Jenne earns Billy Mitchell Award
In a ceremony conducted at the Watertown Military Show, Cadet Larry Jenne, Jr. was awarded the Billy Mitchell Milestone Award. This is the second Milestone in the cadet program and marks the completion of Phase II, the Leadership Phase. Watertown Squadron Commander, 1st Lt Matt Lundy and Staff Sergeant Becca Mertes (115th Fighter Wing, Air National Guard) presented Jenne with his Billy Mitchell Certificate, promoting Jenne to the CAP cadet grade of 2nd Lt. Jenne, a Watertown native, has been an active member of Civil Air Patrol since 2013.
Both Lundy and Mertes have ties not only to the 115th Fighter Wing but to the R.C. Jaye Composite Squadron. As a CAP cadet 1st Lt Lundy was Cadet Commander of the R.C. Jaye Composite Squadron and SSgt Mertes was his successor. This was a fitting ceremony for these dedicated members to work together to honor a current Cadet!
