Hi my name is Chris, I joined CAP in 1996, Eagle Composite Squadron NM-012 or back then 30012, I was a C/1LT- membership lapsed in 2002 college became too much. I then joined IL-008 in 2006, but there was some funny business going on there, so I only attended a few times, even called the Wg commander about it, but I think nothing ever came of it. I am currently a UH-60 Blackhawk crewman, in the Army, and in my last month of a yearlong deployment in Northern Iraq. I will return home in July, and re-join one of the Sq's around Fairbanks, AK

Hello Everyone,

     My name is Kaye and I am a new senior member as of 5/26/09. I have already completed Level I and am now stodying for my Yeager.
      I have just retired for a second time (the first was from the USAF) from being a college professor. I am looking forward to many years of service with this fine organization.
      Would anyone care to pass on some advice to this FNG (Friendly New Gal) :angel:

Hi Kaye, welcome to the Civil Air Patrol, and to CAP Talk. Sounds like you're already off to a great start with completing level 1 and studying for your Yeager. If you haven't already, get enrolled into a specialty track, and start working towards your Tech Rating there so you can complete Level 2. You'll also want to take on Squadron Leadership School (SLS) and ECI-13 as well, both are also required for Level 2. Ask a lot of questions (or use the search functions, most of us have asked a lot of the same questions before) and don't be afraid to jump into the fray! Most of all, have fun with it, CAP is a great organization, and we're lucky to have someone with as diverse a background as yours.

Welcome again!
Brandon Kea, Capt, CAP

Hello BrandonKea and Lunford,

      Thank you for your warm words of welcome. So far I am really enjoying my CAP experience. I am in a terrific and very active squadron (Jacksonville Composite Squadron, Jacksonville, Florida) with some very friendly and helpful members. Everyone has been so nice and friendly to me. I really look forward to the weekly meeting and learning from them. I am amazed at all of the things there is to learn in this organization.
       I just finsied my on-line test for my Yeager last nite and passed that. Now I am looking at the General Emergency Services information. I chose as my first speciality the Professional Development Speciality since I am an educator.
My ultimate goal is to become an observer.
       When I first joined CAP I thought the "C" meant "Challenge" Air Patrol because there are so many things to challenge the mind and body in the organization. I really feel challenged to become a part of and to contribute to the organization.
        Thanks again for your warm welcome.

Making oneself known in one place is a good way to avoid work (specifically HOMEwork) in another.   ;)

Hi Sherry.

Was thinking, I'm a member of another forum that's AF related and they make all new members introduce themselves with a few specific questions like, how long have you been in CAP; rank, specialty, etc.

Wouldn't be a bad idea here.  This way we know where people are coming from.

Meh, it'll never happen.  Back to painting...

I like that idea. I'm a member of a MC site and they require the same thing- there is a standardized format which allows new site members to copy/paste and add their info. I think it can be helpful to know a bit about the member. It would be nice if this idea caught on here as well.

My name is Richard "Dick" Foxx; call sign 'Blackhawk'.  I've been lurking around here for 2 months waiting to become 'official'  I am what you could call a 'Military junkie'.  I started off right out of high school into the Army in 1965.  I left the Army in June of 1971 and in August of 1971 I joined the Air Force where I was lucky enough to gain flight status on HH-43's as the aircrew medic.  I left the Air Force in January of 1976 due to a family emergency.  Then in 1977 I joined the Army Reserve.  Unfortunately I was forced to leave after only one yaer when my employement became incompatable with my Reserve duties.  I tried again in 1980 with the Army National Guard, but again employement problems (new job, same problem) forced me out after two years.  The highest rank held up to this point was SSG (E6).  In 1983 I was introduced the local State Guard by a patient of mine who turned out to be a 2-star and the CO of the State Guard.  I was commissioned as 1st Lt and assigned to an MP battalion.  I served as the HHC Commanding Officer for 2 years and then as the battalion S-3 (Operations) for several years.  I ended my service as a Major when I moved out of state.  I have now settled in Delaware with a new job at the VA Medical Center.  I recently completed Level 1.  My tentative assignment will be as Health Service Officer but I have also started Scanner training and will be attending SLS in 2 weeks.  Sorry I got so long winded. ::)
