Civil Air Patrol, the official
auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force, is a nonprofit organization
with more than 56,000 members nationwide, operating a fleet
of 550 aircraft. CAP, in its Air Force auxiliary role, performs
90 percent of continental U.S. inland search and rescue missions
as tasked by the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center and
was credited by the AFRCC with saving 54 lives in fiscal year
2011. Its volunteers also perform homeland security, disaster
relief and drug interdiction missions at the request of federal,
state and local agencies. The members play a leading role
in aerospace education and serve as mentors to nearly 27,000
young people currently participating in the CAP cadet program.
CAP received the World Peace Prize in 2011 and has been performing
missions for America for 70 years. CAP also participates in
Wreaths Across America, an initiative to remember, honor and
teach about the sacrifices of U.S. military veterans.
