Bravo Zulu, also referred to as “BZ,” is a naval signal, typically conveyed by flag hoist or voice radio, meaning “Well Done”; it has also been used as part of vernacular slang within NATO and other Allied naval forces. – Wikipedia.
A BIG BZ to WOII Lavoie, FSgt Giansante, FSgt Lett & FSgt Zalepa for participating in our Town Council Delegation on Monday night. They certainly represented all that we aspire to in the Air Cadet Program: speaking with confidence, enthusiasm and a genuine love for everything they have accomplished in our Squadron.
Thank you for giving our Town Council a glimpse into what the Air Cadet Program can do for the Youth of NOTL!
