We also get either a red, black, or white belt and a red, green, yellow, gray, or black scarf. No fancy berets now.

They trained once a month in rock and cliff, survival, search and rescue techniques and first aid. Graduates were entitled to wear a Ranger patch and wear a red beret. The program was approved under the tutelage of then Oregon Wing Commander, Hall of Honor inductee Colonel Obed "Pancho" Donaldson.

Newman (in front with white ascot), Director of Ground Training, Oregon Wing: When the above honor guard received the CAP National Commander, Major General "Boom Boom" Putnam in Portland, he loved the Ranger look.
