Captain Phillips references and life

“Look at me, I’m the Captain now!” I show off to all my Civil Air Patrol friends. I send them a meme to go with it…

Of course I had to post it here, as well. Why not? It’s an accomplishment I can be proud of. It’s something to keep me going. On Wednesday, 5 October 2016, I promoted to the grade of Cadet Captain in the US Air Force Auxiliary, Civil Air Patrol. The grade of Cadet Captain, or C/Capt, comes with the Amelia Earhart Award. To pass this milestone, you have to take a written test on Aerospace and Leadership, as well as complete Staff Service and pass a PT test. Achieving this milestone places me in the top 5% of cadets statistically speaking, and my award number is 17515, making me the 17,515th cadet to obtain this award since its implementation. So, CAP has managed to give me motivation and happiness once again. I love the Civil Air Patrol so much, and it is such an amazing program for all ages. My squadron made me a poster, too. I framed it yesterday, and now it’s hanging above my bed.

I love my squadron, and I miss them all the time. They’ve gotten me through so much. Civil Air Patrol has gotten me through so much. So… yeah. I’m alright right now.

Alright guys, fly above and beyond. Stay strong.
