FORT JACKSON, South Carolina – Paulina Guillermo, daughter of Ana and Marcos Guillermo of Kelseyville, Calif., completed Army Combat Basic Training on July 2 in Fort Jackson, South Carolina.
Guillermo successfully completed 10 weeks of training designed to challenge new Army recruits both physically and mentally.
In addition to the physical conditioning, Guillermo and her fellow recruits spent numerous hours in a classroom and field assignments, which included learning first aid, uniform regulations, combat life saver, marksmanship, Bastogne, Remagen and operated as a small unit during field training.
Guillermo also received instructions on the Army values – loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity and personal courage – and what each word means in guiding personal and professional conduct.
She will begin Individual Advance Training in August at Fort Lee, Va.
Guillermo is a 2010 graduate of Kelseyville High School.
