Civil Air Patrol Volunteer Now

    Special Oct.-Dec. 'Volunteer' marks CAP's 75th anniversary

    October 24, 2016

    The magazine's cover features Cadet Maj. Megan Laubhan, a member of the Kansas Wing's Smokey Hill Composite Squadron, dressed in a World War II-era CAP uniform at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh in Wisconsin.

    The digital version of the special 84-page October-December 2016 issue of Civil Air Patrol Volunteer, commemorating the organization’s 75th anniversary, is now available online.
