Cadet 2nd Lt. Aiden Alvarez and Cadet 2nd Lt. Hunter Patterson of the Civil Air Patrol, Hawaii Wing’s Kona Composite Squadron recently earned the General Billy Mitchell Award.

The award has existed since 1964 and honors the late Brig. Gen. Billy Mitchell, aviation pioneer, advocate and supporter of an independent Air Force for America. The award is earned after completing the first eight achievements of the cadet program. In addition, the cadet must pass an arduous 100-question examination testing leadership theory and aerospace topics.
