Members honor founder
ONTARIO, Calif. -- Headed by California Wing Commander, Col. Ernest C. Pearson, a group of Civil Air Patrol
members recently honored the memory of Gill Robb Wilson
-- 1893 to 1966.
Cadets and senior members of California Wing's Group
15 participated in a wreath laying ceremony held at Forest
Lawn Cemetery, West Covina, Calif.
A native of Pennsylvania, Gill Robb Wilson graduated
from Washington and Jeffersor~ University just as World
War I broke out. lie enlisted in the French ambulance
service, but soon transferred to France's Lafayette Escadrille, as a pilot. For his exploits be was awarded the
French Croix de Guerre. He joined the American Air
Service when the U.S. entered the war.
His many activities since then included civilian pilot
training, Civil Air Patrol, writer and war correspondent in
all theaters of World War II, and serving as a government
consultant on air problems.
Two other prominent journalists of the day, Thomas H.
Beck, chairman of the board of Crowell Collier Publishing
Company and Guy P. Gannett, head of a New England
newspaper chain,joined Wilson to "blue-print" the organization of civil aviation on a national front.
However, Gill Robb Wilson worked out the details and
is generally credited as the founder of Civil Air Patrol.
Chaplain (Capt.) Bon Boldman, Group 15, led members
at the ceremony in a prayer for Gill Robb Wilson, lauding

Virginia hosts school
M A R I O N , Va . - - I n s t r u c t o r s f r o m t h r o u g h o u t S o u t h west Virginia converged on the community of Dublin, Va.,
recently to teach Virginia Wing members about the role
squadrons play in Civil Air Patrol during an intense twoday training class.
The Squadron Leadership School, held at New River
Community College, was, according to Karen Copenhayer, public affairs officer for Group I, Virginia Wing, an
in-depth study of squadron functions.
As members listened, Virginia Wing Vice Commander,
Lt. Col. William Jackson, explained the squadron commander's position and responsibilities. He explained that
the commander is resp~)nsible for the overall success of
Civil Air Patrol programs in their individual squadrons.
Attendees were taught the structure of Civil Air Patrol
and where squadrons fit into the "big picture." They were
also taught that any position or duty is important in the
squadron and that higher echelon is not only management, but also is there to support the squadron.
The Senior Program was discussed by Capt. Ken Smith,
commander of Grundy Composite Squadron. He spoke to
attendees about five levels of training available to every
adult, including college study programs offered through
the Air Force's Air University in Montgomery, Ala.
The Cadet Program, was presented by Lt. Col. Walt
Spence ofMartinsville, Va. Opportunities for cadets in the
program are numerous, the colonel said. Not only do
cadets learn to be followers, but leaders through advancement. "They are the future leaders of America," said
Colonel Spence. "They have our nation's future in their
hands. Several exciting opportunities are available to
youth as they have a chance to solo aircraft and even travel
Civil Air Patrol's multi-faceted programs include many
other areas such as communication capabilities, keeping
accurate account of supplies and materials, financial responsibilities, and public affairs.
A real treat for the students, according to Ms. Copenhayer, was when Lt. Col. Charles Glass expressed his
impression of being creative in our world of aerospace
education. "Creativity is the key," he said. "Have paper
airplane contests, model rocket launchings and tours. A
fun part for all cadets is the orientation flight program.
Each cadet can receive a flight in a variety of aircraft, from
a Cessna 172 to a big transport craft such as the C-130."


CONGRESSIONAL AWARDEES -- For what is reportedly the "first time ever," youths from
Washington State have earned Congressional Awards. Washington Wing's Mr. Rainier Composite Squadron has three cadets who are recipients of Congressional Bronze Medal Awards.
From left are Cadet Awardees, Jason Miller, Jenith Mu rphy and Chris Simmons. Congressman
Norm Dicks, (D-Washington), presented the awards. The Congressional Bronze Medal Award
recognizes young people for community services and personal development. Recipient's
records are reviewed by members of a Congressional Awards Council composed of adult
volunteers appointed by members of Congress. Nominations that are approved by the council
are then submitted to the National Office for final approval. Cadet Simmons is a junior at Rogers
High School, Cadet Murphy is a junior at Sumner High School and Cadet Miller is a freshman at
Kalles Junior High. Each cadet maintains a grade point average between 3.5 and 3.9 and is
active in school, church and Civil Air Patrol activities. (Civil Air Patrol Photo courtesy Mt.

Alaskans train in Arctic
EIELSON,Alaska -- When
the bush pilot gassed up her
aircraft in Fairbanks one cool
m o r n i n g r e c e n t l y, t h e o n l y
thing on her mind was getting
to the village of Arctic Circle
Hot Springs in time to take a
swim in a heated pool. On
this tragic day, however, she
would not make her date with
the pool.
The next day dawned with
overcast skies and cold north
winds. When Civil Air Patrol
pilot Tom Gindle and his observer crew left Eielson Air
Force Base, they too were
headed toward Arctic Circle
Hot Springs. Only they were
not thinking about swimming.
They were thinking about their
search mission and the possibility of making a rescue. The
aircrew would make it to their
destination and make a tragic
find on the way.
This scenario was only for

training purposes, yet typical
of too many actual searches
for missing pilots. Pilots who
fail to file a flight plan; who
hurry to arrive at their destinations; who fly while preoccupied with future business
or pleasure activities.
T h i r t e e n - c a d e t s a n d 11
senior members from around
Alaska came together for the
recent weekend practice

aircra~ from Eielson Composite Squadron airlifted half the
personnel and equipment to
their training site above the
Arctic Circle... Arctic Circle
Hot Springs. The rest would
make the drive in four-wheeldrive vehicles.
During the three-day training, senior members tutored
cadets in ]and search patterns,
communication skills, land
navigation, and mission docu-

mentation requirements.
Early in the training, a practice Emergency Locator Transmitter was activated to allow
both land and air search teams
to hone their direction finding search techniques. The
ELT was moved periodically
throughout the weekend to
allow participants a fresh
target to search for.
Cadet orientation flights
were the highlight for most
cadets, stated Joh n McHale, a
cadet from Anchorage. Cadet
Dawn Soileau, from Eielson,
enjoyed the swimming, but
felt the flight training from
her instructor pilot was the
most important part of her
Cadet Heather Lane, also
from Anchorage, felt her training in ground search and rescue procedures was the most
important part.

The FAA had informed Civil

The Fixed Base Operator at

Delighted to be commander CAP-USAF
By Col. Joseph M. Nail
Executive Director
Civil Air Patrol
It is an understatement
to say I'm delighted to be
the new commander of
CAP-USAF and executive director of Civil Air
Patrol. I don't know of a
job in the Air Force that
I'd rather have. I've been
aware of Civil Air Patrol
and its many valuable
programs since a college
friend acquainted me
with them some 28 years
ago. As a former Air Force

Rescue helicopter pilot,
I've particularly admired
Civil Air Patrol's search
and rescue efforts.
After being on the job
for a month, I feel like
I've been trying to "drink
from a fire hose." The staff
members have briefed me
on their functions and responsibilities and the
many challenges which
face all of us in Civil Air
Patrol. We'll meet those
challenges by remaining
"Always Vigilant."
Civil Air Patrol's motto,
" A l w a y s Vi l i g a n t , " c a n

cover a broad spectrum
of subjects. One area I
would like each of us to
give special attention to
in the coming months is
the careful, efficient utilization of our resources.
With the decline in the
Department of Defense
and Air Force budgets
that are projected, each
of us is going to have to
carefully analyze every
proposed or planned
expenditure -- "Always
Vigilant" to ensure that
we get the most "bang for
the buck." We'll also have

to make things last
l o n g e r. We m u s t b e
" A l w a y s Vi g i l a n t " t h a t
equipment is safeguarded and not abused.
If we attack every job with
the utmost integrity and
professionalism, we'll be
able to meet the many
challenges that lie ahead
of us.
These are busy times
at the headquarters. The
National Board meeting
Colonel Nail
is rapidly approaching
and we are tying up the will be a class act and I
loose ends of preparation look forward to seeing
requirements. I think it many of you there.

Chaplains train for search missions
ZEELAND, Mich. -- Chaplains of Great Lakes
Region who attended Chaplain Staff College at
Grissom AFB, Ind., recently had an opportunity for
training never before offered. The college staff, in
conjunction with Indiana Wing, conducted an Air
Force-funded practice search and rescue mission
with the purpose of training chaplains in their roles
during an actual mission.
It was training that took an interesting twist part
way through the day, said Chaplain (Lt. Col.) Scott
The total emphasis at Chaplain StaffCollege this
year was the Emergency Services mission of Civil
Air Patrol, and the chaplains' rote in emergency operations. Classes included Chaplains' Role in Emergency Services; Leadership Theory; Uniforms, with
special emphasis on fatigues and flight suit.s; Counternarcotics missions; and Mission Briefings and
Each chaplain went through the emergency services course and tested to become mission qualified
and certified.
One full day was dedicated to giving chaplains
hands-on experience by getting them out of the
classroom and into the field. Approximately 30
chaplains were transported to the Peru, Ind., airport where a mission base was set up and a practice
mission begun.
Chaplains were divided into two flights. Flight A
concentrated on flight operations including aircraft

orientation, aerial observation techniques and victim scenarios. Flight B attended classes on the
support aspects of a mission including; emergency
first aid, radio communications, and Emergency
Locator Transmitter ground team search operations. The two flights switched roles in the afternoon.
Two aircraft were available for the mission; an
lndiana Wing corporate aircraft, flown by Capt.
John Hay; and the private aircraft of Great Lakes
Region Chaplain I Lt. Col.)Joe Howe.
Every chaplain was given the opportunity to fly
d u r i n g t h e m i s s i o n . Tr a i n i n g h e l p e d c h a p l a i n s
understand the role of flight operations and support personnel during a mission, said Chaplain
Keegan. It also prepared them to minister to the
various participants in a mission, from Civil Air Patrol members to families of victims.
Approximately three hours into the mission; pilots were monitoring their radios only to }lear a
genuine activated Emergency Locator Transmitter.
The Air Force Rescue Coordination Center at
Scott AFB, Ill., confirmed the signal and an actual
mission was authorized.
Mission Coordinator, Lt. Col. Ray Andrews, Indiana Wing, now had an additional mission to run.
He selected the most qualified and experienced
aircrew from the chaplains and staffavailable, and
a sortie was sent out with Captain Hay while the

practice mission flights continued with Chaplain
The signal was intermittent, and even though it
was confirmed on three occasions, search aircraft
were not able to locate the source of the signal.
Between the two aircraft missions, almost 30 sorties were flown.
Chaplains were treated to an address by guest
speaker, Retired Air Force Col. Roger Ingvalson, a
former F-105 pilot who was shot down on his 87th
mission over North Vietnam. He was captured and
spent almost five years as a prisoner of war.
Colonel Ingvalson told of how faith in God helped
him endure the tortures and deprivation inflicted
on him and his fellow POWs.
He told of months of solitary confinement, physical punishment and mental cruelty at the hands of
h i s c a p t o r s . D e s p i t e t h e h a r d s h i p s a n d c r u e l t y,
Colonel Ingvalson related how prisoners maintained contact with one another using a "tap code,"
a clandestine form of communication through prison
walls. Chaplains were deeply moved.
Chaplain Keegan said, "The motto of the Great
Lakes Region Chaplain StaffCollege is, "In pursuit
of knowledge for excellence in service.'" Chaplains
attending this year's college received unique and
excellent training in knowledge and experience of
the emergency services role of Civil Air Patrol and
the motivation toward excellence in service through
a stirring example of faith in action.

Unit adopts a highway
COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Litter on South Carolina's highways
is reaching the epidemic stage, say officials here. So much,
that it has become an expensive and unsightly problem,
damaging the state's scenic beauty, tourism industry and economic development efforts.
The process of friendly persuasion, and distributing of
brochures and posters, and beefed up enforcement of the litter
laws, officials say, are not enough to win the fight.
A new thrust was needed to gain public sentiment and
involvement in the state's anti-litter efforts. This "thrust" is
the "Adopt-A-Highway" program. It is designed to save taxpayers money in litter removal and serve as an educational
tool against littering. Through Adopt-A-Highway, local civic,
beautification and business groups adopt two-mile sections of
highway in or near their communities, where they pick up

and cleans a specific section of highway.
Lexington Composite Squadron, South Carolina Wing, signed
up to adopt a two-mile section of road near South Carolina
Wing's Headquarters building coming into the Columbia
Metro Airport complex.
Lexington Composite Squadron felt this was an excellent
opportunity to participate in a community activity that benefits everyone. A group from the squadron of more than 20 volunteers worked for several hours initially cleaning their
newly adopted stretch of highway specified by the program.
Orange safety vests, garbage bags, and "pick-up sticks" were
provided by the Adopt-A-Highway program.
Adopt-A-Highway promotes and establishes stewardship of
public lands by citizens, and is an excellent example of the
public and private sector working together to solve a mutual

Bluct, Cadet Garret Bluct, Senior Member lhor Fulyma,
and Cadet Alex Fulyma are awakened.
They set up into ground teams, and while one team
begins checking airports, the other starts checking marinas
along the Delaware River.
At 6:12 a.m., the Delaware River team picks up a
signal in Riverside, N.J. They trace it to a New Jersey
State Police boat, tied up at the Dredge Harbor Marina.
"No problem, say team members. "We'll just contact the
State Police; right?" Wrong.
"Hello, State Police? This is Civil Air Patrol."
"The who?"
"The Civil Air Patrol. We just traced an ELT to one of
your boats. Would you mind coming down and letting us
aboard so we can shut it off?"
"Sorry, I'm the only one here. I can't leave. But I'd be
happy to loan you the keys and you can do what you've
gotta' do."
"But that's a 25-minute drive from here!"
"Sorry, that's the best I can do for you."
An hour later, the Emergency Position-Indicating Radio
Beacon is shut down and everybody on the team can go

home and get some sleep.
That's what they think.
"Hello, AFRCC? This is Colonel Sturm from New
Jersey. I've got the closing mission report."
"You're not closing your mission."
"What do you mean I'm not closing my mission'?"
" Yo u h a v e a n E LT. "
" B u t w e f b u n d t h e E LT L "
"Well you have another ELT." I It's good to be AFRCC!)
Once again the map comes out and "hits" are plotted.
Well, two things are sure. It's not in New York City; and
it's not along the Delaware River.
There are a lot of"hits" plotted in Eastern New Jersey
Since the last transmitter was fbund along the Delaware River; why not try looking along the Atlantic coast

Eagles begin lectures
AKRON, Ohio -- Civil Air Patrol cadets from the 302nd
Flying Eagles Squadron, Ohio Wing, recently began hosting monthly Aerospace Education lectures for people in
their local community.
Lectures are free and open to the public. Canton, Ohio's
Stark County Public Library, Northern Branch is the
location for the public lectures.
According to 1st Lt. Steven Stone, turnout for the first
lecture session was, "inspiring." He said that attendees
were young and old, men and women and came from as far
away as 50 miles.
Lieutenant Stone also stated that many parents who
attended asked how they could get their children involved
with Civil Air Patrol.
The lieutenant says that, due to the success of the first
lecture session, presentations will continue, "to further
educate the American public on the importance of maintaining America's aerospace supremacy."

Three-state search ends
MARION, Va. -- The second three-state search in six
weeks for a missing aircraft began after Virginia Wi ng was
alerted early one recent Saturday morning. Maj. F. J.
Copenhaver, Jr. received the call from Lt. Col. Morehead
Foard, Virginia Wing operations officer.
A Cessna 172 had departed Big Sandy Regional Airport
in Prestonburg, Ky., enroute to Lynchburg Regional Airport, Va., with two persons on board. The pilot and his
brother never made their destination.
Major Copenhaver, mission coordinator for Virginia
Wing, began concentrating search efforts in the area
around Roanoke, using ground teams from as far away as
Grundy, in Southwest Virginia, to Lynchburg and Augusta County and two teams from Marion. Due to heavy
rain and fog, aircrews were limited to using only one
aircraft Saturday for air searching.
Using electronic direction finding equipment, ground
teams were dispatched to desolate areas high enough to
receive possible signals from the aircraft's Emergency Locator Transmitter. Civil Air Patrol aircraft, using this
equipment, picked up and tracked a signal to an area south
of the Blue Ridge Parkway near Peaks of Otter.
Hampered by weather conditions and darkness, several
teams worked trying to pinpoint the exact location of the
site until 3 a.m. The search was then halted until daylight.
At dawn Sunday, miss'ion base was moved to Roanoke as
the search intensified and 10 aircrews from around the
state flew in to join the search. Maj. Gilbert Gray, of
Harrisonburg, acting mission coordinator during the night,
dispatched an aircrew from New London and a local
ground team to continue efforts in the Peaks of Otter area.
At approximately 8:30 a.m., Lt. Col. Rucker Tibbs, pilot,
and Lt. Col. Barry Redwood, observer, notified mission
base and Major Copenhaver that they had made a visual
sighting. The aircrew then landed and Colonel Redwood
led a ground team to the site for confirmation at 9:16 a.m.,
in very rugged terrain.
Three ground teams and several aircrews secured the
area until State Police officials and park service personnel
arrived at the scene. The area in which the plane crashed
was on the west side of Sharp Top Mountain north of

BIRD'S EYE VIEW -- An aerial look at the USS Arizona Memorial, in Pearl Harbor, was one of many
sights observed by 15 Civil Air Patrol cadets and senior members from Honolulu Cadet Squadron and
Hawaii Wing who recently took 90-minute helicopter orientation flights from Wheeler Air Force Base
around the Island of Oahu. U.S. Army pilots and crew members of E Company, 214th Aviation
Regiment, took Civil Air Patrol members on their orientation flights aboard two UH-1H helicopters.
With eight cadets and senior members on each aircraft, the group flew completely around Oahu,

part of its Aviation Safety and
Education Program, the local
Federal Aviation Administration Flight Standards District
Office conducted an all-day
seminar for Certificated Right
Instructors and other interested aviators at Civil Air
Patrol's Utah Wing Headquarters here recently.
Several Wasatch Composite Squadron members attended, including Jerry
Brown, Jack Ford and Robert
Eder Sr. Other Civil Air Patrol members who attended
several of the sessions were
Neilo Taylor and Jerry Maass.
Representing FAA's FSDO
were Jim Ralph, Accident Prevention specialist; Mel
Menlove and John Black, FAA
specialists and members of
Utah Wing staff; and Dave
Schur and Jim Kirby, FAA.
The seminar covered mountain flying, proposed and effective changes in airspace designation, the Certificated
Flight Instructors' entries in
logbooks, weather briefings,
new Federal Aviation Regulations, and fuel management.
Jim Ralph opened the meet-

ing with a discussion of FAA's
new attitude toward pilots in
general aviation. He indicated
that the present administration of both FAA and the Department of Transportation
wish to take a less confrontational approach to pilots. As
an example, he said that FAA
would avoid imposing automatic suspensions and other
penalties for rules violations.
He said that instead, officials
will try to position FAA more
in an educational and training role.
According to Ralph, FAA
wants to do this so it can counsel pilots who run afoul of
current rules and regulations
with the intent of helping them
become better, more aware,
Mel Menlove, FAA inspector and Utah Wing staffmember, talked about principles of
mountain flying. Menlove
illustrated his talk with color

Jim Ralph presented new
plans for reorganization of
controlled airspace adopted by
the International Committee
for Aircrai~ Organization.
Plans call for five classes of
controlled airspace, designated
by the letters A through E.
Class B will cover what is now
known as the Terminal Control Area.
The major objective of these
new categories is to simplify
current rules and to agree upon
an international standard.
