From the national Commander 
Due to the hard work of members at every level in reaching out to their congressional representatives onCapitol Hill during the past few weeks, CAP’s voices concerning our federal budget have been heard.However, like other agencies funded with federal dollars, we are awaiting a decision on how CAP is goingto be affected by sequestration. The impact could be significant. Also, many critical programs, includingthe CAP Volunteer magazine, are supported with corporate funds, and the list of needs from this budgetcurrently exceeds our resources. One cost-saving measure we are putting into effect this fiscal year affectsthe CAP Volunteer magazine. The next two issues (April-June and July-September) will be publishedonline only and the funds earmarked for printing will be used to support other critical CAP requirements.Later this fiscal year, once the 2014 budget picture becomes more clear, I will carefully review CAP’soptions and make a decision about printing the magazine again in the future.Below is a summary of the great articles you will find in the April-June issue of the CAP Volunteer. Thereare two videos included as well. One captures the excitement of the New York Stock Exchange bellringing (page 6) and the other features a CAP encampment in South Korea (page 56). I hope you enjoyreading our phenomenal stories of service, dedication and commitment and that you will find innovativeways to make the magazine available to members who do not have online access.SincerelyCHARLES L. CARR, JR.Major General, CAP National Commander 
NC Wing Kicks off Glider Program
Yesterday (March23, 2013) capped a nearly 9 month effort in the initial phases of the launch of the NCWG Glider program. Alarge contingent of NC wing members traveled to Danville VA to participate in an intense glider operation that at the end of theday paid off in terms of productivity. As of now, NC is fully prepared to launch its glider program. We have a full cadreincluding 2 wing tow pilots (plus Col. Ragland, Middle East Region Commander), 2 glider pilots, a glider operations coordinator (Air Boss) and a fully trained and qualified ground operations team.Yesterday marked several milestones in the growth of the NCWG glider program. Lt Col Craig Winkelmann (MER-NC-048) andCapt John Cole (MER-NC-022) completed their training and were signed off as glider tow pilots. Capt Cole received his 4required glider rides with CFI-G and National Vice Commander, Brig. Gen. Vazquez. Additionally 2nd Lt. Calvin Mayo (MER- NC-079) received his Form 5 in the L-23 glider with Brig. Gen. Vazquez serving as check pilot.1st Lt Ricky Jones, MER-NC-079/CC who was NCWG's first Form 5'd glider pilot - flew his first Cadet Orientation flight in theglider with a cadet from VAWG.Capt. Marcus Howard (MER-NC-048) also received 2 instructional flights with Brig. Gen. Vazquez in the L-23 glider.Ground personnel who completed their training include Capt. David Nelson (MER-NC-079), Capt. Marcus Howard (MER-NC-048), Capt. Cory Johnson (MER-NC-121), Lt. Col. Craig Winkelmann (MER-NC-048), 2nd Lt. Calvin Mayo (MER-NC-079), 1stLt. Ricky Jones (MER-NC-079) and Capt John Cole (MER-NC-022). Additionally I qualified as Glider Operations Coordinator (aka Air Boss).Thanks to the support from VAWG over the last 9 months as well as Gen Vazquez and the coordination efforts of Capt ShawnMcComas (NC/DO) and Lt Col Craig Winkelmann, NC is now in position to jump start its glider program with a fully qualifiedcadre of personnel.There will be much more information coming out about the glider program and its implementation.
