  1. I have an issue with the Cadet training throughout the North End at 5 am. I have been woken up 3 times in the last 6 days with them chanting (and they are loud) by my bedroom window at 5 am and ending somewhere around 5:40.
    Why are they allowed to do basic training in a neighborhood at 5 am? I called 311 and they advised me to call 911. I’m all for basic training but not at 5 am in a congested neighborhood.
    Can anything be done about this?

  2. I love the cadet training. Where else in America can you see the men and women who protect us training right outside your door? For a couple of days, it’s fine.

    Traffic on Hanover St on weekends is gridlocked and this is what people are complaining about?

  3. I agree with Kim. The timing of 5:00 am is very early and people (adults and children) don’t need to be woken up with the cadets training.
    We have a beautiful harbor or the Charles River they can run along.

    1. I’ve come to the conclusion that the powers to be come up with plans to make the residents of the North Ends lives as miserable as possible and so far they have accomplished their goal.

  4. The Navy running through the neighborhood pre-dawn in a major disruption, and it happens every year. I actually get dressed and confront them every year and have learned a few things. It’s part of the Navy’s Herritage week celebration, and is approved by both the Mayor’s office and Boston PD. I can only hope that the Boston PD and Mayor’s office are unaware of how disruptive this is. The only way it will stop is if we let them know. Write, tweet @, or whatever and tell them to stop it. Contact our representatives Lydia Edwards and Aaron Michlewitz. It will only stop if they hear from enough of us.

    I’m saying this as I lay in bed missing yet another day of work due to a cold that may not have been so bad if hadn’t been woke up at 5AM on Tuesday, when I was trying to get extra sleep to combat it.

  5. To add on to my previous comment, when I called the police on Tuesday I was told to call community service at 617-343-4627 to complain. Sharing the number in the hopes that we can shut this down.

  6. If they come back again I will call community service, thanks for the number. I have videos both from inside behind a shut window and down on street level. I have no problem with them training in the North End, I take issue with the unnecessary shouting of their cadences at 5 AM. It also seems as though they only run on 1 or 2 streets because they come down Fleet at least 5 times each time they come by.
