World War II Civil Air Patrol Cadets


This month’s issue of Civil Air Patrol (CAP) Volunteer highlights some of the youngest members of Civil Air Patrol: World War II Cadets.  Those who were too young to enlist in the military found CAP to be a place to support their country during WWII.    

Major Paul Gilmore, a Senior Member of Valkyrie Cadet Squadron is one of the cadets highlighted in this article.  Major Gilmore helped our squadron secure a meeting place at Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum where we meet every Tuesday evening.  Although Major Gilmore is supposedly retired now, but he continues to volunteer his time to our squadron, and actively participates in many events and activities.  We are very grateful to Major Gilmore for his dedication to Valkyrie Cadet Squadron over the years and his continued willingness to be a friend of Valkyrie and help our squadron succeed.
