Civil Air Patrol (CAP) was founded in December 1941 shortly before the bombing of Pearl Harbor, and was made an auxiliary of the United States Air Force by act of Congress in 1947. Since that time, CAP has been tasked with three missions: Emergency Services, Cadet Programs, and Aerospace Education.
