Civil Air Patrol Celebrates 75 Years of Service to South Carolina

October 21, 2016 - Posted in Palmetto Scene by Tabitha Safdi

Seventy-five years ago, President Harry Truman signed into law the incorporation of Civil Air Patrol as a nonprofit organization. 

The Civil Air Patrol (CAP) is a federally supported non-profit corporation that serves as the official civilian auxiliary of the United States Air Force (USAF). CAP is a volunteer organization with an aviation-minded membership that includes people from all backgrounds, lifestyles, and occupations.

Three primary mission areas were set forth at that time: aerospace education, cadet programs, and emergency services.
