The Central Iowa Division of the Naval Sea Cadet Corps is a part of a national organization with more than 260 local units for boys and girls ages as young as 11 years old who have a desire to learn about the Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, and the Merchant Marine. Sea Cadets are authorized by the Secretary of the Navy to wear Navy uniforms appropriately marked with Sea Cadet Corps insignia.
The objectives of the Sea Cadet program are to introduce youth to naval life, to develop a sense of pride, patriotism, courage, self-reliance, and to maintain an environment free of drugs and gangs. Cadets meet one weekend a month and have the opportunity to participate in training activities around the world.
