MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Cadet Lt. Col. Mark R. Guiney and Lt. Col. Robert V. Mills were selected by the Civil Air Patrol to participate in the International Air Cadet Exchange Program.
Guiney traveled to the Netherlands while Mills escorted a group of cadets to Canada July 18 to Aug. 5.
The program gives about 70 CAP cadets and 16 adult escorts an opportunity to serve as ambassadors by visiting participating foreign countries and promoting international friendship and understanding through a common focus on aviation.
Guiney, a cadet since 2003, has earned numerous awards and commendations through his involvement in CAP, including the General Ira Eaker Award, Commander's Commendation, Unit Citation, Air Force Association Outstanding Cadet Award, VFW Outstanding Cadet Award and the Red Service Ribbon. He served as the Commander of the 2008 cadet encampment held at Camp Dawson in Kingwood, W.Va., and he was also selected as the 2008 W.Va. Wing Cadet of the Year.
