Search Mission Symbol A18, that's how we list our Homeland Security missions, we do them all the time. Easily found via the advanced search that lets you search out of wing.

It's also required that all staff members have a rating in, or are on track to obtain a rating within 6 months, for the position they are staffing. Otherwise it's an Area of Concern on the commander's worksheet, aka the E1 tab, on the SUI. I've had to ding squadrons on that a couple of times.

Verify that the staffing has a rating or is enrolled to obtain a rating within 6 months of assignment if no then it should be an AOC in the E-1 Commander tab.

Using Auxiliary Forces to Accomplish Strategic Objectives

Recommendations and Conclusion
The effectiveness of the CAP to contribute to the accomplishment of national security strategic objectives as the USAF Auxiliary is cause to explore what other ways that volunteer auxiliary organizations can secure national interests. The major recommendation is that those activities that can be accomplished by auxiliary forces should be. Even a 1-percent cost savings at the national level may be incentive enough for governments to apply legality, credentialing, oversight, leadership, and funding for volunteer organizations charged with accomplishing federally-assigned
missions. Federal departments should take the initiative to explore and align with national volunteer organizations to optimize the utilization of auxiliary members in order to free federal resources and funding.

Basically, the article seems to be a decent summary of fairly well-known CAP capabilities but doesn't really suggest that we do anything new and more directly recommends that other federal agencies develop their own volunteer organizations to support their strategic missions.  Odd that he didn't mention that the Coast Guard also does this, and perhaps more effectively than does the Air Force.

Many encampments do not allow students to wear or have a watch so you may want to double-check before bringing one.

Not to sidetrack the thread, but cadets are always allowed to keep and wear watches at encampment if they choose.  Since there is no legitimate training value to confiscating watches, it is improper for cadre to do so.  See CAPP 60-70 (Cadet Encampment Guide), para 2-7(d).

1. Yes, there are wings performing HLS missions.
2. Depending on your permissions and quals, you can search WMIRS for HLS or any other type of mission, by mission type, e.g. HLS, or by mission symbol.

edit Expanding on my comments, there are 10 fields which are searchable, not just mission types, some with sub-fields.

Many encampments do not allow students to wear or have a watch so you may want to double-check before bringing one.  And like everyone here as already said, just stick to the list.  I have seen more than my fair share of cadets showing up for a week of encampment packed like they were going on a 12-month expedition.

Yes there are Wings that do HLS mission.  I don't think there is a way to see that in WMIRS.

Do any wings still participate in homeland security missions? If so is there away with WMIRS to see what wings do and don't?

Don't bring anything that's not on the packing list, unless you get it approved in advance. It will most likely be taken away as contraband. Also, you may or may not be allowed to keep your watch depending on your encampment rules.

I'll second this. This isn't your encampment staff's first rodeo - trust the packing list. If there's an item that's obviously missing, you should contact your chain of command and make certain. Also, most encampments that I have attended don't allow students to wear watches, but this varies by wing.
