Local Civil Air Patrol squadrons admitting new cadets to program

Youth who want to learn more about Air Force life, experience flying, and develop leadership skills have the opportunity over the next three weeks to become a Civil Air Patrol cadet with the La Crosse Composite Squadron.

Youth and their parents are welcome to attend an information night on either Monday, August 5 or Monday, August 12 from 7:30-8:30 p.m. New cadets will be accepted until Monday, August 26. After that date interested youth will need to wait until the next membership opportunity held in early December.

The squadron, one of the largest in the state of Wisconsin, admits new cadets to its program four times a year.

The La Crosse Composite Squadron meets Monday nights at 6:30 p.m. at the CAP Center located at 2906 Fanta Fee Rd. on the east side of the La Crosse Municipal Airport. Prospective cadets, ages 12-18, and their parents are always welcome.
