    Great Lakes (September 23, 2020)— Over a 10-day period staff at each of the barracks at Training Support Center (TSC) Great Lakes grilled for the students.

    TSC staff, with funds provided by Moral, Welfare and Recreation department, supplied food for 13 events to enhance morale to the over 5,000 students currently stationed at TSC.

    “Staff are holding the events to lighten up the atmosphere for students who are working hard in their individual ‘A’ schools,” said Navy Military Training Instructor Chief Machinist’s Mate Willie Carter. “We understand that the work they do are keeping all their shipmates healthy, I’m happy that we are able to break up the monotony and benefit morale. Everyone at the command is family. Cooking for them is a small way to let them know that we care.”

    According to TSC Great Lakes Commanding Officer Capt. Pat Sutton, providing meals to our students who are in our barracks, was a nice morale booster after a long period of adhering to mitigating guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19 while maintaining mission readiness.

    “TSC staff did an outstanding job planning and executing the events,” Sutton said. “Events like these are really important for the command because it still provides a sense of teamwork and pride in what we do. The people at our command are our number one priority and, I have got to say, no matter what barriers are placed in front of them they never waver in completing our mission. The whole project was well executed in a manner that supported social distancing and face coverings. The food was well received and appreciated by our students.”
