Preface
The following report outlines the activities, events, and occurrences in Missouri Wing over the
2014 year. 2014 saw the continued excellence of Missouri Wing. This year the Wing was able to
showcase its dedication to excellence in a myriad of ways. From wing wide activities to events
hosted by individual units, Missouri Wing members truly embodied the spirit of our Wing motto
“Show Me Excellence”. The record of events that follows highlights this in a number of ways.
Not only has Missouri Wing been able to maintain its outstanding programs that it has offered
for years, it has expanded and grown as new opportunities become available. This growth and
these new opportunities would not have been possible without the countless individual members
that make Civil Air Patrol function. From seasoned squadron and cadet commanders to new
airmen and seniors, every member in this Wing has contributed to the excellent year our state
enjoyed in 2014. It is my hope that with the publishing of this document, their successes and
innovations in Civil Air Patrol can be highlighted as the truly excellent examples of service to
our nation that they are.

NARRATIVE
CHAPTER I - INTRODUCTION
Missouri Wing had an outstanding 2014. This year saw new advancements in Cadet Programs,
Aerospace Education, and Emergency Services. There were also a number of successful Wing,
group, and unit activities. These advancements were accomplished through the hard work and
effort of members throughout the Wing. All over the state members developed and participated
in new programs and activities, improving the capabilities of the Wing and its members. The
following report attempts to capture several of these key developments while highlighting new
and outstanding occurrences. This report also includes the narratives and chronological histories
submitted by the local units for 2014. These reports capture the key events the squadrons held as
well as highlighting their contributions to the Wing-wide programs.

CHAPTER II-EMERGENCY SERVICES
INTRODUCTION
Emergency Services in Missouri has undergone several developments over the last year. 2014
also saw the reintroduction of the Pathfinders Technical School, an activity that Missouri Wing
had once hosted as a Civil Air Patrol National Activity.

Training
Missouri Wing developed a new state-wide training regimen for the Wing. This development
was enacted to make the best use of Wing level resources while offering the most training
opportunities possible for members. The new system was a quarterly training regimen. Each
quarter, one moth would be dedicated to squadron level training, in the next month the groups
would host a training mission, and in the final month a Wing-wide exercise would be held.

Pathfinders Technical School
2014 saw the return of the Missouri Wing Pathfinders Technical School. Led by Captain Alan
Altis and held in conjunction with the Missouri Wing Summer Encampment, this event opened
up a new training opportunity to Missouri Wing Members. This event was held at Fort Leonard
Wood, Missouri from June 28 to July 5. During this event cadets were able to further develop
their emergency service capabilities in order to be “of service to their community, state, and
nation”. The following quote is the background and history of the Missouri Wing Pathfinder
Program.
“Lt Colonel John Woods, CAP, a long time member of Civil Air Patrol came up with the
idea of hosting a emergency services school in Missouri during the late 1970s and 1980s.
7 of 61

Missouri Wing Civil Air Patrol

LTC Woods held the early Pathfinder courses at the Sedalia, MO emergency operations
center. It wasn’t long before the school’s notoriety and reputation grew and CAP
members from throughout the country were attending the courses. Major Danny Mallow
was the Chief of Training during much of the 1980s. Major Mallow provided survival
and advanced search and rescue training. As the school grew quickly the facilities were
rapidly becoming too small. After the class of 1982 was held, the course moved to Ft
Leonard Wood in the Missouri Ozarks. The US Army installation offered a wide range of
opportunities for the school which was held the first time in the summer of 1983. Due to
other responsibilities, Maj Mallow and other staff members were unable to continue with
the school. LTC Woods recruited a staff that included Majors Erma Kinsley, Jeanette
Rockey (Lawson), Scott Lawson, Ricky Mathews and a cadet staff to assist with the
training. The new staff and location met with the challenges and returned the next year to
Ft Wood with additional staff. After several years of running the school, LTC Woods
stepped aside to have Maj Scott Lawson take over. Maj Lawson then ran the school at
both FT Leonard Wood and other locations throughout Missouri until the early 2000’s.
The then LTC retired the program. In 2013 a group of Civil Air Patrol officers led by Maj
John Burrows and Capt Alan Altis, began work to reintroduce the program under the
authority of the Missouri Wing Headquarters. The first class was to be held back at Ft
Leonard Wood in the summer of 2014 with a renewed curriculum. Throughout the years
the Pathfinder Technical School was praised with providing high quality emergency
services training. Members from nearly every wing attended at some point in time.
Many of these members are still in CAP today. Several used the spark of interest gained
at the school to become professional emergency services workers.”1
The 2014 Pathfinder Technical School culminated in a three day field exercise in Paddy Creek
Wilderness in Missouri. The 2014 graduating class was composed of 11 cadets from Missouri
and Oklahoma Wings. This activity is currently planned to be held again in 2015.

Missouri Wing Graded Search and Rescue Evaluation
On May 17, 2014 Missouri Wing participated in a state-wide search and rescue exercise
(SAREX) evaluation. The main mission base was located at the Jefferson City Memorial Airport
in Jefferson City, Missouri. The mission tested the Emergency Service capabilities of the wing
and simulated a potential mission Missouri Wing could be tasked with2. Missouri Wing passed
the evaluation thanks to its well trained and experienced members.

CHAPTER III-AEROSPACE EDUCATION
Introduction
2014 was an outstanding year for Missouri Wing Aerospace Education. In 2014 Wing Aerospace
Education, led by Lt. Col Bill Sander, developed the Aerospace STEM Academy (ASA). This
academy was developed out of the Model Rocketry Symposium held in 20133.

Aerospace STEM Academy
The ASA developed out of the Wing-wide model rocketry program, which itself developed out
of the Group III model rocketry program. Developed by Lt. Col Bill Sander and supported by
both cadet and senior staff members, this activity has gone on to be one of the most successful
wing level activities in recent history. This program was developed to offer a venue for members
interested in learning about aerospace education and have the resources and support to perform
STEM kit activities. Originally developed to support local units with the Civil Air Patrol model
rocketry program, the ASA has become the setting for training in multiple other aerospace
education fields. The ASA strives to introduce cadets to the science, technology, engineering,
and math involved in aerospace related projects. Initially focusing on model rocketry and remote
controlled aircraft, the ASA has expanded and now offers classes in astronomy, robotics, and
flight simulation. The ASA has also developed its curriculum in a way to support drug demand
reduction classes as well as offering an opportunity for cadets to accomplish their orientation
flights. These academies earned the Missouri Wing Aerospace Education directorate a
“Commendable” rating during the 2014 Missouri Wing Compliance Inspection.

Group II HQ

Maj. Steve Aubuchon

NARRITIVE
INTRODUCTION
This was a busy year for Group 2. We added three squadrons (making a total of 11), changed
commanders in 5 squadrons, hosted a SAREX, participated in the wing guided SAREX,
supported several major community events, provided assistance at the wing conference, saved
the life of a lost motorist, and saw many of our cadets and senior members advance in grade and
training.

GOALS
The goals for Group 2 were established for, the Group in General, the Group Staff, the
Squadrons, Senior Members, and for the Cadets
Goals for each of these categories were establish for foster development in each of the three CAP
missions as well as service to the Wing. Although not all goals were met, the set goals provided
targets to focus and coordinate constant efforts towards achieving excellence.

ACTIVITES
One of the goals of Group 2 was to increase interaction with neighboring Groups, and Wings.
To this end, some cadets from Group 2 attended encampments of the Kansas and Illinois wings,
while we also sent a number of participants to a SAREX hosted by GLR - ILWG Group One.
April saw Aviation Day in Jeff City. Lt Chilenski arranged a tour and chambers seating. CAP
received proclamations from both the house and senate. A large number of the CAP contingent
was from Group 2. Also in April, Grp2 hosted a SAREX. There were 24 participants from five
squadrons. Training included GT3, MO, MS, AP. In May, the St Louis County Air Show was
produced at Spirit of St. Louis Airport to celebrate their 50th Anniversary. The two day event,
which attracted an audience of 75,000 each day, featured performances by the U.S Navy Blue
Angles aero demonstration team. This was an opportunity for CAP to display the C182-G1000.
Group 2 also supervised a total of nine squadrons (including two from ILWG and one from
MOWG Group 5) that sold programs and assisted parking. May also saw a visit from Mr. Pernell
Glover, USAF, Director of Logistics, CAP-USAF NCLR to: MO-032, MO-005, MO-111 for and
inventory audit. Each squadron did very well.
In June, thanks to Capt Steve Vogt, MO 114, Group 2 finally initiated a web site. During June
and early July, Group 2 senior members volunteered for staff positions at the 2014 Missouri
Wing Encampment. The encampment commandant, safety officer, and all of the tactical officer

During the October Wing Conference, members of Group 2 were conspicuous volunteers.
Members stepping forward were Major Steve Aubuchon, Project Officer; Capt Clay Sakabu,
Breakout Sessions Coordinator; Capt Jim Current, Facilities Coordinator; and MSgt Bob Miller,
Registration Coordinator. Group 2 also provided presenters for many of the break out session.
In December, Group 2 squadrons supported Wreaths Across America ceremonies at Jefferson
Barracks, Cape Girardeau, Hannibal, and Wentzville cemeteries for veterans. In early November
volunteers from Group 2 supplied a Color Guard that supported the Veteran’s Day ceremony
during the National Convocation of the Church of God in Christ, which was held in St. Louis.
During FY 2014, Group 2 increased the number of cadet orientation flights by 5%. Additionally,
pilots from Group 2 were called to support cadet orientation flights in other groups as well.

St. Charles Composite Squadron

Capt. Clay Sakabu

NARRATIVE
INTRODUCTION
St. Charles Composite Squadron continues to meet at Christian High School in O’Fallon,
Missouri. The unit meets every Monday from 6:30 P.M. to 8:30 P.M. The Unit Commander for
2014 was Captain Clay Sakabu. The Unit Cadet Commander was Cadet 1st Lieutenant Regan
Schmidt.
2014 ACTIVITIES
2014 was an exciting year for Saint Charles Composite Squadron. The unit took second place at
the Missouri Wing Cadet Competition, with the team led by Sergeant Brooke Maynard. The unit
also had several members attend the 2014 Missouri Wing Encampment at Ft. Leonard Wood,
Missouri. Cadet Airman Maynard was a basic attendee of encampment. Captain Clay Sakabu
and Captain Adam Daubach served as Senior Member staff at encampment. Cadet Sergeant
Brooke Maynard served as a member of the cadet staff at encampment.
One of the key events in 2014 was hosting a group wide Color Guard Academy. The unit drew
on members from throughout group II to staff this event, but the main portion of the training was
administered by cadets from St. Charles. This academy was designed to prepare both cadets and
senior members for participation in the color guard program. This event held both practical color
guard training for cadets and discussion on what to expect in competition for the cadet officers
and senior members. The unit hopes to hold another color guard academy open to the entire wing
in the near future.

Northeast Missouri Composite Squadron

Capt. Jim Current

NARRATIVE
2014 proved to be an excellent year for the squadron. Growth in the cadet program was a
particular success, and squadron management improved as our senior duty officers became more
experienced in their roles. Our squadron began 2014 with 7 cadets and 8 senior members. By the
end of 2014, the number of cadets increased to 12, with senior members remaining steady at 8.
Although we lost three cadets during 2014, we brought in 7 new cadets. Our weekly meetings
were held at the Hannibal Regional Airport. Meeting times were typically from 1830 hours to
2030 hours. We started the year meeting every Tuesday, but switched to Mondays starting
September 8th, in order to accommodate the college schedule of Lieutenants Austin and Clayton
Smith. Emphasis in 2014 was placed on aerospace education, STEM, emergency services
training, and mentoring cadet rank progression.

Group III HQ

Lt. Col Bill Sander

Narrative
INTRODUCTION
2014 was another highly successful year for Group 3 Headquarters, Missouri Wing. Lt Col
Sander’s developed goals and a plan of action to improve Group interaction with subordinate
units: MO-009 (Sedalia Cadet Squadron, Sedalia, MO), MO-018 (Central Missouri Composite
Squadron, Columbia, MO), MO-117 (Saline County Composite Squadron, Marshall, MO), MO158 (Morgan County Flight, Versailles, MO), MO-119 (119th East Central Composite Squadron,
Cuba, MO); while also experiencing growth with chartering MO-160 (Lake Ozark Regional
Composite Squadron, Eldon, MO) by combining the Morgan County Flight with Group V’s MO148 (Lake of the Ozarks Composite Squadron, Osage Beach, MO and the project to reactivate
MO-136 (Red Tail – Warrensburg Senior Squadron, Warrensburg, MO (Formerly Vanguard
Composite Squadron). With the support of a developing Group staff, Group 3 met most of its
goals to provide several exciting events and activities for its members, participating actively
throughout Missouri Wing.
2014 GOALS
First, a robust Emergency Services (ES) Program. ES is a broad mission and our involvement is
ever changing. We're making effort to play well with others and it's paying off. This will be
accomplished by conducting SAREX’s, COMEX’s, and participation in Wing Exercises,
Missions, and community activities. Second, we must continue to cradle the AE program. AEX
is a great tool for the Cadet Program. Field trips and Model Rocketry Symposiums are awesome.
An Orientation Flight Day is also on tap in the very near future. Third, I envision a "Curry"
weekend where new cadets can come and earn all of the required tasks for their curry award. On
day two we remediate those who quite didn't make it on day one and we introduce them to the
ES mission with GES, ICS 100, and an ICUT class; and if time/weather/and availability of
Aircraft allow - Orientation Flights. These are first steps which can easily broaden once we get a
good cadre of trainers and volunteers developed in Cadet NCO, SNCO, CGO, and FGO courses,
symposiums, etc. Fourth, to go along with cadet development, I firmly believe in Senior Member
development, too. SLS's/CLC's/UCC's/etc. have already benched marked as the Group 3 Change
of Command immediately precedes a CLC and UCC graduation. Also, mirroring the "Curry"
weekend, conducting a lateral "Foundations" weekend is also plausible if there's a need. All of
these goals are obtainable and are proven successes in my past. You'll find that I make every
effort to bring my goals and expectations to fruition. Yes, some of the successes I've had in the
past may flop here and then again something that had mediocre results may now be a new bench
mark success if we re-implement. Let's work together and I give you my word that Group 3 will
20 of 61

make MO Wing, NCR, and CAP proud!
GOAL RESULTS
I am pleased to state that all of the aforementioned goals were exceeded except for the “Curry”
weekend. Other activities conducted took precedence, but we plan to double our efforts to make
it come to fruition in 2015.
GROUP ACTIVITIES
In support of the Emergency Services Mission, Group 3 conducted 3 Search and Rescue training
Exercises (SAREX), 1 Communications Exercise (COMEX), and hosted the MO Wing –
CAPUSAF- Graded SAR/DR/HS Exercise, Jefferson City, MO; and support of 1 community Air
Show. Group 3 staff also participated in SEMA’s Logistics Supply/Support Area’s (LSA)
training as well as webEOC training. All of this training culminating in participating in three
actual AFRCC Missions! In support of the Aerospace Education Mission, Group 3 provided
support for the Missouri Wing’s quarterly Aerospace STEM Academies that evolved from Group
3’s Model Rocketry Symposiums, received 3 STEM kits, participated in the AEX Program, and
provided school age program activities during the . Salute to Veterans Airshow, held in
Columbia, MO. Furthermore, we worked with area EAA Young Eagles activities and our
Operations Officer, Lt Col Ted Forester, has provided Flight Training to 3 cadets and
participated in the NCR Powered Flight Academy in Fremont, NE as a CFI. In support of the
Cadet Programs Mission, Group 3 concentrated local efforts on bolstering professional
development of Cadet Programs Officers and Commanders by conducting 2 Training Leaders of
Cadets (TLC) courses. We also sponsored a Cadet Leadership Academy in Columbia and
fostered the Cadet Leadership School in Springfield, MO. Furthermore, several cadets and
Senior members attended Encampment as attendees and staff. In support of Professional
Development, Group 3 conducted a Squadron Leadership School, a Unit Commanders Course,
and a Corporate Learning Course.
ACCOLADES
Several Group 3 members were recognized for their accomplishments in 2014. Most notably, the
following received Wing Level Awards: Capt Martin Alderman, Safety Officer of the Year;
Cadet Capt Caleb Couture, Frank G. Brewer Memorial Aerospace award, and Lt Col Sander
received the Wing AEO of the Year and Senior Member Lifetime Achievement Award.
Additionally, the following members were Group Level Award Winners and Nominees for Wing
level awards; Maj W. DiMarsico, Communications Officer of the Year. Furthermore, the
following Cadets received the following awards: AFA Cadet of Year, Cadet MSgt Andrew Sites;
AFSA NCO of Year, C/CMSgt Lauren MCcomb; VFW NCO of Year, C/MSgt Alex Young. Lt
Lucy Brandon received the AMVET’S White Clover Award for her humanitarian efforts and Lt

Wentzville Composite Squadron

MSgt Robert Miller

NARRATIVE
INTRODUCTION

The Wentzville Composite squadron meets at the Living Lord Lutheran Church (LLLC) in Lake
St Louis MO., at 1830, every Monday. We have had a member reduction during 2014, caused
mostly by low to non-existent participation and subsequent transfers to “Ghost” squadron.
However, we finished the year with 21 active members; 15 Cadets and 6 Senior Members.
SQUADRON ACTIVITIES
The Wentzville Composite Squadron was busy with participation in multiple activities during
2014. Highlighted among our activities were events that enhanced cadet experiences with flight
operations. Including a visit to the St. Louis TRACON (Terminal Radar Approach Control
Facilities), a visit to Helisat Helicopters in Moscow Mills, multiple O-Rides, and Flight simulator
use at Flight safety in St. Louis. Additionally, we took tours of Whiteman AFB and The
National Airline History Museum in Kansas City had an opportunity to get Hot Air Balloon
tethered rides. Emergency Services training and activities were a big part of our focus during
2014. We held several training sessions in Wentzville and participated in several other events
held in other cities and with other groups.
In addition to flight related and emergency services events, we performed some community
service activities, Color Guard duties for the St. Charles Chill Hockey game and served Lenten
dinners at LLLC. We presents Colors, did a Historical Flag presentation, and Flag Folding
demonstration at Heritage Elementary School in Wentzville. The Squadron sold 228 wreaths and
helped place them, and many others, at Wentzville cemeteries for Wreaths Across America Day
in December.
The Wentzville Composite Squadron had 6 Cadets graduate from the Missouri Wing Summer
Encampment, and 2 Cadets serve on Encampment staff, at Fort Leonard Wood. Senior Members
were active participants with the above activities and several other training and Emergency
service activities.

NCR-MO-117

Saline County Composite Squadron

1st Lt. Lucy Brandon

NARRATIVE
INTRODUCTION
2014 was a busy time for the Saline Co. Composite Squadron, there were many things going on
during the year that were accomplished or worked on with the cadets.
SALINE CO. COMPOSITE SQUADRON ORIGIN
The Saline Co. Composite Squadron was established and placed under the Command of 1st Lt
Jean E. Harms, who is still a very active member of the MO-117. With 10 cadets and 5 senior
members the 117 became an active squadron and has had 6 go on to receive the Spaatz Award.
The MO 117 is the only squadron to have a Father and Daughter, Emmit and Erica Williams,
appointed to be the State Wing Commanders.
SQUADRON ORAGANIZATION AND STATUS
The Saline Co. Composite Squadron meets at the Marshall Municipal Airport on Saturday
mornings from 09:00-11:30am.At the present time there are 17 cadets and 7 senior members.
SQUADRON ACTIVITIES
Senior Capt. Nathan Madrano calls the meeting to order at 09:00 and discusses what is planned
for the morning. We had one cadet attend Missouri Wing Summer Encampment, June 28- July 5,
at Fort Leonard Wood, MO.
On August 16 -17 a SAREX was held at the Marshall Municipal Airport, several squadrons were
represented and worked hard on what they were assigned to do, no matter they did it with
enthusiasm and listened to what the Senior Members were saying to them. Since the 117 was
hosting it, they asked several businesses for donations of food, drinks of water and soda, we had
monetary gifts for items that we needed to buy such as paper plates, plastic silver ware, napkins,
cups, etc. tables and chairs were set up and one of the cadets had borrowed a large bar-b-cue grill
from his school and did the cooking with the help of several senior members. It turned out to be
a “large picnic” with a lot of socialization going on between the squadrons. After it was over
every one helped clean up the areas. With the help of Maj. Bill Vardiman, he and 1Lt. Brandon,
on Friday, August 15, went and collected all of the donations, 1st Lt, Commander Art Madden
sent out “thank yous’” to all of the donors.
On December 13 Lt Col. Bill Sander, Commander of Group 3, had a Christmas banquet for all
Group3, Cadets, Senior Members, Families, and Friends, in Jefferson City, approximately 84
were in attendance. Tonya McCabe, senior member was in charge of preparing the delicious
meal. Before and after the meal, much socialization went on, after the meal, host Lt. Col. Sander
gave out several awards to cadets and senior members for accomplishments that they had made
in 2014. There were many door prizes that were given out. All in all it was a wonderful and
enjoyable evening for everyone involved in Group 3. Thank you, Lt. Col. Sander.

Trail Of Tear’s Composite Squadron

Capt. Jason Williams

Narrative
Goals
At the beginning of 2014 the Squadron had hoped to achieve substantial growth, however ended
up with five less members at the end of the year. In addition to the regular attrition, we also
moved inactive members from the Squadron roster to the "administrative" Squadron to be in
better compliance with Air Force regulations. We did not meet our recruiting or retention goals
for 2014.
Activities
On the whole, the Squadron activities were adequate, and we exceeded our expectations in
Aerospace Education, earning a Squadron AEX award for the first time in many years. Members
did participate in a wide variety of activities and we conducted more ES training at home than in
recent previous years. We did not however conduct as much training as we would have liked.
The Squadron's ties to other CAP units continue to grow, resulting in more inter-unit cooperation
and better opportunities for the members. The Squadron's transfer from Group II to Group IV has
been a tremendous advantage to us in that respect. Two cadets attended the Missouri Wing
encampment's Staff Development School this past summer, preparing them for more responsible
leadership roles in CAP.
The Unit recruited a Chaplain, Father, Captain John Harth, Pastor of the Immaculate Conception
Church in Jackson, Missouri. Father Harth has conducted numerous Character Development
forums with the Cadets and has brought a great deal to the Unit in the process. The unit also
recruited a former member to serve as a Health Services Officer, RN, Captain Jason Williams.
With the addition of Captain Williams the squadron now has the ability to receive CPR and First
Aid Certification at the local squadron level which greatly helps with be prepared for ES
operations.
Awards
One other significant event was the standardization of Cadet Award criteria into a mostly
objective matrix, and an awards committee was formed. No cadet awards were given for an
unknown period of time prior to the end of 2014.
At the end of 2014, Cadet A1C Aric Johnson was selected as the Air Force Association's
Squadron Cadet of the year, and C/CMSgt. Wyatt Willis was selected as the Air Force Sergeants
Association's Squadron Cadet NCO of the year. Awards were based upon a matrix that included;
attendance at Squadron meetings, participation in CAP activities outside of regular Squadron
meetings, rate of advancement through the Cadet Program, and other CAP achievements by
cadets (such as earning an emergency services rating etc.). The cadet's attitude and conformity
26 of 61

Missouri Wing Civil Air Patrol

to the leadership expectations in the Cadet Program were also used in making the final
determination of awards.
This year the squadron also conducted what has been reported as its first ever "dining in", This
event was a military style formal Unit meal at the end of 2014. Ltc. Virgil Green was honored for
his 25 years of service to CAP, and the event was widely reported to have been a fun and
meaningful experience.

Group V Headquarters Squadron

Maj Jeffrey Cunningham

NARRATIVE
INTRODUCTION
MO-135 is the headquarters squadron for Group V, which encompasses all of southwest
Missouri. Besides MO-135, there are six other squadrons that comprise Group V. They are:
Springfield Regional Composite Squadron, MO-070. Capt Randy Clevenger, commander.
Col Travis Hoover Composite Squadron, MO-143 at Joplin, Capt Perry Workman, commander.
Table Rock Lake Composite Squadron, MO-147at Branson West, Maj Thomas Martin,
commander.
Lake Ozark Composite Squadron, MO-148 at Osage Beach, Capt Rick Arnall, commander.
Ft Leonard Wood Composite Squadron, MO-153, Capt Mark Ed Tenes, commander.
Laclede Co. Composite Squadron, MO-155 at Lebanon, Capt Scott Murrell, commander.
GROUP V ORGANIZATION AND STATUS
Maj Jeffrey Cunningham is the commander of Group V after assuming command from the
outgoing commander, Maj Eric Dean, on 26 August 2013. Lt Col Lisa Tuggle is the Deputy
Commander of Group V, after transferring from the California Wing and briefly at MO-143 in
Joplin. The Deputy Commander position had been vacant since the death of Lt Col Garland
Henson in April after a long illness resulting from a traffic accident that occurred in 2013. Maj
Raun Hamilton was the Group Communications Officer, as well as the MOWG Director of
Communications. Capt Ernest Trumbly, of Joplin, was the Aerospace Education Officer, and
Capt Jered Horn, also from Joplin, was the Public Affairs Officer. Tom Martin of Branson West
was both the Emergency Services Officer, as well as the Emergency Services Training Officer.
Maj Quay Kendrick, of Springfield, was the Operations Officer, while Maj David Ellis, of
Branson West, served as Professional Development Officer as well as Administration and
Personnel Officer. Maj David Sewell, of Lebanon, served as Finance Officer, and Major Lanna
Fletcher served as Information Technology Officer.
GROUP V ACTIVITIES
With Group V being the home of six squadrons, besides the HQ squadron MO-135, there were
many activities throughout the year. This narrative will focus on those activities that are
exclusive to Group V, which many times are hosted by an individual squadron. The first is the
annual Cadet Leadership School in February, which is hosted by MO-070, and is actually a
MOWG event, where cadets travel from all over the state to increase their leadership skills and
prep for the summer encampment. Then in April a marksmanship class, also hosted by
Springfield MO-070, was held at the Andy Dalton Shooting Range in Bois D’Arc. This event
was well attended from several squadrons in the Group. In June, a Corporate Learning Course
was held at the Springfield Airport, which several squadrons attended. Also in June, Group V
28 of 61

Missouri Wing Civil Air Patrol

held ground team training and bivouac on Capt Mike Cooper’s property near Cape Fair, which
was attended by Springfield and Branson West Squadrons. In August, there was an Airborne
Photography Course which was held at the Springfield Airport, and was attended by squadrons
in Branson West, Springfield, and Lebanon. Also in August, there was a Squadron Leadership
School, which was well attended by members of the Springfield, Joplin, and Branson West
squadrons at the Springfield Airport. In September, the 2nd annual Cardboard Boat Race was
held at Table Rock Lake, hosted by the Table Rock Lake Squadron. Rounding out the year was
Wreaths Across America which was observed by MO-070 at the Springfield National Cemetery;
MO-147 at the Missouri Veterans Cemetery; with MO-143, MO-153, and MO-155 observing the
day at their local cemeteries. Added to this, the various STEM Academies hosted by MO-153 at
Ft Leonard Wood, and it shows how Group V had a busy year full of activities.
TRANSITIONS
Early in January, Table Rock Lake Composite Squadron (MO-147) had their Change of
Command ceremony, where Major Tom Martin assumed command from Maj Chuck Stone. The
official change of command actually took place in December, 2013. Also, in January the Ft
Leonard Wood Squadron (MO-153) had a change of command from Lt Col John O’Neill to Capt
Ed Tennes. Lake of the Ozarks Composite Squadron (MO-148) combined with the Morgan
County Flight of Group 3 and became the Lake Ozark Regional Composite Squadron (MO-160).
MO-148 was officially closed in December.
AWARDS
In August, Springfield Regional Composite Squadron (MO-070) traveled up to Iowa to take part
in the North Central Regional Color Guard Competition, and came back with a 2nd place finish!
During Wing Conference, Group V was awarded $250 (for their professional development
program) for having the most members of any Group to attend the Wing Conference. But, the big
award at the Wing Conference went to the Springfield Squadron for being named Composite
Squadron of the Year!
CONCLUSION
It’s been a banner year for the squadrons of Group V: full of activities, accomplishments, and
achievements. With 2015 starting up, many more great things are in the works, so here’s to
another great year for Group V!

Platte Valley Composite Squadron

Capt. Kevin Oliver

NARRATIVE
INTRODUCTION
The Platte Valley Composite Squadron had a very exciting 2014. Although we had some
turnover in membership, our numbers did a great job of maintaining, and we were able to
continue the high quality training and professionalism we strive for.
Squadron Activities
The squadron is a very active squadron for both seniors and cadets. In addition to winning the
“Quality Cadet Unit” award, we have held several senior classes and classes for cadets, including
Great Start and Emergency Services classes. One of the big events our squadron does on an
annual basis is going to the Tucker Leadership Lab. This is a High Adventure course that helps
teach participants not only leadership skills through teamwork, but also teaches those “born
leaders” followership. The highlight of the event is being able to work on the high ropes course
about 45 feet over the ground! This year, we teamed up with Group 1 and started a “Leadership
Bivouac”, held at the National Airline History Museum and had about 35 cadets and 5 senior
members that participated. The highlight for most was the Tucker Leadership Lab.
Our squadron, with the help of our Booster Club, puts on a Dining Out event every year where
multiple awards are presented to both cadets and senior. The event was held at the Airline
History Museum, which was a great event location, with all the planes in the building. The main
speaker for the event was Lt. Col Bradly Cochran, USAF, a B2 pilot from Whiteman. In
addition, we had other military personnel present, including Maj. Joseph Monaco, USAF, from
the Command College at Ft. Leavenworth, KS. Maj. Dave Futch, CAP was President of the
Mess, with Lt Frank Kruse, CAP acting as Mr. Vice. Mo Wing Commander Col. Erica
Williams, CAP also graced the event with her presence.
Over the summer, we had many cadets participate in a firearms instruction course with the
Missouri Department of Conservation, for 2 weeks of training and live firing of .22 caliber rifles.
The entire squadron all rolled up our sleeves in the fall, and did a major renovation of the
meeting space we use at the local VFW Post. We tore out 3000 sq feet of old carpet, cleaned and
painted the floors, as well as the walls, and put up 3 large “Fathead” stickers of for the USAF,
CAP and our local squadron. We were able to show off the newly remodeled space as we hosted
Regional Commander Col Robert Todd, to present several promotions, including promoting
Cadet Matt Robbins to Cadet Lt. Colonel. (See Photo)
Of course we still had several cadets attend summer or winter encampment, as well as numerous
NCSA’s, NESA and Pathfinders.
Future
Platte Valley plans to continue to charge into the future, with many classes for both cadets and
seniors, and take a more active part of Group 1 command staff and activities.

Laclede County Composite Squadron

Capt. Scott Murrell

NARRATIVE
In 2014 MO 155, the Laclede County Composite Squadron, consisted of 9 Cadets and 13 senior
members. Commander and staff positions were as follows:
Commander: Captain Scott Murrell
Deputy Commander for Cadets: 2nd Lt. Alex Miller

MO 155 met at the Mo. National Guard Armory on Fremont Street in Lebanon and hangered its
assigned aircraft at the Lebanon Airport. City of Lebanon donated the hanger at no cost and the
Mo National Guard allowed use of its armory at no cost. There was some speculation on the part
of the City of Lebanon that the old airport terminal building might be renovated in the future and
this might be an excellent meeting place/office for MO 155.
MO 155 also participated in Mo. Wing and Group V Training Exercises as well as conducting its
own training exercises. Some of these included the Group V aerial photography class/exercise:
Provided aircraft and pilot for exercise as well as 5 class attendees, the Wing Level SAREX at
Jefferson City Mo. MO 155 also participated in the Missouri Wing Search and Rescue Exercises
in the summer, fielding one aircraft and aircrew for several sorties, providing the CAP van
assigned to Lebanon, and several cadets and seniors for ground crew members. Mo 155
conducted a camp out for its Cadets combined with a ground and aerial ELT search in
September. MO 155 participated in Cyber Patriot for the first time beginning in the fall of 2014
