C/CMSgt Austin Penchoen-lind received his Mitchel Award tonight. Now as a cadet officer, C/2Lt. Penchoen-lind is eligible to enter the US Military at an advanced rank. C/2Lt. Penchoen-lind will be entering the US Marine Corps next month as a Private First Class (PFC).
Our cadets were honored to be invited to the 2017 Western Region FIDF Gala, at the Beverly Hills Hilton. They were asked to present the colors for this event. The last few years a few of our Senior members are honored for their Military Service, which includes Honoring the Israeli Defense Forces. Our cadets performance was amazing!
Attention, all CAP members in AKWG, CAWG, ORWG and WGWG:
Beginning on January 22, 2018, Alaska, California, Oregon and Washington will be on travel restrictions due to the REAL ID Act of 2005. As a result, the drivers licenses in these states will no longer be accepted for airline travel and people in these states will need either a passport or a passport card to board a flight. This could affect CAP members traveling to the 2018 Legislative Day/Winter Command Council meeting March 1-3 in Washington, D.C., and/or any other CAP travel after Jan. 22 of next year.
Please consider that there will be an expected rush on getting passports/passport cards in these noncompliant states, so everyone is encouraged to apply for a passport/passport card today.
