Welcome to Civil Air Patrol!

Thank you for your interest in Upper Montgomery Composite Squadron, it is a privilege to have you here. My name is C/2dLt Katherine Weinhold and it is my honor to be the cadet commander of this squadron. As the cadet commander, I lead the cadets and oversee the general cadet program. I look forward to having you join the ranks of our fine cadets!


Being a cadet in CAP has been one of the greatest decisions of my life. The program offers an enormous amount of opportunities that you simply cannot find anywhere else. Our three missions: aerospace education, emergency services and cadet programs offer a wide variety of experiences to choose from. If you belong in the sky, aerospace education can get you there through orientation flights, rocketry, and solo school. Solo school is a cadet special activity that can help you in getting your private pilots license. If

you prefer to stay on the ground, emergency services can teach you how to aide in disaster relief, find missing persons and learn how to survive in adverse conditions. Our final mission, cadet programs, is the overarching mission for the rest of the opportunities for cadets in civil air patrol. Some examples of cadet programs are encampments, national cadet special activities, speak off and so much more. This mission focuses on training the future leaders of America and developing the countries youth to be the best they can be.

If you apply yourself to this great program, you will gain a wealth of knowledge. You will learn how to follow and work with people you have never met before. These people will teach you the value of comradery, teamwork, and respect. On your way to becoming a leader you will better yourself as a person by learning how to boost your confidence, have better communication skills, and become more focused and organized. Finally, Civil Air Patrol is a great place to meet people who you will form deep connections and unforgettable memories with.

I have loved being a part of this squadron and I know that you will to. Again, thank you for your interest in our squadron. Once you join, you will have specific people to help you with any questions you may have. Until then, feel free to contact us. I hope to see you at our squadron meetings soon!
