 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 khkis 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 thismatter. Safety is the primary concern for this action.

 REMINDER ANNOUNCEMENT 
ATTENTION: WAWG AIRCREW
Last July the National Commander announced an initiative to improve the Aircrew Professionalism of all CAP Aircrews. 
 Part of that initiative is the requirement of all CAP Aircrews must complete the Online Aircrew Professionalism training available in the AXIS Training Program available in eServices. To date only 57% of the WAWG pilots and aircrew have completed this training leaving a significant number of pilots and aircrew that still need to get this training completed. Failure to complete this training will result in CAPNHQ removing your aircrew qualifications until you have 
completed the training. Time is running out and so if you 
have not already completed the Aircrew Professionalism Training please login to eServices and complete the training before you find your aircrew qualifications revoked by CAPNHQ

The Aircrew Professionalism training can be found once you login to eServices > Online Learning > Learning Management System > Go To AXIS >. If you cannot find the "Aircrew Professionalism" course on the AXIS opening page type Aircrew Professionalism in the search box and complete the required training.

Please do not delay getting this training completed.

WAWG Director of Operations

 REMINDER ANNOUNCEMENT 
WAWG AFA Cyber Security
 Important dates for future CyberSecurity opportunities: 

CyberCamp - Summer 2020 - a WAWG AFA CyberCamp will
be organized for the end of July, and for similar prices as this year (Full-time Student Cadets $310, Off-site Student Cadets $130, Staff Cadets & SM $170). Note that we might need to
make some price adjustments depending on the hotel quotes of summer 2020. Camp will be opened to cadets and senior members interested in learning about cybersecurity and/or to start or join a team in their units. So plan your budget and
your schedule in advance to be able to attend.

I would like to thank everyone who helped organizing this camp and/or who volunteered to come and help, and
especially to those who registered to our first attempt to
doing a cybercamp in Washington.

I apologize for the inconveniences that this cancellation 
might cause you,and I look forward to working with you in
the near future.

 ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE NATIONAL COMMANDER 
18 JUN 20 
Civil Air Patrol's response 
missions reach 'epic levels, continue to grow every day' 
For the last few weeks we have discussed the civil unrest 
that has broken out across the United States and what we 
in Civil Air Patrol can do to make a positive difference in ourselves and in our great organization. Our efforts in this 
vital area will continue, and I will work with our senior
 leaders on specific actions we will take to help move the organization forward. 

Our very long journey on this path called COVID-19 
continues, though I find it encouraging to see how much progress we have made in moving forward from our
 Phase 0 levels of restrictions. As of this morning, seven 
wings have already moved into Phase II and 22 wings are
 in Phase I. Plans from several more wings are under evaluation for movement into Phases I and II. 

In the meantime, your actions in support of our
 communities, states, and nation have reached epic levels 
and continue to grow every day. In Civil Air Patrol’s largest campaign since World War II, you have contributed over
 19,000 volunteer days. You have delivered some 4.2 million meals, 1.5 million masks, 556,000 pounds of bulk food, and done so much, much more on 2,224 ground sorties and 585 
air sorties. On top of that you are innovatively engaged in doing the business of Civil Air Patrol. You are plugged in virtually, training, educating, and advancing. You amaze
 me and inspire me! Thank you for your wonderful contributions and dedication to this great organization. 

I believe that the peak of the pandemic is behind us, but 
that doesn’t mean we are out of the woods or we can
 quickly get back to the way things were before March. The recovery will be slow, there will be spikes in numbers of infections in parts of the country, and we very well may live with some levels of restrictions until an effective vaccine is available and widely administered. In the meantime,
 continue to exercise wise safeguards. Taking care of yourselves will help you to take care of your loved ones
 and allow you to make a difference in your communities, states, and our nation. 

Thank you. Please be well, be safe, and be strong. 

Maj. Gen. Mark Smith 
National Commander/CEO

CAMPS INFORMATION & REGISTRATION: 
Cadets must at least have their CURRY ACHIEVEMENT completed prior to attending their camp.
REGISTRATION DEADLINE is 12 JULY 2020 at 23:59 or

JROTC programs.

There will be 2 AFA Cybercamps held ONLINE, one standard camp in the morning and one advanced camp in the 
afternoon. You should plan for 4 to 5 hours per day for 5 
days. The camps will be taught by WAWG instructors 
(cadets NCO & officers, senior members and computer/cyber security specialists) in a Google Classroom environment 
using Google Meet for remote interaction. One of our special guest instructor is US Air Force Captain Paul Lucero, a 
military cyber specialist presently instructing at the US 
AFROTC program at the University of Washington, Seattle.

Standard level camp does only require students to have 
some experience working on a computer for school to make sure they are comfortable navigating around in it.

Advanced level camp has prerequisite experience or 
knowledge needed since this camp expects students to 
have done the Standard level camp first, and it goes at a
 faster pace than the standard one: 
Having actively participated in at least one AFA CyberPatriot season; and/or 
Having actively participated in at least one AFA CyberCamp; and/or 
Having actively participated in at least one CAP Cyber
 Academy; and/or 
Having had prior cyber security training; and/or 
Having prior system administration knowledge; and/or 
Being a high-school student, or entering high-school in Fall 2020, who feels comfortable with computers, and who feels ready to be challenged. 
All advanced cadets will specify their computer experience in the designated section of the registration form. 
Schedules: 
Standard camp - Instruction & practices starting at 08:00 
sharp until 12:00, followed by Q&A and guest speakers from 12:00
 to 13:00; Advanced cadets are welcome to attend that last hour. 
Advanced camp - Instruction & practices starting at 13:00 sharp
 until 17:00, followed by Q&A and guest speakers from 17:00 to 18:00; Standard cadets are welcome to reconnect to attend that 
last hour. 
Note 1: Friday for both camps will include a 3 hour long AFA CyberPatriot-like mini-competition. 
Note 2: Participation in both camps will require the request
 of a waiver justifying the ability to follow the program of
 both camps in the same week. 

Check if the computer to use during the camp complies 
with the AFA CyberPatriot technical specifications: https://www.uscyberpatriot.org/competition/technical-specifications 
We are working on setting up some Virtual Machines for those few cadets whose computers do not comply, but our budget is small so we will have a limited amount of slots available. 

We are working on setting up some Cloud Computing Virtual Machines for those few cadets whose computers do not 
comply, but our budget is small so we will have limited slots. Students needing to access through Cloud Computing will temporarily be placed on a waiting list until confirmation of 
the set up of this option. More information to come. 

For waiver request, or if you encounter any problem during 
the camp [DO NOT CONTACT the AFA] please contact WAWG CyberPatriot coordinators and AFA CyberCamp directors: 

Maj. Sylvie Kacmarcik at sylvie.kacmarcik@wawg.cap.gov
