Squadron Commander Bio
Capt Charlie Burwell was born in Newark, Ohio. Capt Burwell's Civil Air Patrol career started in 2009 at 13 years old as a Cadet. By 18, he was a Mitchel Cadet and served as the Cadet Commander. Capt Burwell then used the Mitchell achievement to gain an advancement to PV2 when he enlisted in the United States Army.
At his first duty station with the United States Army, Fort Wainwright, Alaska, he transferred his CAP service to Eielson Composite Squadron. He served as the Search and Rescue Officer and assisted with running the Cadet Program.
While on one of his many real-world Emergency Services missions in Alaska, he directly participated in a search for a lost hiker and was awarded his first Save. When the Army transferred him to Fort Drum, NY, he transferred back to Licking County Composite Squadron and assisted with Squadron activities whenever possible.
