      Ahoy Members and Friends,
      I must share with you recent messages from the Arkansas Division Sea Cadets, the unit we support. 
      The bottom one is a reminder of the Battalion Pass in Review at Camp Parks, Dublin the morning of Sunday, September 13. Let me encourage you along with Gil Freitas to take your family, especially children and grandchildren, to this free event. Please wear your Navy League lapel pin but then I hope you wear it frequently wherever you go.
      I thank all the volunteers devoted to the S. S. JEREMIAH O'BRIEN including the Sea Cadets. Lunch for the crew working aboard the ship the day of our luncheon, Monday, September 21, is complements of the council.
      Keep in touch,
      Phelps Hobart

      All Hands,

      Arkansas Division is working on its third week of augmenting the ship's force of the SS Jeremiah O'Brien National Liberty Ship Memorial by working the admission booth, museum, pier and ship's store.

      We started 11AUG09, working weekdays between 1500-1800.

      The SSJOB NLSM has been able to stay open to visitors with extended hours and the ship's store has done more business.

      Saturday, 22AUG09, ARKDIV got underway aboard the SSJOB for its Barbary Coast Cruise.

      ARKDIV League Cadets and Sea Cadets are working with SSJOB Ship's Force. The crew has been great.

      Thank you for your work and time.

      Fair Winds and Following Seas!

           Warrant Officer Guilherme Freitas, USNSCC

      Cadets and Parents,

      For those of you who have not heard yet, I am happy to report that (former) Chief Truesdell made it through Swab Summer at the Coast Guard Academy.  She is now a regular cadet--and even has email!  I am sure she would love to hear from any and all of you at:  caroline.a.truesdell@....

      Her Sea Cadet experience also seems to have served her well.  Her company  was Honor Company for Swab Summer, and she herself did so well on the PT Test that she earned the privilege of an extra long weekend.  So keep on doing those push-ups and sit-ups!

      Hope everyone has had a wonderful summer,
      ENS Truesdell

      Gil, It was good to spend some time with you and the Arkansas Division staff and cadets Saturday! In meeting with RADM. Castillo, USCG, Commander 11th District
      Message 2 of 2 , Dec 5, 2010
        It was good to spend some time with you and the Arkansas Division staff and cadets Saturday!
        In meeting with RADM. Castillo, USCG, Commander 11th District that afternoon, I expresses your division's gratitude for being able to use USCG Sector San Francisco's facilities on Yerba Buena Island. He said he would do what he could to get the cadets aboard the cutters Pike, Trout, and Aspen. He really didn't know what the current policy is but agreed it made sense since they are homeported right there. He seemed most interested and agreeable.
        I will keep in touch with him on this matter. Meanwhile, if possible, meet with the skippers about it.
        St. Nick at the tiller,
        PS Thanks for your willingness to bring two or three wreaths over to the O'BRIEN and the pierside Merchant Marine monuments the afternoon of the 11th.
