Congratulations to Captain Fenolio for Commander’s Commendation for 2022 NLD Performance. From Commander Ross Veta.
"I would like to commend each of you for the superior performance of your duties as Group
Government Relations Advisors for the California Wing of the Civil Air Patrol. This year’s Virtual
National Legislative Day demanded a great deal of dedication from our Government Relations
staff and your initiative led to California again holding more congressional office meetings than
any other wing. As you well know, the appropriations the Civil Air Patrol receives from
Congress is essential, not just to our ability to perform our missions for the citizens of California
and the Nation, but also to our existence as an organization.
On behalf of the California Wing of the Civil Air Patrol, thank you for your diligence and
commitment".
