Group 3 Change of Command
Please welcome Lt Col Dan Brodsky as the new Group 3 Commander and thank Maj Jim Mathews for four years of dedicated command to the group. Lt Col Brodsky joined CAP as a cadet in NYWG and has almost 30 years of service. Most recently, he has served as the wing director of education and training. He is a master rated cadet programs officer, private pilot, and sUAS pilot.
At the change of command ceremony, Col Sydow presented Maj Mathews with a Meritorious Service Award for his command. Under his leadership, last year all six Group 3 units earned the Quality Cadet Unit Award. Group members supported emergency services missions including in NC, SC, TX, and PR in addition to VA. Cadets orientation flight numbers are exceeding goals and pilot onboarding is setting the standard. Maj Mathews will serve as the wing plans and programs officer next.
Thank you both for your service and dedication to CAP and our communities!
