Remembering Our Fallen - One Wreath at a Time

Civil Air Patrol units across the country are again working with Wreaths Across America to place wreaths on the headstones at Arlington National Cemetery and at veterans cemeteries nationwide this December 14th. Greenville Composite Squadron will be placing wreaths at Woodlawn Cemetery in Greenville, South Carolina. The squadron's goal is to place wreaths on all veterans' headstones in Greenville's Woodlawn Cemetery this year. To do do so, we need your help in the form of wreath donations.

The cost of each wreath is $15. A small portion of your donation will also help to provide continuing support for Greenville Composite Squadron. Please help us by sponsoring a single wreath, or more, for this worthwhile cause. Why not sponsor wreaths for all the members of your family who have served their country? Your support makes all the difference in making our mission a success. You can fill out and mail the form provided below:

Or visit www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/SC0063P and then click the red "SPONSOR WREATHS" button.

You can also volunteer to participate in the wreath-laying ceremony at the cemetery on Wreath Day, December 14; follow the link above to the Wreaths Across America the web site for further details.

REMEMBER
our fallen U.S. veterans.
HONOR
those who serve.
TEACH
our children the value of freedom.
 

 

 

   Welcome to the digital home of Greenville Composite Squadron, a unit of Civil Air Patrol (CAP), the official civilian auxiliary of the United States Air Force. Greenville Composite Squadron is based in Greenville, South Carolina, and primarily serves Greenville County, the Upstate and the surrounding region. Greenville Composite Squadron is a unit of Group 3, which is part of the South Carolina Wing within the Mid-Atlantic Region.

   Civil Air Patrol is a premier public-service organization that serves as a vital link in the homeland defense equation, providing search and rescue, disaster relief, and humanitarian services. It was founded on December 1, 1941, one week before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. CAP was the vision of more than 150,000 citizens who were concerned about the defense of America's coastline. Under the jurisdiction of the Army Air Forces, CAP pilots flew more than one-half million hours, were credited with sinking two enemy submarines and rescued hundreds of crash survivors during World War II.

   On July 1, 1946, President Harry Truman established the Civil Air Patrol as a federally chartered benevolent civilian corporation. On May 26, 1948, Congress passed Public Law 557, making CAP the auxiliary of the new United States Air Force (USAF) charged with three primary missions: aerospace education, cadet programs and emergency services.

   Records of Civil Air Patrol activities in Greenville extend to the early days of WWII. The squadron's current charter was issued on June 4, 1957.

   Cadet meetings take place Monday evenings from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. Senior member meetings take place on the first and third Tuesdays of the month from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. Most meetings are held at the squadron headquarters, 11 Airport Road Extension, Greenville, at the South Ramp of Greenville Downtown Airport (GMU) and adjacent to the Runway Cafe and Runway Park. Note: some meetings may take place in the hangar of Runway Cafe. See calendar or contact squadron officers below for current information.
