Cadet Welcome Message
Welcome to the Effingham Cadet Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol. I am pleased that you are interested in joining our exciting program. Please read all this information so that you have a clear understanding of the program you are considering.
If you decide that you want to become a part of our team, the first thing we recommend that you do is to visit and keep coming back! That way you can see what we do on a week-to-week basis and make a more informed decision about membership before you join. The last thing we want is for someone to join CAP who is not sure they want to be a member.
A parent or legal guardian MUST accompany the potential cadet during the first three meeting to verify any required information and answer any questions they may have about the Civil Air Patrol.
As you progress and challenge yourself within the Civil Air Patrol, you will learn to adapt and overcome further obstacles with teamwork, self-motivation and integrity. As you take part in this exciting process, we ask that you consider all options and your dedication level for participation with our squadron.
Semper Vigilans! (Always Vigilant)
MITCHELL GUETTERMAN, Capt, CAP
