by Lt. Col. R. H. Christie

O n e Ye a r L a t e r
I offer my thanks to the 569 members of
the National Capital Wing for working so
very hard and together during the past 13
months of my command. The Wing has changedfor the better. And as we know, the only
constant thing in life is change. Here are
just a few:
We plan to use and train unit commanders as mission staff on SAR/CD exercises.
We are preparing a new repeater site to
firm up our coverage.
We are looking at participation with New
Yo r k W i n g i n a s u m m e r L a n d R e s c u e T r a i n i n g
We have a Unit Citation Award for our
work on Palm 90'
Our Cadet Lt. Col. Jerome Brown appears
on page 19 of the Report to Congress.
The warehouse is open and functioning.
Maj. Maurice Thomas is offering a Communications School on Saturday mornings at
8 alto.

We renewed our agreement with the District government for the second year and
they are happy with us.
We're a proud Wing ...... and justly so.
Let's do it again.
Commander .......... Col. Ronald Quander
I n t e r n a l I n f o . . . . Maj. Amanda Anderson

National Capital Wing of Civil Air

Well, the first quarter of 1982 has
passed and NatCap Wing is into the second
q u a r t e r o f t h e y e a r. J a n . 1 2 , a t C o m m a n d e r ' s
Call, I stressed the need for qualified Emergency Services within theWing. The next
day we had "Palm 90" mission 2-055A. On
Jan. i5, we supportedDC/OEPwlth the Stevy
Wonder parade. That got NatCap off to a
rurming start in 1982 from the SAR point of
v i e w.
In February there was SAR and Comm. train~
ing at the Class "B" Encampment at Fort
Meade, Md., followed by a Wing SAR practice
at Acqualand Airport. March was a bit quiet
by comparison with visitations with two
squadrons on SAR readiness and support of
DC/0EP with the marathon.
Things started going again in second
quarter with REDCAP 2-425 on April 7, our
e v a l u a t e d W i n g S A R C A P a t W a r r e n t o n , Va . , o n
April 17 and March of Dimes Walkathon on
April 25. Middle East Region SAR Compitit i o n w a s h e l d " a t F t . P i c k e t t , Va . , A p r i l
30 through May 2. Planning has already
started for the practice SAR on June 12.
I would like to thank those squadrons
and seniors who found time to support Emergency Services and attended these functions
s o f a r t h i s y e a r. B u t h o w a b o u t t h o s e s q u a d rons and seniors, includingWing staff, who
haven't participated?
We hada critical need for senior staff
at our evaluated SAR mission. Where were
you? We had six ground teams at our evaluated SAR mission, yet we had ten teams at
Acqualand the month before. I have had
problems fielding a full complement to attend MER SAR Comp at Ft. Pickett to represent your Wing.
Again, We are holding these practice
missions and training exercises so you can
be more proficent in SAR. If your squadron
does not attend, or you do not attend, how
do you expect to get the training you need
to become proficient? National Capital Wing
needs trained, qualified, personnel to fill
every mission staff position and trained,
qualified, air crews to fly search missions.
Spring is here with better flying conditions. More pilots will be flying during
the summer with the probable increase in
related S~2 incidents - so, let's be prepared.



Colorful coat
Causes comments
b y M a j o r A . W. S c h e l l , J r.
"Who was that?"
" W H AT w a s t h a t ? "
"Darn if I know, but shets in the Civil
Air Patrol, that's for sure."
Such comments are usually overheard by
Major Amanda Anderson, National Capital
Wing director of internal public affairs,
when she wears her blue jacket.
~hat is to say the jacket was blue when
she bought it~
It's still blue, but it's
the mass of color covering it thai causes
the comments. ~he jacket now sports over
ninety Civil Air Patrol andCAPrelated organizational patches and pins, none of which
were purchased.
Fifty two oft he patches are, of course,
those of the various wings - all donated.
~he remainder are region, unit, obsolete
C A P, I A C E a n d A i r F o r c e i n s i g n i a - a g a i n
all donated. ~he 12 IACE emblems were donatedbyE~ropeanparticipants during their
visit to the nation's capital in 1979. Additional, there are seven USAF patches on
the jacket from units with which she has
had close CAP related contact.
~he jacket is a real eye catcher and
quite a conversation piece. Quite understandably the conversation centers around
Civil Air Patrol. What more could a public
affairs officer ask for than something that
automatically brings up the subject wherever she goes o
~he best thing about the jacket, says
Maj. Anderson, is the ninety new friends
she has made by way of the ninety patches
t h a t w e r e g e n e r o u s l y g i v e n h e r. E a c h b r i g h t
splash of color represents a new ~cquaintance made via Civil Air Patrol.
When asked which is her favorite patch
she proudly points to one from Maryland
Wing's U.S. Naval Academy Squadron. "It's
from the only CAP unit at one of the nations
service academies," she explains.
Is the jacket complete? Not in the
N e e d l e s s t o s a y, t h e r e a r e m a n y
unit emblems she would also llke to add.
If you would like to make a new friend
and add your unit's ir~ignia to a most un-.
usual collection, bring a duplicate patch
to any NatCap activltyand look for the tall
blonde Major in the colorful jacket.

Well kept CAP secret is finally revealed
Civil Air Patrol has a secret~
A secret that has been well kept since 1959 1960. It is something that can be used for
displays, recruiting, parades, shows, radio
and television.
The Air Force has known about it and
has kept quiet for 23 years.

Cadets work ,vet flight line

S a t u r d a y, M a y 8 , d a w n e d w i t h c l o u d y
skies and rain. The 75 cadets and21 seniors
of the National Capital Wing that were on
duty at Andrews AFB, Md., for the annual
open house prayed it would stop. And stop
it did - the rain that is.
Open House at Andrews AFB is held one
week before Armed Forces Day to start the
week-long activities. All types of aircraft,
t a n k s , g u n s , a n d e q u i p m e n t w e r e o n d i s p l a y.
All the Armed Forces join together to put
o n o n e b i g s h o w.
This year there were the Army Golden
Knights, a Marine aerial rappelling team,
an Army mass parachute drop, Air Force Hono r G u a r d S i l e n t D r i l l Te a m , A i r F o r c e K - 9
guard dogs, and much more.

CAP had the Wing's C-172 and ground team

going on.
Cadets on duty worked on the flight line
keeping the several hundred thousand spectators from going out on the runways and
were used other places as needed by the Air
NatCap cadets and seniors were sharp
and did the Wing and themselves proud. As
usual when there is a job to be done - Nat
Cap members always come through.
M a j . B e a r a , A i r F o r c e p r o j e c t o f fi c e r,
was very impressed with the prompt and efficient way CAP did whatever was asked of
All Lt.Col. Roy Boller and Maj. Amanda
A n d e r s o n , c o - p r o j e c t o f fi c e r s f o r C A P. c a n
add is, "Amen, and thanks to all who worked
so hard.
"Well Done: ! "

But now the secret is out' Maj. ~m~n~%
Anderson stumbled across it and started asking questions. She called the Air Force on
Bolling AFB and found it to be true. Next,
National Headquarters confessed that it was
true and had known about it all along!
What is the secret? Well, it is really
two secrets. CAP has its own marches comp l e t e w i t h l y r i c s . T h e fi r s t i s " T h e C . A . P.
Is On The Go" (The Civil Air Patrol March),
l y r i c s b y C a p t . R o b e r t M i l l s , C A P, m u s i c b y
Josef Myrow (ASCAP) 1959. In 1960, Sgt.
F l o y d E . We r e , C h i e f A r r a n g e r, U . S . A i r
Force Band did an arrangement for Band.
The other one is "Civil Air Patrol
March Song" by Nell Mann, lyrics and Lt.
C o l . L e w i s L . M o o r e , C A P, m u s i c .
Both have been published and adopted by
the National Board, Civil Air Patrol. At
least one has been recorded.
Maj. Anderson has obtained the sheet
music for both and is trying to get a copy
of the recording.
Now, you know!

P.A. seminar held
Civil Air Patrol members of the National Capital Wing had an opportunity to
participate in a Public Affairs Officer
Seminar which was conducted at Andrews Air

The seminar provided an opportunity for
local Civil Air Patrol members to learn
about the importance of this function to
the total Civil Air Patrol effort, and is
the first of two seminars held by the Wing
each year forthis purpose.

<(on tol=*> of storms
The season of cold and snow has finally
past and warm temperatures are with us.
Now is the time for the weather Zorcast to
read "...partly cloudy with a chance of afternoon and evening thunderstorms..."
With the storms and the added hazard of
traffic it should be on every driver's mind
t o d r i v e d e f e n s i v l y. W e s h o u l d a l s o m a k e
sure that the vehicles we drive are in top
mechanical condition.
For the pilots, a good preflight should
include a good weather briefing. Thunderstorms can be among the most destructive
forces on earth.
A reminder for all pilots - the Wing
Flight Clinic will be held at Davison Army
Airfield on June 5. For more information
contact SM Howard Ross at 892-4000 (ext 45)
or (703) 67i-5210 after 6 p.m.
