Greetings Recruiting and Retention Officers and commanders! My name is Lt Col Darin Ninness, and I’m the new National Recruiting & Retention Manager.

I’m a long time member, having joined as a cadet in 1981 and completed Phase IV of the Cadet Program before leaving for the Army in 1986.
I have served in a variety of roles at the squadron, group and wing levels over the years, including Wing Director of Cadet Programs and Encampment Commander.  I’ve also been a semi-successful and successful squadron commander 5 times since becoming a senior member in 1988, including the last two tours which netted my unit 4 Squadron of Merit awards and one Region Squadron of Distinction. I’m presently assigned to the Concord Composite Squadron in Concord, NH and I’m also the Recruiting and Retention Officer for New Hampshire Wing.
I’m looking forward to supporting the field and assisting the wings, groups and squadrons across the country (and around the world) in recruiting new members and retaining the ones you have.
Lt Col Darin Ninness, CAP
National Recruiting & Retention Manager
