VOI. 27, NO. 9

CAP's fiscal 1996 authorization restored
The battle is over -- for now! Civil
Air Patrol's funding for fiscal 1996 was
restored in August when the House
and Senate reached an agreement to
retain CAP's $5 million operations and
maintenance funding authorization.
"CAP's funding crisis for fiscal 1996
has been resolved," said Col. Thomas
A. Handley, CAP's corporate legal
counsel and legislative coordinator at
CAP National Headquarters, Maxwell
Air Force Base, Ala. "But next year
presents a more serious challenge to
the corporation."
In June, the Senate Armed Services
Committee (SASC) approved a $5-million reduction proposed by Sen. John
McCain, R-Ariz., in CAP's O&M account despite a strong CAP effort to
defeat the move. McCain, who is chairman of the SASC's Readiness Subcommittee, was "concerned about the bur-

Integrity the foundation of all else
Integrity is an unwavering,
relentless adherence to honesty, courage, commitment,
and other timeless values. It
means a condition of being
whole, complete, and
Integrity is the foundation of all else.
Without this
and highly
fragile commodity of integrity, any disciplined endeavor
in American society
is hollow and meaningless. Without it we
are nothing. With it we are
Integrity is the foundation of all else-- a conviction
I hold for three reasons.
First, we have taken an oath
to "perform essential duties
for the federal government."
(Read the reverse side of your
membership cardD We have
made a commitment to volunteer public service.
In the words of the late Col.
Jonathan Hill, Middle East Region commander (1970-1976),
I n t e g r i t y.
"You ceased to be a volunteer

commitment to public service
the U.S. Air Force Auxiliary.

Civil Air Patrol has suffered
several significant aircraft
mishaps during 1995. Not all
involved improper acts by aircrews and supervisors, a few
were caused by members who
failed to live up to their responsibilities ... which means
a lack of integrity.
My Air Force partner on
the CAP-U.S. Air Force team,
Col. Wes Padgett, authored an
exceptional article about integrity in last month's Civil
Air Patrol New.~ As a companion to his thousntful piece, I
asked the editor to reprint my
article on integrity that appeared in the April 1994 issue.
I wrote it! I stand by it! I expect all to live by it!
CAP has provided exceptional public service to
America over the last half-century because we executed our
duties with a strong commitment to the tenets of integrity.
I ask that you maintain that
proud tradition.., and that you
refuse to tolerate the actions
of fellow members who fail to
demonstrate a personal commitment to integrity.

-- after which we are morally
obligated to serve our fellow
citizens. I first heard those
words during my cadet years.
They impressed me then and
impress me still.
Secondly, we wear the uniform of our nation and we are

identified by our CAP insignia
as officers and cadets who answer the call to public service
-as entrusted members of the
Air Force family. No other civilian group in America shares
this distinction or honor. It is
precious and not to be taken
lightly. It rests on our collective commitment to integrity.
Third, we are custodians of
federal and state equipment
and funds. But most importantly, we are custodians of
the public trust, and there is
absolutely no room for compromise in individual or organizational integrity. Period,
Integrity is the founda-

tion of all else. It must have
front-and-center priority in every flight, squadron, group,
wing and region across CAP.
What do I mean by this and
how does it apply to our CAP
duties? Here are some examples:
Integrity means
we execute our
duties with
to quality; integrity means we
exercise great
care and honesty
in filing valid CAP
Form 108 reimbursement
requests, transacting other
financial business and submitting routine reports to higher
Integrity means we ensure
only qualified and certified
members participate in flight
activity, emergency services
or counterdrug missions;
Integrity means we wear
our uniforms in strict compliance with CAPM 39-1, The
Civil Air Patrol Uniform
Manual. It means we don't mix
unauthorized clothing items,
such as leather flightjacke~,
with approved items;
Integrity means we conduct
all our actions in such a way
we would not be embarrassed
to have the details printed on

In late February, the Civil
Air Patrol National Board convened in Philadelphia, Pa. We
were within feet of Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell,
and the final resting place of
Benjamin Franklin and other
founding patriots. Just two
centuries ago, these men
forged a federal Constitution
-- and a new nation -- premised on the principles of integrity about which I am
speaking. We must embrace
the ideals of Washington,
Jefferson, Franklin and the
other "founding fathers" as we
answer our own r~odern-day
call to public service. Gen. Carl
A. "Tooey" Spaatz, Gill Robb
Wilso and 100,000 other CAP
airmen answered the call in
the early days of World War
II. It is equally essential we
continue their legacy of integrity today.
The American public deserves CAP's absolute adherence to uncompromising integrity. From my journeys
across the country and the joy
of working at your side, I leas and know you'll
continue to deliver the highest standards of personal integrity through your individual acts of quiet heroism.
Semper vigilans!

to be formalized when the Senate returned after Labor Day and resumed
floor consideration of the fiscal 1996

that point would be if the amendment
was caught up in the "delays and confusion of presidential politics" along
with other Defense Department funding.

would destroy CAP _ the Air Force's
premier auxiliary force _ as it exists
today. "CAP's leadership is resolved to
press the fight to have CAP remain an
integral part of the Air Force's "total
force" mix of Active, Guard, and Reserve components," said Handley.
The initiative to remain aligned with
the Air Force supports the publicly
stated intentions of Dr. Sheila E.
Widnall, Secretary of the Air Force,
and Air Force Chief of Staff Gen.
Ronald R. Fogleman.
Handley advised the National
Board that CAP must prepare for this
new and possibly stronger challenge.
He recommended that, in the very
near future, a legislative plan of action
should be started. This plan should
include another grassroots membership letter-writing campaign at the
Congressional level, grassroots contact with congressmen and senators
on the hill, and induction of congressmen and senators into CAP's Congressional Squadron.
Another potent weapon for CAP next
year will be the new high-level "CAP
Consultation Committee" which was
recently introduced by CAP National
Commander Brig. Gen. Richard L.
Anderson at the just-completed national board meeting. This volunteer
committee consists of prominent
former senior Air Force, government
and business leaders. The committee
will serve in an advisory role and assist CAP with interaction at the highest levels of government.
Dougherty will serve as chairman of
the consultation comrpittee, ~ding
to Anderson. "Gen. Dougherty andhis
contemporaries on the CAPConsultation Committee represent a formillable
force and an invaluable brain trust of
talent and experience. They will be of
immense value in charting a future
course for CAP ... and in navigating

CAP legislation through the Congress.
The CAP Consultation Committee and
our general membership will be our
keys to success!" said Anderson.
Dougherty has brought other toplevel officials to the committee, including: retired Air Force Gen. Charles A.
Gabriel, former AirlForce chief of staff;
Kenneth Goss, director of national
defense issues for the Air Force Association; Honorable ~erne Orr, former
Secretary of the Ai~ Force; retired Air
Force Gen. Michael p. C. Cams, former
Air Force vice chief of staff; retired Air
Force Lt. Gen. John Conaway, former

chief of the National Guard Bureau;
retired Air Force Maj. Gem William
Anders, former Apollo astronaut; retired Air Force Maj. Gen. Russ Davis,
vice chief of the National Guard and
former CAP cadet; and retired Air
Force Lt. Col. Kathy LaSauce, one of
the Air Force's first woman pilots.
Col. William C. Younger, CAP's assistant national legal officer, Hyers
and McKelvey were instrumental in
getting the committee operational and
have been appointed by Anderson to
serve as key CAP liaison personnel
with the committee.
"CAP's budget battles next year will
undoubtedly be helped greatly by the
members of CAP's new consultation
committee," said Handley.

Editor's note: The following editorial was published
in the "National Report"
section of the September
1995 Air Force Magazine
and reprinted with permission.
The Air Force Association
has long been a strong
supporter of a range of cadet
leadership programs, including the Air Force JROTC,
Air Force ROTC, Air Force
Reserve ROTC, Arnold Air
Society, Angel Flight/Silver
Wings, Air Force Academy
cadets, and the Civil Air
Two of these programs
have come under attack
recently during the congressional budget process m
CAP and Air Force JROTC.
AFA strongly opposes any
cuts to these worthwhile
programs. In fact, AFA is
working to expand them.
The association believes that
both programs not only
prepare young men and
women for military service,
but also are superb charac-


ter-building and citizenshipdevelopment programs.
In addition to its cadet
program, CAP is involved in
a wide range of activities
performed by highly qualified, dedicated volunteers.
Last year, CAP flew 85
percent of the inland search
and rescue missions in the
United States and was
credited with saving 154
lives. In addition, CAP flew
32,000 hours of counterdrug
missions. CAP's vast network of light aircraft and
communications systems
often are pressed into
service during disasters,
such as floods, earthquakes
and hurricanes. CAP is also
credited with saving many
lives through its organ and
blood relief missions. CAP's
missions are so important to
the U.S. Air Force that it has
been designated as the
official auxiliary of the Air
Force, the only organization
to hold the title.
Like CAP, the Air Force
JROTC program has been

under the budget microscope. Air Force JROTC is
now in 586 schools around
the country and is in the
process of expanding. Local
school districts bear a
significant amount of the
cost for these programs,
often using bond issues to
finance dedicated facilities
for the program. If congressional cuts come about,
current expansion plans will
be canceled, 83 units will be
closed and 9,000 students
will be denied the opportunity of participating in this
dynamic program.
The Air Force Association
urges all members to support these programs locally
and nationally. Encourage
cadets and their leaders to
be involved in all of your
state and chapter activities.
And, most importantly, take
time to write to your elected
representatives to let them
know you believe these
programs are a sound
investment that will pay rich
dividends in the future.


Civil Air Patrol Mews 0 September 199S

Moral leadership officer functions as chaplain service member
I, along with many former chiefs of
chaplains, have literally agonized over
the fact that at least 50 percent of our
units do not have appointed chaplains
to conduct moral leadership programs,
and more recently, the "Senior Ethics
for Command" sessions.
Unfortunately, we were forcing unit
commanders to use visiting clergy or
others to conduct these
sessions. And worse,
commanders and cadets
were signing off cadet
promotions knowing the
moral leadership section
was not being completed.
After long discussions
with various groups, both
within and outside CAP,
we now have a solid alternative. The National Executive
Committee has approved a new senior
member position entitled "moral leadership officer."
MLOs will be religiously trattled,
ecclesiastically approved senior members who function as members of the
chaplain service. They will assist and
support chaplains in moral and ethical
instruction by assisting chaplains with
worship leadership and supplementing chaplain resources during emergency services.

Whenever they function as part of
the chaplain service, MLOs will serve
under a chaplain and each one will be
assigned a CAP-appointed chaplain/
mentor inquiring.
Minimum qualifications are:
Meet all standards for senior membership (ref. CAP Manual 39-2);
Receive ecclesiastical approval

From The Top

from endorser nationally authorized
by the Armed Forces Chaplains Board;
The completion of a CAP Form 35
specifically stating in the Remarks Section they are applying to be an MLO;
Complete senior-member level 1
training; and
Receive written ecclesiastical ap-'
proval before being appointed as an
MLO and promoted to 2nd lieutenant.
Once past the initial requirements,
an MLO's duties will include: conducting "Values for Living" and "Ethics for

Command~ classes. If there is a chaplain and MLO assigned to the same
unit, the MLO will coordinate with the
chaplain to develop a schedule.
MLOs may offer advice and counsel
on matters of ethics and morals to all
senior members and cadets, and may
assist with worship by offering prayers,
invocation and benediction.
MLOs may assist the chaplain with
scheduled and announced worship settings, and, in the absence of a chaplain, conduct worship services within
the limits allowed by their denomination. They may also assist with military or military-style funerals or memorial services.
MLOs will prove valuable in the
emergency services ministry by offering spiritual support to victims and/or
survivors of disasters in accordance
with the dictates of their own religious
teachings; offering encouragement and
spiritual support to CAP personnel
and others engaged in disaster relief
activities; and assisting with the ministry to family members of missing
persons or disaster victims~
MLOs will function, however, under the following restrictions: They
may not be called chaplains or wear
any of the chaplain insignia; they are
not covered under the confidentiality

provision of CAP Reg. 265-1, and will
not engage in initial pastoral interviews unless the CAP member waives
the confidentiality right in writing
prior to the interview's beginning; they
will not engage in confidential counseling with cadets or senior members.
MLOs may counsel to the extent
any other CAP senior member with
similar education and training, to the
limits allowed by their denomination.
It is the MLO's responsibility to inform personnel prior to discussion
about this restriction.'
MLOs may not be the sole chaplain
service coverage for cadet encampments or other special activities. They
may assist, support and supplement
assigned chaplains, however.
The MLO will follow the normal
senior-member training track for their
chosen specialty. Their special profession code, however, will enable them
to receive credit for all chaplain training courses and educational events.
From my perspective, and the National Chaplain Committee, this program will greatly enhance the total
chaplain program and relieve the problems associated with unit coverage.
Editor's note: Chaplain Van Horn's
next column will appear in the November issue.

from Page 1

Both cards feature no annual fee, supplemental
auto insurance for cars
rented with the card and
supplemental lost checked
luggage coverage. The gold
card also features the Premium Buyer's Protection
Purchase Insurance, Gold
Passage Travel Services
and Visa Gold Travel Assistance Service, which
provides 24 hour medical,
legal and emergency referral service.
CAP National Commander Brig. Gen. Richard L. Anderson is a big
supporter of the new card.
During the National Board
he said, "In these days of
reduced membership,
when we have less revenue
to support many worthwhile programs and activities, the contributions
made through the use of
this card are going to be
especially meaningful."
CAP will be promoting
the cards via advertising
in the Civil Air Patrol
News and special tables set
up at region conferences.

5 September 1995
SUBJECT: CAP and Your Uniform Decisions
1. On behalf of a grateful Civil Air Patrol (CAP), ! convey our deepest appreciation
for your recent decision authorizing CAP wear of the new Service Dress uniform
and new devices on our various uniform combinations. Armed with your authorization, we publicly unveiled the new Service Dress uniform with silver-gray epaulets
and "US" insignia on August 16, 1995, at our annual National Board Meeting and
Convention in Washington DC. The capstone to your uniform decision was the vision for Civil Air Patrol you articulated so well by videotape to our conferees.
2. The response was overwhelmingly positive ... the favorable impact on morale
immeasurable ... the sense of pride uplifting. America's Air Force Auxiliary sincerely thanks you for your leadership in resolving the lingering issue of the Civil
Air Patrol uniform -- and restoring a sense of pride to the Auxiliary members of
our Air Force family. We are especially mindful of the responsibility we bear by
your decision to put "US" insignia on the lapels of our Service Dress coat. Thank
you for making us full partners in the Air For, ce'_s Total Force family of Active,
Guard, Reserve, and Auxiliary components.
3. Thank you, General Fogleman, for being CAP's "Chief," too.

of the union" address and then presented a
video message by Air Force Chief of Staff
Gen. Ronald Fogleman.
General Fogleman congratulated CAP for
its successes and offered his wishes for a
successful meeting.
Day 2 was filled with a wide variety of
seminars and ended with the national

commander's first-ever "Town Meeting."
Dialog was spirited and several issues surfaced that are now under consideration.
Day 3's General Assembly started with a
briefing on health promotion by Air Force
Maj. Dixie Lyon. Following that, Charles

Director, discussed the importance of the

and congratulations on continued success.
Next came the new awards ceremony.
The ceremony, which was produced and
directed by Mary Nell Crowe, acting director of the Marketing and Public Relations
Directorate, used an offstage voice for the
awardee announcements, a spotlight that
followed the awardees across the stage and
music with each announcement. The production took what was once a long and
laborious event and transformed it into a
memorable moment for everyone.
The ceremony was dedicated to Col. Bud
Payton, the former director of Marketing
and Public Relations. Colonel Payton passed
away just a few weeks before the meeting.
Several command changes took place:
Col. Joseph Guimond Jr. accepted command
of Northeast Region from Col. Donald N.
Prouty; Col. Jean-Pierre J. Habets accepted
command of Pennsylvania Wing from Colonel Guimond; Col. Dennis Manzanares accepted command of New Mexico Wing from
Col. Joseph Gold; and Col. Stanley
Voyiaziakis accepted command of National
Capital Wing from Col. Gene Hartman.
The evening banquet on Day 3 was a
showcase event. About 860 people enjoyed
dinner with the most distinguished head
table CAP has enjoyed in years.
The master of ceremonies was retired Air
Force Gen. Russell Dougherty, former Strategic Air Command commander-in-chief.

National board approves cadet program changes
The Civil Air Patrol National Board
approved several key changes to Cadet Programs at its recent meeting
during the CAP National Board Meeting and Convention in Washington,
D.C., Aug. 17-19.
In the continuing effort to put the
"air" back into CAP, the board authorized a massive increase in CAP flight
scholarships: from $4,200 this past year
to $20,000 for the coming fiscal year,
representing almost a 500 percent increase in available scholarship funding for qualified cadets.
For more information concerning
scholarship funding, consult CAPM 5016, the Cadet Programs Manual.

Spaatz meeting successful
The Spaatz Association's second annual meeting was recently completed
in Washington, D.C., in conjunction
with the 1995 CAP National Board
Meeting and Convention All accounts
showed it to be a phenomenal success
with highlights being the appearance
of special guests and annual election
of TSA officers.
TSA was honored to have as guests
retired Air Force Col. Douglas C. Roach
and Air Force Brig. Gen. James A.
Jaeger, both of whom were among the

first cadre of Spaatz award recipients.
Roach, a professional staffer on the
House Armed Services Committee and
a native of Michigan, has the unique
distinction of being the first recipient
of the Gen. Carl A. Spaatz Award,
having received his "diamonds" on Nov.
19, 1964. Roach spoke to the several
dozen TSA members and visitors about
his experiences as an Air Force ROTC
cadet, fighter pilot and Thunderbird
l~ilot. Now retired t'rom the Air Force',
Roach has started a second career as a
congressional staffer for the House
Armed Forces Sub Committee.
Jaeger received his Spaatz award
-- #80 -- Jan. 7, 1969. He graduated
from the U.S. Air Force Academy in
1972 and has spent his Air Force career in intelligence and plans and operations. He is presently assigned to
the National Security Agency. He and
Roach were gracious enough to spend
a great deal of time fielding questions
during and after the meeting.
In other news, the election of Spaatz
association officers took place earlier
in the afternoon. CAP Lt. Col. Elizabeth. Dunn, presently with the Ohio

The Miller School, in Charlottesville,
Vs., enjoys the unique distinction of
being quite possibly the only military
educational facility in the nation to
choose CAP's programs as the primary
mode of leadership education.
The school is a private coeducational
day and boy's boarding school at the
junior high and high school levels providing the option of a college preparatory curriculum for grades five to 12.
The school, which opened its doors
in 1869 with an endowment by Sam~tel
Miller, encourages moral, mental,
physical and academic development
through the use of military training
and disciplinary techniques.
Students enrolled at The Miller
School are also enrolled into CAP
the school is a chartered CAP squadron. The school is unique from other
units because, as a military boarding
school, it offers its students (cadets)
total immersion into the CAP Cadet
Program. Students participate in CAP
cadet activities, leadership, aerospace,
moral and physical education using
the Cadet Programs curriculum on a
daily basis.
The Miller School's small size
enrollment is approximately 120 students per year -- and high teacherstudent ratio ~ 7:1 --make the application to CAP's leadership programs
especially suitable.
The school is also academically challenging. Required courses include
three years of foreign language, two
years of mathematics above algebra
and three years of science -- all with a
minimum passing score of 75 percent.
The school has been accredited by
the Southern Association of Colleges
and Schools, recognized by The State
Board of Education of the Commonwealth of Virginia, and is a member of
both the Association of Military Colleges and Schools and Colleges of the
United States.

Orientation flight budget up
The orientation flight tallies for
April 1-June 30 are in -- a total of

1,538 cadet orientation flights were
completed with North Central Region's
Minnesota Wing receiving the h~nors
for the most number flown at 207.
Trailing close behind with 193 flights
was Southeast Region's Puerto Rico
Wing, and in third place with 92 flights
was Northeast Region's New York
Congratulations to the quarter's top
Also in the orientation flight arena,
the budget for orientation-fiight reimbursements has increased to $50,000
10,000 cadet orientation flights -for fiscal 1996 (beginning Oct. 1).
For more information about the cadet orientation flight program, consult CAPM 50-16, the C~det Programs
Manual, and CAPR 60-1, Flight Operations.

conjunction with the Coast
Guard and traffic reporting for
last year's Woodstock Concert.
The group maintains nine
squadrons throughout the three
counties. Each is a training site
for teenagers and adults
interested in emergency
services and aviation. I'n July, a
dozen of these cadets flew to
Cape Kennedy aboard an Air
Force C-130 to watch a missile
launch. In August, the group flew
to Fort Drum, N.J., home of the
10th Mountain Division, to take
part in a 10-day training encampment.
Andreu was a CAP cadet in
the 1960s. He was a member of
the White Plains Squadron that
met in the old White Plains
Armory on Broadway.
A veteran of the CAP program, Andreu has served as a
group staff officer at the
Westchester County Airport and
as squadron commander of the

second summer encampment
began July 30 with 52 "doolies,"
30 cadet staff, 18 seniors, five
Air Force training staff in addition
to guest speakers. This year,
the encampment was held at
Duke Field, an auxiliary field of
Eglin Air Force Base near
Crestview, Fla. The camp
theme, which was headlined in
the daily newspaper, the Daily
Doolie, was "If it wasn't hard
anyone could do it."
Things went as scheduled on
Monday with cadet Col. Melleaa
Levy, the cadet encampment
commander, taking EGRESS
training at Eglin in preparation
for an F-15 incentive flight.
Unfortunately, the flight wouldn't
happen Tuesday because all
the planes were flown inland in
anticipation of Hurricane Erin.
On Wednesday, the group
toured the Air Force Armament
Museum near Eglin. The museum
tour was originally scheduled for
Thursday, but other tours had
been canceled in preparation for
the hurricane.
As the group left the museum, workers were busily
boarding up the glass entrance
doors and securing the airplanes
on static display.
Most of the training required for
the doolies' graduation was
completed before the arrival of
Hurricane Erin Aug. 3. The
commander of the encampment,
Lt. Col. Fred Swearlngen, had
coordinated with the Air Force
officials from Eglin and had
devised an evacuation plan
should the hurricane hit the area
full force. The entire encampment
was moved to the Crestview
Armory, which was built like a
bomb shelter.
Swearingen's motto during
the encampment was, "1 may
retreat, but I never surrender."
He was determined to carry on
the encampment with all safety
precautions considered.
On one morning, cadets
marched to the mess hall for
breakfast, finding the senior staff
members cooking and serving
the meal because most of the
mess hall staff didn't make it in
to work. A couple of flights were

about five hours.
Fortunately, Hurricane Erin
turned slightly before hitting the
"Florida Panhandle," and the
encampment only received a
great deal of horizontal rain
driven by 40-mph winds. The
cadets stayed calm and enjoyed
the unusual classroom atmosphere.
One evening some of the staff
wereasked to help at some
hurricane shelters in Fort Walton
Beach. Under the direction of Air
Force liaison Lt. Col. Ken Krohn,
senior members Capt. Mike

These names will be forwarded to

According the Nevada Wing
public affairs officer Lt. Cynthia

reach hundreds of people at this

that, after an absence of several
years, the Nevada Wing will be
present at the Reno Air Races.
After the air races, the
traveling display unit is scheduled
to go to three other sites around
the wing for local events.
"It's one of our most valuable

suddenly due to his failing
"The loss of Red, who was
my first Wing Commander back
in 1973, is a real blow to
Wyoming and Civil Air Patrol,"
Cash said.
Since joining Civil Air Patrol in
1973, Cash has served in many
positions at squadron and wing
headquarters level. She founded
the highly decorated Douglas
Composite Squadron in 1978. At
the time of her appointment Col.
Cash was serving in several
positions in her home town
squadron and at the wing.
Besides administrative
duties, Cash is also qualified as
a mission coordinator.
One of Cash's top priorities
as wing commander will be to
remedy the problem of CAP
being the "best kept secret"
within Wyoming and to help
solve this problem nationwide. "1
learned very early on the value of
an aggressive public affairs
program in recruiting and
retention," Cash said.
Once people ate l'eerdited
and informed, Cash said, the
problems of keeping positions
filled and avoiding work overload
will solve themselves, as will
public support for state funding.
Wyoming receives no state
funding for administrative
Cash said her first duty will
be to keep a commitment she
made to Wyoming cadets to
serve as escort for their 1995
region cadet competition. Cash,
a Iongtime supporter of the
cadet program, founded a
squadron so her own four children
could have access to the CAP
cadet program.
Cash has been married 39
years. Her husband is Lt. Col.
Mark Cash, commander of the
Douglas Squadron. He is also a
mission coordinator.
Cash said, "Civil Air Patrol
has given me many opportunities
to learn and to serve my country
that just were not available
anywhere else. Serving as wing
commander is just pay-back
time gladly given."

Missouri Synod presented
Chaplain Lt. Col. Gerald Disher
with the Bronze Martin of Tours
Medal, in recognition of 20
years' service in the Civil Air
Patrol chaplaincy.
The citation reads: "in
recognition of and gratitude to
God for 20 years of distinguished service as a Civil Air
Patrol Chaplain, bringing the
military of our nation and their
loved ones." The Bronze Martin
of Tours Medal recalls the
tradition of Martin cutting his
cloak in half and sharing it with a
freezing beggar. Later in a
dream, he saw Christ wearing
the cloak. The word "cloak" is
Capella in French. From it we
derive the word chaplain.
