“We Seek, We Find”
The motto of our squadron has a deeper meaning than the obvious emergency services connotations. It speaks of our quest to find able and willing professional volunteers to perform our three missions, Aerospace Education, Cadet Programs and Emergency Services. As a composite squadron, we are dedicated to providing the young men and women who join as cadets with the environment and structure to grow and develop into responsible, self-reliant and productive future leaders of our country. We do all of this promoting and living CAP’s core values, Integrity, Volunteer Service, Excellence and Respect.
We're proud of our cadets for this accomplishment. Outstanding work! ... See MoreSee Less

Cable Composite Squadron 25 Civil Air Patrol cadets and senior members had the honor of virtually hosting Colonel Nicole Malachowski, USAF (Ret.), a distinguished graduate of USAFA Class of 1996, former Commander of the 333rd Fighter Squadron, the first female pilot of the USAF Thunderbirds, and a former CAP Cadet of Squadron 25. Colonel Malachowski's inspirational story and lasting impact on aspiring young adults from multiple generations left a profound impression on the members.
Said Col Malachowski on her LinkedIn page:
I recently had the pleasure of doing a Zoom visit with some Civil Air Patrol Cadets from Cable Composite Squadron 25, located in Upland, California. As many people know, I got my start as a cadet in Civil Air Patrol at age 12....in this very same squadron.
We talked about my path from CAP cadet ➡️ fighter pilot ➡️ Thunderbird pilot ➡️ professional speaker....and everything in between. They asked a lot of thoughtful questions covering topics from how to prepare for a career in the military and what it feels like to fly in a fighter jet, to overarching life lessons and advice.
It was pretty special to connect with the cadets from my old squadron, knowing that room was full of service-oriented, talented young Americans. Turns out - that I had met one Captain in the Squadron before - I was his cadet flight sergeant at a CAP encampment back when we were 13 years old!
I can't recommend CAP enough, especially for kids - military aspirations or not! It helps build character, confidence, and develop community leaders. What’s not to love?
Fun fact: CAP even funded my flying lessons in high school!

Last night marked the first major milestone of our return to the moon. Crewed by three test mannequins and Snoopy, Artemis 1 launched from pad 39B (of Apollo fame) with 15% more power than the Saturn V rocket. The next mission, Artemis 2, will be a crewed mission that will orbit the moon, and Artemis 3 will mark our first time landing humans on the moon since 1972. That mission will also make history with the first woman on the moon and the first person of color. Below is a great overview of the Artemis program in three parts. It’s definitely worth a watch. ...
