UPDATE! ENCAMPMENT GRADUATION CEREMONIES
Parents, Friends, and members of Ohio Wing --
Graduation ceremonies for the 2015 Ohio Wing Encampment will be held on Saturday 27 June 2015. The Graduation will be held on the campus of Wright State University, Fairborn Ohio in 109 Oelman Hall at 10:00. A map of WSU is available CLICK HERE.
Please park in Lot 4, and proceed to Oelman Hall. The Graduation ceremony is a celebration of the cadets accomplishments at encampment, and includes acknowledgment of this accomplishment, awards for achievements, and a short video of the highlights of the week.
After the graduation, weather permitting, we will hold a pass in review at Soccer Field 4, a short distance from Oelman Hall.
Directions to the Graduation Ceremony and cadet pickup from I-675:
After the Graduation and Pass-In-Review, the cadets will return to the dorms for out-processing. Out-processing will take place at 1:00 to 2:00 PM immediately following the Graduation and Pass-In-Review at Lot 10 at Wright State University. You may pick up your cadet at that time. (Lot 10 is the same lot where the cadets where dropped off last week.) Out-processing is a controlled process and basic cadets will not be available to out-process any earlier than 1:00 PM. All basic cadets should depart Wright State University no later than 2:00 PM unless riding home with a staff member.
Thanks, and we look for to seeing you,
DAVID J JENNISON, Lt Col, CAP
Deputy Commander for Support
