Major Jose Martinez

Group 221 Commander

Civil Air Patrol



I began my Civil Air Patrol career in 2006 as a senior member in New York City with Phoenix Composite Squadron. After serving in several staff positions including Deputy Commander for Seniors with the squadron, I transferred to New York City Group to serve as their Finance Officer.


A change in employment responsibilities, led to my transferring to Jersey City Composite Squadron. I served in several staff positions with the squadron, ultimately serving as the Deputy Squadron Commander. With an opportunity to serve Civil Air Patrol on the next level, I transferred to Group 221 to serve as the Deputy Commander.


I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting from Rutgers University. I am a Licensed Tax Accountant and have worked in the Accounting Profession both with the corporate sector and public accounting firms ranging from sole proprietor firms up to and including the Big Four accounting firms.
