FROM THE DESK OF THE CO
I can’t stress enough how important training’s are. For those of you who have not handed in your orders or payment please do so by June drill. Check your training’s website and print out the sea bag list. This drill ALL cadets attending a training must come to drill with a packed sea bag for the training(s) they are attending as we will be checking them. Parents please note if you do not have it all because you still need to purchase items that’s fine. But we must do a sea bag check and make the cadet aware of what they are missing. LABEL ALL ITEMS, this means socks underwear, shoes, boots, covers EVERYTHING!!! Please also check the site in case they have any extra forms that may need to be handed in. Some training’s have a deadline as to when paperwork has to be in by make sure you have all you need!!
This drill we will be handing out your child’s cadet record to take to the training’s. These must be signed out by a parent. This will be done immediately after Sunday Dismissal. Record Jackets MUST be returned to the Division after your child’s training.
Graduation will be held on 04 June 16 at 1400. Parents & families of graduating cadets please come join us for the celebration. We will be on the fantail of the USS LittleRock.
Keep pushing & reaching for more!

Parade starts at 2 pm and takes about 1 hour. Depending where we are in the line up you may be able to get your child as early as 3pm. Please make sure you are there by at least that time. For the past several years the CO, OX and their families have been stuck there waiting on parents to arrive and getting to our memorial day celebrations late.
