Reaper Newsletter


About This Newsletter

We wanted a way for graduates and parents to get updates on the squadron, accomplishments, and events. There will be cadets featured monthly, information about various individual accomplishments by squadron members and small articles about events in which the squadron has participated. If you have any feedback or suggestions, please route them through the Squadron Cadet Public Affairs Officer; the email address is located at the bottom of the newsletter. Happy reading!

Reaper cadets build teamwork and muscle as they embark on an Eagle's Peak hike for a training session.

"The hike was on the morning of Saturday, 27 August 2016. It started at about 0405 and ended at 0730." - C1C Dan Reynolds, Training Officer

3. What is your favorite song?
