Courtney M. Corrica
Navy Seaman Recruit Courtney M. Corrica,  daughter of Sylvia Corrica of Riverview, FL and Giles E. Williams of Riverview, recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit  Training Command, Great Lakes, IL.

During the eight-week program, Corrica 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.” This exercise  gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the  fleet. “Battle Stations” is designed to galvanize the basic warrior attributes of sacrifice, dedication, teamwork and endurance in each recruit through the practical application of basic Navy skills and the core values of Honor, Courage and Commitment. Its distinctly ‘’Navy’’  flavor was designed to take into account what it means to be a Sailor.
Corrica is a 2007 graduate of Bloomingdale Senior High School of  Valrico.
