A U.S. Navy training film titled 'You're Navy now' about the recruitment and training of sailors in U.S. Navy during World War 2. Opening scene shows a tram at the Inter-urban trolley station near the gate of the Great Lakes Naval Training Center, during World War 2. Arriving recruits in civilian clothes step from the trolley cars as sailors in uniform wait to board. A Petty Officer instructs the newcomers to follow him. A Petty Officer, second class, and his friend, stand on the trolley platform and comment about the new recruits, as they walk past. The recruits follow their guide into the center and walk across the campus. A Wave (woman sailor) in uniform is seen walking on another path. One recruit remarks: "Look at the lady sailor." On their way, the recruits see a contingent of sailors marching in formation. Scene shifts to the barracks where the new recruits are settling in. Interior parts of the barracks are labeled with naval terms, such as "passage way,"instead of hall. One recruit peeks inside door marked,"Crews Head." Recruits make the best of their first night in the barracks, trying to rest, playing cards, and thinking. The next day they are lined up outside a building. Next, inside that building they are instructed to prepare labels to ship their civilian belongings home. They disrobe and walk up a stairway to be checked by doctors and dentists, who check their eyes, teeth, and vital signs (blood pressure). One stands up for a chest X-ray. View inside the Training Center hospital. Recruits seen donning new white uniforms, and later going "below,"in work uniforms.
