We are excited about partnering with the National Museum of the Pacific War for our September drill. The museum is a truly moving and informative tribute to the veterans of World War 2 in the Pacific Theater. Our cadets will not only be able to experience the museum as visitors, but they will be staying overnight at the museum and exploring the museum's Pacific Combat Zone.
Cadets will not want to miss this drill. Our volunteers are working on finalizing transportation plans and schedules, and the POD will be published at least a week before. We hope that all of our cadets will join us at this amazing museum in Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz's hometown.
With school starting again, and the Sea Cadets nearly done with summer training, it is time for drills to start up again. Our first drill will be August 10-11. The POD is available on the Shutterfly site, and on the battalion website homepage. This will be a fun drill, beginning with swim qualifications (and hopefully some waterslide runs). On Sunday we will have a STEELBEACH picnic at the NOSC for cadets, parents and visitors.
There should be a good number of prospective recruits in attendance. This is a great time to join, because recruits will have plenty of time to start their BMR work and earning their uniform before the winter holidays. If you have friends who are interested in becoming a sea cadet, send them to our "Join Us" page for instructions.
We hope to see everyone at drill to catch up with shipmates and exchange their summer sea stories.
