Video: U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps Has Close Ties to Santee

President of the Corps, Santee resident Warren Savage, gives a rundown on the youth maritime program.

If you're under 18 and interested in maritime activities, the Navy, or even flying, the U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps (USNSCC) is a program worth checking out.

The youth program gives an opportunity to train with and get a taste for the different programs the Navy offers to the enlisted.

"It gives youth an opportunity to see what the Navy is all about," said USNSCC President and Santee resident Warren Savage.

According to the USNSCC website, their mission is "to encourage and aid American youth to develop, train them in seagoing skills, and to teach them patriotism, courage, self-reliance and kindred virtues."

Programs exist for youth age 10 to 18, including local chances to train at Balboa Hospital, Coast Guard, go diving and even the train like at Navy Seal at Coronado.

"Cadets get a chance to get a feeling for Navy programs, rather than just listening they can actually do," said Savage.

Sea Cadet organizations exist in most of the maritime nations of the world, and the program includes a chance to interact with Sea Cadets from around the world.
