Action Alert – Sullivans Division Sea Cadet Newsletter – November 2019

From The Desk Of The CO

It’s that time of year again, it is BLUE’s Season! All Sea Cadets must try on their blues!

  1. If they fit; wear them to Drill 02NOV and bring your NWU’s.
  2. If they don’t fit; wear your NWU’s and bring your Blues to swap out.
  3. If you don’t own any you will be the first to be outfitted.

    League cadets are to wear their Winter Salt and Peppers (long sleeved white shirt) to drill. This includes your tie which is to be worn whenever you wear your dress uniform. Bring your
    NWU’s to change into after inspection.

    All of you are to shine those shoes, cut that hair and press that uniform. I expect all of you to be picture perfect.

    Also; as a reminder everyone must have an ID to enter the NOSC.
    If you are new let them know at the gate that you will be receiving your new ID today at drill.
    If you are expired; let them know at the gate that your new ID will be handed out to you at drill.
