Navy Seaman Apprentice D’Angelo N. Harris, son of Yvette R. Harris, and Navy Seaman Christina L. Kuzenkova, daughter of Cheryl L. and David W. Bowles, of Richmond, recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command in Great Lakes, Ill. During the eight-week program, Harris and Kuzenkova completed a variety of training which included classroom study and practical instruction on naval customs, first aid, firefighting, water safety and survival, shipboard and aircraft safety and physical fitness. The capstone event of boot camp is "Battle Stations,” an exercise that 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. Harris is a 2008 graduate of Samuel W. Wolfson High School in Jacksonville, Fla. And Kuzenkova is a 2007 graduate of J.R. Tucker High School in Henrico.
