Bethel NY, 4.23.20 — Civil Air Patrol’s Sullivan County Cadet Squadron, based at the Sullivan County International Airport, had the honor of hosting Major General Mark E. Smith via video conference Thursday evening. The Cadets and Senior Members had the opportunity to ask General Smith questions about his career, duties as the National Commander of Civil Air Patrol, and the future of Civil Air Patrol. Major General Mark E. Smith is Civil Air Patrol’s 24th National Commander. He leads CAP’s more than 65,000 members across the United States.
Ten weeks of planning, design, creation, and persistence, an exploration of aerospace science and history, articulate, professional presentation, and not one, but two cadet-made working wind tunnels. This is what Civil Air Patrol is all about. Congratulations to the hard-working cadets of the Sullivan County Cadet Squadron!
We took a flight in a C-17! Thank you to the 105th Airlift Wing based at Stewart Airport for hosting us. You can read all about it in the The Wayne Independent.
Civil Air Patrol (CAP) is an auxiliary of the United States Air Force. All members are volunteers who want to better our community, state, and nation. At the Sullivan County Cadet Flight, cadets are involved in drill and classes to prepare them for volunteer work (parades, patrols, and more) and for missions (search and rescue, mission scanner, and more), doing their best in the safest way possible. CAP offers activities that members probably won't experience anywhere else. Kids can join as a cadet from 12 to 17 years of age and those who are 18 and older can join as a senior member.
Our meetings are held at the Sullivan County Airport, Thursday evenings from 6:15-8:30. Make the first right off the circle and we meet in building 75 on the left. Park to the left of the building, walk through the gate and enter through the double glass doors. We are on the second floor.
