Head Start

As with any new venture in life, things can be extremely difficult walking into a situation that you do not know very much about. In order to help you out a little bit, we have included the Detachment 820 Skyraider Cadet Manual. This manual is designed to provide cadets with the information necessary to both ease the transition into the program and with an idea of what the Skyraider cadet standards are. This guide covers retention standards, customs and courtesies, uniform wear, drill and ceremonies, organization requirements, and much more. It is a great resource to help you make the right first step as a cadet in our program.
