Remembering Our Fallen - One Wreath at a Time

Civil Air Patrol units across the country are working with Wreaths Across America to place wreaths on the headstones at Arlington National Cemetery and at veterans cemeteries nationwide on December 17th. Greenville Composite Squadron will be placing wreaths at the M.J. "Dolly" Cooper Veterans Cemetery in Anderson, South Carolina. The Greenville squadron's goal is to place wreaths on all veterans' headstones in the M.J. "Dolly" Cooper Veterans Cemetery this year. To do do so, we need your help in the form of many donations. Please help us by sponsoring a single wreath, or more, for this worthwhile cause. The cost of each wreath is $15. Your support makes all the difference in making our mission a success. A small portion of your donation will also help to provide continuing support for Greenville Composite Squadron. Why not sponsor wreaths for the members of your family who have served their country? To help us place wreaths on our fallen heroes' graves this December, go to http://wreaths.fastport.com/donatelocation.html?page=22293. Then click the big red DONATE button for the M.J. "Dolly" Cooper Veterans Cemetery.

   Welcome to the web site of Greenville Composite Squadron, a unit of Civil Air Patrol (CAP), the official civilian auxiliary of the United States Air Force. Greenville Composite Squadron is based in Greenville, South Carolina, and primarily serves Greenville County, the Upstate and the surrounding region. Greenville Composite Squadron is a component of the South Carolina Wing, under the Middle East Region of Civil Air Patrol.

   Greenville Composite Squadron headquarters are adjacent to the South Ramp of the Greenville Downtown Airport (GMU), across from The Runway Cafe. Cadets and Senior Members meet weekly on Mondays from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. If you are interested in becoming a part of this all-volunteer civilian force, please feel free to visit one of our meetings. Further contact information can be found below.

   Civil Air Patrol (CAP) was founded one week before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in December, 1941. It was the vision of more than 150,000 citizens who were concerned about the defense of America's coastline. Under the jurisdiction of the Army Air Forces, CAP pilots flew more than one-half million hours, were credited with sinking two enemy submarines and rescued hundreds of crash survivors during World War II.

On July 1, 1946, President Harry Truman established CAP as a federally chartered benevolent civilian corporation. On May 26, 1948, Congress passed Public Law 557, making CAP the auxiliary of the new United States Air Force (USAF). CAP was then charged with three primary missions aerospace education, cadet programs and emergency services.
