C/Lt Col Dietrich Fassero is from the Lynchburg
Composite Squadron, where he serves as the Cadet
Commander, Primary Representative to the VAWG CAC,
and Honor Guard Instructor. He serves on his squadron's
aircrew and has ratings in the Comms and ES Specialty
Tracks. Fassero is a senior in high school and in a family of
13. He enjoys working as an Editor-in- Chief and writer for
The Odyssey Online. C/Lt Col Fassero has been in CAP for
7 years this April, and the 2017 VAWG ENC will be his fifth
encampment. His favorite part of encampment is seeing
cadets overcome obstacles in teamwork, watching them pull
together and perform as a crew, and ultimately, leading them
across the graduation field to let them show off their newly-
acquired skills to their parents, siblings, and friends. C/Lt Col
Fassero's biggest piece of advice for cadets attending encampment is, "Focus... Focus on the 
instruction given to you, focus on your tasks, and focus on your team. If you focus on these 
aspects of encampment, you will learn the most you can and have the most fun throughout
