Civil Air Patrol, Maryland Wing, Mt Airy Composite Squadron, under the command of Maj Weinhold, observed the symbolic tradition of passing the flag. It is always difficult to follow in the footsteps of a good leader. Mt Airy was twice blessed in having to choose a successor from two amazing candidates.
Decision made, Color Guard polished, family and friends assembled, the flag was passed from C/Lt Boline to C/CMSgt Flanick. In addition to the change of command, two outstanding cadets, C/CMSgt Weinhold and C/CMSgt Huey were presented with the Armstrong Award. The evening of military tradition was topped off with inspirational speeches, camaraderie and light refreshments.
