Good evening Commanders and Wing Staff,
Thank you to those of you who were able to be a part of tonight’s commander’s call. We thank you for those who have adhered to the guidelines put forth in Phase 1 and 2, we believe in the plan, however at this time leadership has decided we need to take a step back temporarily. We will keep you informed of changes and progression of the remobilization.
Please be advised that per the MOWG Commander, Col Tom Martin, effective Monday, July 27th, Missouri Wing is returning to Phase 0, Essential Missions only (see guidance here: https://www.gocivilairpatrol.com/media/cms/CAP_CC_Mission_Essential_Ops_Memo_7_6906B856BEF1E.pdf) . Leadership will monitor conditions in the state, we hope this to be temporary and advise when we are able to progress forward.
I realize this is discouraging to many of you, check on your wingman, your staff and your members and encourage each other during this time. Continue to meet virtually and the Wing will additionally be offering opportunities for senior members and cadets to train and engage with others throughout the wing. The last several months have taught us a lot on how we can continue on – let’s continue to learn and grow and excel despite these circumstances. Additionally please check the wing calendar, squadrons will be posting links to their virtual meetings if you do not have a meeting to attend.
If you have any ideas you want to share that your squadron does, or training you would like to share wing wide please reach out to me and I will help facilitate information sharing in the Wing.
Thank you for your continued service to the program – stay positive and we will persevere!
Major Jen Smith, CAP
Missouri Wing Chief of Staff for Missions
