Message From the Commander

Another year is upon us and we are quickly racing towards the start of the Iowa Wing encampment.

Every year, the Iowa Wing Encampments I have had the honor to be involved in have provided a great learning and growing opportunity. We have already lined up some outstanding events and activities, as well as guest speakers and trainers. I have no doubt we will continue to improve to overall experience for the cadet basics and staff. I want to thank you again for the fantastic work you put into getting qualified to attend this encampment. Your hard work and preparation will pay great dividends, and I welcome and celebrate the opportunity to work and train with you.

Our success will be proven when we accomplish two major things: we prove we can provide a ready and trained force capable of succeeding in the CAP Cadet program while maintaining a positive and fun training environment, and we move towards Total Force Integration. When complete I am sure that I will be proud of your teamwork and mission accomplishment.

Please take this as your invitation to join us! I look forward to having you show not only your flight, squadron, and wing but the entire state and nation what you are capable of. I look forward to seeing you there!

Iowa Wing Encampment Commander
