U.S. House Approves CAP Congressional Gold Medals

May 20, 2014 by · Comments Off on U.S. House Approves CAP Congressional Gold Medals
Filed under: CAP Texas Wing 

by Capt. Morgan Montalvo, Texas Wing Public Affairs Officer

The U.S. House of Representatives late Monday passed H.R. 755, legislation awarding Congressional Gold Medals to surviving members of the Civil Air Patrol who served on the Home Front in World War Two.

Bipartisan approval of the measure punctuates years of efforts by CAP members and supporters to recognize the national public service organization’s contributions to Allied victory over the Axis Powers. During World War Two, thousands of CAP volunteers patrolled the Eastern Seaboard and Gulf of Mexico in search of German submarines, scanned the U.S.-Mexico frontier looking for infiltrators, conducted missing aircraft searches, operated aerial courier routes between defense factories and military bases, towed targets for military aviation trainees, and flew forest fire watch missions.
