PREFACE

Much can be offered in support of the positive morale value
of recognition for a job well done. Traditionally the military has utilized ribbons and medals as awards to recognize
the singular accomplishment of both units and individuals.
Obviously the greatest value occurs when awards are pres e n t e d a t a t i m e c o n t e m p o r a r y t o t h e a c t . C o n v e r s e l y, v a l u e
is lost with the passage of time. This was the case in the
delayed awarding of Air Medals to824 valiant Civil Air
Patrol Members. It was not until 1948; some five years after
the fact, that these awards were made. This study is not
offered to editorialize on the delay. Rather, it is offered
as a means of providing additional recognition for the recipients.

Addi£ionally this study will serve as a compilation and analysis of all awards made to Civil Air Patrol Members.
Numerous steps have been taken to insure its completeness.
There always exists the possibility that someone has been
overlooked. If so, profound apologies are offered by the
author.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

Certainly high on the list of people providing help is Mr.
H a r r y F l e t c h e r o f t h e U . S . A i r F o r c e ' s A l b e r t F. S i m p s o n
Historical Research Center. It was Harry who guided the
author through the maze of orders and regulations to the
point of identification and copies of specific orders. The
same type of accolade is in order for Messrs. Jackson and
Ta y l o r o f t h e M o d e r n M i l i t a r y H e a d q u a r t e r s B r a n c h , M i l i t a r y
Archives Division of the National Archives and Records Service. Without their assistance the elusive General Order
and associated material relating to the Sharp-Edwards Award
would not have been located.

Thanks are also certainly due to fellow members of the Civil
Air Patrol's National Historical Committee for their continued support.

Primary credit for the less than glamourous portion of this
work justifiably goes to fellow CAPer G. Jude Miller. A
product of the technically highly proficient current generation, Miller has enabled the author to present several
analysis which are germane to a study of the individuals
involved. Utilizing his personal computer, Miller has converted the structured General Order Listing to forms more
useable by the historian.

Appreciation is also due to Mr. Robert M. Smith, Jr. of

New Orleans for the donation of his father's Air Medal to
CAP Museum program. This medal was used as the basis of
the frontispiece so ably done by Ms. Nancy Nevil also of
New Orleans.

Last but not least are the very patient Ms. Patti Kaes and
Ms. Margaret Molaison who have suffered through the author's
semi-literate scribble to produce a readable and, I hope,
i n t e r e s t i n g s t o r y.

CHAPTER 1

THE MEDAL

Long a tradition in European armies, the recognition of individuals for special acts had its beginning in the United
States Military with the Badge for Military Merit.1 Orders
creating the Badge for Military Merit were issued by the
Continental Army on August7, 1782. A simPle heart shaped
piece of cloth, it was awarded to all ranks involved in
a c t s o f u n u s u a l g a l l a n t r y. G e o r g e Wa s h i n g t o n w r o t e w h e n
he established this first award, "The road to glory in a
patriot army and free country is open to all".

By definition that dedicated band of volunteer civilian
aviators who made up the ranks of the Civil Air Patrol
certainly met General Washington's definition of a patriot
a r m y. H o w t h e n d o y o u r e c o g n i z e t h e i r a c c o m p l i s h m e n t s ?
O b v i o u s l y, t h e s i m p l e s t s o l u t i o n i s t h e u t i l i z a t i o n o f a n
existing award. This was the course of action ultimately
taken to recognize selected individuals whose performance
of duties in defense of their country made them exceptional
candidates for the award of the Air Medal.

The Air Medal was established for use by all branches of
the United States Military establishment on May II, 1942.
The basis for its establishment was Executive Order Number

9158 of ii May 1942 (Section III, Bulletin 25, War Department, 1942}, as amended by Executive Order 9242-A of
ii September 1942 (Section III, Bulletin 49, War Department,
1942), and further amended by the National Security Act of
1947.2 The medal is awarded to any member of the Armed
Forces of the United States for qualifying service subsequent to September 8, 1939. This combat or non-combat
award is awarded to individuals who have distinguished themselves by meritorious achievement while participating in
aerial flight. It was conferred in recognition of either
single acts of merit or for sustained operations against
armed enemies of the United States.

The medal itself, which was designed by Walker K. Hancock,
is in the form of a 16-point sculptured compass rose of
bronze. The obverse depicts an American eagle volant in
attitude of attack gripping flashes of lightning in its
Q

talons. The eagle is centered in the compass rose. The
suspension ring is attached to the medal utilizing a
fleur-de-lis. Passing through the suspension ring is a
ribbon of medium blue with narrow golden-orange stripes on
each side. The reverse, which was a raised disc, was left
blank for engraving of the recipient's name. As illustrated
by the frontispiece, awards presented to Civil Air Patrol
Members were uniquely engraved in that they bore the typical
inscription, "Robert M. Smith, Ist Lieut., Civil Air Patrol,
A c t i v e D u t y, 1 9 4 2 - 1 9 4 3 " .

CHAPTER 2

F O R VA L O R

Although the orderI awarding the first Air Medals read for
"Meritorious Service" the content of that order would certainly indicate a significant amount of valor involved in
the first two Air Medals awarded to Civil Air Patrol personnel. The citation for the award to Edmond I. Edwards,
Civil Air Patrol read the same as the one for Captain Hugh
R. Sharp, Jr. which is quoted below:

"Hugh R. Sharp, Jr., captain, Civil Air Patrol, serving with
Army Air Forces. For meritorious achievement while participating in an aerial flight. When called upon by radio
to rescue personnel of a crashed airplane an extremely
hazardous landing was made at sea in swells 8 to i0 feet
high. Although the left pontoon was damaged in landing, the
airplane was kept from capsizingby expert airmanship and
the rescue accomplished. As the sea was too rough for take
off it was necessary to taxi the airplane until it could be
towed the rest of the way to port. This difficult mission
of great responsibility required outstanding initiative, resourcefulness, and a high degree of courage. The superior
manner in which all duties were performed will establish
high traditions of service for the Civil Air Patrol".

The valor involved in Captain Sharp's and Lieutenant
Edwards' daring rescue of fellow pilot Lieutenant Henry
T. C r o s s i s b e s t i l l u s t r a t e d b y L i e u t e n a n t C r o s s ' e x planation of what happened:2

"On July 21, 1942 at approximately 16:50 while on regular
Patrol Mission at position latitude 3806 - longitude 7455
in a Warner Fairchild NC19144 with Lt. Charles Shelfus as
observer we crashed at sea. On regaining Consciousness in
the water I found the ship had sunk and I could not find Lt.
Shelfus".3 What is not told by Cross, is that he had
suffered several fractured vertebrae and that his rescue
would in itself result in a heroic effort by others. Within
55 minutes Rehoboth, Delaware Base 2's Sikorsky Amphibian
arrived on the scene. Crewed by Base Commander, Major Hugh
R. Sharp, Jr. and Lieutenant Edmond Edwards this venerable
old aircraft encountered difficulty in its landing in the 8
to 10 foot swells. Due to a rough landing, the Sikorsky's
left pontoon was damaged and begin to fill with water. What
followed is best described by Major Sharp.

"After landing was unable to locate survivor for several
minutes on account of rough sea. Finally sighted Pilot Cross
at several hundred yards distance while he,and Amphibian were
on crests of waves. Encountered some difficulty in making the
downwind turns to reach the victim, but this was finally
accomplished, and a first attempt was made to taxi the ship up
to victim. On this first attempt, however, we misjudged the

strength of the wind and were blown away from the victim bef o r e w e w e r e a b l e t o g r a s p h i m . O n s e c o n d t r y, h o w e v e r, w e
were successful in grabbing ahold of the victim who was unable to hold on to the rope which was thrown to him because

Pilot Cross from the water and helped him into theship,
which was no easy task because of the rough water and the
violent pitching Of the Amphibian".4
+ .

"Remained in water at location searching for Observer Shelfus
until 18:20. There being no signs of Shelfus and with Cross
in serious condition, it was deemed wise to get to shore as
soon as possible. As the sea was too rough for takeoff~+
we started taxiing on westerly courseat 18:20. At approximately 18:25 port wing float sank. Observer Edwards went out
to starboard bomb rack for balance, where ~e sthyed uncomplainingly until the ship was beached at Chincoteague at
about 01:30 th~ following morning. This was no easy task
for Observer Edwards for he had stripped off almost all of
his clothing in order to give them to Pilot Cross. At intervals all during the night, he was completely immersed in
the sea during which waves flowed over the starboard wing
float to which the bomb rack was attached, and to say the
least, he was far from comfortable from cold after the sun
went down". 5

"Laid course for coastal buoy No. 3 planning to tie up to it
for the night, not having sufficient gas to taxi to Chincoteague,

t h e n e a r e s t h a r b o r. B y t i e i n g t o t h e b u o y, o u r p o s i t i o n
could be reported by radio so that fast Coast Guard boat
could rush Cross to shore for medical aid".6

"Condition of sea made transfer of Cross unwise"o8

"Seaplane was taken in tow by picket boat at 19:50 and towed
to Chincoteague, arriving about 23:45".9

Sharp and Edwards were later awarded CAP's Blue Merit Emblem
prior to their award of the Air Medal from the hands of
President Roosevelt at a White House ceremony in February of
1943. Roosevelt's comments to Sharp that this was the first
time thathe had awarded this medal was fitting tribute in
itself.I0

As a postscript, Captain Sharp remained as the Commanding
Officer of Base 2 until its closure on August 31, 1943.
Lieutenant Edwards was later commissioned in the United States
Navy where he continued to serve with distinction. Although
unable to fly due to his injuries, Lieutenant Cross later
transferred to Civil Air Patrol's Coastal Patrol Base Number

CHAPTER 3

F O R S U S TA I N E D O P E R AT I O N S

"NUFF SAID - Two tired, dirty CAP coastal patrol fliers
l a n d e d , o u t o f g a s , a t E l l i n g t o n F i e l d , Te x a s , a f t e r a s i x hour ramble over the Gulf. Between them, the two had
around 1500 hours over the water.

Across the field they noticed an impressive ceremony was in
progress. What's doing? one of them asked.

They're awarding the air medal to some of the fliers, the
mech explained.

W h a t f o r ? c a m e t h e q u e r y.

The men have completed 100 hours of flight over the Gulf on
patrol in their B-25s.

Oh, came the somewhat muffled reply from the visitors. And
the two climbed back into their 90 horsepower, single engined
Stinson Voyager for another long and weary round of escort
duty".

To u n d e r s t a n d t h e p s y c h o l o g y b e h i n d t h e a b o v e i n c i d e n t i t i s
necessary to examine the background and accomplishments of
Civil Air Patrol's wartime Coast Patrol Operations. Prior to

World War II a Joint Army-Navy Committee on Antisubmarine
Warfare was established in order to fix responsibility for
submarine defense in the Coastal Waters of the United States.
The Army felt that in view of their Coastal Defense responsibility via its Coast Artillery Mission they had the responsib i l i t y, a n d a s a c o n s e q u e n c e d e s i r e d t o e q u i p t h e m s e l v e s w i t h
suitable aircraft. On the other hand since earlier agreements and directives provided for over-water flight operations
t o b e c o n d u c t e d b y t h e N a v y. A l t h o u g h t h e N a v y ' s p o s i t i o n p r e vailed, neither branch of service was in a position to do much
immediately upon entry into the war. Shipping losses from
the "Arsenal of Democracy" soared primarily as the result of
marginally challenged German submarine activity in the Coastal
Waters of the United States. In the first 6 months of 1942
180 allied ships were lost, many of which were in sight of
land.

After several unofficial flights by dedicated pilots of the
budding Civil Air Patrol an appeal was made by them to be
utilized in this vital role. On February 17, 1942 the Chief
of the Army Air Forces was authorized to accept the services
of the Civil Air Patrol on a "trial basis".

Subsequent

instructions of 9 March 1942 provided for the establishment
of the Civil Air Patrol's first two Coastal Patrol Bases at
A t l a n t i c C i t y, N e w J e r s e y a n d R e h o b o t h , D e l a w a r e . 3 P r i o r
even to these basic instructions, the airmen from Rehoboth
made their first patrol on March 5, 1942 with aircrews from
Atlantic City following shortly on March i0, 1942. Restricted

initially to these two bases and a 15 mile offshore limit,
the value of the initially intended 30 day trial period became obvious. Within the next 6 months, by September of
1942, 21 such bases had been established along the East
Coast and the Coast of the Gulf of Mexico and their range
greatly extended. By September shipping losses dropped off
to 1 in that month and a total of only 7 for the balance of
the war. As a total, these bases flew 86,685 missions for a
t o t a l o f 2 4 4 , 6 0 0 h o u r s . 4 To p u t t h i s i n p r o p e r p e r s p e c t i v e
during a typical month, October 1942, military aircraft flew
a total of 1-1,385 hours on this type of activity while the
volunteers of Civil Air Patrol flew 23,612 hours.5

A profile of the pilots and others involved in this monumental
undertaking is an insurmountable task. It suffices to say that
they ranged in age from the young pilots who iied about their
ages to the 70 year old seasoned veterans of World War I. The
vast majority of them were far beyond the normal military service age. From an economic point of view, they ranged from the
Te x a s m i l l i o n a i r e s t o t h e b a k e r y t r u c k d r i v e r f r o m D e n v e r w h o
hitchhiked his way to his first active duty base. Motivation,
purely and simply patriotism of the highest order. It certainly wasn't for the recognition afforded by the award of a
medal by a grateful government. This didn't occur until 1948.

Minutes of the Civil Air Patrol's Board Meeting of 16-17
February 1948 announces pending approval for the award. The
minutes give testimony to the considerable effort put forth

by Civil Air Patrol National Headquarters and CAP Veterans
Incorporated. Using as a criteria 200 hours of over water
fl i g h t a s c o m p a r e d t o t h e i 0 0 h o u r r e q u i r e m e n t b y t h e A r m y,
824 Civil Air Patrol Veteran Pilots were finally recognized
by a series of General Orders beginning on 14 April 1948.

Of this number 822 were given the initial award of the Air
Medal and Sharp and Edwards were awarded Oak Leaf Clusters
by virtue of their previous award.

CHAPTER 6

H Q M E S TAT E O F R E C I P I E N T S

Based on a computer generated listing of all known recipients, a study was made of their home state. It is
based on the individual's serial number which was assigned
sequentially by the Wing (state) where the member first
joined Civil Air Patrol. For the purposes of this study
it is assumed that members joined CAP in their home state
and, therefore, the serial number prefix number is used as
a means of identifying home states. For statistical purposes Sharp and Edwards are included as having received
only one award.
