When a friend invited former U.S. Navy journalist Ken Wayne to join Civil Air Patrol's Amelia Earhardt Senior Squadron 188 in Oakland, California, in the fall of 2015, Wayne was intrigued.

“I didn’t know much about CAP, but he told me I’d get to fly a 182 with a slick G1000 in it, and that was appealing,” said Wayne, a longtime reporter and anchor for KTVU-TV, the Fox affiliate in San Francisco. “I also missed the camaraderie of the military and service aspect, so it felt natural to be back in a military-style setting.
