One would think that Civil Air Patrol Cadet Captain Glenn B. "Guy" Pusey III and the Delaware Aviation Hall of Fame Youth Achievement Award were created for each other. Guy has every intention of becoming an aerospace design engineer and is pursuing CAP and academic curricula, including the United States Air Force Academy, to make it happen.
The son of Glenn and Jacqueline Pusey of Bear, the l6¬year-old honor student at Red Lion Christian Academy joined the New Castle Cadet Squadron of the CAP, Delaware Wing, in May 1998. He has participated in nearly all squadron meetings, search-and-rescue exercises and special wing events, and he is a graduate of major advanced courses of the National Ground Search and Rescue School. His dedication has been rewarded with rapid rises in rank, including Flight Sergeant, First Sergeant, Flight Commander and now Squadron Commander.
Recipient of a Delaware Wing flight scholarship, Capt. Pusey is training at SkySafety, New Castle County Airport. He expects to solo this fall and ultimately earn instrument and multi-engine ratings.
Guy has enjoyed an important headstart: His father, Colonel (Ret) Glenn B. Pusey II, was a Squadron Commander at the Delaware Air National Guard, where he served 30 years. Guy's sister, Glenna, is a student at the University of Delaware.
