Not For Self...
Newton boy graduates from U.S. Naval Sea Cadets boot camp
The motto of the U.S. Navy is “Non Sibi Sed Patriae,” which is Latin for “Not For Self, But Country.”
Garrett Griggs of Newton recently experienced what it means to take up the Navy’s core values of honor, courage and commitment by taking part in a 12-day U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps boot camp at Camp Dodge in Johnston. He was among 47 members of the Central Iowa Division to successfully complete the program at a graduation ceremony held most appropriately on July 4.
“Cadet Griggs performed at a high level and is a fine representative of his family and his community,” Central Iowa Division Commanding Officer Lt. Cdr. Eric Goslinga, NSCC, said. “The Recruit Training experience is an intense, demanding training, equivalent to military basic training standards. Completing this program of training is a significant accomplishment, requiring a unique level of motivation, self-discipline, and commitment to excellence.”
