Seaman Apprentice Justin P. Roberts



Navy Seaman Apprentice Justin P. Roberts, son of Cynthia M. Soyka of Poughkeepsie, NY and Geoffrey L. Roberts, of Hyde Park, NY, recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill, with honors and was promoted to his current rank.

The capstone event of boot camp is “Battle Stations”. This exercise gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the fleet. “Battle Stations” is 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 in today’s U.S. Navy.

Roberts is a 1996 graduate of Poughkeepsie High School of Poughkeepsie, NY.
