Navy League Cadet Corps Ranger Training Ship

The Navy League Cadet Corps is the younger version of the United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps (USNSCC) and its participants range in age from 10 to 13. The primary mission of the NLCC is to train and prepare cadets for active participation in the Sea Cadet Corps.

NLCC cadets wear the Navy uniform - with appropriate shoulder insignia denoting NLCC membership - and are supervised by NSCC officers administering the program. Some units are grouped with NSCC units under the supervision of regional and senior regional directors, however, those who have achieved “Training Ship” status can operate semi-independently from their attached NSCC Units. Such is the case here in North Texas.

The Ranger Training Ship, a highly selective and mission oriented organization, shares a reserve center home with the Forrestal Squadron at the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base in Fort Worth. At this location, active training with the Naval Reserve and base personnel makes the program truly exceptional for its young members. Training rotations last for seven to nine day periods and cadets can earn most of the same type of ribbons and awards as Sea Cadets, taking those ribbons with them when they transfer.

The Dallas Council is proud to support the young men and women of Ranger Training Ship in a variety of ways.
