US Naval Sea Cadet Corps, Quonset Point, RI

Quonset Air Show


On the weekend of 28-29 June 2003, the Sea Cadets of NCBC Division participated in the annual Rhode Island National Guard Air Show at Quonset Point, RI. The Cadets spent two beautiful, albeit hot, days assisting personnel from Navy Recruiting District New England and engaging in Sea Cadet recruiting and fundraising efforts as well. It was an extraordinary weekend, both in sights and sounds, with the Sea Cadets getting a ringside seat to many of the events during the air show (including some events not seen by the general public). All proceeds from the Open House / Air Show are donated to charities throughout Southern New England, with the Hasbro Children's Hospital in Providence being the single greatest recipient of funds.
