SUBJ: SOLICITATION FOR THE USCG 2017 NATIONAL SCOUT JAMBOREE (NSJ) TASK FORCE - 004/17

1. ALCOAST 102/17 was recently issued to solicit support for the U.S. Coast Guard's 2017 National Scout Jamboree (NSJ) Task Force (please see the full message at http://www.uscg.mil/announcements/). The 2017 NSJ will be held at the Bechtel Summit Reserve, Beckley, West Virginia, from 17-29 July 2017. It will bring together Boy Scouts, co-ed contingents of Venturers and Sea Scouts, and their adult leaders for training and unique outdoor adventures and experiences. The total number of scouts attending is expected to exceed 40,000 with more than 40,000 additional visitors. This high visibility event is a prime opportunity for the Coast Guard to assist an organization that teaches positive values to America's youth, while reaching out to an ideal candidate pool for future CG personnel. Rear Admiral Dan Abel, the Coast Guard Flag sponsor, has been appointed by the Vice Commandant to coordinate the Coast Guard's support of this event.
