  1. I am a former F. Ward Reilly Award recipient, but when I changed wings and found that the Florida Wing is stuck on stupid, I haven’t been very active. CAP is just not as fun as it used to be when we could actually go and do things. but now, with all the restrictions and need to control, it isnt fun.
