From the wing commander
Welcome to Indiana Wing’s summer en-campment! I am pleased you’re here with
us at Camp Atterbury Joint Maneuver Training Center (CAJMTC). As you start
the week’s activities, remember that we
are guests of the Indiana National Guard. Customs and courtesies are expected and required, especially when interacting with CAJMTC staff and personnel. The upcoming activities are designed to teach you leadership and teamwork skills. Accomplishments you achieve this week will take you far during your career as a CAP cadet and beyond. Matthew R. Creed, Col., CAP Commander, INWG

The heat is the biggest safety obstacle we face this week. Flight commanders and sergeants will be enforcing mandatory hydration. Cadets will comply.

First day, First impression
First time at Encampment? Don’t
worry! No one knows everything the first day of any new adven-ture. Keep the following in mind: everyone makes mistakes. Learn
from them and keep going. Don’t
be afraid to ask questions of your flight commander. Cadet executive staff is here to answer
questions and teach you what’s
what. Be patient and stay posi-tive
 all this makes for a great week!

Today cadets took part in Emergency Services curriculum taught by C/CMSgt Nick Danto; C/2nd Lt Nathaniel Raab; C/1st Lt David Fairbairn; and C/1st LtTyler Crowl. Cadets learned rudimentary search and rescue skills including search line techniques to enhance searches for missing persons. Cadets also learned basic radio communi-cations skills in order to smoothly facilitate emergency services functions.

CUSTOMS & courtesies
Remember these tips when traveling around “post” at
Camp Atterbury, or at any Civil Air Patrol event.
Salute cadet officers and senior members while
out-side
only.
All cadet officers and senior members should be ad-
dressed as “ma’am” or “sir.” Other cadets should be addressed by rank such as “Airman,” “Sergeant” and “Chief.”
When you hear the phrase, “HIT THE WALL,” you are
to move close to the wall and make room for passing cadet or senior member.
No covers indoors or on the flight line.
When in doubt check with your Flight Commander.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY

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.

From the cadet Commander
Cadets have been enjoying a taste of military life on the campus of Camp Atterbury Joint Ma-neuver Training Center. While mem-bers of the Civil Air Patrol perform non combat missions for the United States Air Force, being "on post" at an active installa-tion is an educational and impressionable experience. We learn more each day about the capabilities of our nation's mili-tary and intergovernmental operations within the State of Indiana and beyond. As the days' schedules progress, our Public Affairs Staff compiles news of encamp-ment activities. We update our social me-dia outlets throughout the day and deliver the newsletter to cadets before bedtime. Shortly thereafter we'll send it to parents and friends, too! As you read our stories from encampment this year keep in touch with your cadet by sending messages via our Facebook page. You may also send us Tweets or messages at this email inencampment@gmail.com. We welcome your messages of support during this exciting week away from home. As always, we welcome your feedback and input.

Safety
1st Lt. Elizabeth Harris, Safety Officer
Safety is of critical importance throughout the week at en-campment. Foot care is a con-cern because cadets are on their feet most of the day. To make sure we take special care of feet, there are nightly foot checks for blisters and hot spots to prevent injuries.
Third day, Three ways to excel
Tips from the Cadet Standards and Evaluation Team SET):
Strive for your best
The only way to achieve the highest standard for duties like barracks inspection and kitch-
en patrol (“KP”) is teamwork.
 
Use each individual’s strengths to better the team’s efforts.

Who we are...what we do
As Civil Air Patrol members, we are required to meet a high standard of excellence set forth by the United States Air Force. Our core values reflect the principles to which we adhere:
Integrity, Excellence, Respect, and Volunteer Service
 
In CAP activities, cadets develop leadership ability and learn about emerging technology. As team members we share quality time doing work that matters, giving back to our communities.
 
Cadets have no obligation to join the military but many cadets who do choose that path have an advantage by being CAP members. Those who achieve the grade of C/2nd Lt also gain the ability to enter the U.S. Army, Air Force, and Coast Guard at a higher pay grade.
Your time in CAP serves as a springboard for your career as a young adult. Draw on your leadership skills learned this week and you will go far!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY
15 July 2013 Bravo Flight C/SrA Kogin 16 July 2013 RCLS C/2nd Lt Michael Spaulding
READY TO lead
Cadets in the ATS (Advanced Training Squadron) and Re-gion Cadet Leadership School completed Camp Atter-bury
's Leadership Reaction Course (LRC). The LRC is a fun and challenging exercise that gives cadets the skills need-ed to overcome obstacles, both physical and mental. These challenges build teamwork skills and test leadership abili-
ties that strengthen cadets’ individual leadership character-
istics. Each obstacle within the course gives cadets the op-portunity to achieve their personal best, raising the bar for themselves and their team.
Obstacle course? obstacle achieved!
The Obstacle Course is one of the favor-ite activities for cadets at encampment each year. For physical training, building teamwork and evaluating problem solving skills, the Obstacle Course is a fun, yet effective teaching tool. Cadets overcome personal doubts to achieve their best, one challenge at a time.
