The Navy Recruit Training Command Orlando, Florida was one of three recruit training sites for men (1968–1994) and from 1972 to 1994 it was the Navy boot camp for women.

More than 650,000 recruits passed through its gates before it was closed. Nearly 188,000 of them were women. The former base was revitalized into what is now the beautiful Baldwin Park neighborhood.

When in Orlando if you want to see where RTC Orlando once stood, do an internet seach for "Blue Jacket Park" and park in the lot off General Rees Road.  A tall marker at the entrance of the park shares some of the area's history. Walk right toward the mast and statues and you will come upon the memorial created by the Central Florida Navy League that includes the Lone Sailor statute, Blue Jacket recruit woman sailor, the large history wall, and the mast and compass on the deck of which the statues and mast stand. It's a beautiful tribute to the men and women who began their Navy careers at Recruit Training Command Orlando Florida.

With thousands of former recruits and company commanders spanning a 26-year history, our reunions and events will reunite many boot camp friends and companies for years to come.
