Patrick A. Johnson

Navy Seaman Patrick A. Johnson, son of Meg Johnson of Mesa, AZ (recently relocated from Lanesboro) and Doug Johnson of Preston, and also grandson of Marilyn Soland of Lanesboro, completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill. as of November 9, 2012.

During the eight-week program, Johnson 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,” which gives recuits 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.

Johnson is a 2011 graduate of Lanesboro High School.
