Adam McHone Promoted to 1st Lieutenant
Please join me in congratulating Adam McHone on his promotion to 1st Lieutenant!!! Adam joined Civil Air Patrol in October 2002 as a cadet and was part of the KY-039 squadron (Prospect) originally, then he transferred to KY-123 (KY ANG at Louisville International Airport) for awhile. We’re glad he’s made his way to KY-214 as he brings valuable insights from his experiences as a cadet. Since being with us, he’s qualified in several aircrew and mission base staff positions as well as supporting our safety program in the capacity of assistant safety officer.
