FBI Reaches out to U.S. Naval Sea Cadets and Navy League Cadets at USCG Base Staten Island
|FBI New York December 24, 2009|
On December 19, 2009. FBI Special Agent (SA) Jacqueline Delaney from the New York Division spoke to a group of approximately 25 Naval Sea Cadets and their parents at the U.S. Coast Guard base on Staten Island, New York. SA Delaney spoke about the FBI and its history and briefed Cadets about potential career opportunities at the FBI. The New York Office’s Community Outreach Program realizes the incredible talent of these young men and women for potential service in the FBI later in their careers.
The U.S. Navy Sea Cadet Corps program has been in existence since 1958 and is committed to providing American youth with a drug and alcohol free environment to foster their leadership abilities, broaden their horizons through hands-on training, and guide them to becoming mature young adults.
CWO4 George Evans, USN (Ret), Commanding Officer of the Capodanno Division Naval Sea Cadets and Training Ship Sturgeon Bay Navy League Cadets on Staten Island said, “It was great to have the FBI speak to our young men and women today. It is important for these Cadets to realize the opportunities that are available to them in the future and serving in the FBI is an excellent goal for them to pursue in life.”
Special Agent Delaney added, “This was an incredibly talented group of young men and women with a desire to serve the country. It was an honor to speak with all of them and I expect that someday in the future several will be my co-workers at the FBI.”
FBI Assistant Director in Charge Joseph Demarest commented: “The New York Office is proud to be associated with the U.S. Navy Sea Cadet Corps. These young men and women have already proven their dedication to excellence. We wish them good luck as they pursue their future goals and I certainly hope that path takes many of them to the FBI where they would be great members of our team.”
Special Agent Richard Kolko, who has oversight of the New York FBI’s community outreach program, said, “We are proud to work closely with the U.S. Navy Sea Cadet Corps. As a former Naval Officer, I know these young men and women are the best and brightest and it would be great to see them as members of the FBI team in the future.”
