Albany-- Two future airmen are one step closer to earning their wings.

14-year-old Jonathan DeMott and 16-year-old Jason Leitner have received the General Billy Mitchell Award.

As members of the Civil Air Patrol's Cadet Program, this prestigious honor will help them move up the Air Force ladder one day. DeMott says, "It means a lot to me because when I first joined the program there was a great lieutenant I saw and that was kind of the goal I set myself, I said one day I'm going to be a lieutenant. And this is kind of goal making."

The next goal for both teens: Completing the Cadet Program. After that, both want to enter the Air Force and become fighter pilots. Earning this award will actually give them an automatic promotion when they enter the Air Force.
