This past Tuesday was very busy. Our cadet executive staff changed over and announced our new line and support staff, we had a parent meeting, cadet promotions, Wingman class taught by 2d Lt Oakes, and we had a class on proper radio usage taught by 2d Lt Steel.

Our parent meeting covered important information for parents. Specifically, 1st Lt Maxfield discussed our implementation of the Wingman program, informed parents of important dates and events, and reminded them that both she and our squadron commander, Maj Henderson are always available to answer any questions they may have.
Cadet Technical Sergeants North and Vermillion both received their Lindberg achievements and promoted to C/MSgt.
2d Lt Oakes presented a video on the Pardo Push and talked about the Wingman Program, how integrity is more than simply doing what is right when no one is looking and extremely important, and how it is important to look out for the safety of our fellow cadets. 2d Lt Steele gave a presentation on ICUT covering the first two videos with an introduction to the CAP radio system, why we have radio systems, and why those radio systems are important.
