QuoteCivil Air Patrol History Preserved For Tomorrow ...............By YOU Today --------------------------------------------------------------------------------"CAPARCHIVES" is the eBay identification name for the Civil Air Patrol National Curator, a special assistant to Maj. Gen. Anthony J. Pineda, C.A.P. National Commander, charged with the research, acquisition, preservation and display of items related to Civil Air Patrol's history. All Civil Air Patrol items purchased by "CAPARCHIVES" are purchased for the National Civil Air Patrol Historical Archives, paid for from Civil Air Patrol funds, and become the property of Civil Air Patrol National Headquarters. Unfortunately, with the movement of its headquarters from site to site following the end of World War II, much of CAP's early history was either lost or disposed of. A major effort is now being undertaken to recover that history and make it available to the membership and the general public. At the same time an active search is underway to select a site for a National Civil Air Patrol Museum. When the CAP historical program realizes its goal of a National museum, the archives will be available to all for research and display. Be aware that there is a web page calling itself the National Civil Air Patrol Museum. This is the Civil Air Patrol Historical Foundation, a seperate entity which, while supporting CAP history, is NOT a part of Civil Air Patrol. Only items purchased for or donated to the Civil Air Patrol archives actually become CAP property destined for the actual National CAP Museum. Until that time, a portion of the archives is made available for display annually at Civil Air Patrol National Boards, Region and Wing conferences and C.A.P. special activities. Portions of the historic collection have been seen all over the nation and will be on display at the August 2007 C.A.P. National Board in Atlanta, Georgia. The cooperation of the CAP membership and the general public is requested. The archives presently contain thousands of insignia items and more than 80 historic uniforms, including those of past national commanders, as well as all types of Civil Air Patrol memorabilia. There are over 1,000 unit and special activity patches in the archives. If you are a C.A.P. member, please insure that your unit is represented in the headquarter's collection by donating your patch today. If you were an early member of CAP please donate now or make provisions in your will for your CAP items and early photographs to go to Civil Air Patrol. Your name will be added to the growing list of donors that accompanies the display. The following items are sought for the national C.A.P. archives either by donation, purchase or trade: "OTC" shoulder patch (a WW II patch with an "OTC" tab at the bottom.) Mechanic, WW II, gold embroidered on a black square. Photographer, WW II, gold on black square (with a base on the camara). "USA-IACE," white embroidered on a black rectangular patch. Southwest Region patch with red dot in Oklahoma. Unit or special activity patches, caps, T-shirts, coffee mugs and coins. Obsolete flags and guidons. Arm bands. Early photographs, posters, orders and regulations. Expired state C.A.P. license tags. (Civil Air Patrol is a non-profit organization. Donations are deeply appreciated and are tax deductible.)
