We are glad you’ve chosen to take a look at what our unit is about! Here you will have access to a lot of information about what our organization is and does for the United States, the United States Air Force, and the Department of Homeland Security, just to name a few.
Civil Air Patrol offers many benefits for adults, and young adults alike, such as flying, participating on air and ground search and rescue teams, and helping build the leaders of tomorrow on both ends of the spectrum.
You will also find that we have a pretty cool history, not just as a unit, but Civil Air Patrol as an organization; for example most people have no idea that we are actually older than the United States Air Force. Our unit’s motto is “Three Missions, One Team,” and we function just as that. We focus on Civil Air Patrol’s three missions which are Aerospace education, Emergency Services, and Cadet Programs. We are a strong team that works with the mentality “there is always a way!” If you have that mentality and that drive to get the job done, push yourself, and educate yourself while helping advance the youth of America, we want you to come join our Team. On behalf of the Rochester-Oakland Cadet Squadron I welcome you to our website. We hope to see you soon.
Lt. Colonel David Watts, Civil Air Patrol
