Unfortunately, this Memorial Day we were unable to pay our respects as a group due to the pandemic; however, we pause to take a moment in honor of the sacrifices made by our men and women of our armed forces for our country. If so inclined, please donate a wreath that will be laid in their honor this coming December by visiting and sharing our link: www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/ny0200p
Back to work and school! What did you do over your break? If you weren’t vacationing with your family, then hopefully you took to the skies. We had four (4) first-timers from our squadron take their orientation flight in our Cessnas last week. Pictured Cadet Airman Ethan Garcia at KISP. #CivilAirPatrol #cadetlife
We congratulate Cadet Michael Turecamo (pictured with his parents) on his well-deserved accolade of Long Island Group Cadet NCO of the Year 2019. Turecamo is a high achiever both inside and outside of CAP. Academically, he is an AP Scholar with Distinction. Within CAP, he is Chairperson of the Long Island Group Cadet Advisory Council; active in all squadron activities; is well respected by senior members, his peers, and subordinates; and is truly a gentleman. There isn’t a more finer choice for this award. Congratulations and we are so proud of you!!! #CivilAirPatrol #cadetlife
The 15th Annual Military Ball at Villa Lombardi was last night and everyone looked great and had a great time. We appreciate our family and friends who came out to celebrate with us.
Financial well-being is just as important as academic success and emergency preparedness. Thankfully, Paula Mucci, AFC, FFC, Personal Financial Counselor from the 106th ANG spent some time with our cadets to discuss financial behaviors, budgeting, and financial goals. Civil Air Patrol isn’t one dimension; we seek to engage our cadets in all aspects of life. Curious? Feel free to contact us to visit our meetings. #CivilAirPatrol #cadetlife
Promotion ceremony 15 Jan 2020: congratulations to cadet Jose S. Valdivia on his promotion to Cadet Chief Master Sergeant. We look forward to your leadership and mentorship. #civilairpatrol #cadetlife
What we do at squadron meetings is a small percentage of the entire CAP Cadet Program experience. Our cadets embrace the program and we are very proud of their accomplishments. We welcome our newest Cadet 2nd Lieutenant Michael Turecamo. Our officers earn their rank the old fashioned way and pass on that hard work ethic to the cadre. We welcome our newest Cadet Airman Ethan A. Garcia and we celebrate the promotions of C/A1C Trinity Lannerd and C/SrA Hasnaat A. Rana. Outstanding job airmen! #CivilAirPatrol #cadetlife
As this evening begins, we want to wish Happy Chanukah for all the families that celebrate.
