Cadet Tymber

 My niece Tymber  and her friend Chance are Cadets in the Idaho Wing Cadet Program.

This past week July 19th through the 28th, Tymber attended a training program held at Gowen Field, Boise Idaho.
Four Cadets left from Tymber's home town. 

The purpose of the Idaho Wing Cadet Program is:

"Serving America by performing Homeland Security and humanitarian missions for our communities, states, and nation; developing our country’s youth; and educating our citizens on the importance of air and space power.”
Company Overview
Objects and Purposes. The objects and purposes of CAP, as contained in Article VI of its Constitution, are to:
a. Provide an organization to encourage and aid American citizens in the contribution of their efforts, services, and resources in the development of aviation and in the maintenance of aerospace supremacy.
b. Encourage and develop by example the voluntary contribution of private citizens to the public welfare.
c. Provide aviation and aerospace education and training especially to its senior and cadet members.
d. Encourage and foster civil aviation in local communities.
e. Provide an organization of private citizens with adequate facilities to assist in meeting local and national emergencies.
 Tymber had a great time and a memorable experience. Tymber is the 4th person on the bottom row without a hat. 

They even flew in airplanes and once they were in the air Tymber was able to take over flying the airplane. What an exciting time.
 I was able to go and see her at the closing ceremony Sunday, July 28th. 
When we arrived at Gowen Field the cadets were lined up. I tried to figure out which one was Tymber, but couldn't really tell.
They started with the American flag with the music playing The Star Spangled Banner. The did a few other things and then the cadets marched around the field and by us and off the field.

Here is a silly video I took - is real short because I didn't know what I was doing or what was going on. But, here it is. 

 It was short and sweet, then we were able to see Tymber.
Jason and Sharon come to the program with me. Tymber was really happy to see us. However, when we approached her she was crying because it was over and time to go home. She really, really loved it.
I had Tymber salute us.
Outside the barracks she stayed in. I was excited that she was allowed to let us see inside.
This was her bed.
All the girls had a bottom bunk because there were only a few girls in the program.
This was the cabinet that she had her stuff in.

Below is Tymber with one of the friends she made during the cadet training. Way to go Tymber, we are all very proud of you!
