It is with a heavy heart that I announce the passing of one of Wisconsin Civil Air Patrol’s long-lasting members. On Friday September 11, 2020 Lt Col Rich Peters passed on to his next mission. Lt Col Peters was a member of Civil Air Patrol for 50 years! Holding many positions in his time in Civil Air Patrol from finance, communications, emergency services, personnel, and professional development. During his time in CAP he mentored many seniors and cadets. Lt Col Peters was a member of Milwaukee Composite Squadron #5, Mitchel Composite Squadron #9, and finally in Timmerman Composite Squadron. His humor and knowledge will be greatly missed. Fly high Rich as you will be truly missed.
