First of all - expect to have a remarkable, rewarding, and exciting time. There is great satisfaction in working with other people (both cadets and officers) to accomplish an invaluable mission. Being on an active base is a different experience for most of us. Working as a 'Mentor' may be a new experience as well. The link on the menu "Staff Descriptions" has more information on several of the roles officers will perform during BE17.
While it is better for the encampment if a staff member can be there the entire time, we recognize that it is not always possible. When applying, indicate the dates that you could be available. That will help us in making effective use of your time. We also understand that in April you may not know whether you will be able to come in August. If you would like to come, and think there is a reasonable chance that your schedule will allow it, apply. Let us know on the application that there is some uncertainty. But, if you get your application in, you will receive updates and other information. If you can come, you are prepared. If you cannot come, just let us know as soon as possible.
We have fostered many new relationships with our active duty counterparts on Joint Base McGuire–Dix-Lakehurst (JB MDL). With the operation tempo being what is on JB MDL, we recognize that our corporate vehicle fleet must be present to support our transportation needs. If you feel comfortable driving a CAP van, we need as many registered drivers as possible. In order to drive a CAP van you need to have a Civil Air Patrol Motor Vehicle Operator Identification Card (CAPF 75). The first step is to request a copy of your driving record from the Department of Motor Vehicles. Once you have your record we will provide you with the required training to operate a Civil Air Patrol van.
***Be advised that the online option could take weeks; we suggest going to your local DMV for a same-day copy***
***We will need a readable copy of your current driver's license (front and back), 5-year driving abstract, and a completed NJWF 75***
