Benjamin Lowry

U.S. Navy Private Seaman Benjamin E. Lowry graduated from U.S. Naval boot camp at Great Lakes Naval Station in Illinois.

The seaman successfully completed an intensive eight-week program that included training in military discipline and studies, Naval core values, physical fitness and basic warfare principles and skills.

Upon completion of basic training, Private Seaman Lowry completed four months of A School with CTRSA training in Pensacola, Fla., and graduated with honors as the highest rank first ascension sailor. While at Pensacola, the private also set the Florida Morale Welfare and Recreation record with 812 sit-ups with no breaks.

He will be attending additional training in Roanoke, Va.

Private Seaman Lowry credits part of his success to his great teachers of his alma mater, Oak Ridge High School, and the discipline he learned during his senior year on the school’s wrestling team.

The 2009 Oak Ridge graduate is the son of Gregory and Vicki Hoffangle of El Dorado Hills.
