The 27th Delta Force Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol (CAP) recently conducted a Search and Rescue (SAR) training exercise at Fort Greely to acquire survival skills and inspection techniques.
Under the supervision of Squadron Commander 2nd Lt. Byron Smith, M. Brian McElroy, Emily Schenk, and Mr. Rocky Senatore, the CAP cadets received an inspection of their “24hr BAG” which is a requirement for the cadets to participate in a live Search and Rescue mission. In addition the senior leaders lead cadet teams on a compass course around Fort Greely. “This hands on event creates a great learning opportunity and the fact the kids have a great time is icing on the cake” said MSgt Baugh. The Cadets reported this was a great event and they had fun while learning!
