Squadron 85 ,
 
 As most of you may have noticed, both the Cadet Commander Anthony Smith andmyself have not been in attendance. This is because of an accident that occurred. Iwill explain the basics of what happened.For those of you who know the Folsom area, you may be familiar with a popular  jumping spot called China Wall. For those of you who aren't, China Wall is a 60 footcliff that you can jump off of and into the water below. However you can't just jump,you have to get a running start in order to clear the almost straight up and down cliff.Recently Anthony and I decided to go there and hang out, do some jumping etc. After a few successful jumps, Anthony decided to climb the tree that is nearby and jumpfrom there. Although the tree extends out over the cliff, there is still a couple of feet of the cliff to clear. When Anthony jumped, he jumped about a foot short and at the bot-tom hit his feet. He hit his feet, and only his feet, then went into the water. He calledout for help so I ran down the embankment, moved him to safety and waited for theparamedics. Forty minutes later they arrived by boat, stabilized him and he was thentransported to the hospital. After waiting several hours for him to get out of the Oper-ating Room where he had an external metal splint hooked up to his feet and ankles,we (his mom, brother, my mom and I) were informed that both of his heels and bothankles were broken.They also told us that they did a full body X-Ray and his spine and everything else looked fine, which is exceptionally rare inthis type of accident.Currently he is mentally okay, it's just his feet that aren't working so well.I bring this to your attention for a few reasons. First and most importantly we must support Anthony through the tough monthsahead. Second we still have the squadron to run, so we need continue with promotions and participating
in activities. I’
vebeen speaking with Anthony and he wants to make sure all of us get the most out of the Cadet Program. Lastly I want this tobe the biggest lesson that we can learn from, and for it to impact as many people as possible. Think of the possible conse-quences of your actions for everything, not only when doing
dangerou
s stunts” but in a
ll aspects of your life. If you have ever said to yourself 
“oh noth
ing bad is going to happe
n” you’
re wrong. Always think through the things that
could 
happen and actaccordingly for your safety and the safety of others.

SPECIAL CONGRATULATIONS FOR ACHIEVING A MAJOR MILESTONE IN THE CADET PROGRAM 
Cadet: Anthony Smith Billy Mitchell
Award
 
C/2Lt.
 
#60063
 
Gen Billy Mitchell advocated for an independent air force. Moreover, he real-ized that the general public must understand why aviation is important toAmerica. He demonstrated that aircraft could be significant in war fighting bysinking several captured and overage battleships from the air in 1921 and1923. 
Amelia Earhart
Award
 
C/Capt.
 
#15250
 Cadet: Mary Barb 
Perhaps no name is as symbolic of aerospace achievement as Amelia Earhart.In 1928, she became the first woman to cross the Atlantic by air. She disap-peared in 1937 near Howland Island in the Pacific Ocean while trying to cir-cumnavigate the world in a twin engine Lockheed Electra. Her disappearanceis one of the greatest unsolved mysteries of the 20th century.

From the Squadron Deputy Commander  
Greetings Squadron 85!
 
The first half of 2011 has been a very event filled time for the squadron! We've had a lot of success and we have some greatplans for the months to come matched by some very important goals.Six cadets from our squadron won at the lower levels of competition and competed at the Na-tional Cadet Competition. They had someoutstanding success with a 1st Place victory inStandard Drill, 2nd Place in Inspection and a3rd Place overall finish! NCC is the highestlevel of cadet competition with outstandingperformances by all of the teams. Any cadetfrom our squadron can strive to be a part of future teams, but the requirements to performwell at that level require commitment and dedi-cation. Twelve of the Fourteen cadets compet-ing on our team were cadet officers. Excellentwork to the team and we hope all of our cadetswant to join us on future teams.

We had a "first-in-a-long-time" achievement for C/2Lt Anthony Smith-Garcia. It has been sev-eral years since any member of the squadronhas received a "First Find" award and rib-bon. Our Cadet Commander answered thecall and went out on a mission a few weeksago finding an emergency beacon in an experi-mental aircraft on a small air strip north of Sac-ramento. The emergency services mission isone of the most important parts of Civil Air Patrol and we have been offering a lot of train-ing lately to our cadets to prepare them to as-sist in this mission. C/2Lt Smith-Garcia's success is one example of success in this area. Any emergency beacon must beresponded to, even if it is not an emergency, because additional beacons would be extremely hard to locate with one alreadyactive.Supporting the emergency services mission, and providing an exciting opportunity to our cadets, we will be having a "bivouac,"or CAP camping trip, the weekend of August 6th and 7th. We realize that many cadets will be starting school on August 8th, sowe will be starting on Saturday morning and ending in the afternoon on Sunday. We are finalizing the details and location, butwe have picked an extremely safe location and the cadets have been receiving training from one of our new senior members, aformer cadet, 1Lt Randall Sherman. I'd like to extend a huge thank you to 1Lt Sherman for his efforts in putting this together,and we look forward to a great bivouac.We have several goals for the squadron around the areas of emergency services, cadet progression in the program, and re-cruiting. We are currently falling short of our cadet progression goals. We want to see each cadet succeed in their own promo-tion goals and measure up to the CAP guideline of no fewer than two promotions each year. I would encourage all of the ca-dets to strive to be members of the cadet staff and to become cadet officers. Our squadron will continue to provide the supportto help all cadets in meeting their promotion goals, and please talk to your flight staff if you have any questions or if there isanything that we can do to better support your progress. By joining the ranks of the Sergeants and Cadet Officers in thesquadron, you will be able to start to "give back" to the new cadets. You will be able mentor them in their progress, provideleadership and direction to the squadron, and help lead us to future goals.I'd also like to extend a congratulations to all of our cadets who have been awarded milestone achievements so far this year,and to those cadets who have completed their first basic encampment. We had eight cadets attend encampment and we havehad our first two Earhart recipients for several years. Congratulations!2011 has been a great year so far for the squadron and we look forward to finishing the year with strength, progress andready to continue to grow our cadet ranks. As school starts in August, look to your new classmates and potential new cadetsin Civil Air Patrol and let's set a goal to award each cadet in the squadron a recruiting ribbon for two recruits by the end of thenext school year.
Ronald Thompson, Capt., CAPSquadron Deputy Commander
