The California Wing Cadet Programs family, Civil Air Patrol, and America are with heavy hearts with the news of our brother USAF A1C Kenneth Sturgill's passing on 07Jul16 on active duty. Kenneth was our commander, flight mate, mentor, best friend, brother, son. He was a man of determination and honor. He impacted so many in a positive way by leading by example and pushing everyone he met toward greatness. He was a true American Patriot and lived to serve others. Thoughts from his father "While we have lost a son, an airman, a patriot, an amazing young man, Tammy & I can take some peace in the fact that we have no regrets. All of our conversations (including our last) were always respectful, honest, open, and loving" Blue skies and tail winds brother!! #NFQ
