What It Means to Be a Chief
By Chief Petty Officer Lacy

To be a Chief is to lead by example. I have learned so many invaluable lessons in my journey to accepting the honor of holding the title of “Chief.” I have learned what it means to work hard for something that you want. From the day that I signed my name on the USNSCC application, I was determined to become a Chief in Lone Star Squadron. When I joined, I was told that there had only been one female Chief Petty Officer in the history of the unit. After hearing that statement, I resolved that I would do the thing that few had done before.

Over the past four years, I have learned the value of teamwork, and I have seen the beauty of camaraderie. I have learned that in order to be a leader, you must first know what it is like to be a follower. I’ve learned that some goals may take a lot of determination and grit to achieve, but when you reach them, it is so worth it.

One of the most important lessons that I have learned so far in my experience in Sea Cadets is the importance of leading by example. No matter your position, title, or job, there will always be someone looking up to you. As a CPO, you’re expected to set an example for other cadets, and my journey through the ranks of Sea Cadets has not only taught me HOW to be a good example, but it has given me the opportunity to BE one. I’m so grateful for all of the wisdom that I have gained through Sea Cadets, but I know that there is so much more to learn, and I can’t wait to keep learning and keep leading.

For sixty years, Sea Cadets has given thousands of young men and women a head start on life by giving them skills, knowledge and confidence. Our cadets are ready to be productive, responsible Americans because we challenge them and teach them values.

Sea Cadets gives everyone in our corps a solid appreciation for the maritime services, and while not required, many young men and women join the armed forces. Regardless of where the winds blow, our cadets are prepared for adventure.

Our rigorous "Sea Cadet Experience" teaches cadets to think on their feet, work as a team, and live a life dedicated to cultivating the values of honor, respect, commitment, and service. In Sea Cadets, young men and women have a chance to try new things, fail in a safe environment, and try again. By ultimately succeeding, our cadets learn perseverance and develop confidence.

The United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps (USNSCC) is a maritime based youth program sponsored by the U.S. Navy and supported by the U.S. Coast Guard. Cadets train on naval bases and other military installations in a variety of military disciplines.

We are dedicated to helping shape leaders with character. In a typical year, the program serves 6,000 cadets ages 10-18, in approximately 400 units across the country, as well as in Guam and Puerto Rico. These units operate year-round, holding monthly drills, performing in parades, participating in encampments, and attending special events.

While not in a Navy uniform, Lt. Cmdr. William Ricketts wears a badge as a deputy sheriff at the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office. He is currently the operations officer at Task Force 59, where he coordinates and plans events and exercises with unmanned systems.

Ricketts is a reservist originally from Lilburn, Georgia. He now calls Spartanburg, South Carolina, his home where his wife and 13-year-old son are eagerly awaiting his return.

Serving in the military for over 17 years, he originally commissioned in the Army as a field artillery officer. He switched to the Navy to be a naval flight officer on F/A-18 Super Hornets and transitioned from active duty to the reserves in 2017.

“It's been an amazing journey for the past eight and a half months I've been out here,” said Ricketts. “I've learned a lot and what I’ve been able to do is pretty cool and will be unforgettable work.”
