PFC Damean Butner, son of Saline County Composite Squadron commander Maj. Mark Butner, was in Marshall recently during a break after basic training and advance instructional training.

Damean is 91 Bravo — a humvee and recovery vehicle mechanic with the U.S. Army.

Now that he has finished his initial training, Damean is now stationed at Fort Polk, Louisiana.

During his visit with the squadron, Damean took time to talk with the cadets about his experiences so far. He noted that military service wasn’t easy, but that his time in Civil Air Patrol had helped prepare him.

For example, he said the standards cadets are held to for their appearance and storing their gear at the Missouri Wing’s summer encampment are actually higher than those for Army recruits in basic training.
