Navy Seaman Recruit Qam B. Prince, son of Richard A. Fraser of Valley Cottage, N.Y. and Natasha R. Prince of Bronx, N.Y., recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill. 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. Prince is a 2012 graduate of Nyack High School of Nyack, N.Y.
