~'AC candidates w~ere given their first airplane rides during the period from January
15th to February 15th. That's a good record considering that ships in the northern
part of the state have been snow bound.
Then, too, it was the first time the various
squadrons had use of the ship and quite
naturally some time was lost in checking out
pilots and getting a working program organized. By now each squadron in all groups
has had the Army ship (except for the snow
bound north) at least once, so when it returns
again individual squadrons will know what
to do to get the greatest possible number

CITATIONS AWARDED
TO CAP PILOTS
]he American Legion hasn't forgotten the
way CAP cooperated in their Aerial Memb e r s h i p R o u n d u p o n A r m i s t i c e D a y, N o v e m ber 11, 1943. Just recently Department Commander G. Stordock called Capt. Paul Koch
asking him to stop in to pick up Legion
citations for all pilots and co-pilots participating. These citations were on 81/2xll inch
Farchments inscribed with the individual
name. Also there was a small citation card
to be carried in the wallet. No doubt all
CAP pilots will think enough of these citations to frame them for a keepsake. Kinda'
nice, eh? Thank you Commander Stordock.

Judging from the questions asked by many
pilots, including those who base at Mitchell

It is planned to conduct similar classes in

"THEY ALSO SERVE"
One day recently a CAP member sat at ease
in the cockpit of his ship. The altimeter
recorded a modest height; the speed was
normal; the skies most peaceful. And therein was the rub, for our fellow member was
thinking in terms of adventure.
Purely in that spirit he thought how thrilling it might be were his plane a fighting
ship and were he to be at that moment swapping smashes with an attacking Zero or Messerschmit. He felt zeal regret that a few
years on the wrong side should make him
ineligible to be among those young crusaders
who were experiencing perhaps the greatest
of all thrills. And here he droned along
on his prosaic, tin-soldier mission.

SERVICE RIBBONS TO CAP
The first Service Ribbons made their appearance at the Mitchell Field Squadron recent13' when Lt. Wamser presented them to members of his unit. All members of CAP can
well be proud to wear these ribbons as they
signify a recognized service to our Government.

SOUND PICTURES ARE USED
FOR CLASS INSTRUCTION
F l i g h t O f fi c e r C a r l H . \ Va m s e r, g r o u n d i n structor on the Marquette University Naval

MILITARY COURTESY AND DISCIPLINE

"lhere are man), others, of course (FM 21-50),
but if the regulations listed here are learned
and remembered you'll never find ),ourself
embarrassed or embarrass your CAP organization when in military circles.
Courtesy implies polite and considerate
behavior toward others, whether senior or
junior, and whether or not the)' are members
of the military service.
In general, juniors habitually give the same
precedence to and show the same deference
toward their seniors that an)" courteous person does to his elders. These courtesies
s h o u l d b e s h o w n p r o m p t l y a n d s m a r t l y.
Slovenly and half-hearted execution of these
acts is in itself discourteous.
Defintions -- Structures such as drill halls,
riding halls, gymnasiums, and other roofed
inclosures used for drill or exercise of troops
are considered as "out of doors."
When the word "indoors" is used it is construed to mean offices, mess halls, kitchens,
