Lest We Forget

In Remembrance – 10/22 to 10/23 – CAWG

In 2023, the California Wing of the Civil Air Patrol sadly bid farewell to some dedicated members who have since taken their final flight into the great beyond. These extraordinary individuals, who served tirelessly and selflessly in the cause of community service and aviation excellence, will forever be remembered for their unwavering commitment and invaluable contributions. As we honor their memory, let us be reminded that they have embarked on a new journey into bluer skies and tailwinds, where their legacy continues to inspire us to reach for greater heights in the name of service, unity, and the enduring spirit of the Civil Air Patrol.
