Filed under: Anderson Regional Airport — lessie @ 2:44 am


Civil Air Patrol. The plane was situated by itself near a hanger, apart from the main body of the Anderson Regional Airport. As I stared at its name and logo, it dawned on me that I had no idea what CAP was and couldn’t begin to describe what it did. Thank goodness for Google.

I was amazed to discover that the Civil Air Patrol is a nonprofit organization of more than 56,000 volunteers, serving as an auxiliary to the U.S. Air Force. According to its Web site, CAP performs 90% of inland U.S. search and rescue — as well as many other significant missions mandated by the U.S. Congress. I am still floored that this important organization of volunteers exists in my community and I never knew. (Maybe that says more than I would like about my community awareness!) The Anderson Composite Squadron Web site is here.
