Action Alert – Sullivans Division Sea Cadet Newsletter – MAY 2020

From The Desk of the CO

Greetings from My Livingroom

I hope everyone is healthy and happy. I know you are all being overrun with schoolwork and web meetings etc. I am sure your parents are looking forward to life getting back to business as usual. I hope you would also like to get back on the ships and prepare for summer trainings.
Yes, summer trainings are starting to be cancelled. All the Early summer trainings have been cancelled at this time. July and after are still being considered along with some web-based trainings, Local Trainings etc.
The web-based trainings are so far,
Virtual Training: Virtual advanced training opportunities will be available for cadets including firefighting, arson investigation, crime scene investigation & forensic science, culinary arts, naval history, emergency management, seamanship which includes virtual tours of multiple ships, marine science, and more! Cadets can take as many of these virtual trainings as they want but only two can be used for promotion credit. Be sure to check the training list on Homeport on 01 May for virtual offerings.

Virtual Drills: Coming soon NHQ will be offering a template for units or individuals to use to participate in virtual unit drill activities. This template will provide an opportunity for cadets to virtually participate in
many activities that typically occur at unit drills, all while maintaining healthy safe social distancing measures. Stay tuned for more details in our next weekly update.

ALERT: Several emails have been sent recently and almost no cadet has responded to them! These emails are important and all communication from the Division is to be returned minimally as at least “received”.
Petty Officers need to check in with cadets and make sure messages are being received.

PRT! An Email was sent out with PRT information and no-one replied as received. Your time is running out to complete the PRT as described or you will not be qualified for trainings of any type and your next promotion may be held up.

The Division will have information coming out soon for better communication, news and projects for you to complete. Now is the time for you to stand out from the rest! Send ideas for things we can do or ways to improve the training now and when we are able to return to business. I truly hope you and your families are doing great and let’s hope this ends soon.

Executive Officer Message
Greetings! I hope this finds you all healthy and safe. I am sure most of you are growing tired and frustrated with this stand still. I know I am. People big and small were meant to move, do things, and be active. I think this is why it is so frustrating to us to stay at home. The first thing we do while still infants is try to move, we learn to crawl, later as we get older we want to move more, we learn to walk. The more we move the more we become active and explore. We run, harnessed animals to ride, designed ships and cars to send us further and faster, we learned how to move about the skies and eventually space. People have a desire to move it sets us free.

This is why the “time out” is an effective discipline tool for parents. It is designed to stop our kids in place, keeps them safe, and allows them time to think about their actions. That’s what we should be doing with this time we have now, be safe and think about things. This will come to an end, but what have you learned? Unlike a discipline “time out” where we need to think about corrective actions, instead we can think about what we want to see from our fresh start. We can think about what positives have come from this period, there are some I know I’ve had some GREAT times with my family. We can think about what we can do to improve upon ourselves and the things around us when we start back up.

Unlike the traditional “time out” I gave my children, in this period we can still do some things, just not in the same fashion. As I write this now, two of your shipmates have already tested from the comfort of their homes towards their advancement. Several more of you can do the same. Also at this time two of you have performed the PRT and sent back their cards, well done! You cannot advance, or attend trainings without the PRT and after 15MAY20 you will not have another opportunity till October. Many of you have handed in coursework and submitted entries into our various projects. I salute all of you who have done so. On Tuesday 28APR20 at 19:30 there will be a ZOOM meeting for the entire Sullivans Division. For most of you it will be the first time since March that you’ve seen some of your shipmates. Plan on attending this chance to see, and share with your shipmates.

This is a depressing time; “time outs” are never a happy, fun filled time. You have the power inside you to make it the best learning opportunity you can. You can begin to move slowly towards a better future when we get back by taking advantage of as many “opportunities” as you can right now. No they are not like we are used to doing it and some seem really dumb and meaningless, but they help keep us together as a unit and point us to a time we can be free to RUN.

Stay safe, be healthy, and participate where you can.

Action Alert – Sullivans Division Sea Cadet Newsletter – APRIL 2020

From The Desk Of The CO

As you are all aware by now, the April drill has been cancelled along with all other events. Information comes in fast, furious and frequently. We have been also notified by the Navel Park of their intentions to open the Park on or about May, 15th if this continues. If this does happen and the all clear is given by HQ, we are looking into other options for May Drill unless the Park changes the opening date. (At this time) all summer training will be going forward but are subject to change. If you sign up for a training that requires travel, purchase refundable tickets. Please look for emails from the Division for future information. The Sullivans officers are working hard to prepare for whatever comes up next. I hope you are all well and healthy. Please remember to get ready for the PRT in the near future. Do not wait to get prepared for the test, you are only hurting yourself. We all hope to have drill at the earliest opportunity allowed so we can continue to go full speed ahead. Stays focused and continue to send in coursework and prepare classes. Remember that ‘We Stick Together” and notify the Division with any issues or questions.

Compliments;
LCDR Todd A. Caughill

Greetings. I hope this finds you all healthy and safe. This is a very strange, anxious, and possibly scary time for some of you. Trust the processes that are in place and know together we will all get through this. I ask that you all check on each other making sure your shipmates are healthy and doing well. Please pass up anything that anyone may need, we are here to help where we can.

I would like to pass along some congratulations and well wishes to LCDR Joseph Pawli on his appointment to Regional director! We will surly miss his direct leadership here as CO of the Sullivans division, but I know he will do great things in his new position. Also congratulations to LCDR Todd Caughill on his appointment to CO of the Sullivans division! I personally look forward to serving with you, and know we have some new and exciting ideas in the time ahead. Finally I would like to extend congratulations to Chief Petty Officer Bianca Foeller. Chief Foeller was selected out of the entire country to represent the Sea Cadets in Australia. There was plenty of competition to go on this trip and to be selected was a huge honor! Unfortunately due to the Corona Virus pandemic the trip had to be cancelled, but it does not make her selection any less significant. Please take a moment to congratulate her. Finally I would like to congratulate all of you on a job well done with our annual inspection, and the change of command ceremony. You all looked and performed very well.

Our drill schedule is not defined at this moment due to the health concerns that are still in place. Things change quickly and I ask that you be ready to move out on a moment notice. We will give as much notice as we can as to where and when the drill will be. In the mean, time please work on your course work, submitting up your chain via email. Also we WILL be doing the PRT when we get back to drill so work on this at home now where you can safely.

Please stay safe and healthy, always at ready to drill. Keep in touch with your shipmates and pass along any needs or requests.

Compliments;
LTJG Richard J. Ryan
Executive Officer
The Sullivans Division / Training Ship Little Rock

Important Information

Cancellation of April Drill – As you all know by now April drill is cancelled. The move to the ships is on hold till we have more information from the NOSC as to when we can get in to move our stuff. As of right now May drill is still a go with our first overnight on the ships.
PRT – Everyone will need to be at May drill to complete their PRT; you need this to attend drill and trainings. We will not have time to make it up so again YOU MUST BE AT DRILL. For those of you who did not do well last year or just passed take this time to work on your PRT. Do a few sit ups or push-ups every day. If it’s nice outside go for a run. Let’s have everyone pass on the first try this time.
Dress Uniforms – Sea Cadets are to bring their Dress Whites and League Cadets are to bring their summer salt and peppers to May Drill for inspection and exchange if needed. (Upon confirmation of May drill)

A Few Thoughts

I wanted to take a moment and thank LCDR Joseph Pawli for his leadership and commitment to the Sullivans Division all these years. We have always said this program is for the cadets and have fought for the concept every day. LCDR Pawli in fact, will not be leaving us totally and will remain with the Division. From time to time he will have to devote his efforts to his newly appointed position as our Regional Director; a position that was earned and is well deserved. As a friend and colleague, I say Bravo Zulu sir and the future looks to remain bright for us and the Sea Cadets organization.

To the staff and cadets of the Sullivans Division; I wish to also say that you are without a doubt the most dedicated and cadet-oriented staff of any Division. I appreciate all that you do for the Division and look forward to a continued productive relationship. I am excited about all the plans in the future starting with our trip to Canada. A few of you have already spoken with me about new ideas going forward and I welcome all input from the officer staff as well as our cadets.
Let’s have a great Fundraiser on Saturday and enjoy our friends and family before getting back to business. It is important for all cadets to be prepared and ready to shine.

Compliments;
LCDR Todd A. Caughill

Action Alert – Sullivans Division Sea Cadet Newsletter – September 2019

From The Desk Of The CO

Summer is gone!
I hope everyone enjoyed their summer and has had a great start to the new school year. Just a reminder to anyone who may not have turned in your report card back in June to get your academic ribbon or star this will be the last month to turn it in for last school year. What do you need to achieve to get this ribbon? For every two marking periods you are on honor roll you will get the ribbon for the first time and afterwards the corresponding appurtenance.

We have lots coming up these next few months. PRT will be held this drill, you must pass the PRT in order to stay in the program and attend trainings so I hope you are ready.

Acorn Run will be October 4th & 5th: More information will be handed out at September drill.

Who wants to go to Canada? We have been invited to a joint training with the Navy League Cadets that we hosted at July Drill and there will also be a Division of the Sea Cadets there this time. This will happen at June 2020 Drill. There will be a cost to this trip so we are looking to do some fundraising in the future to offset the cost to the cadets. Plus we should hopefully have the photos of July’s event by October drill.

Make sure you check out the Upcoming Drill in the newsletter, as we now have the drill dates till September 2020. So moving forward I do not want to hear from anyone they did not know when drill was. Take the page print it out and stick it to your fridge.

Also, I want a list at next drill of who is interested in Winter Training – MUST BE A SEA CADET. We will need 4-6 Staff Cadets (you must have attended POLA to be a staff Cadet) There will be 14 open spots for anyone who needs a training for advancement, remember you can bank trainings! Please see LT Melanie Pawli after morning muster if interested.

Did you have a yearly Physical Exam over the past few months or are you due soon? Make sure you get a new completed medical exam form filled out by your doctor. We must have a current form on file for you to attend drill. This goes also for any cadet that takes prescription medicine; you must have a new completed medical supplemental on file. I have attached both forms for your convenience.

Sea Bag List
REMEMBER, even if it is not an overnight drill, you are still required to have a sea bag with the necessary contents.
Meals are $15 per cadet for the weekend.
Please make sure you have your money.
Exact change is preferred. Thank you.

Action Alert – Sullivans Division Sea Cadet Newsletter – July 2019

From The Desk Of The CO

Making History!!!

Remember July Drill is going to be a Joint drill with Canadian Cadets and their Officers, there will be some ceremonial doings on the pier side at the Pavilion on Saturday and Sunday. Sea Cadets bring your Whites and Leaguers bring your Salt and Peppers. We may have a visit from a 2 star Admiral as well. We will conduct our drill as usual with our classes, but we will be learning about the Canadian cadet customs as we will provide them with our customs in return as well as drill and ceremony. This is proving to be a very interesting drill and we would like all hands to report. After this Drill is our National Summer Training, which should go very well; then we roll right into our August drill and don’t forget we will be doing a mass causality drill with them over August drill so more Fun!!!
