“What Does It Mean to Serve?” Maj. Gen. Mark Smith, Civil Air Patrol national commander and CEO, asks in his new video. He cites “something greater than me, something greater than you, something greater that we’re working towards in service to community, state and nation, our members as well as the folks external to CAP that we work with.”

National Blue Beret cadets and seniors were honored to be visited by United States Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David L. Goldfein and Air Mobility Command Commander General Maryanne Miller on July 27th at #OSH19. Gen Goldfein and Gen Miller spent time answering questions from cadets, and reinforced leadership lessons taught through the cadet program. As our cadets continue to learn valuable leadership lessons, receiving support from senior Air Force leaders is paramount to creating America's leaders of tomorrow.

Operational day 1 is the official beginning of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019, bringing with it an amazing day airshow, aircraft arrivals, and great opportunities to hone ES skills. Flights rotated through the flight line, emergency services, warbirds, ultralights, and headquarters duties. Operations day 1 also brought a surprise: the U.S. Navy Blue Angels! The Navy's demonstration team flew over Wittman Field quickly, and then headed home. In all, operations day 1 proved to be very successful, and cadets have been working very hard to ensure the success of the activity!

General information

CAP's aerospace education efforts focus on two different audiences: volunteer CAP members and the general public. The programs ensure that all CAP members (seniors and cadets) have an appreciation for and knowledge of aerospace issues. To advance within the organization, members are required to participate in the educational program. Aerospace educators at CAP's National Headquarters at Maxwell Air Force Base, Ala., provide current materials that reflect the highest standards of educational excellence. Aerospace education is divided into two parts: internal and external. The internal aerospace education program has two parts as well: cadet and senior. Cadets complete aerospace education as one of the requirements to progress through the achievement levels of the cadet program. Senior members have a responsibility to become knowledgeable of aerospace issues and the AE program that CAP provides. They are further encouraged to share the information obtained with their local communities and school systems. CAP's external aerospace programs are conducted through our nation's educational system. Each year, CAP sponsors many workshops in states across the nation, reaching hundreds of educators and thereby thousands of young people. These workshops highlight basic aerospace knowledge and focus on advances in aerospace technology. CAP's aerospace education members receive more than 20 free aerospace education classroom materials.
