Here's a search from two years ago in which a sUAS with an infrared camera found a missing horse.

Before contacting the base, I would reach out to the local CAP squadron for guidance and assistance.  That is what family is for!

BTDT didn't get an answer (but it was a few years ago). I figure they probably get hit up a lot.

Yea, I definitely would not want to camp out there in the winter.  Contact the 88th Force Support Squadron.  We have had luck in getting either a gym or other building under their control for weekend activities at other bases.

We've successfully used Wright State University twice now. They are also the host for NCC. I don't know what availability they will have in the winter, as they basically rent the dorms over the summer. I will PM you contact info.

One option is the Boy Scout camp on WPAFB.  It is free but is primitive.  Only porta johns but the campground is just down the road and it has showers and real bathrooms for use.  The campground itself is another option but it is not free.  More info on the scout camp and also getting authorization to eat in the chow hall can be found at https://www.88thfss.com/pdf/camprequestform2014.pdf

Here's a pretty good example of how a drone is a better SAR tool than an aircraft.

https://www.hubcitytimes.com/2017/11/14/drone-public-safety-dog-search-rescue/

"Today it was somebody’s dog. Tomorrow it could be somebody’s child or somebody’s grandparent,” Bodendorfer said.

“The reality is that this is a very hard operation when you think about the size of the dog  (or a person)  and the area we were covering. … Even though the drone was a tool that helped us cover so much ground, it wasn’t the right tool for the job,” he added.

Bodendorfer said with infrared technology — a thermal camera — the search for Jax could have continued into the night and would have led to a quicker rescue.

The generic answer will be "yes", however good luck. 

Last time I spoke with the LR-ADO, he said they had been slammed for ages and even
military personnel were having trouble getting rooms on orders.

It's all Space-A, so it might be "A" today and not when you show up.

Military members are billeted off base about half the time. And you can forget about about billeting on-base on a weekend when the 445th is having their UTA.

Has anyone found a cheap alternative? It’s 5 hours from here so a down and back in one day won’t work.

Once a cadet becomes an active duty military member they are no longer allowed to be a cadet. 

A slight qualification.  The regulation uses the term "extended active duty" and makes it clear that cadets undergoing basic training for the Guard or Reserve remain eligible for cadet membership.  Even though the military itself would consider them on a form of active duty, usually "ADT" or Active Duty for Training.  The point is that there are several different flavors of "active duty," not all of which are disqualifying. 

Cadets serving in the Guard and Reserve are normally a "win-win-win" for the cadet, CAP, and Uncle Sam, all of whom benefit from the synergy of the training.

Thank you sir, I am aware of that distinction.  That is why I said "becomes an active duty member."  I probably should have made the distinction more clear in my initial post.  We did have a Reservist a few years ago and it was certainly a win-win-win.

If their unit gets activated to support current operations, they must transfer to Senior Membership.

No, it would be if they get activated. The unit might get activated, but, there are usually some unit members who get excluded for a number of reasons.
