Once again our ride is here! What are you riding in today?

A nostalgic feeling as one cadet takes his final flight two others take up on their first flight. As others move forward to lead, others begin to take flight. Civil Air Patrol, Lake County Cadet Squadron. "Ascendunt ala sicut aquilae"

So a couple months ago, I got to do some air crew training with Civil Air Patrol just never posted it until now. This was in May. My ride got in early that morning where we flew from Valparaiso to Purdue West Lafayette, picked up another member. Then flew to Monticello. Then back to Purdue to drop off the member and back to Valparaiso. Long day, but Had an awesome time, great learning experience. You all should try it some time. Special thanks to Capt Ralph Bellorado for taking the time to fly with us.

Great turnout tonight at the Halloween in the park. Although we were not able to help with parking vehicles this time around we still took advantage of making it a more public community outreach event. Cadets were able to speak with residents about the Civil Air Patrol. As well as help with safety, surveillance, and crowd control. It was a great night. The cadets were able to receive a lot of compliments and gratitude tonight both by the residents and the City of Lake Station. Great job out there everyone!

This past Saturday I had the opportunity to receive Lake County Cadet Squadron's First Quality Cadet Unit Award. This Award means a lot to me and to the Unit, it shows just how far we have come over the past 4 years and it shows the hard work and dedication put forth. We will continue to work hard and drive for much bigger goals, this is a really good start. I want to thank all of Lake County Squadron's Senior Members and Cadets for making this possible.

Here at the Mobile Veterans wall in Highland,IN. Cadets are assisting individuals and families find their relatives names on the Memorial Wall. Cadets are enjoying the stories told by some of the relatives here. Feelings of nostalgia, and the sacrifices made bring chills yet a sense of peace to some of the minds here. A sense of solemness is in the air.

Posted this last night, but couldn't on the CAP Facebook for some reason, but you know what 9/12 is significant too because it's the day after the disaster that people came together, so Here you go...

In Memory of 9/11

The Earth Stood Still...
It's hard to believe that it has been almost 2 decades since the events of 9/11. 18 years ago while all aircraft were grounded The Civil Air Patrol was one of the only ones allowed in the sky to take aerial photos and damage assessment. It had such an impact that 9/11 was one of the only days I can remember exactly where I was and what I was doing. I also remember being back at home and not seeing a single aircraft in the air for quite some time, I believe days went by. Some of you weren't even born yet, or where very young during these events. I remember gas prices going from $1.50 up to $4 a gallon in moments notice. I remember gas price gouging, and everyone filling their cars up as well as filling up additional containers of gas; and grocery stores full of people as they began to overstock there home. You would have thought that not only was New York, Pennsylvania, and the Pentagon was under attack , but the entire country as of something out of a scene in "Red Dawn". I also seen the world for once come together and Unite. However brief it was, it was both bitter and sweet, but it showed me that we can come together, especially in times of need.

I give my condolences to all those lost, but I want to thank all of our military personnel, all of our Fire and EMS, Police, and First Responders, Volunteer organizations, and last but not least the members of the Civil Air Patrol, United States Air Force Auxiliary. God bless all.

General information

Civil Air Patrol is a congressionally chartered, non-profit organization (and youth organization) and Official Auxiliary of the United States Air Force. Civil Air Patrol has three primary missions: Cadet Programs, Aerospace Education, and Emergency Services. *Our cadet program focuses on leadership skills, aerospace education, and physical fitness and character development. Our cadets are able to participate in a number of activities, both within the state and across the nation *Aerospace Education is an integral part of Civil Air Patrol for both cadets and adult members. Members learn about the history of flight and discuss the future of air and space exploration. Cadets experience the thrill of flight through both powered and glider orientation rides where their “book” knowledge of aerodynamics is demonstrated in the air. *Emergency Services: Today, CAP handles 90 percent of inland search and rescue missions, with approximately 75 lives saved each year. CAP members as a whole are generally the first on the scene transmitting satellite digital images of the damage within seconds in their communities as well as around the world and providing disaster relief and emergency services following natural and manmade disasters, including such phenomena as 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, the Griffith tornado, and the floods caused by the after effects of Hurricane Ike. We are also an avid Community Supporter of the City of Lake Station, and throughout the Northwest Indiana Area. Indeed, Civil Air Patrol makes a huge impact each and every day, going above and beyond to make a profound difference in America's communities. As a vigilant CAP volunteer, you save lives and preserve liberty for all. Thank you for your service
