GAWG 2010 HONOR ENCAMPMENT
30 June & 1 July 2010
Cadet Commander C/Col Brian C. Mauldin Cadet Deputy Commander C/Maj Casey Alvord
With Chaplain Whitworth Congratulations Cadets and Senior Members! We have made it over the half-way line, and we are quickly approaching the final goal. 2010 GAWG Honor Encampment graduation is within reach, and believe it or not, there is light at the end of the tunnel (regardless of the grumpies say.) We have been taught how to safely hurdle logs, shoot rifles, jump off Rappelling Towers, marched, drilled, ate, slept, had a few challenges, made new friends, laughed, and had a lot of fun.

Let us now muster up that last spurt of energy and courageously face the last leg of this journey as we cheer each other on. The light is at the end of the tunnel, and we will soon be going back to our comfort zones at home. Cadets and Senior Members, I am so proud of your hard work and endurance and count it a privilege to have had this quality time with you. My heart and mind is filled with many good thoughts and memories that will be with me for the rest of my life. Hold your heads up high knowing that you have run well the race that was set before you.

GEORGIA WING 2010 SUMMER ENCAMPMENT
C/COLONEL BRIAN MAULDIN
When C/Col Mauldin, the Encampment Cadet Commander, was asked to be interviewed by the Public Affairs Staff, he was extremely modest about his achievements. C/Col Mauldin is part of a very select group which has reached the ultimate achievement in the Cadet Program. C/Col Mauldin is a Spaatz Cadet, an honor achieved by less than 1% of all CAP Cadets. C/Col Mauldin said that he has always been eager to learn. He has always enjoyed PT and taking tests. Every step for him was an opportunity to learn something new. He said that there is never a reason to be bored because you always have a lot to do when you are responsible. There are many opportunities to expand your training through Wing and National Activities. C/Col Mauldin said that he didn’t start to think seriously about becoming a Spaatz Cadet until he became a C/Captain. He encouraged everyone in the group to do their best. He said that the way to become a Spaatz Cadet is by remaining eager to achieve your goal. He said “You must be self motivated and dedicated.”

RULES OF THE GUIDON The Guidon is the symbol of each Flight and should be carried with pride. It should be treated as though it is a member of the Flight itself. No one touches the Guidon but the Guidon Bearer and the Flight Staff (unless training on the Guidon). In this Honor Encampment, there will be no “Guidon Wars” or stealing of another Flight’s or Squadron’s Guidon. HONOR CODE We will not lie, steal, or cheat, nor tolerate among us anyone who does. CAP CORE VALUES INTEGRITY VOLUNTEER SPIRIT EXCELLENCE RESPECT CADET OATH I pledge that I will serve faithfully In the Civil Air Patrol Program, And that I will attend meetings regularly, Participate actively in Unit activities, Obey my Officers, Wear my uniform properly, And advance my education and training rapidly To prepare myself To be of service to My community, state, and nation.
During the week, Encampment Cadets have had the opportunity to solidify the bond with one another and their Flight at the Confidence Course. The Confidence Course was designed to build an individual’s confidence as well as to solidify the bond within the group. At the Course, Cadets helped one another to overcome a multitude of obstacles. Even though some Cadets did not appear confident at first, the motivation gained from other members of their Flight helped so much that those Cadets requested to go through the Course again. The Confidence Course was definitely one of the highlights of the week. A fun time was had by all!!!

My Poor Sore Dogs
Safety is the only way, To make it through this week. Encampment time is finally here, With knowledge that we seek. We learn, we march, and constant drills, The blisters which we fret. Reminders of our battle boots, Make sure we don’t forget. Moleskin is a true blue friend, That gives us “happy feet”, The cotton and peroxide’s, The healing which we seek. Keep feet firmly planted, Don’t think inside a fog. Have some fun, go laugh and play, But take care of your dogs.

FOOD IS FUEL. YOU MUST EAT NUTRITIOUS FOOD, NOT JUNK FOOD WHICH DOES NOT GIVE YOU THE PROPER ENERGY NEEDED FOR ENCAMPMENT ACTIVITIES.
