Claude M. Ravenell Jr., the son of Celestine and Claude M. Ravenell of Pineville, recently enlisted in the United States Navy under the Delayed Entry Program.
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.
Ravenell is a 2002 graduate of Timberland High School and a 2007 graduate of Claflin College.
