Local Man Completes Navy Basic Training


Navy Seaman Jason L. Mikulec, son of Debra Warga of Oshkosh, Wis. and Lee Mikulec, of Fond du Lac, Wis., recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill.  During the eight-week program, Mikulec completed a variety of training which 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. Its distinctly ''Navy'' flavor was designed to take into account what it means to be a Sailor.

So proud of you Jason. It is an honor to have a sailor in the family. Thank you for serving our country and on a more personal level, thank you for being a extraordinary role model for my children. The world needs more people like Jason....

Such a nice article. Thank you for serving our county. The work may be hard and the struggles of being away from your family even harder. Couldn't be prouder to call you my son in law. Keep up the good work. Stay true to your values and all your hard work and effort will not go unnoticed.

A lot of young men join the military and complete basic training from FDL. What is the big deal about this one, because his dad is a member of the police force? This is unfair to the rest of the fine young men serving our country. If you recognize one (because his dad is a cop) you should recognize them all. Maybe KFIZ should have a section of their website dedicated to all servicemen and women from the community.

Maybe the fact that his dad is a cop has nothing to do with this and you should just say thank you for serving our country. Just a suggestion.

It is unfortunate that an article recognizing a young man for his service, dedication and hard work is being criticized simply because he is also lucky enough to call one of our Police Officers Dad.

So proud of you Jason, and all of our servicemen and women!

I am proud of all servicemen and women, in fact I am a disabled veteran myself. The thing I am asking is why did this young man get a write-up on KFIZ and I have never seen anyone else recognized in this manner. Can you honestly say it has nothing to do with being the son of a police officer?
