Greenville Civil Air Patrol Honored For Hurricane Irene Work

The Civil Air Patrol in Greenville is receiving a presidential award for handing out food, water, and tarps after Hurricane Irene.

Ten cadets between the ages of 12 and 18-years-old, along with six senior members, went to Hyde and Beaufort Counties to assist.

The Civil Air Patrol is a volunteer auxiliary of the United States Air Force and trains teens in emergency disaster, among other skills.

Since this was a federal declared disaster, this award comes from the top--through the governor's office.

Those teens got their ribbons Tuesday night at the National Guard Armory, while Captain Dave Nelson received a commander's commendation.
