On this anniversary of the heinous attacks on our Nation and her Citizens on September 11th 2001, we pause to mourn the fallen, support the survivors and families, show our gratitude to all that served our Nation in taking the fight to the enemy and we reaffirm our commitment to serve our Communities, States and Nation.
Civil Air Patrol answered the call on September 11th:
CAP aircraft flew 48 sorties in the first 72 hours alone following the attacks. Over 8,700 members were mobilized nationwide helping staff Federal Emergency Management Agency regional operations centers and state emergency operations centers, as well as supporting the lead federal agency in response and recovery.
