Cadets .. this is a once in your lifetime experience to meet and hear a member of America’s “Greatest Generation.” Please consider spending this Veterans’ Day in his presence.This is a reminder that on Veteran's Day (Sunday 11 November) we will be honoring and celebrating WW2 veteran Lt. Col. Sam Sachs (USA Ret.) at Group 7 HQ. Lieutenant Colonel Sachs, who landed in Normandy during D-Day in a glider will be making a few remarks, and he may have an opportunity to fly in one of our Civil Air Patrol gliders. (That will be a decision made that day.) You're invited to attend this special event (guests are welcome) to honor an American hero and all of our Veterans! The event begins at 1400 hours (2:00pm) and will be held at Group 7 HQ at 3976 Constitution Avenue on the Los Alamitos Joint Forces Training Base.
