This week as we celebrate the 246th birthday of the U.S. Navy, we wanted to say a special thank you to the U.S. Navy Chiefs who supported a U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps Chief pinning ceremony on Oct. 9 in Mayport, Florida. The Mayport Division, led by a retired U.S. Army Major Cassandra Peck, reached out to U.S. Navy Chiefs – who are the backbone of the U.S. Navy -- to truly make this a special moment in this young lady’s life -- Sea Cadet Chief Emily Grace Bowles. Their willingness to spend a few hours to make her day something these Sea Cadets, their families, and leadership will not soon forget. Thank you to the U.S. Navy for their support for our youth organization. In addition to the active-duty Navy Chiefs in attendance, special thanks to retired Rear Adm. George Huchting, a Navy League sponsor who also attended and gave his time, talents, and experience. Thank you.

Sharing a video featuring active-duty U.S. Marine Corps personnel involved in Sikorsky CH-53K Heavy-Lift Helicopter - High Altitude Aircraft Recovery Mission. Another aspect of this video that you would not realize right away is that it features a former Sea Cadet. Sea Cadet Chief Petty Officer William Pyles who graduated from the program is now serving with the U.S. Marine Corps. CPL Pyles was the crew chief on the CH-53K that recovered the MH-60 Knighthawk helicopter that crashed in the Sierra Nevada mountains in September 2021. Video by U.S. Marine Corps Lance Cpl.

As a youth organization, we are fortunate for our Sea Cadets and the volunteers who support our program year-round; we are also thankful for all the parents and grandparents who support their children in taking the first steps and joining our organization. Here is a quote from one of those parents who enrolled his three children into the Thomas Jefferson Division in Missouri. For today on #ThankfulTuesday, we wanted to shout out to all those parents and grandparents like Grady. Thank you for supporting your Sea Cadets so they can see the #SeacadetAdvantage.

Thanks to Fort McHenry Division and TS Constellation for hosting an impactful drill for Maryland-based Sea Cadet units this past weekend. Cadets and volunteers representing Fort McHenry Division, TS Constellation, Charette Division, Maryland Division and TS Reina Mercedes were out in force to participate in the 2021 Virtual Navy Mile. This annual run also brought together former Sea Cadets, volunteers, and new Navy League Cadets to fellowship and get fit! The annual run was a great opportunity to weave physical fitness activities into the weekend drill. Bravo Zulu to all the runners!

U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps LCDR Eugene Anastasi discusses the building of SeaPerch kits with Sea Cadets from northern and southern California on Oct. 10. Behind LCDR Anastasi in the picture is a whiteboard that features an assortment of formulas to include the importance of Ohm's Law. Ohm’s Law is fundamental to understand so as to control the speed of the SeaPerch's motor. Ohm's Law helps to calculate the amount of current flowing through the SeaPerch. By changing the amount of current, you can control the speed of the motor of your SeaPerch. How many youth organizations do you know that teach kids how to build SeaPerch underwater robots while learning about basic science and engineering? Annually our program offers more than 400 training opportunities nationwide to include monthly drills at various Sea Cadet units.

General information

A medical examination similar to a high school sports physical is required for all cadet applicants to the Naval Sea Cadet Corps (NSCC) or Navy League Cadet Corps (NLCC). No one will be denied admission to the NSCC/NLCC due to a medical disability. Where a medical condition precludes full, unlimited participation, a Request for Accommodation (NSCADM 015) may be presented by the parent or guardian for review so the cadet may participate in NSCC activities to the maximum extent possible. Adult applicants must be in good health commensurate with their age group and be free from any ailment or condition that would prevent them from satisfactorily performing their primary duty of supervising youth. NOTE: Adults not physically qualified to perform all duties may still participate with a waiver from NHQ considering the parameters of their expected contribution to the NSCC program.

What is the status of shipboard training of Cadet divisions these days? When I was a cadet in the late 60's/early 70's, I trained at the Naval Reserve Center in San Bernardino (CA) and our training ship was the USS Hooper DE-1026 based out of Long Beach Naval Station. Two week summer cruises, weekend cruises and "docksides" (didn't get underway, just worked chipping paint for two days😂) were the norm...jist wondered if Cadets still get to get underway anymore...

Some of our cadets experienced their first parade march in Annapolis - https://www.facebook.com/761242677/videos/1263837007384526/
So many wonderful images of today's cadets celebrating Independence Day. I hope they realize the advantages they have, that we didn't have back in the early days of the USNSCC. I was a cadet at NAS Miramar, Fightertown Squadron, in 76 & 77. We were constantly shuffled from one location to another and spare uniforms, such as they were, were in cardboard boxes. Nothing like the Corps of today.

Home to Gosnold Division, Massachusetts Maritime Academy's training ship Kennedy returned after her 2021 sea term! Come along with the ship as it traverses the Cape Cod Canal and to Buzzards Bay and MMA! - As a former cadet myself, I know more than a few former cadets that have made this voyage ;)
Does anyone know if they still have a Knoxville Sea Cadets? If so, when and where do they meet? I have 2 girls that would be very interested. Thank you in advanced.
