 Squadron Commander's Welcome

Squadron Commander Lt. Col. Liz SydowWelcome to the home of the Fredericksburg Composite Squadron, Virginia Wing of the Civil Air Patrol.  We thank you for visiting and hope that you find our website informative.   Should you be interested in the Civil Air Patrol, please visit the National Civil Air Patrol website for more information regarding membership in our organization.


Our Squadron takes great pride in the three CAP missions we serve; Emergency Services, Cadet Programs and Aerospace Education.  Our Cadet Program is one of the largest in the Virginia Wing and received the Quality Cadet Unit Award for 2012. 

We invite you to visit during our squadron meetings to see what we do firsthand.  Our squadron meets every Thursday evening at 6:30PM at the Fredericksburg National Guard Armory.  Our Senior Member Staff Meetings are on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month during these same hours.  Drive up the hill in the Armory parking lot and look for the loading dock on the building to your left. You should be able to enter that door during our Squadron meetings.  

We are happy to answer any questions you may have concerning membership in the Civil Air Patrol.  Please use the contact us tab for any questions you may have.  We hope you will consider membership in the Civil Air Patrol.

Civil Air Patrol, the official auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force, is a nonprofit organization with more than 61,000 members nationwide, operating a fleet of 550 aircraft. CAP, in its Air Force auxiliary role, performs 90 percent of continental U.S. inland search and rescue missions as tasked by the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center and was credited by the AFRCC with saving 54 lives in fiscal year 2011. Its volunteers also perform homeland security, disaster relief and drug interdiction missions at the request of federal, state and local agencies. The members play a leading role in aerospace education and serve as mentors to nearly 27,000 young people currently participating in the CAP cadet program. CAP received the World Peace Prize in 2011 and has been performing missions for America for 70 years. CAP also participates in Wreaths Across America, an initiative to remember, honor and teach about the sacrifices of U.S. military veterans. Visit www.gocivilairpatrol.com or www.capvolunteernow.com for more information.

Membership in our organization consists of cadets ranging from 12 to 21 years of age - though most become senior members after age 18 - and senior members 18 years of age and up. These two groups each have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of pursuits; the Cadet program contributes to the development of the former group with a structured syllabus and an organization based upon United States Air Force ranks and pay grades, while the older members serve as instructors, supervisors, and operators. All members wear either Air Force-style or CAP-disctinctive uniforms while performing our duties.
