Squadron 150 Honored to Host Los Alamitos JFTB Commander

The members of Civil Air Patrol Squadron 150 were honored to have Brigadier General Nathaniel Reddicks, USAF, visit our Squadron's HQ recently. General Reddicks is the commander of the Los Alamitos Joint Forces Training Base (JFTB), a position he assumed in April of 2015.

During an hour-long visit, General Reddicks met with leaders from Squadron 150 and Group 7, which are both headquartered at Los Alamitos JFTB, and then had a general question and answer period with squadron members. In addition to sharing updates regarding the base, the California Military Department and other area news, General Reddicks shared the story of his career, from the beginnings as an enlisted Airman, to his role as the commander of an important military installation in Orange County.

As General Reddicks left the meeting, he shouted, "Go Air Force!".... and we couldn't agree more!

Semper Vigilans!
