Hello NCBC!!!


I stop in on the site every so often to check up on my beloved division! I am so happy to see that it is still running strong under CO Kerwood! I wish I had the time to be involved with you as much as I have seen some of my old fellow cadets have, however I have been really busy with school and now a new organization Alpha Sigma Tau. I am so glad that you guys are really involved and keeping busy! I hope that there are still many summer trainings availible to broaden your horizens! Take avantage of it b/c they bring you above the rest! I always talk of cadets and give NCBC as much PR as I can now that public relations is in my blood. Have fun guys and I hope one day to stop back in and see many new faces and old! Untill then may you have safe and sound waters cadets! Also, thank you to the officers there, I dont know many of you but I appreciate what you are doing for this division! Do not hessitate to shoot me an email, Keep in touch.

If anyone would like to do it again, please e-mail me and let me know what, in addition to what we have already done, you would like to do. I will be around for the rest of this year, so expect to see me at drill.

I just got back from EOD training. It was tough yet worth it. If any of the cadets are interested in EOD or any other SPEC Warfare training such as SEAL's, SWCC, or EOD, I will help them get into the training. These three trainings always compete with each other VIA classes. This year we beat the SEAL's and the SWCC. So any one interested in these three trainings contact me VIA E-mail. HOOYAH!!!

We need more RECRUITS!!!!! WE just got about four or five more cadets but that's not enough!! I'll be calling all cadets & petty officers asking about their recruiting progress. Yes, recruiting is EVERYONE'S JOB!! Don't rely on the officers or other cadets. I don't want to hear: "oh yeah i've got lots of kids," or "I think he/she might join." I want recruits and we've more events planned, like the Strawberry Festival Fly-in on the last meeting this month. Cadets will be able to pig out on all kinds of food and drink. So go out and get me those cadets!

I'm working in our Tactical Operations Center as the night Battle Captain getting things ready for upcoming missions. Had a moment on the computer and wanted to send off a quick note. Hope everybody is well and keeping grades up. Wish I was there for the C-130J ride. Have to go getting busy. All stay safe and well.

Hey Cadets. As most of you already know, I have enlisted with the Army Reserves. I am in the process of transferring from cadet to staff so you guys will not be missing me heh. I would like to thank the "veteran" cadets of the unit for showing me the ropes and teaching me new things, as well as broaden myself socially. I would like to thank the staff, mainly Mr. Kerwood for their wise insight into making decisions and developing myself professionaly. I would not have gotten to this point without all of your support. I leave for basic on June 15th 2005 and will not be back until November 2005 or later. I wish all Cadets the best of luck, and to keep working with the NSCC and make the unit a good one to be a part of. On that note.....see you folks bright and early Saturday mornings!

I am attempting to re-activate an inactive unit here in Massachusetts. I would like to hear from cadets and staff regarding what brought their attention to the Sea Cadet Corps and any suggestions as to how to generate interest and find prospective recruits.

Thanks

To anyone who did not attend the last meeting, listen up. The Drill dates will be changed to Saturdays and other alternating dates. The specifics are in the works, but I will post any news about it. If you have any problems, contact any of the Petty-Officers and/or Unit Staff. To make this work we need EVERYONE TO SHOW UP!!!. See all of you after the Holiday break.

Shipmates:

I enjoy your website and I too applaud the success of your Division. Having been in the Corps since 1975, I've seen the rise, fall and reincarnation of your ship's company. Bravo Zulu! Just a reminder: it's not an ORI ("Operational Readiness Inspection," nor an ORE - "Operational Readiness Exercise," nor is it known by any other appellation than "Flagship Competition," to which GOSNOLD Division will be only too happy to host you in the Spring).

I must say it almost brings a tear to my eye to see NCBC doing so well. I was in the unit from 1991 - 1994, and saw the rise and fall of the unit. Everything from building C-116, to the Sea Bee Club meeting out of a Quonset Hut, to finally what looks like (still) your current meeting location. We were there participating in the closing of the base, which was truly a sad time. I watched as unit numbers dwindled down from a strong unit to next to nothing. I left the unit in '94, as the LPO to start my college life at Norwich, like some of the other unit's members. I made several visits my freshman year, but it just didn't look like the unit would survive. Again, I can't stress enough how great it is to see so much effort put back into the unit...if I can help out in any way, please feel free to contact me at the listed e-mail address. Thanks again, and good luck at ORI!!!!!

Hey guys. To all the people who are not showing up on Fridays, listen up. You will have to start showing up if you want to go to ORI and other events. Also, if you have no excuse for being absent, you will lose drill points as well as not get credit. If you have any questions, comments, conserns, or pleas for mercy, call me at my home phone.

Hey y'all. Ben Pino and myself just came back from a great training. Lt. Hull's MAA Acadamy was one of the best advanced trainings I have ever been to and I highly recommend it. You will learn more than just the basics in law enforcement, and it is a lot of fun. You do a LOT of PT and you are busy almost 24/7, but trust me, you will have a great time if anyone goes to the Academy next year. See you in September.

Hello fellow seacadets! (weird entry)

I've just finished my first summer training and soon will be leaving for my next training. I would recommend these airman trainings to all the E-2s out there getting ready for advancment. Here you stay at a Navy Lodge, hotel rooms, cable t.v., showers and other bathroom needs, snack machines, free coffee and hot chocolate, a bus ride to everything, not too bad chow, and you get to work on tearing down P-3 engines! There are simulaters of flying planes and helicopters. There a lot more too. The only downside is that you have to wake youself and your bunkmate (who sleeps in another room) up at 0500. P.T. is at 0510. Good luck.

Just wanted to say a hearty WELCOME ABOARD! to our new cadets and congrats to NLCC Cadet Richmond on his promotion to PO3 last night. The summer will be a busy one, cadets going to recruit and advanced training camps all over the US, as well as activities planned for our unit here at Quonset. Again, my hats off to our outstanding CO, CWO-2 Kerwood on a job well done! May God continue to bless him as he leads us in our efforts to become better human beings by providing us the training and allowing us to participate in numerous community events, as well as meeting new and interesting people! Let us seek to show our gratitude by doing what is asked, attending drills regularly, and being the best Cadet Division we can be in all aspects! A note for all of you who attended last night's drill: THE SARGE IS BACK TO STAY, AND IN UNIFORM! How great it felt to be wearing it again after 12 long years! Keep up the good work, everyone and see you all again real soon!

Since boot camp was cancelled at Cape Cod, I will now be staffing the one in Amityville, NY(Spelling?) as a Company Officer and I am looking forward to seeing you bunch of fresh Rics there and also some of you returning as staff.

A hearty congratulations to all Cadets on what turned out to be the best inspection our Unit has ever had in it's history. 3.46 out of 4.0 overall and 4.0 on uniform inspections and military subjects. Great Job Cadets! Your efforts and hard work definitely paid off. As your Communications Instructor and Operations Officer I just want to say how proud I am of each of you and look forward to a 4.0 overall rating next year. I and your CO know you can do this and we will be right there beside you helping you each step of the way. Anchors aweigh, NCBC! Job well done by all!

Hey Y'all. The inspection is coming up, so it would be a really good idea to get your uniforms as perfect as you can get them. If anyone needs ANYTHING come see me on Friday, I'll be there early. Let's make this unit look good. Oh ya, if anyone gets out of school early enough, it would help us alot if you could get there early so we could get some last minute, heavy cleaning done. Good luck, and stay sane.

It's amazing the progress this unit has made in the many years I have been here. Starting out as a recruit with about 8 people here, now moving on up to PO2 and ALPO, I see over 20. It's incredible. Since I have joined, I have done so many unique activities, and I would like to thank CWO2 Kerwood for making the most recent events possible. It has been a fun few years, but I'm not leaving yet. I have every intention of returning as a Midshipman next year. Sorry, you can't seem to get rid of me. I hope everyone is having as much fun as I am with this program. Now for less formal stuff. For you new people, some of the best parts of this program are the summer trainings and liberty. CG Port Ops. Best training I've been to. A lot of hands on stuff, and a lot of time on boats. So if you get seasick, don't go. Otherwise, definitely consider it for after boot camp. Can't wait for ORI, it's gonna be lots of fun. Well, that's all I have to say right now, I suppose I will see most of you at drill. Hooyah

Able Cadet Wakefield, I read your message on our Deck Log and as I read, I was startled to realize that there were other programs like ours. I looked at your unit's site, and I also saw that our units have their differences. It was odd at first, but when you think, they're not that much different, a mental hurdle is leaped. I would like to know more about your unit, and about your part of the world. Thanks for your entry, I can't wait to hear from you again.

Almost every night when I go to cadets I see a new face and find out new information to how we are growing and blooming into this powerful and dedicated unit. I am thankful for everything that our now new CO has done for us and see how every night we are pulling closer and closer together as a team and as a US Naval Sea Cadet Unit!!!

How is everyone? Im cool. Well, anyway, I just wanted to say how awesome this unit is. Everyone is nice and when it comes down to what the unit is really about all you people put forth one-hundred effort into making you guys the best sea cadet unit in the state. My two visits, have been a blast and I have walked out not only filled with more knowledge but also like an idoit.(this is when pt happens). Well, I must go now and practice my cherry pickers so, I hope to see you all soon.

TO ALL CADETS AND STAFF:

It is indeed an honor and a pleasure for me to be an integral part of NCBC as your new Communications Instructor! Thank you all for your warm welcome this past Friday night when I was sworn in, and I hope that I can pass on a lot of useful information to each one of you, information that was gleaned from 18 1/2 years of active duty in the USAF and my total of 49 years of life in this world. If any of you ever have a question, comment, or just want to talk about anything, please come to see me. I am never too busy to talk to you! Chances are I have already been there, done that, and can give you some valuable advice. Thanks again for bringing me on board and I swear that I will do my duty to the Corps (not corpse)as a whole, and to you the US Naval Sea Cadets of NCBC, Quonset Point, RI! Anchors, aweigh!

hi to all cadets and staff,

i have been looking at the web site and well me being in the Australian navy cadets noticed that well we almost do the same thing. I know from talking to your commander that some cadets have expressed an interest in international Sea Cadet programs, to see what life is like elsewhere. well i think that you should realy have a go if you do why not come to my unit ( T.S Derwent in tasmania ) you are sore welcome
