MARTINSBURG, W.VA. martinsburg@herald-mail.com Ashley Wilson has sky-high dreams. The Jefferson High School student hopes to enroll in the United State Air Force Academy, obtain her pilot's license and become an emergency doctor while serving her country for at least eight years in the Air Force. Wilson, 17, said she joined the local Civil Air Patrol (CAP) unit in part because it offered her a chance to fly. Wilson and the other members of the local CAP unit were the subject of a proclamation unanimously approved by the Berkeley County Commission on Thursday, making July 4-11 Civil Air Patrol Cadet Week.

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.

About 100 volunteers from the Maryland Wing of the Civil Air Patrol, collaborating between air and ground forces, sought out the wreckage of two downed planes, delivered badly needed blood to Cumberland, Md., and took surveillance photographs of an undisclosed power plant Saturday using Hagerstown Regional Airport as their mission base, Maryland Wing spokesman Steven Solomon said. Civil Air Patrol squadrons from across the state performed the activities as part of a biennial evaluation by the U.S. Air Force in conjunction with the Maryland Emergency Management Agency and Department of Homeland Security, Solomon said.

martinsburg@herald-mail.com A lifelong Berkeley County resident and nearly 35-year member of the 167th Airlift Wing has been named as the unit's air commander, making it the first time since the 1970s that two commanders will oversee the base, officials said. Col. William R. Gain, 53, who currently serves as the unit's vice commander, said one of his main priorities as air commander will be to focus on the unit's full- and part-time Guard members. C-130 planes, worth $34 million each, are worthless if people cannot fly and maintain them, said Gain, of Martinsburg.
