ANG 119TH CADET Squadron

The 119th ANG Cadet Squadron was formed in 1995 by Troy Krabbenhoft and a few other members of the Air National Guard.  The squadron grew faster than any could have imagined. 70+ cadets flocked to meetings before the squadron could even celebrate its fifth birthday. They were originally called the Flying Tigers, but were honored by the Air National Guard and allowed to use their name- The Happy Hooligans. The squadron members upheld the tradition of its name sake by taking home award after award at Wing Conferences, and by competing two years in a row at National Cadet Competition Drill Team. Members went to national and regional level events leaving the impression of the Hooligans where ever they went. One national level officer even announced "The Hooligans are back" as they entered the room for National Cadet Competition.
