When was the last time you searched for a downed aircraft, a lost hiker, or a missing boater? …How did you feel when you were just a few steps away from the Blue Angels’ jets, ensuring the safety of over 17,000 people at an airshow? …What was it like to go flying in a four-seater airplane, and then the pilot let you take the controls for a while?…What did it mean to you, participating in a color guard at the last Memorial Day, Maple Leaf, Torchlight, or July 4th parade?
Perhaps you’re thinking to yourself, “I’ve never done anything like that.” Well, the La Crosse Composite Squadron of CAP does all of that, and more!
The Civil Air Patrol is the official auxiliary to the United States Air Force. CAP is comprised of volunteers who perform 95% of land search and rescue missions as directed by the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center at Tyndall AFB, FL.
