Enlists In Navy

Civilian Brandon L. Wertz, son of Paula M. and Terry L. Wertz of Warfordsburg, recently enlisted in the U.S. Navy under the delayed entry program at Navy Recruiting District, Pittsburgh.

The program allows recruits to enter the Navy and take up to one year to complete prior commitments such as high school. Using recruiters as mentors, this program helps recruits ease into the transition from civilian to military life.

Wertz will report for active duty to undergo basic training at the Navy’s Recruit Training Center, Great Lakes, Ill.

Wertz is completing his senior year at Southern Fulton High School.
