75th Cadet Year
Posted on March 3, 2017 at 12:00 AM by Joanna Lee
In 2016 we celebrated the 75th anniversary of the Civil Air Patrol, founded 1 December, 1941. Months later, the Cadet Program was created, 1 December, 1942. Throughout 2017 we are celebrating 75 years of young people serving their communities, states and nation. We are proud to kickoff the festivities this weekend with the release of the Civil Air Patrol 75th Cadet Year Anniversary Planning Guide. The Guide explains the goals of the anniversary celebration, identifies celebration activities to be led at the national level, and encourages wings and squadrons to participate in the celebration through local activities.
Please take a look so you can see some of the upcoming plans for national level programs and get ideas for local activities. We’ll be adding more resources to 75th Cadet Year in the coming days and months. We are proud of the incredible heritage of the Cadet Program and continue to be inspired by the outstanding young people becoming dynamic Americans and aerospace leaders through the Civil Air Patrol.
