NLCC League Cadet

DRESS WHITES

AKA

SALT & PEPPERS

 

For Leaguers (ages 10-13)

TO BE WORN for the months of April thru September, the Winter Dress uniform is replaced with a summer "Salt &  Pepper" uniform.

 

Note: Our uniform items are reissued to us by the US Navy. They come in sizes that fit adults. Some League Cadets can fit into an adult small, but our smaller/younger League Cadets are completely swallowed up by our uniform shirts/blouses. If you are concerned about the fit, you are welcome to purchase your own set.

* All patches need to be sewn.  Never glue or use press patches on them.

Rank Patches are to be transferred from your Blues to your Whites.
