The Honor Guard program is a very serious matter in nature, appearance, and commitment. If a unit Honor Guard has committed to perform at a function, it is necessary for that Honor Guard to fulfill its commitment. Failure to be on time or a “no show” may endanger the Honor Guard program nationally. Membership in any CAP Honor Guard is not a right, but a privilege and encouraged. Active participation in the Honor Guard is necessary in order for the member to maintain his or her proficiency.
While we continue to try to grow, train, and equip the Group VI Honor Guard, we do continue to manage a Group VI Color Guard that currently has representation across three squadrons in the Group. If you would like to participate with the Group VI Color Guard and their performances, please contact Maj Foster for information.
National Cadet Competition
The National Cadet Competition is the highest echelon of competition for Civil Air Patrol (CAP) Drill Teams and Color Guards, including all 52 Wings and 8 regions of the CAP. Each year, the 52 Wings host their respective competition to select one drill team and one color guard winner to represent their wing at their respective region competition. Wing Competitions are normally held between December and March while Region Competitions are usually held between April and May. The winning drill teams and color guards from each region then face off at the National Cadet Competition held every summer. The winning NCC teams are awarded the United States Air Force Chief of Staff Sweepstakes Award Trophy, with their wing name being added to the trophy's display.
Cadet officers are not allowed to compete. If your unit doesn’t have enough interested but you would like to participate, please contact Maj Foster to see if sufficient numbers are interested in building a Group VI team.
Cadet Advisory Council
The Cadet Advisory Council is defined as having three main purposes: provide an organization where cadets gain leadership experience at higher organizational levels, aid the commander in monitoring and implementing the Cadet Program, and to make recommendations for improving and running the Cadet Program.
If you have feedback on improving operations in your squadron or within Group VI or Texas Wing, please contact your squadron CAC representative.
CyberPatriot is the National Youth Cyber Education Program that began as a proof of concept demonstration at AFA’s Air Warfare Symposium to inspire students toward careers in cybersecurity or other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. The program features the National Youth Cyber Defense Competition for high school and middle school students. It is in its seventh season and is open to all high schools, middle schools, and accredited home school programs around the country. JROTC units of all Services, Civil Air Patrol squadrons, and Naval Sea Cadet Corps divisions may also participate in the competition.
If you have questions about getting involved in CyberPatriot, please talk to your unit commander or contact Capt Keith Schramm for information.
