CAP Assists Oil Slick Containment
By Col. ~L R. Fowler, Dir. When President George Bush agreed to commit !.he nation's resources to assist in the cleanup of NOM America's worst oil spill, California Wing, United St.aLeS Air Fore Auxiliary-Civil Air Patrol CAPI pilOTS and a california wing aircraft w re requested to go to Alaska. The call came from IJ.. Col. Douglas Askerman, Deputy Chi f 0 Staff. Alaska Wing CAP, who contacted LL Col. Fred NettelI, california Wing Director of Em rgency Services, LO requ a twinengine aircraft, capable of over-water rugh to assist in th oil slick containm nt projec The california Wing Commander, Col. V. Lee White. honored th request and assigned Los Ang les Group l's Maj. Dale Rumbaugh. Studio City. Valley Squadron 128. as the pilot in command of this fTOrL Rumb ugh prepared CAP's Cessna 310 twin-engine aircra or th trip. He then recruited lWO dditional qualified pilots, Lt. Col. Guoter Ragen from Malibu, also from Group 1's Van Nuys Squadron 81 and Lt. Col. Willard Gordon from Fallbrook, a

u:

Die 0 County Group 3. Th three pilo~ took off from Van Nuys Airpon fOT th 2100 mil.e trip La Ala lea. The trip LO Valdez k 14 hours of flying time. However, the trip required v SLOpS for refuellng and two ov might stays. The Iirst overnight SLOP was ar Bellingham, washlngton, and the second at Juneau, Alaska. Navigational equipm tal two locations was temporarily not operational. which required the tw delays. Maj. Rumbaugh received information that his fioal d sunation. Valdez, was a particularly difficult airfield because appro a hes and depanurcs could only be mad from on direction. Mountains are located n all sid of the airport. with ih higbestmountaln at th d of th runway. This condition requires a steep ap proach to the runway. Rumbaugh was warned thai in the event of a missed approa • th aircraft would be required to execute a ISO degree tum and cJimb out at a gradient of 1 in 15. A.normal missed approach requires climb-out at a gradient of 1 in 40. vithout th 180 degree mrn. Porrunately when the Californi us arrived ar Valdez th weather was cJear. A Coast Guard vessel anchor d out in Prince William Sound function d as the
member of San

The california Wing aircra landed without the missed approa h procedure and the crew was mel by CAP Alaska Wing officials who escorted the Lhree pil ts to a buHding where th y could place their bedrolls on cots for a night's sl ep, The following day the pilots were briefed on their missions. The flighlS required flying at 500 feel altitude, some 250 miles OUt 1.0 the far edge of the oil spill near Barren Islands. On board the six passenger aircraft we the pilot. lWO pilot observers. lWO vid ocameramen and a plotter. Th last three were from the Department of Environrn mal Conservation of the State of Alaska. The infannation secured from the flights was assessed at the Valdez command POSl LO determine further action in the cleanup operaLion. Two missions of 3'1h to 4 hours each were required on a daily basis. . Maj. Rumbaugh said that they flew over many boats belonging to Alaska fishermen who were working in pairs with a boom a uached , They were an along the spreading oil sli k attempting LO save some of the areas. All these f!Shiog boats had been hired by Exxon to assist in the containBe pointed out that Valdez, a very small town, was crowded. and every hotel room w full of media reporters. laborers and govenunent officials. "We considered ourseJves fortunate to secure a buDding with cots 1.0 spread our bedrolls." The Alaska Wing provided cans to the California pH ts LO be used at m altime. Maj. Rumbaugh was told that Exxon had agreed to pay aU xpenses required in the operations needed to contain and clean up the oil slick.

Are You Ready For The Search Function?
By It CoL Robert Fowler, Vir. P.A. Los Angeles Group 1
An innovative search and rescue (ES) training experiment proved successful as favorable evaluation sheets show 100 percent of the students want more of this type of communication. T.heme of the training was. "Are you ready for the search function T' The presentation method was seven seminars covering search functions, a table top SAR exercise and an actual SAR training mission. The first two sessions were held at Los Angeles Group 1 headquarters, in their classroom facilities at the Van Nuys Air National Guard Base. The purpose of phase one and two was to determine if this method could improve search and rescue tSAR) operations. A total of 63 students. including 12 cadets, actively participated. Five USAF Reserve Assistanoe Program (RAP) officers observed the training. Lt. COl.Billy La Clair. who has 30 years of emergency service experience said, 'J learned things in these seminars about ES that I had never heard before." '1 recommend that you conduct another seminar and table top next year," she coneluded, The package idea of a SAR seminar, table top exercise and SAR training mission were originated by Majors Marion and Gordon Barnett. Squadron 81 and Los Angeles Group I, veterans of many SAR missions. The couple discovered that some ES personnel were not aware of the need or requirements of many of the mission base jobs. The students were found to have a limited knowledge of the coordination required and how each bit of information improved the possible success of the missions' objectives. 2LL James Newton, Squadron 81, was the project officer for the seminar and table top phase. On the first day, after a general briefing the students were allowed to select three of the seven one-hour and 15 minute seminars on various SAR specialdes, In each of these Lhree sessions the students exchanged information on how each integrated into the search function. Every seminar had an experienced ES person as a seminar advisor. Besides CAP members on the seminar staff the Los Angeles County Sheriffs office sent Sheriff Steve Sullivan to inform the students of the latest techniques in intarviewing witnesses. Following the seminars the students were organized into several mission base staffs for the table top exercise. Each staff was given information from an actual twO day SAR mission and told to establish a mission base, conduct a search based on the Information supplied by the exercise conductor. This problem had previously been used in a mission coordinatorsscbool. The third phase of the training con-tinued twO weeks later wi th an actual SAR

training exercise at San Fernando Senior Squadron 35's mission base at Whiteman Airpon. near Los Angeles. On this SAR mission most of the base staff were mission trainees, who had attended the two earlier phases of the program. Some 50 senior members and four cadets were present and took part in the overall functions, A total of eight aircraft completed nine sorties and located the tWO target Emergency Locator Transmitters. MIij. Dale Rumbaugh, Group I's Squadron 12B, was the SAR mission project officer and lLt. Diane Blanchard, Group Lls Squadron 61. was the Mission Coordinator. At the end of the three phase training a critique was held and the comments were summarized. Maj. Marion Barnett said. "We seemed to have accomplished our purpose. The students realized th need for an exchange of information. The seminar, table top and actual SAR exercise were possibly the best methods we have Iound to increase our proficiency in emergency service." Capt. Wayne McDonald, USAFR, spokesman for the three USAF RAJ' officers who bad observed all phases of the program, was complimentary about this innovative training method. •

The Thomas E. Doyle Award
One grim, cloudy day some 15 months ago in a liuJe town in West Germany, a California Civil Air Patrol graduate gave his life that a 10t of children and townspeople might live. USAF Lt. Thomas E. Doyle chose to stick with his stricken F-16 fighter plane to steer it away from the schoolhouse and the congested center of the little town of Forst. preventing it from hurtling into them. Lt. Doyle rode his plane down and died in the wreckage. The news saddened the town of Oroville, California. where Tom grew up and. the members of CAl' Squadron 141 where he was once cadet commander. But his friends agreed that that was the way Tom would have done it. Tom. started setting goals for himself in grammar school His commitment to exoellence and love of flying were evident in his Civil Air Patrol career. Tom soloed in a CAP glider at 14. He was cadet commander of CAP Squadron 141 at 15. At 16 be was chosen California Wing Cadet-of-the-Year, the youngest cadet ever to be so recognized. Tom earned his FAA single engine license at 17 and won appointment to the u.s. Air Force Academy. There he took his CFI rating In gliders and became a glider instructor pilot at the Academy. Graduating near the top of his class, he competed for and won assignment to fighter pilot training. Once while in fighter training he experienced catastrophic engine failure while in formation and at low altitude yet brought his F-15 down dead stick, saving both the airplane and his own life, a feat for which he received a 'nlctica1 Training Wins Airorew-of-Distinction citation.

Again, in Germany shortly before his tragic accident he bad successfully landed his malfunctioning P·16 at night in an act of coolness and skill for which yet another commendation was pending. Throughout his career Tom's modesty, quiet competence and friendly, "big, lopsided grin" made him innumerable friends including the German townspeople near his base. After the crash the townspeople of Forst. in reoognition of his act of sacrifice, took up a memorial fund for Lt. Doyle, a fund which bas grown through contributions of friends and family into the Lt. Thomas E. Doyle Memorial Fund. Starting this year there will be an annual award from the Lt. Thomas E.. Doyle Memorial Fund. The award will be made toward the continuing education of a California youth who is looking forward to a career in aviation or aerospace, be it as a pilot or in a ground technical field. and whose performance in school and in his/ her community has best demonstrated those qualities of character, leadership and commitment to excellence that characterized the life of Tom Doyle to whom the Memorial Fund is dedicated. The nominees must: • be high school seniors or recent graduates, • have a solid academic record tupper third of their class), • be enrolled in or scheduJed to enroll in a college or O'ad school with a science or aeronautical major this fall, • have a record of active participation in COID.'IIunilYand/or CAP aeronautical aeu vities, • have shown leadership potential. The Lt. Thomas E. Doyle Memorial Fund committee is, with the assistance of Wing HeadquarterS, soliciting nominations from throughout the California CAP Wing. Nominations for the 1989 award may be suhmitted by any California CAl' squadron accompanied by a written summary of the nominee's background, accomplishments. and career objectives prepared by his/her unit commander. Nominations may be routed through California Wing Bq. who may. if desired. add comments and who will forward all nominee packages to the Lt, Thomas E. Doyle Memorial Fund award committee as soon as possible. Review and final selection are to be made by the Lt. Thomas E. Doyle Memorial Fund committee by 1 September 1989. The award, which will be $500 this year, is LO be made at the California CAP Wing conference in September 1989. It wiU be payable to the selectee or to his educational institution.

Evaluations and Unit Visi's
By Lt. Col. Richard R. Fearing, USAF
The evaluation season is in full swing as evidenced by the Disaster Relief Evaluation IDRE) recenLly completed at Merced. This year's DRE was a demanding teSt of the California Wing's ability to support the State Office of Emergency Servi.ces during a major earthquake. Initial returns Indicate all participants benefited from the activity and We W.iDggained valuable feedback on areas requiring additional auenuon, Now attention shifts towardsthe Wing's search and rescue (SAR) evaluation and J would like to review the Dew method USAF evaluators will use to judge Civil Air Patrol's SAR capabilities in the Pacific Region. As many of you are aware, the USAFCAP Pacific Liaison Region (PLR) will use a new system to evaluate the California Wing beginning in 1989. Most importantly, the new system evaluates both the SAR mission and the Wing's training program. To accomplish this. the 1989 SAR evaluation will be in two pans: Part I will be a "DO notice" SAR capability evaluation. Pan II will evaluate your SAR training program during the Wing's scheduled SAR evaluation. These evaluations are separate and distinct. and USAF-<:AP-PLR wi.ll evaluate each at different times during the year and at different locations. With thisg neraJexplanation. let's look at the structure and purpose of each of these evaluations. Pan I will evaluate your capability La find an aircraft crash scene and successfully effect the recovery of the survivors. Again. this will be a "no notice" evaluation. and USAF evaJuat.ors will develop the specific scenario and initiate the mission. As with all our activities. a successful and safely executed mission is the objective. However. during the evaluation there will be no simulated communication or action. Those partioipating in the mission will actually contact and utilize other emergency services (ES) agencies. as required, to prosecute th mission and recover the survivors. Actual training with other agencies is an excellent way to improve the overall SAR response and capability in our state, and Part I will d t.ermine how well you manage your own assets and utilize non-<:APresources when necessary. Pan n. the scheduled SAR evaluation, will show how well the California Wing sets up a training exercise which provides quality training for SAR participants (including cadets) and how well the instructors/training provide positive feedback to We participants concerning their perform-

ements, as prescribed by USAF-<:AP-PLR. They are: MC Tra:in:ing [tabletop exercise), Route Search. Grid Target Location, EI:T Location. Ground Team Capabilities, Air! Ground Team Interface. and Aircrew Flight Checks. During the exercise. USAF evaluators will not evaluate the performance of individual participants, but will look at how well the Wing manages its training program and utilizes its training opportunities. Finally. a.brlefword on unit visits. CAPUSAF Regulations 23-1 directs close liaison wi Lh all CAP units and to conduct staff visits to all Wing units. Utilizing the Reserve Assistance Program (RAP) officers and NCO·s.our goal is to continue routine meetings with squadrons and groups plus conduct at least one, hopefully two, formal unit visits annually. These visits provide direct feedback to the Wing Commander and the Liaison Officer on the health of the organization. Each unit to be "officially" visited will be notified in advance and visits will "normally" coincide with usual meeting dates/times/locations. Areas to be observed includ AE, ES, Cadet Programs, administration, training, logistics. and the overall environment. An informal verbal outhrief will be provided. We aU share the same goal - outstanding mission performance by the California Wing. Thes valuations and visits are necessary tools, providing vital feedback to the CAP/USA:F Liaison team on how well we are doing. As a pan of the CAP team in California. the Liaison Office looks forward to your continued support and cooperation.

Change And Resistance To Change
By lLt. Robert Zamrzla Change is a necessary aspect of life. It is aU around us, in the seasons. in our sociaJ environment, and in our biological processes. Each hour of our life is different. offering us n w experiences. Why is it, then, that people tend to resist chang ? Possibly because of the word itself. The word "cbange" often produces some rather strong emotional reactions. primarily because, to moot people, change is threatening. By definition. change implies an altered situation, 8 revised way of behaving. a new way of doing something. It is an active word that conjures up visions of a rnanipulator, a dissatisfied idealist, a troublemaker, a malcontent, Safer words referring to the process of changing people are such words as education. training.orientaLion and guidance. These words connote virtuous change in accord with our value system. Some things have been learned about people and "change", but much more

ance.

This training exercise. developed and implemented entirely by the Wing, will not revolve around the usual "mishap scenario" but will consist of seven training el-

needs to be learned. There are several reasons why people like ourselves resist change. the chief ones being economic, personal and social. People resist change especia1ly when they do not understand the changes or when they are forced to change. It is very easy for a Civil Air Patrol leader or m rnber, who sees the value of a proposed change and feels adequate in taking the initial Steps to bring it about, La assume that other CAP members perceive the situation the same way. To this CAP leader. any reluctance to accept the change may seem like stubbornness or senseless opposition. In reality, however, one or more factors maybe operating to binder acceptance of the change. It is true that some people will usually accept a change without any significant-resistance. while others must be convinced. The perceptive leader can often succeed in convincing these individuals that the clumge is in the best interest of the unit. This can be done if the leader recognizes that their behavior has been based on Weir thoughts, past experiences, beliefs, prejudices, perceptions. attitudes and habit patterns formed over the years. Ifw can isolate the factors which cause resistanc to change. then it should be possible for us to find means of overcoming or preventing this resistance. We all should realize, however. that. overcoming all resistance to change is not gsnerall y possible. Nevertheless. being aware of and having some understanding of what causes resistance to change, we may be able La cope with change and resistance to it more rationally. As a Civil Air Patrol leader, you should be aware of these assumptions: 1. People change when they see a need for change. 2. Peeple change when they know how to change, 3. People change when th.ey are actively involved in We change process, 4. People change when they feel secure about changing, 5. People do not necessarily change on the basis of new knowledge alone. 6. People change when Lh yare encouraged and supported in changing. and finally 7. People change some of their attitudes and behaviors slowly. In conclusion, I would like for you to remember that you can reduce resistance t.o change by avoiding trivial and unnecessary changes. Individuals can tolerate only so much change. If they areconstandy subjected to irritating small changes, they will be less likely to accept major ones. Also, you should remember that resistance to change is not always evil. Those who introduce changes are not always right in doing so, and those wbo oppose changes are not always wrong in their conduct. Experience has shown that change can be unwise. This means, as Civil Air Patrol members. you should analyze your proposed changes. think about their effects, examine your motives, and determine if We changes will contribute to the mission of the organiza~n. •

The Reader's Corner
By Capt Wyn Selw n
Barry Schiff, airman's airman. g neral aviation guru, airline pilot and prolific auth r has had twins; wo more books bearing the titl of his 1980 classic. "Th Proflciem Pilo .. It is well that Schiff has seen fit to supply us with more aviaLionlore.because my original copy of "The Proficient Pilot" needs al least an annual inspection and maybe a complete overhaul. I highlight when I read and after about the fifth tim through, BY rything is in lovely shades 0 m uve and puce, but it's no longer possible to pick out th pithy parts, If you want nitty-gritty aviation information, written in a straight-forward and entertaining manner, Schiff is the sour e you want, He caters to the serious-minded pilot who knows which questions to ask; pilots who dem nd answers chat make sense. Th new edition of "The Proficient Pilot" startS wiLha f w kind words from a leg nd in American aviation, fellow pilot and writer Ernest K. Gann. Gann say of Schiff: "He not only understands th theories, bu he knows how to make them work Schiff n w edition starts out with the dynamics of flight.; why airplanes ny and why they often don't ny when we make impossible d man on the machines nd the immutable laws of physics. From flighL dynamics, the author moves along to proficiency and technique; how w can cause the rna hine to do what u's supposed to do. He includes an almost philosophical piece on "scud running" nd how to shorten the odds if you must pen trate th gloom aloft. It's one of the most honest treatments of a very dan emus (and dumb) thing w pilots do. Th n it's on LO the issue of "pilot-in-command" status, and who really is in command of your airplane. In some cases i could b the guy behind the scop In TRACON or someon nying you Lhrough final approach course on a dark and dreary night. TIo you remember how to find density altitude figures for your airplane1 Do you know what high density altitudes do to perlormance? Could you cope with aplomb when th engin quits at night in hard IFR conditions ... or would youjUSl apr for the fetal position and ride it in? Many 0 th answers are 1.0 be found in Barry Schiff's revised "Proficient PiloL" Next time in Reader's Carner we11 take a look at the companion book in this t.

Increased Dues
B U. Col. 'even A. Updike By now, some m mbers have already r eived their reo wal n rices reflecting increased dues All 0 us will g t th same
sri ker shock in th next f w months. Yes. it's going LO be more expensive to belong LO Civil Air Patrol. Effi ive 1 July 1 89, th National dues are being inc: a $10.00 and Wing du are being increased $5.00 for Seniors and $2.00 for cadeis, Why ar "we" doing this La "you"? (Don'lforg t "w "pay the sam dues"y u" do.l Th increase In National dues was approved by special vo of the National Board LO establish reserve fund for defense of moles arion and exual abu cases. "What's this?" you ask. "Didn't we JUSt. go througb this big program LO set n all our people to protect the cad LS from tha ?" Yes, and we win continue to scr n all Dew members and ensur at only those who have been screened are allowed LO work with Lhe cadets. But that program will only detect tho who have already been ch rged or convicted. [t will not d t the yet to be first time 0 ender or those who hav nat been charged in th past because parents chose to avoid the n toriety of a public Dial. The screening program will significantly reduce the possibility of our cadets being abused or molested. And it will certainly help when cases do arise to show that we took every reasonable precaution LO prot the cadets. Bu inevitably, there will be a case or cases) that will result in a suit being filed against Civil Air Pauol. When that happens, we must be prepared to defend and possibly sustain a judgment. Since we can no longer secure insurance against this eventuality, we must arrange or other financial protection or fa e a forced sale of our assets [planes. vehicles, radios, etc.l. The only alternative is to tax ourselves to establish a fund for that purpose. Recent judgments against other organizations

have been in amounts from $50.000 to 7, ,000. no including legal fees. So you can see th t $10 per year from every membel' (approximately 70,000 nationwide) is a moderate amoun l for this fund. Th increase in Wing dues is needed LO meet increased operating costs. Our last increase was five years ago, and as anyone who has been shopping lately knows, prices have g II1eup on everything in the last five years. We will also be incurring SOlD significant expenses in the near future as w move he headquaners. This move is necessitated by program changes in the Coast Guard. Additionally, w plan to undertake an aggressive fund-raising campaign LO secure grants and appropriations from the business sector and the Stat . Those programs are expensive LO conduct but will have considerable benefit in the future. Please understand that neither of th measures is taken without months of discussion and souJ.searcbing. All of us kn w tha th additional fees will be a burden 00 most and an obstacle to some. We appreciate the time and talents that are being donated 1.0 CAP. and hope that the request to dona' a few more dollars to strengthen the org nlzatlon will Dot det r Lhose efforts. •

Watsontlille-Santa Monica Search MobHizes Coastal Units
A pilot in a Cessna 172 with no passengers departed from WatsOnville on Thursday, January 5, in the late afternoon and failed to arrive as expected in Santa Monica that evening. MOUDtajn View Squadron 10 was one of the units alerted to open a search base on that Friday night, The base was set up at Santa Maria Airpan. Captain Bob Evans and Lieutenants Garry 1Crum and Mark Bluth fl w down early the next morning to join about 35 other Civil Air Patrol aircraf1. from around the state. A briefing revealed that the pilot had filed no flight plan, had made no known radio reports and there was no Emergency Locator Transmitter CELT)signal detected. During the flight a Pacific storm swept in. turning the entire coast ruling out almost all visual flighL The pilot was instrument rated but wasn't believed to have been currenL Search strategy was to concentrate on the possible routes the 172 could have taken; areas around airports where he might have landed, and mountainous areas which were obscured by weather during the flight, With CapL Evans flying as mission pilot, Lt. Krum as pilot trainee and LL Bluth acting as scanner, Squadron 10 members flew a total of seven-and-a-half hours on two sorties during January 7th and 8th. The first day they flew grids on the hills east of Santa Marla and on Sunday. January 7, they flew a route search to Watsonville, plus a grid in the Watsonville area. It was Lt.Bluth's first actual mission. He later told squadron members it was "amazing how many white scraps of metal and snow patches there are in the area that look Uke a Cessna 172." He also shared the typical SC8ll1l r's worry about never wanting to take one's eyes off the ground for fear of missing that all-important clue that might turn out to be aircraft wreckage. Midway into the mission Vandenburg Air Force Base provided billeting at the Visiting Officers Quarters and the crew was able to get a good night's rest. By 10 January, 20 percent of the state was blanketed by the search and a second search base was opened for a day at Watsonville Airpon on 14 January, Three senior members and three cadets from Squadron 10 reported to the base. Lieutenant Lee Barford warded as a radio operator, coordlnaung communications between search aircraft and the base at Santa Maria. Captain Richard Boucher Dew twO grids as an observer with Ray Leis from the Monterey Squadron. They criss-crossed the rugged Ventana Wilderness and the Pacific Coast south of Carmel. Meanwhile Lt. Alice Mansel also flew two grids; one as a scanner with California

Wing Commander, Colonel V. Lee White. They traversed the valleys south of Carmel Valley and discovered an uncharted, newly constructed runway carved outofa steeply forested mountain. The crew spent much of their grid-time doing contour searches of all the nearby mountain slopes. Cadet Capt. David Stamps. C/Li..Isabelle Popescu and C/ Airman Danny Evans provided ramp support and extra base duties. Tbe mission was suspended the following week, pending further leads, The Civil Air Patrol never "closes" a search mission until the objective is found. •

menr, the forms have been changed significantly to make them much easier to use. In addition, a new form has been added for supporting the Preliminary Damage Assessment (FDA). This is of particular importance to CAP members since the PDA (which used to be known as the Windshield Survey) is lh most common area where CAP members support the S/DA function. Copies of these new forms have been included with this article. Those of you that have taken S/DA training in the past will notice the changes in these new forms. The

On-Site Detailed Damage Assessment Worksheet has been made much more

Red Cross Updates Damage Assessment Training
Most CAP members involved in Emergency Services are aware that CAP has a Memorandum of Understanding with the American National Red Cross to provide the Red Cross with suppon during disaster operations. CAP support to the Red Cross includes communications, logistics, and damage assessment, CAP units and members assist the Red Cross at both the local chapter level and the national level during major disaster operations. The Red Cross provides training to its disaster volunteers and CAP members so that they can function properly as pan of the Red Cross team in providing vital disaster relief services to the American people. This training is periodically updated to refleet new procedures and regulations as well as providing update and refresher training to once trained volunteers. Recently, the Red Cross has updated many areas of training that are of interest to CAP members. In particular, the Survey / Damage Assessment (S/DA) training has been revised. CAP members provide a very important resource to the Red Cross S/DA Officer during a major disaster operation. CAP members perform both ground and aerial damage assessment, communications suppan. and transportation through difficult. disaster damaged tarrain. Because of this unique relationship, it is very important that CAP members remain current with the latest S/DA rules, regulations, procedures and forms. The Red Cross recently revised S/DA training is so new that the training materials prepared from Red Cross National Headquarters have not yet been released. However, since this training is so important, local chapter S/DA officers and instructors have received special training so that they can beginre-training existing volunteers and CAP members, Although th basic procedures and regulations have not changed very much with the revision of Disaster Services Regulation ARC 3029 Survey/Damage Assess-

comprehensive and includes important information on the reverse side to help the surveyor understand how to determine damage ratingli and remarks. The new PDA form makes the surveyor'sjob easier when conducting a PDA. In the past, S/DA supervisors were forced to send out volunteers and CAP members with only a blank sheet of paper to use for recording windshield assessments. This new worksheet makes it much easier to record vital survey data and reminds the surveyor of what types ofinfonnation should be sought out and recorded. Most Red Cross chapters are working very hard to re-train their existing volunteers with this new S/DA information. CAP members should contact their local Red Cross chapter to obtain dates for training near them. Many chapters will send an instructor out to a CAP unit to provide training. This may also be an option for your unit, S/DA training is a two-hour course and can easily be presented during a single CAP evening meeting. If your members have not yet taken the Introd uction to Red Cross Disaster Services course, this should be arranged before the S/DA class. The introduction course is also a two-hour course. It deals with the overall Red Cross disaster services program and explains about the type of services the Red Cross provides and generally how lhese services are provided during a disaster. This course is a must for all CAP members, Red Cross disaster training can be taken by anyone in the community, If you schedule training for a meeting night at your squadron, this would be a good time to invite parents (of cadetsl, spouses, and friends to attend. During a major disaster, everyone that has been trained can be of great help to the Red Cross in providing disaster relief services, David A. Rudawitz is a Ml\lor in CAP assigned to Squadron 88, Group Seven of California Wing in southern California. Besides being a Ground Team Leader, he is Chairman of Survey and Damage Assessment for the Orange County California Cba pter of the Red Cross. For more information: David A. Rud.awiu Major.

Safe Searching
By Cspt: Al Seidler
Search Base was Fox Field. !.he AllRCC-a-1027 Mission described the airplane we were looking for and the fmentlnns of the ill-fated crew. Major French was piloting the corporate 32H and I was the Observer. We were assigned Grid LA ISO. all of it. since it. consisted mostly of open terrain. It is Thursday. June 2. and I said to Jim that we have three good reasons lO make a find today: FirsL. the stars are just righL Jim places a very faint smile onto his face. Second. I said. we are a sharp crew. His smile now is a few degrees warmer. "... and what is reason #37' he asked. "It is my birthday today ... " Be extended his band with a really warm smile - "Congratula tions". It is a beautiful day, blue sky, visibility unlimited, but there are other airplanes flying too. After 45 minutes. we are in the grid. First as always. the four corners are established. The "LORAN" proves itself as a really valuable instrument. There is a 6000 fOOL mountain In the center of the grid, which we "contoursearched." and then as usual in parallel tracks back and forth. looking, looking. looking. We were about six miles south of the north-border of the grid, heading east at 500 feet into climbing terrain. when I saw the jet passing us. about 300 feet to the right. and 300 feel below us. The speed of that camouflaged hunk of aluminum was just astonishing. His shadow is catching up with him, he is close co the ground. A view to remember. We will never know if the F4 Phantom-Pilot has seen us. He had to watch the ground and also had the sun on his canopy. We were concentrating on our search again while the jet disappeared. As we reached the east end of our grid we made the U-turn for the next pass only to face another jet head-on. A black painted OV-l0. this Lime above us. We only saw him for two or three seconds. He rolled the aircraft over before be passed. probably lO keep us in sight ... Jim had a sectional on his knees. "1)0 we have a low level training route in our grid?" "Sure thing ... four of them." But we did not pay much attention to these liule gray lines. They are "ONE WAY" streets. Since these routes are subject lO change every 56 days, and the charts are reissued every 6 months, chan bulletins should be obtained from the FSS ... maybe the search base coordinator should do this for all flight crews. To observe these jets in their natural habitat is just like bird watching, as long as a few feet distance remain between the aircrafts: They look greau But read the slOry of a glider pilot who got too close. In his own words: It was the first good soaring day last spring. and strong thermals had washed me up lO 9000 feeL I beaded north toward Idylwild, but could not find good lift. So I headed south and found lift

around the lookout tower five miles east of Warner Springs airport. I was flying into a canyon when I saw a military jet come over the ridge arcing toward me. I initiated a right turn and started nosing down, but the jet was coming on very fast. I elid not wantlO bank too much because I was very aware that steep banking would increase my collision cross section. I kept hoping that the jet would straighten out and miss me by several hundred feet, but this opportunity was disappearing fast, I thought I was going lOgo through the large circular object under his left wing. which I thought was an engine and later learned was a drop tank. At about this time thejet pulled up while I brought the wing down. It looked like we would just clear, and I thought I would have to report a near miss. There was a loud bang and the glider shook. but did not yaw as be went by. My radio, which had qui; an hour earlier, came hack to life and there was dust flying around in the cockpit, I thought the loud bang had been from his wake at such close quarters but when I looked out I saw damage lOmy left wing. I then looked down and felt some discomfort at the thought of bailing out at 600 feet. I immediately initiated a very careful l80e left rum toward Warner Springs Airpon and toward more ground clearance. It. was very relaxing to see that the shipturned nicely. This led me to assume that the damage must be minor. I was relieved not to see any crashed jet aircraft in the valley. As I had dosed in to the airport, I started to announce my predicament on the radio. which caused a lot of commotion. I started to think and talk about soaring the 40 miles back to Hemet, where my car and trailer were, as I was gaining altitude again. But I was advised against it, Others pointed out politely !.hat flying back LO Hemet in a damaged glider was a dumb idea since Warner Springs was in easy reach. Others advised to check dive brakes. landing gear. slow Flight and control travel. Flying the pattern at Warner Springs I noticed a large loss of L(O. I got scared as my options narrowed on approach. I had not had time to be scared earlier. If the A-7 jet pilot had not been flying heads-up I don't think I would be writing this story. Private aircraft are allowed to fly in military low level training routes but are discouraged to do so. The rule is, as always. see and avoid. The military pilots fly at speeds between 350 and 450 knots at 200 to 1500 feet above ground. The routes are four miles wide and are traveled in an indicated direction only. I no longer ignore the little gray lines on my Sectionals, and occasionally take an extremely hard look at a speck on the windshield.

Achielling The Rank Of Eagle
By Cadet Brian Moore

One To Remember
By

etc D"na C. Hilde

CJdet Brian Moore
] never would have expected 1.0 receive the rank of Eagle in the Boy Scours until about a year ago. 1joined the Boy Scouts when I was U 1.0 make friends and to have fun. I enjoyed camping and learning outdoor survival skills. I went 1.0 many campouts and when J was the Frog Patrol Leader, my patrol won First Place at the 1986 District Camporee. About a year and a half ago I became a Life Scout. which is the rank before Eagle. I still did not expect 1.0 become an Eagle because when you have the rank of Life you still hav 1.0 earn ten mare merit badges and do an Eagle project, Tlle t.bing which challenged me most was the Eagl. service project, in which the Eagle candidate has 1.0 plan, get the materials, and coordinat;e a project which will benefit the commuw.ty. [ did my project with the Santa Ana Pire Departmam, They donated fire prevention literature and smoke detectors, My IrOOP and I went door-to-door at a Santa Ana trailer park to distribute the literature and install free smoke detectors. When all of this was done, 1still had 1.0 have a board of review (which is llke the review board in CAP - only you are not standing at attention). ] sal at a table with four Scout officials for about lWO hours while they bombarded me with questions OD where I came from and where I am going, and what willI do for scouting to pay them back for all that I have learned. Finally, on Novemher 19, 1988, I had my court of honor in which I received my Eagle. Attending was Cadet Alex ~nterberger from Squadron 68, who ~s .a good friend and intro<;luced me to Ci~11 Air Patrol which I enjoy a lot. Now, in scouting I am a Team Captain and will soon become a Junior Assistant Scout Master. I can then work with younger scouts who have not been in scouting for more than two years. •

y to the 1989 California Wing Cadet Conference, at 'Iravis APE near Sacramento, began at 0400 on Friday, 17 Fe~ ruary. Inprocessingwas supposed to begin a )700 hours Friday, but difficulties w~ encountered and it was no started until 1900 hours. Waiting in line became tiresome after 0 hour and 45 minutes and I was grateful when I was finally registered and given roommates to whom I had already introduced myself wa,s not observed as people were arrrvmg at intervats throughout the night after traveling great distances, as I had, to this wonderful event. Saturday brought breakfast, and many sleepy eyes, to the local dining hall from 0530 1.0 0730. The food was edible bur left plenty of room for improv ment, A cad .t officer's meeting convened from 0815 until 0900 ... SO breakfast time was extended for cadets. All 330, or more, cadets gathered for the general assembly at 0900. This lasted or one hour and was followed by Seminar 1. My seminar was a tour of the Travis flight line and museum; both were extremely interesting. N xt, another delicious meal from t.be dining hall. followed by second seminar, followed byanother general assembly. . The second seminar I attended consisted of the teaching of NCO developm Ol ~d responsibilities. Seminars ran behind schedul due to many cadets lacking proper directions to the seminar sl r.es. The cad t project officers had scheduled ample time for everyone to prepare for the .1989 CWCAC banquet and ball; bULunfortunately, disorganization left us with only 45 minutes 1.0 dress up. Now, you may say 45 minutes is sufficient time to primp and press; bu; with four teeDag girls and just one bathroom? No way! Somehow my t.bree roommates (and friends) and 1 made it to the banquet with time to spare, and we used the time to get comfortable in our elegant surroundings. The banquet was wonderful. Several awards were presented to cadets who had accomplished their CAP goals through skills acquired in CAP. One impromptu speech, made by a cadet colonel, who had been presented with his Spaatz Award, was especially touching. ] recall that my eyes becam misty as he reminisced about his many chan nges, failures ... and successes. The dinner and remainder of the speeches proceeded with frequent applause and laughter. Then ... the lights w re dimmed. strobe lighrs flashed, and the music ~g~ Many senior members left the huge dmmg room to converse outside in the brisk night air. The music was terrific and the dancing was even better. 1 learned that it is no easy feat to "dance the night away" without an endless supply of energy. Curfew was 0300 Sunday. Many were awake till the m.oming light. Remember - curfew was gIven to us, but NOT "lights OUL"

My journ

eu:t~w

Sunday there were more sleepy eyes and minds than there had been on Saturday even though reveille was not until 0600. Brunch was 0600 to 0900 50 most did not awaken until 0700 or later, A general assembly lasted until I~, followed by a third seminar. My third seminar was an encampment preparation class taught for bask cadets. This was followed by lunch and the fourth, and final seminar. I found my last seminar to be the most interesting. Taught by Capt. Philip Ouong, we learned the requirements f~r qualifying for our Radio Operator Permit cards. We w re allowed "hands on" radio operating and my goal is to obtain my ROP card as soon as possible. Following the last seminar, we bad to prepare a short skit which described a wing or national activity. We were to provide all information about th activity and make it appealing 1.0 all cadets watching it at the next general asse~bl y. Our skit w nt flne with only a few minor errors. We welcomed dinner Sunday evening after the long day. We then had four and a half hours of free time, which those of us who were staying until Monday morning enjoyed. Some went bowling, o.thers danced or played pool and others tried to catch up on lost sleep. Monday brought sad farewells ... but the memories are all happy ones. Take my advi e - go to the 1990 Cadet Conferen - I am. •

AFA Chapter
10 the Spring edition of the California Wing m gazine Bear Facts, th ~ornia Wing Comma.nder, Col. V. Lee Whlte, encouraged the group oommanders to es~blish contact with local Air Force ASSO(:l8lion Chapters (AFA) in their areas. Los Angeles Group Commander Capt. James Briggs checked wiLb the Doolittle Chapter, AFA, and found the chapter's area covers two Civil Air Patrol groups. To solve the problem, Capt. Briggs coordinated his efforts with Long Beach Group 7 Commander Lt. Col. Martin Hoxworth and Lt. Col. M. Roben Fowler, Deputy Commander, Group I, was designated as the liaison officer between the two groups and the Doolittle Chapter. The APA Chapter has reestablished honors for CAP members and plans to present awards to the outstanding senior and cadet selected from aU squadrons in the tWO groups. A committee of AFA members will select the single senior and single cadet winner for the greater Los Angeles-Long Beach area. This year the criteria for awards made by the Doolittle Chapter will be the same as California Wing Manual 11-), 4-9. CAP Form 120 will be used this year to insure an early implementation of the Wing Commander's desire. •

50th Anni"ersary
A search and rescue team that started 50 years ago was surprised when 125 friends and members of Los Angeles Group I's Van Nuys Senior Squadron 81 recently staged a 50th wedding anniversary party for Majors Marion and Gordon Barnett. A four foot tall cake was the first thing that greeted their eyes as the couple walked into what they thought was a regular squadron meeting. Next to the cake was a money tree decorated with several hundred dollars and on the wall above was a large photograph of the young Los Angeles couple made half-acentury ago. The golden anniversary pany was the idea of squadron commander Maj. Lew Milligan and members of the squadron. Chaplain tMaj.' Ray Lake, California Wing. performed the rededication wedding ceremonyand the couple restated theirvows to one another. The couple received the Commander's Commendation award from California Wing Commander. Col. V_ Lee White, for their special efforts in emergency service. The Barnens have previously received four commanders citations and were designated as outstanding at group, wing and region level. Later this year the Barnetts will use the funds from the money tree on a recreational vehicle vacation in Alaska and Yukon Territory.

Remembering When
By Chaplain Michael

J. Brady

July 20, 1969. the day the dream came true and America landed on the moon. It is hard to believe that 20 years hav come and gone, yet the memory and pride still remains. Having been brought up in a Marine Corps family. the space program came alive in the person of John Glenn and the other original seven astronauts. This was enough to whet the interest of a grade school student. an interest that has DOt stopped, TbeApollo I tragedy was shocking, yet it brought about a new personal interest in the space program. This i.nterest turned to immense pride as I hear the historical words. "The Eagle Has Landed:' The highlight of each summer was being transferred to a new duty station and, along the way. spending several weeks with a grandmother in Philadelphia. The family had decided to go to bed for the night, while I was determined La watch the making of history. Excitement, pride, and curiosity was welling inside me as I fought ofTsleep to watch the full coverage of the landing. A very important point of pride for me was that I bad just attained the coveted Ea-

gJe Scout Award and a fellow Eagle Scout, Neil A_Armstrong. would be the first man to set foot on the mOOD.How I watched with pride as the American nag was planted and given the honors by our explorers of space. 1felt it was a shot in the arm Cor a suffering America. The next day was ODeof being tired, but I believe that many people were tired of hearing an excited high school student ramble on about the unbelievable event. Yet, they listened and challenged me to learn more. 1 can also remember running several blocks to the drug store to pick up the issues of Time and Newsweek that covered the landing. These issues were devoured with intensity as I slowly walked home. SLOPping to capture and memorize the important aspects of the landing. It wasasifI was an unseen member of the Apollo Team and the walk home became a walk upon the moon. Yes, these were the experiences and dreams of a high school student that summermonth. They were also to become one of those few memories that people will always remember with pride and happiness. July 20, 1969 ... what memories it bas givenl What new memories It brought abouu •

During his colleg years. he became fascinated by his father's stories of grandeur and excitement while flying search and rescue missions in the High Sierras ill Squadron 42's two bird dogs and a T-34 Me.ntor. Bill soon joined the squadron as an observer trainee. Later h too flying lessons locaUy in a Cltabria and became a mission pilot trainee. n was flying th T-34 that ftnally gOt Bill really hook d n aviation, and changed his interest from a teaching .reer La a flying one. The T-34 is such a lovely Jjttle flying rnachin. balanced and fun toily. that it is a pu pIe ure, iJ piring mor intimat association with the air, Determined to hay a career in aviaLion, Bill quickly acquired his instrum nt, commercial flight instructor and rnulu-engin ratings. Early in his flying career. he was instructing near Santa Rosa, Californla, with a n w student and experien ed complete engine failure over rugged mountain terrain.

1989 California Wing Confe,.ence
By Capt. Sydney,.
Wolfe
As you should all k now by now, the Cal-

ficult, To cut down on the cos for the members. the Wing Commander decided. in 1986. to alternate the conference location between Fresno, then somewhere in Southern California, then Fresno. then Northern California. then back to Fresno.

ifornia Wing Conference is scheduJed for 22-24 September 1989 in Concord. California. With thisissu ofth l'Jear Facts, J will give you an overview of what is involved in pULtinga confi rence together and tell you a little about what w are planning. ATT

CONTENT OF THE CONFERENCE
We have heard complaints 1.0 the effect that the conference is nothing more than Wing Headquarters dictating information 1.0 th membershlp. "We nev r learn anything new." "The conference is not a dialog, it's a preaching session from Wing." In the past. that may have been true and. to a certain extent, we have no real choice. There are changes made at Region and National that we mu t pass on to the general memb rship, However, the problem is that we wind up "preaching to the choir" in that the p opl w need 1.0 get tbe message [0 are not always the ones who attend he confer n e. Theil. members who do attend do not attend the seminars. Last year, we received several cornplaluts that the 1500 and 1600 hrs. seminars were canceled. Tha was because no one showed up or there were only 1 or 2 attend es. This year. the seminars will be held in one hour sessions, beginning from 1000 hrs. Lill1500 hrs. The last seminar will be over at 1600 hrs. This should give the memb rs from 1600 to 1800 hours to socialize until the "attitude adjustment period" starts at 1800 hrs, With last y ar's conference. we added to the baok of the conference registration form a questionnaire that a m mber could fill out and get hls/her questions answer' d. Unfortunately. only about 40 people completed the form yielding about 60 questions. Maybe some think that th questions they have would be consider d "dumb". There is no such thjng as "a dumb question"! Hyou don't know om thing, the only way you will I am is LOask. Even if you did ask a socall d "dumb" question, i would tell us (Conr.imJed ... J

NOANC£

n]y about 7 to 10 perattend the Willg Conference. This amounts 1.0 about 400 to 600 people. The conference has a threefold purpose: It is intended as the social event of the y ar. bl it is a method of allowing th general membership La eommunica with Wing Staff nd Command. and last bu noll ) it is the main event wherein th California Wing r ognizes its outstandln members in the form of the Annual Awards. T have been asked what it's like to put LOgther a Wing Confer nee. Words like fun, interesting, frustrating, maddening, chaos, and th urg 1.0 kill com 1.0 mind. For the past seven years I have been involv d w01 b puuing together these conferences and each year I learn something n w. Each year, I hav tried to set them up in su h a way that they run smoother and are in resting to th general membership. Oh yes. if you see me turn into the Wing ogre. i 's because I'm gct.ing tired.

As a ge eral rule.

THE HOT L Whats involved? WeIJ, firsr the facilities. Selection of a hotel is impcrtan in that it must be large enough to accommodate those who will auend and provide a least J4 to 20 conference rooms. The price i another consideration, and brother, is that g ttlng difficult! With the rising cost of hotels, we try to p the room cost in the $50. to $60. range. As the y rs go by, that is going to become more and more dif-

d ... J that something is wrong with our training system and the issue would need to be addressed. This year, you will find on the back of each registration form space to ask several questions addressed to a particular section such as Administration. £S, Operations, etc. Please ask your questions, You can also make suggestions of any type. (Keep them clean.) (Cont.inu

your place cards, Several members let theirs fall out of the package and, as a result, lost them. This year we will have several "door prizes". Only those who register prior to 15 Augu t 1989 will be eligible for those door prizes. In addition, there will be a "mystery person" wearing a specially marked Conference Name Tag. The first person who identifies the mystery person wins the prize.

REG lSTR ATION
This year, we are including tWOregistralion forms in the Bear Fa.cts. As you know, we ha ve computerized the registtation process. If it were not for my computer, it would be an almost impossible task to process registrations, keep track of the money, account for tickets for the banquet and lunch and many other tasks, Ok, so I'm in lave with my computer. One of the things that gives me that. "old urge to klll" is the dlfficulLy ill getting members to read instructions and then follow them, Last year, for example, we received registration forms with no serial number, no name, no indication of arrival time or how they were arriving, no name for banquet guesttsl, no names of additional people rooming together, no seminars selected, and a montage of other omissions, We then have people show up expecting special treatment when they can't find their registration package and no record of registration. Tb only ones that get special treatment are the Wing Commanders, past and pre-sent. I might add that, even though they are guests of the Wing, they insist on paying their own way and hav never asked for special treatment. We do not have time, nor do we want you to wait in long lines when you arrive at the conference. You will note that there is a monetary incentive for you to register early! CAl' members seem to wait till the last microsecond to make a decision as to whether they are coming to the conference or not, A problem we have is that not everyone picks up the registration package. If you registered yourself and spouse, please, each of you should pick up your own Conferenoe Package to ensure you got what you ordered and paid for. I will have your completed 'registration forms at the conference so be sure to complete them correctly as you will not be able to buy additional tickets at the conference, except for Friday afternoon. Your banquet ticket, program, "door prize" ticket, handouts, and other material will be in your individual registration package. Everyone. please pick up your own registration package! Please do not come to the registration desk and say: ''I'm here to pick up Clifton Shlunk and Neal NorIak's registration packages." Later we have Clifton Shlunk come up to us and say: "I didn't get my banquet ticket or registration package:' By the way, please take care of your lunch and banquet ticket. We will again make the meal tickets

HOTEL REGISTRATION
This year, you will note that there is a hotel registration form included in the Bear Facts, just after the two Conference Registration forms. By including it here we ensure that. everyone gets a hotel registration fonn. Please use it and send only the hotel registration form to the hotel. Do not send the conference registration to the hotel, as some did last y ar. Just "POP" out the Conference and Hotel registration forms, fill them out and send the Hotel Registration Form to the Hotel and the Conference Registration Form to Wing along with your check(sJ.

Yes, it will take some time and energy on your part. Get help if you need it. Put the nominations together as a team. Don't you think there is someone deserving of a nomination? As with last year, we will publish all nominations submitted by each Group in the Conference Program. Take a special look at this list of people when you come to the conference. Meet them if you can. They are special! It's tOO bad they can't all be awarded. NOTE: The only ones not eligible for the annual awards are the members of the Wing Awards Committee. This is by mutual agreement of the Committee.

LOOK SHARP, FEEL SHARP,
The Commander and Vice Commander have asked me to make a few comments about how we look at the conference. There are going to be several visitors, both Slate and local government, USAF personnel. and many from the general public. We should and must put our best foot forward in the way we look and act. You know, I have been told by commanders of cadet squadrons that they will not send cadets to the Wing Conference because there are a bunch of senlors there that do no wearthe unifonn properly and set a bad example. Aocordingly, what follows is a few dress requirements at the Wing Conference: 1. 00 not wear the "poplin jacket" [wind breaker] at the conference. 2, No hluejump suits anywhere lUI 3. 00 not wear non-dress oniform to th banquet (without the blouse). 4. Do not wear pagers, radios, keys, etc., on your belt. 5. No flight suits except upon arrival, if you arrived in a corporate or private aircrafL 6. No civilian jackets with service uniforms. 7. Flight jackets are not to .be worn with service uniforms, except when flying. 8. Please check the CAPM 39-1 before coming. 9. The Banqu t dress requirements for men are, in order of preference, Mess Dress, Service Dress uniform (lODgsleeve shirt and blue blouse or overcoat), dark conservative business suit; for ladies, it's Mess Dress, Service Dress uniform or evening dress or cocktail dress. For those of you who have spouses (or guest.ls)) who are not members of CAP and want to see the sights in the area, we have an ideal location this year. First of all, the hotel is located right at Buchanan Airport, with plenty of free parking for the airplanes. There is excellent access to transportation to San Francisco, local shopping. siglusee.ing, the wine country, and Marineland OSA. Remember, the Wing Conference, as with any conference, is only as good and productive as you make it, We at Wing can only provide the forum for you to participate and communicate. We look forward to seeing you in Concord. •

BE SHARP

Throughout the year, we at Wing e hundreds of California Wing members doing an outstandlngjob for CAP and their community, This is our only real 'shot" at recognizing some of the outstanding members who put so much time and energy into the Civil Air Patrol. Last year, there were 13 annual awards available with 11 nominations in each category. That's 143 nominations possible. We received only 55 nominations in all categories. This year, a 14!.h category has been dded. That means there should be 154 nominations fro.m throughout the Wing this year. Starting on Page 4-5 of the CAWG Manual 11-1, we outlined the awards and the procedures for nominating someone for each of the awards. Please read the manual and follow the nomination procedures at the Squadron level, then the Group level. Remember, anyone can nominate anyone. Encourage your Group Commanders to insist that he/ she get a full set of nominations from each Squadron. Then encourage the Awards Committee at the Group level to get the nominations in on time. YOU can help by writing up the CAP Fonn 120 for thau individual who you think has done outstanding work in the past year. Remember, you should not write the nominee's life history in CAP, just what he/she has accomplished in the past year and why you think it was over and above the normal duties and action expected by the CAP. As a member of the awards committee, I'D give you a hint, When we review the nominations we ask ourselves "Whal did this nominee do that was outstanding, well above what is expected of the nominee in the performance of his/her normal duty?" "Did the nominee devote his time and energy to all three missions of the CAP?" We look for specific, factual information, not flowery generalities, Avoid the words 'several". "numerous", "many", etc.

Capt, James Briggs, Commander Los Angeles Group 1. approved the plan and ncouraged the participation of th group's 229 cadets. With the concurrence of Squadron Commander C8pL Jerry Perry, this special event was arranged for the cadets at squadron 35's mission base at Whiteman Airport, near Los Angeles.

During the hour driv up 1.0 Sacramemo, the four of us (Ltc. Frank Obenhaus wil.b Pacifi Region. Maj. Milo S lladv, lLt. Harold Updike. and ILL Joe LeChuga. all with Stockton Senior Squadron 72) had been discussing what we though. Wi might doing today. As detached participants in DRB Mission T-89-266 bein held in Merced, our duties were 1.0 assist experienced packet communications personnel at th Stale Office of Emergency Services. B ing a lioensed radio amateur and fond of computers I couldn't pass the chance 0 taking a closer look at h w packe radio opera . Upon our-arrival atstateOES headquarters, our group was joined by LLt. David M Ig I and Capt. Gary Strawn. both of Group 25, who along with our host L . StanJy E. Barter (also Assistant Chief of the Telecommunications Division Ior the sta OES) would m ke up Lb entire northern smff 0 this arerelse. Colonel Haner immediately gav us an orientation of the equipment in th radio room and pointed out stale OES guidelin for volunteers. He also defined the working relationship the OES has with CAP and bow CAP radio operators are welcomed by OES as volun r radio communicators. captain Strawn, who h d manned the station on friday. han showed us the printed pa ket messages !bard copy) which d come through so far. W saw th message that open d th mission, giving the mission number, calling or "AU AVAILABLE EMERGENCY SERVICES PERSON a" and staling that this was an "AIR FORCE EVALUATED MISSION" There was also the message describing the simulated disaster ...

Being passed through dlgi aters (repeaters set up to retransmit digital radio messag ) 1.0 its intended receiving tauon. 1h1ly mazing when you stop to think about It, But then again, so was this room! Pilled to the brim with more electronic gear than NASA's HOUSl.On Control, this was a regular communications of cer's dream. Loaded with everything from a Kenwood RF TS

But isn't that the purpose 0 these exercises? To train, to improve ourselves? To see what works and what doesn't? To be ready when th call for assistance goes OUL To do what Civil Air Patrol has always done ... Belp. •

Kiwi Korner
By M~j. Peggy Bee/by
A memorable part of my singing career working for the motion picture studios in background choruses. To the best of my knowledge this kind of music is not found in any other medium. The size of the chorus could vary from 60 to 200 voices, each a soloist in his or her own right. Often we did DOtSing the usual four, six, or eight part harmony common to church choirs and glee clubs; we sang orchestraLl.ons with as many as 25 to 30 different pans. I was no longer a soprano. I might be a first violin. second violin. clarinet, trumpet, flute, or whatever. And we had to sing words to these pans. And they had to be true. During early rehearsals the chorus would be accompanied by a piano. but as we entered the finaJ phase of rehearsal we would be joined by the orchestra. There could be anywhere from 50 to 100 musiclans in the orchestra. We were paid well, but the money did not make us good singers. I vocalized an hour or two every day and sometimes rehearsed for as much as 12 to 16 hours for several weeks until the director was sailsfied that w were ready to make the producti.on recording, Now, remember. Lhe director was under the produ er's gun to meet a production deadline. So his irritation with a poor per. former was not temperament. Whatever he did or said usually was akin to an aviator covering his six o'clock position. I have to confess that this effon was before tape recording and we would have to do Lh number completely through - and it had to be right. Onelitt1emistake and we would have to do it all over again. Failure of one person to sing his part correctly not only angered the director, but revealed some very abrasive sendmems among other members of the chorus and orches-

was spent

I've also worked in some excellent volunteer choruses, music groups made up of hardworking people who took their singing mighty seriously. They weren't paid in money. Their profit came from knowing that they had put in some extra effort that had paid off in professional sounding results. If they couldn't sing within the chord, they were asked to leave. Knowing that I had done a good job. doing something I loved to do, gave me more than a feeling of satisfaction. it gave me a sense of triumph. I've also served time with some organizauons, both paid and unpaid, that created some very unprofessional results. The reason was that eitber the director or the singers. or perhaps both, failed to give JOO percent of their spirit to trylng to do a beuer job than anyon had ever done before. Of course Lhe best director in the world can't turn a lazy crow into an enthusiasti lark. Row does this relate to the USAF Auxiliary? Most of us are latent competitors. We like to do our job as well or better than the person next to us. Frequently, however, we get complacent about how much we aredotng for the organization and neglect to critique ourselves to discover what we. individually, can do to improve our own performance. There can be a domino effect. This complacency can spread, and the performance of Lhe whole organlzadon suffers. Next Lime you hear a group of singers who aren't as pleasant to hear as you think they should be, consider that maybe just one of their number is outside the chord.

found this with the cadets of other units, and ] thank God. The reason that I state this so emphatically is that. every day, I teach those youths who have taken the easy way out of life. Tbese adolescent boys have, for the love of drugs, become affiliated with gangs that kill, steal, and even betray their own families. These people are the same age of our cadets, yet most of their lives are over. For most, due to their commitment to gangs, the California Youth Authority is just the start of a life that will be spent in penal institutions. Life, for some, will be very short due to the high stakes of drugs and violence. From what I have seen, it is far from easy being an adolescent in today's world.. Our youth are presented with the choice of taking the easy way out or with stntggJ..i:ng and becoming model citizens by means of hard work and example. If the daily news reports are upsetting and all hope for society seems to be lost, remember three things, First, remember our cadets and be thankful to the Alm.ighty. Second, thank and recognize our cadets in one form or another. And third, remember our commitments to our cad ts; the same commitments that can keep our cadets, and America, from falling victim to the horrible daily news reports. •

Thank God For Our Cadets! A Chaplain's Perspective
By JLt. Mich~el

Emphasis On Public Affairs Activities
The Wing Public Affairs Office reemphasizes the Importance of Public Affairs activities. All official CAP actions should have proper attention by a Public Affairs officer. Wing group and squadron level actions. as appropriate, should be brought to the attention of national and local media lelectronic and prim) and sent to internal publications such as the Civil Air Patrol News and Bear Facts. Actions by wing. group and squadron level Public Affairs officers can and should be closely coordinated. Because of the great distances in the State of California, group and squadron level PADs often are asked to cover wing level activities - or vice versa. It is a two-way street. The ehh and flow of ideas- coordination and cooperationwill certainly make the whole effort more productive. The wing Public Affairs staff, with more than 300 years of professional background experience in Puhlic Affairs. always is available to coordinate and support PA actions. If you have questions, need advice or just want to "chat"; call us. We're as close as the nearest phone. •

Thes directors were picky, but accurate. I can remember one very particular time when the director, Charles Henderson, stopped the rehearsal and, loo.king directly at me, said, '10 the second row, the soprano with the big, brown eyes ... Use them on staff three. second measure. You'll see an eighth note followed by a doued quarter, not two quarter notes. Singing two quarter notes when you should be singing an eighth followed. by a dotted quarter puts you outside tbechord. Now,lfthat notation has gone through your big, brown eyes to your brain, we will all sing what Is written Lheway I direct." The 100 voice chorus sounded better next time through - especially the sopranos. Singing in opera, both grand and light as a soloist or as a member of the chorus, I found the same rules applied. I was part of B team effort. If anyone of us did not give 100 percent to the job, th whole show was poorer than it could have been. Of course, professionals feel the results in the pocketbook. The paycheck is an incentive.

J. Brady, Chaplain Los Angeles Csdet Squadron #138 ..Another drive-by shootlng has occurred, killing two innocent people. 'T\vo suspects, both gang members in their teens, have been taken into custody. The motive appears to be retaliation for a drug deal gone bad." This is a very familiar story that we are barraged with as w sit down to watch TV or read the paper. Does this really give a fair and accurate portrayal of America's youth? After being affiliated with the Civil Air Patrol for nearly a year, I can honestly say ''NO''. I also believe that it is time that we realize the greatness of our cadets, say a prayer of Thanksgiving, and even commend our youth for their integrity and moraJ courage. As Chaplain for the Los Angeles Cadet Squadron 13B,I am amazed at how the cadets have decided, on their own, to strive to reach the stars in ways that most of us consider honorable and ethical. I have also

Santa Barbara Composite Squadron 131 Dedicates It. New Headquarters Building
By Cspt: JUy Tippo Ribbon cutting and dedication ceremonies for the new headquarters building of Santa Barbara Composite Squadron 131 was held at the Santa Barbara Airport on Saturday. April 29. 1989. Members from the other squadrons in Central Coast Group 11 joined in the ceremonies lead by the Group 11 Commander, Mf\j. Cal Monon. CllLting lhe ribbon at the entrance to the Dew facility was Karen Ramsdell, Santa Barbara Airport Director. who praised the Civil Air Patrol for its outstanding activities in the local aviation community and the city. Mrs. :Ramsdell said the city, and particularly the airport. 10 turn supports CAP. Capt. John Switzer, Commander of Squadron 131, was presented the keys to the building as well as keys to a new 15 passenger van issued to the unit by USAF. "We are very pleased to be working so well with the ci ty of Santa Barbara on this project," Switzer said and added: "The building will belp meet our CAP Missions of cadettraining, emergency services and aerospace education," Several awards were presented during the dedication ceremonies. ~. Cal Mar· ton. Group 11 commander, received the "Gill Robb Wilson Award," the highest senior member training award - level five or the ex cutive level. 10 addition, Maj. Monon received the "Brig. Gen. Charles E. 'Chuck' Yeager Aerospace Eduoation Achievement Award." First Lt. Larry Myric, Commander of San Luis Obispo Squadron ccmposne Squadron 103. was given the "Grover Lcening Aerospace Award" for completing level three training. Lt. Cot Joe Franco and 1st Lt. Warren Crain, from Squadron 103, received Certificates of Recognition for Lifesaving for Outstanding Humanitarian Service." Last De ember, the two new a CAPLOT mission which saved three lives. According to capt. Switzer, Sq. L31had occupied another building on the airport for some 26 years and the facility became outmoded in meeting the needs of the unit.. The Santa Barbara Airport Administration offered the new facility and it took the members of the squadron about eight months to refinish the building. The new quarters include: a briefing room, a classroom. communications cenier with state-of-the-art HF, VHF radios and a computer. Also the building has of· fices for the Group Commander, squadron Commander, Cadets, logistics and administration. The Squadron has an erner-

gency generator to power the facility and plans are to provid emergency power to the adjacent Emergency Operations Cen· ter for the City of Santa Barbara. •

Retired Wing L.O. Honored
By Maj. D;,vid A. Rudawitz How do you honor someone who ha given dedicated and faithful support to Civil Air Patrol far beyond the call of duty? This question faced Lt. Col. Martin Boxworth, the commander of Long Beacll Group 7, and the members of his executive committee last fall on the eve of the retirement of Lt. Col. Phillip Loper. USAF. the California Wing CAP Liaison Officer. The usual plaques, cenilicates, and speeches just did not do justice to provide a lasting reminder of the years of service LL Col. Loper performed in the support of California Wing. California Wing Commander, Col. Lee White. during a Commander's meeting at the recent California Wing Conference, initiated the Iirst discussions regarding honoring Colonel Loper. Colonel While proposed a consolidated California Wing recognition. However, inspired. by the discussion at this meting, Group 7 Commander HoxworLh and his staff came up with a most unique and fitting method to honor Colonel Loper. Because of his support of California Wing's Emergency Services programs, it was decided that Group 7 would, in the name of the colonel. purchase an alerting pager for each a its nine squadrons and two flights and two for Group 7 alerting. Thus the Lt. Col. Phillip Loper Memorial Pager Fund was established. According to Capt. Chris Muir. Group 7 Communications officer, $420 was se aside in a special fund to purchase the 13 used tone and voice pagers that would be renovated and put on the California Wing Emergency Services paging system frequency. These used pagers are corning out of commercial service in Nonhern California. They are being refurbished for CAP service by Capt, John Downey of Group 12 Headquarters. The entire system was to be fully operational by summer. Each pager will be set to respond to the "all call" alerting tone which is used on most all alerting for emergency services missions and ELT DF searches. Wit.h these pagers, Group 7 hopes lO improve its overall response lO requests for emergency services missions. According to Colonel Hoxworth, there ar over 90 member owned or member maintained aircraft within the almost 900member. Long Beach-based group. Colonel Hoxworth said that "this alening capability greatly improves both Group 7's response and that of CAP 10 Southern California." With better alerting. more personnel can be contacted to respond to emergency services and disaster relief missions.

Time is often very critical in the response to ES and Disaster Relief missions. Experience with the paging system has shown that it can greatly reduce the time for personnel to be able to respond in an emergency. With an average of a mission every three days, this response capability can have 8 significant posiLive impact on CAP's overall response. It was felt Lhat no better way would perpetuate the memory of the year's honorabl service by Colonel Loper as the California Wing CAP Liaison Officer. In this manner, he continues to provide d istinguished service even while retired. For more information please contact; Maj. David A. Rudawitz Public Affairs Officer Long Beach Group 7

Fir.t Solo Flight
By C/Capt. Scott F. Giffin
It doesn't seem to be that big a deal when you think about it. However, when you are sitting in a plane as a student pilot with your hand on th throttle, feel on the rudders, and microphone next to your mouth, there seems to be some slight second thought. My instructor. John, and [ had just touched down on MCAS El Toro Runway 3 after my completion of three near-perfect touch-and-goes, and taxied across several runways to our point of origin on the airfield. At this point. he then took my logbook. unstrapped. wish.ed me luck and exited the Cessna 152. Up to this time, I had really wanted ID solo and was surprised at my seemingly calm state of mind at this final moment. I looked at t.he empty space where John wasn't, hit my push-to-talk switch and requested southwest depanure from the lOW' er. The height of my nervousness was reached as I taxied out onto the runway and lined up on the center line: after I had opened the throttle and began rolling I seemed to be too busy to be worried. Once airborne. it really seemed fun ... the airplane was much lighter and climbed faster, and I could square my comers in the pattern better by having more airspeed and making Steeper turns. The first touchand-go was very comfortable and I made mental preparation to try to put it in the carrier box next time. (El Toro Runway 34 Right has a ca.rrier box painted on the lefthand side of the runway, and presents a challenge to all Aero Club pilots ... as well as military aviatorsu, While flying my downwind, an EA-6:B Prowler ripped by overhead and was given immediate landing clearance. I went ahead with my power reduction and put the Cessna into landing configuration while following the jer down with my eyes ID spot his touchdown poinL and make preparation to land beyond him so as La avoid wake turbulence.

FIRST SOLO FLIGHT

head off many problems before they become serious. In group, the group Chaplain is an important staff member. He is trying to secure chaplains or visiting clergy for each squadron in the group, offer training as needed for Squadron Chaplains, and serve the senior member constituency of the group. Chaplains usually have many years experience in relating to people, planning. analysis, problem solving, organizing, delegating, and other things ministers, priests and rabbis do in their local congregations. They are used CD large organizational needs and management procedures. Not every issue, problem or item at a staff meeting will .be addressed by your chaplain, but when appropriate. he will comment or offer ideas. At search bases, you may see the ChaJT lains wandering around the flight line seemingly admiring parked aircraft. ActUally, they are making their presence

known to flight crews. Sometimes, crews want the chaplain to walk over CD their aircraft and say a prayer for their safety and for the search target occupants. Sometimes they don't, Chaplains do not force themselves on others, but they like others to know they are there for them. We also are there to meet with the family of the missing pilots and passengers in the event they visit the search base. We point out there really isn't much to see at search base. but a lot is being done. If the MC bas briefed us properly. we can assure the anxious family that we are looking everywhere, systematically. and we are deeply concerned about finding the lost aircraft and people aboard. Finally, Chaplains are just like every other CAP member - servants. While the contrary has been reponed to me, the chaplains J know are not using CAP CD further the growth of their churches, or for opportunides to convert others [0 their own faith. We Simply want CD help CAP in its mission. and that mission includes the Chaplain. •

Use Your Chaplains
By Qpl. Floyd Lord, CbilpJ.,ln Chaplains in Civil Air Patrol can be very useful just, in the chaplain's role. if you know how to employ their talents and training. However, it has been my experience CD be either inadvertently or deliberately left out of CAP events because cornmanders simply did not know what to do with chaplains, and I did not know (then) how to inform them. At Squadron level, chaplains are primarily responsible for the Moral Leadership program. which is a valuing program for cadets. Moral Leadership is a requirement for cadet advancement, and its completion must be verified by the chaplain before the cadet can be promoted, at least according to regulations and the Cadet Achlevemem Program chan. Chaplains. according to 265-1, also interview, encourage and counsel cadets in their advancements, advising them of their next requirements for promotion. At encampments, chaplains not only provide the Moral Leadership program, but offer counseling, assistance in understanding and accepting the encampment training' SOP, offer services of worship as required, and are usually willing and abJe CD help encampments in many other ways. Never forget, your chaplain is a staff member and should be notified of all staff meetings in time to attend. He should also be provided a daily schedule of all activities. Your encampment chaplain will often spend more time with the cadets than Tactical Officers do if.he knows the daily schedule for the encampment and thus

Bones To Pick
The body of every organization is made from four kinds of bones: There are the Wishbones, who spend all their time wishing someone would do the work. Then there are the Jawbones. who do all the talking but very little else. And the Knucklebones, who knock everything anybody else tries to do. But fortunately every organization has some Backbones, who gel under the load and do most of the work!
