The United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps is a national youth organization dedicated to instilling values such as honor, commitment, courage, responsibility, leadership and teamwork.  Cadets range in age from 10 to high school graduation, and there are active units in almost all 50 states.  Cadets from Michigan have an opportunity to travel to other states and countries to develop and strenghten skills that they will use throughout their lives.


The H.R. Doud Division is headquartered at the Navy Operations Support Center in
Saginaw, MI. Cadets travel from all over Mid-Michigan one weekend per month to
participate in drill activities. During H. R. Doud Division drill weekends, cadets train in US
Naval and Military Operations to include topics such as basic marching, color guard
presentations, land navigation, maritime history, shipboard procedures, and uniform care.
Cadets have the opportunity to travel throughout the United States and abroad for training
sessions which can last from nine days to three weeks. Each Cadet attends Sea Cadet
Recruit Training as their first major training session, some of these sessions are held at US
Navy Recruit Training Command in Great Lakes, IL. Cadets also serve local and state-wide
communities through many community service projects. The H. R. Doud Division Color
Guard provides presentations at local university and professional sporting events, festivals
and ceremonies, and organizational meetings. Opportunities are limitless for H. R. Doud
