Happy Belated 79th Birthday Civil Air Patrol – December 1, 2020

I was checking my list of birthdays and noticed I missed the Civil Air Patrol (CAP) 79th birthday yesterday. In checking, I found this article – https://www.gocivilairpatrol.com/about/history-of-civil-air-patrol. Here’s the About page: https://www.gocivilairpatrol.com/about/who-we-are. While earlier versions were started, the official founding date is December 1, 1941. Here’s an early 75th birthday on YouTube: CAP Celebrates 75 Years (Civil Air Patrol National Headquarters YouTube Channel): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E3Q1aK_xuSM (about 2:25 minutes long).

Here’s the Wikipedia article – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Civil_Air_Patrol. By my math, it’s 79 years old (2020 – 1941) and will be 80 next year. Seems Wikipedia disagrees with my math. Here’s the Wikipedia link to its missions: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Civil_Air_Patrol#Missions.
