GREAT LAKES, IL (Oct. 8, 2021)

On Friday, October 8, 2021, Naval Sea Cadet Corps Unit 911, based at the Great Lakes, IL, provided color guard detail for the retirement ceremony of the Hospital Corpsman Chief Petty Officer (FMF) Lady Elyenn M. Haschke.

The Color Guard Team consisted of:

PO1 Burkut

SN Burkut

APC Proa

RC Proa

From Ceremony Coordinator Chief Hospital Corpsman (HMC) Julie Proa: The Naval Sea Cadet Corps Nine One One Division delivered a stellar performance as Color Guard during a time-honored tradition of retiring HMC Lady Haschke ashore after 24 years of service. The cadets displayed excellent military bearing and represented the Sea Cadets above and beyond in the presence of seasoned sailors with decades of service.

We thank the cadets who performed, their parents for allowing them to be there during school hours, their Color Guard Instructor, and their co, for making it all happen.

USNSCC 911 Division was founded in 1959 at the Great Lakes Naval Station. It offers a leadership development program for kids ages 10 - 18 in the Chicago North West Suburbs. To learn more about the program, visit
