February Annual Inspection & Orion Parade

It's that time of year again - Annual Inspection!!  On Saturday, the Baton Rouge Division had a good turn out and cadet looked good.  Prior to the inspection party's arrived cadets made preparations and last minute touchups to their uniforms. RD Reeder and LTJG Perez arrived and conducted the inspection. The division passed inspection overall and cadets performed facing movements with precision and expertise. Good job cadets!

On Sunday, the Baton Rouge Division honor guard led the Orion Parade through the streets of downtown Baton Rouge. These cadets represented the Division with distinction and honor. Thank you cadets for your service.

January Drill at Camp King

The Baton Rouge Div held monthly drill and had a good turnout.  Cadets prepped for annual inspection, updated their ribbon racks, pressed and rolled neckerchiefs. Cadets practiced facing movements and more.

For several weeks prior to drill, the adults planned and plotted a 2+ mile compass course with several different way points along the way.  The cadets were divided into three teams and each team started at a different time.  Each team was issued tactical gear and course directions.  

Former recruits participated in the ceremonial recruit cover retirement ceremony to symbolize becoming full cadets and never having to wear recruit covers again. 

January Repelling Training With St. George Fire Department

Baton Rouge Sea Cadets participated in a training evolution that required them to rappel off a three story building!!  After some classroom time cadets went hands on learning the science of rappelling and also how to control their fear!  Even Mr. Jones rappelled!!  Thank You St George Fire Dept.
