Bulls host Navy swearing-in ceremony

Team partners with Naval Station Great Lakes to sponsor third Bulls’ recruiting

March 16, 2011—On Tuesday, before the Chicago Bulls took on the Washington Wizards, the team hosted a swearing-in ceremony for more than 90 Navy recruits on the United Center court.

The recruits will be a part of the 2011 Chicago Bulls Sponsor Division. This will be the third year the team has sponsored a Navy recruitment division and the ceremony included recruits from across the Chicagoland area.

Basic training for the Chicago Bulls Division will last approximately eight weeks at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes. They will remain together as a single Chicagoland unit proudly displaying the Bulls Division banner wherever they go.

After the ceremony, the recruits and their families stayed to watch the game.

The Bulls are the only NBA team to sponsor a Navy Recruit Division.
