US Naval Sea Cadet Corps, Quonset Point, RI

Military Day, University of Rhode Island


On 15 November 2008, NCBC Sea Cadets traveled to the University of Rhode Island (URI), where they joined with marching, guard and band units from the U.S. Army, Rhode Island National Guard, and the URI ROTC contingent. The occasion was an Armed Forces salute & Military Day with URI football, with this particular football game being the last home game of the Rams' regular season. Even though the weather was not cooperating, all the Cadets and their guests braved the threatening skies and provided a superb Color Guard performance to open the game. Of particular note was the presentation of the game ball by our newest Cadet and her mother, herself being an active duty Navy Chief Hospital Corpsman, attending URI through the Naval Enlisted Science Education Program (NESEP). It was a very symbolic event, and well appeciated by the crowd who cheered wildly in the pouring rain.

The football game at Meade Stadium pitted the URI Rams against the Maine Bears in a muddy bruising battle, which ended the Rams' home season with a 37-7 loss. During the game the Cadets joined with our boating training partners, Flotilla 79 of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, Point Judith. The Cadets enjoyed a hearty tailgate lunch and relived the spectacle of watching the Sea Cadet support vehicle being pulled out of the mud by the U.S. Army (hooah!).
