Our cadets have learned the sweet sound of Taps as their lights out notice; many of the cadets now recognize it’s the sound of relief…. and the opportunity to get sleep after a long day filled with learning.
The good morning sound of Reveille has proven to motivate the cadets out of bed, fully dressed and ready for morning PT in laminates. We are sharing this because we want you to know if your cadet has overslept in the morning, it is possible for them to move quickly and catch the bus!
The weekend was filled with inspections, our cadets have been proudly wearing their BDU uniforms, this morning the Dress Blues uniform was introduced, C/2nd Lt Heath and C/Capt. Jones walked the cadets through the proper placement of rank insignia, and the measurements for all the seams necessary to be in regulation.
Today also marks the Graduation of EPS 1, we are so proud of all the cadets, this year we are happy to announce we have 100% of the cadets passing the standards set by CAP and their peers.
Throughout the weekend the cadets have been evaluated by their Staff members. All of the cadets have learned and improved their skills so much, this weekend was very difficult to select just one winner, and after much discussion this is the list of the finalists.
Please join us in congratulating these fine Cadets for their hard work, they have truly set the standard of excellence.

During Drill Down training we were also watching for the Cadet that showed the most amount of precision, followship, obedience, and attention to detail. Throughout the weekend this Cadet was outstanding with direction and also attitude.
We are proud to announce the winner of The Drill Down Champion is from the Northland Composite Squadron:
- C/SSgt Bryan Porter
Our first EPS weekend was a tremendous opportunity for our staff and cadets to prep for Encampment, we are excited with the group of new leaders the CAP is helping to develop.
Over the weekend we paid close attention to the one cadet that embraced the training weekend, the obstacles, the tasks placed in front of them and the tremendous opportunity to excel. One particular cadet was a shining light and we are proud to announce the Over All Honor Cadet is from Anoka County Composite Squadron:
- C/A1C Shania Sabanjo
As parents to these outstanding Cadets, you should all be extremely proud of your children. All the cadets worked extremely hard this weekend. If you happen to notice the need for an afternoon nap, please grant their wish, they were simply outstanding this weekend, thank you for trusting your cadets with the Civil Air Patrol and their staff members.
