20 years ago today, Joyce Bell Murtha, the official sponsor of the ship, gave the crew the command to "bring this ship to life." Upon that command, the entire ship's company double-timed into the ship to assume their stations. The ship came "alive" with the sounds of horns and bells, accompanied by the hoisting of flags. On that hot August day, the ship had officially become USS Bonhomme Richard (LHD 6), and had joined the Navy to follow in a proud and honorable tradition that began with the immortal words of Capt. John Paul Jones, who commanded the first USS Bonhomme Richard: "I have not yet begun to fight!"

Join us in celebrating Revolutionary Gator's 20th Birthday!

General information

The US Naval Sea Cadet Corps is a youth program for ages 13-18, with its sister program the Navy League Cadet Corps for ages 11-13. The Carl Stockholm Battalion is for League Cadets, who, when they turn 13, will transfer to the John F Kennedy Division as Sea Cadets. Both units meet at the Armed Forces Reserve Center, Forrest Park, IL 2 Saturdays per month. Just because you sign up in the Navy Sea Cadet Corps DOES NOT MEAN YOU HAVE TO GO INTO THE SERVICE. Many Cadets sign up for the experience and the discipline that the Sea Cadets offer. After High School you have absolutely no obligation to join the military, but if you do decide to join, you are eligible to receive a higher rank.
