The United States
Air Force Auxiliary, the Civil Air Patrol, was founded in 1941 to
protect homeland security, our oldest on-going mission.
As the U.S. Air Force Auxiliary, Civil Air Patrol volunteers
also conduct air and ground search missions for the U.S. Air Force,
promote aerospace education, and operate an outstanding youth
organization, the CAP Cadet Program.
Members of South Dakota Wing across the
state volunteer countless hours in regular weekly meetings,
state-wide training exercises, and other special activities serving
their communities and state.
We invite you to learn more about South Dakota Wing, the Civil Air Patrol, and about our vital role as The Auxiliary of the United States Air Force.
