Group 2 News

On April 21st, 2018, PAWG Group 2 welcomed its new commander, Maj Joel Mutschler. Below are the expectations of our new commander. Please remember that Maj Mutschler has an "open door" policy for any questions or concerns.

Commander's Expectations

1. The vision of the Civil Air Patrol is to be “America's Air Force auxiliary, building the nation's finest force of citizen volunteers serving America.” We work together to support the mission of the Civil Air Patrol which is “Supporting America's communities with emergency response, diverse aviation and ground services, youth development, and promotion of air, space and cyber power.” In support of this mission, I have certain general expectations for everyone within Group 2.

2. We will embrace our CAP Core Values.
a. Integrity. We will do what is right even when no one is looking.
b. Volunteer Service. We will remember we exist to serve others.
c. Excellence. We will strive for excellence in all we do. Mistakes will happen, but it is what we learn from those mistakes that matters as we seek to improve ourselves and our group.
d. Respect. People deserve and expect to be treated with dignity and respect. We will be conscious of our words, actions, and gestures.

3. We represent the Civil Air Patrol in our community and we are part of the Total Force Air Force. As such, I have high expectations for everyone in Group 2 to maintain standards and professionalism.

4. We will strive to continually improve ourselves and remain proficient to meet mission requirements. This means that we will each strive to excel in the cadet program, professional development, and additional training courses. In short, seek out opportunities to improve yourself. I firmly believe that I am here to serve you and to set each of you up for success.

5. Safety is paramount and we will practice risk management to safeguard our members as well as our equipment. I will have a separate safety policy that expounds on this point.

6. We will look to grow our group and our squadrons, but just as important to gaining new member it is just as important to retain each of you. The best way to do this is to remain relevant to our community, state, and nation, but have fun while doing it.

7. I look forward to working with each of you. I have an “open door” philosophy and anyone in the Group 2 may contact me anytime at 717-989-1524 or jmutschler@pawg.cap.gov.
