Seaman Recruit Cody A. Hendrix recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill.

During the eight-week program, Hendrix learned naval customs, first aid, firefighting, water safety and survival, and shipboard and aircraft safety. Physical fitness also was emphasized.

Boot camp training also includes "Battle Stations," an exercise designed to galvanize the basic warrior attributes of sacrifice, dedication, teamwork and endurance through the practical application of basic Navy skills and the core values of honor, courage and commitment.

Hendrix is the son of Donna G. Sailors and stepson of Bryan W. Sailors of Beaufort.

He is a 2013 graduate of Beaufort High School.
