Wednesday Evening Update

More than half the training has been completed. How did that happen so quickly? We are all having a great time! The cadets are eating well, exercising, and building new friendships with their shipmates.
Culinary cadets worked in FIT's dining facility again today. We noticed that they were doing a terrific job helping with the cooking, stocking, and cleaning activities. Parents, we hope you'll put their new skills to use at home! They also had two guest speakers, Mrs. Bates and Mrs. Hughes, wives of retired officers, who shared valuable information about how to have a successful formal dinner. This included the china/silverware, who to invite, where to seat them, and other details of etiquette.
Honor Guard continued work on the armed drill routine that you will see Saturday. Additionally, the most proficient four cadets performed a color guard at the Manatees baseball game. The rest of Honor Guard and also POLA cadets attended the baseball game and cheered the home team on until lightning, rain, and high winds appeared, and they had to make a run for the vans!
POLA cadets are doing more public speaking and gaining confidence in front of the group. They are practicing being company commander and calling cadence. Many of the cadets commented that they are gaining excellent information at the training to take back to their units.
Basic Orientation cadets started the morning with swim qualifications, and then spent the rest of the morning at the range! They were able to shoot the .22 rifles for marksmanship qualification and we had several qualify for ribbons! They continued with their classes and work on the NLCC syllabus. One test has been given thus far. Those cadets who did not pass will be given another opportunity, and those who did pass will move on to the next level. Parents, you are doing a great job sending encouraging emails! The cadets really appreciate hearing from you.
NLCC Fitness had another busy day with trips to the roller skating rink and the bowling alley. There are many ways to get and stay fit, and we are trying to help them find ones that they like! Healthy food and extra trips to the salad bar are still the rule in the chow hall. The cadets have commented that climbing to the 4th deck of the barracks is actually getting them VERY fit!
Personal Protection spent most of the day doing Brazilian jujitsu, a martial art. They also had a class on the U.S. Constitution and had a guest speaker who discussed the mental strength needed to get through combat and other difficult situations.

Tuesday Evening Update

Your cadets have been very busy since check-in! Cadets are really enjoying the GREAT food at FIT
Honor Guard checked in Friday and has been working hard on color guard. Tomorrow four of the most proficient cadets will perform at the Manatees baseball game. The HG cadets have also been practicing their presentation for Saturday.
Basic Orientation cadets had the opportunity to tour a small research ship today. They continued with classes and marching. This evening the NLCC Fitness cadets joined Basic for a terrific presentation by COL Pat Keene, USA, retired, about an exciting World War II naval battle.
NLCC Fitness enjoyed a trip to the archery range today. They are continuing to eat healthy food. (Their DIVO has authorized them to have all the second servings they want as long as the food comes from the salad bar.) The cadets are beginning some very good exercise and dietary habits, and we hope you parents will help them continue these at home!
NLCC Personal Protection cadets did almost a full day of Aikido, a martial art that is particularly good for self-defense. They have been doing some public speaking and learning about power that comes from within.
Culinary cadets have been cooking at the FIT kitchen! They also are preparing terrific meals in their apartment kitchens. Today they had a session at Keiser University with a chef. They made flowers out of squash!
POLA had more classes and did close order drill. In addition to their classes on how to run a boot camp, the cadets participated in a class on the U.S. Constitution.
