US Naval Sea Cadet Corps, Quonset Point, RI

Fourth of July Parade


On the 4th of July, 2003, NCBC Cadets marched in one of the biggest Independence Day events in New England - the Norwood, Massachusetts parade. It was the first time in recent memory where Navy uniforms were seen in this parade (and the first time ever that Sea Cadets had ever participated), and the cheers from the crowds lining the parade route were inspiring.
