Civil Air Patrol vital piece of American airpower for 76 years
Since, Dec. 1, 1941, the Civil Air Patrol has evolved from protecting America against invading German U-boats to now being a main component of search and rescue missions, providing emergency services and guiding the next generation of young aviators. The Mississippi Wing’s Golden Triangle Composite Squadron does even more than providing SAR and emergency services; they also play a big role in supporting Columbus Air Force Base flying missions.
