Access OF CAP Members TO U.S. Military Installations
1. As the official auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force, Civil Air Patrol works closely with Air Force, Reserve, National Guard and other U.S. military units. This close relationship, together with the fact that a number of our units meet on military installations, makes it necessary for some CAP members to have access to military bases. 2. One of the objectives in our 2013-2014 Strategic Plan is to explore military installation access for CAP members. Therefore, to find out what problems are currently encountered at the local unit level in regard to access to military installations, and to find acceptable solutions to these problems, we have developed a questionnaire that can be accessed by unit commanders at https://missions.capnhq.gov/dynasurvey/survey/Survey2.cfm?ID=33 3. Please complete the questionnaire online by 3 June 2013.
