You could say Civil Air Patrol is America's best kept secret

By  | 

Civil Air Patrol also known as CAP, has a Wyoming sector. CAP is an U.S. Air Force auxiliary and a nonprofit organization with more than 56,000 members.

CAP is tasked by the Air Force to perform 90% of U.S. inland search and rescue missions. Adult volunteers also perform homeland security, disaster relief and counter-drug missions at the request of government agencies. Members play a leading role in aerospace education and serve as mentors to nearly 24,000 young people in CAP's cadet program.

Wyoming Civil Air Patrol meets every Monday from 6:00 to 8:30 at 5500 Bishop Blvd.
