Col. Ann Brechbühl, the new commander of Vermont’s Civil Air Patrol, would love to spark youth interest in aviation.
Vermont’s role in the Civil Air Patrol is primarily involved in search and rescue and disaster relief missions. Brechbühl wants to extend this role to promoting aerospace education and the cadet program.
She graduated from West Point and was involved with Army intelligence for six years, and she joined the Civil Air Patrol in 2010. She has held the position of senior director of recruitment and leadership at Norwich University since 2016.
