AND OCCASIONALLY ON A SATURDAY. CADETS ARE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND
SQUADRON, GROUP AND WING LEVEL WEEKEND TRAINING.
Cadet Activities
OUR CAPSTONE EXERCISE, THAT PUTS ALL THESE TASKS TOGETHER, IS OUR
GROUP LEVEL SAREX IN OCTOBER. THE 2017 EXERCISE HAD OVER FIFTY

CADETS. AT THE END OF THE WEEKEND, EVERYONE GAINED CONFIDENCE AND
COMPETENCE IN CONDUCTING A MISSING PERSON SEARCH AND LOOKING FOR A

2017 Squadron Commander's Letter
2017 has been a very productive year for the Table Rock Lake Composite Squadron.
During this time the squadron has been very busy in training, recruiting and working to
better develop a well rounded truly composite squadron.
Over the last twelve months the squadron has been involved and active in presenting two
ACE Camps for the Hollister After School program. On March 3, 2017, squadron
representatives were invited to Lake of the Ozarks and was presented a Certificate of
Recognition from the “Missouri After School Network”. This was for Outstanding
Partner with the Hollister School for the squadrons work in the Hollister’s After School
Program.
The involvement with the Hollister School has also lead to the school purchasing a high
quality weather station and a Redbird G1000 flight simulator that is used not only in the
ACE Camp program but is made available to the total academic program in the school.
This equipment and our squadron members involvement are helping the students build
toward their future careers for tomorrow.
The flight simulator is also made available to our squadron members to advance their
instrument flight training and make it possible to obtain flight training on the G1000 at no
cost.
The squadron was also very active in a three day fly in / mini air show hosted by the
Branson Airport. Several WW II aircraft were on display and a great airshow
performance by Mr. Kyle Franklin was done. During the event our squadron also had a
very busy information booth set up and had the CAP van and aircraft on display.
A number of cadets have attend several Wing activities again this year. They took a very
active part when MO-147 hosted the Group V, two day training and exercise on the
Lewis property for the second year in a row. In attendance were cadet and seniors from
all groups in the MO Wing and some members from the Arkansas Wing. Three of our
cadets also served on the Cadet Command Staff at the 2017 Summer Encampment hosted
by the MO Wing.
We were also honored to have one of our cadets selected to attend the Cadet Regional
Flight Training School held in Kansas this past summer where she was able to start her
flight career.
This last year also saw two of our senior members being selected as the only two
Missouri Wing representatives to attend the week long National Staff College held at
Maxwell Air Force Base in Alabama.
The annual fund raising Cardboard Boat Race was a great success again this year and a
new record was set in the amount of operating funds raised and the number of

17

participants for the event. We are looking forward to the 2018 activity being even bigger
and better.
Our members also set a new record in the “The Wreaths Across American Program” this
year in funds raised and the number of wreaths placed on veterans graves in the MO
Veterans Cemetery in Springfield. This has been a great opportunity for our members to
be able to show our respect and thankfulness for the men and women who have served
our Nation. This dedication was also reflected in the cadets again placing U.S. Flags on
the graves of all the veterans in the McCullough Cemetery for Memorial Day again this
year.
The senior side of the squadron has also been very busy. They have participated in a
number on training activities and provided staff and crew members for missions in our
local area and across the Wing. The squadron’s disaster involvement was also
recognized in a featured news story on a local TV station that was also picked up and
aired across the State.
Three of the senior staff also were selected to fly to Texas and take part in a three day
photo mission following Hurricane Harvey that hit the Texas coast.
The members of MO-147 have continued to shine in all areas of CAP and this was again
very noticeable when the Group V awards were presented in August 2017. Of the
nineteen awards submitted by Group V, sixteen of them were awarded to members in
MO-147. This outstanding effort was again recognized during the Wing Conference
where MO-147 members received nine Wing awards for 2017.
December brought our year to a close with our 2017 Recognition and Christmas Banquet
where we again set a new record in attendance. This banquet also marked the end of the
four year term of our Squadron Commander, Lt Col Tom Martin and the torch was
passed to the new Squadron Commander, Lt Steve Meinzen.
