Central New York Awards Banquet
SYRACUSE – Central New York Group is honoring three cadets of the year for 2014, Group Commander Lt. Col. John Jones announced.
Three members of Central New York Group recently received awards for their performance, training and professional development — Cadet MSgt. Nicholas Krupa, Maj. Shawn Herrmann and Maj. Robert Ormsbee.
SYRACUSE — A UPS facility in Syracuse recently got a surprise evening visit from a Civil Air Patrol search-and-rescue team looking for an emergency locator beacon (ELT) that the U.S. Air Force Rescue Coordination Center (AFRCC) was tracking after receiving multiple reports from pilots and air traffic control.
The distress beacon, like an airbag, is activated automatically when a plane goes down.
