Majors Wilma Gerena and Dave Zimmerman

155th Composite Squadron Commander Maj. Wilma Gerena and Civil Air Patrol pilot Maj. Dave Zimmerman from the Siouxland Composite Squadron at National Flight Academy.

The 155th Composite Squadron, Civil Air Patrol, the U.S. Air Force Auxiliary, is conducting a membership drive for both cadet and adult members. To learn more about this award-winning squadron, plan to attend an Open House on Monday, April 29, at the Lancaster Extension Education Center, 444 Cherrycreek Road in Lincoln from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Civil Air Patrol, the official U.S. Air Force Auxiliary, is a civilian, volunteer, nonprofit service organization. Its volunteer members perform more than 90% of inland search-and-rescue missions as tasked by the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center. Volunteers also take a leading role in aerospace education and conduct one of America’s finest youth programs, the Civil Air Patrol Cadet Program.

Civil Air Patrol conducts a wide variety of emergency service missions, including search and rescue, disaster relief, and carries on a comprehensive program of aerospace education and youth character development and leadership training.

Membership is open to youth ages 12-18 for the cadet program. Adults 18 and older are encouraged to join the senior program. You don’t have to have prior military experience or be a pilot to volunteer. You just need the desire to serve our community and nation.

For more information on the 155th Composite Squadron (for both cadet and adult members), plan to visit the Open House with your family and friends. Visit online at http://155thcomposite.nebraskacivilairpatrol.org/.
