U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps
The United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps (USNSCC or NSCC) is a congressionally-chartered, U.S. Navy-based organization that serves to teach individuals about the sea-going military services, U.S. naval operations and training, community service, citizenship, and an understanding of discipline and teamwork. The USNSCC is composed of two programs – the senior program for cadets age 13 through the age of 18, or the Navy League Cadet Corps (NLCC), which is for cadets ages 10 through 13.
Naval Sea Cadets fly to Washington DC with veterans on the 2016 Honor Flight.
Four cadets served as assistants to the traveling veterans and their guardians. Loading and unloading luggage and wheelchairs at each stop of the memorial tour. The cadets also performed the color guard each night before supper.
The USS Benfold Division is based out of Crystal Lake Illinois. Members of the Benfold Division have worked closely with the VNC and serve on the Tattered Flag Committee.
The Division locates and replaces tattered flags in the area throughout the year. Each year cadets fundraise for the Honor Flight contributing to the bottom line.
