"We few, we happy, we band of brothers, for whoever sheds his blood with me shall be my brother."


Commander: C/Maj Adam Cucchiara

First Sergeant: C/MSgt Raquel Ayala

The lore of the spoons: Someone thought that "Cucchiara" (Sq CC’s name) means/meant "spoon" in Spanish (this is an unverified fact). This is also an obscure reference to the defunct, 16-episode only Saturday morning cartoon, "The Tick"- "Spoon" was the Tick’s battle cry. The squadron magically produced spoons at the daily motivation checks/ honor flight announcements. Of course, in response, Squadron 1 produced forks…
