Review for US Naval Sea Cadet Corps, Arlington, VA, USA
Talk about a difference-making nonprofit organization ! The US Naval Sea Cadet Corps has been incredibly life-changing to so many youth in America. Instead of over-exhausted screen-time, playing video games, watching TV, or having their noses in their smartphones texting their life away, the USNSCC allows patriotic young adults the opportunity to not only experience some real-life carreer-building trainings, but also develop the attributes of a solid citizen with respect, discipline, and love of country.
My twins boys, Adam & Aaron Binner have excelled both in and outside of their USNSCC Division, The Sullivan's, of Buffalo, NY. Both have gained from the program, growing into mature, hardworking young men. They have had the opportunity to travel to trainings across the US, developing the skills and attributes they will benefit from for years to come. The Leadership qualities they have garnered will yield great results as they progress through college and into their careers. Another fascinating part of this program is the lasting friendships that I know my boys will be able to cherish. It's a unique group of kids that are a part of this program.
Without the support of the volunteer leadership of the Sullivan's, this all would not have been possible. So a big Thank You needs to be mentioned here.
As you look at the way society has allowed for so much distraction and interference with teenagers, I cannot imaging not being a part of this program, and I encourage any parent to give this program a look. It changes Adam & Aaron's lives. May be it'll help someone you know as well.
