Read Preparing for Encampment by C/MSgt William Yingst
Greetings and welcome to the 2014 Alabama and Mississippi Wings Summer Encampment. Â This yearâs encampment will be located at Camp McCain in Grenada, MS. Â Camp McCain has a rich and historic tradition dating back to 1942 and was used to training American Forces operations in World War II and later used as a German Enemy Prisoners of War Camp. Â Currently, it is utilized by the Mississippi Army National Guard for training our Citizen Soldiers.
Our Summer Encampment is not just providing leadership and aerospace training programâs to student cadets but is used to re-instill leadership practices and procedures into cadet cadre and senior members. Â This year student cadets will receive seminars in Leadership, Aerospace Education and Character Development; along with activities in Military Drill, Air Force Ceremonies, Confidence Course, Physical Fitness, Aerospace Education Tour, EST 2000, Virtual Convey Simulator and much more!
Currently, Staff and Student applications are now open. Â Please be sure to read the Operations Order in its entirety before applying. Â Student Applications will close on June 10, 2014 and Cadre Applications will close on April 15, 2014.
