"The NSCC program is more than an extracurricular activity, it is a life experience. I attribute all that I have accomplished professionally to the foundation I received as a cadet. I am privileged to continue in the program as an adult volunteer and mentor to our youth."
Mary Cervantes, Commanding Officer
The San Joaquin County Division NSCC Unit was commissioned in 1970 at Rough and Ready Island in Stockton, California. Our unit has a rich history as it has been operating in a vibrant community with one of the largest inland ports, creating a wonderful foundation to explore maritime skills. The San Joaquin County Division unites the various communities in the San Joaquin Valley to develop the future leaders representing and influencing our county. The San Joaquin County Division was named after the USS San Joaquin County (LST-1122).
Training Ship Seawolf was commissioned in 1995 for our younger cadets at Rough and Ready Island as well. This unit was named after the submarine USS Seawolf (SSN-21) which launched for the first time in 1995.
