ONCE SOMETHING HAS BEEN POSTED ON THIS WEBSITE, ALL CADETS ARE CONSIDERED OFFICIALLY NOTIFIED AND RESPONSIBLE FOR KNOWING ALL INFORMATION AND FOLLOWING ALL INSTRUCTIONS.

  • BATTALION COMMUNICATIONS:  There have been issues with some not receiving important communications from the unit. Coronado Battalion/Training Ship Bora Bora use e-mail lists (called DISTRO lists in the military) to keep its membership informed of important events, policies, etc. Sometimes these messages get mislabelled spam by YOUR e-mail or internet service provider. I have used quite a number of different providers over the years (AOL, Juno, G-mail, Hotmail, Outlook (at work), SBC, AT&T, etc.) and the one thing they all have in common is that while their spam filters generally work reasonably well (some are more sensitive than others), they ALL will occasionally deliver spam to your inbox that should have been filtered out, and ALL will occasionally deliver non-spam that should have gone to your inbox to your spam or junk mail folder. So you all should go to your e-mail box, and check your settings to make sure that you've enabled a spam or junk mail folder (i.e. don't let it just automatically delete everything IT thinks is spam). Then get into the habit of regularly checking your spam or junk mail folder to look for legitimate mail that should have gone to your inbox. The list messages from the unit will be easy to spot; the subject line always starts with the list name in brackets, i.e. [Coronado All Hands], [Coronado Parents], [Coronado Ward Room], etc. If you find one of those in your spam or junk mail folder, select it and click on the Not Spam button (or whatever your e-mail provider calls it). If you have the option, add the list to your whitelist (the list of people you're telling your provider to always accept mail from), but that's not foolproof as I not uncommonly find messages from people I've whitelisted in my spam or junk e-mail folder, and messages from people I blacklisted in my inbox.

  • PARENT VOLUNTEERS NEEDED:  Coronado Battalion/Training Ship Bora Bora are two of the largest units in our region. With a unit this size help is always needed to run efficiently. No special skills needed nor time limits or having to formally become an officer just a desire to help one of the best units in the Nation. Please contact the CO for more information.

  • RE-ENROLLMENTS DUE NEXT DRILL:    To enroll in a training, your ID card must be valid through the end of the training. The following cadets’ enrollments will come due between now and when summer training occurs. To avoid possible delays in getting you an approved slot at a desired training, we urge you to re-enroll early. For example, if Cadet Smith’s enrollment expires in June 2015, and the Smiths decided to re-enroll the Cadet in March 2015, then Cadet Smith’s enrollment expiration is now June of 2016.

  • INFORMING OF INTENT TO ATTEND DRILL:  Cadets are required to report drill attendance no later than 1800 on the Sunday before drill. For example, for the 14-15 Aug 2010 drill, you report by 1800 on Sunday, 8 Aug 2010. We have moved to reporting attendance via email. To successfully accomplish this you will need to; email the below address, use the correct subject line (e.g. Sea Cadet – Moreno or League Cadet – Earls) and add the content listed below:
