The Central Iowa Division of the Naval Sea Cadet Corps is holding a new member Informational Open House at 6:15 p.m. April 3.
This open house will be held at the Marshalltown Public Library, 105 W Boone St, Community Room B. Parents and prospective cadets are invited.
Sea Cadets is a leadership and adventure program for youth ages 11-17 who have a desire to learn about the Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine. Depending on the rate achieved in the Naval Sea Cadets, former cadets may be eligible to enlist in the armed forces at an advanced pay grade. Being a member honorably discharged from the Sea Cadet Corps is looked upon favorably by selection boards for military academies and ROTC programs.
Two one-year initial memberships will be drawn for by those attending and committing to join the program at this event. Those interested in enrollment should bring a copy of their immunization record and have the prospective cadet's social security card available.
