Chapter 366 Supports Civil Air Patrol Squadron ...

Jerry West, our chapter VP/Vet/Govt Affairs, continues to be a leader of the Cape Fear Civil Air Patrol Squadron. They currently have 27 cadet members and 17 senior members. In our last newsletter we reported in detail many of the squadron’s activities. To insure they are able to continue such a level of involvement, our chapter officers recently voted to provide them $500 in support of their 2018 program. In case you missed the previous article, here’s a brief look at their recent activities: - Two teams participated in the AFA sponsored National Youth Cyber Defense Competition (CyberPatriot). Both teams placed near the top of their division in North Carolina. - In Aerospace Education the cadets have been studying drone operations and recently built and fired single stage Alpha III rockets. - In December the cadets took an active part in Wreaths Across America, serving as flag bearers and escorts. The squadron meets every Monday night at 1900 at the DAV Building, 4201 Park Avenue. Cadets aged 12 – 18 are encouraged to attend the meetings and join the program. They are always in need of senior members to work with the cadets and fill the numerous staff positions required to run a squadron.
