The unit trains for emergency services missions to support local, state, and federal operations. Our cadet program uses Emergency Services and Aerospace Education to facilitate leadership training in our local youth. Civil Air Patrol (CAP) is the volunteer Auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force with 64,000 adult and youth members nationwide. Members serve their communities through three congressionally chartered missions: Aerospace Education, Emergency Services and Cadet Programs. CAP boasts the largest fleet of single-engine; piston aircraft in the world and its search and rescue efforts save approximately 100 lives a year. CAP also gives teenagers hands-on training in leadership, teamwork, aerospace studies, and self-discipline. Our cadets and senior members value integrity, character-building skills, and active participation in meeting the needs of the communities we serve. We hope you'll take a few minutes to look through our website, become familiar with our work in our community and get to know us better.

Hi I am a patron member of Civil Air Patrol and USAF Veteran I also collect Civil Air Patrol patches and their heraldry and was wondering if I could trade, buy or make a donation for your Squadron patch. If you have any other versions of your patch or other Civil Air Patrol patches new or used I would be interested in those too. I can send a check, money order or paypal along with a return envelope. Thank you Roger LaShomb 1592 Co. Rt. 38 Norfolk, New York 13667
Happy New Year
