Quote from: CAPSGT on July 05, 2011, 03:53:48 PMunits can actually request a specific charter number as long as it is not taken. There are a few units in MD that have done this in the past 10 years. Most times there is some sort of historical tie to the number.
Quote from: Therapst on July 07, 2011, 08:11:28 PMIn the 1960's and at least up through mid-1970, charter numbers began with the wing 2-digit prefix, and the region was not part of the number. So, for example. units in PAWG all began with "37" plus three additional numbers. For example, one squadron with which I was affiliated for years had charter number 37125.I don't know when the numbering system changed to include the region identifier, wing alpha code, and so on.

Leonard Blascovich, CAP National Historian.I think this will bring some facts to the speculations.

Quote from: DakRadz on July 16, 2011, 02:07:40 AMGAWG also allows specific number requests. Toccoa's squadron is 506, as in 506th PIR of the 101st.The area has great programs, events, and ties to its time as the home of Easy Company, and many of the events now include CAP participants or volunteers.3 miles up, 3 miles down!
