As your new Commander, I would like to take this opportunity to say
"greetings" to all of the senior and cadet personnel in the National
Capital Wing. I appreciate your vote of confidence and I hope I will have
the capability of contributing to and carrying out the responsibilities
of this office.
As commander, I am fully aware that we are an organization of civilian
volunteers who are band together to promote aviation interest and to
provide the services that we are capable of to the nation. As the United

us: Training, Search @ Rescue, flights, and so on, We operate in a
military manner since an organization such as our can function best in
that manner. In the sense that we are volunteers we are under no
obligation to attend meetings, support the Wing, work for the Wing, or do
any of the other things that make a well ordered unit. But, we have
volunteered to do just those things. We have agreed to do those things
in order to have an operation that is capable of producing the ~rained

Wing and squadrons to feel that they and they alone are the motivating
force behind the Wing and that without them, there would be no
organization, nothing would be accomplished, and that they are much too
superior to consider themselves part of the team that makes up the
National Capital Wing. This is not so~ there is no one individual in the
ing or squadron who is indispensible,and that applies with equal effect

For 1986, under the Civil Air Patrol Management Analysis Program
(CAP-MAP), this Wing placed thirty-fourth (34) in the National standings
with 2,109.3 points and placed number six (6) in the Region standings.
We all have responsible Jobs and if they are carried out to the fullest,
there is only one way for this Wing to excel, and that is upward.
We must all work together carrying out ou~ resoonsible jobs, keeping in
mind the mission of CAP comes first. My decisions, which will be mine
alone, will be first in line with the mission of Civil Air Patrol -- the
mission comes first, and we as individuals - last. This I promise and

Andrews AFB, Md. - National Capital
Wing and Maryland Wink personnel
combined their efforts to assist
Andrews Air Force Base Security
Police personnel during the 1987
Armed Forces Day Open House on 9
May. Civil Air Patrol personnel
were assigned various crowd control
and traffic assistance duties during
the day-long event which hosted over
475,000 spectators.
National Capital Wing Public Affairs
Officer, 1st Lt. Robert A. McManus
served as Project Officer and in his
remarks following the affair he
praised the efforts of all Civil Air
Patrol personnel who participated.
McManus particularly praised the
efforts of Maryland Wing Project
Officer 1st Lt. John D. Ayers, of
whom he said, "I could not have
accomplished this task without his
support."
Also
commended were
Wing Assistant

and Captain Medina, Maryland Wing,
who served as the Civil Air Patrol
Superintendent of Communications.
In a letter that followed the event,
the U.$. Air Force Director of
Security Police praised the efforts
of Civil Air Patrol Personnel.
After an unanticipated shortfall of
80 security policemen, efforts would
have been severely hampered were it
not for Civil Air Patrol.

personnel presented a display that
was Informative.
Major Darrell
Ballenger who oversaw direction of
the Civil Air Patrol exhibit display
and along with cadets of the Mount

Vernon Cadet Squadron (which
Major Ballenger commands) were
instrumental in projecting the
Civil Air Patrol mission and its
objectives. Out-going National
C a p i t a l W i n g C o m m a n d e r, C o l o n e l
Ronald A. Quander, was also on
hand and served as a viable
liason and emissary between
Headquarters U. S. Air Force and
Civil Air Patrol. Over 125 Civil
Air Patrol personnel were on hand
in strikingly crisp uniforms
bridging the gap between the U.
S. Air Force Auxilliary and
regular forces. Civil Air Patrol

The A - B - C's of Defensive Driving
Let's talk about the A-B-Cs of defensive driving.
Defensive driving starts with your A-TTITUDE before you slide behind the
wheel of your car. The proper A-TTITUDE, that you will not take chances,
that you will be observant, alert, courteous, and always conscious of YOUR
actions.
W h i l e i n t r a f fi c d o n ' t t r y t o p r o v e t h a t y o u h a v e t h e r i g h t - o f - w a y. I t m a y
turn a good day into a bad one. That car that wants to cut in front of you,
make space so that it can. In any situation that could develop into an
incident BACK DOWN, Don't crowd a situation, B ACK-DOWN before an
accidental meeting takes place.
T h e C o f d e f e n s i v e d r i v i n g i s t o m a i n t a i n a C - L E A R S PA C E
between you and the other cars. When cars are bunched up and an incident
o c c u r s t h i n g s h a p p e n f a s t - t o o f a s t ! C - L E A R - S PA C E
provides you with reaction time distance and a better view of the
s u r r o u n d i n g t r a f fi c . Yo u c a n e v m l u a t e y o u r . a l t e r n a t i v e a c t i o n s b e t t e r.
P r o v i d i n g C - L E A R - S PA C E
is a safe thing to do.
So the A-B-C's of DEFENSIVE DRIVING are:
Attitude
Back-down
Clear-space
it all adds up to

DEFENSIVE DRIVING.
