Col Philip G. Hirons, Jr. - Rhode Island Wing Commander
Hello and welcome to the website for the Rhode Island Wing of the Civil Air Patrol. Our organization, the official Auxiliary of the United States Air Force, proudly serves our community, state, and nation. As mandated by Congress, Civil Air Patrol serves three main missions. Those missions are Aerospace Education, Cadet Programs, and Emergency Services. Today, Civil Air Patrol is comprised of over 60,000 volunteers across the Nation! Check us out and see how you too can be a part of this great team by either serving in our Cadet Program (ages 12-21) or in our Adult Program (18+). To learn more about CAP, who we are and what we do, stop by a location nearest you and talk to some of our members, and consider joining one of America’s premier volunteer service organizations!
