Sea Cadet Leadership Help Needed

The Mobile Council of the Navy League is looking for male and female adult volunteer assistance to help the leadership of the Dunlap Division of the Sea Cadets. Sea Cadets are High School-age young adults. Prior or current military experience is desired but not a necessity. The amount of your time is up to you. Desire to help youth is required. Please call Bill Pfister (251-680-4450) or Pete Riehm (251-442-4349) to volunteer or let them know of anyone who might be a good candidate.
