Senior Members and Cadets,


Once again, CAP is presented with a remarkable opportunity to serve our community and honor our nation's heroes at the Governor's Mansion on December 16, 2023, from 1000hrs to 1730hrs. We've been invited by the DVMA to volunteer at the Colorado National Guard 2023 Holiday Family Reception (1130hrs to 1330hrs) and Holiday Reception Honoring Gold Star Families (1500hrs to 1700hrs)—events of utmost importance and prestige.  


In light of the significance of this occasion, I am reaching out to recruit 12 of our best and brightest Cadets. I am seeking individuals who are ready to serve and who embody CAP's core values at this event. 


I am specifically looking for Cadets holding the rank of at least Staff Sergeant with Service Dress, White Gloves, and ideally a CAP trench coat (if available). In the event of inclement weather, a trench coat will be provided for the event. Their commitment to serving for the entire duration of the event would be highly appreciated, but split service is acceptable upon advance notification.   

If you are interested in volunteering please send me your name, rank, and email address with me. 


Please make note that this event is on the same day as Wreathes Across America.

Thank you for your help in helping make this event special.
