FREDERICKSBURG, Texas (NNS) -- Navy Recruiting District (NRD) San Antonio hosted its annual District Training Meeting and Awards Banquet at the Hangar Hotel and Convention Center, Dec. 13.
More than 200 Sailors and support personnel received mandatory training to include, but not limited to, anti-terrorism/force protection, sexual harassment, suicide prevention, alcohol abuse, and fraternization.
“There’s nothing worse than having to send a Sailor home and end their career because they chose not to follow rules and regulations,” said Cmdr. Jeffrey Reynolds, NRD commanding officer, of Raleigh, North Carolina. “That’s why this training is important. If we take care of each other and adhere to the tenants of leadership, trust and professionalism, then we won’t have to worry.”
Joining in the training was Command Master Chief Donald A. Charbonneau of Southbridge, Massachusetts, the senior enlisted leader of Navy Recruiting Command, who spoke on the topics of transformation, recruiting goals, and fraternization.
After training, the NRD held its awards banquet, during which numerous Sailors and support personnel garnered recognition for their outstanding contributions during the year.
During the event, the NRD was recognized as Recruiting Region West’s 2018 Most Improved District of the Year.
“This award is the accumulation of hard work by every member of the command,” said Reynolds. “I couldn’t be prouder.”
NRD’s area of responsibility includes more than 30 Navy Recruiting Stations and Navy Officer Recruiting Stations spread throughout 144,000 square miles of Central and South Texas territory.
The Navy’s recruiting force totals over 6,100 personnel in more than 1,000 recruiting stations around the globe. Their combined goal is to attract the highest quality candidates to assure the ongoing success of America’s Navy.
