Unfortunately, while we value History, we also purged a lot of it under Record Retention regs... Had a similar sit in my SQ, but dug in enough drawers to find a few things, and have been around long enough to know how to 'dig' elsewhere... Google, Newspaper archives, mission reports and other rosters, etc. sent to higher echelons...etc.  You may be able to get some CAPF 27 copies from NHQ, but that's about it. Big thing is start a program to document activities and people going forward while you work your way back.

And you may as well get a Duty Assignment to Historian and use the REG 210, Historian self-training docs (223, CAPP 5 & 6) to learn the craft as you go and work toward a Rating in this specialty. It's kind of like being a detective, with all the fun and frustrations of the real thing  :)!  Have fun with it, and just do your best.

While the regs require Annual Histories from WG, Unit histories are "encouraged ... periodically," so the only 'pressure' is you, and the final satisfaction of a job well done. Good Luck! b.

All: After thorough perusal of the Regs, I cannot seem to find the answer to this question. Hope y'all can help! 

SCENARIO:  A member of Wing X spends a number 5 months (summer) in Wing Y's territory. He would like to be able to participate in Wing Y activities and training...but without doing a transfer between his Wing X unit and Wing Y, back-and-forth, every 5-6 months. 

I remember on USAF active duty, we had a thing called "TDY" -- where you could be temporarily assigned to a different unit for a specified period of time. Seems this might be a handy tool for CAP, as some of us aging 'snowbirds' split our time between winter & summer places.

Other than a 2a TRANSFER, does anyone know or have experience, an answer, or a potential route up the chain of command to resolve this question??

THANKS for the favor of any reply!

You can also check if the old CAP NEWS papers have anything about it. If you provide a time frame (2-3 months) around when your unit was chartered, they may be able to find at least your first commander.

I was able to have them find my Earhart from 1982, which National accepted as proof I earned it and is on my record in Eservices.

No, there is not.

Helpdesk might be able to pull something.

Hey there,

At my squadron there isnít anyone doing historian, and I just found out my squadron was chartered in the 80s. I realized there was no seniors from back then,  and was wondering, is there a list of all former members from my squadron so I can track some down, to make the squadron history board more complete. Thank you.

The quickest one I've personnaly ever seen was 4 days. I shipped it priority from MN and 4 days later that person was a member. Depends on how busy they are at the time. YMMV.

Well, queue X-files theme music.

Literally an hour after I posted this, the second member suddenly appeared on the roster.

Was this a CAP conspiracy? Proof of extraterrestrial involvement?  Mildly amusing coincidence?
We may never know the truth.

Was there a black van parked in front of your house? >:D

I suppose I should include a disclaimer that the appearance of a miniature medal on the rack builder does not guarantee its commercial availability. Across the years, some mini medals seems to have gone in and out of production (e.g. I know a few people in possession of medals that are not currently available from Vanguard).   

In theory, all of the medals "should" exist and the rack builder provides an example of their precedence and attachments.  Note the actual medal suspension design shown for most of the medals is just a generic representation.

No worries and thanks, as always, for your brilliant product.

I was just ordering mini-medals and when I didn't see the NCSA medal available via Vanguard, I thought maybe I missed something.
