Wreaths Across America 2018
Civil Air Patrol Members To Honor Fallen Service Members at Wreaths Across America Remembrance Ceremony

McChord Field -- Members of Civil Air Patrol’s Washington 
Wing invite the public to sponsor remembrance wreaths for placement on the graves of veterans at Tahoma National Cemetery (Kent, Wash.) on December 15, to honor those who served the U.S. as well as current military members. 
Sponsors can even designate where the wreaths will be laid in the local community. The wing’s efforts coincide with Wreaths Across America tributes occurring simultaneously across the nation, including Arlington National Cemetery, where the initiative began 23 years ago with
the placement of 5,000 wreaths donated by Morrell Worcester,
owner of Harrington, Maine’s Worcester Wreath Co. In 2006, Worcester and his family formed Wreaths Across America, a nonprofit initiative that recognizes the courage and sacrifices of
U.S. veterans by placing wreaths on the graves of the fallen during the year-end holiday season.

As a major partner in Wreaths Across America, CAP has adorned memorials and veterans’ graves with evergreen wreaths to make sure the sacrifices of the nation’s soldiers are not forgotten.
Donate Wreaths Across America ceremonies are conducted largely by CAP wings and squadrons with the help of veterans’
organizations; private citizens; the Maine State Society of Washington, D.C., which annually assists with the laying of wreaths at Arlington; and the Patriot Guard Riders.

Civil Air Patrol, the longtime all-volunteer U.S. Air Force auxiliary, is the newest member of the Air Force’s Total Force. 
In this role, CAP operates a fleet of 560 aircraft, performs about 90 percent of continental U.S. inland search and rescue missions as tasked by the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center and is credited by the AFRCC with saving an average of 80 lives annually. CAP’s 60,000 members also perform homeland security, disaster relief and drug interdiction missions at the request of federal, state and local agencies. In addition, CAP plays a leading role in aerospace/STEM education, and its members serve as mentors to over 25,000 young people participating in CAP’s Cadet Programs. 
Visit: www.GoCivilAirPatrol.com or www.CAP.news for more information.

Locally, Washington volunteers operate a fleet of 23 vehicles and 14 aircraft (Cessna 172s, 182s, and a 206, as well as 2 
Blanik gliders) for inland search and rescue missions and 
cadet orientation flight instruction. The wing is comprised of 
766 adult members (ages 18+) and 706 cadets (ages 12-21), organized into 27 squadrons, who contributed a value of 
$5.4 million in volunteer hours to their local communities and the citizens of Washington in 2017.

   August 25  P-51 Hangar Briefing, Noon   

This is the fourth themed member fly day of our summer series. At noon, we will welcome back to the podium for a hangar briefing, Mike Lombardi, Chief Historian and Archivist of the Boeing Company. Mike has a special fondness for the P-51 and it shows. A BBQ lunch will be available courtesy of the Everett Sea Cadets. As the main runway at Paine Field will be closed, we will run-up the engine of P-51B “Impatient Virgin” but will not fly her until after the runway reopens. Member flights will be offered Wednesday afternoon and evening, August 22nd. 

To participate in any or all of these activities, please call Visitor Services at 425.348.3200 or email visitorservices@historicflight.org

As Cadets of Washington Wing; Did you know that you are eligible for a scholarship through the Cadet Character and Leadership Foundation (CCLF)?
 CCLF offers scholarships to hardworking and dedicated CAP cadets who would like financial help to attend leadership focused CAP activities. 

 If you are attending a leadership  related National Cadet  Special Activity or encampment this summer (or any leadership activity at any time of the year for that   matter), the CCLF may grant you a scholarship for a   percentage of the activity cost.  
The application process is extremely simple, and more often 
than not, the CCLF will graciously provide a scholarship. Personally, I have applied for a scholarship through CCLF 
more than once, and was blessed with a scholarship each time.

  If you are interested in applying for a scholarship to help fund
 a leadership focused cadet activity that you are attending this summer, check out the Cadet Character and Leadership Foundation website. If you have any questions about CCLF scholarships, please feel free to contact me.   110% in All We Do!
