I wrote a post a couple of years ago about the Civil Air Patrol and homeschooling.
I recently discovered your great blog about the Homeschooler (and their parents) and the Civil Air Patrol Cadet program. I grew up in the 1950s-60s as the son of a Air Force pilot. We moved around a lot and wished that I would have been homeschooled. Long story short, not only was a CAP cadet in high school, I also re-joined CAP after retiring from the Boeing Company here in Washington State.
I now serve as the Director of Aerospace Education and assist the 28 Washington Squadrons with their education program. I just wanted to let you know that the National CAP headquarters has responded to the Homeschoolers by appointing a high level staff person to coordinate with homeschooling organizations. And please let me know if I can be of assistance to other homeschooling parents understand CAP, visit a local squadron, etc. And again, thanks for your article!
Director of Aerospace Education, Washington State Wing, CA
He had sent the message to me via email and Facebook, just in case, and I responded to him on Facebook.
He replied with more information. 🙂
My initial CAP squadron after I retired in the Seattle area must of had at least 30% of its 42 cadets come from homeschooling parents! And several parents also joined! It was truly a “Win-Win” effort!
