Our Mission “…through organization and cooperation with the Department of the Navy, to encourage and aid American youth to develop, train them in seagoing skills, and to teach them patriotism, courage, self-reliance and kindred virtues.” - NSCC Charter – 36 USC 1541

The U.S. Naval Sea Cadet program may very well be "the best-kept secret in America". Established by act of Congress, sponsored by the Navy League of the U.S. and supported by the US Navy, we and other Sea Cadet and League Cadet units around the country provide young Americans opportunities to learn the values of naval history and traditions, patriotism, courage, self-reliance and kindred virtues. We espouse the U.S. Navy's core values: "Honor, Courage, Commitment".

Forrestal Squadron (Naval Sea Cadet Corps, ages 13-17) has been operating in the Dallas-Fort Worth area since 1962 and Training Ship Ranger (Navy League Cadet Corps, ages 11-14) since 1958. Both units are among the oldest in America. Feel free to browse and visit the links to Navy League, Sea Cadets, and other interesting naval, military and historical sites.

Member Cadets, Parents, Officers and other registered dignitaries, please report aboard at the Quarterdeck to get the latest information on unit affairs, drill schedules, regulations, standing orders, training assignments, special events, etc. Please have your login information handy.

Parade Float Update

We wanted to let you know the Unit has a lot of activities coming up in the future that we are very excited about.

One of which is the Christmas Parade in which we are currently working on the Sea Cadet float and wanted to give you an update.We have had one of our parents Mr. Gomez step up to help us with this project and we greatly appreciate all he has done. He has gone out and secured donations from business's in Saginaw as well as built a good relationship with that community as we have done with the Fort Worth YMCA. We have also received a donation in materials from Home Depot in White Settlement. Mr. Gomez has agreed to have alternate weekend construction at the Riverine Compound on the base incorporated over our next 3 month calendar. We are asking for help from the parents to make sure the project is completed on time. If you can help with the build or donations of Christmas lights, parade decorations etc. please contact Mr Gomez or myself. My contact number is: (817) 789 0325or Mr. Gomez at (817) 676 3993.
