Of Revision


N AT I O N A l , H E A D Q U A R T E R S
A revised CAP Manual 60-1 is
being finalized for printing and distribution to the field should be
made this month.
The new manual has ben simplified dnd reduced in content to a
large degree. The wing commander is given more of the responsibilities to insure a safe and effective flying program is established
and maintained.
CAP Manual 50-15 is being consolidated, simplified and reduced
in content which should make it
more understandable. The manual should be printed and distributed in two-three weeks.
All CAP and liaison office personnel should familiarize themselves with the changes contained
in these revised manuals.

than the effort he spends to increase his knowledge of basic
weather principles and to learn to interpret and use the products
of the weather service.
Be Specific When Requesting a Briefing
When you request a weather briefing, whether face-to-face
or by telephone, you greatly assist the briefer and get faster
service by telling him the following:
1. That you are a pilot. (Many requests for weather information are not related to aviation. Also airline passengers often
inquire about flying weather.
2 . Yo u r a i r c r a f t n u m b e r a n d y o u r n a m e ( f o r t h e r e c o r d ) .
3. The type of aircraft you are planning to fly. (Light single
engine, high performance multi-engine and jets all present different briefing problems).
4. Your destination.
5. Your estimated departure time and your time en route.
6. Whether or not you can go IFR.
Complete Weather Briefing
If a telephone or face-to-face briefing is considered necessary and you have given the information listed above, the briefing will be incomplete unless it contains all of the following
1. Weather synopsis (positions of lows, fronts, ridges, etc.).
2. Current weather conditions.
3. Forecast weather conditions.
~ 4. Alternate routes (if necessary).
5. Hazardous weather.
6. Forecast winds aloft.
If you don't get all of this information, ask for it. However,
you very likely will get a complete briefing because the above
items are part of the briefer's schedule. It will help if you let
him finish his 'presentation before asking questions.
Alternate Course
The importance of having an alternate course in mind, in
the event unsuitable weather develops, can hardly be overemphasized.
Aid Fellow Pilot
Vast areas of air space exist which are not sampled by either
surface or upper air observations, and in areas where observations are made, there are no instruments available for observing
turbulence and icing other than airborne aircraft.
Serve your fellow pilots by observing and reporting cloud
bases and tops, turbulence, icing, areas of instrument weather,
and other information significant to flying. These reports are of
value to forecasters, briefers and pilots whether they verify the
forecast or differ significantly from it.
Pilots should report in-flight weather to nearest FSSI

SEA and Civil Air Patrol
Just as it has touched Americans everywhere, the situation in Southeast Asia has touched Civil Air Patrol. The Air
Force's need in Vietnam has now reached into the ranks of
o f fi c e r s a s s i g n e d t o C A P - U S A F.
Now as always, the combat mission of the Air Force
.. and the activities which support this.., come first.
Under USAF's Personnel Ihiority Designator system, a
unit's actual manning depends on its relationship to the
Air Force's combat mission.
This means that the more remote a unit is from combat
or combat support, the lower its priority for personnel manning. Since Civil Air Patrol activities, although of marked importance to the nation,
have only a delayed impact on the Air
Force's commitment in Southeast A+sia, CAP
ranks close to the bottom of the priority
While CAP-USAF is authorized 89 offl e e r s o f l i e u t e n a n t c o l o n e l r a n k o r l o w e r,
Civil Air Patrol now faces a period of lessened support from USAF insofar as officer
manning of these slots is concerned. USAF
WILCOX , is not able to supply the full 89 at this time
due to higher priorities elsewhere and the exigencies of hostilities in Vietnam.
Let me hasten to assure you that the Air Force has

Vietnam Highlights
Vietnam Returnee Visits
MILWAUKEE, Wis.--Milwaukee Comp. Sq. members welcomed
home a former member recently and were treated to a two hour briefing on the Vietnam scene by 1st Lt. David J. Siefert.
Lieutenant Siefert, a U.S. Army officer, served as a supply officer
for the 53d General Support Group based near the Mekong Delta in
southern Vietnam.
During the visit Lieutenant
Siefert displayed relics of the war
including a Vietcong uniform, flags
and leaflets that were dropped
over North Vietnam. Squadron
cadets examined the material and
posed questions to the veteran
Army officer.
He explained the way the Vietnamese people live, their occupations, diet and education programs.
Lieutenant Siefert has been
recommended for the Bronze Star
and is expected to be promoted
to captain shortly.

WASHINGTON, D.C.--"On the occasion of the 2Oth Anniversary
of the establishment of Women in the Air Force, I join with you in
commemorating the achievements and contributions of WAF to the
United States Air Force and to the nation.
"The celebration of an anniversary is a time to reflect on the past.
Our past is one in which we can all take pride. However, no matter
how pleasant the remembrance of things past, an anniversary is also
a time to look to the future. And today, the future of Women in the
Air Force is particularly bright.
"In this 20th year, the efforts of many have culminated in the
creation of expanding opportunities for Women in the Air Force to
contribute to the extent of their individual capabilities both at home
and overseas.
"With expanding opportunities come increasing challenges and
responsibilities. I am confident we will meet them. To all I send my
best wishes for continued success."

Patriotic Plans Get Push

L E H I G H VA L L E Y, P a . - - Tw o
nationwide patriotic programs received impetus here as local Civil
Air Patrol members took part in
"Operation Close Ranks," launched by Freedoms Foundation at
Valley Forge, and "Operation
CAPitol Hill."
Sparked by former President
Dwight D. Eisenhower's call for
a visible display of patriotism~
"Operation Close Ranks" was designed to encourage citizens to
display the American flag at
homes and in places of business
and to take part in special flagraising ceremonies.

"Operation CAPitol Hill" was
initiated in order to give cadets
and senior officers in the CAP a
first hand look at the working
methods of U.S. Congressmen and
Senators at the nation's capital,
Combining the two operations,
Congressman Fred B. Rooney of
Pennsylvania's 15th District,
played host to a group of 12 cadets and eight officers from the
Pennsylvania Wing who flew to
Washington: The Congressman arranged a tour o f government
buildings and presented each
member of the group a copy of
the Declaration of Independence
and the Constitution.
