ALCON,

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank all personnel that participated in the America Shield Exercise this past week. Our members took time off from their busy schedules to attend part or all of this week long exercise. It was an overwhelming success, and our customer, the United States Army was very impressed with our performance. Thank you for your hard work and efforts.

Ohio Wing SAR/EVAL Success

posted Aug 20, 2014, 2:16 PM by David Allen

ALCON,

     I would like to take this opportunity to express my thoughts and gratefully acknowledge some of the people who have spent the last 10 or so months training and preparing for our SAR/EVAL. First, we did very well as we were de-briefed by the USAF Evaluators. Lt Col Dick Neuwirth, Lt Col Mike Bodnarik, Lt Col Tom Snell, Lt Col Jerry Pearsall, Lt Col Veronica Neuwirth, Lt Col Wayne Shanks, Major Patrick Kelly, Major Paul Siglock, Major Jim Himes, Major Bill Macek, Captain Chris Kovacs, Captain Anita Heilman, Captain John Jackson, Captain Wendell Meade,  just to name a few performed admirably. I realize that this was a team effort, and unfortunately I cannot name all of you in just one e-mail. I also want to thank the GLR personnel that were on hand, along with the INWG people and Lt Col Sheila Scerny of MIWG.  
     This e-mail alone cannot express my thanks to the Ground Teams, and our SAR dog "Sawyer" and Air Crews, along with KYWG that supported our efforts.
Mission Base Staff was exceptional. Again, this was truly a team effort.
     I would like to ask you to take a few days off to "decompress" before we start back to our continuing efforts for the future. This is just the beginning!

SAR/EVAL

posted Aug 4, 2014, 6:27 PM by Mark Woods

ALCON,

    This is just a reminder that the OHWG SAR/EVAL is only 4 days from now, beginning this Friday. If you are planning to be there Friday, you must arrive at KMGY before 1500L. The Dayton Wright Brothers airport is having a static display from 1600-2200L and the runway and several major roadways will be closed. Further, we have been training for this exercise for the better part of a year now. All personnel are in place to make this a successful event. We can do this together as a team which is what we've been working for.

Semper Vigilans,

CAP Pilots Info

posted Aug 4, 2014, 6:25 PM by Mark Woods   [ updated Aug 4, 2014, 6:26 PM ]

ALCON,

Due to the FAA exemption on transportation of Non-CAP personnel and property (i.e. ARC blood transport), I am compiling a list CAP pilots that are Commercial rated pilots that also hold an Instrument rating for possible outside agency transport missions during the EVAL.

Please submit Grade, Name and CAPID with these FAA ratings to email listed below.

When responding to the information requested as Commercial-Instrument Rated sent in my earlier email,  please provide if you have a current 2nd class medical (if not already provided).

A 2nd class is required for transport of non-CAP personnel or property.

I have attached a copy of the FAR exemption.


Please submit the requested information ASAP.

Encampment Chase Cars

posted Aug 4, 2014, 6:19 PM by Mark Woods

ALCON,

There seems to be some confusion as to the reimbursement for chase cars to drop vans off at the recent Ohio Wing Encampment. The Ohio Wing Encampment budget will pay for the use of a chase car. This was decided well in advance of the Encampment. The only requirement is that an "original" receipt and a CAPF 108 be provided. Please submit originals to the Wing Administrator so that the Encampment Budget can be closed out.
