For many Airmen, joining the military is a result of inspiration. They may be inspired by a family member, a close friend or perhaps just the will to be part of something greater. For others, they experience something first hand that gives them the urge to serve. One organization commonly known for providing that experience is the Civil Air Patrol.

The CAP is a group of volunteers that support the military, as well as the local community.

Founded in 1941, the CAP was started when civilians offered to help the military during the war, according to Col. Austyn Granville Jr., CAP Florida wing winter encampment commander.
