A local youth in the Civil Air Patrol received the General Billy Mitchell Award on Sept. 17 at Dundalk American Legion Post 38. He is a member of the Osprey Composite Squadron.

Cadet Second Lieutenant Zachary Halcott received the Mitchell Award recognizing his excellence in four areas of cadet life: leadership, aerospace, fitness and character. Mitchell cadets must have passed comprehensive examinations on leadership and aerospace topics and have completed a week-long encampment immersing them in a challenging Core Values and STEM environment.

Cadet Second Lt Halcott also received a Certificate of Special Recognition from the Honorable C. A. Dutch Ruppersberger, D-Maryland. The Osprey Composite Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol meets weekly at the Dundalk American Legion on Tuesday nights at 7 p.m. The meeting is open to everyone.
