REVIEWED BY MAJOR TOM MARTIN, COMMANDER TABLE ROCK LAKE
COMPOSITE SQUADRON 147
The Table Rock Lake Composite Squadron has really been moving forward after our
move to the Branson Airport (BBG) back in October from Branson West Airport. This
move also led to our involvement in the ACE Camps with Hollister Public School
System.
The additional exposure gained with these two events has helped in getting out the best
kept secret about CAP and about all the opportunities available for cadets and seniors.
Our involvement with the Branson Airport and their willingness and assistance in
allowing the installation of additional antennas for CAP at the airport and the use of their
facilities has opened many opportunities that we have not had in the past.
The future of MO-147 looks very bright. We continue to grow and are getting more
members trained in specialty areas. Our air and ground teams will continue to be an even
greater service to CAP and the community.
Presently we have eight members from MO-147 serving in Group or Wing Positions and
over the last two years have had nine members recognized with Wing, Regional or
National awards.
We are looking forward to continuing our training, growth, involvement and service to
the community, state and nation and helping each other grow in CAP. As was described
by one of our cadets in a recent letter, CAP is more than an organization, it’s a family
working and learning together.
