GREAT LAKES, Ill. (July 18, 2022) – Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC) New Student Indoctrination (NSI) Cycle 2 midshipman candidates recite their midshipman oath during a graduation ceremony in the Midway Ceremonial Drill Hall at Recruit Training Command (RTC), July 18.

Upon completion of NSI, the candidates will start their freshman year of the NROTC program at colleges and universities nationwide this fall. NSI is an indoctrination program hosted at RTC, and provides midshipmen with a common military training orientation. NSI provides basic training in five warfighting fundamentals – firefighting, damage control, seamanship, watchstanding and small arms handling and marksmanship – to begin creating basically trained and smartly disciplined future Navy and Marine Corps officers. NROTC is overseen by Couture and her NSTC staff, headquartered at Naval Station Great Lakes, Illinois, which supports naval accessions training for 98 percent of the Navy’s new officers and enlisted Sailors.
