Since the cadet program became

have completed all requirements
to earn this award.
Those cadets who have earned
the award are:
Douglas C. Roach, presently on
active duty with the United States
Air Force and the only man ever
to earn the Falcon Award.

physics student at the New Orleans
campus, Louisiana State University.
These five cadets make up one
of the most elite groups in the
entire Civil Air Patrol cadet membership. Only through extremely
hard work and personal determination have these cadets earned such
high honors.
Roach is the first cadet to earn
the Falcon Award. He entered the
Civil Air Patrol in 1957 and by
1964 had traveled more than 35,000
miles participating in about 125
different CAP events.
He also found time to earn his
CAP Pilot rating. Roach attended
six CAP encampments and held

Patrol members from the Kansas Wing with military instruction but
offered them a first hand look at this old U.S. Army post.
The history of Fort Riley dates back to the early history of the
United States and the population spread to the west. The fort served
as an outpost from the famed Fort Leavenworth. Its colorful history
grew with the development of Kansas as a state.

horses retired from mili(ary service, either from age or evolution.
The cadets also visited the old blacksmith shop, inspected early

Once these young students crack

one teacher commented. "They
will read additional material, some

a good reason to believe some students, boys and girls alike, delight

As students progress, subject

ELMHURST, lll.--Once in a long,
long time, a book comes along

AIR MAIL" is one of these books.
The "SAGA" is an authoritative,
accurate and complete history of
the beginning of modern air transportation, by the men who made
the system work. It is also fascinating reading.
It has 127 pages and more than
375 photographs, most of them
culled from members'" private col
lections and never before published.

Rocketry Assembly
SHEBOYGAN Composite Squadron, Wisconsin Wing, has started an extensive model rocketry class
among the cadets. The cadets assemble the models under the leadership of seniors and then fire
them at the nearby county Memorial Airport. Here, after weeks of work, a successful launch is
made with all "systems go."
( A l l p h o t o s b y L t . L u G i e f e r, C A P )

FIRING the rocketry is only half the job. The cadets assemble
the model kits under the leadership of seniors. The rockets
must be put together correctly or many hours of work is destroyed on the launch pad.


Begin Countdown
DURING the countdown, cadets and senior advisors check the fusing and electrical circuits to insure a good launch. Not only is proper launch technique stressed, but also the important ground
and rocket safety.

BEFORE THE cadets ever begin work on the model rockets, instructors teach the theory behind the launch. Each cadet must
thoroughly understand the rocket before he moves to the assembly and firing phases of the program.
