Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy Mike Stevens manages the first issuance of mobile devices to recruits during the launch of eSailor at Recruit Training Command this spring. The program provides sailors entering boot camp with wireless mobile technology for training and communications and will eventually offer access to medical records and a means to take advancement exams. The beta test will provide information on how to fully implement wireless technology throughout the fleet
