Group III SAREX July 22, 2017

Group III SAREX at the squadron this Friday and Saturday. Cadets from Griffin and Albany working together to solve problems and become better leaders. These cadets are awesome! I’m very proud of all they are doing from land navigation and securing crash sites to fire starting and setting up hasty shelter (which they are sleeping in right now)! Good night cadets! Sleep well. You deserve the rest! Big day tomorrow too!

Today’s ground team search and rescue exercise. Evacuating simulated casualties, a line search, simulated aircraft crash site (aerial photo shot — very cool!), and a CAP ground team to the rescue! Great work cadets from both Griffin and Albany!
