Johnnie is a legend. I was lucky enough to be present when they sprung the honorary promotion to Col on her.

And anyone who knows Johnnie knows she didn't "take time" out of her night to acknowledge the cadets. She's spent 71 years in CAP because of the cadets.

Nice story, thanks for sharing.

The longest standing ovation I have ever seen.
