I'm so happy with where I've gotten so far since the 2012-2013 year. I was in a bad place then, so each birthday is an added victory. I never thought I'd see twenty. *** I never thought I'd get past fifteen, after my family split up and my only friend was forced out of my life. I was alone, I was bitter, I was not who I wanted to be, and I was scared. Civil Air Patrol saved my life. It gave me friends, family, and a purpose. It taught me how to lead, how strong I could be, and how to be brave. I'd be dead for sure if I had never joined. I enlisted in the Army National Guard in 2012 and was honorably discharged under medical in the summer of 2013, something that makes me feel shame every time it gets mentioned or I see another Soldier. I thought enlisting would make me brave and strong; a hero. I was very wrong. I fell apart. I didn't leave my bed for months. I failed out of Eastern and I lost my family in CAP in a matter of months. Five years of slaving away gone almost immediately. I lost my full ride .. ...

Tell me what you think about the letter I sent to a former seal. "THE ONLY EASY DAY WAS YESTERDAY" Good evening Mr. Rutherford. My name is Matthew Hoffman. How are you today sir? I'd like to just say something it's quite long but you'll understand. First I'd like to say thank you sir for serving our country and your an inspiration to me, and here's why. Through out my yrs of wanting to join the military since the age of 17 I've been trying to pass the ASVAB so much. In fact I took the EAST like forty four times, and the real one like five times but I knew about the deal about only having three test before two years. So I've been going at this up til last month. I applied for the naval academy back in January because I was so mad some people I know and I wanted out of my life, I want to grow up and take on new challenges. So I went ahead and applied and by a miracle they wrote back last month with an exciting letter stating that I am an official candidate of the class of 2019. Once I got that letter and th ...

FYI: The South Carolina Air National Guard is conducting an air defense exercise in the Florence area, June 11. As part of this routine exercise, fighter jets assigned to the SCANG’s 169th Fighter Wing might be seen escorting a single-engine aircraft belonging to the South Carolina Civil Air Patrol between 9 to 11:30 a.m. Carefully planned and closely controlled, this exercise has been coordinated with the Federal Aviation Administration to ensure the rapid response capability associated with the SCANG’s Aerospace Control Alert mission. Most of the flying activity will not be visible from the ground. The McEntire unit is a critical component of the strategic force that is poised 24/7 to respond to airborne threats over the United States and is part of North American Aerospace Defense Command’s Operation Noble Eagle, which was initiated after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
When I was about 15 years old, I was a member of CAP (Civil Air Patrol), which is a military pre training organization. We wore camo-military-esque uniforms with patches and epaulettes, and I was proud to be a part of it, until we learned to shoot a semi-automatic weapon. All of the members had to take a class on how to take apart, put together, load, and clean the weapon, which was very interesting to me. I like knowing how things work and are built. After the class, we went outside to the firing range. 5 at a time, we lined up, crouched down, and laid on our stomachs. At that point, we were each given a semi-automatic rifle. It was then that I knew this was actually a real gun and not just some "You'll shoot your eye out kid" situation. I had been used to paint ball guns, BB guns, etc... But this was different. This wasn't "You'll shoot your eye out kid". This was "What you have in your hands is capable of killing a lot of people very easily. This is not for hunting. This is for killing." I managed to f ...

Seven Cadets from Green River Composite Squadron attended a McChord Orientation Trip Saturday. Tour stops included: * Washington Wing Headquarters (WAWG HQ) for Civil Air Patrol - Cadets met Wing admin staff, toured the building, and were given a chance to pick up spare uniform pieces at no cost. * McChord Thrift Store - The Thrift Store, which is volunteer-run, is only open certain weekdays and the first Saturday of the month. Cadets now know where to return with their family members in the future. This is a worthwhile stop if you're ever passing by McChord during their limited hours, because most uniform items cost just $2-5, and you really never know what you're going to find. * The Dry Cleaner, Alterations, and Clothing Sales at the Exchange - Cadets found unclaimed uniform items at the Dry Cleaners for $5-8, and then stopped in to Clothing Sales for a few specific items (neck tie tabs, PT belts, boot blousers, etc.). Alterations is a good future stop once they need all their new patches sewn on, or b ...

CAP’s CORE VALUES The Air Force's Core Values are: Integrity First, Service Before Self, and Excellence in all We Do. This is more than just a slogan. The Air Force describes them as the common bond among all comrades in arms. The core values of Civil Air Patrol are based on the Air Force and strive to establish a common set of behavioral expectations as well as a set of standards to *** member conduct. The values of Integrity, Volunteer Service, Excellence and Respect, serve as the ethical framework for CAP’s service to America.
Apparently I have learned nothing about volunteering in a military service despite 4-years of active duty in the Marine Corps. I'm now the Transportation Officer for our squadron, and have a new Ford Civil Air Patrol van that I'm responsible for. Wash the van, talk to the van, love the van. It has to be waxed once a year. It doesn't have lights and a siren, so I'm REALLY happy about that! This van is for official duty use only, so no new party friends!
The U.S. Air Force calls upon its Civil Air Patrol volunteer auxiliary to photograph disaster damage, rescue plane crash victims and even search for marijuana fields. They're like unpaid professionals who take on heavy tasks, which is why the Air Force has them undergo simulated missions every year. At Concord's Buchanan Field, about 50 volunteers with the California Wing from across the state demonstrated their proficiency on Saturday on the second and final day of training.
I have just Volunteered to help the Tennessee Wing Civil Air Patrol at the U.S. Navy Blue Angels Air Show at the Smyna Air National Guard it costs $25.00 for Adults and $15.00 for kids if your in the Area on Saturday Or Sunday drop by.More details about time etc. are coming Tomorrow.

CAP partners with Smithsonian for nationwide singing of national anthem June 14 Visitors view the Star-Spangled Banner at the National Museum of American History. The first stanza of the national anthem is projected prominently on the wall above the 30-foot by 34-foot flag, which is displayed at a horizontal orientation and, in order to reduce stress to the 200-year-old wool and cotton fabric, at a 10-degree angle of elevation in a special enclosure with a 35-foot floor-to-ceiling glass wall, The room has separate environmental systems maintaining a constant temperature of 68-72 degrees and relative humidity of 50 percent. Americans will “Raise it Up!” on Flag Day, June 14, and come together to participate in potentially the largest unified event in American history, turning the national anthem into “the song that was heard around the world.” Civil Air Patrol is proud to be a national partner and encourages members to participate in “Raise it Up!

WHY VOTE FOR ME, SHELL MERCER, FOR FAMILY COURT JUDGE, DEPT. C? I've been a practicing attorney for 15 years; before that, in 1992, I was a legal secretary and paralegal. In 2009, the Family Court Judges chose me to serve as a Pro Tem Hearing Master. I've sat on the bench and adjudicated approximately 3,000 matters in the following areas of Family Court: Juvenile Delinquency, Abuse & Neglect, Mental Health Commitment, Discovery, Guardianship, Domestic Violence, Child Support & Truancy. I've also served as a Truancy Judge for a few years. In 2010, the Governor of Nevada appointed [and subsequently reappointed] me to serve as 1 of 2 consumer members on the Chiropractic Physicians' Board of Nevada. I've chaired a number of disciplinary hearings as a member of the Nevada chiropractors' licensing and regulatory board. I grew up with two older siblings. Our father was enlisted in the Air Force. He passed away from multiple sclerosis when I was a senior in high school. I've lived in Las Vegas since 1988 (with th ...

These pictures represent an Aerospace Education program designed by Major Gregory Krempasky, of the Ohio River (IL) Composite Squadron, via the Teen Reach Program with materials provided and purchased by the Illinois Cooperative Extension Office. Assisting Major Krempasky were Major Larry Call and Captain Ron Diggs with classroom instruction. Students studied aviation maps, built kites and rockets, then flew their kites and rockets. Some of the rockets were able to reach an altitude of 1000 feet over the Massac County High School north of Metropolis. Further, SM Joe Krempasky served as launch and safety officer for the event. The Civil Air Patrol is the official Auxiliary of the United States Air Force. For more information on the CAP Cadet Program, please contact Major Krempasky... Loads of summer activities. All over Illinois, Kentucky, and the entire United States.

It is with deep regret we inform you of the passing of SAL Member Eddie Hoeger. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Eddies family during this difficult time. Funeral arrangements and obit below. EDWARD G. HOEGER (52), our son, brother, father, and friend, died on June 6, 2014. Eddy was a lovable, irresistible rascal whose infectious smile, unmistakable laugh, quick wit, and unshakable loyalty defined him. His absence leaves us bereft. He is survived by his mother, Penny Postel; his sister, Ellyce Hoeger (Richard Gillis); sons, Edward P. and Myles D. Hoeger; members of the Walsky, Postel, and Hoeger families; special lady, Renae Previdi; and scores of friends. He remained stoic and positive, charming and entertaining during his final bout with esophageal cancer which ended in his childhood home in the loving hands of his dearest mother, sister, and faithful, best friend, Catherine Binowski. It was an honor to care for him. His bravery was amazing. He encountered death stoically and gracefully. While still a ...
First time in the pilot seat of a cesna 182 in the civil air patrol. Was way badass
Thank God America has a Civil Air Patrol (CAP) teaching our kids how to make guns out of pieces of wood and bombs at age 14. I'm serious!! When you think you disagree with me,...sign your kid up as a foreign exchange student in Rwanda. You'll sure as *** change your mind about whether your kid should go to school without a gun. The kids carry automatic weapons at age 5 and 6. If they don't have guns, your kid may not have lunch money or get shot for not giving it up. Seriously! Socially, I'm a VERY LIBERAL, "Open-Minded" guy, but NOT when it comes to weapons and guns. Most people have NO IDEA HOW DANGEROUS THE WORLD REALLY IS. There are ILLEGAL CREMATORIUMS,...believe me, I KNOW! ROGER JEWELL FOR PRESIDENT 2016/L.A. Roger (TM)/Roger Jewell
Still super happy that I passed all my Civil Air Patrol tests today and that I get to rank up soon.
I miss ROTC and Civil Air Patrol! I seriously had the best time with those groups!

Congratulations to my Ben Aaron Shea who PASSED his exam for the Spaatz award - the highest Civil Air Patrol Cadet Award. Very few achieve this level in the program. He will be sewing on his cadet COLONEL rank as soon as his order gets here!
"Overall it was a really good course! I liked how despite the fact the course was condensed into 6-7 days and was intense, there was RPL and assessments were conducted so that many UoC were covered simultaneously. Now that is what I call good multitasking! Apart from having a great group of people to work and learn with, Sibby is a great teacher! There were a few days during the course that I had a headache where at times I wanted to sleep. However, Sibby kept me awake as she kept the pace up, made the material interesting and fun. Keeping adults awake is a talent. Thanks for a great course Sibby!" From VRA Australian Civil Air Patrol

Just a fyi to reassure each and every one in our area that there are some incredibly devoted young people among us, I would ask your consideration to attend the following event (simply to observe). This Saturday (May 24th at 0930), please feel free to attend the placement of American Flags on the graves of over 900 American & Allied Veterans graves. When these young people finish at Allied Veterans Cemetery (Krafft Rd & Gratiot Ave in Port Huron, MI), they walk over to the Federal Cemetery (Holland Ave & Walnut Streets) at Lakeside Cemetery. There they place Flags on the stones of Federal graves of those lost in battle & sickness over 150 years ago. While this may not sound like such a big deal, the whole project is done by some incredibly conscientious young people who are devoted to their Community and the right path in life. Their reverence to these fallen veterans and the American Flag is beyond description. They are all local residents and come from the Sea Cadets, Boy Scouts, & Civil Air Patrol. T . ...

Last night was Lt Suzette Torres' last meeting as a CAP member. I know the squadron will miss her greatly. People like Suzette are hard to come by in a volunteer organization. Thank you Suzette for all you did for Wesley Chapel Cadet Squadron, the Cadets, Group 3, and Civil Air Patrol.
Here is a brief history of my background that I know had prepared me for this endeavor. 7 years working for the State of West Virginia - 2 years with the DHHR Bureau for Children and Families, 5 years with the Dept of Education and the Arts Division of Rehabilitation Services Vocational Rehabilitation Unit (working with persons with disabilities and assist them in training for and finding employment). During that time I received a Distinguished Service Award for my work and service to persons with disabilities. I served as the Agency Liaison to the Consumer Advisory Council as well as served on the Board of Directors for PACE Enterprises. I have almost 30 years in Volunteer Service with Civil Air Patrol, the Air Force Auxiliary - during which time I have completed several training courses to include Leadership, Incident Management, Search and Rescue, Communications, and Safety. I have served as an observer to the City of Bridgeport's Active Shooter Drill and an evaluator for the WV Dept of Homeland Secu . ...

I was just watching the television news clips of the search for the missing balloonists in Virginia. Clip showed one of the ground search teams. They were Civil Air Patrol cadets (age 12-18). These young people are examples of what teens can become when they are taught leadership and integrity, and a belief in community service. Six cadets from Anderson and Knox Counties were involved in a recent search in Monroe County. They hiked up mountains and across ridge lines through out the night to reach a crash site.
I'm very pleased to announce that 27 members of squadron 144 have now been certified as the newest community emergency response team (“CERT”) in California. The members completed 32 hours of intensive training, simulations, and evaluation by CERT trainers and Cal fire members. The training was interesting, exciting, eventful, and extremely valuable. Additionally we will be training our own trainers so that we can build this capability further within our squadron and throughout each and every member of our group that wishes to participate. Squadron 144, and Group 8 now has its own autonomous, standalone CERT program that we administer, we control, we train, and we certify. This is an important milestone for squadron 144 in Group 8. It is the next important development in a resume of our capabilities. Our CERT team is one of only three Civil Air Patrol squadrons registered with FEMA in the United States. We will be sponsored directly by California Office of Emergency Services. This training provides ...
employers with more than 15 employees must grant eligible employees up to 10 days of leave per year for Civil Air Patrol duty.
Good morning everyone. It'll become mostly sunny today with a high of about 73 - then 77 tomorrow. A storm system that was off the coast of southern California before daybreak will move east toward Texas this weekend. This system will bring a chance of showers and thunderstorms after midnight Saturday night through Sunday night. A few strong to severe thunderstorms are possible. One of the most worthwhile events in Sulphur Springs is tomorrow morning at the airport. The Sulphur Springs Aviation Association and the Civil Air Patrol are giving free airplane rides to children between the ages of 8 - 17. Kids love it, and many thanks to the pilots who donate their time, aircraft and VERY expensive aviation fuel to this event. I will take grandson there, again, for sure.
Has anyone heard of this "sham" organization? Sounds like it a wanna be group. Buying your way into a military rank? Should have done that when I joined. I would have been a Fleet Admrial to start then US President to end my career. LOL The United States Army Volunteer Reserve Association is a volunteer organization unaffiliated with any military unit or reserve unit. The Los Angeles Times called it a "Phony Army unit" and referred to them as "faux military units". The group was once very visible in parades and civil ceremonies, but politicians and the Reserve Association now stays on a low key. The group officially formed in 2006, headquartering in Rosemead, California. Members could pay for various positions in the association, from $95 to become a sergeant to $335 for a lieutenant general. US Volunteer Reserve a scam for wanna-bees and losers - There is a volunteer organization under the US Army, much like the Civil Air Patrol under the Air Force. The originator of this thread is a liar. The American V ...

true story: when I was in Civil Air Patrol, we had a presentation from an Air Force recruiter that ended in a video...
For those of you who do not know, growing up, I had joined Civil Air Patrol, and later enlisted in the Marine Corps fresh out of high school. Although I never graduated boot camp due to an injury, i did learn a LOT while at Paris Island for several weeks. While there are several extended family that has bravely made the choice, I am the only person in my immediate family to pursue this most honored profession. This is what brings me the honor of escorting Larry McSweeney on this journey. While only my step-grandfather, I've always accepted him as my own. Over the years, we have bonded together in many things. Who can forget his performance in Lynn Wilke's rendition of the Mikado? Singing our National Anthem or America the Beautiful next to him in church at the microphone. While we were never in the Peru Fire department at the same time, we both wore the infamous patch with the six fingered hand wrapped around fire! Or who can forget the night of his and Marjorie McSweeney's anniversary dinner when Larry c ...
Pioneering aviator Willa Beatrice Brown Coffey served her country by training pilots for the U.S. Army Air Forces. She was the first black woman to receive a commission as a lieutenant in the U.S. Civil Air Patrol. Coffey was a founding member of the National Airmen’s Association of America, an organization that lobbied Congress for the racial integration of the US Army Air Corps. Her efforts were responsible for Congress’ creation of the Tuskegee Airmen, which eventually led to the integration of the U.S. military service in 1948. Coffey’s husband, Cornelius R. Coffey, was also a pilot who became one of the Tuskegee Airmen. Willa Beatrice Brown (January 22, 1906 – July 18, 1992) was an American aviator and educator. Willa Brown Chappell was a 1927 graduate of the Indiana State Teachers College with a degree in education. She received an M.B.A. from Northwestern University in 1937. As a young high school teacher in Gary, Indiana, and later as a social worker in Chicago, Willa Brown felt that her t ...

Thursday the Senate paused for a minute to honor former senator and friend, John Bulloch. It was great to see John in the chamber again and I wish him and his beautiful family all the best. We celebrated the annual Civil Air Patrol (CAP) Day on Thursday to thank them for their nonprofit work and years of service to the community through emergency services, aerospace education and youth development. Also, I had the privilege of introducing the Georgia Forestry Commission Units of the Year to recognize their continued achievements in leadership and education of protecting Georgia’s forest resources. Congratulations to the Chattahoochee/Marion Unit on being named the 2013 Southern Unit of the Year, Franklin/Hart/Elbert/Madison Forestry Unit for being named the 2013 Northern Unit of the Year and the Satilla District on being named the 2013 District of the Year.

Concerning the missing jetliner from Malaysia. First graph: AP story. The rest from NewsTalk 1340 WJRW... James K. Davis of Vero Beach, Florida, is a retired commercial pilot who has worked for the Civil Air Patrol in searching for missing aircraft. He said this morning on "The Buzz with Michelle McKormick" the flight’s disappearance is likely due to one of three things: “Its transponder being stopped deliberately. Number two, electrical failure. Or, the plane’s disintegration.” A primary way that airplanes are tracked across oceans is through Automatic Dependent Surveillance. Davis says the plane transmits its own signal, and gives its position via satellite: “These satellites usually only ping a commercial aircraft about once every 60 seconds. You know, a lot can happen in 60 seconds. If the aircraft were to have descended – let’s say it descended 5,000 feet during that minute – it would’ve appeared to have fallen off of what we’re (the media) wrongly calling radar.” So, Davis says ...
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WITH THE FUNDS APPROPRIATED FOR EDUCATION.FYI! Pittman included many juicy ham hocks and stuffed sucklings for his voracious followers including: $500,000 presumably for the Commerce Department for trips to Paris and Canada, $250,000 for the Supreme Court Library (but zero for the entire state’s school libraries), $1,500,000 for legislators to dole out in districts, $75,000 for the Civil Air Patrol, $192,000 for the Forestry Black Belt Initiative, $220,000 for the Sports Hall of Fame, $650,000 for the Greater Birmingham Convention and Visitors Bureau, $1 million for the Insurance Information and Research Center, whatever that is, and $430,000 for the State Law Enforcement Agency (but not one penny for school safety to protect our children and faculties from shooters). My favorite is $95,000 for a Special Outreach Program at UA. I just wonder who the person is receiving that Special Outreach. Maybe Sen. Gerald Allen knows something about that one.

Headed back to the hotel after meeting with 6 of our Congressional and 2 of our a Senatorial representatives. It was a good day's work for Civil Air Patrol. The cadets on our team were awesome!
Went to Capitol Hill today to speak to congressmen and women about Civil Air Patrol. As an added bonus, I was able to reconnect with friends from across the country, some that I hadn't seen in years! These are all people that serve in an organization that gives no pay, and often asks a lot. They are genuinely good people who become the change that they want to see in the world, and I feel blessed for having met every one of them!

Honored to meet with the Pennsylvania Wing of the Civil Air Patrol this morning and hear a report about their mission
Ladies and gentlemen, I want you all to remember that as times may be tough and that our country may be going through a rough time, it is no excuse to be careless and distracted from everyday life. I had that experence yesterday and it was a real wake up call. I had the unfortunate experence of almost taking the life of an innocent pedestrian as I was leaving a meeting last night. It has been a very tramutic experence and caused me to do a lot of reflection and live every day of my life in the here and now. As I said, we may be going through a tough time in our country but we all must remember to be vigilant in our every day lives. I was EXTREMELY lucky that the young woman I struck was able to get up and walk away after we called the police and rescue crews who I must say were extremely professional in how everything was handled. I am walking away with a very very minor traffic offense and only have to pay a small fine for my mistake. But the tramutic and adrennalin filled experence has taken it's toll o ...

This goes back before my time even. Does anyone recall the Civil Air Patrol? My Dad was in that. Maybe it was before WW2? He was in the army during the war so it might have been pre-war?

Civil air patrol today going to sign up actually
Interested in aviation? You're invited to the Civil Air Patrol Indiana Wing's conference on March 22.
I've mentioned this before from time to time and just found the article I had read back in, apparently, 1971. This is NO different than what I see from the right wing conservative extremists. They took their lead from Soviet disinformation. It is currently rampant in our culture and media, with the leader being, yes, you guessed it, Fox News. When I first read this back in the 70s I laughed at first. Then I got more serious about what this meant to the Russian people and those deluded enough to believe it. Then I also realized that in a way, it was true. I did go into the military as an adult. But then I also went into the Civil Air Patrol which is an Auxiliary of the US Air Force. But we were searched for down civilian small aircraft, not training to kill Soviets. Still, had they invaded, we would have been an instant civilian force of young people lead a great deal by military adults called, "Seniors". Most conspiracy theory is based in truth and then twisted to met an agenda that alters the truth every ...

" When I was 14 years old and a cadet in the Massachusetts Civil Air Patrol -- an official Air Force Auxiliary -- I'd been enrolled for over a year and didn't have a single minute in an airplane. So when my CAP squadron had a contest for selling Kathryn Beich candies with a prize of several hours flight time I made an all-out effort and set up a table in front of a local supermarket, where I was outselling everyone else in the squadron by several times. I was clearly going to win. So what did the cadet supervisor do? He came by my table and took half my stock of candy to "redistribute" to other cadets who were selling door to door. I folded up my table, resigned from the Civil Air Patrol, and had learned my first lesson about the nature of statism." ~ J Neil Schulman

No matter if you are an experienced outdoors person or a novice, taking a fully charged smartphone or a personal locator beacon (PLB) with you on your adventures could save your life! By having your phone with you and turned on, the Civil Air Patrol cell phone forensics team can triangulate data off of cell towers narrowing down the search area. With a PLB the search area is even more defined. On Saturday, the Wyoming Joint Operations Center requested Air Force Rescue Coordination Center assistance to help search for five missing snowmobilers in Sheridan County. The five individuals rented snowmobiles Saturday morning for the day in the Big Horn Mountain area. When they failed to check in at the end of the day, a search ensued. The AFRCC coordinated with the CAP cell phone forensics team greatly reducing the search area. Using the cell data provided by CAP, local ground teams located the snowmobilers and transported them to safety. 5-SAVES

Monday was a great day. Mentally I did an inventory of my life. I truly have no reason at all to complain about anything. I have an awesome family. My wife Janel, is the only person I have ever met that can put up with my craziness, and I love her more now than I did yesterday, but not as much as I will tomorrow. My kids totally ROCK, I took Jeb to get a haircut today and he REQUESTED a Flat top just like I wore in the 82d AIRBORNE. He is 12 and I can not help but see a man standing there. I have a comfortable home, and even my dogs are cool. I like my job. I am involved with my Church, my kids school, and Civil Air Patrol along with Jeb. Trinity is becoming a fine musician and turning into a young lady. IF all this were not enough, I KNOW that we are all Saved By Grace through Faith in Jesus Christ. I am not perfect. I am still opinionated, uber-conservative (Which I do not see as a problem), and not very compassionate. I do not handle Stupid very well, as in I have no problem looking someon ...

She was the first African-American woman to receive her commercial pilot’s license in America AND the first black female to become an officer in the U.S. Civil Air Patrol. She also earned her MBA from Northwestern, and co-founded the Coffey School of Aeronautics to help train African-American pilots. What have you done lately? Yep, that's what I thought...

Civil Air Patrol: A closer look at the mission -...
Group 5 (Texas Wing) Cadet Programs will host Airman Leadership School on May 9-11 2014 in San Antonio TX. Airman Leadership School (ALS) is the first step in the Texas Wing Cadet Training and Education Program (CTEP). ALS is the foundation of CTEP, and the first exposure cadets will receive to Texas Wing training standards. So that training standards can be met, it will be necessary to maintain an environment which will foster a feeling of pride, identity and accomplishment for each cadet.

@ Thomas, Leclair, and Oso and Action Magazine of Martial Arts The Martial Arts as we know it, is now becoming extinct. People growing up in this generation (kids) do not want to take the time learning a worthwhile endeavor. They would rather stay home playing mindless video games. My son and I joined Civil Air Patrol about 3 weeks ago. There the youth are of a different struture. They are more strutured and want to do something with thier lifes. At the beginning of the session they were thinking of activities they might do for 2014. Subjects such as da bold step (being a newbie and evrything) and fiel suggested a Karate Demonstation. I told them that my Master could show up at a meeting and my school could give a demomsration, teacha few self defense moves, and break boards and stuff. I used my best "Lee Marvin" voice! :) I say this for all the instructore, sirs, sokes, and sifus, etc listening. This might give them an idea. I also plan to take flyers there in January 2014 offering them one or two free . ...
JOHN KENNETH HELTON (October 20, 1942 - July 6, 1967) Johnny Helton was my cousin. (he’ll always be ‘Johnny’ to me) His mom was my dad’s cousin. We lived next door to each other on North 8th Street all the way through grammar school at Northside, middle school at Spalding Jr. High, and then Griffin High. We only separated after high school when our lives took different directions. I went off to school and Johnny joined the Marines in 1963. We were born in the same month, the same year, but I was two weeks older. However, prior to that, we were both in Troop 4, Boy Scouts of America, with the Scoutmaster Dr. W. R. Gilbert. We met every Tuesday evening in the old Methodist Memorial Hall behind the First Methodist Church downtown. We took camping trips together and went to summer camp at Camp Thunder. We were in the Civil Air Patrol together and met at the Griffin Airport once a week. In the early 60s, after high school and before we went our separate ways, we both worked for the Georgia Highw ...
A former Civil Air Patrol cadet, Nathan Secrest, a doctoral candidate in astrophysics wants to inform the Squadron that the following high powered national astronomical conference is to occur here in Washington in January. Interested non-professionals are invited: If you thought January was going to be boring, here is an event to consider! THIS IS THE SUPER BOWL OF ASTRONOMY. AAS 223: A Stimulus Package for Astronomy in the Nation’s Capital Monday, September 30, 2013 - 00:00 If you ask most people what big event occurs in Washington, DC, every four years, they’ll probably say the presidential inaugural. For astronomers, though, the answer is the return of the AAS winter meeting — the “Super Bowl of Astronomy” — to the nation’s capital. Every quadrennial DC meeting seems to set an attendance record, and during the last one in 2010 it became clear that we’d outgrown the Marriott Wardman Park north of Dupont Circle. The 223rd AAS meeting, 5-9 January 2014, will be held in a new venue: the *** ...
