The South Dakota Civil Air Patrol has a new wing commander. The organization is an all-volunteer branch of the Air Force.
C-A-P members are often the eyes in the sky during disaster response and search and rescue efforts.
The new C-A-P leader took office during the organization’s annual meeting.
Colonel David Small Jr. became the highest ranking Civil Air Patrol officer in the state last week. Colonel Small says the Civil Air Patrol helps agencies in a number of different situations.
