  • Cody A. Hendrix, son of Donna Sailors of Beaufort, and Jessica K. Maloon, daughter of Teresa L. Maloon of Ridgeland, have enlisted in the U.S. Navy under the Delayed Entry Program at Navy Recruiting District in Raleigh.

  • The program allows recruits to enter the Navy and take up to one year to complete prior commitments such as high school. Using recruiters as mentors, the program helps recruits ease into the transition from civilian to military life.

    Hendrix and Maloon both will report for active duty to undergo basic training at the Navy's Recruit Training Center in Great Lakes, Ill.

    Maloon is a 2011 graduate of Cane Bay High School in Summerville.
