Civil Air Patrol is the best program in the United States today for young men and woman. Whoever said it was a political disaster does not know what the hell they are talking about. They are only getting one side of the whole show. This program is great. We do Search and Rescue, Aerospace Education, and promote manners and a good path to life. If you get far enough in the program you can earn advance rank in the US military.
Civil Air Patrol search and rescue teams found me and i am alive because of those outstanding individuals.
