The work of volunteers impacts all of our

lives, even if we are not aware of it.
-Anthony Worrall-Thompson

FROM NCR/CC: As directed from our National Commander, Maj. Gen. Amy
Courter, Colonel Steve Kuddes is forwarding the following information stating:
Even though NCR was not involved in the search for Steve Fossett, we are not to
discuss the search with anyone. If any member is contacted and a request for information is made, the Nebraska Wing member needs to contact Colonel Bob Todd
immediately and he will in turn notify me.

Subject: Fossett memo re: no disclosure/conversation

CAP has been made aware of additional recent information requests regarding the
search for Steve Fossett. The CAP position regarding information dissemination
has not changed, and should be reinforced quickly to all wings involved. Wings
without member involvement in the Fossett search should be similarly reminded of
OPSEC, in general.
As you know from the OPSEC training, OPSEC deals primarily with protecting sensitive information. In this situation, any discussion of the Fossett search, even information about a members own role, is not to be disclosed. Should anyone be contacted, they should IMMEDIATELY CONTACT THEIR WING (or REGION) COMMANDER and this information should be transmitted up the chain of command.
Repeat, they are not to contact their immediate squadron or group commander,
but to contact a Wing or Region Commander directly. The NLO, and Wing and Region Legal Officers should be contacted by their respective commanders, who will
then contact the CAP/GC.
Im hopeful that this message has provided enough guidance regarding CAPs position on information disclosure regarding the Fossett search, in particular, and in Air
Force Assigned missions, in general. Have members requiring a refresher go
to for more information.
Please disseminate this to your wings immediately, for dissemination to all members.

Best Regards,
Amy S. Courter, Maj Gen, CAP
National Commander
