Today over 800 cadets and instructors march in the last Wing Parade of the summer. - Penhold Alberta Canada. Thanks for Al Nagy for sending these pictures to me. There was a time when you couldn't drag me away from cadet camp. I loved it so much as a cadet that I worked as an instructor there when I was in College.
When I was finally put in charge of my own 'flight' of basic training students I was given the worst non-commissioned teenagers ever and we still pulled off a huge victory and won best barracks, best sports flight and overall best flight at the end of the summer. No one had ever pulled off such a feat of training and organization. I turned that group of 50 or so window lickers into a tight military unit.
If they would have given us ammunition I could have taken over the province in 24 hours.
