Lt Col Richard Bush

Georgia Wing structure consists of 37 squadrons divided by six groups. The six groups are divided
into three north and three south. Vice Commander – North, Lt Col Jeff O’Hara, oversees the
northern groups: Group I, II, V. Vice Commander – South, Lt Col Richard Bush oversees the
southern groups: III, IV, VI.
The wing staff underwent a restructuring in 2017 with multiple staff changes and refocusing of
duties. As directorate billets are refilled and new processes are executed, additional staff members
will be brought on board for specific additional duty assignments and special projects.
The staff meetings were moved to quarterly Saturdays for in-person meetings and the staff meets in
small, functional groups more often.

COMPLETED STAFF ACTIONS

This was an incredibly busy year for Georgia Wing operations. In addition to the usual activities,
it was an unprecedented hurricane season that garnered most of the attention of the wing and
operations staff from August until November.
During Hurricane Harvey, many members deployed to Texas to assist, even hand carrying aerial
photography and phone equipment. Those present for the national conference, took uniforms and
participated in mission base staff and flight line. Aircrews prepared to cover the in-between
states as sister wings assisted in Texas.
Soon after, attention turned to our borders as we prepared for Irma and Maria. Assets and
personnel were prepared to respond. Aircrew members assisted Florida Wing with moving air
assets and equipment north and inland while they tended to their personal situations. After the
hurricane passed, air crews helped get assets back into place and assist with missions as needed.
The weather impacted the state to such an extent that the entire fleet was grounded for 48 hours

as the storm passed.
As Maria passed Puerto Rico, Georgia Wing members volunteered to assist, sending aircrew and
mission base staff to spend 7+ days in the territory to assist as needed.
This incredible set of events lead to the creation of Georgia Wing playbooks for hurricane
response, new relationships were created with outlying airports, and local support increased for
squadrons.
While these events took up a large part of the focus of operations for a quarter of the year,
operations also continued to support our MOU with Glynn County and made efforts with the
other coastal regions to expand that mission. The MOU with GEMA was solidified and new
relationships forged.
Aircraft were sent to all major airshows in the state as scheduling and maintenance allowed for
static display to increase awareness of CAP.
A large pilot clinic was held in Peachtree City, hosted by the Commemorative Air Force, to focus
on crew resource management and hangar rash incidents.
Somewhere within the state, there was a SAREX or FTX held almost every month to provide
training opportunities for squadrons. The SAREXs are planned by each group and rotated
throughout the year. Air Operations provides support for utilizing the two aerial repeaters in the
state and also work with ground teams to find objectives.
A new emphasis was placed on Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training in
2017. Squadrons found it as a good way to introduce members to emergency services and gain
resources for members.

Georgia Wing continues to be a leader among all wings in CAP. In addition to the many AE
activities conducted on the squadron and group level, the wing organized and either directed or
participated in several important activities in 2017.
The wing capitalizes on all cadet orientation flight days to encompass a full aerospace education
event in addition to the flight itself. Depending on locations, orientation flight days featured indepth discussions on aerodynamics, pre-flight inspections, and careers in aerospace.
Many squadrons teamed up during 2017 for an excursion to the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in
Huntsville, Alabama to tour and teambuild.
Even the Wing Commander’s Call at the Museum of Aviation capitalized on an aerospace
education opportunity as unit commanders brought cadets with them to the call and they had the
opportunity to tour the museum during the call.
Multiple squadrons participated in the Museum of Aviation’s group simulation. This is an all-day
event during which participants learn chart reading, plan a mission, and execute it with linked
simulators – learning multiple skills including teamwork/crew resource management.
Individual squadrons are executing the national rocketry program curriculum. The wing is
planning a large-scale rocketry weekend in 2018.
The Rockdale County Cadet Squadron continues to be a shining example of the integration of the
Aerospace Education (AEX) program into a school curriculum. Three years after the start of the
program, the school has fully integrated and excelled with the classroom resources AEX provides
along with STEM kits from NHQ.
Multiple members of the wing participated in the Spaceflight Orientation Course in Florida. The 3
½ day course provides AEOs, AEMs, and commanders with a broad overview of space exploration
and spaceflight operations which then becomes a valuable AE resource at the unit level.

Total of 6 teams
2017 was a banner year for the Georgia Wing Cadet Program. During the calendar year, a record
breaking six cadets earned the Spaatz Awards with multiple cadets originating from the same
squadron, the culmination of a cohort success. They have set the example for cadets to follow and
increased the number of cadets achieving lead-up awards.
There was also an increase in cadet participation in both local and national events including
NCSAs, National Legislative Day, Georgia Legislative Day, and Girls in Aviation Day. Cadets
took the forefront at the legislative days to tell representatives about what CAP means to them,
they conducted Capitol tours for each other during the state day,and served as Pages. For the first
ever Girls in Aviation Day in Georgia, a national event, four female cadets represented the wing at
Delta’s Museum of Aviation to tell middle schoolers about opportunities in CAP.
The 2017 Georgia Wing Encampment was held at Ft. Gordon and graduated 109 cadets with 56
cadets serving on staff. The encampment included extensive classroom time on leadership topics
and museum tours.
The wing continued to provide O-flight options weekly in both powered and glider aircraft. OFlight days were sometimes just pre-squadron meeting activities, but were also built into major
aerospace education events as time and facilities allowed, exposing cadets to more than just a onehour flight.
This year also saw a rise in planned Great Start Weekends, helping newer and growing squadrons
build their cadet membership by senior cadets from other squadrons visiting and teaching the
fledging squadrons – leaders growing leaders.
Cadet staff has been fully integrated into wing emergency services. All SAREXs and Frostbite
include cadet staff not only on ground team, but in important positions including MRO and CUL.
Many cadets are training toward aircrew positions when they turn 18. Cadets from multiple
squadrons across the wing participated in Wing Emergency Services School (WESS) in Alabama
to grow their ES skill sets.

Six teams participated in the national Cyber Patriot Competition this year. The interest in the
program has grown and the teams are placing nationally. A plan is underway to formalize training
from the wing level to provide resources to those interested in participating.

COMMUNICATIONS
Director of Communications

COMPLETED STAFF ACTIONS
Director of Communications
Georgia Wing continues to be a leader among all wings in CAP in this area. The wing is
continually ‘in the blue’ for participation in national nets and utilization of equipment. The nets
are active every week and the wing is successful with participation in national ‘no-notice’
communications exercises.
The wings switched to a VOIP phone system in 2017, coordinated by the Director of
Communications. This switch not only reduced expenses, but increased reliability of the system,
extended range of communication, and created a professional image. With the new system,
handsets can be located anywhere, including an ICP (as was done in Texas for the Hurricane
Harvey response) and mobile command vehicles (MCVs). Anyone dialing out from the system,
including the app on a phone, appears to be calling from the wing headquarters, creating a
professional image for public affairs and for the wing staff.

The MCVs continue to be incredible assets and plans are underway to train additional staff to staff
and set up the post. The MCV is taken to most wing events and provides additional
communications training ability, notably for cadets.
Members of the communications team were among the first to communicate with Puerto Rico
during the hurricane relief efforts of 2017.
APPENDIX IV: Director of Professional Development - Data and Statistics
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
Director of Professional Development

Lt Col Patrick Zarnik

COMPLETED STAFF ACTIONS
The Georgia Wing Professional Development team strives to be the best in CAP, providing
multiple quality classes per year. The wing goal is to offer Squadron Leadership School (SLS) and
Corporate Learning Course (CLC) each quarter in different locations around the state to ensure
access for those who wish to attend. Directors or Co-Directors are chosen carefully to ensure
quality of instruction. Though the preference is for members to attend in person, a few members
have been approved for online only courses if family or professional commitments preclude
attendance in person.
The department selects a Professional Development “Top Gun” from among the professional
development officers in the wing bi-monthly. This officer is typically someone who has directed a
course and shown above and beyond support for CAP professional development.
Unit Commanders Course (UCC) is coordinated by the wing command staff and is offered twice in
2017.
Training Leaders of Cadets (TLC) is coordinated by the Director of Cadet Programs and was
offered twice in 2017 due to the curriculum change. Quarterly courses are planned for 2018 after
the new curriculum is finalized.
Members of the wing are encouraged to attend advanced level professional development courses
including Region Staff College (RSC) and National Staff College (NSC). This contributed to six
members earning the Wilson Award and nine members earning the Garber Award in 2017.

Director of Plans & Programs
This was an open position.
Director of Public Affairs
Public Affairs started a new tactic of creating a press release for even smaller events this year. The
idea is to create a book of events showing not only large recognition items, but also what CAP
does in service for the State of Georgia to present to legislators, contributors, and active duty
commanders.
Public Affairs increased the team members throughout the year with a goal to have a well-trained

Public Affairs Officer in every group, and sub-staff experts in photography, release writing, and
social media.
The team took over the wing’s social media presence, sourcing content from squadrons and the
wing commander’s social media to share information, events, and achievements with the wing.
The hurricane events in the fall took major precedence as statements were prepared for all
eventualities and even ended up in national publications.
The public affairs staff was enlisted to produce video/photo presentations for the wing conference
and encampment.
A public affairs academy is being planned for the 2018 wing conference.

All unit SUIs are up to date and no unit has been in the red.
The Wing CI has items pending closure.

Safety
An emphasis was placed on towing aircraft in 2017 due to a rash of hangar related incidents and
the safety teams increased visits to squadrons to relate a positive ground handling message. The
number of heat related mishaps, especially among cadets, was remained significant.
The number of trained mishap investigators was increased to allow for mishaps to be reviewed and
cleared more expeditiously. This also allowed for division across the state to ensure mishap
reviewers were able to remain personally disinterested in the reviews.
Wing Safety was involved in reviewing multiple high adventure activity plans during the year
including NRA marksmanship training, confidence courses, encampment, and underwater egress.
The safety message has become quite integrated into every day operations as there are few
difficulties with individuals wearing safety gear, vehicle inspections, and safety survey completion.
Government Relations
During the National Legislative Day 2017 the GAWG delegation met with all 14 Representatives
offices, mostly with staff members, and presented the state of CAP and state of the wing figures.
All individuals we met with were supportive of our efforts. Many of the individuals we have met
with previously and are anxious to hear updates now.

Legal Officer
The legal officer has been heavily relied upon in 2017 as the wing strives to gather written
agreements for squadron meeting space. More squadrons are utilizing the legal officers and
referring items to wing level ensuring contracts are reviewed and none are signed locally against
regulations.
