The Walton County Civil Air Patrol Cadet program meets from 7 - 9 p.m. every Tuesday at 131 Main St. in Loganville.
The CAP is the official Air Force Auxillary. The U.S. Air Forces uses the CAP for homeland defense in times of extreme need (Like in WWII) and Civil Services. The CAP Cadet Program teaches leadership and independence. Cadets learn to take charge of a situation and make strong decisions. If there is an emergency the CAP is called upon because of its extensive Emergency Services training. Cadets are taken up in small aircraft and taught how to fly the aircraft and navigate. Cadets can even earn a flight scholarships and learn to fly aircraft on their own.
Cadets can also receive rank and participate, and even lead, a flight (group of cadets). There are 15 ranks overall, and new leadership positions with each. Military discipline is exercised in the CAP and is shown in every meeting.
