Problem is, I can't get fingerprints taken as yet due to Virus and wish to attend a drill or two as required prior to my retirement in June.

Had a ton of fun at the 2017 Oceana Airshow! My summer intern, Christian, is also a Civil Air Patrol Cadet at the Coastal Composite Squadron with my daughter, Mary. Christian demonstrated the robot he designed and built, that provides real-time tracking of fused CBRN sensor data from detection equipment, mounted on the robot. We were able to track the robot and all of its sensors, onsite from the ground station and simultaneously from remote locations. As well as being a technological success, Christian's demonstration attracted the attention of potential new users of Blueforce technology, as well as potential new recruits for CAP. Way to go, Christian! Go Civil Air Patrol! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ern_-5lcuhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ern_-5lcuCgCg
So glad to join this amazing unit! #095
Congrats Capt. Hewitt-Qualls on new Squad Commander. Also congrats to CMSgt Kandiyeli on Deputy Squad Command along with 1st Lt. Jonathan Rose on Honor Guard Commander. You guys earned it!
Funny thing is that I'm the most militaristic student in my school, doing faces everywhere, marching, and even teaching others how to do movements. "Attention! Right face! Salute! Arms down! Foward march! Left, left, left, left right left!"
