Civil Air Patrol Management Analysis Program (CAP-MAP)
By Colonel Joseph J. Hannan,
Director, Plans and Programs
National Headquarters

was discontinued ,dJJlJ~

achieved through changes in
the frequency of reporting. Reporting requirements that were
either eliminated or changed include:

Although a significant reduction in reporting and paperwork was achieved, cancellation
of the WEEP had two undesirable side effects. First, it left
Civil Air Patrol without a formal management analysis program. Secondly, it caused termination of WEEP awards.
Thus management lost an effective tool for measuring CAP
readiness to perform its missions; and, deserving units
lost an opportunity to be properly recognized for their efforts. The Civil Air PatrolManagement Analysis Program (CAP-MAP) was instituted to again allow top management to track CAP readiness.
The new program also incorporates a Reports Review and
Analysis Committee which is
chartered to act as watchdog




on the program. Thus, efforts
to reduce unnecessary paperwork in the field will not be allowed to regress.
The system also provides a
mechanism through which a
new recognition subprogram
can be implemented. The NEC
approved a CAP-MAP subprogram to replace the old
WEEP awards. "Top 8 in the
80's" awards under CAP-MAP
will initially run from 1 January through 30 June 1980 and
thereafter be on the CAP fiscal
year cycle.
Under the CAP-MAP objective/subjective evaluation
sub-program, Commander's
Special Emphasis Items
(CSEI) are used as yardsticks
to objectively appraise unit
level readiness. Criteria are also
provided for region commander
use in making subjective evaluations of win performance,
thus giving region commanders
a strong voice in selecting the
"top" wing under their command. The objective portion of
CAP-MAP is assigned a numerical value of 75% while the
subjective evaluation is
weighted at 25%. Objective
and subjective evaluation
scores will be combined for
final CAP-MAP results to
identify the top performing
wing in each region as one of

by NEC members (other than
region commanders) in their
appraisal of region performance. As mentioned earlier,
the subjective rating combined

Car Wash Raises Money For Cadet Activities
NEDERLAND, Texas -- What
kind of fund raising project is a
"free" car wash? It was highly
successful for the Civil Air
Patrol Mid-County Comp. Sq.
(Texas Wing) here, when the
squadron washed 112 cars one
S a t u r d a y i n S e p t e m b e r.
Members worked 9 a.m. to 6
p.m. to raise funds for cadets to
fly commercially to the wing
conference in Amarillo.
This, however, required a lot
of planning and energy for
squadron members.
First, a suitable location had
to be found. A former service
station facility (now a radiator

shop) with concrete front and
outside faucet was available and
five gallons of liquid soap was
donated by a janitorial supply
business. Hoses, brushes and
rags were furnished by unit
members. Since the radiator
shop owner donated his location
and the water, there was very
little expense involved.
Six weeks prior to the car
wash, a mimeographed statement giving details about the
free car wash was given to every
member. Each member had the
responsibility of securing at
least 20 sponsors to pledge a
given amount of money for every
car the squadron washed.

A sponsor who pledged 10
cents for every car washed owed
$11.20 after the car wash. When a
member had 20 sponsors each
pledging 10 cents a car washed,
that member collected a total of
$22.40. Therefore, several
members getting 20 sponsors
can bring the total to a substantial amount. Each sponsor's
name and address and the
amount pledged was entered on
the mimeographed page.
Three days prior to the car
wash an ad was placed in the
local newspaper. Announcements were also made on
local radio stations.
Members made coupons by

typing a legal size page stating
"This coupon good for one free
car wash" and giving the date,
time and place of the car wash.
Then they copied the page and
cut out 1,000 of these coupons to
hand out prior to the car wash to
try to get people to bring their
cars in.
A large sign was posted at the
front entrance near the street to
a t t r a c t t r a f fi c p a s s i n g b y.
Included in the vehicles
attracted by the sign were
several motorcycles and two 10wheeler trucks. These were
washed free also. However, the
truck drivers made a generous

donation to the squadron.
A senior member met each car
as it drove in and asked the
driver to write their name,
address and license number on a
form that had been prepared for
this purpose. After the car wash,
these forms were xeroxed and
each member given a copy to
present to their sponsors when
collecting their pledges so each
sponsor could see how many
cars were washed.. Two weeks'
time was allotted to collect from
the sponsors.
This was the most successful
fund raising project the MidCounty Sq. has ever undertaken.

search and rescue exercise.
Base of operations for the first
exercise of 1980 was at PhoenixLitchfield Municipal Airport in
Goodyear, west of Phoenix.
Other airports in the Phoenix
area were also used.
During the exercise, a team of
Air Force liaison personnel gave
the wing's performance an "outstanding" rating.
Evaluation was done in the
areas of flight ability and flight
planning. The exercise
simulated an aircraft downed in
an undisclosed mountainous
location and pilots and observers
were sent out on search missions
to find it.
A debriefing and critique concluded the three-day gathering.
During the exercise some 200
CAP members, both fliers and
ground personnel participated.
More than 20 aircraft, both CAPowned and privately owned were

R e cur rin g Eval uati on D i scre p an c i es L i s t e d
Primary SAR evaluations
during 1979 revealed some
recurring problems. A majority
of the discrepancies identified
would jeopardize the safety of an
actual mission. Each Civil Air
Patrol unit with an emergency
services (SAR) mission should
conduct a self-examination to
see how well they fare in these
areas. A partial list of
discrepancies included:
The alerting roster was not

not properly checked.

Safety briefing was inadequate.

Mission logs were weak and
did not provide the data needed
for later evaluation.
Land search vehicles were
not marked in accordance with
CAP 50-15 for easy recognition
from the air.
Did not have an adequate
number of gridded maps
ELT search was not performed in a timely manner.
Individuals assigned flight
line duties were not aware of
their job requirements.
Some aircrew chose to ignore instructions and searched
on their own.
Lack of ability for aircrews
to adequately navigate to and remain within the assigned search

Several aircraft assigned to
the same grid at the same time.
Insufficient horizontal
separation between aircraft in
same visual search area.
Debriefings were weak or
One communications frequency was over-used while two

others were used very little.
Aircraft were left unchocked
when chocks were available.
The greater part of the
problems identified stem from
poor mission preparation and
management. Proper use of a
good checklist would have
prevented costly mistakes and
omissions. Now is an excellent
time to reevaluate that
checklist, update those rosters,
mark vehicles, make up mission
folders, properly assign personnel, check 101 cards, inventory SAR assets, evaluate existing agreements, make new
agreements and most importantly, TRAIN PERSONNEL. It

"Safety" or a "safe operation" results from a frame of mind, an outlook, or
an attitude of zero accident safety and it can become a way of life. A good
safety record (or a bad one) has momentum, that is, when accidents begin to
happen they tend to continue to happen. Very few accidents grow out of a
single error or mistake, generally there will be a string of occurrences, several
factors, and to those who are aware and looking the pattern becomes a "road
sign," a "warning" indicating a trend which should be arrested or avoided.
Here in Wing Headquarters there are signs which may well indicate all is not
well. One may point to a period of few accidents and ask 'who needs improve.
ment, we are like perfect now." But we are not perfect.
Thirteen out of 22 units have not even reported a safety officer, and of
those who did, fewer reported safety meetings and only one pilot clinic. Re.
peated requests yield negative results Also, from the records (what few there
are) it's clear that all training and proficiency flight time is not being utilized as
it is intended.
The situation must be corrected if we expect to keep a good accident
record The alternative can only be a series of accidents which well could cripple
CAP effectiveness and possibly even its existence. What we must do is not
painful, but it does require work; but the organization, its objectives, and
mission performance are worth State and USAF sponsorship only with efficient,
safe production of the service!
We have got to "clean up our act" by:
(I) Unit commanders must appoint or review their Safety Officer to
assure an aggressive, knowledgeable person in in the position. He/she must also
inspire good productive activity and praise good work.
(2) Unit Safety Officers must get involved and hold or arrange pilot/
membership safety, activities; one meeting per quarter is not unreasonAhi~ 'n~=,,

(3) Unit Safety and Operations Officers must review the training and
pilot proficiency flying, when necessary arrange for pilot clinics (one per year
for each aircraft) and brief the commander on theii findings and activities.
(4) Safety and Operations personnel must work together to correct
unsafe conditions, oversee flight training and proficiency, process Safety Im.
provement Reports and Hazardous Condition Reports to integrate the entire
effort and inform their unit commanders when any condition is discovered
which they cannot correct or is significant.
(5) Everyone in the unit, from the commander to the newest member,
should know that he/she is a vital part of the unit safety program and must be
encouraged to find problems and make them known.
(6) The commander is accountable for activities of the entire unit, but

it's at least close to what it's supposed to do. Every one of us has his/her own
success and needs someone to encourage and praise him/her and point out go~
and standards.
Let me ask each and every one of you to get behind the safety program and
volunteer to assist your commander and safety officer. Do your part with
meeting preparation, safety articles, encourage others to participate, stay alert
for hazardous conditions, and let others know what you've found. How many

Our ground rescue program utilizes four vehicles. Two are fully
equipped first responder trucks. One other is a crew cab transport
and the other a four-wheel drive vehicle for off-road access.
Trained cadets comprise the ground teams and are led by
qualified senior officers. The ground teams work primarily in
rescue and recovery of victims, ground interrogation, crash site
security, and ELT tracking. The squadron also maintains a scuba
team for underwater recovery.
Because of the 111th's reputation for professionalism and rapid
response, the squadron has been integrated into the Charlotte
emergency services plans by city and county governments. Under
the Charlotte area disaster plan, the 111th is a first responder for
aircraft accidents along with police, fire, ambulance, and rescue
services. The Civil Air Patrol role is primarily crash site
security, victim recovery, and site marking and gridding of
wreckage. The squadron is also responsible for tracking ELT
signals on and off Douglas Municipal Airport in the greater
Charlotte area.
The lllth participates with other emergency services agencies
in the Airport Safety and Security Committee, which plans
emergency response to aircraft situations in the Charlotte
vicinity. Bondurant recently completed a term as chairman of
that committee.

DUTY OFFICER Ist Lt. Eric Karnes briefs aircrew members, 1st Lt. Stephen

A unique addition to the lllth emergency services capability is
the use of a TRS-80 computer. The computer program allows a
mission coordinator to concentrate his efforts in the most
probable areas of detection, based on factors such as weather,
aircraft performance, terrain, and flight plan. The computer
program also includes unit availabilities. The squadron also uses
the computer for administration and financial records and
systems. The computer program has been offered to North
Carolina Wing for use on any mission, but presently, is used only

That is above all our major purpose for existing.
"We should also remember the importance of cadets. Seniors
have a great responsibility here also, as we may mold an involved, decent citizen or create an apathetic and bored one. The

"Performance in emergency services demands
professionalism. In Civil Air Patrol, professionalism is created
through training and attitude. If we always realize that we have
the responsibility for life or death in our hands we will be better
pilots, better observers, better ground team members, and better
mission staffers.
"We especially need to look at our procedures and our
equipment. Alerting needs to be quick. Response must be effective. If our vehicles or radios are inadequate, don't just sulk.
Approach your community leaders and tell them what you can do
and what you need. You'll be surprised at the response. Be
prepared, and when you act, be safe and be professional.
"Use cadets properly. Offer them meaningful training opportunities. Use their skills on missions. Give them a sense of purpose and a pride in their unit in particular and Civil Air Patrol in
general. Require excellence in your cadets. Live up to the
regulations and standards on grooming and dress codes and require your seniors to do likewise. Unless we act like
professionals, Civil Air Patrol members will not be treated with
respect by other emergency services agencies or by the Air Force.
"Pride and performance are the prime ingredients in success
for any Civil Air Patrol squadron, be it in Charlotte or Cheyenne.
Squadrons of distinction are formed by the concentrated work of
all members, cadets and seniors. Let the people in your community know what you do, and do it well."

Pilot's Lifetime Service Continues
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Most
people might think the maximum service a man owes his
country and the individuals
around him is two or three years
in military service during a
national crisis. But for Lt. Col.
William Beckler of the
Tennessee Wing, his service has
lasted more than 37 years.
Beckler's participation in
helping people began in January,
1942, when he joined the CAP a
few weeks after it was formed,
and spanned a distinguished
career in the U.S. Air Force.
A boyhood fascination with
airplanes was the reason
Beckler joined the CAP. In the
beginnings of the organization in
Knoxville, members flew as
civilians out of McGhee/Tyson
Airport. Beckler, dressed in
CAP uniform, said early CAP
members patrolled TVA transmission lines, helped spot fires
and occasionally flew blood or
plasma to the scene of emergencies.
Patrolling the coast for submarines was another duty of the
CAP during World War It, he
says. The planes would fly a few
miles off the coast and try to
spot enemy submarines that
might try to land saboteurs or
shell the coast. Actual spotting
did occur on occasions and the
CAP would alert Civil Defense to
take action.
The CAP also worked in coordination with Civil Defense in
preparation for disasters.

Practice missions were flown
to report simulated flood
sightings, dam breakings and
checks on radiation levels in the
air in case of nuclear disasters,
Beckler says.
Along with constant patrols,
security was tightened and
suspicion was rampant. For this
reason, no aircraft was allowed
to fly over Oak Ridge, Tenn., due
to the work in the nuclear field
conducted there.
I-le recalls a personal run-in he
had with the heightened
security. I-le was forced to make
an emergency landing while he
was a member of the CAP
I though he was not on a CAP
mission at the time) in an open
field in Birmingham, Ala. When
the aircraft stopped, the
diminutive Beckler found
himself surrounded by three or
four Birmingham police cars
with the officers wondering what
he was doing there.
True to the Volunteer Spirit,
when the clouds of war began to
appear on the horizon, Beckler
volunteered in the U.S. Army Air
Corps as an aviation cadet. He
was assigned to a classification
center at Nashville where he
was shipped to pilot training.
I-~e-flight took him to Maxwell
AFB, Ala., headquarters of the
U.S Air Corps Southeast Training Command, where one of his
fondest memories is "The
Burma Road," a notorious obstacle course known to many
pilots of that era. Then it was on
to fighter pilot training in St.

MEMENTOS -- Lt. Col. William Beckler of the Tennessee Wing displays some of his World
War II mementos. Beckler is one of the charter members, having joined the organization in
January 1942, just a few weeks after it was formed.
Petersburg, Fla., where he flew
the Curtis P-40 Warhawk, made
famous by its distinct
appearance with shark's teeth
around the nose.
Beckler's first combat assignment came in 1944 at the Chercola Air Base in Naples, Italy, he
says, straining to remember the
name. Not far from the base was
the legendary volcano Mount
Vesuvius, and within a month
after his arrival at the base, the
volcano erupted.
In order to protect the aircraft, each night after flying a
mission the pilots of Chercola
would land their aircraft at a
nearby air base and leave them
there overnight. Then in the
morning, the pilots would go
back to that base and take the
planes back to Chercola and fly
missions from there.
Beckler flew over 100 missions
into Axis-held territories in
Northern Italy while holding the
rank of first lieutenant. One instance he recalls requiredbombing targets within 100 yards of
allied troops occupying the Anzio
oeav,-,eau. Such missions r e quired precise flying and there
were never any mishaps.
One of his closest calls

overseas came when his group of
fighter-bombers was assigned to
strafe an airport near Milan,
Italy. Beckler's plane, a P-47
~arrying 2,500 lb. bombs, flew so
low during the mission that the
flack towers surrounding the installation were shooting down at
him, he says. In the attack, his
plane took a 20 mm round in the
rear and he was forced to return
to his base.
One of Beckler's friends in the
war was not as fortunate during
a similar attack, he says.
His friend, flying a low pass
while strafing a vehicle convoy,
was blown up from the explosion
which followed his hit on the
target even though his aircraft
was traveling over 400 mph at
the time. No restrictions were
ever placed on how low an aircraft should fly while performing a strafing mission, Beckler
notes. It was left completely to
the pilot's discretion.
One of the most memorable
events in Beckler's service came
on a task at Sette Bagni, Italy, on
April 8, 1944. The squadron was
assigned to bomb a railroad
station, but the squadron leader
had to break formation. Beckler
responded to the emergency by

taking command of the mission
and leading the squadron in its
bombing runs which destroyed
the raft station.
The Distinguished Fl~ifl'g
Cross was presented to him for
his quick action. It reads that he
"displayed great courage and
superior flying ability" in
leading his flight and escorting
his leader back to the base
Beckler returned to the states
in August 1945 at the conclusion
of the war, resuming his participation in the CAP and joining
the Air Force reserves.
In addition to his World War II
honors, Beckler holds the CAP
Exceptional Service Award for
overall participation in CAP activities and longterm membership.
In the early days of the CAP
most of the people who joined
did so because of patriotism and
a desire to participate in the
nation's defense, Beckler said.
Today, its members are even
more dedicated.
Better equipment, organization and efficiency are other
ways in which the CAP of today
differs from the CAP of the
1940s, Beckler says while
chomping on an unlit cigar.

Peacetime Radiation Monitoring Is Different
What is CAP's role during a
peacetime radiological incident?
Is the radiological monitoring
equipment generally available to
the CAP usable during a
peacetime incident? What is the
CAP "policy" concerning involvement in peacetime
radiological incidents?
In this second column I'll try
to answer these questions and
give you an insight into the real
world of peacetime radiological
First, let me say that
peacetime radiological monitoring is a different problem than
wartime radiation monitoring.
After a nuclear attack, we are
concerned with detecting large
concentrations of gamma
radiation. The airborne equipment currently available to
CAP, through the state CD ofrice, can obtain accurate gamma
radiation levels i1 llown at a constant altitude above the ground
on a prescribed track. The in-

struments were designed to
serve this purpose,
The radiological tasks needed
during a peacetime incident are
not so clear-cut. Depending upon
the nature of the incident, you
may encounter gamma, and/or
beta, and/or aipha radiation in
varying concentrations. While
the equipment current~ly
available to CAP may (with an
excellent operator) be able to
detect some of the higher level
gamma concentrations, it cannot accurately measure the
radiation level. Further, the
gamma radiation may not be the
w o r s t d a n g e r. P o s s i b l y a
dangerous level of alpha and/or
b~ta radiation could be present
but currently available equipment would not be able to detect
thehazard. One of the peacetime
radiological monitoring tasks
could be plotting the movement
of the plume (re-leased gases
with possible radiological
hazards.) The detection of this
plume is critical and requires
very sensitive equipment
operated by highly qualified per-

sonnel. Generally, CAP does not
have the proper equipment nor
the properlytrainedpersonnelto
perform peacetime radiological
monitoring tasks.
State and local agencies have
the responsibility for peacetime
monitoring. And the federal
government, specifically the
Nuclear Regulatory Commission
(NRC) an-d t-he Federal
Emergency Management
Agency (FEMA), assist state
and local officials develop plans
to cope with peacetime
radiological incidents,
FEMA and NRC have recently
signed a memorandum of understanding which gives FEMA the

responsibility for assisting the
states, and reviewing state and
local plans. FEMA will be
reviewing the plans for aU states
with nuclear power plants during
the next few months,
What does this mean to the
CAP? In some states CAP has
agreements which may involve
peacetime radiological
monitoring. Because this is a
fairly new problem some individuals, in and out of CAP, are
not fully aware of all the
ramifications. CAP must insure
that all parties are aware of
C A P' s c a p a b i 1 i t i e s a n d
limitations. Therefore in
December 1979 the National Executive Committee reviewed the
problem and came up with a set
of policy statements concerning
CAP's involvement in peacetime
radiological incidents. A copy of
this policy was sent to each wing
commander Jan. 25, 1980.
Highlights of the policy are:
a. Prior to any activity, CAP
must have a comprehensive
agreement with the state office
responsible for peacetime

radiological incidents. (The
agreement should provide for insurance coverage, training, and
other specifics).
b. CAP is a support agency
which may assist state and local
authorities in many ways.
c. Personnel actually performing a monitoring function must
use proper equipment, be
thoroughly trained in its
operation, and have extensive
knowledge of radiation hazards.
d. CAP willnotacceptresponsibility for advising state or
local officials concerning the
health hazards associated with a
If you are involved with
peacetime radiological monitoring see your wing commander
for a copy of the CAP policy concerning this subject. There is a
role for CAP in this area but
there are many things to be considereal. The wing and region
commanders, and the USAF
liaison structure are available to
help work out agreements and
solve any problems you may encounter.

H O LY O K E , M a s s . - Westover Cadet Sq. (MassachuSetts Wing) has developed a
new training technique for its
Phase I and Phase II cadets.
Their Radio Shack TRS-80 computer is being used as a programmed learning device to
teach chain of command,
customs and courtesies, rank
and insignia, sg~a~iron policies,
and the Cadet Program.
Cadets are scheduled to use
the computer during the regalar
meeting times. The aerospace
education officer demonstrates
how to load the programs and
how to use the keyboard to
answer questions. Cadets can
operate the computer proficiently in about 15 minutes.
Once instructed, the cadet
answers each multiple choice
question as it appears on the
screen. The computer tells him
whether the answer is right or
wrong. If he is wrong, he
attempts to answer the same
question again.
Each subject or chapter has
three programs of varying difficulty. Each one takes approximately 15 minutes to complete.
When all three programs are
completed, the cadet is debriefed,and allowed to take the
written exam within two weeks.
The results of this program
are that learning takes place
f a s t e r, s u b j e c t r e t e n t i o n i s
greater, and cadet interest is
higher. The time between contract completions has been
reduced and cadet retention has
been increased.
The TRS-80 is as versatile as
its programmer, says squadron
m e m b e r K e v i n We l c h . T h e
machine can be used for finance,
rosters and probabilities of
detection for emergency services, for example.
The Westover unit's machine
is a Level 14K Model.

for the school this year is 70

basis. The closing date for
