Naval Sea Cadets collect
Toys for Tots


  Since 1958 the Naval Sea Cadet Corps has been committed to providing American youth with a drug and alcohol free environment to foster their leadership abilities, broaden their horizons through hands-on training and guide them to becoming mature young adults.

  Sea Cadet organizations exist in most of the maritime nations of the world. Recognizing the value of these organizations in educating youth in maritime matters, the Department of the Navy requested the Navy League of the United States to establish a similar program for American youth. The Navy League agreed to do so and formally established the Naval Sea Cadet Corps (NSCC) and Navy League Cadet Corps (NLCC) in 1958.

  The local Sea Cadet unit, The 1124th Construction Battalion (, Commanded by LTJG Eric Farland has been serving Henry County since 2009 and currently has 26 young Americans ranging from 11 to 18 years old.

  From the Cadets of the 1124th Construction Battalion will be collecting new unwrapped toys from now until December 6 for the U.S.M.C. Toys for Tots Campaign.

  In addition to this the Cadets will be making wooden toys for the Connecting Henry’s Community Cares Toy Shop.

  Drop off locations are at the McDonough City Hall, Subway Sandwich Shop located at  6994 Highway 42 in Locust Grove and LKQ Corporation located at 2401 Hwy. 42 North in Jenkinsburg.

  Please help the Cadets of the 1124th Construction Battalion make this Christmas very special and one to remember for children in need.
