CAP Congressional Gold Medal Bill
posted Jul 8, 2012 4:38 AM by Paul Creed III
Ohio Wing CAP Members,
..............message from our National Commander, MG Charles. L. Carr about the current status of the Congressional Gold Medal for our WWII CAP Veterans in the House of Representatives. This situation directly effects all of our WWII Veterans from Ohio.
...........among the list of Confirmed and Unconfirmed Recipients:
DALTON, JAMES R. AWAITING CONFIRMATION OHIO
A large majority of these veterans flew Coastal Anti-Submarine Patrols from the CAP Coastal Patrol Base 14 in Panama City, FL during the opening months of WWII in 1942. I have personally talked with Col. Robert Arn, CAP from Westerville, Ohio, and his recollections of the duty he and the rest of the Ohio folks at Coastal Patrol Base 14 is truly awesome and inspiring.
...................support HR 719 for the Civil Air Patrol Congressional Gold Medal for our remaining WWII CAP Veterans.
