Nelson’s Sebastian Bodine was recently in Ottawa where the 81 Hampton Gray Sea Cadet was honoured with the Royal Canadian Navy Leadership Award.
The Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Chief Petty Officer First Class received the award from Vice-Admiral M.F. Rob Lloyd, Commander of the Royal Canadian Navy with Lt (N), Ret, Earle Corn during the National Navy League Annual Luncheon last month in Ottawa.
The award is for:
“For his exceptional leadership in citizenship, teamwork and aiding in the development of the Royal Canadian Sea Cadet identity and morale. His outstanding participation in training and community-based activities within the Sea Cadet Program is regarded by his peers and supervisors as representative of the model Royal Canadian Sea Cadet and Canadian citizen ~ Bravo Zulu!”
Prior to the National Navy League Luncheon Bodine was requested to perform the duties of Master of Ceremonies for the Canadian Navy League AGM Banquet where he also gave a speech about his seven years of training, coaching, mentorship and international expeditions with the Canadian Sea Cadet Programme.
Another AGM has been completed! With lots of information going back to the many Navy League Branches, Cadet Corps and Sea Cadet Corps, we are sure to continue providing the best possible experience for the youth under our care!
A big thanks to all of our supporters and special guests!

Cadet Kaitlin Lebrun of Williams Lake shot her rifle and skied to a gold medal at the Northern Zone Biathlon Competition held at Otway Ski centre in Prince George last weekend.
Lebrun, 17, is with 202 Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps in Williams Lake. More than 30 cadets competed in Prince George, testing their fitness, skiing, teamwork, and marksmanship skills over a 6 km course.
“I’ve always wanted to ski and do sports, this is fun,” says cadet Lebrun, “I encourage others to do it.”
Lebrun, who is Chief Petty Officer in her Corps, has attended three zone competitions and participated in two provincial competitions in past years. Lebrun has also been on an exchange trip to the U.S. with the Cadet Program.
Lebrun finished first in the female youth category and will compete at the provincial level February 2-3 in Mount Washington, Comox.
The Cadet Program aims to develop in youth ages 12-18 the attributes of good citizenship and leadership, promote physical fitness and stimulate the interest of youth in sea, land and air activities of the Canadian Armed Forces.
