  Seaman Recruit - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Seaman Recruit is the lowest enlisted rank in the U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard, just below Seaman Apprentice; this rank was formerly known as Seaman Third Class.
Barring cases of demotion, seaman recruits are almost exclusively found in basic training, as advancement to Seaman Apprentice is mostly automatic, shortly after completion of basic training.
Seaman recruits do not bear any uniform rank insignia (although at one time they did, in the form of one diagonal stripe, which the coast guard still uses for their E-1s), which would normally be worn on the left sleeve.

This period of training lasts eight weeks, at the end of which time, the apprentice seaman is entitled to seven days leave plus two days travel time prior to assignment to his regular duties in the Navy, provided that he has sufficient funds to defray expenses of travel, and that his conduct has been satisfactory.
The apprentice seaman will be instructed to write home frequently, but if he fails to do this, his parents should not be greatly disturbed, for in case of serious illness they will be notified immediately.

After the Sept. 11 attacks, Seaman Ludwig wrote in his e-mail, the crew of the Cushing was woken up for an “all hands” meeting on deck, so officers could figure out who was on board and who was on liberty.
