                    Military Courtesies

 • Military customs and courtesies are not optional,
   they are required knowledge and you must follow
   them at all times




COMPASS :: http://compass.seacadets.org/    U. S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps
                    Military Courtesies

 • You salute officers of all services and NSCC
       – Only when you are covered
       – Officer does NOT have to be covered
 • You NEVER salute cadets, or enlisted members of
   the services
       – Chief Petty Officers wear uniforms that are similar, so you
         need to be CAREFUL when you look




COMPASS :: http://compass.seacadets.org/                U. S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps
                    Addressing People

 • How do you address an officer/instructor?
       – “Yes (No), Sir/Ma’am”
       – “Aye, aye, Sir/Ma’am”
 • How do you address a senior cadet?
       – “Yes (No), Petty Officer!”
 • How do you address your shipmate?
       – Rank and Last name (Seaman Jones)
       – Last name (informally)
       – Hey you (very informal)




COMPASS :: http://compass.seacadets.org/     U. S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps
                    Military Courtesies

 • Some officers don’t care if you show all the
   courtesies, but most DO and if you don’t practice,
   you’ll forget when you need to remember
 • When you cannot salute, look the officer in the eye
   and greet them “Good morning, Sir/Ma’am”
 • When you aren’t sure if you should salute, SALUTE.
   It’s always better to salute when you shouldn’t,
   then not salute when you should!




COMPASS :: http://compass.seacadets.org/    U. S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps
               When should I salute?

 • When walking in a small group, EVERYONE salutes
       – When marching or standing in formation, however, the
         leader of the group salutes for the rest of you
 • When you are covered and in uniform
 • When boarding/departing a ship of the Navy/Coast
   Guard
       – Turn to the aft (back) of the ship, face the National Ensign,
         and salute sharply




COMPASS :: http://compass.seacadets.org/                 U. S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps
      What else do I need to learn?

 • Military Drill
       – Proper ways to march in formation
       – Teaches teamwork
 • Proper uniform wear & care
       – You must present a sharp military appearance. Most
         people do not know the difference between a Sea Cadet
         and a Navy sailor, so you must present yourself as best
         you can
       – Shave if necessary, keep your hair neat (2 inches of bulk is
         the maximum on top, hair cannot cover ears)
       – Iron or press your uniform properly! Don’t trust the dry
         cleaners to do it!

                              Boot Camp

 • All Sea Cadets need to pass boot camp (Recruit
   Training) before they can go on Advanced Training
   (TWT) evolutions
       – League Cadets can go to boot camp (7 days) but it is not
         required for advancement
 • 10-14 days of hard work, but it’s well worth it
 • If you cannot make boot camp, you cannot
   advance in rank or go on Advanced Training. This
   is critical!




COMPASS :: http://compass.seacadets.org/               U. S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps
            Correspondence Courses

 • Basic Military Requirements (NAVEDTRA 14325)

         completed to advance to E-2(T)
       – It is the longest book you will have to do, no other book
         has more than 5 assignments
       – BMR teaches you Navy customs and important concepts,
         so the sooner you get it done, the better off you will be




COMPASS :: http://compass.seacadets.org/                U. S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps
        What can I expect at drills?

       – Learn about military equipment, weapons, people
       – Military customs or leadership classes

  That’s a lot of stuff I have to do!

 • Not as much as you’d think!
 • You have shipmates here to help you and the
   officers will be here to guide you too
 • It’s FUN. That is, of course, why you’re here
