About the Commander

Greetings!  My name is Joseph Tousignant and I serve as the Commander of the Grand Forks Composite Squadron, holding the grade of 1st Lieutenant in Civil Air Patrol.  I would like to invite you to come and check out our squadron and what Civil Air Patrol is all about.  You will find that our squadron is a diverse and talented group of people dedicated to serving their community, state, and nation.

I have been a member of the Civil Air Patrol since April 2013 and have enjoyed my service thus far.  I assumed command in May 2017, having previously served the squadron as the Professional Development Officer.  I have worked extensively with the cadet program.  I have participated in several missions during my time in CAP.
