Commander's Message

“Volunteers Serving America’s Communities, Saving Lives, and Shaping Futures” is the Civil Air Patrol Mission/Vision Statement.  Civil Air Patrol is an organization comprised of volunteers from all walks of life who dedicate themselves to serving others. Since Civil Air Patrol’s formation during the earliest days of World War II, this vigilant organization has evolved into a premier disaster preparedness, prevention, and relief organization that continues to exceed expectations in all our missions. 

This website provides detailed insight into the California Wing Civil Air Patrol and is a tribute to our members' dedication, innovation, and accomplishments. 

For our members, you will find vital resources that will help support your ongoing efforts.  For those new to CAP, this website provides vital resources to begin your journey as a member of this great organization.

This website is a valuable portal into California Wing and everything our members have accomplished.  I invite you to explore this great resource, program, and all the opportunities available as a member.  Most of all, I invite you to get to know your neighbors, the heroes “next door” that make up this great organization.

Best regards,

Col. Ross E. Veta, CAP
Commander, California Wing
