PCVF Supports Sea Cadets in Flagship Competition

By Pierre Claeyssens Veterans Foundation

During the dates 09MAY14 - 11May14, the Sea Cadets and staff of AIRPAC Squadron participated in the 2014 Annual Pacific Southwest Region 11 Flagship Competition at Area 33, Camp Pendleton.  

12 cadets, escorted by their Commanding Officer, Executive Officer and Training Officer, participated in deck seaman skills competitions including field events and dress events.  The cadets had fun participating in spirited competition and cheering on their shipmates.  

AIRPAC Squadron placed first place, tying with Michael A. Monsoor Batallion, in color guard.  They were honored to parade the colors at the awards ceremony and lead the pass and review.

The staff and cadets would like to thank the Santa Barbara Navy League and the Pierre Claeyssens Veterans Foundation for their continued support of these fine young men and women.  As we enter the summer, with Memorial Day and High School graduations, the color guard team will be put to good use honoring our flag and bringing an added sense of patriotism to many local events.
