In certain parts of America, the local unit represents our nation’s Navy — and they do this very well. Through untold hours of community service, our cadets honor our nation's veterans and make their communities more beautiful. Our cadets embody the fundamentals of citizenship and the value of being responsible and productive members of their communities. It's no secret that our program prides itself on being part of the Navy, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine families. We believe that training received as a cadet helps to shape capable and competent Sailors and Officers for our maritime services and merchant marine. Each cadet who enlists or seeks a commission is a disciplined, well-trained individual. Our cadets and alumni often cite the feelings of pride, respect, and honor associated with their experience in the program. These immeasureable benefits are very important as they bond and stregthen our communities.
