Lessons from a ‘former’ Sea Scout who still think and write as Sea Scout. Once a Sea Scout, always a Sea Scout. ==> “Thanks to Mariners, I went on to sail in college, and I had the opportunity to develop many of the qualities and interests which led me to become a journalist. The women I met in the program became politicians, offshore wind engineers and Coast Guard officers. Their experience serving in leadership positions and advancing in the ranks of the Sea Scouts helped them get there.”

They thus become good scouts, good seamen and good citizens.’
