Key Field ANG, MS- On 27 February 2014 Cadet Ryan Howard of the G.V. Montgomery Composite Squadron was promoted to the highest rank of the cadet program, Cadet Colonel, by his parents Maj’s Scott and Cathy Howard during the squadrons weekly meeting. Cadet Colonel is the highest rank a cadet can achieve.
“I made a promise to a cadet even before I joined that that I would make it to the top,” Cadet Howard stated. He followed that up with, “I am very grateful to have been allowed to fulfill that promise.”
Cadet Howard joined the Squadron, which is part of the Civil Air Patrol, in 2007, and began his more than 5 year journey through the cadet program to achieve the highest rank possible in the cadet program, and he has earned the Spaatz Award, the highest achievement in the Civil Air Patrol cadet programs.
The Civil Air Patrol cadet program is composed of 16 achievement and 5 milestone awards. Each achievement requires the cadet to study and pass tests in leadership and aerospace education subject matter. They are also required to participate in a character development and a physical fitness program. The cadet must be an active participant in the squadron, and display character and maturity commensurate with the achievement or milestone award that they are competing for.
The G.V. Montgomery Composite Squadron is located on Key Field ANG in Meridian, MS, and meets every Thursday from 5:30 pm until 8:30 pm. The cadet program consists of teenagers from 12 to 21 years old. There is also an adult program for people interested in our program which is open for people over the age of 18.

Cadet Hamhari Brown and Cadet Steven Gort took the air last Saturday with orientation pilot Jerry Eichelberger in Cleveland Mississippi. Cadets Brown, and Gort, members of the Cleveland squadron had a great experience in the CAP 182T Cessna. Cadet Brown, a ninth grader attending Cleveland High School, said that the steep turns and the actual “hands on” flying were very exciting. Cadet Gort, a 13 year old 7th grader from D.M. Smith Middle School, was more interested in the technology of the G-1000 navigation system that the C-182T uses. Both cadets are studying Aerospace History and Aerospace Science in addition to their required school studies.
