BB Industries Hosts East Tennessee Veteran Open Golf TournamentBB Industries is proud to host a team golfing event to raise funds for three local non-profit youth organizations: Naval Sea Cadet Corps, Young Marines, and Civil Air Patrol.

The United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps is a Congressionally chartered organization launched in 1958. This U.S. Navy-sponsored organization serves to teach individuals about the sea-going military services, U.S. naval operations and training, community service, citizenship, and an understanding of discipline and teamwork. The United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps (Sea Cadets) is a maritime- based youth program sponsored by the U.S. Navy and supported by the U.S. Coast Guard. Cadets train on naval bases and other military installations in a variety of military disciplines, always choosing adventure, seeking challenges, and stepping outside of their comfort zones to prove to the world that Greatness Has No Age.

The Civil Air Patrol

Since Civil Air Patrol’s formation during the earliest days of World War II, this vigilant organization of citizen Airmen has been committed to service to America. Founded on Dec. 1, 1941, to mobilize the nation’s civilian aviation resources for national defense service, CAP has evolved into a premier public service organization that still carries out emergency service missions when needed — in the air and on the ground. As a Total Force partner and auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force, Civil Air Patrol is there to search for and find the lost, provide comfort in times of disaster and work to keep the homeland safe. Its 56,000 members selflessly devote their time, energy, and expertise toward the well-being of their communities, while also promoting aviation and related fields through aerospace/STEM education and helping shape future leaders through CAP’s cadet program.
