Gumbo Festival 2023

Baton Rouge Sea Cadets provided an Honor Guard for the Gumbo Festival at the Livingston Parish Fairgrounds today. They got several compliments form attending veterans. Other cadets provided community service. Regional Director Reeder visited with the cadets and adults. We also had a recruiting booth where we handed out flyers and got several new prospects. Cadets got to inspect a WWII truck complete with M-2 machine guns compliments of Mr John Spinks, one of our supporters. The weather was ideal. A good time was had by all.

Drill 2023

Our first drill of 2023 is now history, but it was a good one. The cadets learned about Sexual Harassment, Fraternization, drug reduction and all those other mandatory subjects. The cadets ran a 5K adventure race, had some honor guard practice, had a class on ranks, rates and saluting, and watched a WWII war movie; a good time was had by all. Two League cadets crossed over to be sea cadets and two cadets graduated RT.

Winter Trainings 2023

Happy New Year from the Baton Rouge Division. The winter training season has been a busy time. As most were opening presents, twenty three Cadets and Adult volunteers from the Baton Rouge Division attended training across Louisiana, Florida, and South Carolina. Cadets attended Recruit Training, League Basic Orientation, Honor Guard Training and Petty Officer Leadership Academy. One cadet earned both the RT Honor Company and Meritorious Recognition ribbon for humanitarian purposes. Below are some of the pictures from the trainings attended by Cadets.

December Drill - Wreaths across America & Christmas Party

The Baton Rouge Division participated in the Wreaths Across America ceremony at Louisiana National Cemetery, preformed a color guard, provided a battlefield cross, and placed a wreath at the headstone of a former Sea Cadet. The Division had the honor of promoting its first female Chief Petty Officer, CPO Boutwell. The Division was also visited by BR cadet alumni, and current Army Sergeant Dantzler. At the Christmas party, we bid farewell to Chief West who retired from the Division. Fair Winds, Chief West. You have been an inspiration to many.
