Imbriale named Civil Air Patrol representative
Peter H. Imbriale, a U.S. Civil Air Patrol (CAP) cadet and Jamestown resident, has been selected as the Civil Air Patrol's primary northeast regional representative to its National Cadet Advisory Council. The council provides advice and ideas to improve the leadership of the Civil Air Patrol cadet programs.
Cadet Imbriale will be one of eight cadets on the council. Each will represent his or her Civil Air Patrol region. There are 27,000 cadets in CAP.
The council works with the staffs of both the CAP National Cadet Program and national headquarters, including the CAP national commander, Maj. Gen. Antonio J. Pineda. Among his new responsibilities, Imbriale will represent the Civil Air Patrol cadets of the northeast at the CAP National Conference held this August in Atlanta.
Imbriale's experience with the Rhode Island Wing of CAP includes serving as cadet commander for the 2007 Rhode Island Wing Encampment, the 2006 Rhode Island National Guard Air Show, and the South County Composite Squadron. Imbriale has also been the chairperson for the Rhode Island Wing Cadet Advisory Council and the CAP Northeast Region Cadet Advisory Council. Imbriale is also the recent recipient of a flight scholarship from the Rhode Island Wing, to be utilized to reach his goal of earning an FAA private pilot license.
Civil Air Patrol is the official auxiliary of the United States Air Force, with over 65,000 volunteers with three missions: cadet programs, emergency services, and aerospace education. Cadet members range in age from 12 to 21 years, participating in "squadrons" throughout the U.S. and internationally, five of which are in Rhode Island.
