    MASSACHUSETTS -- They were known as the “Eyes of the Home Skies,” and during World War II, the volunteers who comprised the Civil Air Patrol served as unsung heroes. Including Everett L. King. King, of the family that founded the Taunton Municipal Airport, spotted an oil slick from a U-boat, a German submarine, while on flight patrol near Block Island. For his wartime service in the all-volunteer CAP, flying out of Base 18 in Falmouth, King was posthumously awarded a replica of the Congressional Gold Medal.
