Thanks for posting that link. We're excited about the marker and will have many relatives and 1-2 survivors from Base 16 at the dedication.
FYI, of the 151 CAP personnel assigned to Base 16, Manteo, 147-1/2 were from NC. The 1/2 results from a member serving two hitches at Base 16 -- on the first hitch he was an NC resident, on the 2nd Virginia. One of the other 3 was TDY from Base 6 (GA) to help get Base 16 started and then returned. The last 2 were sent down, together, from CAP National, and returned there together a few months later.
I do not have detailed personnel records from Base 21, Beaufort, but from their "yearbook" history of the 140 CAP personnel assigned, 132 were from NC.
So, for both bases, some 96% of the personnel were Tar Heels - perhaps the article isn't all that misleading.
