#CharacterMatters March is #WomensHistoryMonth and the #CivilAirPatrol cadet virtue is having a #VisionAndGoals. Today's quote comes from aviatrix and author Amelia Mary Earhart who spoke often of the importance of following one's dreams. Earhart is an exemplar in the CAP cadet award program. She said:

"Some of us have great runways already built for us. If you have one, take off. But if you don't have one, realize it is your responsibility to grab a shovel and build one for yourself and for those who will follow after you."

CIVIL AIR PATROL in this book!!! I'm a volunteer at Lone Star Flight Museum! My book "Born on the Moon - Living in the Space Age" is now available in paperback and ebook formats. It is all color and visually exciting. Oh, yeah -- the content is terrific! Done in a visually compelling scrapbook style it spans my life from space dreams to reality. It is filled with graphics and photographs, family history, sci-fi influence, flying at age 15 (CAP), traveling abroad, working on satellite data and at NASA. It entertains and motivates people to envision their future and learn ways to achieve it. This may be the FIRST book written by a Puerto Rican woman working in the space industry as a contributor and eye witness to history! It has taken me decades of work and thousands of dollars to create this first publication. Please: > BUY & READ & REVIEW & SHARE & REPEAT
Hi would it be possible to buy a squadron patch for my collection. I was a cadet years ago, prior USAF and USN, and now a CAP patron member. If you have any other CAP patches new or used I would buy or trade for them also. If you have any older versions of you squadron patch I can also use them and I can send a return envelope Thank you Roger LaShomb 1592 Co. Rt. 38 Norfolk, New York 13667
