Depot, Bookstore close
GUNTER AFB, Aia. -- Officials at Civil Air Patrol's
Bookstore and Supply Depot have announced that both
will be closing temporarily.
Civil Air Patrol's Bookstore will be closed July 1-10 for
annual inventory and audit. The Bookstore staffwill not
process any orders during this period. The closure will
affect the store's toll free 800 number from which members
can place orders to be paid via credit card accounts.
Civil Air Patrol members planningto order materials in
coming weeks should plan ahead to beat the closure or
wait until after the audit to place an order.
Civil Air Patrol Supply Depot officials report that the
depot will be closed July 2-6. This closure is part &the
depot's annual inventory which begins July 1 and ends
July 15.
Officials at the depot say that ONLY GROUNDED AIRCRAFT PRIORITY REQUIREMENTS will be honored
during this closure.
Again, if any members need to make an order through
Civil Air Patrol's Supply Depot, they should either do so
early, or wait until after inventory.

By Civil Air Patrol radio,
Captain Wiley immediately
contacted members of' the

tinlc, Captain Forester
grabbed their vehicle's first
aid kit and ran to the disabled
truck. He found a teenaged
victim and conducted a primary assessment which revealed only cuts and bruise.treatable with fir.,.t aid techniques. However, keeping in
mind the possibility of more

Secondary School.- Principal's Meeting held here concerning the begi nning of a recruiting a nd Aerospace E(tucation
program for the county's public schools.
The plan. approved" unanimously according to Cadet
Kevin S. Ray. puhlic affairs officer for the unit, includes
speaking to potential new recruits during their lunch
break and handing out information about Civil Air Patrol.
Also, in the area of Aerospace Education, counselors and
librarians will be contacted on how to order Civil Air Patrol
Aerospace Education literature and its potential uses in
school libraries.
Future plans by the unit include establishing Aerospace
Clubs at local schools and having Aerospace Education as
an elective course.
Efforts of Virginia Wing's Charleston Cadet Squadron
members, according to Cadet Ray, will hopefully yield
many new cadet and senior members, as well as enhance
the Aerospace Education mission of Civil Air Patrol.

TV show highlights activities of seniors '55 Plus'
By Maj. Mick Bennett
Hanover Composite
RICHMOND, Va. -- When
S e n i o r N e w s A n c h o r, D o n
Newberry, hosts his weekly
special feature for local television channel-8 Sunday Evening News, he likes to create
a television portrait of the total
person, ie; business, personal,
social, hot)l)ies, etc.
Aflx~r all, th(! progTam. "Fifty
Five Plus," is about active

seniors more than age 55. The
program works to dispel the
notion that, as people grow
older they loose steam and
turn to more sedentary lifestyles.
C i v i l A i r P a t r o l ' s Vi r g i n i a

Col. lterman Mattox, were

planned to gather background
on all flwetsofMattox, a Civil
Air Patrol volunteer.
Although Coh)nel Mattox
retired after ,10-years with a
major transportation corpo-

ration, he finds time for the
law firm, and time to nurture
a small farm. His most demanding endeavor, however,
is as commander of Civil Air
Patrol's Virginia Wing.
The news team was not just
interested in the wing's flying
missions: they waned to learn
more about the cadet program,
communit.v activities, communications, history and particul a r l y, c o n t r i b u t i o n s o f C i v i l
Air Patrol members over age


One of the remarkable aspects of Civil Air Patrol, the
news team discovered, is the
number of possible stories
about Civil Air Patrol Senior
Colonel Mattox, and other
Virginia Wing officials, hope
that the news feature will help
attract new members into the
wing's various units and that
Newberry and his team will
again visit the wing to produce stories about other Civil
Air Patrol volunteers.

Cadet Stewart sets leadership example

"ROGER TEAM ONE" -- Sixgate Composite Squadron Cadet
Commander, KIm Stewart, directs a recent winter field exercise.

By Marilyn Herald,
S o u t h Ly o n H e r a l d
S O U T H LY O N , M i c h . - Kim Stewart's achievements
in both Civil Air Patrol and
South Lyon tligh School make
a strong statement about her
leadership abilities.
Those abilities are obvious
reasons why she has been cadet
commander of Sixgate Composite Squadron, Michigan
Wing, since July 1989.
A four-year member of the
squadron, Stewart has twice
been named Cadet of the Year.
On a recent cold and windy
weekend, she led 20 squadron
members in an outdoor practice session at a local farm
where Civil Air Patrol merebers sharpened their emergency service skills.
The weekend included classroom instruction and field
training exercises.
"Civil Air Patrol is called
upon by the Air Force and the
state to conduct search and
rescue missions for lost persons and aircraft, or for disaster relief in times of floods,
tornadoes and other situations," Cadet Stewart explained. She added that the
weekend activities helped cadets complete some of their
She explained that the weekend outing concentrated on
compass work and training in
use of a direction finder in
trying to locate a simulated
downed aircraft.
She has participated in several Civil Air Patrol training
sessions and encampments,

earning a variety of honors.
l,ast summer she attended
Michigan Wing's Summer
Encampment for two weeks
at Phelps Collins Air National
Guard Base in Alpena.
The first week of encampment she took part in the onthe-job training program. During the second week she served
on cadet staff as a squadron
d e p u t y c o m m a n d e r. " W e
earned honor squadron for the
week," Cadet Stewart added.
"The week at Alpena which
most of our squadron will
attend is a basic training session. We learn what they, the
Air Force, expect.
" Te a m w o r k i s t h e m a j o r
emphasis, teaching us that together each accomplishes
more. Civil Air Patrol teaches
leadership by example."
And what an example Cadet Stewart sets for her squadr o n . A s c a d e t c o m m a n d e r,
she is responsible, among other
things, for planning weekly
meeting training periods,
training cadets in proper
uniform wear, and helping lead
aerospace education. This is a
big part of the program and
includes quite a few manuals
and planning outdoor exercises like the recent weekend.
A "straight-A" student
throughout high school, Cadet Stewart said Civil Air
Patrol membership usually
means that school grades go
up. "I've had parents call and
say their son or daughter's
grades improved after they
joined Civil Air Patrol.
"Anybody who has a posi-

tive attitude and a will to learn
will probably do well in Civil
Air Patrol. We lead, but they
have to do the work themselves.
"It's a good feeli ng to be able
to help someone," said Cadet
Stewart regarding Civil Air
patrol's search and rescue mission, "and to do a service for
She said Sixgate Composite
Squadron was called out last
year to help search for a lost
86-year-old woman in the
Curtis area of Michigan. "It
was a three-day search in
dense woods and swamp, but
she was found," Cadet Stewart reported.
One of the most popular
parts of Civil Air Patrol training for many cadets is the
opportunity for orientation
L a s t s u m m e r, C a d e t S t e wart took one on an Air Force
KC-135, which refuels aircraft
in mid-air.
The young cadet commander
summed up the Civil Air Patrol motto as not ever accepting, "I can't," for an answer.
"The entire Civil Air Patrol
program stresses teamwork
and we point out that a cadet
can ask for help and get it, but
he or she cannot just give up
on a task.
"We have to be confident of
our ability to make wise decisions. That doesn't mean we
don't make mistakes; but we
are taught to be sure we
don't make the same mistake

Ralph Cravens, one of its own members, discuss a scenario involving a
hypothetical crash, in the mountains,
era small aircraft in winter. Purpose
of this discussion was to foster heightened awareness of safety and survival
Captain Cravens said the hypothetical crash site was at the 11,000 foot
level, with temperatures about 10

Cravens said that he always relied on

He reminded the audience to remember the four "threes" of survival:
Three minutes without air.
Three hours without warmth.
Three days without water.
Three weeks without food.
The four "threes" indicate which
items are most important: First, the
ability to breathe; then, keeping warm
and dry; then, obtaining water; and
finally, food.
The program generated a great deal
of responses with animated discussion from all members attending.

EDITOR'S NOTE: I liked this
article because of its potential for
reader participation. In what
order would YOU put these 15
items if YOUR life depended on
it? Fill in the blanks with your
numbered priorities and discuss
it at your unit's next survival
training session.

GUNTER AFB, Ala. -- Recently a
cadet viewed one of Civil Air Patrol's
historical displays. After seeing the
patches, ribbons and badges he asked,
'%Vhat's CAPC?" His question required
an explanation with information that
may not be common knowledge to
newer members of Civil Air Patrol.
For almost 25 years, all members of
Civil Air Patrol have worn the letters
CAP in brushed silver, without periods, as collar/lapel insignia. For a
short time the letters CAP were even
worn on flight caps of senior member
officers. These letters were not the
original insignia for Civil Air Patrol;
and back in the old days, cadets had
special insignia.
Many members may remember that
Civil Air Patrol was established by
Executive Order in December 1941.
At the time there was only one classification of membership. Soon two
categories of membership were established; members and officers.
When the first uniforms were authorized, the only way to identify an
officer was by his tan tie, rather than
the black tie worn by members. By
the summer of 1942, military rank
insignia, both officer and enlisted, had
been authorized. In October 1942 a
new junior membership was authorized. This was the beginning of Civil
Air Patrol's Cadet Program.
The term cadet was not just pulled
out of a hat. For years military students had been designated as cadets.
Civil Air Patrol's use of the term can
be traced to that tradition.
A cadet was a student. A cadet was
learningand in many cases went on to
join a military service. This was during
WWlI and all young men could be expected to serve.
Each adult member of Civil Air Patrol
could sponsor a cadet and each Civil
Air Patrol unit could sponsor a CAPC,
Civil Air Patrol Cadet, unit. Flights in
these units were made up of at least 50
cadets and squadrons had up to 200
members. There were five members
who served as officers for cadet units.
All cadets served as privates, corporals or sergeants.
The uniform for cadets was the same
as that for Civil Air Patrol members;
except that cadets did not wear red
shoulder straps, and had their own
unique insignia. Cadets wore the
Civil Air Patrol shoulder patch, a blue
3-i nch circle with a white triangle and

red three-bladed propeller on their
left shoulders.
But, the cadet patch had the tab,
with the word CADET in red on white
under the shoulder patch. Cadets
also had a cloth propeller and wing
insignia in red, white and blue to wear
on their flight caps and the very distinctive C.A.P.C. insignia.
The C.A.P.C. insignia, shown above,
was either a silver cutout pin or a
white series of letters on a blue patch,
which was worn over the left pocket of
the uniform shirt.
During the war there was a shortage of metal for insignia, so the patch
became more frequently used until
after 1944.
In 1948 cadet insignia was standardized and the silver C.A.P.C. letters were worn on shirt collars or the
lapel of an Army-style service jacket,
when worn by cadets.
These insignia remained the same
until the Air Force-style blue uniform
was authorized in the early 1950s.
In the 50s a new cadet breast patch
was authorized. This was sewn over
the right pocket of the uniform and
contained the words, "CADET, CIVIL
A I R PAT R O L . " T h e C . A . P. C . l a p e l
and collar insignia remained the same
until 1966, when in an economic move,
as well as an attempt to follow the
"new" Air Force insignia style of
brushed silver, instead of highly polished insignia, the new CAP lapel/
collar insignia were authorized and
all members now wear the same letters on their uniforms.
Today there is very little to distinguish cadets from senior members.
Collar insignia is the same. ID/nameplates are the same. Only rank insignia, ribbons and Civil Air Patrol emblems can identify a cadet.
Afar almost 50 years, Civil Air Patrol
h a s c o m e a l o n g w a y, b u t c a n s t i l l
learn from its history.
When a member asks a question;
we should do our best to give an answer.

Civil Air Patrol's history, or uniform
items, they are encouraged to send
them to:
