I found myself doing some research today and ran across a number of links between the CAP and Oswald, including that David H Byrd owned the school book depository.

Has anyone else read about the connections between Oswald and CAP?

This link will give you a bit of history on Byrd. He was one of "our" founders and his relationship to the School Book Depository makes the whole conspiracy thing a little more interesting.

Oh... CRAP. Was that a Black Van? Gotta Go..........

Hoorah LAWG!  We produce amazing cadets.  I wonder what my claim to fame will be.  Hopefully, it's nothing like his.

I think what your missing is the connection between Oswald and Byrd. Byrd was one of our founders. He also owned the Dallas School Book Depository. Likewise, David Ferrie, one time CAP Squadron commander, was linked to Oswald,Byrd, the CIA, and organized crime. There are even allegations that the CAP of the 1960's was a recruiting ground for the CIA. It's very difficult to find any verifiable documentation about these things. It's as if there has been some big government cover up....

The Mitchell wasn't introduced until 1964; by that time Oswald was already fertilizing a patch of ground in a Fort Worth cemetery.

This is true, but before the Mitchell there was the Certificate of Proficiency.  I don't know that he ever earned that.

Maybe the guys in that van know, I'll ask th... AAAARRRRRGGGGHHHHH!
