"Battle Stations" has been 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. Blazer Serving on USS Iwo Jima Navy Airman Rod C. Blazer, son of Susan Pitts of LaGrange and E. R.
