Saint Lucian cadets commended for outstanding performance

PRESS RELEASE – The National Volunteer Coordinating Office – Office of the Prime Minister, wishes to congratulate the members of the Saint Lucia Cadet Corps who are returning home today after participating in the 2014 Caribbean Cadet Camp in Port Antonio, Jamaica.

We were reliably informed by their Corps PR department that our young Saint Lucians captured second place overall after participating in adventurous and Para Military Competitions. The Main Competition being the PJ Patterson Shoot.

Thanks for making Saint Lucia proud.

Coordinator of the National Volunteer Programme Cyril J Saltibus who himself went through the ranks of the Saint Lucia Cadet Corps, attaining the rank of Captain and served in the capacity as Unit Officer, Company Commandant, Cadet Corps Training Office and finally as Adjutant; says that he is proud of this organization and the impact it had and continue to have on many Saint Lucians.

He added that if every Secondary School Student spent at least two to three years being trained by the Cadet Corps, our youth would have a more positive outlook on life.

  1. this is an organisation that really needs some more of our financial support, this can only be good for our communities and the future of our society. this builds discipline, promotes teamwork, build friendships and future contacts and its a good way for young people spend time doing quality stuff. the focus on hiking and outdoors activity will also foster a deeper sense of belonging and respect for nature. if i ever become financially able i would more than gladly sponsor some sort of activity for this organisation annually.... so hats off to the people who work very hard to keep this alive, you all deserve a lot of respect and love.
    cheers

  2. Is Someone trying to blow his trumpet. Congratulations guys...You have always make St Lucia proud....The government should try to assist the children of underprivilege families to join the Corp..That is a crime fighting tool.

    • You must be a small-minded individual if you think I was attempting to blow my trumpet.

    • independen,

      Also, everyone has the option to join the Scout and/or Cadets. How do figure the Gov't should try to assist families to have their children join either origanisation? Shouldn't it be up to the parent(s)?

  4. Is the Cadet association going to tell us anything about the untimely death of the young boy while in their care, or are we going to continue to pretend that nothing happened?

    • My, oh my. The Cadet Core not Association is not the one investigating this incidence. Why are you looking to blame the Core. The Core is in mourning and for you now to indicate that they are pretending that nothing happened is false. If you know of anything or have information why don't you share it with the Police Commissioner.

  5. It's amazing. I was just listening to RCI earlier in the week and the radio announcers were asking where are the uniform groups. Great to see the Cadet Corp still exist.
