PTC Civil Air Patrol awards its officers


The Peachtree City Falcon Field Composite Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol won several awards at the annual Georgia Wing conference and awards banquet last Saturday at the Peachtree City Conference Center. Three members received annual awards: Major James King-Jack Sorenson Cadet Program Officer of the Year; First Lieutenant Candice Serafin-Colonel (Bud) Payton Public Affairs Officer of the Year and Captain Sharon Waltman-Maj Gen Jeanne M. Holm Aerospace Education Officer of the Year.

These awards are given annually for going above and beyond what is required of the duty positions. 

The squadron also received the Civil Air Patrol Unit Citation Award for exceptionally meritorious service. This is the second time the squadron has been awarded this prestigious award. Commander Major David Serafin said he is very proud and honored to serve a great team.
