US-Navy logoHOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (5/11/14) — Navy Seaman Apprentice Darryl D. Hines II, recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill.

Hines is the son of Tonga T. Rippy and grandson of Katherine Hines of Indianapolis, Ind. and also son of Stephanie L. Donson of Madisonville, Ky.    

During the eight-week program, Hines 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". 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.

Hines is a 2012 graduate of Franklin Central High School of Indianapolis, Ind.
