    Ahoy Members and Friends,


    Thought you might like to see Saturday's drill routine for the Sea Cadet Division we sponsor and support. We are proud of all the Cadets accomplish and very appreciative of the unit's leadership. The relationship between the Pacific Merchant Marine Council and the Arkansas Division Sea Cadets is close. With the August fundraiser on the Potomac we were able to increase our financial contribution in support of the Cadets far and away more than our effort in 2011.


    The division's "Annual Inspection" is Saturday, 16 March at the drill site: Yerba Buena Island, Building 2, US Coast Guard Sector San Francisco, California 94130. Our 2012 Navy League Theodore Roosevelt Youth Awards for the Sea Cadet and League Cadet will again be presented - this time in front of the assembled Cadets. The certificate, along with the NLUS ribbon with "Gold Boot" was presented to League Cadet ABC Nunez  while Sea Cadet PO2 Stephan Sobolev will receive his certificate and the League's Theodore Roosevelt Youth Award with medal and ribbon. Two years ago he received the ribbon with the gold boot.


    You are welcome to attend, observe, and have lunch as well. We will keep you aware of the best time to arrive to see the presentation of our awards, various ribbons, and other commendations - anticipate 0930.


    Heave Ho,



    Phelps Hobart

    Attached please find the POD for the drill this Saturday.  Please report attendance through your chain of command.

    As mentioned by INST Karen Freitas, Arkansas Division and the Band of the West has separated from one another, so that BOTW and become their own independent unit.  This also means that CAPT Cogan will now become CO of the BOTW, and our former XO Guilherme Freitas, was promoted to LTJG and will now become Commanding Officer of the unit. 

    Many thanks for CAPT Cogan for his many years of service and dedication to the unit.  You will certainly be missed.  Congratulations to both LTJG Freitas in your promotion, and to the BOTW in their new commissioning.

    Thank you for your kind words.

    We will be there.

    We need to add to the agenda March 16 a party for the new CO of the Arkansas Division and his promotion unless the Division's board decides on an earlier date.

    Greetings Phelps,

    Thanks for your calls over the holiday. I just got the check in the mail yesterday and will make sure that the band also receives funds. You read my mind - Well done!

    You have done so much for the welfare and the cause of the Sea Cadet unit and I really want to thank you and Teddy.

    I wanted to give you a date so that you will have it - 16 March for Annual Inspection for Arkansas Division. l will let you know the timing at a later date. We really want both of you there!

    Cheers- Karen
