Delayed Entry Program

The first step.

Congratulations on your loved one's decision to join the United States Navy! There are new experiences and opportunities ahead. As a member of the Delayed Entry Program, the candidate will begin Navy activities immediately.

There will be opportunities to learn more about the Navy's programs, which will help future Sailors prepare for recruit training. During DEP the Navy candidate will learn the core values of the Navy, the 11 General Orders, and other traditions. And so will you 🇺🇸

Recruit Training Command

Foundational Training

The mission of Recruit Training Command is embodied in the Commander's Creed. 

"To transform civilians into smartly disciplined, physically fit, basically trained Sailors who are ready for follow-on training and service to the fleet while instilling in them the highest standards of Honor, Courage, and Commitment."

Your first week of updates will include:
• your SR's Ship/Division,
• meet other families in member area
• SR mailing address,
• the definition of P-Days,
• and much more

 


  


  

A-School & Training

Technical Training

The new Sailor will attend Navy A School after they have completed boot camp. The length and location of training depends on the specific rating. Navy A School does not have as many restrictions as boot camp, but does not have as many freedoms as a sailor will once they complete training.

As sailors gradually move through A School and complete different phases, their restrictions are slowly lifted and liberties are increased. Navy A School will teach functions related to rating job duties, but also ensure that sailors meet satisfactory physical requirements, appearance requirements and academic standards.

The Fleet

The Mystical Fleet

The term 'fleet' traditionally is used to describe the United States Navy's powerhouse of roughly 430 ships in active service or reserve. However, active duty use the term to describe the final leg of their training and starting their career.

The United States is home to more than 40 naval bases spread across the eastern and western coasts. The nation is also home to the world’s biggest naval base, Naval Station Norfolk. (See more bases)

The app provided lots of fun activities, such as online, trivia, scavenger hunts, & laughter Yoga It really helped me get through while my son was at boot camp. I am so grateful, everyone is so nice and a great support system. Love being a part of it.

Awesome!!! I wish I'd known about this group earlier. Of all the so-called "support groups" out there, this one is by far the best! I didn't get to use their travel agent services. But, it seems that they're very valuable for that! Great page, y'all!

Hannah N

Active/Recruit Spouse

I reached out to Andrew on the best way to cancel our flights with Delta and was able to get a full refund. Thanks for all you’ve done for our community. You’ve gone over and beyond to help us and it doesn’t go unnoticed. ⚓️

Stacey P

Oh my goodness!! Thank you for all of the Graduation travel planning. Even though we had to cancel everything... I literally had to do nothing except give my dates. I will use your service again once I’m able to go and see my girl!!! Thank you!! 💙⚓️🙏🏽🇺🇸 ✈️
