Email Your Cadet

All cadets have an onboard email address:

The onboard email system uses satellites, and sending and receiving messages is not instantaneous; it fluctuates based on satellite connectivity.

Attachments cannot be sent or received onboard the ship. 

In case of an emergency that you don’t wish to communicate via email, please call Joann Sprague, regimental assistant, at (718) 409-7352, and she will relay the information for you.
