A note from the Encampment Commander

Welcome to the 2015 Iowa Wing Encampment! We have many activities and training sessions/classes planned for this year and look forward to your involvement. This is going to be a great year as we have many interesting activities planned and will do our utmost to have a positive and educational experience.

I’d like to give you an idea of what you can expect and what we hope to achieve over the week of training. Physical training, critical thinking, and demonstration of your CAP knowledge will be daily activities. You will be tested and in the end will prove to yourself and us that you are truly one of the best, you are a Civil Air Patrol Cadet.

I’d like to thank each of you for applying to our encampment and bringing your expertise to Camp Dodge. You, as CAP cadets and seniors, have the vision, the knowledge, the leadership, and the experience to help us pave our way into the future. You are truly our greatest asset today and tomorrow, and we could not accomplish what we do without your continued efforts and leadership. Throughout this encampment, I ask you to stay engaged, keep proactive, and help us shape the future of this great nation of ours.

My personal respect and thanks goes out to all of you.

Jason S. Erickson, Maj
Encampment Commander, Iowa Wing
