Squadron
85! 
From the Squadron Commander  
Hope everybody had a great holiday and Happy New Year!At the first meeting of 2011 I talked about participation in squadron activities and how this relates to your progression in theCAP Cadet Program. In this article I will continue the discussion of progression and review what I spoke about at the firstmeeting. Did you know that in the Cadet Program there is a recommended minimum of two promotions per year? We getconcerned when we do not see cadets progressing through the program. Some of you were part of the great growth we ex-perienced last year. We make an effort through our Great Start program to get you through the first promotion. After that itis mainly up to you (with some encouragement from Staff) to make progress. It requires you to have the initiative to manageyour time so that you can study the materials and take the tests. Unlike Great Start, the material becomes more involved andbecause we need to focus on a great many things the regular meetings alone will not give you the knowledge to pass the test.So, what do you need to do to progress:Study your Leadership ManualStudy your Aerospace Module (check your Super Chart to make sure it is a requirement for that achievement)Pass your CPFT (we regularly schedule these to meet the requirement, stay fit, always strive for better, requirementsfor passing get harder as you get older/progress)Attend a Character Development Meeting (we also regularly schedule these to meet the requirement)Participation (remember, just coming to the regular meetings is not Volunteer/Community Services, you must attenda squadron activity).Pass your PRBFor Great Start (C/AB)Must have your BDU
s uniform in orderFor C/A1CMust have your Blue
s uniform in orderWhat is the benefit to this all? RECOGNITION!Your peers, community and military services all recognize achievements. You will also gain in leadership experience be-cause with each achievement our expectations of what you do for the squadron increase as well. As you gain in your leader-ship experience you may someday become our next Cadet Commander. Imagine that!Let
s make a New Y
ear’
s Resolution and continue to grown in CAP.Rick Kaita, Capt.,

Be Apart of the Prestigious Color Guard 
One of the fun opportunities that we have in Civil Air Patrol is to be a part of a colorguard. We provide a service to the community at many local events each year by"presenting the colors." You get to carry the flag or bear a (non-functioning) rifle and geta chance to show off your skill at drill.We're currently training a lot more members in preparation for the Group 5 cadet compe-tition on February 19th at the Mather Field Armory. Our squadron plans to enter at leasttwo teams and maybe even three in the color guard portion of the competition and thatmeans we have lots of positions available including team command positions.If you're interested, please talk to your flight staff and plan to attend the next practice onJanuary 29th from 1-6 at the armory and plan to come compete on February 19th!Read here for more information:http://gp5.cawg.cap.gov/node/139  Ronald Thompson, Capt., CAPDeputy Commander,
