In recognition of Air Force Capt. Julian Gluck's outstanding service, he is Air Force Times’ 2018 Airman of the Year.

Cadet Officer School marked its 50th year this summer, welcoming cadets from 35 wings and two overseas squadrons from Germany and Japan to Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama, home of Civil Air Patrol National Headquarters.
