Change in Command
For those who had not received the information yet, Lt Gates had a situation come up that unfortunately required him to step down as the Encampment Commander.
In order to keep staff stability among the Senior Members, I (Phil Kost) have assumed the role of Encampment Commander. C/Lt Col Paine and his team are bringing me up to speed and I know that we will have a very successful Encampment.
Congratulations to the cadets that have made Staff! All staff listings can be found on the staff list page. Please congratulate them.
