CHARLES ROBERTS LA JUNTA HIGH SCHOOL CLASS OF 1957 As I approached the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, D.C., I had no idea as to the depth of the Memorial. The gentle walking slope gave me no clue as to what I was about to descend into. My immediate reaction was to the sincere simplicity as I looked at the stark black marble panels with names etched into them. The slope took me from knee level to a point where I could hardly focus on the names at the top of the panels. As I walked in and through the Memorial, I casually looked for the name of my classmate. There were others there too who seemed to be casually looking for names, while others had found the name or names and were touching them. In one case, a man who appeared to be six feet tall was reaching as far as he could with a piece of paper and was vigorously scrubbing with a pencil to etch the name of his loved one. As he scrubbed the paper to lift the name, I noticed a lady, who must have been his daughter, sharpening pencils with a penknife ...

I've never been in the military, but as someone in Civil Air Patrol, I've always had great respect those who serve in the military branches.
I'm so happy with where I've gotten so far since the 2012-2013 year. I was in a bad place then, so each birthday is an added victory. I never thought I'd see twenty. *** I never thought I'd get past fifteen, after my family split up and my only friend was forced out of my life. I was alone, I was bitter, I was not who I wanted to be, and I was scared. Civil Air Patrol saved my life. It gave me friends, family, and a purpose. It taught me how to lead, how strong I could be, and how to be brave. I'd be dead for sure if I had never joined. I enlisted in the Army National Guard in 2012 and was honorably discharged under medical in the summer of 2013, something that makes me feel shame every time it gets mentioned or I see another Soldier. I thought enlisting would make me brave and strong; a hero. I was very wrong. I fell apart. I didn't leave my bed for months. I failed out of Eastern and I lost my family in CAP in a matter of months. Five years of slaving away gone almost immediately. I lost my full ride .. ...

Tell me what you think about the letter I sent to a former seal. "THE ONLY EASY DAY WAS YESTERDAY" Good evening Mr. Rutherford. My name is Matthew Hoffman. How are you today sir? I'd like to just say something it's quite long but you'll understand. First I'd like to say thank you sir for serving our country and your an inspiration to me, and here's why. Through out my yrs of wanting to join the military since the age of 17 I've been trying to pass the ASVAB so much. In fact I took the EAST like forty four times, and the real one like five times but I knew about the deal about only having three test before two years. So I've been going at this up til last month. I applied for the naval academy back in January because I was so mad some people I know and I wanted out of my life, I want to grow up and take on new challenges. So I went ahead and applied and by a miracle they wrote back last month with an exciting letter stating that I am an official candidate of the class of 2019. Once I got that letter and th ...

FYI: The South Carolina Air National Guard is conducting an air defense exercise in the Florence area, June 11. As part of this routine exercise, fighter jets assigned to the SCANG’s 169th Fighter Wing might be seen escorting a single-engine aircraft belonging to the South Carolina Civil Air Patrol between 9 to 11:30 a.m. Carefully planned and closely controlled, this exercise has been coordinated with the Federal Aviation Administration to ensure the rapid response capability associated with the SCANG’s Aerospace Control Alert mission. Most of the flying activity will not be visible from the ground. The McEntire unit is a critical component of the strategic force that is poised 24/7 to respond to airborne threats over the United States and is part of North American Aerospace Defense Command’s Operation Noble Eagle, which was initiated after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
When I was about 15 years old, I was a member of CAP (Civil Air Patrol), which is a military pre training organization. We wore camo-military-esque uniforms with patches and epaulettes, and I was proud to be a part of it, until we learned to shoot a semi-automatic weapon. All of the members had to take a class on how to take apart, put together, load, and clean the weapon, which was very interesting to me. I like knowing how things work and are built. After the class, we went outside to the firing range. 5 at a time, we lined up, crouched down, and laid on our stomachs. At that point, we were each given a semi-automatic rifle. It was then that I knew this was actually a real gun and not just some "You'll shoot your eye out kid" situation. I had been used to paint ball guns, BB guns, etc... But this was different. This wasn't "You'll shoot your eye out kid". This was "What you have in your hands is capable of killing a lot of people very easily. This is not for hunting. This is for killing." I managed to f ...

Seven Cadets from Green River Composite Squadron attended a McChord Orientation Trip Saturday. Tour stops included: * Washington Wing Headquarters (WAWG HQ) for Civil Air Patrol - Cadets met Wing admin staff, toured the building, and were given a chance to pick up spare uniform pieces at no cost. * McChord Thrift Store - The Thrift Store, which is volunteer-run, is only open certain weekdays and the first Saturday of the month. Cadets now know where to return with their family members in the future. This is a worthwhile stop if you're ever passing by McChord during their limited hours, because most uniform items cost just $2-5, and you really never know what you're going to find. * The Dry Cleaner, Alterations, and Clothing Sales at the Exchange - Cadets found unclaimed uniform items at the Dry Cleaners for $5-8, and then stopped in to Clothing Sales for a few specific items (neck tie tabs, PT belts, boot blousers, etc.). Alterations is a good future stop once they need all their new patches sewn on, or b ...

CAP’s CORE VALUES The Air Force's Core Values are: Integrity First, Service Before Self, and Excellence in all We Do. This is more than just a slogan. The Air Force describes them as the common bond among all comrades in arms. The core values of Civil Air Patrol are based on the Air Force and strive to establish a common set of behavioral expectations as well as a set of standards to *** member conduct. The values of Integrity, Volunteer Service, Excellence and Respect, serve as the ethical framework for CAP’s service to America.
Apparently I have learned nothing about volunteering in a military service despite 4-years of active duty in the Marine Corps. I'm now the Transportation Officer for our squadron, and have a new Ford Civil Air Patrol van that I'm responsible for. Wash the van, talk to the van, love the van. It has to be waxed once a year. It doesn't have lights and a siren, so I'm REALLY happy about that! This van is for official duty use only, so no new party friends!

They're like unpaid professionals who take on heavy tasks, which is why the Air Force has them undergo simulated missions every year. At Concord's Buchanan Field, about 50 volunteers with the California Wing from across the state demonstrated their proficiency on Saturday on the second and final day of training.

CAP partners with Smithsonian for nationwide singing of national anthem June 14 Visitors view the Star-Spangled Banner at the National Museum of American History. The first stanza of the national anthem is projected prominently on the wall above the 30-foot by 34-foot flag, which is displayed at a horizontal orientation and, in order to reduce stress to the 200-year-old wool and cotton fabric, at a 10-degree angle of elevation in a special enclosure with a 35-foot floor-to-ceiling glass wall, The room has separate environmental systems maintaining a constant temperature of 68-72 degrees and relative humidity of 50 percent.

WHY VOTE FOR ME, SHELL MERCER, FOR FAMILY COURT JUDGE, DEPT. C? I've been a practicing attorney for 15 years; before that, in 1992, I was a legal secretary and paralegal. In 2009, the Family Court Judges chose me to serve as a Pro Tem Hearing Master. I've sat on the bench and adjudicated approximately 3,000 matters in the following areas of Family Court: Juvenile Delinquency, Abuse & Neglect, Mental Health Commitment, Discovery, Guardianship, Domestic Violence, Child Support & Truancy. I've also served as a Truancy Judge for a few years. In 2010, the Governor of Nevada appointed [and subsequently reappointed] me to serve as 1 of 2 consumer members on the Chiropractic Physicians' Board of Nevada. I've chaired a number of disciplinary hearings as a member of the Nevada chiropractors' licensing and regulatory board. I grew up with two older siblings. Our father was enlisted in the Air Force. He passed away from multiple sclerosis when I was a senior in high school. I've lived in Las Vegas since 1988 (with th ...

These pictures represent an Aerospace Education program designed by Major Gregory Krempasky, of the Ohio River (IL) Composite Squadron, via the Teen Reach Program with materials provided and purchased by the Illinois Cooperative Extension Office. Assisting Major Krempasky were Major Larry Call and Captain Ron Diggs with classroom instruction. Students studied aviation maps, built kites and rockets, then flew their kites and rockets. Some of the rockets were able to reach an altitude of 1000 feet over the Massac County High School north of Metropolis. Further, SM Joe Krempasky served as launch and safety officer for the event. The Civil Air Patrol is the official Auxiliary of the United States Air Force. For more information on the CAP Cadet Program, please contact Major Krempasky... Loads of summer activities. All over Illinois, Kentucky, and the entire United States.

It is with deep regret we inform you of the passing of SAL Member Eddie Hoeger. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Eddies family during this difficult time. Funeral arrangements and obit below. EDWARD G. HOEGER (52), our son, brother, father, and friend, died on June 6, 2014. Eddy was a lovable, irresistible rascal whose infectious smile, unmistakable laugh, quick wit, and unshakable loyalty defined him. His absence leaves us bereft. He is survived by his mother, Penny Postel; his sister, Ellyce Hoeger (Richard Gillis); sons, Edward P. and Myles D. Hoeger; members of the Walsky, Postel, and Hoeger families; special lady, Renae Previdi; and scores of friends. He remained stoic and positive, charming and entertaining during his final bout with esophageal cancer which ended in his childhood home in the loving hands of his dearest mother, sister, and faithful, best friend, Catherine Binowski. It was an honor to care for him. His bravery was amazing. He encountered death stoically and gracefully. While still a ...
First time in the pilot seat of a cesna 182 in the civil air patrol. Was way badass
Thank God America has a Civil Air Patrol (CAP) teaching our kids how to make guns out of pieces of wood and bombs at age 14. I'm serious!! When you think you disagree with me,...sign your kid up as a foreign exchange student in Rwanda. You'll sure as *** change your mind about whether your kid should go to school without a gun. The kids carry automatic weapons at age 5 and 6. If they don't have guns, your kid may not have lunch money or get shot for not giving it up. Seriously! Socially, I'm a VERY LIBERAL, "Open-Minded" guy, but NOT when it comes to weapons and guns. Most people have NO IDEA HOW DANGEROUS THE WORLD REALLY IS. There are ILLEGAL CREMATORIUMS,...believe me, I KNOW! ROGER JEWELL FOR PRESIDENT 2016/L.A. Roger (TM)/Roger Jewell
Still super happy that I passed all my Civil Air Patrol tests today and that I get to rank up soon.
I miss ROTC and Civil Air Patrol! I seriously had the best time with those groups!

Congratulations to my Ben Aaron Shea who PASSED his exam for the Spaatz award - the highest Civil Air Patrol Cadet Award. Very few achieve this level in the program. He will be sewing on his cadet COLONEL rank as soon as his order gets here!
"Overall it was a really good course! I liked how despite the fact the course was condensed into 6-7 days and was intense, there was RPL and assessments were conducted so that many UoC were covered simultaneously. Now that is what I call good multitasking! Apart from having a great group of people to work and learn with, Sibby is a great teacher! There were a few days during the course that I had a headache where at times I wanted to sleep. However, Sibby kept me awake as she kept the pace up, made the material interesting and fun. Keeping adults awake is a talent. Thanks for a great course Sibby!" From VRA Australian Civil Air Patrol

Exciting day for pops.the first flight in the Civil Air Patrol airplane. Nanny was so good to go with me and take pictures. She was excited too and actually I thought she would alert the media and invite the newspaper and local television people.just joking, it was wonderful. It's called a "Sundowner Patrol" and we fly over the Islands and beaches looking for boats or people in trouble, and respond to any Coast Guard needs. Pops can't wait until the next flight!!!
