Last night, Squadron 9 witnessed a pinning in history! We stand beside the first cadet in Squadron 9 to earn Civil Air Patrol’s highest cadet honor, the General Carl A. Spaatz Award. This is a promotion of distinction to Cadet Colonel. Congratulations Cadet Colonel Max S. Weiss! C/Col Weiss joined CAP when he turned 12 years old. Influenced by his father, Major Warren M. Weiss who was a cadet back in the 80’s, C/Col Weiss realized early on that joining would be a great way to distinguish himself from his peers in a unique way. CAP has been inspirational to C/Col Weiss in that he states CAP exudes enthusiasm in excelling through achievements because of the positive reputation both within and outside of the organization. In addition to being a high achiever in CAP, C/Col Weiss has a passion of writing about History and enjoys the subject of English. He is a member of the National Honor Society; is involved with the mock trial team at school; and is a member of the Track and Wresting teams. At the age of 17, the immediate horizon brings C/Col Weiss with a set of goals on studying Pre- Law in college and getting involved with the AFROTC. If his trajectory doesn’t take him to the Air Force Academy, he will commission in the Air Force after college, then continue to Law school. We salute the commitment to character, leadership, aerospace education, and a healthy and drug-free lifestyle as demonstrated by this exceptional cadet. Please join us in celebrating his fine achievement! *** The General Carl A. Spaatz Award is Civil Air Patrol’s highest cadet honor. It is presented to cadets who have demonstrated excellence in leadership, character, fitness, and aerospace education. Cadets qualify for this prestigious award after devoting an average of five years to progress through sixteen achievements in the CAP Cadet Program. Along the way they develop self-discipline, a strong sense of personal responsibility, the ability to lead and persuade, and the foundation necessary for pursuing a career in aviation, space, or technology. #CadetLife #Spaatz #CivilAirPatrol
Promotion ceremony 7 November 2018: Congratulations to Cadets Nick Chen and Matthew P. Moore on their promotion to Cadet Master Sergeant. Outstanding!
Our Cadets who are working toward their ground team certification were invited to complete their First Aid/ CPR/AED training. A special thank you to The Bagel Palace in Manorville for providing breakfast, 1st Lt Granger for the venue, and Justin Gallo (CPR and OSHA trainer) for a job well done. It wasn’t just the standard AHA training, but enhanced with entertaining video clips and amputated body parts. The Cadets loved it. #CadetLife #CPR
