    PARRIS ISLAND, S.C. - Recruits of Kilo Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, learned the basics of water survival June 17, 2013, at Parris Island’s recruit training pool.

    To qualify in basic water survival, recruits had to pass various tests including swimming in full utility uniform, jumping into deep water from a tower and treading water. Water survival training was designed to reduce fear, raise self-confidence and develop the ability to survive in water. The evaluation is a graduation requirement and provides recruits with basic water survival skills. Kilo Company is scheduled to graduate Aug. 16, 2013.
