This local news story, which ran in 2007, is still very relevant today.  In addition to the traditional Search and Rescue (SAR) mission, it covers a CAP homeland security mission that is unique to the Washington D.C. area.  The reporter refers to “500 volunteers,” at one point in the piece.  This was the approximate number of members in the National Capital Wing at that time.  As of July 2013, there are over 60,000 cadets and senior members in CAP nationwide.
