Review from Guidestar
July 14, 2013

I have been a senior member with this squadron for three years, I currently hold the rank of Captain. Back in the mid 60's to early 70's I went through the cadet program.

We offer many opportunities, for cadets to learn how to fly, emergencies services, International Air Cadet Exchange,
this is where cadets and seniors have the chance to visit one of 18 different countries and learn about their aerospace education programs.

Many of out cadets have chosen a carrier in the military and have been selected to attend different military academies. So chose to start their own business.

We attend a camp for underprivileged youth for a week so the can see life from a different point of view, that life is not all negative.

In December we place wreaths on veterans graves at Willamette National Cemetery.
The cadets get a chance for orientation rides in the Cessna 180's, there are different encampments they can attend. And that is the short list.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get the word out better to the public about all that is offered.

I'm the cadet commander of the Columbia Composite Squadron, Civil Air Patrol. Every year we run the gamut from distributing Thanksgiving baskets to low-income people to assisting for more than a week at a camp for under-privileged kids at risk for gang and drug activity to participating in Veteran commemoration ceremonies. Internally, we teach cadets discipline, leadership, how to march, how to polish boots and iron uniforms, etc. Cadets also have the opportunity to fly in both civilian and military aircraft, get some pilot training through the Air Force, to be trained rigorously by military special forces, do colorguard, participate on search and rescue teams recovering downed aircraft or lost hikers, among many other activities. It's a great program which I strongly urge any teenager from 12-18 or adult to join. Adults have their own track they can follow. For more information, please go to www.gocivilairpatrol.com.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my life as I have volunteered with it for many years.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Try and make it more visible. Civil Air Patrol is not known about by the majority of Americans though it does just as much or more than the Boy Scouts.

What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

Make it more visible.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

Yes. It has given me the knowledge and drive to get into a military academy and become a fighter pilot.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

It was awesome to play an important role as a part of a team effort.
