I call him totally amazing.  After spending an evening with him, I feel I learned so much and yet know so little.  I truly need to tell all of you about a program that seem to be the best kept secret around.

I am talking about the Civil Air Patrol’s Cadet Program, herinafter referred to as CAP.  Young people. girls and boys, can join the program at the age of 12, and can remain in the Cadet program until the age of 18.  Through their experiences, these kids develop into responsibile citizens and become tomorrow’s aerospace leaders.
