(KETK) - Tyler Tx — The Tyler Joint Force Battalion Sea Cadets will officially call the former National Guard armory building on Erwin Street home.
They're joining a small group of cadets who already have their own base of operations.
Some say they are one of the best kept secrets in America, but the United States Naval Sea Cadets have been training future sailors and leaders for more than fifty years, and now that the Tyler chapter can officially call this facility home, they set themselves up for even better chances of growth here in East Texas.
The open house will begin at 11:00 Saturday morning, with a medal presentation taking place at noon.
Sea cadets is designed for kids between the ages of 11 and 17, and those involved say it will give you a leg up, not only in a possible military career, but in any industry you decide to take part.
