During the eight-week program, Maynard completed a variety of training which included classroom study and practical instruction on naval customs, first aid, firefighting, water safety and survival, and shipboard and aircraft safety.

The capstone event of boot camp is Battle Stations, an exercise 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.

Maynard, the son of Effie Shaw of Naugatuck, is a 2006 graduate of Emmett O’Brien Technical High School.
