Training Reservists Aboard Destroyers
(See page 502, June, 1929, Proceedings)
Lieutenant G. F. Forster (DE-F), U.S.N.R.—When naval reservists break out their sea bags and bedding preparatory to embarking for the fifteen-day training period, it is believed that articles such as “Training Reservists Aboard Destroyers” are of more than passing interest. This interesting paper by Lieutenant Commander R. S. Field, U. S. Navy, has been the subject of a great deal of discussion at the dinners held by the Seventh Battalion, Naval Militia N.J. —U. S. Naval Reserve, each drill night on the U.S.S. Newton, Jersey City, N.J. The writer will endeavor to cover briefly those phases of reserve training brought out in the aforesaid article as well as other points worthy of consideration in advancing the efficiency of the Naval Reserve.
