William C. Burton
Army Reserve Pvt. William C. Burton has graduated from Basic Combat training at Fort Sill, Lawton, OK.
During the nine weeks of training, the soldier studied the Army mission and received instruction and training exercises in drill and ceremonies, Army history, core values and traditions, military courtesy, military justice, physical fitness, first aid, rifle marksmanship, weapons use, map reading and land navigation, foot marches, armed and unarmed combat, and field maneuvers and tactics.
Burton is the son of Sheryl Anthos of Riverview.

Marissa F. Trugillo
Navy Seaman Apprentice Marissa F. Trugillo, a 2007 graduate of ­Riverview High School, Riverview, recently completed  U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, IL.
During the eight-week program, Trugillo 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.

Kamesha Baggett

Army Pvt. Kamesha Baggett has graduated from basic combat training at Fort Jackson, Columbia, SC.
During the nine weeks of training, the soldier studied the Army ­mission, history, tradition and core values, physical fitness, and received instruction and practice in basic combat skills, military weapons, chemical warfare and bayonet training, drill and ceremony, marching, rifle marksmanship, armed and unarmed combat, map reading, field tactics, military courtesy, military justice system, basic first aid, foot marches, and field training exercises.
Baggett is the daughter of Leo Scott of 12th Ave., Tampa, and sister of Miriam Molina of Riverview.
In 2007, the private graduated from Brandon High School.
