Local Civil Air Patrol squadron admitting new cadets to program
Youth who want to learn about Air Force life, experience flying, and develop leadership skills have the opportunity over the next three weeks to become a Civil Air Patrol cadet with the La Crosse Composite Squadron. The squadron, one of the largest in Wisconsin, admits new cadets to its program four times a year.
Youth and their parents who want more information are welcome to attend an information night on either Monday, August 5 or Monday, August 12 from 7:30-8:30pm. New cadets will be accepted until Monday, August 26. After that date interested youth will need to wait until the next membership opportunity which will be held in early December.
