Michigan Commanders Battalion has openings available for young people who want to learn about our military, are ambitious, self-disciplined, physically motivated, and have strong academic performance. Cadets must meet all eligibility requirements including application, parent/cadet interview, medical screening, and payment of required fees to the United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps (USNSCC).
Our unit is heavily cadet-run. That means that as you advance in rank, we’ll put you in the same leadership roles that a Navy sailor would be in. You’ll be responsible for running large parts of the unit’s operation, and will be (maybe for the first time in your life) supervising junior cadets. Because our unit is run just like a Navy ship or reserve unit, you’ll be receiving training that only much older sailors would get. As you progress in rank and develop your leadership skills, you'll be mentored by both senior cadets and the officers in the unit.
Cadets also have the opportunity to participate in special advanced trainings and boot camps around the country during the summer months and winter holidays. Mandatory monthly drills are held 1 weekend a month (Saturday & Sunday) from 0845-1500. These are Mandatory unless Excused and not below the 75% minimum attendance requirement for the year.
