Last night we kicked off a New Year with a celebration of the 20th Anniversary for 1st Lt. Lauren Granger! 1st Lt. Granger started CAP just a few months before her 13th birthday. At the time when she joined CAP, her brother was the Cadet Commander of Squadron 9. Talk about keeping it in the family! Her first encampment was spent at Fort Drum during her first year in which she was the youngest in her flight and was awarded Bravo's Flight Cadet of the Year at the graduation ceremony! Over the years of dedicated service to CAP, 1st Lt. Granger served as the first female Cadet Commander of Squadron 9; Emergency Services Training Officer; Administrative, Personnel and Testing Officer; and Finance Officer. 1st Lt Granger states “Civil Air Patrol is an amazing stepping stone in life if you use all the tools and opportunities CAP offers you. There are so many different options/directions from which to choose and I have made life long friends and connections through this program that never would have happened if I weren’t apart of it.” Congratulations to 1st Lt. Granger and a sincere gratitude for her service of 20 years to the Civl Air Patrol. #CivilAirPatrol #SeniorMember #CAPLife.
After presenting his essay and delivering a speech explaining why America’s aerospace power is vital to national security, Cadet Chief Master Sergeant Joshua Berkowitz earned his Armstrong ribbon bringing him one step closer to the coveted Billy Mitchell Award. Congratulations Cadet!
