VENICE, Fla.— Civil Air Patrol’s Venice Cadet Squadron cadets and senior members proudly supported the Venice Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8118 Veterans Day ceremony at Patriots Park, Venice Florida on 11 November 2016. The Squadron set up a coffee and donut station for the numerous ceremony participants and also distributed flags and water to the many members of the community who attended the Ceremony.
“I am proud to be part of a ceremony that recognizes our Veterans”, said Cadet Staff Sergeant Anthony Williams as he enthusiastically handed out water to individuals attending the ceremony. Cadet Master Sergeant Michael Schultz added, “It was a perfect time to make the community aware of the Venice Cadet Squadron”.
November 2016 marked the 2nd year of Venice Cadet Squadron’s partnership with the Venice Veterans of Foreign War organization, thanks to the ongoing communications efforts of Squadron Senior Member Major Ted Dodds who routinely updates the VFW with Squadron news. “It’s a great partnership”, says Major Dodds, “Our Squadron looks forward to working with the VFW on community events for many years”.
