five Eau Claire men are receiving their initial naval indoctrination at the U.S. Naval Training Center, Great Lakes, IL. After instruction in seamanship, military drill, and general naval procedures, they will take a series of aptitude tests to determine whether they will be assigned to a naval service school, to a shore station, or to immediate duty at sea.
