Numerous promotions, awards, appointments and recognitions were made at Millington Composite Squadron's most recent Open House and Awards Ceremony held this month.
There was a change of command ceremony for the Cadet Commander position, welcoming new C/CC 1st Lt Lucas Shelton, who will be the senior cadet leader of the MCS cadet corps.
Two of our senior members were presented the rank of Technical Flight Officer, one by appointment and another by promotion and were both recognized for 5 years of service to Civil Air Patrol. Congratulations to TFO Stevens and TFO Burgess!
Another senior member was appointed as a Lt Col (CAP) due to his prior military service at the same grade (USMC Retired). Congratulations, Colonel Sander!
Several cadets received promotions within the cadet enlisted ranks as well as individual certificates marking first flights, Aerospace Education Excellence awards, and model rocketry participation. Outgoing C/CC 1st Lt Christian Littlejohn was presented with a certificate of appreciation for his service as Cadet Commander this past year.
The event featured a video presentation about Civil Air Patrol's 75th anniversary, a slideshow and a reception. This was the second time for the squadron to hold this event at the Baker Community Center in Millington. Thank you to the City of Millington and Baker Community Center for allowing us the use of a great facility!
