-A +A
Navy Seaman Colton W. Ziebarth, son of Lisa M. Tomiak and stepson of Chris M. Tomiak of Folsom, was recently promoted to his current rank upon graduation from recruit training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill. Ziebarth received the early promotion for outstanding performance during all phases of the training cycle. Training included classroom study and practical instruction on naval customs, first aid, firefighting, water safety and survival, and shipboard and aircraft safety. An emphasis was also placed on physical fitness. 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. Ziebarth is a 2010 graduate of Folsom High School. ~ Staff report
