Pentagon Division, originally Admiral Farragut Battallion, was redesignated in light of the September 11th attacks in 2001. Bearing the namesake of our great nation's symbol of military strength and the motto "Let's Roll!", the last words spoken by one of the passengers on flight UA 93, the officers and cadets of Pentagon Division pride themselves in everything they do. These youth, although not in any way obligated to a future in armed forces, develop skills in lead Seamanship and teamwork and take the Navy core values with them in their daily lives. These cadets are a proud testimony to the future of this nation, no matter where life will take them.
A medical examination similar to a high school sports physical is required for all cadet applicants to the Naval Sea Cadet Corps (NSCC) or Navy League Cadet Corp (NLCC). No one will be denied admission to the NSCC/NLCC due to a medical disablity. Where a medical condition precludes full, unlimited participation, a Request for Accomodation (NSCADM 015) may be presented by the parent or guardian for review so the cadet may participate in NSCC activities to the maximum extent possible.
Adult applicants must be in good heath commensurate with their age group and be free from any ailment or condition that would prevent them from satisfactorily performing their primary duty of supervising youth. NOTE: Adults not physically qualified to perform all duties may still participate with a waiver from NHQ considering the parameters of their expected contribution to the NSCC program
