U.S. Law Covers CAP Members
Prior to 1956 there were no
provisions for compensation for
those dedicated Civil Air Patrol
members who were injured or
killed while participating in Air
Force requested missions. Then
in 1956, Congress enacted Public
Law 955 (5USC814), commonly
known as the "CAP Compensation Act."
This law extended the benefits
of the Federal Employees'
Compensation Act to cover Civil
Air Patrol senior members
while acting in the scope of their
duties while performing Air
Force requested missions. The
intent of the Congress was to afford the volunteer Civil Air
Patrol senior member the feeling of security gained in the

It was not the intent of the
Congress to assume the responsibility of an individual to
provide for his family by his own
private insurance programs, but
to provide certain benefits for
those dedicated Americans who
suffered loss in the service of
their country, while performing
humanitarian missions at the re-


quest of the Air Force.
Among the most frequently
asked questions are the
Q. When does FECA apply?
A. Senior members are eligible for benefits when they are injured and their beneficiaries are
eligible for benefits should they
be killed, if such death.0r injury


resulted from performance of
authorized service, or travel to
and from such service.
Q. What are the time limits of
A. Each Air Force-authorized
mission is given a definite
starting and closing time. Performance of duty must be within
those time limits.

A. No, only senior members.
Cadets, CAP Associate
Members, and non-CAP
members are not covered.
Q. Are senior members
covered under FECA while performing CAP missions?
A. No, senior members performing on Civil Air Patrol activities which are not a part of an
Air Force-requested mission are
not covered..
Q. What agency processes and
approves FECA claims?

Dr. John L. McLucas, FAA
administrator, presented the
award to Civil Air Patrol in a
ceremony in November here
at FAA headquarters. In his

McLucas, who was previously Secretary of the Air Force,
stressed the importance and
effectiveness of close

cooperation between the FAA
and CAP in promoting
general aviation.
He stressed CAP's service
to general aviation through
its various missions, much of
which is unknown on the part
of the genral public. He also
noted FAA's support of Civil
Air Patrol through the FAA
Cadet Orientation Program
conducted each year at
Oklahoma City.

Five CAP Staft Colleges Likely This Year
MAXWELL AFB, Ala.--Civil
Air Patrol will conduct several
staff colleges and other senior
member courses next summer,
according to officials here at
National Headquarters.
The support and enthusiasm
for this educational program
was called "truly significant"
and "a strong indication of desire
for management training."
Three staff colleges are firm
this year. These will be the
National Staff College here at
Maxwell AFB; the Eastern Staff
College at Randolph-Macon
College, Ashland, Va.; and the
Central Staff College at
B e r g s t r o m A F B , Te x . Tw o
others--the Southern and
Western Staff Colleges--are
planned, with details to be announced later.
The purpose of all the staff
colleges is to prepare selected
senior member commanders to
execute better the delegated and

implied duties and responsibilities. To achieve this purpose, the staff college
curriculum is divided into four
major topical areas: Communications Skills, Leadership,
Management, and CAP Problem
solving at unit level. The training at all of them is essentially
the same.
The 10th annual National Staff
College here at Maxwell is
scheduled June 20°29. The 10-day
program will open Monday morning, June 20, and will conclude
Wednesday evening, June 29,
with the traditional dining-out
and graduation banquet.
The staff will be composed of
Air Force Reservists and
selected CAP senior members
with Lt. Col. Ralph R. Harris,
USAFR, as course director.
Mrs. Florence D. Tucker is
National Headquarters project
officer. The course at Maxwell
will include student participa-

tion in Project X, a field exercise in leadership and group
behavior which is part of the Air
Force Squadron Officer School's
resident program.
The cost per student at the
Maxwell staff college is approximately $75, which includes
meals, banquet, BOQ and
registration fee.
The Eastern Staff College at
Ashland, Va., is scheduled June
19-25. The cost, including meals,
billeting and registration fee, is
$80 per student. Course director

and project officer is Maj. Barbara Morris, CAP, who is deputy
chief of staff for senior
programs in the Middle East
Region. Those wishing to attend
this staff college should write
her at: 10316 Armory Avenue,
Kensington, Md. 20795. The
curriculum cori'dinator will be
CAP Lt. Col. Carrol Kline.
The Central Staff College at
Bergstrom AFB, Austin, 'rex., is
also scheduled June 19-25. The
cost, including meals, BOQ and
registration fee, is approximately $65 per student, Project ofricer and director will be Maj.
Bob Bess, USAFR, P.O. Box 543,
Spring, Tex. 77373. Write him if
you plan to attend this staff
college. A Project X exercise
will also be a feature at this one.
The senior member officer
and warrant officer attendees at
all three staff colleges will undergo intensified programs of
lectures, seminars, field ac-

tivities, and social affairs.
Arrangements are under way for
students at the staff colleges to
receive optional college credit
for staff college completion.
Students desiring credit will be
able to enroll with the participating college or university.
Contact your project officer for
additional information.
Base application eligibility,
that is, senior member warrant
officer grade at the time of
application, remains the same.
A new requirement is one year
minimum active CAP
membership as of the starting
date of the staff college.
Those wishing to attend a staff
college must submit their
applications on CAP Form 17,
Application for Senior Member
Activities, dated January 1974.

California Wing SchoolTrains For Leadership
COSTA MESA, Calif.--The
California Wing's third Commanders School, held recently
here at the Air National Guard
station, has brought the number
of personnel trained in this field
to 256.
The first two schools were
limited to commanders and
deputy commanders, but the
third was open to any interested
member who may, in the future,
become a commander. So,
California now has 28 future
commanders with background
and training to serve.
"This has been an outstanding
ex~orience for all of the instructors, too," Maj. Jim Beggins,
team leader for the project,
stated. "When we find people
who really want to learn, it's

objectives are to familiarize unit
commanders with the
appropriate function of each
staff position in a unit. Instructors are experienced CAP staff
officers, usually at wing or

Honors Gen. Spaatz

MEMORIAL--Gen. David C. Jones, Air Force chief of staff,
presents Mrs. Carl Spaatz a picture of the commemorative
plaque and visitor's overlook at the Air Force Academy. The
plaque was dedicated recently to the memory of Mrs.
Spaatz' husband, the late Gen. Carl A. Spaatz. (USAF Photo)

Colo.--A scenic overlook here at
the Air Force Academy was
dedicated recently to the
memory of Gen. Carl A.
"Tooey" Spaatz, first Chief of
Staff of the Air Force and also
first chairman of the National
Board of Civil Air Patrol.
Gen. David C. Jones, Air
Force chief of staff, presided
over the ceremony which many
retired and current Air Force
leaders attended.
The overlook commands a
splendid view of the cadet area
at the academy along the Front
Range of the Rocky Mountains.
It will be open to tourists who
visit the academy.
Mrs. Ruth Spaatz, widow of
the air power leader of World
War II, was present for the
ceremony, along with her two
daughters, Mrs. Steven Nagel
and Mrs. Francis Thomas, and

her granddaugher, Miss Wayne
Following his remarks
memorializing the famed flier,
Gen. Jones presented Mrs.
Spaatz with a framed picture of
the overlook area.
Planted with indigenous trees,
shrubs and plants to harmonize
with the foothill setting, the
overlook area will provide a permanent memorial. An outdoor
setting was chosen in recognition of Gen. Spaatz' long interest
in the outdoors and wildlife.
The expenses of planning,
landscaping and preparing the
site were financed by private
contributions. Civil Air Patrol
donated funds for this purpose.
A West Point graduate, Gen.
Spaatz attended Aviation School
at San Diego and won his pilot
wings in 1915. He served in
France during World War I and
shot down three German planes.

In the years between World
Wars I and II, he was a pioneer
in promoting aviation for commercial as well as military uses.
He reached his peak of fame
during World War II when he
was commander of all U.S.
strategic forces in Europe. After
Germany's defeat, he was
ordered to the Pacific to serve
as commander of all U.S.
strategic forces in that area.
When the Department of the
Air Force was created in 1947, he
served as first Air Force Chief of
Staff. He retired in 1948. Following his retirement, he became
the first chairman of the
National Board of Civil Air
Patrol. CAP had, at that time,
just become an auxiliary of the
Air Force. He served with Civil
Air Patrol until 1960.
Gen. Spaatz died in 1974 and is
buried in the cemetery at the Air
Force Academy.

Executive Director's Comments

Logistics' Many Functions
In the militarY service, the
logistics system provides all
supplies, equipment, facilities,
real estate, utilities, fuel,
maintenance for all systems,
transportation of people and
things, and an accounting and
inspection system to safeguard
and control these valuable
The 01d question, "Which
comes first, the
chicken or the
egg?" can be
aptly applied to
the field of logistics, especially
as concerns the
creation and support of a CAP
unit. Naturally, you must first
have people to establish a CAP
unit but your acquisition of
equipment, supplies and facilities in which to house the people
and provide the tools of their
trade must follow closely. It is
noteworthy that CAP happens
to be engaged in missions which
require the most expensive
equipment, i.e., aircraft,

communications gear and
This month I would like to
address briefly one of the
logistic functions. This year we
have acquired 40 aircraft from
DOD surplus, but acquisition is
only the first on many steps
taken before an aircraft joins
the corporate fleet. For example, CAP must accept the
aircraft, find a pilot to ferry it
to the maintenance site, wait
for an FAA inspector to preinspect the aircraft for airworthiness, send in reams of
forms and paperwork to
National Headquarters, and
find the money to modify and
certify the aircraft to civilian
standards. Past experience has
shown us that if wings or local
units attempt this acceptance
and certification process, excessive delay is experienced
and sometimes excessive
dollars expended.
During 1976, National Headquarters assumed the majority
of these responsibilities by

arranging for picking up aircraft from DOD locations,
delivering to contracted
maintenance facilities, arranging for FAA inspections and
certifications, and paying for
all associated maintenance and
transportation costs. In return,
CAP wings turned in a
previously identified corporate
aircraft, preferably an excess
DOD type, which National
Headquarters sells to pay for
modification" and related expenses. Any funds remaining
from aircraft sales after these
expenses have been paid were
deposited in National Headquarters Aircraft Maintenance
and Procurement Fund.
Additionally, at the national
level we are doing everything
possible to bring into being the
New Aircraft Buy Program
which will lead to a wellequipped, corporate-owned aircraft fleet in the foreseeable
future. Since federally appropriated funds are not authorized
for procuring CAP equipment

We have asked for broader
authorities from higher headquarters in order to expand
support and provide better
quality equipment requiring
less CAP expenditure of funds
to repair and maintain. We
have been successful in some
areas and unsuccessful in
others. I can assure all CAP
members that we will never
quit trying to improve USAF
and DOD logistics support. I will
continue asking CAP leaders'
and the general membership's
support of our efforts to fully
equip CAP with better items of
equipment needed for accomplishment of approved
CAP programs.

National Commander's Comments

T h e T h i r d Mission?
Brig. Gen. Thomas C. Casaday, CAP
National Commander

Late last summer, I attended
a briefing given by Gen. Miller
and his staff to Lt. Gen. Raymond B. Furlong, commander
of Air University. This was the
first in a series of briefings
presented to Gen. Furlong
since CAP-USAF became a
part of the Air University command.
The briefing
was tiffed
space Education:
The Third Mission." The title
made me ill at
ease because I
had established
a personal priority for aerospace education and,
frankly, it wasn't the last of
three on my list--it was one of
three equals.
As the briefing progressed,
the narrative and the data
showed why CAP had, for all
intents and purposes, placed
aerospace education in the
third position. From his
questions, Gen. Furlong
seemed very interested,
especially in the Aerospace
Education Workshop Program.
The briefing was successful but
it left me with a touch of guilt
and the need to act.

holidays. Persons desiring to get
messages or other traffic into
wing headquarters may find this
a convenient means to do so.
The MCC incorporates many
new ideas which offer the wing
commander and his staff several
unique advantages which have
heretofore been unavailable. The
entire mission can be displayed
on vertical plotting boards
depicting mission activity
anywhere in the state.
Information such as the location of airdraft and mobile units,
equipment and personnel status,
and unit equipment and personnel availability are just a few
of the items that are updated
constantly and displayed continuously for the use of key staff
members. In addition, weather
data for all of the key airports
within the states is displayed and
revised on a hourly basis.
The center is normally manned by two seniors and two
cadets. The cadets monitor radio
messages and perform many
other duties on a routine basis.
One of the seniors remains at the
center with the cadet duty shift
while the other is either present
at the center or immediately
available by means of a radio
paging system. An IFR-rated
pilot and an aircraft are also
maintained on a 15-minute recall

Seven people died recently in the crash of a civilian
twin engine aircraft. Weather was a factor in the
accident. The pilot's commlmication with controllers
revealed he was accumulating structural ice, had engine
problems, and was experiencing "severe vibrations.,,
He requested information on nearby fields, weather
data, and radar vectors. After an unsuccessful VOR
approach at one airport due to weather below minimums,

or his or her representative must
complete and submit the claim
[onus required by the Department of Labor. A list of these
forms and a description of each
form is contained in CAPR 112-8.
The initial claims form is the CA
1 and 2. An official report of the
accident must accompany these
claims forms. Accidents are
reported on CAP Form 78 and
the investigation of the accident
is reported on CAP Form 79.
It is important for wing commanders to insure that accidents
are promptly reported on these
forms and copies furnished to
the injured senior member or his
representative. It is also important for wing commanders to insure that adequate numbers of
the blank forms CA 1 through CA
5 are on hand in various
locations throughout his wing, so
that they can be readily supplied
to the claimant. In addition,
Federal civilian personnel offices including those at Air
Force installations have supplies
of these forms.
Step 2. Portions of CA Form 1
or 2 require the completion by
the appropriate supervisor.
Wing commanders must insure
that their personnel are familiar
with the form and in cases of injury or 'death, their portion of
such forms are completed
promptly. Thereafter, forms
must be mailed promptly to the
Department of Labor.
Generally, the Department of
Labor (OWCP) will furnish any
additional forms that are
necessary for completion of the
claim. It would be helpful to
have available CA Forms 16 or
20, "Attending Physician's
Report," in any injury case.
Having these completed as rapidly as possible will expedite
processing of claims.
Step 3. A fully documented
claim file is submitted by the
applicant directly to:
Office of Workers'
Compensation Programs
U.S. Department of Labor

200 Constitution Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20211.
Q. Who is responsible for submitring a claim?
A. The completion and submission of all the required forms are
the responsibility of the claimant or his representative;
however, the wing commander
and his staff are responsible for
every assistance needed to expedite completion and filing.
Q. What documents must accompany the CA1 and 2 form?
A. Official documents or a cerrifled statement that the person
was a volunteer civilian member
of CAP other than a cadet at the
time of the injury; a certified
"statement by the USAF-CAP
liaison officer stating that the
person injured or killed was at
the time of the incident a
member of Civil Air Patrol other
than a cadet and that to the best

of his belief, the records and
statements attached to the investigation are correct; a copy
of the written Air Force mission
authorization; a copy of the Civil
Air Patrol mission order; copies
of all hospital and medical bills.
Q. What additional information is required in the event of a
A. In addition to the CA 1, CAP
Forms 78 and 79, copies of the

Q. Who determines eligibility?

BELL-RINGERS--CAP Cadets Steve Everett and
Genevieve Kelley ring a replica of the Liberty Bell while
Denise Sturn, in traditional dress, stands by. The bell was on
a tour around the Washington, D. C., area at the time and
will eventually be placed in Ft. Lincoln Cemetery in
Brentwood, Md. The cadets, from the Col. V. I. Grissom
Cadet Sq. in the National Capital Wing, saw the bell during
one of their CAP activities.

A. OWCP determines the
eligibility of a claim. The
amount of compensation is
determined by OWCP, and in the
case of Civil Air Patrol senior
members, is based on a deemed
monthly pay of $300.
Q. What benefits are available
to an injured senior member?
A. $200 per month during a
total disability plus $25 per
month while the member has
one or more eligible dependents.
Q. What compensation is
available in the event of the
death of a senior member?
A. For the widow or widower $135 per month. If the member
died insured by Social Security,
$135 per month with no additional payments for children.
If no Social Security, $120 per
month plus $45 per month for
each dependent child.
Q. Is there h publication
available that explains this
A. Yes, CAPR 112-8 has been
published to give guidance in
preparing a claim form, and
describes in detail the coverage
available and a list of forms
p r e s c r i b e d b y O W C P. A d ditionally, the HQ CAP-USAF
Office of the Staff Judge Advocate will lend assistance at
any time as well as the USAFCAP liaison office in each wing.
These questions and answers
cover only a small area, but it
must be emphasized that claims
for compensation for disability
or death are processed by claims
examiners of OWCP whose duty
it is to apply the law to the facts
as reported, received or obtained upon investigation. The law
requires determination of a
claim with findings of fact and a
decision for or against the payment of compensation upon consideration of the claim presented
by the claimant, the report of the
official superior and the completion of such investigation as
OWCP may deem necessary.
The final authority in the determination of a claim is vested in
the Director of OWCP.
Compensation under FECA is

an exclusive remedy, that is, a
senior member when eligible for
compensation under this act cannot sue the United States government and recover damages for
the same accident. Also if the
senior member receives FECA
benefits and also sues a third
party, any recovery from that
third party must be used to reimburse the Department of Labor
for any FECA benefits paid.
In summary, care should be
exercised in preparing fully
documented claims. Written
notice of the injury must be
given to the official superior
within 30 days of the injury, or
the superior must have actual
knowledge of the injury. Claims
should be submitted promptly.
Requests for additional information from OWCP should be
answered immediately and as
fully as possible. Failure to do
any of these things could cause
unnecessary delay in paying the
claim and cause financial
hardship on the claimant.

Smilin' Jack Author
Pens Life's Story
CAP Col. Zack Mosley is a
charter member of Civil Air
Patrol who helped found the
organization. He is a veteran
pilot and flew with CAP's
Coastal Patrol during World War
II, earning for himself an Air
Medal for his civilian efforts.
He is also the author of the
world-famous cartoon strip,
"Smilin' Jack," an authentic
aviation adventure strip which
ran for 40 years. The strip, which
was retired in 1973, was beloved
by millions of aviation-minded
readers over the world.
Now Zack has told the story of
his years of flying and the
background story of "Smilin'
Jack" and how it came to be, his
adventures in aviation and in
producing the strip. He calls his
book "Brave Coward Zack."

Why does he call himself a
"brave coward?" Well, it seems
that, originally, he was afraid to
fly and only learned in order to
make his strip authentic. But inL
later years, he flew hundreds of
thousands of miles in his own
airplanes and commercially as
he travelled to nearly all parts of
the world, gathering background
material for "Smilin' Jack."
The book is available at the
CAP Bookstore at a discount
pr!ce to members. The regular
price is $6.95 plus 50 cents
postage. The Bookstore price to
members is $5.95 and the Bookstore will pay the postage. This
represents a saving of $1.50. The
book will be sent by U.S. Postal
Service, Fourth Class-Book Rate.

Deafness No Bar
To C a p t a i n ' s D r e a m
HUNTSVILLE, Ala.--Imagine
a world of silence. Think how difficult life would be without
sounds that are so much a part of
everyday living.
Herbert Lester lives in such a
world but has not let it stand in
his way in pursuing one of his
lifelong dreams -- flying. He has
been deaf since birth.
"Herb," as he is popularly
known, is a captain in the Civil
Air Patrol and serves as the information officer of the Rocket
City Senior Sq. here. He has held
a private pilot license for 26
years and the story of his life is
enough to help restore hope to
anyone faced with similar adversity.
Born in Bogalusa, La., Capt.
Lester spent 11 of the first 15
years of his life at Central Institute for the Deaf, a private
school in St. Louis, where he
learned to talk, read and write.
He also leaned lipreading which,
he explained, "is the ability to
understand people without interpreting their words
He graduated from public high
school in Ohio and attended
colleges in the Carolinas and
Rhode Island. He received his
degree in mechanical engineering at the Rhode Island School of
Design 'in Providence and was
later a part-time graduate student at Southern Methodist
University in Dallas.
Capt. Lester tried to enlist in
the Army Air Corps three times
but was rejected due to his
deafness. Still determined to be
of use to his country, he joined
the Spartanburg Civil Air Patrol
Sq. in South Carolina as a senior
member in 1945.

Members of the Spartanburg
Squadron taught him both basic
ground and air rules, and later
he earned a private pilot license.
After graduation from college,
he moved to Fort Worth, Tex.,
and transferred his CAP
membership to the Fort Worth
unit. He later served as financial
officer for the Texas Wing. Flying a good deal in Texas, he accumulated approximately 400
hours of flying time.
In 1961 he moved to Alabama

and is now an engineer for HaYes
International Corp. in Huntsville.
Life has been a struggle for
Capt. Lester, but he makes no
significant concessions to his
deafness. Once in a great while
you meet someone who has done
such an exceptional job of adjusting to a handicap that you
are left with the feeling that they
are a better person because of it.
Capt. Lester is that kind of

HIGHEST AWARD--Cadet Joel SignorellL right, a member
of the Downers Grove Comp Sq. (Illinois Wing) receives the
Gen. Carl A. Spaatz Award from Air Force Brig. Gen.
William P. Acker, deputy commanding general, U.S.
Military Enlistment Processing Command. The award is the
highest obtainable in the cadet program. Cadet Signorelli, a
licensed glider pilot, is the cadet executive officer in his unit
and has served in the past as squadron and flight leader.

On Sundown Patrol

Boaters I n Distress

Civil Air Patrol aircraft on sundown patrol assisted recently in
the rescue of two boats in distress off the shores of Long
Island. The aircraft was manned
by members of Nassau Comp.
Sq. of the Long Island Group,
New York Wing.
The sundown patrol, one of a
number of similar patrols which
CAP flies across the nation, is
flown along the busy waterways
the last two hours before sunset
on weekends and holiday periods
to spot and report any craft in
need of help.
In the early evening, the CAP
pilot, SM Ira A. Cohn of
Woodmere, N.Y., and observer,
1st. Lt. Robert L. Rabie of
Valley Stream, N.Y., left their
home base at Zahn's Airport and
started their patrol eastward.
off the north shore of Great
South Bay. Approaching Blue
Point, they spotted a boat in distress with four persons aboard.
One of them was waving a white
flag to attract attention.
Pilot Cohn dipped his wings to
acknowledge that the boat had
been seen and radioed the New
York Flight Service St~Uc~ for

help. He continued circling the
distressed vessel and, about 10
minutes later, a large cabin
cruiser approached the scene.
The rescue craft passed a line to
the distressed vessel and took it
under tow while the CAP air
crew continued their patrol.
The patrol continued to
Bellport Bay and turned
eastward off the south shore of
Great South Bay. As the light
was fading from the sky, the
CAP crew spotted a small boat
with one person aboard frantically waving a flashlight.
The CAP crew turned on all

the airplane's lights to
acknowledge that the stricken
boat had been seen and again
radioed for help. A few minutes
later, a passing fishing boat
signalled that the stricken craft
had been seen and soon had it under tow.
The CAP crew turned
homeward and thanked the
Flight Service Station for its
help in the two rescues. The
plane touched down at Zahn's
Airport as the sun faded from
sight. Aboard the plane was a
tired but gratified crew.

These comments were made
by a young Civil Air Patrol cadet
from me 355tb Cadet Sq.
(Arizona Wing) recently while
discussing his unit's participation in a unique program under
which they are being sponsored
by the Air Force's 355th Tactical
Fighter Wing here.
The sponsorship program,

which began early in 1976, has
proven highly successful to date.
The success story started to
unfold in November 1975. The
unit had been organized for more
than five years, but had suffered
ups and downs in cadet

the many resources available on
an Air Force base, immediately

would go one step further. They
would sponsor the CAP unit.
"We will make every resource
that we have available to you for
your aerospace education and
advancement in the cadet
program. If you fail, it will be
your own fault," the wing commander stated.
As evidence of thewing's total
involvement, the 3Mth Tactical
Fighter Sq. members
volunteered to act as aerospace
education counselors and the
354th commander became the

aerospace education and activities officer. The squadron
also acts as a host for meetings
and activities.
The cadets have benefitted
through orientation flights in the

High point of the week for the

The school was conducted on a
trial basis to determine if
regional meetings can alleviate

"If the regional school plan
can eliminate some of our airlift

CAP Members Join Hands
To Save Aging War Veteran
GOOD YEAR, Ariz.--Members of three local CAP squadrons joined hands here recently
to save an aging veteran of
World War II from extinction.
The veteran, a B-18A bomber
dating from the 1930's, had sat
unused for years here at the
Phoenix - Litchfield Airport. Until it was grounded here years
ago, it was used for crop dusting.
B-18s were used in the early
stages of the war, according to _
CAP 2nd Lt. Harold G. Doles,
commander of the Goodyear
Comp. Sq. 309. "There are only
three B-18s left in the United
States," he said. "After the war,
the majority of them were
bought by South American
countries to haul bananas."
The manager of the airport
where the old plane rested
threatened to junk the relic to
g e t i t o u t o f t h e w a y. S o ,
members of Sq. 309, PhoenixLitchfield Sr. Sq. 313, and Sky
Harbor Int. Cadet Sq. 306 pitched in and went to work.
They spent many hours remov-

ing the thousands of bolts
holding the craft together in the
process of dismantling it. When
it was stripped down, the
wingless fuselage was towed
along little-used roads to the
Pima County Air Museum at
Tucson. The various other parts
were loaded on flat-bed trucks
and hauled along.

At the museum, the plane will
be restored so that aviation buffs
can enjoy seeing it in future
A number of other
organizations assisted with the
move, including Sis-Q Flying
Service at the airport which
donated the use of some of its
special equipment.


Spotted Overturned Boat

Illinois Member Responsible
For Lake Michigan Rescue
Hoyt, a member of the Illinois
Executive Reserve Group I,
effected an unusual rescue late
last year while flying over Lake
Michigan on a trip from Cape
Cod to Chicago.
Hoyt was flying over the lake
about 3:30 p.m. when he spotted
what appeared to be an overturned boat in the middle of the lake,
about 25 miles north of Gary,
Ind. Dropping down for a closer
look, he saw three people stranded on the overturned hull of a 14foot Boston whaleboat.
Rocking his wings to let the
stranded party know he had
spotted them, Hoyt climbed
higher with the intent of calling
by radio for help. Reaching an
800-foot altitude, he spotted a
large power boat about two
miles from the overturned whale
Not knowing how long the
three people had been in distress
nor how long they could stay
afloat in the icy waters, he
elected to try to get the attention
of the power boat and guide
them back to the derelict.
Setting up a race track pattern
between the overturned boat and
the rescue craft, Hoyt fftade a
low pass over the power boat.

Doing a Chandelle over the
derelict, he descended and
returned to the power boat to
repeat the process.
After five tries, the crew of
the power boat got the message
and began moving in the direction of the distressed craft. Two
more passes were necessary to
guide the power boat to the
scene of the accident where the
victims were taken aboard the
power boat.
Making one last pass over the

scene, Royt rocked his wings and
proceeded on his way. Next day,
the newspapers reported the
drowning of three different
Chicago residents in Lake
Michigan. None of the victims
had lasted more than a few
minutes in the 42-degree water
and each had been within easy
swimming distance of shore.
The three persons on the overturned whaleboat probably
would not have lasted the night
had Hoyt not effected the rescue.

The 1977 Cadet Special Activities have been developed to provide incentive programs for qualified
cadets. In addition to the cadets, senior members are afforded an opportunity to act as escorts.
This brochure is directive and all requirements must be fulfilled by the cadet and the commander
as listed.
1. The cadet special activity program was established as a motivational force to encourage
greater participation in the cadet program. Selection for any one of the cadet special activities
is a reward for having attained achievement and advancement.
2. Special activities broaden the scope of thinking and experience of each cadet selectee. In
fact, certain activities contribute directly to the cadet's knowledge of career opportunities, not only
in the Air Force, but also in civilian aerospace career fields. Participation in this most active
program can be a high point of a cadet's life and contribute immeasurably to the formulation of life
goals and ambitions.
3. Many cadet activities have been established and are controlled and conducted at squadron,
wing, and region level This pamphlet describes only those activities sponsored by National Headquarters.
commanders are responsible for preparing and distributing travel authorizations, properly authenticated by the wing liaison offi cer, which indicate points of departure and destination for all special
activities. Exceptions: The IACE and those cadets andsenior members who require MAC air transportation to attend a national activity {Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico). These orders will be published
and distributed by Headquarters CAP-USAF. Due to the coordination and time involved in publishin$
and distributing orders, no alternate will be accepted after 30 days prior to the starting date of an
activity for which Headquarters CAP-USAF is responsible for publishing the orders.

NOTE: Cadets who are selected for special a~tivities and accept the se!ection must do so only with ~.
the unrlerstanding (1) ~ that Us~kF airlift may not be provided (except IACE) and (2) that they are
obligating themselves to provide their ova~ transportation to and from the activity site if necessary.
Parents/guardians of cadets selected shall be made aware of the above condition.

1. For all activities except IACE cadets will apply on CAPF 31, dated June 1974. Each qualified
cadet must complete two copies of the form, Sections I and IV, and have parent complete Section V
of the application in addition to the applicant's signature. He must submit one copy to his squadron
commander by 1 March. The squadron commander will complete Section II and forward all applications to the wing. The remaining copy must be retained by the cadet for presentation at the activity
should he be selected to participate. This is the only paperwork required of the cadet to make application for a special activity.
2. Before applying, the cadet should check the qualifications and entrance requirements for the
selected activities, as listed in this brochure.

Current CAP cadet/STP membership at time of application, selection, and during the
Proper sex.

c. Required minimum age by 1 July in the year in which the activity is held.
d. Minimum required achievement level by 31 December 1976. (Completed Lindbergh,

selection boards so as to arrive not later than 20 March. Wing selection boards will make the selections and notify the squadrons and cadets of their choice by the first week In May, at which time
arrangements for physical examinations should be made. Selection boards may require a personal
interview with cadets who apply since selection factors include military bearing, appearance, attitude, general knowledge, and interest in the activity. No requirements will be waived, and cadets
with the highest earned grade will be considered first. After verifying qualifications of all selectees,
the wing commander will submit CAPF 7 (original copy)of primary selectees and alternates by
course as listed in this brochure to National Headquarters/TRAS by 1 May 1977, with copy to region
