The Truth Behind it   Leave a comment

Good Evening Cadets!

This post is to Active Duty Military personal, or Retired. Today’s topic is going to be kinda long, but I hope that It touches the hearts of our Military Personal, and or Active Duty. Have you ever heard of the United States Civil Air Patrol which is connected to the United States Air Force? Well, when I joined our Squadron I had a very pleasing welcoming. Our Squadron bases all of our drill, ceremonies, promotions, uniform inspection, missions, and many other things as they would in the United States Air Force. Well, I have now been in our Squadron for 4 months, and I am a Cadet Airman 1st Class. ( Kinda like Private first Class). The Civil Air Patrol is a great place for cadets to get a feeling for the Air Force. Before I had found out about the Civil Air Patrol I had always wondered how I could serve my country as a teen. That’s when my best friend told me about CAP. Our Squadron has really come a very long way, and I hope that I can be a great leader in our squadron. Now, CAP requires a lot of things from you, and they want you to memorize things. One of the things that I had to memorize was the Cadet Oath, which symbolizes your ability to learn, and push forward. Let’s break the cadet oath down into pieces and define each section of it. Line by line.

We’ll fight till we die.

The Cadet Oath is as follows:

I pledge that I will serve faithfully in the Civil Air Patrol Cadet program.

This means that I as a Cadet will Serve my country faithfully, and not let my other buddy’s down.

And that I will attend meetings regularly, participate actively in unit activities.

This means that It is my responsibility as a Cadet Of CAP to show up on time, and be a follower in unit activities. It is not my job to chase the other cadets around and tell them to show up.

And Obey my officers, wear my uniform properly and advance my education and training rapidly to prepare myself to be of service to my state and nation.

This means that it is my job to Respect my officers, team leaders, and myself. I am also to wear the Uniform with pride and honor because it is the actual Air force Uniform, and that is a huge honor to even get to own your own uniforms. Last, but not least I am to grow in this program so that I am ready to join the field when I graduate.

Our Squadron is growing, and we continue to serve and protect our country no matter what comes our way. Remember- Train the way we fight, and fight the way we train.

Hats to America,

C/ A1c Hayes- Claridge
