Action Alert – Sullivans Division Sea Cadet Newsletter – October 2019

From The Desk Of The CO

Great Job on the PRT last month, this month will be the last chance you get to complete it. You must have a completed PRT to be part of the program and attend any training.
Information on upcoming events and our Annual Holiday Banquet are in this newsletter, please make sure you read everything and respond accordingly.
This is our last drill aboard the Ships and there will be NO OVERNIGHT. If you are going to the Acorn run please read the details below on report time etc.

URGENT Medical/Dues
Medical Exams may be no more than 1 year old, if your child is due for a physical please make sure you have a new medical exam filled out and brought to drill. If your child does not have current medical information on file they will not be able to participate in drill, trainings and can be terminated from the program. This also goes for their ID needing to be current or the same outcome will happen.
