Hawaii Wing wins two national CAP awards

Hawaii 24/7 Staff

The Hawaii Wing Civil Air Patrol has received two major awards at the CAP National Conference in Denver, Colo.

The Wing was recognized as being the best in the Pacific Region in the areas of Cadet Programs and Disaster Relief.

The Hawaii Wing received the Mission Award for Excellence and Achievement in the Cadet Programs area.

In a statement, Hawaii Wing Commander Col. Jeffrey Wong said: “This reflects the product of all the hard work everyone accomplished in 2012 to make Hawaii Wing Cadet Programs the re-energized and successful program it is today. Over the past two years, we have collectively overcome many obstacles to re-build our Cadet Program. Having said, the Hawaii Wing is now experiencing tremendous growth in our cadet membership, senior members are stepping up to support, and our units are working together.

Wong also thanked Adjutant General Major General Darryll Wong and the Hawaii Air National Guard for their assistance.

The colonel added: “Receiving the Disaster Relief Award for the third year in a row reflects the important role the Hawaii Wing plays in supporting Hawaii State Civil Defense in protecting our residents and visitors. Our support of Hawaii State Civil Defense with the Tsunami and Tropical Cyclone Warning Missions is unique amongst all Wings, with us maintaining proficiency and readiness 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This dedication was again recently exhibited last month with our activation for Tropical Storm Flossie, for which Hawaii State Civil Defense is grateful.”
