Ladies and Gentlemen:

Just a short note to thank you all again for attending this year's annual conference. I hope you had a great experience and enjoyed the learning opportunities through the various seminars. Many congratulations to all the end of year award recipients and to those who received decorations. I would also like to recognize our OUTSTANDING cadets who participated in posting of the colors at both the general assembly and the awards banquet. Great job!

It is a great way to recognize cadets for excellence in academics.

·         Maintain this average over a consecutive three-achievement/milestone span, with no time frame.

·         Scores will be calculated based on the first passing score of the test. Second attempt scores will not be considered.

·         The cadet will be a member in good standing.

Message From the Commander: Summer Safety Message

Ladies and Gentlemen:

We're fast approaching a very dangerous period we call the 101 Critical Days of Summer, to include our upcoming summer encampment. Below is an excerpt from an old “sentinel” which still holds true today:

"101 Critical Days" is the historically accident-filled period of time between Memorial Day Weekend, which begins 29 May, and Labor Day Weekend, ending 6 September. Summer time, unfortunately, is a time we place ourselves at greatest risk. With long-awaited vacations and weekends filled with CAP activities, we tend to be over-anxious and a little less attentive in our eagerness to enjoy all our carefully planned events. Eagerness and inattention can be a tragic combination. We want the summer of 2016 to be an enjoyable and mishap-free summer, but it requires extra effort from everyone to be especially careful, diligent and safety conscious. Remember, Operational Risk Management (ORM) can work as well at a weekend BBQ as it can at a CAP flight activity. You simply must identify the hazards, assess how risky they are and come up with a plan to minimize or eliminate the risk. So please take the time to examine each situation of each activity and consider the consequences of not making safety a part of every decision. Let's stay safe this summer! Thanks for your safety advocacy."

Semper Vigilans,


Col. Mallory D. “Mal” Woodcock, CAP
