Civil Air Patrol Fall Recruiting Night – September 17th

On 9 Sep 15, in News, by Lt Col Darin Ninness

The Concord Composite Squadron, Civil Air Patrol’s local unit in Concord, New Hampshire, will host its Fall Open House and Recruiting Night on Thursday, September 17th starting promptly at 6:30pm at the New Hampshire Army National Guard Armory in Concord.

This twice-annual event is the last opportunity of 2015 for interested youth and adults to become a part of Civil Air Patrol in the Concord area.

The Concord Squadron uses a unique “pipelining” approach to new membership & training which brings prospective members into the unit only twice a year, at predesignated times, to begin new member training.  This Fall’s new member period begins at the Open House on September 17th, and closes with “Inprocessing Night” on October 1st, where new member’s paperwork will be completed, reviewed and forwarded to National Headquarters.

Reservation MapAccess to the NH Army National Guard Reservation is via the Minuteman Way Gate off Regional Drive adjacent to Concord Airport.  Please have photo ID available for the sentries at the gate.  Once on the NH ARNG Reservation, proceed to the HQ Armory, which is located at the extreme northern end of the reservation, near Pembroke Road (see the star in the diagram to the right).

If you are interested in joining but cannot visit during the Open House, don’t despair! Contact Lt Col Darin Ninness via email ( or phone (603-340-7062) for other arrangements.
