On a snowy day, several cadets and a few senior members spend a few hours splitting and stacking wood for a 4-H firing range building in central Montana. ๐Ÿ“ท: Tiffany Johnson โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข #montana #wintertime #snow #communityservice #leadership #centralmontana #montanawing #civilairpatrol #capcadets #cap #airforcetotalforce #usafauxiliary #gocivilairpatrol #teambuilding #workingtogether #malmstromcap #malmstromcompositesquadron #warheadsonforeheads @flybutterfly.photography @civil__air__patrol
Fun fact: my grandmother was not only a badass Army field medic overseas during WWII, but later became a #civilairpatrol pilot and also had time in an #F104 . Another fun fact: her CAP flight suit fits me as if it were my own. ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’• #womenInAviation #USAFauxiliary #aviationFamily #femalePilots #imNotThatCoolYetTho #militaryAppreciation #๐Ÿ›ฉ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

This year I'm going to start keeping track of these and sharing them here. First LT's Motivation of the Week for 2019! . #leadership #education #learning #civilairpatrolcadet #civilairpatrol #training #futureleaders #usafauxiliary #usaf #usmcveteran #lessonlearned
First drill of the new year means a formal inspection of short sleeve service blues! From head to toe, everything must be impeccable. As an Officer I am expected to set the example for those below me. Here's to starting my 19th year of combined Cadet, Enlisted and Officer service off right! . #happynewyear #handsome #officerandgentleman #officer #usaf #usafauxiliary #usmcveteran #priorservice #looksharpactsharpbesharp #leadership #civilairpatrol #professionalism #prideiscontagious
Repost from my personal account: . Happy New Year! 2018 was a year of ups and downs, great blessings and huge losses. Above all, it was a year of immense personal growth. I went through some of the darkest days I've faced in recent years and I came out better for all of it. I learned more about who I am and who I do and do not want to be. I had some very special people come into my life, you know who you are. Thank you for being such wonderful individuals! . 2019 will continue this growth and also be a return to things that I love and enjoy. In that vein and inspired by my new friend @officerandgentleman , one of my resolutions is to get back to dressing more classically sharp and doing my best to bring a bit of classic gentlemen's lifestyle back to my little corner of the world. Best wishes from me to you all in this new solar circumnavigation! . Oh and for my gun family, yes I am still armed under the suit! . #officer #gentleman #suit #officerandgentleman #classic #brogues #breitling #armed #armedinfaith #growth #happynewyear #2019 #faith #usmcveteran #necktie #suitandtie #menswear #mensstyle #usaf #usafauxiliary #leadership #civilairpatrol
Wishing our Maryland Wing family and friends a very happy and safe new year. Let's make 2019 the best year ever! #mdwgcap #gocivilairpatrol #usafauxiliary #totalforce #volunteerairman
Sometimes you need to take a day to unwind, clear your head and just enjoy a hobby! Took a drive up Coastal Rt 1 to visit some old coastal defense forts. Got some nice pictures, but there was not a single sneaky #oozlefinch to be found! Great views and amazing history though! . #dayoff #roadtrip #fortdearborn #fortmcclary #nh #maine #coast #artillery #coastartillery #history #officer #tbl #usafauxiliary #usmcveteran #civilairpatrol #adventure

Last night Beverly Squadron was visited by an Air Force ROTC Gold Bar Recruiter who gave a great presentation to the #cadets on opportunities with AFROTC. 2dLt Will Chirinos, USAF, of AFROTC Det 355, the @flyingtigers_355 at Boston University gave a phenomenal presentation about the program and talked extensively about his own experience with AFROTC and the path to becoming an Air Force Officer. Thanks for coming out, Lt! . #civilairpatrol #beverlysquadron #usafauxiliary #afrotc #leadership #officer #civilairpatrolcadet #opportunities #education #training #futureleaders

Today we celebrate the Civil Air Patrol USAF Auxiliary Birthday! The CAP was formed back in December 1, 1941 after the signing of the Administrative Order 9. They are the official civilian auxiliary of the USAF and a congressional chartered, federally supported non-profit corporation. #CAP #CivilAirPatrol #USAFAuxiliary #Dec1 #CAPBirthday
Felt good to put my #CivilAirPatrol "hat" on again and be back at a @cap_squadron150 meeting again tonight. My travel schedule has ramped lately and I've missed some meetings, so it was nice to be back! . . . #gocivilairpatrol #civilairpatrol #volunteerlife #socal #orangecounty #usafauxiliary #totalforce #avgeek #avgeeks #avgeekery #flying #volunteer #CAP #observer #goflyCAP #cawg #motivationalspeakerlife #entrepreneur #volunteerservice
Ole Lt Christiansen is a freaking nerd on the inside! Huge ASOIAF/Game of Thrones fan. If you pay attention there are so many leadership lessons, historical allegories, and more in the series! . My boy Kyle @ooglegod hooked me up with some sweet ink I've wanted for awhile. Check him out! . For the less nerdy and uninitiated, Valar Morghulis means "All men must die" and Valar Dohaeris means "All men must serve". It's from A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones. Valar Morghulis is on my right, shooting arm and Valar Dohaeris on my left, next to the Eagle, Globe and Anchor and closer to the heart. . #tattoo #ink #valarmorghulis #valardohaeris #nerdy #gameofthrones #asongoficeandfire #facelessmen #braavos #westeros #housestark #winteriscoming #officer #tbl #USMC #usafauxiliary #allmenmustdie #allmenmustserve #leadership

We were honored to spend Veterans Day with WW2 veteran Lt. Col. Sam Sachs USA (Ret.). Lt. Col. Sachs flew in a glider into Normandy during D-Day so we naturally wanted him to see one of our #CivilAirPatrol gliders during his visit! In this photo. Lt. Col. Sachs posed for a picture in front of a CAP glider with Maj. Craig Newton (L), Maj. David Powell (2nd from left) and Maj. John Chapman (R).

Team Washington Wing: Over the weekend I was honored to be asked to speak at the dedication ceremony for the new Washington All Mission Academy (WAMA) at Camp Boucher. If you have not been there recently I encourage you to attend a training activity there in the future. The facility has been re-born and looks fantastic. I could feel the energy the minute I walked through the door. A lot of volunteer members and family members have worked very hard to refurbish, paint, rebuild and restore the facility to an outstanding training center that Washington Wing can feel very proud of. We've had visitors from Pacific Region and CAP-USAF already and the reports that I received back from them were very positive. The trip to the facility was provided by Lt John Ritchie, a pilot from ORWG. A big thanks to our neighbors to the south for truly grasping the One Civil Air Patrol concept. Thanks also to the pilots from WAWG who also offered to make the flight. I decided to partner with ORWG because at their recent wing conference they let us know they want to create some joint training opportunities with us and I thought this would be a great opportunity to show one of them our training facility at Camp Boucher. He was really impressed and was taking this back to his wing. Attached is a group photo after the ceremony and you can see a little bit of both ORWG and WAWG aircraft in the picture. Enjoy.... Thanks again to all those involved in making the dedication ceremony a huge success! Col Shelly J. Norman, CAP, WAWG Commander. .. .. #civilairpatrol #capusaf #usafauxiliary #usafaux #campboucher #wama #wawg #capmembers #cap #civil_air_patrol #cessna #c182 #skylane #civilairpatrol #orwg #volunteer #volunteering

One of the best decisions I have made in recent years was to choose to become a #volunteer of the Civil Air Patrol, the civilian Auxiliary of the US Air Force. Being able to serve my community and nation as a volunteer professional willing and able to assist in times of need, connecting with other like-minded people and having fun in the process has benefited my life in many ways. I strongly encourage everyone to volunteer in something you believe in and enjoy! It's good for the cause and it's good for you too! I recently attended the CAP National Conference in Anaheim where I gained even more appreciation for the organization, the people and where I was able to take this nifty official portrait too! . . . #civilairpatrol #volunteering #CAPNC18 #CAP #CAWG #gocivilairpatrol #avgeek #avgeeks #avgeekery #flying #volunteer #volunteering #volunteerlife #socal #orangecounty #usafauxiliary #motivationalspeaker #entrepreneurlifestyle #theawesomechallenge
