On 19 April 2014, the National Capital Wing hosted the 2nd Annual Civil Air Patrol Memorial Ceremony at the Air Force Memorial in Arlington, Virginia. CAP members, guests, and members of the public joined to honor our departed colleagues. A roll call of 150 members were read, with the audience responding “Absent, sir!” as each name was announced.
Colonel Bruce Heinlein, National Capital Wing commander and host, introduced the guest speaker, Brig Gen Richard Anderson, former CAP National Commander and current member of the CAP Board of Governors. Other guests included Col John Knowles, Maryland Wing Commander, and Col Jane Davies, Middle East Region Chief of Staff. Capt Aaron Newman of the Arlington Composite Squadron served as the master of ceremonies.
