Congratulations to Capt Langford on his promotion.
As many of you know he is very active in ES. He established “Friday Night Lights” where he helps cadets become qualified in Emergency Services (ES). Capt Langford has worked Cove Point Radio and the St Mary’s mission base on numerous occasions including
SAREXs and Bay Patrol. He has established liaisons with several outside agencies. He has planned and executed joint operations with local fire and rescue units as well as other county agencies. His activity with the US Naval Test Pilot School flight line has made him indispensable as an experienced flight line marshaller (FLM) and supervisor (FLS).
Congratulations Capt Langford!
Congratulations to Capt Robert Lewis who was recently accepted into a PhD program at Utah State. He is a former C/Col, Spaatz recipient, and cadet commander in the Squadron.

The cadets who applied for this year’s National Cadet Special Activities traveled to the new Maryland Wing HQ in Granite Maryland for the annual NCSA review boards. The members on the review board, Maj Carmello, Lt Col Carmello, and Lt Col Buck, asked each cadet about their top choices, roles in CAP, and other basic interview questions. The board will then decide who will be accepted to the over 40 NCSA’s being held this summer.
So what is an NCSA?
NCSA’s are weeklong summer activities that cadets can go to after attending an encampment. Cadets can solo in gliders or powered aircraft at a flight academy, learn about the Air Force’s role in space and cyber at Air Force Space Command Familiarization Course, provide logistics at the Oshkosh Air Show, or study engineering at the Civil Engineering Academy. Here’s what some of your fellow cadets have to say about their NCSA experiences.
The signup for Airman Leadership School is live. ALS will be held March 13-15 at the American Legion Youth Camp in Cheltenham, MD. ALS is a great way to get a taste for the summer’s Tri-Wing Encampment and to meet cadets from across Group III during this team-building weekend. If you have not attended Encampment, I highly encourage you to attend.
