US Naval Sea Cadet Corps, Quonset Point, RI

Marine Corps Training Lecture


On 30 May 2003, the Sea Cadets of NCBC Division hosted a visit by a Staff Sergeant (SSgt) in the U.S. Marine Corps, who spoke at length on his experiences after nearly a decade of service to the nation. Of high interest to the Cadets was his training as a sniper, and the SSgt brought along several "visual aids" that allowed for a high level of interaction between himself, the Cadets, and the designated victi... um, volunteer. This Marine spent a good portion of his lecture explaining and demonstrating the Marine Corps experience, what it means to be a Marine, and giving some advice as to how best to make the transition from being a typical high school student to the Navy / Marine Corps team. Semper Fidelis -- "Always Faithful."
