Muncy student graduates from recruit training

Alexander Puzio recently graduated from Recruit Training with the U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps.

Alex’s training began on Saturday, July 23 in Buffalo, N.Y. at the Buffalo and Erie County Naval and Military Park. For the week of training, the recruits were berthed on the USS Little Rock.

During the training, the recruits were graded on physical fitness, military knowledge, leadership, teamwork, responsibility and military bearing.

Alex joined the Wahoo Sea Cadets SS-238 in June based out of Avoca, Pa. The U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps is a maritime based youth program sponsored by the U.S. Navy and supported by the U.S. Coast Guard.

Cadets train on naval bases and other military installations in a variety of military disciplines, always choosing adventure, seeking challenges and stepping outside of their comfort zones to prove to the world that “Greatness has no age.”

The Sea Cadet program is for young men and women ages 13 to 17 who are interested in developing their skills in leadership, basic seamanship, courage, self-reliance and discipline.

Alex is the son of Stephen and Kelly Puzio and will be a freshman at Muncy High School.
