CAP is many things. It is first and foremost a flying

to public service; it is an organization devoted in a very

but always, CAP is an integral part of the local community

one, but in many instances he can be the
focal point for bringing the entire resources

ALPA SPONSORS CAP -- Members of Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA) Council 33 in Denver, Colo., who have given more than
just "lip service" to the Aurora Composite Squadron for many years,
began sponsoring the Colorado Wing last year. United Air Lines has
provided space for the squadron to meet for several years. Last year
council members contributed $466 in cash and two hours of flight
time. The money was used to buy uniforms, books and equipment for
cadets..A private pilot scholarship is now being planned by council
members and cadet orientation and familiarization flights are being
provided in a small airplane partially purchased by the council in
conjunction with other CAP supporters in the Aurora area.

turned over 30,000 square feet of
display area with the necessary
manpower and equipment to bring
the exhibit into being.
A major portion of the exhibit
consisted of NASA displays including a full scale Mercury capsule
that was fully automated, with a
profusion of explanatory panels
covering all phases of the Mercury
Of particular interest was a full
slze mock-up complete with spaceman of both the fore and aft sections of the Mercury capsule. One
spectator remarked after seeing
the display "the astronaut doesn't
ride the capsule, he wears it."
To emphasize the aerospace
technology within our midst the

George is a true to life mannequin complete with a single en.
vironmental space suit.
This suit was developed in part
by the US Energy Co., for NASA.
George was so startling in his silver space suit he was placed next
to the CAP information booth.
Other sections of the aerospace
displays covered sub-orbital flights, i
orbital flights, human factors, environmental sequences, programruing of orbital flights and others.

LAST MONTH we showed our readers what two cute Florida
Wing cadets looked like as "'astro-nots". Now we would like
everyone to see what cadets Theresa Fradette, left, and Peggy
O'Neal look like without the space suit. The two cadets were
part of the TyndalLCadet Squadron that visited the Physiological
Training Center at Tyndall Air Force Base.

Arkansas Unit Commander
Honored for Military Duty
Air Force sergeant here who also
~erves as a Civil Air Patrol captain and squadron commander of
the Jacksonville Composite Squadron, Arkansas Wing, has been selected as Airman of the Year here.
TSgt. William G. Tack, USAF,
of the 308th Strategic Missile
Wing, was named to the award
in competition with other outstanding noncommissioned officers
from the base.
Sergeant Tack is a 15-year veteran of the Air Force and a twoyear veteran of the Jacksonville
squadron. He attended Heidelburg, College, Tiffin, Ohio, and
Arkansas Polytechnic College, Russellville, Ark.
The sergeant expects to receive
his B.A. degree in the near future.
Sergeant Tack is assigned to the
Missile Support Branch in management procedures which entails
the controling of inspection, servicing and repairing of safety
breathing apparatus. In addition,
the sergeant's job includes working with propellent handling
equipment such as self-contained
breathing air and air conditioning
units within sealed crew suits
which protect propellent specialtsts from the toxic vapors, acids
and hazardous propellents encountered in Titan II missile loading
and unloading and nitrogen servicing of propellent tanks.
One of the most critical tasks

performed under his supervision
is the mixing of cryogenics which
are stored and serviced at temperatures approximately 300 degrees
below zero.
This mixture of liquid nitrogen
and liquid oxygen is proportioned
to provide a balanced breathing
mixture when it is converted to
gas by a back-pack insidethe selfcontained suits.

MAY, 1966


According to Colonel Sullivan,
308th Strategic Missile Wing commander, "It is without question
t h a t S e r g e a n t Ta c k i s t r u l y a n
outstanding airman. His performance and participation and individual effort, duty, loyalty to the
unit, acceptance of responsibility
to the customs of the service and
community life exceed all expectations."

"that fool" was his daughter.

would help her reach that goal.
In November of 1965, while attending the University of Houston,

Donna took her first step toward

The former CAP cadet began her
training in courses basically designed to prepare a girl for the
duties and responsibilities of a

working hours and schedules.
IN ADDITION, personal grooming and appearance standards were
