Civil Air Patrol travels to Ohio

June 13, 2005

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Members of the Civil Air Patrol traveled on June 4 to the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio.

The group flew to the base courtesy of Martinsburg's 167th Airlift Wing of the West Virginia Air National Guard, which provided a C-130 for the 28 CAP members from the Martinsburg and Morgantown, W.Va., squadrons.

During the flight, the crew answered questions and allowed visits to the cockpit.

In Ohio, the cadets participated in a scavenger hunt at the base while the senior members toured the museum.

CAP, an official U.S. Air Force auxiliary, is a nonprofit organization with nearly 62,000 members nationwide. It performs 95 percent of the continental U.S. search-and-rescue missions.

Volunteers also perform homeland security, disaster relief and counterdrug missions, and take a leading role in aerospace education and as mentors to more than 27,000 enrolled in the CAP cadet programs.
