Oral Histories

Oral Histories are conducted by historians within Civil Air Patrol to capture the events within the organization from the perspective of individual members.  Many of these interviews are conducted with long-standing members to capture changes within the organization.  Other oral histories are conducted as part of exit interviews of commanders at the squadron, wing, and regional level.  All of these documents reflect the opinions and views of the interviewee and not necessarily reflect the views of Civil Air Patrol.  They are all transcribed as they were recorded and therefore reflect the spoken dialogue in the interview, rather than an academic composition.
