In a formal ceremony on 13 November, Lt Col Thomas O'Connell, Jr, the CO of 4th Airlift, came to the McChord Sq. CAP meeting. He was there to formally adopt us as a sister unit. Capt Katherine Gabb, CO of McChord Squadron gave the Lt Col a certificate of appreciation and a Commander's Coin. Lt Col O'Connell gave us a brief talk about the 4th Airlift's duties and experiences, which vary from flying around Presidential limos to being shot at in the theater or landing planes on an ice sheet in Antarctica. He then assisted Capt Gabb with pinning cadet promotions, and gave each promoted cadet a Commander's Coin and words of individual encouragement.
