Senior Member Spotlight: 2020 Encampment Commandant of Cadets: Capt Patrick Mulligan
Since re-joining Civil Air Patrol in 2016, I've had the opportunity to experience many facets of what CAP has become since I was last in as a Cadet in the late 80's before going into the Army as a Sat. Comms operator with the Robin Sage SF tier 2 SMU group out of Ft. Bragg, NC. I've attended 5 Hawaii Wing Cadet Training Groups (1 of which I served as a Commandant of Cadets), I now serve as the Maui County Composite Squadron 057 Deputy Commander For Seniors, prior to this I served as the Deputy Commander For Cadets for 3 yrs and have taken on the role of Commandant of Cadets for the 5th Cadet Training Group Encampment for a 2nd year in a row. The mentoring of our youth is a passion, and I love seeing the growth the cadets have during these encampments. I hope to help perpetuate a spirit of growth and learning for as long as I am in CAP. I am looking forward to this year's encampment and the growth this next batch of cadets will have.
