Summer Encampment 2022


Ladies and gents, I appreciate all you have done and will continue to do moving forward with planning and executing this summer's encampment.

I could not have wished for a better equipped, harder working, or soundly valued collection of individuals I am proud to call my Executives and friends. However, this leads me to some news I am saddened yet relieved to state - as some of you know, I have received appointments from the United States Air Force Academy and the United States Naval Academy. While I still have some doubts surrounding this pathway, I believe it is God's calling in my life that I take a leap of faith and accept one of these outreaches. In addition, having been awarded the Lt Col William E. Hanna Jr. Memorial Flight Scholarship, I must begin flight training as soon as possible to fulfill the justification of this gracious offer.

To clarify my reason for the above statements, after Group III ALS and CTEP, the realization has befallen me that if I cannot dedicate myself entirely to the activity at hand, every cadre member and student will suffer because of it. In short, while I would love to continue forward as your Cadet Commander, I must turn my focus on college and life matters at hand.

Please be rest assured that the transition process is already in effect, and C/Col Compton will be taking hold of the reins henceforth. Cadre announcements will disseminate within the next 48 hours, after which y'all will leap onward with what will be one of Texas Wing's most extraordinary activities (no matter what the haters think).

On a positive note, due to my proximity to Camp Maxey, I am happy to say that I will be able to stay on as an advisor should the need arise, so no getting rid of me that easy!

The experiences and memories forged the past four and a half years shall remain with me until the end of my days. Please let me know if there is ever anything I can do, and I wish you all the best. 

God bless, and clear skies,
C/Col Skylar Henry
