Welcome to Lone Star Squadron
United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps (USNSCC) The Naval Sea Cadet Corps is for American youth ages 10-18 who have a desire to learn about the Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine. Sea Cadets are authorized by the Secretary of the Navy to wear Navy uniforms appropriately marked with the Sea Cadet Corps insignia. The objectives of the Sea Cadet program are to introduce youth to naval life, to develop in them a sense of pride, patriotism, courage, and self-reliance, and to maintain an environment free of drugs and gangs.
ABOUT LONE STAR SQUADRON
Hello and welcome to the website for Lone Star Squadron and Training Ship Lone Star. We are glad you are visiting us today. By now, I hope you know enough about Sea Cadets to have an interest, but let me tell you about Lone Star.
Lone Star Squadron (Sea Cadets) was commissioned by the USNSCC in 1995. Training Ship Lone Star (League Cadets) was commissioned in 2001. Since that time, Lone Star has had the privilege of drilling at Naval Air Station Fort Worth Joint Reserve Base. Lone Star is sponsored by the Fort Worth Council of the Navy League, and we proudly represent Fort Worth and Tarrant County.
Since our commissioning, we have grown into a Nationally recognized Unit. Beginning in 2001, Lone Star entered into the “Top 10”, a ranking of the best units in the Nation. Since 2001, Lone Star has been a Top 10 unit eleven times, reaching the #1 spot in the Nation in 2010, 2015, 2016 and 2017.
This program is one of the Nation’s best kept secrets. The training that is afforded our Youth is extraordinary. Cadets have the opportunity to travel all over the Nation to different military bases & Coast Guard Stations. Cadets train right beside our Active Duty and Reserve personnel, learning various jobs in the Navy, Marines and Coast Guard.
