NARRATIVE

INTRODUCTION
The Rocky Mountain Region completed its 59th 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 61 lnverness Drive East, Swt. 210 in Englewood, Colorado. There are
two Vice Commanders. The Region has five Wings that include Colorado,
Wyoming, Utah Montana and ldaho with their various Groups and Squadrons.

The Rocky Mountain Region completed the year 2072 with very much to be proud

of concerning all aspects of operations. Examples of this were the 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.

Dear Maj Gen Carr

I would like to take this time to personally thank and commend you anrJ the entire Colorado
Wing of the Civil Air Patrol for your outstanding suppon as the Air Force Auxiliary during the
recent wildfires.

Civil Air Patrol's ccaseless efftrrts and professiona{isrn helped mitigate addirional pain and
suffering to the residents of Colorado who were aff'ected by the fires. llre Clolorado Wing
responded rapidly and efliciently u,ith volunteers to stalT the collection and distribution cenrer in
Fort Collins which provided assistance to the residents affected hy the High Park Wildtire. Your
members provided over 1600 man hours wilh ?00 volunteers to support the assistance shelter
alone. In addition. the CAP swiftly responded to a request from Douglas County to tly fire
spotting missions throughout the Colorado Springs area. 'I'hese rnissions enabled initial
reporting on several fires and helped prevent further property danage. When FEktA requestcd
Air Force Auxiliary assistance. the Colorado Wing provided valuable high resolution images of
the wildlire areas for elamage a*$sessment and for use by our interagency partners. Your aircrews
safely flew over 90 hours in very demanding conditions and truly made a difference to Colorado
communities.
On behalf of Colorado and a gratetut nation. I want to extend my appreciation for the hard work
and long hours that the AF r\ux volunteers so seltlessly gave to this effort. I know I can count
on C,A.P. Our nation alreadv doesl
Sincerely,

Lieutenant General, US;\F

WEFN ARE WE, WHT'N ARE WE NOT?
By Capt. Sam Turner, CAP
COWG Recruitment and Retention Officer
Some years ago when I fust began grving presentations/speeches in the capacity
Wing Recruitment and Retention Officer, I admiuedly, had a little trouble

of

explaining clearly to my audiences
(1) just exactly what "Auxiliary of the United States Air Force" means, and
(2) which missions we act in the capacity of the Air Force's auxiliary and which
ones we do not.
The publication that best helped me sort this out was Air Force Instruction (AfI)
l0- 2701, and I encourage everyone to review it.
For those of you who are unclear about the correct answers to the above, I have
set-out
below, for the sake of convenience and brevity, seven paragraphs (or portions
thereof) of AFI l0-270L. In addition to answering the questions, it provides a
review of what we do and what is expected of us - from an Air Force perspective.
Please note that I have boldfaced and italicized important words and phrases.
AF10-2701:
1.2. CAP Status as an Auxiliary of the Air Force. Title 10, USC section9442 identifies CAP
asan
auxiliary of the Air Force when carrying out a missi on assigned by the Secretary of the Air
Force to provide services to any department or agency in any branch of the Federal
government, including the Air Force. CAP is deemed to be an instrumentality of the United
States while carrying out missions assigned by the Secretary.

GENERAL OVERVIEW AND RESPONSIBILITIES
The Civil Air Patrol (CAP) is a Federally chartered non-profit corporation that may

combat progftrms and mmissions of the Air Force. Such services may include Air Force-assigned
missions (AFAMs) in support of homeland security operations, consequence management,
support to civilian law enforcement, and other civil support. Certain CAP cadet and aerospace
educational programs may also be approved and assigned as Air Force non-combat missions.
When performing Air Force-assigned programs and missions, CAP assets function as an
auxiliary of the Air Force.

civilian volunteer auxiliary of the Air Force. The Secretary of the Air Force (SECAF) can

1.1. Capabilities. CAP conducts three primary programs: emergency services and

-aT

civil support,

aerospace education, and a cadet program. CAP may conduct emergency service and civil
support activities as a corporalion or when carrying out a mission or when approved and as

assigned by the SECAF (or the dcsignee), as an auxiliary of the Air Force. As a general rule,
Aerospace Education and Cadet Program activities are not AFAMs.
1.1.1. Emergency Services and

Civil Support. CAP maintains the capability to

meet

Air

Force requirements to assist Federal, state, and local agencies and non-governmental
organizations during routine and emergency situations. This capability includes aircraft,
vehicles, communications equipment and a force of trained volunteerc. The emergency
services program of CAP is the primary mechanism by which CAP supports the Air Force in
accomplishing Air Force non-combat missions. CAP also maintains the capability to respond
to requests from non-governmental orgaruzations (NGOs), state, and local authorities in its
capacity as a corporarton.
1.1.2. Aerospace Education. CAP conducts aerospace education programs - similar to Air
Force "air and space" programs - for both adult and cadet members (Internal), and the general
public @xernal) with the pu{pose of educating the public on the value and importance of
aviation and maintaining aerospace supremacy.

1.1.3. Cadet Program. The CAP cadet program originated in World War II when CAP was
established as a preparatory prograrn for the Army-Air Force Aviation Cadet Program. The
CAP cadet program motivates American youth to become responsible citizens through
aviation-centered activities that emphasize aerospace educatioq leadership skills, physical
fitness, and values education while simultaneously providing services to the Air Force and

A CAP Core Competency
Comes to Custer County Colorado
By

Maj Ed O'Brien, CAP

Black Sheep Senior Squadron, PAO

-1
\*?

The Civil Air Patrol has much to do. If you worry about ourfalling mission count,
don't. If you're anxious that we are being marginalized, sidelined, or made
irrelevant - relax.
A perfect example occurred on June 1st in Westcliffe, Colorado. Custer County's
Search and Rescue Team (SAR) bought a portable direction finder commonly
known as an Lper. They wanted to know how it worked. We went. V/e tained
them. We made friends... again.
This story goes back to January 2011 . Custer County. We were called in for a
plane crash. The Emergency Locator Transmitter (ELT) was sending out a signal.
Among the CAP teams were myself, Michael Head, and Ralph Jacobs. We all
worked that mission together. Four-wheeling through a vicious blazardthat made
for a 5-hour slog from Denver to Westcliffe. Then the following day ftacking
through deep snow - the plane was located after a 6-hour search. There were no
survivors. But our Direction Finding (DF) skills paid off. The County
IncidentCommand noticed. We made a good impression. They asked for our help
again. Fast forward to June 2012. This time we added George Dengler to our CAP
team. George had trained me in direction finding several years ago. Bob Pruiksma,
Custer County Incident Commander, Cindy Howard, Team Leader, and seventeen
members of the Custer County Search and Rescue team gathered
on a beautiful Saturday moming at the foot of the Sangre' De Christo Mountains to
train in one of our core competencies - Direction Finding an Emergency Locator
Transmitter (ELT).
First a classroom on direction finding. We spent the rest of the day on various
scenarios. First
a parking lot exercise. Initially - to determine which cardboard box has the training
beacon. Everybody got a shot. Most got it right. Those that guessed wrong took a
joke at their expense. There was even a25-cent bet, paid off. Now we scaled it up
for field exercises. LISTEN! Take bearings. Triangulate. Plot reports. Coordinate
teams. Resolve the nulls. Mark latllongs on a map. Communicate. Move. Take
more bearings. Resolve more nulls. Close in.

13

Find the beacon. Disarm the beacon. Retrieve the beacon. Debrief the scenano.
Repeat.
As Custer SAR Team Leader Cindy Howard, exclaimed;

"... this isn't as easy as it

looks."
Many County SAR teams use their beacons like a bird dog. A bit of sniffing about
- but mostly heading directly to the indicated bearing. It is their desire to get there
as fast as possible. It is there nature to dash to the scene. But in ELT searches the
scene may be illusive, conffadictory,
or just tricky. Triangulation, ploffing, and coordination make it an art as much as a
science.
The trouble is - in the up and down topography of Colorado - the direct-to-thescene method misleads about half the time. It is simple to forget the place you lost
the signal. And, it is efFortless to not recall the exact bearing where the strength
was weakest or greatest. Is
it here or there? Did we receive a better signal at240 degrees or at the reciprocal of
that bearing?
It is easy to take too many bearings, slowing down the process. And when you take
too few bearings? Well things get complicated, quickly. Methodology and
coordination are important things we know and should teach. This builds trust in
our practices, as we build confidence in all those we frain. County SAR IC Bob
Pruiksma stated, "It's a lot for an
old man to absorb," but absorb they did.
"They picked it up quick," said, CAP member Michael Head. "These guys are

good."

Air Force

has told us many times. Civil Air Patrol is no longer a stand alone
SAR Organization. CAP is part of an information gatlering team. That is our
future- part of a larger information gathering team. In the meantime we can do
some information distributing too.
As many more SAR teams take up the DF mission. As CAP moves to new
missions like airborne photogaphy, ARClmR, and Remotely Piloted Vehicles
we need to leave behind competent first-responder teams. We need to give away

The

-

everything we know to our "friends
in the field." Friends and reliable field teams are made, not born. We
went to Custer County to make both.

2olr2 Utah Wing Operational Evaluation SUCCESSFUL
Posted by: "Jonathan Niedfeldf ion.niedfeldt@qmail.com

iniedfeldt

Sun Apr 22,2012 1:51 pm (PDT)
Hello Everyone,
Wow - during this past week many members of the Utah Wing
were involved in the Great Utah Earthquake Shake-Out (M-Th),
and then our bi-annual Operational Evaluation (F-S) from the Air
Force. I want to personalh thank each and every person who
made these activities the HUGE success that they were. The
overall Operational Evaluation score for the Utah Wing was
SUCCESSFUL. The specific scores are available, but individual
area "write-ups" will not be available for several weeks. I will now
give some quick general comments and highlights, for a complete
list come to the Tuesday Night debrief! During the shake-out, we
delivered over 6oo photos to the State of Utah EOC and other
customers. During the evaluation, we had Ground Teams from
both Thunderbird and Phoenix. The ground teams had members
from other Utah Wing Squadrons on their teams. We want to
thank and were supported with air crews and air craft from the
Idaho, Wyoming, and Colorado Wings. Idaho flew on Tuesday
and Saturday. Colorado flew on Tuesday and Saturday. Wyoming
was on ready alert all week. We were supported from every
squadron in the Wing with Mission Staff, Air Crews, Ground
Crews, and more. Again, thank you to everyone for all of your
support and efforts during this extended exercise and evaluation.

UTWG Winter OPS
Tue Nov 13,201210:37 am @ST). Posted by: "Jason R. Hess"
iflybigrc

UTWG Crews: The cold is upon us and as such we need to be
cognizant of things that are different in the winter with our
persons, planes, and vehicles. Persons; Do not dress thinking you
will be OK with the heat provided by the plane/vehicle. Be
prepared to endure the cold in the case of an emergency
landing/unscheduled stop. Have a personal survival kit
appropriate for the flying/driving you will be doing. Planes: CAP
planes should be preheated if at all possible when temperatures
are cold. The planes in hangars are protected from the elements,
but preheating is a good idea for them as well. Some FBO's may
provide this service to you as a courtesy to CAP but do not expect
it. You may have to pay for the service, and this is currently not a
covered mission expense. When using the heaters in the planes
for comfort, it is a good practice to open the cold air inlet first and
then applying heat as required. The heaters work really well and if
there is not an offsetting cold air source, could cause damage to
interior components and occupants. Per one of our resident
Cessna Owners (Capt Teerlink): 'As per the POH instructions,
use of cabin heat should be to "first* pull the cabin ventilation
knob all the way out, then add as much cabin heat as needed for
the desired temperature. Only if the desired temp can't be
obtained (not likely) should the vent control be closed. The
reasoning behind this is two fold. First, it's much more effective
and comfortable to have a LOT of warm air circulating in the cabin
as opposed to a little very hot air. The second reason is that the
hot air coming off the exhaust shroud is VERY hot, hot enough to
deform and melt plastic moldings in the cabin. The SCAT ducting
used for the hot air will survive just fine, but the cabin moldings
and especially the static system components (condensation catch
27

bulb, static system hoses, etc) that are very close to the hot air
ducts, tend to sofren and melt in the presence of excessively hot
air. This same cabin hot air is used for windshield defrost. Pure
hot air is capable of softening and crazing the windshield." You
must insure that any ice arcumulation from overnight parking is
cleared from the entire aircraft before departure. Batteries may
not be enough in cold enough weather for a start. Be aware you
may need a jump if the temps are too cold. Vehicles: lnsure that
they are properly equipped for the terrain and weather you are
going to be driving.
Keep fluids replenished. Have a survival/roadside kit. Keep extra
cloths/blankets. In the end, we must treat CAP vehicle/aircraft
assets as we would if we owned them ourselves. As tax payers,
you do. Let's be careful out there and make this winter a safe,
enjoyable, effective one.
Respectfully,

Jason R. Hess, Capt., CAP UTWG DCS/Response

Thank you
Sun Dec 2,2012
Members of the Utah Wing... Thank you VERY much for your time and
talent voluntarily offered over this past week. The SAR mission that
concluded today represented an effort that was an example of selfless
service. While the outcome was not what we would have liked, the family
was most appreciative. They understood that you are volunteer
professionals and gave of your time in their service. Likewise, our CAP
command at region offered thanks and appreciation as well as members of
the State of Utah leadership. Thanks and appreciation for what you do
came from many agency sources. The Millard County Sheriffs Office was
also appreciative and offered many compliments to your dedication and
professionalism. You sustained a SAR operation that extended over many
days, something we have not experienced for many years. Yet every day,
you responded and gave 110%. You were professional in your appearance
and that was noticed by MANY. The conduct in the EOC and in the field
was an example to many who were watching. On Saturday we hosted an
RMR commander's call that included all five of the regions wing
commanders. They were ALL vocal in their praise of how well you
conducted yourselves. I know we have jobs and families and other
demands that all pull at our available time. I want you to know of my
personal appreciation that you responded. Please let your families know
(and your employers) that your efforts truly made a difference and brought
needed closure to several families. ln their process now of grief, they wil!
be seeking answers -- but through your many hours, your expertise and
your dedication to service, they will be able to bring their loved ones home
and not wonder where they are. THANK YOU very much. I am proud to call
you friends and share membership with you in this wing.
