Lt. Col. Ismael J. Rodriguez
Deputy Commander for Cadets

Muñiz ANG Base Cadet Squadron
Puerto Rico Wing

Cadets from the Puerto Rico Wing’s Muñiz ANG Base Cadet Squadron were enjoying a unit meeting – including uniform inspection, a safety briefing, character development class, testing and promotions – on Nov. 17 when the session suddenly turned very special.

The chief of staff of the Air Force, Gen. David Goldfein, and the Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Kaleth O. Wright, were visiting the base during the squadron’s meeting, and they dropped by to speak with the cadets.

The two men spent time with the cadets and talked to them about Civil Air Patrol’s importance to the Air Force.

In addition, Goldfein took the opportunity to present Cadet Lt. Col. Angelymar Sanchez with her CAP solo wings. Sanchez was introduced to Goldfein as the first CAP cadet to receive the Continental Motors Group Scholarship, which provided her with $12,000 to pursue her private pilot certificate. She recently completed her first solo flight after 21 hours of flight lessons.
