  Commanding Officer's Log  

Welcome Aboard;

Visiting us may possibly be the best decision you will make as a young adult. The U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps (NSCC) dates back to 1958 when the Navy League of the United States wanted to "create a favorable image of the Navy on the part of the American youth". Since that time the program has grown to over 380 units and approximately 9,000 young men and women ages 11-17.

The Barque Eagle Division has been working with local youth since January of 1973, and we continue to grow. Our goal is to give our youth a chance to; experience the Navy and Coast Guard way of life, develop strong moral principles, good citizenship and confidence.

We have many resources to review on this website. If you think our program sounds like something you would like to experience, our membership link is for you. It could be life changing.

All Hands;

What a fantastic turn out for the Battleship Cove trip. While it does take time to establish ourselves so they know what we can do, I think we all had a pretty good time. If you've never been there before or stayed over, it was an experience. We had no problems and the staff seemed to like us since we kept asking for more to do. A huge thank you to Mrs. Canu for the great lunch we had Saturday. She cooked for all of us. Thank you to all the staff that came up and assisted. With so many Cadets now we need the help. And lastly BZ to all of the cadets for doing everything asked of them with no complaints especially with so many new Cadets

Stand by for the details on the Christmas party for the Dec 15-16 drill. That is always fun and a nice time for all of the families to get to know each other and have a fun meal.






  Special Projects  




Currently our Division is watching the track of the NOAA Drifter our Cadets took part in building. Drifting buoys are a primary tool used by the oceanographic community to measure ocean surface circulation at unprecedented resolution. A drifter is composed of a surface float, which includes a transmitter to relay data via satellite, and a thermometer that reads temperature a few centimeters below the air-sea interface.

For more information about the drifter program click here.
