FROM: ORWG/HO
28735 Grumman Dr.
Eugene, OR 97402
SUBJECT: 2017 Oregon Wing Annual History Report
This past year, the Oregon Wing has worked diligently and effectively on its three assigned
missions of Aerospace Education, Cadet Programs and Emergency Services. We have
accomplished this through the faithful, coordinated work of 303 senior members, 288 cadets
and 2 state legislative members.
Our assigned area of responsibility covers 95,988 square miles—9​th​ largest land area in the
United States—and we serve a population of 4,093,465 people (latest U.S. Census estimate).
Geography, including mountain ranges and extensive forests, often adds a degree of complexity
and risk to our missions. Yet these missions have been carried out with distinction and without
injury or loss of life.
It is my pleasure to commend the men, women and young people who exemplify
professionalism in the conduct of their duties.
As the Oregon Wing Commander, I have reviewed this historical report for accuracy and it is my
privilege to approve Oregon Wing’s annual history for 2017.

SUMMARY NARRATIVE OF MAJOR ACTIVITIES
Chapter I​

​OPERATIONS

Perhaps one of the more memorable events of 2017, at least for Operations and Wing Staff,
was the loss of the Oregon Wing Director of Operations, Major Randy Ireson. Major Ireson
stepped down at the end of September due to medical issues, and passed away on 24 October.
Major Ireson’s years of service, experience, and wisdom left a significant void at the Wing level,
the Squadron level (Salem Composite), and amongst his friends and acquaintances. A memorial
service was held by Salem Composite Squadron on 7 November. A family Celebration of Life
was held 16 December, and many Civil Air Patrol members attended there as well. Major Rick
Koon assumed the duties and role of Director of Operations.
Search and Rescue
The “Search and Rescue Missions 2017” brief report created by Lieutenant Colonel Alan
Sandner, Oregon Wing Assistant Director of Operations, begins with the following summary:
“During the calendar year of 2017, the ORWG responded to thirteen A-1 SAR Missions
assigned to us by the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center. Of these, nine were
Emergency Locator Transmitter (ELT) Reports, three were Missing Persons, and one
Missing Aircraft.”1
Of the three missing persons missions, one mission was canceled before resources could be
assigned. The other two ended in finds by ground teams manned with personnel from other
agencies. ELT searches typically end with discovery of an accidental trigger of the transmitter.
However, two of the ELT searches performed had particularly unique conclusions. The first was
found by Captain Bob Kampmann and Lieutenant Colonel Dennis Wyza in a logging helicopter
parked for the weekend at the top of Mount Hebo (near the Oregon coast). Capt Kampmann and
Lt Col Wyza were awarded a non-distress find ribbon for their efforts. The other transmitter
required use of radar and cell phone forensics teams, but was eventually located safe--about 320
miles east of the planned destination, according to persons the pilot had spoken with prior to
departure.

Disaster Relief
In June, Oregon Wing members took part in “Triton 32,” an earthquake drill for southwest
Oregon. Similar to a Cascadia Event, this drill was focused on testing the use of Cape Blanco
State Airport in Curry County for evacuation of medical patients, assuming that the local medical
facilities would be severely devastated by any earthquake and the anticipated subsequent
tsunami. The other objective was to practice coordinating civilian and military response to this
type of a natural disaster. Ultimately, CAP provided not only the expected airplane related
support, but also personnel trained in FEMA’s National Incident Management System who
functioned as Incident Commander and Operation Section Chief.
The Solar Eclipse of 21 August was the other significant Emergency Services event of the
year, involving thirty-eight members who flew 55 hours from 18-22 August. During these five
days, members conducted daily “Airport and Road Survey Flights,” the findings of which were
reported to the Oregon Department of Transportation, Oregon Department of Aviation, and
Oregon Office of Emergency Management.
Homeland Security
This year’s big Homeland Security event was focused on communication. Known to some as
“A Very Bad Day,” this 48 hour exercise in November simulated the expected impact of a Solar
storm and ensuing blackout on usual lines of communication (cell phone, landline, Internet,
satellite). Practicing this scenario pointed out several areas for improvement which the
Communications Department plans to work on in the near future.
The Oregon Wing has an ongoing joint exercise with Oregon Air National Guard known as
“Felix Keynote Missions.” For these missions, CAP aircraft and personnel serve as practice
intruders in a simulated violation of Temporary Flight Restricted areas. Twenty-five Felix
Keynote Missions were flown in 2017, and the Oregon Air National Guard is anticipating
requesting even more in 2018.
Oregon Wing’s Homeland Security Officer and Disaster Relief Officer for 2017 was Captain
John Cage. In an informal interview with the Oregon Wing Historian, 1st Lieutenant Karista
Bradley, Capt Cage described his year as being primarily focused on relationship building. To
this end, he has met with a representative of Eastern Oregon Search and Rescue, and attended the
Search And Rescue Advisory Council meetings of both Lane County and Umatilla County. Capt
Cage is looking forward to further collaborating with the Search and Rescue Councils in 2018.
Counterdrug
  Due to the recent legalization of marijuana in the State of Oregon, there were no activities in
this department this year. However, there is an open dialogue with Law Enforcement regarding
other ways that Oregon Wing Civil Air Patrol may be helpful in this effort.
Chapter II

AEROSPACE EDUCATION

Internal Aerospace Education

7

Wing-level Internal Aerospace Education has a two pronged approach of classes and
workshops at the Annual Wing Conference, and an outreach program to the Squadrons by the
Director of Aerospace Education. This year’s conference activities included: Basic Alarm
Systems (electricity), Kites, Delta Dart Build and Fly, and a continuance of the Rocketry
Weekend’s Quadcopter Course and competition. In addition, the Director of Aerospace
Education, Major Brad Naas, teaches a session on techniques for ​Teaching, Instructing, and
Presenting.
Major Naas has also developed an Oregon Wing Aerospace Education Squadron of Merit
Award Program. To qualify, a squadron must have an 85% Yeager Award participation,
completed AE log, AE activity report turned in, and completed participation in AEX. As part of
Major Naas’ visits to each Squadron, he reviews the unit AE logs, and encourages them to work
toward qualifying for the AE Squadron of Merit.
At the squadron level, several squadrons are involved in the same activities, promoting a
feeling of Wing unity to these events. One such event is the Alaska Airlines Aviation Day at
Portland International Airport (PDX) which occurred on 20 May this year. Alaska Airlines hosts
CAP Cadets and several other young people in a combination career-fair and education day.
Attendees are given the opportunity to listen to a variety of presentations, tour aircraft, and speak
with industry personnel such as pilots, mechanics, air traffic controllers, and even Port
Firefighters and Police.
The other main joint-participation event was the twelfth annual Rocketry Weekend hosted by
Tillamook Composite Squadron. This weekend in July is much like an encampment, with
participants from most of the squadrons in Oregon Wing gathering to build and launch rockets.
Other notable individual squadron efforts and achievements in Internal Aerospace Education
include: ​Aurora Composite as Finalists in the Air Force Association’s ​StellarXplorers National
High School Space Competition; Hot Air Balloon Ground Team training for ​Salem Composite
and Tillamook Composite; ​Washington County Composite’s work with instrumentation and
aviation weather; ​Klamath Falls and High Desert involvement in the Madras Airshow; ​and
Salem Composite Squadron hosted two Washington Wing Squadrons for the Solar Eclipse on 21
August.
External Aerospace Education
The Oregon Science Teachers Association Conference, held in Portland, Oregon on 13-14
October, provided a special opportunity for External Aerospace Education in 2017. The Oregon
Wing Director and Assistant Directors of Aerospace Education staffed a booth that showcased a
small quadcopter and seven of the Civil Air Patrol’s version of Science Technology Engineering
and Mathematics (STEM) kits. A similar booth was set up at the ​Oregon Math Teachers
Association Conference.
Squadrons have also been very active in making sure CAP is visible at local fairs and events.
Salem Composite had a booth at Marion County Fair and Sprague High School’s Career Day.
Tillamook Composite had a booth at Oregon Coast Comic-Con. Washington County Composite
and Columbia Composite collaborated to create and staff a large booth featuring an aircraft static
display, robotic arm and quadcopter STEM kits, and aircrew to answer questions at the Oregon
International Air Show.

CADET PROGRAMS

Cadet Programs
This year, five of the ten composite squadrons were awarded Quality Cadet Unit Award.
Three cadets completed Phase IV of cadet programs, receiving the General Ira C Eaker Award.
One of these cadets went on to finish the Spaatz exam three weeks later, earning the General Carl
A. Spaatz Award. Two other cadets completed Phase III, receiving the Amelia Earhart Award.
Ten cadets received the General Billy Mitchell Award for completing Phase II and their
“enlisted” portion of training. Thirty-five cadets completed Phase I of training, receiving the
Wright Brothers Award, and began their next phase as non-commissioned officers (NCO). With
thirty-five new NCOs, the Oregon Wing third annual ​Great Start Weekend ​and NCO School,
held in October, was well attended.
At 288 strong, cadets comprise approximately half of the Wing membership. Wing Staff
have started looking at ways to involve cadets at the Wing level, such as having Cadet Wing
Staff in conjunction with the Cadet Commanders. More consideration and planning in regards to
this possibility will be deferred to 2018.
Cadet Activities
   A significant achievement in cadet activities this year is thanks to Aurora Composite
Squadron. Aurora Composite competed in the Air Force Association’s ​StellarXplorers National
High School Space Competition, and will be representing all of Civil Air Patrol at the national
finals. They will be competing against nine other teams in Colorado, 5-9 April, 2018.
Salem Composite Squadron’s CyberPatriot teams also had significant achievements; the
middle school team finished in second place for the State Award Middle School Division, and
the high school team earned honors as semi-finalists in the ​All Service Division, at the
CyberPatriot X Competition during the New Mexico CyberCamp.
In addition to the previously mentioned Rocketry Weekend at Tillamook, two other activities
involved several squadrons, the ​Night at the Museum, ​and ​Wreaths Across America.
Night at the Museum​ was hosted at the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum on 8 April.
Participants toured the museum, watched a movie in the OmniMax theater, and built rockets.
After sleeping under the tail of the Hughes H-4 Hercules Spruce Goose, attendees launched the
rockets they had built the night before. This event was attended not only by cadets, but several
senior members, including the Wing Commander.
Wreaths Across America ​is an annual event in December, honoring fallen veterans by placing
wreaths on their graves. Wreaths are typically requested by family or friends for particular sites.
Columbia Composite Squadron traditionally does this at Willamette National Cemetery, while
Mahlon Sweet Composite and Grants Pass Composite participate at each of their local
cemeteries. This year, the foundation providing the wreaths granted 5,000 additional wreaths to
Willamette National Cemetery. On 16 December, Columbia Composite, ​Aurora Composite,
Washington County Composite, and McMinnville Composite worked together through cold rain,

9

which turned to icing conditions, to ensure the wreaths were placed in a safe, timely, and
respectful manner before nightfall.
Orientation rides--known to most as “O-rides”--are an ongoing activity that both cadets and
senior members enjoy. This year, cadets participated in one hundred and thirty seven o-rides,
seventy-two of which were first time o-rides. Pilot Major Dennis Fraser, reached a milestone of
one hundred and fifty o-rides, and was recognized with a Wing Commanders Recognition Award
this year.

MEMORANDUM
FOR OREGON
WING PERSONNEL
FROM: ORWG/CC
SUBJECT: Updated Oregon Wing Emblem
1. Today the Civil Air Patrol National Headquarters approved a new emblem for the Oregon
Wing.
2. This emblem updates our previous round emblem to be more closely aligned with Air Force heraldry
guidance, specifically the modified heater shield shape. The symbolism of the additional elements are:
a. The peak is representative of Mt Hood, a recognizable and appropriate symbol for the Oregon Wing as it is
the highest peak in the State of Oregon;
b. The sweeping line below the propeller represents the wave of the Pacific Ocean which holds sway over
the elements in much of the state and demonstrates that CAP's responsibilities extend all the way to the Oregon
Coast;
c. Its azure color is symbolic of the constancy of the Airmen in the Oregon Wing; and
d. The red propeller inscribed within a white triangle, inside a blue circle is the original Civil Air Patrol
symbol, indicating a connection to our Civil Defense roots.
3. The previous Oregon Wing Patch remains authorized to wear on CAP uniforms as an optional item until the
end of the Battle Dress Uniform phase-in period, 15 June 2021. It is recommended that Oregon Wing personnel
procuring the Airman Battle Uniform wait to sew on the new Oregon Wing Patch, if they choose to wear that on
their shoulder.
4. The Oregon Wing Headquarters is working with Vanguard Industries to transition to selling the new Oregon
Wing Patch in the foreseeable future. Continue to check the Vanguard website to monitor when this will be
available.
5. Questions regarding this memorandum and the change to the Oregon Wing emblem can be directed to the
Oregon Wing Command NCO, Master Sergeant Patrick Dukes, ​pdukes@cap.gov​.
