Congratulations , Maj Fletcher!

Virginia Wing,

Please join me in congratulating Major Gregory Fletcher to the position of Group 4 Commander. Major Fletcher will bring a wealth of knowledge to the group command position as the former commander of the Fredericksburg Composite Squadron and the Wing Public Affairs officer. His dedication and experience will continue the growth in the group.

I will also like to thank Lt Col Leslie Vazquez for making the Group 4 experiment a huge success. Her work, dedication and knowledge took Group 4 to what it is today, a powerhouse in the wing. I wish her and her personal driver (Maj Gen Vazquez) all the success and happiness this next chapter in Florida will bring.

Since we postponed our conference this weekend, we did a small ceremony in front of the HQ, and yes we social distanced as much as possible!

Stay Healthy and Safe.

V/R

Deano

Knight Squadron members,

Oracle Corporation has informed us that they are unwilling to continue hosting our Squadron Meetings in their facility. This is unfortunate because it is a great facility.
Last week was our last meeting there. Our meeting location this week is uncertain, we will let you know as soon as possible.
If any of you are aware of other facilities that might be available, even temporarily, please research it and let Squadron Executive Committee know using this email address: [email protected] We are checking libraries and schools.
Obviously we would like a free/donated location, but we may need to rent a facility temporarily. Leesburg Squadron has a similar problem with the Leesburg Armory, so if you have locations in Leesburg, they would be interested in knowing. Use the same email address above and we will pass it to them.
We understand that change is stressful, and we will make every effort to keep you informed and take your concerns seriously.

Congratulations C/Col Mogili.

Congratulations C/Col Mogili.

The Carl A. Spaatz Award was presented to C/Col Abhishek Mogili of Leesburg Composite Squadron by the National Commander, Maj Gen Mark Smith, during the annual awards ceremony of the 2018 National Conference held in Anaheim, CA.

The General Carl A. Spaatz Award is Civil Air Patrol’s highest cadet honor. It is presented to cadets who have demonstrated excellence in leadership, character, fitness, and aerospace education.

Cadets qualify for this prestigious award after devoting an average of five years to progress through sixteen achievements in the CAP Cadet Program. Along the way they develop self-discipline, a strong sense of personal responsibility, the ability to lead and persuade, and the foundation necessary for pursuing a career in aviation, space, or technology.

The Spaatz Award is named in honor of Carl “Tooey” Spaatz, the first Chief of Staff of the United States Air Force. One of the giants in the history of airpower, in 1929 Spaatz, together with another pilot, set an important flight endurance record of 150 hours and 40 minutes in the early days of aviation. During World War II, he commanded the Allied air campaign against the Nazis. In the Pacific Theater, the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki took place under his command. After retiring from the Air Force, General Spaatz served as the first chairman of the Civil Air Patrol National Board.

On average, only five cadets in one thousand earn the Spaatz Award. Spaatz Cadets are expected to serve as role models for junior cadets, and become leaders in their communities as they enter adulthood. The first recipient of the Spaatz Award, Michigan’s Douglas C. Roach, served as a pilot with the Air Force Thunderbirds.

Congratulations to C/Col Mogili, #2174, on earning the Carl A. Spaatz Award. Bravo Zulu!
