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

Aerospace Education

CAP's aerospace education efforts focus on two different audiences: volunteer CAP members and the general public. The programs ensure that all CAP members (seniors and cadets) have an appreciation for and knowledge of aerospace issues.

Los Angeles Cadet Squadron 138

Civil Air Patrol members helped support the day-long City of STEM event held Saturday, 28 April at the Columbia Memorial Space Center in Downey. Participating were members from Fullerton Composite Squadron 56, Saddleback Composite Squadron 68, Los Angeles Cadet Squadron 138 and Los Angeles County Group 1.

In the CAP STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) display, Major Cathy Collom (Group 1 Aerospace Education Officer) and cadets from Squadron 138 ably demonstrated the many STEM kits available from CAP National Headquarters.

An aircraft fuselage mounted on a trailer, from Squadron 56, attracted a lot of attention. And made a great photo op for a lot of families! Including our cadets.

Also attracting attention was the noisy wind tunnel, demonstrated by 2d Lt Donald Domonoske of Squadron 68.

Thanks to all those who helped promote STEM and tell people about Civil Air Patrol.

Promotions are a big part of a CAP. It gives cadets something to work for and feels great when they get to wear the grade and show off all of their hard work. Congratulation to sergeant Boone on his promotion.

Los Angeles Cadet Squadron 138

Thanks to all the officers, cadets and family members from Los Angeles Cadet Squadron 138 who participated in the four events over the long Memorial Day weekend: place American flags on veterans' graves and Live Oak Memorial Park in Monrovia; participate in the Memorial Day Tribute at Live Oak Memorial Park; participate in the Gill Robb Wilson Memorial Ceremony at Forest Lawn Covina Hills; and finally, help pick up and store the small American flags for next year's tribute.

#Sq138CAP #Sqdn138 #BellCA #MontebelloCA #MaywoodCA #WhittierCA #DowneyCA #MontereyParkCAEvery Memorial Day since 1974, members of California Wing - Civil Air Patrol have gathered at the grave of Gill Robb Wilson, founder of CAP, at Forest Lawn Covina Hills. Master of Ceremonies for this year's tribute was Lt Col Charles Wiest, California Wing Historian.

Colonel Wiest reminded the assembly that two generations of CAP members have gathered here on Memorial Day to honor our heritage, forming a long blue line that stretches back to the founding of CAP, where Gill Wilson stood near the head of the line, down to the newest officer and cadet.

Presenting the memorial wreath was Col Jon Stokes, Pacific Region Commander, assisted by C/1Lt Ethan Stahl. A color guard from Brackett Composite Squadron 64 presented the colors. CH (Lt Col) Micheal MacKinney offered the Invocation and Benediction.

Participating were officers and cadets from Los Angeles County Group 1, El Monte Composite Squadron 21, Clover Field Composite Squadron 51, Brackett Composite Squadron 64 and Los Angeles Cadet Squadron 138.

Los Angeles Cadet Squadron 138

This morning, 75 members from three Civil Air Patrol squadrons and three Boy Scout units turned out at Live Oak Memorial Park in Monrovia to help prepare for the 2018 Memorial Day Tribute on Monday. In two hours, they placed over 3,000 small American flags on veterans' headstones, covering the small cemetery in a waving field of red, white and blue.

Participating were El Monte Composite Squadron 21, Brackett Composite Squadron 64 and Los Angeles Cadet Squadron 138, and Boy Scout Pack 188, Troop 185, and Troop 107 from Duarte.

For over 80 years, the annual tribute has been sponsored by the Allied Veterans Council of the Upper San Gabriel Valley, an umbrella group of 20 local veterans organizations.

Thanks for honoring our fallen comrades on Memorial Day.

Thanks to the members of Los Angeles Cadet Squadron 138 who marched in the Monterey Park Play Days Parade on Saturday, 12 May. A bit of light rain, a bit of breeze, not a very large crowd along the route, but we made a good impression in a short community parade that we'd not marched in before.

All along the parade route, it seemed like hundreds of cell phone cameras were pointed in our direction!
