The Today Show has a regu-lar segment entitled “Where inthe World is Matt Lauer?” TheToday Show host travels to dif-ferent locations around the worldand reports the news and informa-tional pieces about the local areaor country he is in that day. I’vebeen in the Texas Wing for justover two months now, and I seesome similarities. Unfortunately,I can’t compare myself physi-cally to Matt Lauer. He’s younger,slimmer, and not “folically chal-lenged” like I am. But I can relateto his occasionally grueling travelschedule. I’ve made a concertedeffort to get out and meet as manyTexas Wing folks as I possiblycan. Since the Wing Conferencein April, I’ve been to the WacoSAREX, Amarillo Flight Clinic,Unit Commander’s Course inDecatur, Group III CommandersCall and CAC meeting in Addison,the SAR Evaluation in Houston,Low Level Survey Mission inWichita Falls, Flight Academyin Houston, Cadet Encampment,GSAR, Communications School,and PAO Academy in Paris, aparade in Richardson, and an SLSin Austin. I have not been able toget to San Antonio or South Texas,yet, but I did spend some qualitytime with several of their GroundTeam Leaders at 0:00 AM a weekor so ago when I was IncidentCommander of an ELT mission
Where’ Col smith?
 just north of there at BulverdeAirpark. There’s plenty more of Texas to visit and lots more TexasWing volunteers to meet, and Iplan to keep doing that. The scen-ery changes quite a bit betweenWichita Falls and Houston. Theyhave a lot more green on that sideof the state. But, one thing doesn’tchange no matter where I am.Everywhere I go, I meet a lot of great people, who are in CAP forthe right reasons, and are doinggreat things for our organization,our state, and our Nation. I want tothank them and YOU for contrib-uting so much to our Missions forAmerica. Together, we are mak-ing a difference. I look forward tomeeting each and every memberof the Texas Wing, and hope tosee you at an activity in the nearfuture.
