    Cadets head to N.M. for Air Force Pararescue Orientation Course

    July 12, 2010

    NATIONAL HEADQUARTERS– Sixty-six cadets from 30 wings in all eight Civil Air Patrol regions will plunge into the exciting world of pararescue at the Air Force Pararescue Orientation Course, beginning Tuesday and continuing through July 20 at Kirtland Air Force Base, N.M.

    The purpose of the pararescue orientation course, known as PJOC, is to expose cadets to the introductory phases of training for the Air Force pararescue, combat rescue officer and survival instructor career fields. This includes being held to the well-defined standards of each career field and participating in such activities as physical training, rappelling and basic survival skills.

    “For over 30 years, PJOC has given cadets the opportunity to realize their potential by guiding them through this unique chance to participate in one of the most rigorous and esteemed National Cadet Special Activities that Civil Air Patrol has to offer,” said Capt. Pam Sever of the New Mexico Wing, course director.

    The course is one of 30 National Cadet Special Activities sponsored by CAP this summer. These activities allow cadets to hone their skills in a variety of areas, including search and rescue, flight and emergency services, science, leadership fundamentals, citizenship and military courtesies, and to explore aerospace technology and aviation careers. In 2009, 1,100 youth participated in CAP-sponsored summer activities.
