This is a series of journal entries written by Civil Air Patrol cadets, ages 12 to 15, during their time at Winter Encampment at Camp Swift.
They came later that day beginning at 1 p.m., creating a long line of uniformed young persons, each flanked by a bundle of belongings. They had brought everything they would need for the week. After saying their goodbyes to their families, they piled all their luggage to stand in line as they waited to sign in. When it was their turn at the in-processing desk, they presented their paperwork, and then went on to their assigned flight station. As they returned to the sunny day outside and retrieved their baggage, they started looking for their barracks building, which at times was difficult in the confusion of the moment. Soon, to their great relief, they would find the right place which would be "home" for the following five days, and find the bunks they would sleep in.
Tyler Morning Telegraph: Civil Air Patrol Cadets Trained At Winter Encampment
:: I like this. The paper essentially gave the Cadets a chance to create content, written in the form of a blog, but published in the newspaper. Good stuff.
Bravo Zulu to Lt. Davis and her staff, for putting out the story in an innovative way.
