Civil Air Patrol cadets honored for disaster service

In recognition of their service during Hurricane's Ike and Gustav, several members of the Gregg County Civil Air Patrol were commended Saturday afternoon.  Congressman Louie Gohmert was on hand, personally presenting commendations to cadets and officer of the CPA, at a ceremony at First Presbyterian Church in Longview.

The civil air patrol pitched in to provide meals to thousands of evacuees during the hurricanes. The civil air patrol is a volunteer organization that operates under the command and codes of the United States Air Force.
