Capt Demetrius Wren dug up these old Department of Defense movies from the 1970's. They are quite informative and entertaining. Have a look at what CAP was doing 40 years ago!
ALWAYS VIGILANT - CIVIL AIR PATROL VOLUNTEERS
Department of Defense 1977
DEFINES THE THREE MISSIONS OF THE CIVIL AIR PATROL: SEARCH AND RESCUE, CADET PROGRAM, AND AEROSPACE EDUCATION. POINTS UP THE CAP AS A CIVILIAN VOLUNTEER NON-PROFIT CORPORATION, PERFORMING HUMANITARIAN SERVICES
CIVIL AIR PATROL - SAR MISSION COORDINATOR
Department of Defense 1972
PROVIDES TRAINING IN SEARCH AND RESCUE TECHNIQUES TO MEMBERS OF CIVIL AIR PATROL. EXPLAINS DUTIES OF THE SAR MISSION COORDINATOR AND THE NEED FOR EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION BETWEEN THE COORDINATOR, HIS STAFF, AND OTHER ORGANIZATIONS CONTRIBUTING TO THE RESCUE MISSION.
Nice. It's funny how the same CAP concepts remain, but, man, those uniforms and haircuts!ReplyDelete
I'm reminded of the training films I saw in Army basic training in 1994...they all dated from the 60s and 70s.
