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.
