National Capital Wing Color Guard Leads Off Today’s Nationals Game

Congratulations to the National Capital Wing Color Guard!  With cadets from both Arlington Composite Squadron and Challenger 1 Cadet Squadron, the National Capital Wing Color Guard presented the colors to kick off this afternoon’s Major League Baseball game between the Miami Marlins and the Washington Nationals at Nationals Park in Washington, DC.  Great job!

The National Capital Wing Color Guard presents the colors at Nationals Park on 30 August 2017.

Meeting cancelled for 29 June 2016

With the end of the school year, encampment and other cadet activities, and the forthcoming long weekend, we have decided to cancel this Wednesday’s meeting.  We’ll send out another notice regarding the July 6th meeting.  I hope everyone is having a great beginning to the summer, and I wish you a fun and safe July 4th weekend.

Meeting cancelled 27 January 2016

With the region’s continued recovery from the snowstorm, and the fact that Arlington County Schools will be closed on Wednesday, we will not have our regular squadron meeting.  Our next meeting, weather permitting, will be on 3 February.
