March Milestones

This month the Millington Composite Squadron was visited by Hugh Lamar, a representative of the Everett Cook Chapter of the Air Force Association.  He presented one of our cadets, C/CMSgt Sean Srock with the Cadet of the Year Award from the AFA.  He also presented the certificate for the MCS CyberPatriot team, which scored first place in Tennessee within the All Service Division Gold Tier.

Orientation flights were scheduled but had to be postponed due to weather, and two cadets presented their Armstrong Speech (Srock and Boothe).  We also saw C/Capt Blake Burgess attain his rank and receive the Amelia Earhart Award.

As part of our aerospace education program the cadets continued their model rocketry program, completing the first stage.  These hands-on projects included building two very simple rocket designs (made of paper or styrofoam) to introduce basic concepts such as thrust.
