Three Sea Cadet groups visit naval station in Jacksonville

-A A +A

Led by Lieutenant Todd Dunn, three U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps divisions spent an action packed weekend on base at Naval Station Mayport. Cadets from Dunn’s Manatee Division, who drill in Yankeetown, invited the Tampa Bay Division, which drills at Mac Dill Air Force Base, and the Gulf Eagle Division, which drills in Ft. Meyers, to experience what life in the Navy might be like.
Lt. Dunn said, “It took hours of planning and coordinating, but allowing the cadets to be on base and hear firsthand about different opportunities is invaluable.” In all there were about 16 adult leaders and almost 60 cadets that made their way to Mayport on a Friday evening via carpools. Everyone was privileged to stay at the Navy Lodge right on the beach. Squads of six cadets took turns standing watch throughout the night.
At morning muster, everyone was buzzing with excitement. During reveille national anthems from Spain and Brazil also played after the United States anthem as there was a Spanish ship and a Brazilian submarine in port. After some marching and physical training cadets lined up in the mess hall for chow and were treated to pancakes, eggs and bacon.
