1st Training Wing! TRAILBLAZERS! 1st Training Wing! TRAILBLAZERS!
2019 is a special year in Tri-Wing Encampment history as it begins to transition away from some traditional encampment designations. Historically, the 4 squadrons put together were merely referred to as the "encampment" and squadrons named from "Squadron 1" thru "Squadron 4." Under this year's Cadet Executive Cadre, the 4 squadrons are being named the "101st Cadet Training Squadron" thru the "104th Cadet Training Squadron."
This change was implemented to increase espirit de corps among the students/cadre and to bolster the cadre's sense of "ownership" over their squadrons with the understanding that no other future encampment will have the same designations. The Cadet Executive Cadre hopes that subsequent encampments will continue using the system and that 2020's encampment will be home to the 2nd Training Wing and the 105th-108th Cadet Training Squadrons.
