expedited directly into the hands of the rescuers. The folks at Bose even took the time to
place batteries in each one, include boxes of
fresh batteries and provide a 24-hour technical

The headsets were connected to listening

sounds of possible survivors trapped in the rubble.

he was trained to do, he rushed to join a convoy of fire trucks speeding toward Manhattan.
Williams quickly set up the fire
department's staging area on the west side of
the World Trade Center. As a communications
and liaison officer, he dispatched teams to the
building and coordinated logistics.
He was only a block and a half away when
the first tower crumbled.
"People and firefighters ran from the tower
toward me. All I could say was, 'Oh, God. Oh,
God. Oh, God."'
A volcano of black smoke engulfed the entire lower Manhattan.
'~his is what I call the 'sound of darkness.' For three minutes or more, you couldn't
breath, see, or hear," said Maj. Williams.
The eerie bleeps from the pass alarms of
firefighters' breathing apparatus were the first
sounds to break the silence of darkness.
"The firefighters' pass alarms are designed
to detect movement and will activate after several minutes of inactivity," Williams explained.
Slowly the black smoke gradually gave way
to gray and a stark revelation.
"I went into force mode," said Williams,
"working the radio trying to contact the command post. It was gone."

Herndon, National Coordinator
for Rapid Response, and Col.
Drew Alexa, director of Advanced


Technologies, are heading up this
important effort for our cadets. It
will take place in Waco, Texas. If
you are into new technologies as
they are applied to our emergency
services mission, this activity is
for you.

In addition to these new
activities, a glider academy
specifically designed for advanced
students is being offered in
Colorado. This activity is for those
cadets well along in their glider
career. However, if that is not a
convenient location or timing,
advanced students can find
advanced tracks at other National
Ghder Flight Academies. Cadets
should just indicate a level of
experience in the remarks section
of the Form 31 when they apply.
On the powered side we will
be offering a fifth powered academy for the first time in many
years. It is planned for the Northeast Region. This will allow our
cadets in that part of the country
to find a National Flight Academy
within a reasonable distance.
The Civil Air Patrol Scholarship program deadlines are
rapidly approaching. There are
several different deadlines and
they are listed in CAPR 52-16. I
encourage all of our members to
review the scholarship opportunities and the procedures for applying. There are thousands of
dollars available in academic and
flying scholarships and some of it
is going unused.
The scholarships that go
unused are tied to specific colleges
and universities yet are aviation
oriented. For example Dowling
University has a school of aviation

that offers a full scholarship to a
cadet attending its aviation
school. The facilities and programs at Dowling are first rate. I
would encourage our cadets who
are interested in making aviation
a career to consider Dowling
University or one of
the other fine universities that provide
scholarships to our
cadets. These are
listed in the CAP
News, on line, and
the Cadet Programs
newsletter that goes
to all units.
Another opportu|
nity is for a Civil Air
Patrol Cadet to
attend the USAF Academy Preparatory School. The deadline for
that opportunity is rapidly approaching. This opportunity
provides a slot for a Civil Air
Patrol cadet. The Academy staff
chooses the applicant, but all
applications must go through

Cadet Programs at National
Headquarters. All applicants
must meet USAF Academy
entrance standards.
Most recently Auburn University, which has had a long history
in engineering, is offering a halftuition scholarship to a cadet who
wants to pursue a degree associated with the textile industry.
Auburn's textile graduates have
done work in NASA and other
aerospace industries working with
composite materials. The procedures for applying are currently
being finalized and can be found
on the CAP website in the near
Overall Civil Air Patrol offers
numerous scholarships both flying
and academic either from their
own resources or through other
parties. I urge our senior leaders
of cadets to work with their cadets
in preparing their packages for
these scholarship opportunities.
Please, do not let these scholarship opportunities go unused.

Getting to heart of chaplain program issues


ecently the following
battery of questions (10 in
all) were presented to me
for comment and response. Questions, when properly framed, get
to the heart of program issues,
problems and philosophies. As I
reviewed my answers to them, I
felt impressed to share them with
our whole Civil Air Patrol family.
It is my hope that, as you read
them, you will gain some critical
insight into the direction our
chaplain service is going. It is a
matter of crucial importance that
the CAP family share the journey
with us as we sharpen our skills
to better serve.
Question: Congratulations on
your appointment as chief of the
CAP Chaplain Service and your
promotion to the rank of colonel.
As you begin this new responsibility for approximately 650 chaplain
and 165 Moral Leadership Officers, what has prepared you for
this highest position a CAP
chaplain can hold?
Answer: Serving as national
chief of the CAP Chaplain Service
is daunting. I think, however,
that my experience in life in the
military, as a professional educator, as a pastor of churches, and
as a chaplain in the CAP over the
past 16 years plus the brilliant
mentoring I have received from
some of CAP's finest, all meld to
provide me .with equipment
commensurate with the challenge
to serve as national chief of the
Chaplain Service. I have spent 20
years in pastoral ministry, and 33
years in an academic setting as
professor of Religion and New
Testament Language, Literature,
and Interpretation. Also, I have
served as a volunteer in many
civic capacities in several geographic regions over the years.
My experience with the CAP
Chaplain Service includes service
as a squadron chaplain, deputy
wing chaplain, wing chaplain,
deputy region chaplain, region
chaplain, national deputy chief of
the chaplain service, and now
national chief. I have kept

Question: What goals would
you like to set for your tenure as
Answer: It is my view that a
close relationship with the Air
Force Chaplain Service and AF/
HC is a sine qua non for the
survival-with-credibility of the
CAP Chaplain Service (after all,
CAP is the Congressionally
chartered Auxiliary of the United
States Air Force, and we were
organized by and nurtured at the
bosom of the Air Force Chaplain
Service 51 years ago!). The full
force of my energies, creative and
otherwise, will be directed to
strengthening the relationship
between the Chaplain Service of
our parent organization, the
United States Air Force, and the
CAP Chaplain Service. I view
us--AFCS and CAPCS--as
children of common parentage,
with the AFCS being the older
I refuse to think of the CAP
Chaplain Service severed from an
on going relationship with the Air
Force Chaplain Service.
In addition to my primary

ing chaplains (and moral leadership officers) to seek training at
every level offered by CAP: To
inspire them to pursue training
objectives through every level
with a sense of fulfillment and
enjoyment, and to explore the
possibility of CAP chaplains
taking selected classes with Air
Force chaplains at the CSI at
Maxwell AFB (in light of Chapter
909 of Title 10, U.S. Code, Section
9446). It is my wish that training
opportunities will be present that
will make it possible for CAPCS
training to mirror AFCS training
as closely as possible: Especially
in areas articulated as critical by
the chief, AFCS.
c. To have all wing and region
chaplains ICS (Incident Command
System) certified by 30 June 02,
which is the second Semi-Annual
report period of my tenure. This
certification is a requirement to
serve as a Mission Chaplain.
d. To ensure readiness to
comply with Chapter 909 of Title
10, United States Code, Section
9446, which states, '~rhe Secretary
of the Air Force may use the
services of CAP chaplains in
support of the Air Force active
duty and reserve component
forces to the extent and under
conditions that the Secretary
determines appropriate." We will
identify a predetermined number

of chaplains in each of the eight
CAP Regions to be placed in a
readiness program in the event
the Secretary of the Air Force
invokes this provision in Title 10
consequent to a request by the
chief, AFCS.
e. To inspire
every CAP chaplain
currently in the
Chaplain Service to
complete the Chaplain Service Region
Staff College
(CSRSC) by August,
f. To Study the
feasibility of making
completion of the
CAP National Staff
College and Level V of the Senior
Training Program a requirement
for selection to serve at the Region
Chaplain level and above.
Question: Recognizing the
fact that all CAP chaplains are
volunteers, will you have a staff to
help you carry out these goals?
A n s w e r : Ye s . I n a d d i t i o n t o
the Chaplain Service Advisory
Council and the Chaplain Service
Executive Council, the national
Commander has approved my
request to select chaplains from
among our senior rank to form a
"Council of Special Assistants to
the National Chief of the Chaplain
Service." This council has been
selected. They are nine in number, and are committed to the
responsibilities I have asked them
to assume. The council is made
up of some of our most respected
senior chaplains, two of whom are
former chiefs of the Chaplain

Holiday stress
Some steps to help you avoid a crisis at Christmas
Christmas comes but once a
year. Maybe it is better that way.
For many people, the prospect of
the holidays and of family celebrations is filled with anguish and
anxiety. And, when those holidays
and celebrations take place without that special loved one, they are
much harder.
The holidays may be acQompanied by the emotional battering of
anticipatory stress followed by
post-holiday blues. It can take
weeks to recover the agony of unfulfilled expectations, the debt resulting from overspending to create the "perfect holiday," and the
disappointment of rediscovering
that family conflicts and losses remain unresolved despite the promises of holiday music and the commercial messages.

If you are planning a
visit with your parents, make your expectations clear. Let
your parents know
you intend to visit
with friends outside
the family. Alert your
parents to arrangements you might be
considering. Avoid
assumptions about
baby-sitting, sleeping
arrangements, transportation, and so on.

16 day Aviation-Oriented tour to China slated for May 2002
A l a . - C h i n a ' s B e i j i n g Av i a tors Association will host another
aviation oriented cultural tour to
China in May 2002.
According to Edward J.
Komyati, the organizer of the
past five China tours, the BAA
has invited a group to return to
China for a 16-day tour the highlights of which will include a visit
to Qinhuangdao to attend the
start of the first "Great Wall Air
D e r b y " a n d a Ya n g t z e R i v e r
cruise. These are both first time
events for the tour program.
The tour is scheduled to depart Los Angeles (LAX) for
Beijing on May 14, 2002. After a

night of rest in Beijing the tour
group will go to Qinhuangdao, the
take-off point for the GWAD, loc a t e d w h e r e t h e G r e a t Wa l l

Then it's back to Beijing for
two days of visiting the Forbidd e n C i t y, Ti a n ' a m m e n S q u a r e ,
the Imperial Summer Palace, the
Beijing Zoo and Aviation Museum. Our hosts, the BAA and
COITS, will treat the group to a
world famous Beijing Duck %Velcome" banquet during the visit.
Xian, located in central
China, an ancient capital city, is
next on the schedule. The group
will visit the excavation site of

They actually pay to serve.
The dynamics of a worker friendly
environment communicate the
ingredients necessary to prompt
adecision to stay. The chaplain
on the Special Council tasked with
retention will work this issue with
our wing chaplains who in turn
will work with unit commanders
to keep the fires of friendship and
appreciation burning. We will ,,
work with our chaplains and
MLOs in a way that will convince
them that excepting God, family
and church, the CAP Chaplain
Service is the best place they can
find to share and serve our country andthe American people.
Incidentally, we believe---we
really do--that this is true: The
CAP Chaplain Service is the best
place for clergy, whether minister,
priest or rabbi, to serve God and
country as volunteers.
Question: What excites you
most about ministry as a CAP
Answer: I am a WWII
veteran and an American patriot;
my love for my country America is
second only to my love for Godfamily-and-church. (You will
notice that I hyphenated the

preceding four words. For my
purposes in defining myself, those
words go together in the order in
which they are hyphenated.).
Given the things we do,
Serving in the United States Air
Force Auxiliary, CAP, is a way to
serve my country. Considering
my age, CAP is as close as I can
come to military service. Aerospace Education, Emergency
Services, and the CAP Cadet
Program are three fantastic and
exciting venues of service. To be
in a position to provide pastoral
care for the 60,000 plus CAP
senior members and cadets and in
some cases members of disaster
stricken communities as well as
family members and other people
at the scene of horrendous accidents is the grandfather of all
exciting adventures in service.
Add to this the role we are soon to
play in Home Land Defense and
you have something that will
excite and elicit for service every
ounce of service in your body. And
to think: I get to do this in a
relationship with the United
States Air Force and the Air Force
Chaplain Service.
"Wbo o0add ask fur anything mo~T

Service. This is a distinct
honor and privilege.
Question: Even though CAP
usually averages from 30-50 new
chaplains each year, a significant
number of Units still have no
chaplain assigned. Do you plan to
have any special recruitment
programs to increase this yearly
average (and man unmanned
Units with chaplains)?
Answer: Yes. Our recruitment efforts are augmented by a
professionally prepared, highly
attractive and provocative, four
color recruitment brochure. Two
of the members of 'The Council of
Special Assistants to the Chief of
the Chaplain Service" are tasked
with working therecruitmentrentention issue for us and enlisting the aid of all of our chaplains
and the commanders of the 1400
plus CAP Units in fostering the
endeavor. My immediate goal is
to have a minimum of three
fourths of the 1400 CAP Units
manned with Chaplain Service
Personnel by the end of my tenure
in August, 2004.
Question: Equally important
as recruiting chapla~s is keeping
the ones you have. On an average,

CAP loses a significant number of chaplains each year.
To what do you attribute this
loss and what would you like to
see done to facilitate the retention
of CAP chaplains?
Answer: Attrition among our
chaplains may not be blamed on
any one factor. Many factors
combine to contribute to our loss
of chaplains. One of the members
of the Council of Special Assistants to the National Chief of the
ChapIain Service is tasked with
the responsibility of identifying
key contributing factors to this
phenomenon. He has written and
is in the process of updating a
booklet on retention of chaplains.
The booklet will be a source for
instructions on retention in
connection with our Chaplain
Service Regio n Staff Colleges.
Also, we hope to disseminate the
booklet among CAP Wing Commanders.
It is my opinion that the
presence of a friendly and appreciative working environment will
greatly almt our efforts at retention. As you know, our chaplains
(and MLOs) are all volunteers
who receive no remuneration.

CAP Day (Dec, 1)

At the 2001 National Board Meeting and Annual Convention in Cincinnati, Ohio, this past August, Civil Air Patrol paid special tribute to its founding fathers and charter members. Dec. 1, will mark Civil Air Patrol's 60th and
wings and units across the nation will celebrate this event in their hometowns. To further recognize this milestone, a 60th Anniversary Gala will be
held at the National Air and Space Museum on March 2, 2001. Civil Air Patrol
leaders will honor and pay tribute to our World War II volunteer members
who served as pilots in the CAP Coastal Patrol - the very first "homeland
defense" group. Their service is one of America's great-untold stories.
The gala was originally scheduled for Dec. 1, but the tragic events of Sept.
11 prompted the national commander to reschedule to March 2, which
coincides with Civil Air Patrol Winter National Board meeting and Legislative Day.
In the wake of the attack, Brig. Gen. Richard L. Bowling issued the following statement:
"After careful consideration and discussion with the National Headquarters staff, in light of the events of last week I have decided it would be in the
best interests of Civil Air Patrol to postpone the 60th Anniversary Gala
scheduled 1 December 2001 at the National Air and Space Museum. Out of
respect for the thousands who have lost their lives, the families whose grief
we share and the weighty burden of monumental decisions facing our
elected officials and military leaders, our organization would be better served
to celebrate and recognize our 60 years of service at a later date."
The gala, co-hosted by the National Air and Space Museum, will be an
invitation-only event and will replace the Congressional Reception normally
scheduled for that time of year. A wreath-laying ceremony is planned for
March 2 at the CAP memorial at Arlington National Cemetery.
All former Coastal Patrol members are invited to attend the gala. Please
contact Charlotte M. Crowe, chief, communication plans and programs at
(334) 953-5320 or no later than Dec. 15 if you or someone you know flew as a pilot in the Coastal Patrol.

Deadline for AE Foundation grants Dec. 31
The Aerospace Education
Foundation (AEF), established in
1956 by the Air Force Association
(AFA), helps provide educational
opportunities for America's
youth. These opportunities were
initiated to help ensure future
generations of Americans:
- Appreciate the important
role of aviation and space in
America's future
Have the technical knowledge necessary to understand
aerospace issues
Have the educational
background required to pursue
aerospace careers
To accomplish their educational goals, the AEF communicates directly with the American
public about the importance of
maintaining a sound aerospace
infrastructure and the importance
of maintaining a strong Air Force
to ensure national security.

Another important part of
their educational efforts is to
support the educational objectives
of the Air Force and CAP. As part
of that support, the AEF recognizes outstanding contributions in
the field of aerospace education.
To support CAP's aerospace
education programs, the AEF
provides aerospace education
grants for Civil Air Patrol units.
Since 1996, the AEF has provided
over $65,000 to CAP units to help
fund their aerospace education
The Requirements and Selection Criteria for the Aerospace
Education Foundation grants are
as follows:
Units are eligible to

receive one grant every other
Grants cannot exceed
$250 per request.
Grants must be used for
aerospace education-related
items/activities such as books,
videotapes, aerospace-oriented
field trips, and aerospace education days.
Grants may not be used
for uniforms, honor guard, or color
guard activities nor may they be
used for individual member flying
Grant recipients must file
a follow-up report with HQ CAP/
ETA on how the AEF grant
contributed to their AE program.
Only those CAP units that

cadet members of the Brooklyn
Tech Cadet Squadron flew the
first orientation flights in the area
since the tragic terrorist attack of
September 11.
The cadets also flew the
first O-flights in the group since
CAP instituted the new flight
orientation syllabus. The pilot for
the flight was Maj. Malcolm
Dickinson, aerospace education
officer for New York Wing's New

During the flights in a
Cessna 172, Dickinson taught
the cadets about takeoff and

them how to operate the aircraft
while in flight.
Some of the cadets had
been on orientation flights
earlier in the year and were able
to experience the differences
made by the new syllabus.

different and more fun. The
longer flight times allow you to
get a handle on what it's like to
be in the air," said Cadet
Avrohom Katz, cadet commander of the Brooklyn Tech

plaque during the ceremony.
Riggs filled in for ls.t Lt.
Greg Spitzca, who is on active
duty with the U.S. Air Force
