Our Mission “…through organization and cooperation with the Department of the Navy, to encourage and aid American youth to develop, train them in seagoing skills, and to teach them patriotism, courage, self-reliance and kindred virtues.” - NSCC Charter – 36 USC 1541

The U.S. Naval Sea Cadet program may very well be "the best-kept secret in America". Established by act of Congress, sponsored by the Navy League of the U.S. and supported by the US Navy, we and other Sea Cadet and League Cadet units around the country provide young Americans opportunities to learn the values of naval history and traditions, patriotism, courage, self-reliance and kindred virtues. We espouse the U.S. Navy's core values: "Honor, Courage, Commitment".

Forrestal Squadron (Naval Sea Cadet Corps, ages 13-17) has been operating in the Dallas-Fort Worth area since 1962 and Training Ship Ranger (Navy League Cadet Corps, ages 11-14) since 1958. Both units are among the oldest in America. Feel free to browse and visit the links to Navy League, Sea Cadets, and other interesting naval, military and historical sites.

Member Cadets, Parents, Officers and other registered dignitaries, please report aboard at the Quarterdeck to get the latest information on unit affairs, drill schedules, regulations, standing orders, training assignments, special events, etc. Please have your login information handy.
