James R. McGrath
Air Force Airman James R. McGrath has graduated from basic military training at Lackland Air Force Base, San Antonio, TX.

During the six weeks of training, the airman studied the Air Force mission, organization, core values, and military customs and courtesies; performed drill and ceremony marches, and received physical training, rifle marksmanship, field training exercises, and special training in human relations.
In addition, airmen who complete basic training earn credits toward an associate in applied science degree relating through the Community College of the Air Force.
He is the son of Jeff McGrath of Big Bear Circle, Riverview, and Tammy Haslwanter of Liberty Ave., Temple Terrace.
McGrath is a 2008 graduate of East Bay High School, Gibsonton.

Robert M. Sanders
Navy Reserve Seaman Recruit Robert M. Sanders, brother of Deangio and brother-in-law of Tammy Sanders of Riverview, recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, IL.
During the eight-week program, Sanders 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.
 Sanders is a 2008 graduate of Richard C. Spoto High School of Riverview.
