READY TO FLY
Learning from history is important. Maj Merrill reviewed history of rocketry to present day and took the cadets through the step by step building of a rocket. The rockets will be launched later in the week. Additionally, Indiana Wing Commander, Col. Matt Creed spoke to cadets about his experiences as a commercial airline pilot.
WRITE A LETTER
Did you know that there is a proper way to address an invitation to a General? Did you know that there is a prop-er color of ink? Did you know all USAF Memoranda must follow certain procedures? The cadets attending Region Cadet Leadership School (RCLS) took a course where they learned public speaking and how to construct formal USAF correspondence. The class was taught by Lt Col Lindsay Shipps, former INWG Public Affairs Officer and current National Legislative Officer.
Learning to Lead
The ATS (Advanced Training Squadron) went above and beyond today. Leading proper drill instruction, boot shining, BDUs and blues inspection, in addition to learning how to conduct barracks in-spections are key fundamentals working on forming the next set of encampment leaders.
