Muster Definition:
The term muster means the process or event of accounting for members in a military unit.  This practice of inspections led to the coining of the English idiom pass muster, meaning being sufficient. When a unit is created, it is “mustered in” and when it is disbanded, it is “mustered out”.

All cadets are to have their NSCC ID Cards with them at all times.

Each cadet is responsible for notifying their chain of command if they are unable to attend a drill. Authorized absences will be given for school, work or family conflicts.  By not notifying your chain of command you will receive an unauthorized absence.


All hands are to bring a bag lunch with beverage, PT gear, towel, military courses, water bottle, pen and notebook to drill.  Cadets not having these items may be required to buy them at their own expense.

Cadets are reminded that talking, skylarking (horseplay), hazing or other disturbances will not be tolerated.  Any cadet found violating this policy will be given Extra Military Instruction (EMI) or sent home depending on the frequency and/or severity of the disturbance.

Any cadet who is taking prescription drugs must check in with the medical officer.  Your medication will be locked up in a secure area.  Cadets will not be allowed to give themselves any type of medication.  There must be clear information on your medication container:

1) Clear instructions and in original container
2) Correct label with cadet’s name on it.
3) Exact dosage and times when to be administered
