Squadron Change of Command on Senior and Cadet Side

Post date: Jun 18, 2016 4:07:06 AM

This spring our squadron experienced changes in leadership on both the adult and cadet sides of the program.

On 9 May 2016, we hosted both a squadron and group change of command. Maj Paul Creed transferred command of our squadron to Maj Bill Hrinko. Shortly thereafter, Maj Creed accepted command of the Ohio Wing Group 3. Col Theodore Shaffer, the Ohio Wing Commander, presided over both ceremonies. We wholeheartedly thank Maj Creed for his four years of tireless service and dedication as our commander.

A few weeks earlier, C/1st Lt Gentile transferred cadet command authority to C/1st Lt Kanning during a cadet change of command ceremony on 25 April 2016. Thank you to C/1st Lt Gentile for his successful tenure as cadet commander and congratulations to C/1st Kanning on assuming the cadet commander position.

An ambitious vision has been laid out for the whole unit and we look forward to what is in store for the squadron!
