(Photo credit: C/Maj Carlos Pineda, CAP)Cadet 2nd Lt. Laura Boehk of Maryland Wing's Fort McHenry Composite Squadron recently graduated from Civil Air Patrol's Cadet Officer School (COS), held at Huntington College, Alabama. COS is patterned after the U.S. Air Force Squadron Officer School offering an academically challenging, in-depth study of the skills of leadership. Graduates of the course are authorized to wear a silver star on their Gen. Billy Mitchell Award ribbon.

While at the course, Boehk had two instructors; one was an Air Force officer and the other was a CAP officer. She learned about the Air Force approach to the psychology of leadership, problem solving techniques, effective writing, effective speaking, and group dynamics. The course was divided between lecture, seminar, and hands-on training.
