Where are you going for training, Great Lakes? What job are you going to train for? In the Army it is MOS Military Occupational Specialty. I don't know what the Navy calls it. I really don't have any tips on what to study with out a violin. There are some videos in the Beginner's section that deal with how to hold the bow, how to hold the violin, how to apply rosin, how to draw the bow on the strings, and many more.
You can find these HERE
I think you will be playing "Country Road" before too long. Good choice!
Oh, another thing you can do without a violin is listen to violin music! Or Country Road. Let it soak into you!
Good luck, always know where a floatation device is and where the nearest exit is as well. Of course in the Navy you are expected to fight any fire on board, so you better know where your fire control station is too.
