Navy Seaman Apprentice Tyler E. Broderick was recently promoted to his current rank upon graduation from recruit training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill.
Broderick received the early promotion for outstanding performance during all phases of the training cycle. Training 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.
Broderick is the son of Angie K. Broderick of Lincoln City and David E. Broderick, of Otis. Broderick is a 2010 graduate of Taft High School in Lincoln City.
