Civil Air Patrol (CAP) is the Auxiliary of the United States Air Force. Founded December 1, 1941, CAP has a long and distinguished history of volunteerism.

We are an all-volunteer force comprised of people from every background and of all age groups 12 and over. Our three main missions, given to us by U.S. Congressional charter, are Emergency Services, Cadet Programs, and Aerospace Education.

We encourage you to learn more about Civil Air Patrol, our missions and how you can get involved. Please use the links above to explore the portions of this site which will give you an idea of what the Grand Forks Composite Squadron accomplishes for our community, state, and nation.

We look forward to meeting you.
