NARRATIVE
INTRODUCTION
The Rocky Mountain Region completed its 61st year of service to the people of the
United States of America. As the year ended command and decision rested with
the Region's 22nd Commander, Colonel Robert M. Bost, CAP.

ROCKY MOUNTAIN REGION ORIGIN
The Rocky Mountain Region was established and placed under the Command of
Colonel Thomas E. Knight in May 1954.

REGION ORGANIZATION AND STATUS
The Rocky Mountain Region is organized into a Region Headquarters which is
located at 1867 Indian Hills Lane, Layton, Utah 84040. There are two Vice
Commanders. The Region has five Wings that include Colorado, Wyoming, Utah,
Montana and Idaho with their various Groups and Squadrons.

The Rocky Mountain Region completed the year 2014 with very much to be proud
of concerning all aspects of operations. Examples of this were successful training
exercises held in the various Wings which included SAREX's, Mountain Flying
Clinics, Aerospace Education Symposiums, Wing Encampments, Check Pilot
Courses, and Schools, Region Staff College, Aircrew Training and the individual
Wing Conferences. All of these successful events conducted by the individual
Wings proved the Rocky Mountain Region is steadily moving forward in its quest
for total professionalism. The Region will continue to work towards being the
number one Region in the nation.

Commander's Corner
From : Valkyrie Cadet Squadron

Integrity First
We live at a time when the personal commitment to honesty has fallen on hard times. The first
decade of the 21st CentmT has witnessed numerous examples ofhishly visible, influential
business leaders and pofifi¢ians disgraced by the fi3fits of their dishonesty. Typically, the results
are disgrace, loss financially and in relationships and frequently criminal consequ~.
Too often the testimony ofthose disgraced is that dishonesty first started with small, seemingly
inconsequential shortcomings. So called "little white lies," lying to get out of a jam or smooth
over a problem, etc. can create a pattern of behavior that excuses and then justifies dishonesty
when convenient or beneficial.
The well known TV rogue, J. R. Ewing of Dallas fame, (if you remember the Dallas story) once
said, "Once you get past the ethics, the rest is easy." Ofcom~e, "the rest" that he's speaking about
is outright dishonest practices.
The Civil Air Patrol Valkyrie Cadet Squadron is committed to the core value of "integrity first"
in all of its dealings with cadets, senior ~ and others that come in contact with the
Squadron. If you learn to do the right thing when the stakes are small, you will be prepared to do
the right then when the stakes are big.
Lt.Col. Thorn Scheffel

COWG PAO TRAINING ACADEMY COVERED ALL
BASES
21 November 2015

COWG PAO Academy was held last Saturday, 21NOV at the South Metro
Fire Rescue HQ Bldg and 35 senior member and cadet attendees
representing 20 COWG units and one UTWG Squadron received training
on all critical aspects of Civil Air Patrol Public Affairs and more. Poor
weather the evening before the Academy precluded a number of those
registered from attending and as a result a decision was made to offer the
training via conference call and on-line, in addition, thanks to C/2ndLt Noah
Parker of the Vance Brand Cadet Squadron, a video of the sessions was
filmed and when edited will be placed on the COWG YouTube site. Many
participants elected to pre-order this year's black PAO Academy polo shirts.
Former KMGH News 7 TV Reporter Ronda Scholting who is now the PIO
for the West Metro Fire Rescue was the featured speaker on working with
the media. Those COWG squadrons who were not represented and did not
participate in any way will need to contact their respective Group PAO for
the valuable info that was imparted. Photo by Lt Col Mike Daniels, PAO
Academy Director

CAP holds change of command ceremony
9Dec. 2015
BY: Amanda Fry

WHEATLAND - Last Tuesday, the Civil Air Patrol Capt. Michael S. Walker Memorial
Composite Squadron held a changing of command ceremony, and honored outgoing commander
Lt. Col. Dennis Comell.
The Wyoming Wing Chief of Staff, Lt. Col. Susan McDonald, said that CAP commanders are
typically assigned to their post for four years, per CAP regulations. However, this recent change
of command was necessitated by Cornell's relocation to South Dakota.
ComeU has served as unit commander for the Squadron since 2012. He said his favorite part of
his role as Commander has been seeing the cadets in the program succeed and be exposed to
CAP culture.
"A lot of the kids decide to go forward into the military," Comell said, adding that as cadets rank
up in the CAP program, they can begin thdr military career at a higher rank upon completing
boot camp.
Additionally, cadets are given opportunities from scholarships, to acceptance into military
schools.
For cadets who choose not to enter the military, the rankings and awards given through the
program can help in employment oppommities, as well as other future endeavors.
54

"It o~ns a lot of doors," he said.
Comell said that he has seen the values learned by the cadets help with family situations. He said
the discipline in the program teaches the cadets respect for adults, family, and friends.
Taking over as unit commander is Major Jim Hawley. Hawley has been involved in CAP for the
past 10 years.
"I plan on getting senior members more involved, and increasing training for cadets, as well as
continued aerospace education."
Hawley also stressed the importance of increasing public awareness for the program.
The CAP program offers several opportunities for youth participants, added McDonald.
Robotics, cyber security, and flight training are just a few of the programs cadets participate in.
The program is open to youth ages 12-18. The cadets are expected to meet ac~emic
requirements in order to remain involved in the program.

Job well done by Casper's 492nd
Emerl ency Services Squadron
12 February 2015
In their Air Force Auxiliary role, the Civil Air Patrol
performs about 85 percent of continental U.S. inland
search and rescue missions as tasked by the Air Force
Rescue Coordination Center. Here is just another
testament to the awesome job CAP does supporting our
mission. Yesterday, the AFRCC supported local
authorities in the search for a missing couple in Worland,
WY. After failing to show up at work two days in a row,
concerned friends and co-workers contacted the
authorities. Wyoming CAP launched a light aircraft to aid
in the search. Spotting one individual near their vehicle
CAP airdropped food, water and a hand-signal guide. She
was able to direct CAP to the other missing person
approximately 12 miles away. Both individuals were
picked up by ground teams and transported to safety.
What an amazing job by CAP and all rescuers involved! 2SAVES

Local Cadets participate in CyberPatriot
competition 26 August '2015

Patrol participate in training on Thursday. THe
group will compete in the CyberPatriot
Defense Competition in October and
November. Clockwise, fi-om left: Cadet
Christian Moody, Cadet Rhett Karr, instructor

WHEATLAND - Cadets in the Civil Air Patrol Capt. Michael S Walker Memorial Composite
Squadron in Wheatland are getting a hands-on oppommity to learn about national cyber security
methods used by the military. The four-man group is caxrrently participating in the CyberPatriot
National Youth Cyber Defense Competition.
Col. Susan McDonald, Wyoming Wing Chief of Stafffor CAP, said that this is the first year that
the Wheatland division has participated in tlm event.
The team is currently comprised of four members of the Wheatland division; cautets RAett Karr,
Christian Moody, and Haiden Moody, and Justus Nelson, who is currently participating in
training out of state with the Wyoming National Guard. Richard McDonald, who is an IT
director for the school district, assists by training the group in the concepts and methods they will
need for the competition.

Lt. Col. McDonald said that the CyberPatriot program is designed to spark interest in computer
security. Cadets go through simulations that allow them to resolve computer viruses, work with
password security, and learn about various computer administration concepts. The competition
meets all STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics) requirements for colleges,
and can lead to future scholarship and education opportunities, McDonald said.
"By the time they finish, the kids learn a lot," she said.
"The only way to improve is to make yourself do something harder," 16 year-old Cadet Haiden
Moody said of the competition. "The best way .... to get better at it, is to compete."
Haiden's brother, Cadet Christian Moody, also noted that the program is important, because it
trains participants in major situations, such as international hacking incidents, but also, how to
keep personal systems more secure.
This is the first year that the local chapter has been able to field a team in the event, and
McDonald said the competition is going to be stiff.
CyberPatriot also has divisions for Middle and High School teams, as well as a division for
organizations such as CAP. The Wheatland group is the only team out of any of the divisions this
year that is based in Wyomin8.
This October, the team will participate in the first round of the competition. Working in an online
setting, the group will be scored for their performance over a six-hour period. The second and
final round will take place in November. Placing in the event depends on the collective scores
from both rounds.
"It will be really nice if we make it a good distance for our first time around," McDonald said,
noting that the group will be up against 479 other teams in their division.
Although the team has been training for this year's competition for several weeks already,
McDonald said that youth in the community can still participate in this year's competition if they
join CAP by Oct 9. Youth 12 and over are eligible to join, provided they meet certain
requirements of CAP.
Members of CAP have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of activities. McDonald
said this includes a guaranteed five hours of powered flight lessons, and five flights in a glider.
In addition to creating scholarship and school opportunities for cadets, McDonald said the
program can also help individuals considering a military career, and rmddng in the CAP can help
with ranking in other military branches.
"CAP is awesome," said 13 year-old Cadet Rhett Karr, who said his favorite activity so far was
the flight lesson he was able to take this July.

All UTWG Mission Personnel,
In order to promote constancy and accuracy in WMIRS, all mission sorties, air and ground, will
use correlated ZULU date and times.
Please pay particular attention to the date and lime and insure all entries are completed using
ZULU date and time. This becomes particularly important on the last day of each month.
During the Summer (MDT) the offset in Utah to Zulu is +6 hours.
During the Winter (MST) the offset in Utah to Zulu is +7 hours.
During Summer, if you are planning to depart on the sortie past 5:59pm (1759L) your sortie will
need to be entered for the next calendar ZULU day.
During Winter, if yon plan to depart past 4:59pm (16591,), same applies, you will need to enter the
sortie for the next calendar ZULU day.
Example:
Ifa sortie is scheduled local time for 8:oopm MDT (2000L MDT) on May 31, you add 6 hours to
come up with 2:00am ZULU (0200Z) on June 1.
In this instance, the sortie must be recorded in the June mission number rather than the May
mission. This may cause some conflict ifa mission number for the type mission may not be part of
the mission plan or has not been approved (e.g. a PCT mission exists in May, but not in June).
You must plan accordingly.
So, in order to start a sortie on the last day of the month during MDT, it must be started prim to
5:59pm (1759L) or 2359Z to be on the same month of the local date, otherwise it will have to be
approved, recorded, and released on the next months mission.
This condition also occurs on the first day of each mouth, but more than likely the offset is
covered by sleeping hours and is less of a concern. We will manage these as they pop up.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Please check any other sorties already
entered for this month and insure they are recorded accurately for June.
Thank you for your assistance and diligence and service.

Respectfully
,
Jason P,. Hess, Capt., CAP
UTWG DCS/RESP, Director oflT

NEW Nrcraft Delivered to UTWG (N786CP)
"rue Nov 17, 2015

All,
I am pleased to announce that UTWG took delivery of a brand new Cessna C172S NAVIII last week.
This aircraft is a welcome addition to the fleet bringing the number of G1000 aircraft to 6 of the 13 in the
currently in the Wingl
The wet rate for this aircraft is $75.00 per Hobbs hour for those flying on self.funded missions.
The weight and balance form has been uploaded to the Wing website with the others.
Lastly, a POH for the same model has also been uploaded to and is available for review and preparation of a
questionnaire for the Make and Model.
While funding for CAPFS's in this type is currently limited, an abbreviated CAPF5 for those already G1000
qualified would be adequate and several of our CP's will be able to help get you qualified in the type.
The aircraft is currently based at KSLC while we determine the best basing for it as well as keeping it close
to a Cessna Repair Facility to address any issues that arise in the near future.
Come on down and check out the "new plane" smell.
V/R,
JASON R. HESS, Maj, CAP Director of Operations, Utah Wing Civil Air Patrol

Provo teen saves choking Civil Air Patrol
Officer
16 July 2015
Emily Haskins, age 15, will tell you she was just in the fight place at the right time, and was
trained the right way.
l-Iaskins is a Civil Air Patrol cadet and was at a local Encampment Program in Wendover during
the last week of June. On June 28, she brought lunch to CAP senior member Alanna Mabey.
Mabey and her daughter weren't in the regular dinin8 hall, but in the logistics hut, as Mabey was
in charge of logistics. Mahey asked I-Iaskins a question just as she was about to walk back out the
door, so Hasl~s stayed a minute longer.
In the next minute, Mahey "started to make some noises as if she was clearing her throat,"
Hasldns said. "Then it looked like she was trying to gag herself. She then stood up and let out
this deathly moan. That is when I knew something was wrong."
The Provo teen ~ Mabey was chokin~ so she jumped up behind her and started doing the
Heimlich maneuver.
"It felt like I had doae the thru~ about 10 times before she said, 'It's out!' She braced herself
against the wall, and I sat down," Haskins said.
Mabey is the mother of o~e of Haskins' friends, and she considers Mabey a mother figure in the
CAP. So, understandably a~er the incident was over, Haskins was a bit shook up. But during the
emergency, she knew exactly what to do, and how to do it because she'd learned first aid and
ground search and rescue procedures during a recent CAP National Emergency Services
Academy (NESA).
"Because of my training, I wasn't scared and I didn't hesitate," Haskins said.
Mabey thanked Haskins multiple times for saving her life, but Haski~ was surprised by some of
the other expressions of gratitude. When she returned to the d'ming hall that day, the rapport staff
sent up a sudden cheer for her heroics. During the pass and review awards ceremony at the end
of the ~pment, Haskins was called out of her formation and honored and applauded for her
quick action.
She was awarded the lifesaving ribbon for the Civil Air Patrol Rocky Mountain region, and
encampment officials also submitted her name for the CAP's national life-saving award, since it
was a CAP cadet saving a CAP senior member at a CAP event.
