Harlan R. Dickson Division
United States Sea Cadet Corps

The Harlan R. Dickson Division of the USNSCC was commissioned in 1969 at the Naval Reserve Center in Manchester, NH.

We have been actively drilling for 35 years.

We meet at the Armed Forces Reserve Center behind the Manchester airport at 64 Harvey Rd.

Positions are available for cadets and adult staff. The division currently has a strength of 15 cadets, and 6 officers.

We meet Thursday evenings each week, from 1800 to 2100 (6:00 PM - 9:00 PM)

Our weekly drills consist of 3 classroom periods, First and Final "Muster". Classroom periods are instructional in nature and are not necessarily spent in the classroom. They may include periods of physical training, military drill (marching and drill team), and other "hands-on" activities.

Members of the Corps of Cadets are issued navy enlisted uniforms, jackets, hats, belts, etc., along with a seabag and the all the required study material for advancement in rank.

Cadet advancement begins at Seaman Recruit (E1) and Cadets can eventually advance to Chief Petty Officer (E7). Advancement is achieved by completing the appropriate study course, passing a leadership exam, completing a minimum of 6 months time in rank, and attending two weeks advanced training for each rank.

Our division also participates in civic activities such as parades and air shows.

We have several training weekends, such as marksmanship/firearms safety, swimming certification, refueling flights with the Air National Guard, and others.

Thank you for working so hard this year and for your attentiveness to your training -- Making for a successful Annual Inspection


Excessive absence without reasonable excuse will delay cadet advancement and has a direct affect on your participation in advanced trainings.

While it is understood that occasionally school work, sports, jobs and illness will conflict with drill nights, your commitment to the unit should not be overlooked. Make every effort to attend drills, as excessive absences will be taken into account when you sign up for an advanced training. Your ability to advance in rank will also be affected. If you are unable to attend a drill, it is your responsibility to let your squad leader or an officer know, so that your absence will be excused.
