Major assets of CAP; Aircraft and Vehicles are considered to be property of the USAF even though titled to CAP, Inc.  In time of war, the government could "press into service" private property and individuals according to the "will of congress" in the declaration act. (we will assume that congress actually declared war).  Most likely it will not matter, as this type of war will only last a few hours and nothing will be left to take... >:D

Shutdown basically means no grant allocations from congress to CAP for O&M of NHQ, repairs of aircraft/vehicles, mission reimbursements, and everything else we expect.  Everything you pay for stays going...
So unless you were expecting to fly an "A" mission, or have a SAREVAL in  your wing, nothing changes.  Little things like getting stuff done at NHQ may take awhile since no paychecks mean no employees.... it just depends on what our COO asks of them, and if the BoG allows NHQ to "borrow" from Corporate savings\investments to pay the bills in the short term.

As long as we're getting crazy, all that would have to happen would be to have the state draft CAP members into the state militia and then they could do anything with us that they want.  However, the sticking point may be actual ownership of CAP equipment and aircraft since that belongs with a corporation and not the state.  I'd think they could draft us but not our equipment.  Unless there is some clause hidden somewhere in various contracts that lets the AF take back any equipment they paid for.

Haven't heard a thing from CAP.  You would think that AFAMs would get cancelled.

The CG Aux is completely shut down except for stuff done from your own home -- apparently on the theory that even though there are many activities conducted that have no cost to the Coast Guard they are worried that if someone is hurt or causes someone to get hurt that the Coast Guard might then have to pay for that.

Yep.  This thread is a dead end. The reality is that we have to go down the call list to get someone to take a mission now.  If a war starts inside our borders, few if any would answer the phone, if CAP was to call ... which they would not. LOL

The USAF pays for all those airplanes and would absolutely use them, one way or another, in the event of a major conflict.
That doesn't mean CAP will be dropping bombs off the coast...
Plenty of DSCA and HD tasks would need to be performed, that are non-kinetic, that do not demand Title-X authority.

Is there any portion of CAP affected by this?

For even more enjoyment, the man in the photo is Jeff Wong, past HI Wing Commander

I hear he might have a job offer on a reality show film crew.  http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-42743829   One fiasco begets another.
