Congratulations to the two cadets who earned a FIND ribbon this weekend. In spite of the cold weather (-10F when we left Lebanon), the cadets volunteered for the weekend’s Search and Rescue Exercise. During that exercise, we received a real mission from the AFRCC – an active 121.5 ELT. An air sortie narrowed it down to the Lawrence MA airport. A ground team, including the two cadets, used the portable DF to locate and deactivate the ELT on the ramp at.
From all of us to all of you.
No meeting on Christmas Eve or New Year’s Eve.
We had an exciting meeting last night! The Wing Director of Cadet Programs came and talked to the cadets about NCOLS, National Cadet Special Activities and the NH-UK Exchange. Applications are open NOW. We followed that up by an presentation on the Space Race and a couple of promotions. Congratulations to our new C/AMN and C/A1C!
The Lebanon Composite Squadron volunteered as parking marshalls for One Starry Night again this year. Many thanks to all who gave their Friday evening to ensure a safe experience for all the visitors.
1LT Ben Stallman, our Cadet Commander in 2012, visited the cadets yesterday. It was a great opportunity for the cadets to talk with him about his post-high school experiences.
The cadets took a break from their drill training to admire the brilliant sunset over the flight line.
