By Major Joe Ely Carrales, CAPDear CAP Fellows,Our second week of CAP Avia-tion training has been very successful. Ishould like to thank everyone who hasmade that possible, both within the unitand from without.What was done these past twoweeks will serve as only a mere beginning.We have learned a great deal about CAPaviation and how to put it into practice.As I prepare the materials for the 2007 Holiday Party, I am left with a verywarm feeling inside. We have accomplished a lot this year.
 What is it that keeps CAP alive? What is it that drive and nourishes the marrowof the local CAP Unit? What is it that makes a unit successful? This is a series of ques-tions that has occupied my mind these last few weeks. I should say that it should occupyall our minds, for it is in the address of those questions that our unit will continue togrow and prosper.First of all, I think the primary starting point is for people to “take ownership”of their unit. To refer to it as “My Squadron.” As a commander I often steer away fromthat sort of rhetoric out of fear people might think me less than humble. But, I submitthat it has to be “MY UNIT” to each of us. That is what turns it into being “OURUNIT.”This idea came to me while watching cadets practicing their drill at Kingsville.It struck me that an element works at its best when each of its members is strong in theirfundamentals. Thus, when an order is given, the greater part of the unit gathers its preci-sion from the strength of the individual. Each of us must be like that to OUR UNIT.Strong CAP Officers and Cadets are the driving force of Strong Units.The key is an effective staff. Each of us taking our part of the unit and workingin concert with each other to make it happen. Personnel and Admin Officers keeping uscentered in record keeping, Public Affairs Officers keeping us informed, Cadet Pro-grams Officers doing their best to build that area and Air Ops organizing the flying.Our next big tasks will be in the areas of COMM and GROUND TEAM. 1st LtMike Garmon leading the one and cadets attending the Ground Team School leading theother.-

On Un-funded Missions and the Numbers they Generate
 Lt Col Brooks Cima, CAPTexas Wing Director of Emergency Services
Texas Wing—
I am very pleased that many of you are doing un-funded training -that has always been the core of our volunteer organization! In order to maximizethat training, please follow these guidelines:1. In order to get a training mission number for ground team training you must sub-mit an Ops Plan to me two weeks in advance of your activity. Be sure to includetraining objectives and safety information in your plan as well as local medical facili-ties. Once I have reviewed the plan, I enter a request in WMIRS and send the plan tothe Wing Commander. The NOC approval and Wing Commander approval generallytakes 3-4 days. Please use the attached template for your OPs plan.2. Un-funded aircrew training for a C mission should be submitted in the same way as ground training. If you wantan un-funded B mission (additional insurance) you must submit six weeks in advance to meet our approval win-dow and the 30 day Air Force requirement.3. Other Wing-scheduled training, such as the upcoming AFRCC course, may be issued a Texas Wing trainingnumber. This number may be used for prerequisite and task accomplishment but not mission sorties. Your tasksshould be signed off by a Texas Wing Evaluator. Check the list BEFORE you train.4. Other non-CAP training, such as FEMA, Department of Homeland Security, etc. may be considered for a TexasWing training number and prerequisite/ task sign-offs. In order to accomplish this you must submit a course de-scription or training objective list from the instructor or sponsoring organization. Submit this and your SQTR tomyself or one of the Assistant Training Officers and we will do our best to match up some of the training objec-tives with CAP tasks. Please keep in mind this only includes classes that are not normally a part of CAP curricu-lum/requirements.Since any of the training entered in WMIRS requires the Project Officer toenter sorties, work with your Group or Wing staff to secure WMIRS accessprior to requesting an un-funded training number. Paperwork (sign-in sheets,104s, 109s, ORM, vehicle sign-in sheets, etc.) must have the first page of theCAPF 115 attached as a cover sheet and the package should be sent to WingHQ for filing within 72 hours of activity completion. Please submit a simplelist of the training completed so that we can keep a running list of the un-funded training completed in order to lobby for more training funds in the fu-ture.If you have questions about any of these guidelines or requirements, pleasefeel free to contact me.
