From The Commander


mpments..An Important Facet

by Brig. Gen. Leslie J. Westberg, USAF
National Commander

The summer months are rapidly
approaching, and that means the time
of year when most of our cadet
encampments are conducted.
The importance of getting your
cadets to an encampment cannot be
overemphasized. This meaningful
activity has a tremendous impact
upon cadet retention, particularly
for the first-time attendee. It can
really boost a cadet's interest and
enthusiasm level
and spur his participation in the
cadet program. It
is for this reason
that first-time encampment attendance is again
being measured i n t h e N a t i o n a l
Commander's Evaluation system
this year.
As you know, this program includes
two types of encampments :the type A
for which aetive Air Force installa-

tions are requested from USAF by
National Headquarters; and the type
B, which are condueted at
community, state, national and DaD
facilities not specifically requested
by this headquarters. The type B encampment must be arranged by the
CAP wing and the USAF-CAP liaison
of fleer.
Of coarse, we would like to get all
of oar cadets to a type A encampment
for it gives them a firsthand look at
the Air Force and how it operates.
This year we have received an
excellent response to our request for
Air Foree facilities to support our
encampments. We are doing
everything possible to further the
number of bases that can host a type
A encampment and also to increase
the number of cadets each can
Even with this improved picture,
the number of cadets in Civil Air
Patrol versus the available Air Force
facilities makes it impossible to send
every cadet to a type A encampment.

Therefore, in order to provide each
cadet with the opportunity to meet
the requirement for the Miteheil
Award, the availability of a type B
encampment becomes extremely
important for every wing. I wish to
emphasize no difference in credit for
either encampment type; one is
every bit as valid and important as
the other.
CAP-USAF Regulation 50-9
provides for the use of Air Force
Reserve personnel to assist in the
liaison necessary to establish and
conduct cadet encampments. Some
wings have expressed the desire to
increase the number of reservists
that can be utilized. However, in
these days of austere budgeting, we
will have to work within the
limitations set forth in this directive.
What this means is that the CAP
senior members will have to take a
greater hand in planning and
conducting their encampment
program. CAP encampments have

always been the wing commander's
r e s p o n s i b i l i t y, b u t n o w h i s
appointment of the senior member
staff will take on added significance
in the overall success of his program.
One final word -- I am sure you
have heard the adage that the job is
never done until the inevitable
paperwork is finished. Cadet
encampments are no exception. The
wing must send its encampment report to National Headquarters in order to credit the cadets with attendance. The procedure is not a difficult
one,.and your timely attention to this
final step can avoid delays in your cadets' progress, and possibly even affect your wing's final standing at the
end of the year.
I am eonfident that through your
efforts in light of the above
.considerations, this year will be the
one in whieh more cadets than ever -and especially the first-timers,will
be able to participate in this exciting
and important facet of the .cadet

Designation of this act as HR 13884 advances this critical
legislation to its highest plateau since the problem was
first aired in CAP's 1968 Report to Congress. During the
interval, Civil Air Patrol's membership has suffered
through a succession of high expectations and low spirits
when frustrating delays prevented enactment.
I can assure you that despite these setba6ks~ compounded

. .


WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- O. Franklyn Griffith was a skilled radio
technician and amateur radio operator at a time in which a leading
college physics textbook still found it necessary to spell out the word
"electricity" phonetically. The readers might well have been
unfamiliar with that invisible force which was altering their lives.
After graduating from Winston-Salem City High School (now R.J.
Reynolds) in 1927, Frank Griffith began his work in electronics,
which has alternately been a vocation and avocation for him. Now,
Griffith, as communications officer of the Winston-salem Composite
Squadron, has direct responsibility for a network of more than 75
radios working on three different frequencies over the city. His duties
involve him in instruction in fundamentals of radio operations, administration of complicated licensing procedures, and the general welfare
of all CAP radio traffic carried on by operators ranging from the age
of 14 to 65.
Radio, however, is only one of Griffith's interests. For 12 years he
was a member of the Winston-Salem Fire Department, leaving that
profession with two service stars and ~a passion for safety which was to
shape the course of his later work life. Coincidental with his work in
fire fighting and prevention, he took an interest in first aid and became an authorized instructor in 1930, the year of hismamageto his
wife, Virginia.
For four years after he left the fire department he worked in Atlanta
for the Retail Credit Company, but in 1948 he returned to WinstonSalem to begin work in safety for the North Carolina Industrial
Commission. He retired from the commission in 1973 after 25 years of
labor in quest of safer working conditions for the citizens of the state.
Retirement didn't mean less work for Griffith, however. He still
works on a part-time basis as a safety consultant.
Last May, before his retirement, Frank Griffith found a new interest
in the work of the Civil Air Patrol. He says that it was the CAP
involvement of his son, CAP Maj. (Dr.) O.F. Griffith Jr., who teaches
physics at Louisiana State University in New Orleans, which excited
his interest. In CAP, Frank found a way to combine his twin interests
in radio and safety to the advantage of the local unit and the community at large.
Griffith, who holds the rank of CAP second lieutenant, like some
other members of CAP, prefers to leave flying to those who have the "
skill and interest. He is content to administer the communication
affairs of the squadron and to give classes in radio operation, safety
and first aid.
Leading an even busier life than when he was employed by the
Commission, Griffith still finds time to work with amateur radio. He
has even found a new hobby, Indian Clubs, with which he entertains
church groups, safety conferences, and on o.ccasion, the CAP
squadron. Yet, when there is a search and rescue mission, the tall
frame of Frank Griffith is to be found at squadron headquarters bent
intently over the radio equipment directing the communications so
vital to the success, and safety, of the mission.

Facilities Get Name Change
MAXWELL AFB, Ala. -When Civil Air Patrol Cadets
participate in the Air Force
Logistics Command (AFLC)
orientation program this
summer, they will find that
AFLC has redesignated its five
large industrial-type facilities
from air materiel areas (AMAs)
to air logistics centers.
"The new name will more
accurately reflect the greatly
increased responsibilities
carried out by the centers since
their original designation as
AMAs in 1946," Gen. Jack J.
Catton, AFLC commander,
said in announcing the change.
When the change becomes
effective shortly, the AMAs will
be known as the Oklahoma City
Air Logistics Center, Tinker
AFB, Okla. : Ogden Air Logistics
Center, Hill AFB, Utah; San
Antonio Air Logistics Center,
Kelly AFB, Tex.: Sacramento
Air Logistics Center, McClellan

systems such as the B-52 Stratofortress bomber, the Minuteman intercontinental ballistic
missile and the F-15 Eagle

fighter (under development), as
well as any subsystem,
component or piece of
equipment needed to keep the
force operationally ready.
"Redesignation of these activities as air logistics centers will
more readily convey to our
customers -- the Air Force's
commands and allied nations -and to the public the true scope
of their work and the real extent
of their global responsibilities," General Catton said.
AFLC -- e~ploying some
110,000 military and civilian
personnel -- provides maintenance, supply, procurement and
distribution support to a total
force -- including nearly 11,000
aircraft in the U.S. Air Force

allied nations, all intercontinental ballistic missiles, ~round

equipment -- in short -- the
entire spectrum of Air Force
materiel requirements.
The command manages a
financial program of approximately $10 billion a year from
its headquarters at Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio.
Beginning in mid-July, 90
cadets will visit Robbins AFB,
Ga., Tinker AFB, Okla., and
McClellan AFB. Calif.
They will receive a one-week
course designed to familiarize
them with the nature and
purpose of the Air Force
Logistics Command. The course
consists of briefings and presentations that will provide an
insight into the support and
logistics requirements of the
U.S. Air Force.

CAP Training Aids Teacher
ANOKA, Minn. -- A recent graduate of Civil Air Patrol's
National Staff College, CAP Capt. Dennis Rock, put his experience
from the Staff College's "Project X" to work during his college
internship at Rogers Elementary School.
The students had some excess time and energy during recess and
under his guidance an obstacle course was constructed using two
boards set 25 feet apart with obstacles of old tires and barrels in the
The students then work through the course with as much speed as
possible. The idea of the course was to build confidence in the
students. According to unofficial reports, the girls seem to outdo
the boys in this sport.

appreciation for his

for the lost or injured he calls
a "signal panel."
The signal panel, which is
dropped from a CAP search
aircraft consists of a 7xA
square foot piece of yellow
plastic material sewed on all
four sides to a piece of red
flannel the same size.
When it is spread out on the
ground with the red flannel
on top it means "situation is
critical". If one corner is
turned in towards the center
(yellow plastic side next to
the ground) the message is
"need gas and oil." If all four
corners are turned in it
means "need medical
attention." These are three
of 12 messages that may be
relayed through the use of the

explained. "Also, the plastic
would be ideal to place next
to the ground in case of
dampness and the' flannel
would give a person warmth
in case he wanted to use it for
a shelter after he had
signaled his message. As for
the colors, yellow and red
show up very well."
A plastic bag is used to
contain the panel tied with a
strong cord. Four streamers,
two inches wide and two feet
long, are sewed to the plastic
cover at one end to give the
package a smoother and
more stable flight after it has
been thrown from the
Included in the bundle are
written instructions and
pictures showing how to use
the panel for signaling and
how to make a shelter
Colonel Norem says the
package can be thrown with
extreme accuracy - to within
10 or 15 feet of the person on
the ground.
"We fly our single engine
propeller-driven plane at a
low aJtitude at 100 miles an
hour," he explained, "very
much like a final approach to
landing. As the intended

person on the ground is
injured and not able to move
very far.
Colonel Norem decided a
signal panel of some sort was
the answer, and "It had to be
a simple device as the
victims are almost always in
a state of shock to some
"I chose plastic and flannel
for the panel because they
are inexpensive for one

under the nose of the aircraft
the signal panel is thrown."

Answers Questions
PROBLEM: I attended an
encampment last summer. Last
month when I sent contract no 7
to National Headquarters to
qualify for my Mitchell Award
they said I didn't have an
encampment and therefore
didn't qualify for my Mitchell. I
did go. Why didn't I get credit? I
think that this last minute
n o t i fi c a t i o n i s u n f a i r. I t h a s
caused a lot of confusion and
delay Can something be done to
SOLUTION: Your problem is
one that quite a few cadets run
into unnecessarily. Each month
units receive a monthly
membership listing, that shows
which requirements are credited
to cadets in the unit. You should
be able to tell from this whether
or not you received credit. Many
cadets fail to receive credit
because they are incorrectly
lised on CAP Form 7. Incorrect
serial numbers and unit charter
numbers are the main problem,
but many items are reeeived
with no serial number or that list
"PENDING". This will not
credit the cadet. It is up to the
squadron to review the listing
and submit a eorrection should
any cadet fail to receive credit.
PROBLEM: I am ready to
take the Aerospace Education
Exam and anxious to get my
Mitchell Award. My squadron
commander requested the exam,
but the request was returned by
National Headquarters who said
that our squadron was on
"HOLD" and nobody here

take the test. What is "HOLD"
and how can we get out of it? My
progress has stopped and I want
to get going again.
SOLUTION: Units in CAP that
are on "HOLD" status are
denied participation in the
Centralized Testing Program.
All test packages are, assigned
control numbers and suspense
dates. Tests not returned or
otherwise aceounted for to
National Headquarters/EDAE
by the suspense date will cause
units to be denied testing
privileges until the test is
accounted for. To be removed
from this "HOLD" status the
unit should return the test in
question. If this is impossible
due to the loss or destruction of
the test, the squadron
commander should notify
National Headquarters/EDAE
by letter, explain the situation
and request reinstatement of
testing privileges for his unit.
PROBLEM: Now that the
item on cadet achievement
contracts has been deleted from
the National Commander's
Evaluation System, are cadets
still required to complete three
contracts per year?
SOLUTION: As stated in
CAPM 50-16, paragraph 9-1, the
cadet program assumes that the
average time required to
properly complete the 15
achievements is five years, or
t h r e e c o n t r a c t s p e r y e a r.
Although this is no longer on the
NCES, three contracts per year
can per cadet is
still the
participation goal.

PROBLEM: Our wing is
planning a leadership school for'
cadet NCOs this summer. Can it
be credited as a type B

S TAT E C O L L E G E , P a . - Several members of 'the Penn.
State University Composite
Squadron 1303 recently travelled to Florida where they
toured the Cape Canaveral
Space Center -- spent a day at
Disney World--and watched
their hometown team play in
the Orange Bowl.
Travelling in the squadron bus,
a Volkswagen Camper and a
Winnebago motor home, the
group spent seven days making
the 3,000 mile trip.
The trip was climaxed when
they saw their team, the Penn
State Nittany Lions beat the
Louisiana State University
Tigers in the Orange Bowl.
Except for the stay at Patrick
AFB, the group used their
vehicles for sleeping and got
their meals at stops along the
way. They used radios to keep in
contact with each other and
checked in on CAP radio nets
along the way.

When Civil Air Patrol was
chartered on July I, 1946, by Public
Law 476, the congressional
mandate stated that one of the
missions of CAP was "To provide
aviation (aerospace) education and
training, especially to its senior and
cadet members; and to provide an
organization to encourage and aid
American citizens in the
contribution of their efforts, services,
and resources in the development of
aviation and in the maintenance of
air supremacy."
The farsighted individuals who
framed the constitution of CAP
recognized that aviation, both civil
a n d m i l i t a r y, w o u l d p l a y a n
increasingly important role in the
future. Further, they realized that in
a democracy the citizenry ultimately
determines the government's role in
aerospace and that an informed
citizenry is vital to a strong national
aerospace education.
The CAP aerospace education
effort is based on a two-pronged
approach; an internal program for
its cadet and senior membership,
and an external program for the
general public.
The internal program involves a
comprehensive aerospace education
curriculum as a requirement for all
CAP cadets. This curriculum
provides a general understanding of
the broad scope and the social,
political, and economic impact of
aerospace on our world. More than

600,000 young American men and
women have passed through the
CAP cadet program in the last 28
years and have taken their place in
society as informed, involved,
aerospace-minded citizens.
addition, all CAP senior members
must complete an aerospace
education requirement as part of
their Level I training.
The external aerospace education
program of Civil Air Patrol provides
materials and services to the
education community at all levels,
kindergarten through college.
Among the most significant of the
external programs are the CAP
coordinated school elective
program, the CAP college workshop
program and the CAP sponsorshil~
of the National Congress on Aerospace Education.
More than 1500 junior and senior

high schools in our nation are
currently teaching an aerospace
education elective course using
materials developed by Civil Air
Patrol. In addition to the texts,
student workbooks and instructor
guides used in these courses, CAP
also provides a complete course
syllabus and audio-visual materic~ls.
It is estimated that about 75,000
Students a year are introduced to
the aerospace world using these
One of the most important
contributions Civil Air Patrol makes
to aerospace education is in the
area of teacher training. Each year
there are between 150 and 200
workshops conducted in various
colleges and universities which are
supported by CAP and the U.S. Air
Force. These workshops run from
two to four weeks, and provide the
mostly elementary


with the background
to teach aerospace
education i n t h e i r s c h o o l s . A
complete listing of the 1974 teacher
workshops is included in the center
section of this special edition.
Each year Civil Air Patrol cosponsors the National Congress on
Aerospace Education which is the
only national level aerospace
education meeting conducted in our
nation. This meeting brings the
leaders of government, industry
and education together with the
aerospace education teachers to
share the latest
methods. The other three cosponsors of this Congress are The
Federal Aviation Administration,
The National Aeronautics and Space
Administration, .and The National
Aerospace Education Association.
The Civil Air Patrol has a long
and a proud record of service to our
nation. Countless thousands of
victims of natural disasters and
hundreds of downed pilots have
been assisted by our dedicated
members. Although not as well
known nor widely.publicized as the
emergency services mission, the
aerospace education of our citizenry
provided by CAP is equally as
important because, for the past
three decades, it has worked to
insure that the United States
maintains its position o f w o r l d
leadership in aerospace.
