Quote from: MisterCD on August 15, 2012, 04:04:28 PMPresumably you all do know what the wing and squadron level historians are doing, yes? I see some recognition of what people are doing in NER and MER, but what about NCR, GLR, PCR, RMR, SER, or SWR? Last time I checked, they are also contributing and working, but tend not to have the national historical group give them any recognition.
Quote from: MisterCD on August 15, 2012, 04:04:28 PMPerhaps recognizing and acknowledging the national effort overall instead of just harping upon yourself would provide a more comprehensive answer in response to inquiries here on CAPTalk asking about what the CAP historical program is doing.
Quote from: caphistorian on August 15, 2012, 03:11:17 PMThe Historical Pamphlet that is referred to has been updated and was released about 6 weeks ago.
QuoteThere are interactions between the various Historical folks more than you see on paper.
Quote from: AdAstra on August 15, 2012, 06:04:37 PMJim:Both BillB and RiverAux's questions dealt with the unit historian and unit histories, and you did not address that. CAPP 5 (22 years old!) deals with the annual wing history. The new CAPR 210-1 also only addresses national, region and wing histories. To echo BillB, there is no guidance for unit-level historians.It is indeed daunting for an unit-level historian (and even wing historian!), and I admit to slamming the book several times and giving up before I ever put pen to paper. In fact, an annual unit history is not required. According to CAPR 210-1, para 6b: [Wings should] Encourage the preparation of periodic histories at the group and squadron level.

I've found quite a few (history of IACE, drill comp, emblems, etc.), but they are undated and un-numbered, so I have no idea how may there are.There are more suggestions, but I offer that there a number of us willing to assist on one or more of these projects.
