Training Officer, Delta Flight. 1st Lt. Joseph Ward

1st Lt. Ward joined the Civil Air Patrol in April of 2015.  He is currently the Deputy Commander for Cadets, Squadron Leadership Officer, Historian, Assistant Testing officer and Assistant Alerting Officer for Hampton Roads Composite Squadron.  Lt. Ward is a pilot, who originally joined CAP to fly. He likes working with cadets and seeing them go from being a new basic to a leader in the organization. Cadets truly are the leaders of the future and he believes that the Civil Air Patrol helps get them there. In addition to being a pilot, Lt. Ward served our country in the Army as a military police officer and shortly after getting out realized his gift for working with students and became a full-time substitute teacher in Chesapeake City Public Schools. He will graduate in May with an Associate’s degree and will transfer to a Georgia college in late fall where he will begin working on his Bachelor’s degree in Aviation Science and Management. One of Lt. Ward's favorite quotes is, "You can never truly succeed if you never fail and you can never fail completely, if you always try."
