<http://www.sea.scouter.com/reference/special_opportunities/opportunities.html>. Most years there are 8 Sea Scouts aboard the U.S. Coast Guard Barque
"Eagle" for its summer cruise. The selection process is spelled out on the
web site. I say "most years" because, after the selection process was
completed, the Coast Guard Academy informed our National Commodore, Capt.
James Umburger, USCG (ret.), that due to a much lower than normal drop-out
rate in the Academy's freshman class, they would not be taking anyone other
than Coast Guard Academy cadets on this year's cruise. It's small
consolation to the 8 Sea Scouts selected for the cruise that the normal
complement of U.S. Naval Academy midshipmen was also bumped from the
Information about next year's "Eagle" cruise will be posted as soon as
it's available (probably about New Years, 1998).
