Welcome to Lebanon Composite Squadron. The following information and links will help you get the most out of your membership in this organization.
When you join the squadron, you be subscribed to the cadets mailing list using the email submitted with your application. This will be used for notification of special events and other squadron information. Parents will be subscribed to the parents mailing list. Details on accessing your email account and the mailing lists are available on our email section.
Other useful information is available on our links page.
Since communication goes both ways, as a subscriber to the mailing lists above you will not only receive messages from other members of the squadron or wing, but can send your own messages as well. When doing so, please keep your messages concise and avoid attaching large files as not everyone has a high speed connection. Please note that per CAPR 110-1, you must identify yourself with name and, as applicable, CAP rank or CAP position of employment in all email communication.
Note that for security reasons, we do not post contact information for squadron members on this web site. You can find email addresses and phone numbers for anyone in the squadron through e-Services (see the next section).
Once you receive your membership packet you’ll be able to create an eServices account. With an e-Services account you’ll be able to update your contact information and view contact information for other members of the squadron. In addition, eServices is the place you enter and view emergency services training and pilot currency information. You’ll also find a number of links to useful resources on the left hand navigation section.
To sign up for e-Services, go to the eServices site and follow the instructions above the sign in box for first time users.
As a new cadet in the Lebanon Composite Squadron you’ll be assigned to a flight where you will be introduced to the other cadet members, your flight commander and the cadet commander. They will provide you with all the information you need to be successful in Civil Air Patrol and can answer any questions you may have (or can direct you to someone who can).
You will need two styles of Air Force uniforms: blues and ABUs (Airman Battle Uniform). See the meetings page for details on which uniform to wear for each meeting. See CAPM 39-1 for information on how to wear each uniform including the placement of patches, ribbons, and grade insignia.
After you earn your first achievement, you will receive a voucher to order your blues uniform.
The squadron will issue you a set of ABUs during your basic training. This will include pants, blouse, and cap (if available). It will not include black boots or desert tan t-shirt. These are your responsibility to obtain. The squadron has a limited supply of black boots that may fit. Any desert tan shirt with round neck is acceptable.
In addition, you will need a wing patch, cloth CAP cutout, a cloth Civil Air Patrol tape, and a cloth name tape for your uniform. You will need to order the name tape from Vanguard but the other items are available at the squadron.
The first thing you’ll do as a new senior member is to complete the Level I training course. During this training you will be exposed to the history of CAP and familiarize yourself with the general policies and procedures.
Visit the Level I page on the national site to begin the training.
Senior members are not required to wear uniforms but are encouraged to do so. During your Level I training you’ll be introduced to the different uniform options and where each is typically worn. See CAPM 39-1 for complete details on the uniforms approved for wear by senior members.
