Official Website of the Civil Air Patrol - Los Angeles Group 1

Los Angeles Group 1 is composed of ten member squadrons, all located within LA county. Each squadron has a different personality and focus. Members are all volunteers and Units are composed of Cadets, Seniors and in some cases both. Group 1 and its member squadrons all promote and further the three missions of the Civil Air Patrol (Aerospace Education, Cadet Programs, and Emergency Services). Together we are roughly 700 members strong and growing! We encourage you to give back to your community in a volunteer capacity by joining one of the ten squadrons located in Los Angeles County Group 1.

Cadet Programs

100 years ago today marked the end of World War I. One year later in 1919 Armistice Day was created to remember and honor the veterans of that bloody war. The red poppy is worn to commemorate and honor those who served.
In 1954 the name was changed to Veterans Day honoring all Veterans who have served this great nation. The symbolism of the Red Poppy continues to this day.
California Wing recognizes our Veterans from all services today who continue to serve with in our Wing, Groups and Squadrons. Thank you for your Service.
If you love freedom thank a veteran, because freedom isn’t free.

#Respect ... As a core value, it is a mandate to every member. Therefore, to the question, is it given or earned, the answer is that it is freely given by all members of the Civil Air Patrol to all people that we serve.

Who do we serve? The national commander makes that clear in his vision statement. We are to be, "One Civil Air Patrol excelling in our service to the nation and to our members."

We serve everyone in the United States and we serve our members. During emergency services operations, we do not ask the merit of the individuals who need our volunteer service. We automatically respect the rights and needs of those who are suffering and we sacrifice to provide. During recruitment we assume the dignity and worth of all who wish to join with us. We must respect who they are based on the non-discrimination policy articulated in CAP Regulation 36-1.

Respect is discussed in another way in CAP. It is also a necessary function of leadership. Here it is given based on position but also earned based on merit. However, this is not the important emphasis of the core value.

The core value has, as its roots, the critical spiritual value of "Loving your neighbor as you love yourself." There is no "earned" in this equation.
