The Inner Workings Of Civil Air Patrol

7th Grader Justice Warren Shares The Inner Workings of Civil Air Patrol

7th Grader, Justice Warren, made his way into The Civil Air Patrol of The United States Air Force. The United States Air Force Civil Air Patrol program is a branch of the military open to youth 12 years of age or older.

Warren says the difference between J-ROTC and Civil Air Patrol is that “J-ROTC is a downgrade of Civil Air Patrol…Air Force J-ROTC is an Air Force program exclusive to high school students, while Civil Air Patrol is the official Air Force program for United States citizens 12 years and older.

Now, how would a 7th Grade Student like Warren get into the Civil Air Patrol? Requirements are to be 12 years of age or older, pay $24, and attend all Tuesday meetings after all previous steps are complete.

Some may wonder what the Civil Air Patrol does. It might seem that they only fly planes, hence the name, but they actually save people’s lives. The Civil Air Patrol division searches for missing people, through a program called “Search and Rescue.”

Saving people’s lives and flying planes is just another Tuesday for Warren, and if a 7th Grader can do all of this, imagine what Warren could do in a few years, and if you joined, imagine what you could do, too.
