Each December on National  Wreaths across America Day, our mission to Remember, Honor and Teach is carried out by laying wreaths at the Sarasota National Cemetery. This year we are hoping to provide 1,000 wreaths, please help us reach our goal. If you would like to assist us on December 17, 2017as we lay these wreaths please let us know. Please donate today.

The Maritime Eagles is the only Sea Cadet Unit in Manatee/Sarasota county. It is a division that prides itself in helping young men and women ages 10 through 17 years of age in becoming the best citizens of their communities. Although we wear the uniform of the United States Navy, our mission is not steer our cadets into any branch of service. However, if the individual does decide to put off college for a while and join a branch of service; that cadet may enlist at an accellerated paygrade. The goal of our staff is to promote and ensure an atmosphere where each cadet can be successful in both school and life. Our motto "Lead, follow or get out of the way" is not a slogan     but words we strive to live by daily. We do not babysit nor are we a place to dicipline. Each cadet must be a fulltime student and maintain at least a 2.0 GPA. We look forward to you becoming a member of the Maritime Eagles. Fun is guaranteed!
