We have just completed a very informative and successful wing conference.  I am proud of every member of the wing for your accomplishments in 2018.  We met our recruiting goal,  growing to 1024 members at the end of 2018.  Our Teacher's Aerospace Workshop sponsored by UT Knoxville added 35 new AEM members.  Our cadets flew 240 o'rides, 127 cadets completed a very successful and challenging encampment at MTSU.  We deployed 21 members to support NCWG and SCWG during the aftermath of Hurricane Florence and throughout 2018 had one save and five finds.  

I'm thankful for the hard work of the Murfreesboro Composite Squadron as the sponsoring unit for this year's conference.  Especially the commander, Capt Debra Torp-Pedersen and our wing PAO, Lt Col Morgan Torp-Pedersen.  A special thanks goes to Lt Col Andrew Oppmann of MTSU, in his role as Vice President for Marketing, for making the entire weekend special and memorable for our Guest of Honor and Speaker, the CAP National Commander, Maj Gen Mark Smith as we celebrated five years of a strong and growing partnership with MTSU.
