JPK Weekend 2015


The JOSEPH P. KENNEDY JR Division would like to announce “JPK Weekend 2015″

Where? – Battleship Cove, Fall River MA – on board the USS JOSEPH P. KENNEDY JR (DD-850)

When? – Friday November 6th through Sunday November 8th – report and departure times to be announced

Cost?- $50 Dollars per Cadet

This years training is going to focus on the role of a US Destroyer during wartime. The JOSEPH P. KENNEDY JR played a vital role during the Cuban Missile Crisis back when it was in active duty service. Cadets can expect to be trained in shipboard firefighting, watch standing, bridge operations, combat information center operations, navigation and plotting and vessel boarding and inspection procedures. The highlight of the weekend will be an all-hands scenario dubbed “Operation Red Coast”.


Berthing aboard the KENNEDY is limited, with only 60 billets available for the weekend.

There is no restriction for age, time in service or rank.

League Cadets will be accepted, however the training is going to be more advanced in nature, and Sea Cadets will have preference for billets.

Interested officers should contact LTJG Tom Luckman, NSCC directly for information, as officer berthing is at a premium.

Unit CO’s please email COTC LTJG Tom Luckman at

Billets will not be final until NSCTNG003/004 is submitted along with a bank check or money order, made out to “USNSCC”
