Other CAP Units
There are other units of Civil Air Patrol and CAP-USAF within the "boundaries" of the National Capital Wing. In order to alleviate any confusion, we list them here. Squadrons are where prospective members join CAP.
- Congressional Squadron is a direct-reporting unit to CAP's National Headquarters. It provides members of Congress and staff an opportunity to support CAP nationwide, as well as in their district/state, as Federal Legislative Members. However, Active Members are also part of the squadron and have "specific requirements" to join. The unit operates a Cessna 182 out of Joint Base Andrews in Maryland. Note: The squadron is not a traditional legilsative squadron although CAP's National Capital Wing is the only wing in CAP without an attached legislative squadron.
- Maryland & Virginia Wings operate squadrons and groups in the same local area. Prospective members should be aware that the national CAP Unit Locator may show units from multiple wings near you. Make sure to look for DC in the charter number listed and the word squadron to ensure you find one of our squadrons to join.
- The Colonel Louisa S. Morse Center for Civil Air Patrol History is a research and storage facility for the CAP National Archives and Historical Collections. It is located on Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling in Washington, D.C., and is named after CAP's first national historian. The center's mission is to archive and curate the records and artifacts of the Civil Air Patrol and facilitate the research and study of the corporation's history.
- Detachment 2, CAP-USAF Mid Atlantic Liason Region is headquartered at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland. The CAP-USAF provides day-to-day support, advice, and liaison to Civil Air Patrol and provides oversight for CAP programs, with particular emphasis on safety and programmatic requirements. CAP-USAF personnel are the primary functional interface between CAP and other federal agencies.
