Civil Air Patrol looking for Recruits
An auxiliary of the Air Force since 1948, the Civil Air Patrol is focused around three humanitarian missions: Aerospace Education, Cadet Programs, and Emergency Services. Activities in Aerospace Education includes educating new members and the community. Cadet Programs revolves around developing the next generation of aerospace pioneers, building leaders of the future, and volunteerism. And, the Emergency Services program includes conducting inland search & rescues and working with homeland security.
Youths 12 to 21 are taught the importance of serving their community, respecting one another, leadership, physical fitness, self-disciple and teamwork. Cadets also get the experience of flying in one of CAP's aircraft, participate in a one week long basic training experience held at a military installation, build and launch rockets, and earn awards/grade by progressing through the program. Now, for some more good news...any adult over 21 interested can also become a member. Similar programs are available to adults as well, including CAP’s Professional Development.
Any youths/seniors interested in becoming part of this amazing experience should look into attending an Open House hosted by the Middletown Cadet Squadron on the 23rd of October at 7:00pm. The Open House will be located at the VFW Post 3792 - Sgt William Lloyd Nelson, 5695 Summit Bridge Road, Townsend, DE. There will be members on hand to answer all your questions, in addition to conducting their monthly awards/promotions ceremony. Stop by and visit with the cadets and senior staff to see what adventures await you.
