US Naval Sea Cadet Corps, Quonset Point, RI

JPK Weekend, Battleship Cove, MA


From 17 through 19 November, 2006, NCBC Cadets joined with their shipmates from throughout the southeast New England region for a weekend of shipboard orientation and fun. The location of the weekend event was the US Navy destroyer Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr. (DD 850), a GEARING-class Korean War vintage destroyer that now serves as a museum ship at the world famous Battleship Cove naval heritage museum in Fall River, MA.

More than 80 Sea Cadets took part in the JPK Weekend, arriving Friday evening and living aboard the ship through Sunday afternoon. In addition to getting a taste of shipboard life, Cadets received instruction on ship structure, fire and safety systems, and participated in fire and casualty drills. This recurring event, held several times each year, was hosted by the resident Sea Cadet unit aboard the KENNEDY, the Joseph P. Kennedy Division of the NSCC, skippered by LTjg Ernest D. Hutcherson.
