Coast Guard Station Portland, Ore., to host youth Sea Cadet training

Pacific Northwest Coast Guard News
PORTLAND, Ore. — Coast Guard Station Portland crewmembers will host a group of U.S. Naval Sea Cadets for law enforcement training, June 27-30, in Portland.

The Maritime Interdiction Operations training is to expose the cadets, aged 14-18, to life as Maritime Law Enforcement Officers, dealing with situations that pose a threat to America’s waterways.

Cadets will undergo challenging physical fitness workouts, experience self-defense training, become educated in firearms safety, learn about the dangers of illegal drugs and about making critical law enforcement decisions.

The training is funded by the U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps, a non-profit youth organization that teaches the cadets about patriotism, self-reliance and leadership. Cadets work alongside our nation’s seagoing services including the U.S. Coast Guard, Navy, and Marine Corps with no obligation to join any branch of the service.

Cadets from Oregon, Washington and California will attend.
