Navy Seaman Recruit Michael J. Pharo, son of Michael J. and Bobbie Pharo of New Braunfels recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, 111.
During the eight-week program, Pharo completed a variety of training which included classroom study and practical instruction on naval customs, first aid, fire fighting, water safety and survival, and shipboard and aircraft safety. An emphasis is also placed on physical fitness.
Pharo and other recruits also received instruction on the Navy’s core values—honor, courage and commitment— and how to apply them in their military performance and personal conduct. Pharo joins 55,000 men and women who will enter the Navy this year from all over the country.
Men and women train together from their first day in the Navy just as they do aboard ships and at shore commands around the world. To reinforce the team concept, Pharo and other recruits also were trained in preventing sexual harassment and ensuring equal opportunity.
Even as the naval service gets smaller over the next few years, highly motivated young people like Pharo are still finding an opportunity to improve their knowledge and education as they become part of the most highly technical naval force in history. This year alone the Navy will have more than 57,000 job openings and opportunities, most of which include guaranteed training.

Pharo is a 1996 graduate of MacArthur High School of San Antonio.
Marine Pfc. Kevin S. Robles, son of Maria T. and Martin Robles Jr. of New Braunfels, and Marine Pvt. Justin E. Vacek, son of Mary J. Pruett of New Braunfels, recently completed basic training at Marine Corps Recruit Depot, San Diego.
The two successfully completed 12 weeks of training designed to challenge new Marine recruits both physically and mentally.
The recruits began their training at 5 a.m. by running three miles and performing calisthenics. In addition to the physical conditioning program, they spent numerous hours in classroom and field assignments which included learning first aid, uniform regulations, combat war survival, marksmanship, hand-to-hand combat and assorted weapons training. They performed close order drill and operated as a small infantry unit during field training.
The recruits also received instruction on the Marine Corps’ core values—honor, courage and commitment, and what the words mean in guiding personal and professional conduct.
Recruits ended the training phase with The Crucible, a 54-hour team effort, problem solving evolution which culminated with an emotional ceremony in which the recruits were presented the Marine Corps Emblem, and were addressed as “Marines” for the first time since boot camp began. Robles and Vacek join 41,000 men and women who will enter the Marine Corps this year from all over the country.
Robles is a 1995 graduate of Canyon High School.
Air Force Airman Trista I. Engelke has graduated from basic military training at Lackland Air Force Base, San Antonio.
During the six weeks of training, the airman studied the Air Force mission, organization and customs and received special training in human relations.
In addition, airmen who complete basic training earn credits toward an associate degree through the Community College of the Air Force.
Engelke is the daughter of Shenie I. Slice and Roger L. Engelke, both of New Braunfels. She is a 1994 graduate of New Braunfels High School.

HOUSTON (AP) — Six Texas A&M University cadets have been indicted on 60 misdemeanor counts after accusations they beat, tortured and humiliated freshmen over five months beginning in November.
The six students — all “advisers,” or instructors, to A&M’s elite precision Fish Drill Team — were indicted on charges of assault with bodily injury, hazing and failing to report hazing, all offenses punishable by fines and jail time.
Three other students were charged on six counts of assault and hazing.
All were suspended from the university’s Corps of Cadets when the assaults became known in late March and will face administrative hearings that could lead to their
expulsion from the university.
A&M Security Director Bob Wiatt described the attacks as “egregious.” “There were numerous punches — punches to the face, punches to the torso,” the police chief said.
“We had one instance in which a young man who was doing pushups had a rifle placed across his hands. On adviser stood on one end of the weapon, and another stood on the other end, crushing the victim’s hands.”
