 REMINDER ANNOUNCEMENT 
Temporary Uniform Restrictions
With all the news headlines, I'm sure you are all aware of the 
current environment of unrest crossing the nation. As a result of 
this, and until further notice, I want to temporarily restrict the wear 
of certain CAP uniforms; Blues, BDUs, ABUs or Flight suits. Wearing of the polo and gray pants may be the best solution for any upcoming missions, including COVID-19 missions. Cadets who have no other uniforms can wear black shirts and khakis or jeans. Your safety is of my utmost concern, and I don't want our important work with mission support to 
be hampered because of public unrest. Thanks for all you do and for your cooperation in this matter. Safety is the primary concern 
for this action.

cyber criminals use against businesses every day, and learn a

2021 Cadet Competition Postponed 
I'm sure it comes as no surprise that I am announcing the official postponement for Cadet Comp this year. Washington is still not where we need to be when it comes to the pandemic, and 
regardless of that - teams have not had time to practice and 
prepare for a quality competition. As such, we will be postponing
 until late winter/early spring 2021. Keep an eye out for updates as we finalize the new schedule. Thanks all and please stay safe!
Cordially,
1st Lt Cassidy Ratayczak, CAP

Happy Birthday, Civil Air Patrol 
Civil Air Patrol's Iowa Wing joins other CAP units across the 
 nation today in observing the organization’s 79th anniversary. 
Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds has proclaimed Dec.1 as “Civil Air
 Patrol Day” to mark the organization’s 79th anniversary and recognize the value that CAP volunteer members provide the 
state through emergency services, cadet programs and
 aerospace education. The city of Cedar Rapids will likewise 
proclaim “Civil Air Patrol Day” at its City Council meeting today, 
said Col. Jonathan Lartigue, Iowa Wing commander. Similar proclamations have been made by the mayors of Dubuque, 
Waterloo, Cedar Falls and Burlington, he said. CAP was founded Dec.1, 1941, by a group of aviation enthusiasts and private pilots 
who wanted to donate their time and aircraft to protect the nation’s coastlines and perform other critical civil defense missions. Their wartime volunteer service was recognized with a Congressional 
Gold Medal in 2014. More About 'Civil Air Patrol Day'
