Who We Are

Arizona Veterans Pride Battalion is a U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps (USNSCC) chapter for the city of Glendale. The USNSCC is a federally chartered non-profit civilian youth organization for young people, ages 11 through 17. Veterans Pride Battalion is structured as a US NAVY Seabee Battalion and honors the Seabee’s proud traditions.

The USNSCC is comprised of two programs. The Naval Sea Cadet Corps (NSCC) program is for young people ages 13 through 17. Also included under the USNSCC umbrella is our junior program the Navy League Cadet Corps (NLCC), for young people ages 11 through 13.

Both the Sea Cadets and League Cadets are considered individual companies within the Veterans Pride Battalion who share the same Command staff, Battalion offices & resources but have their own Company Commanders much the same as the US NAVY Seabees & United States Marine Corps.


Best Cadets in the West

As our unit grows, it is our job to train new recruits. When senior cadets depart, the unit needs new cadets to fill the ranks of the unit’s leadership.

“EACH ONE, TEACH ONE” As a unit, all cadets must work together to make things happen. Weather it’s S.W.A.T. Training, Swim Qual or simply teaching a new shipmate how to shine their boots and care for their uniform. It’s your job as the next senior cadet to teach and motivate one another.

“ONE TEAM – ONE SHIP” is our motto for a reason. We are all one big family, and it’s our job to look out for one another. So, get to know your Shipmates, and become part of the Veterans Pride Battalion Team.
