Canadian cadet visits Milwaukee Composite Squadron 5
Oak Creek, Wis. — Each quarter, Milwaukee Composite Squadron 5 invites a guest to speak at one of its meetings. This quarter, Sergeant Nate Widdifield, a Royal Canadian Army Cadet, spoke to the unit about his organization.
The Royal Canadian Army Cadets is Canada’s oldest youth program. There are approximately 21,000 army cadets in about 450 corps across the country. Together with the Royal Canadian Sea Cadets and Royal Canadian Air Cadets, it forms the largest federally funded youth program. As in CAP, cadets are civilians and are not members of the Canadian Forces.
Sergeant Widdifield is an exchange student who attends Wisconsin Lutheran High School with Cadet Second Lieutenant Sam Luebbe.
