Obituary

Henry Mead Herrick (1941 – 2017)

A message from the Wing Commander Col Kevin Harbison

March 28, 2017 – Lt Col Mead Herrick passed away tonight at 5:30 after a year long battle with cancer. He was surrounded by his family. Mead had been with the Civil Air Patrol since he joined as a cadet in May of 1956. Through those years he had seen many changes to our organization. Through it all he had given selflessly to his wing and the State of New Hampshire. He had been a continual and important fixture in New Hampshire emergency services. He was a person of great integrity who could always be relied on to get things done well. Most importantly, he was a great friend and comrade to those of us who had the honor work beside and to have known him. He will be greatly missed.

Civil Air Patrol Week – Signed Proclamation

Governor Margaret Wood Hassan has proclaimed December 1 to 7, 2016 as Civil Air Patrol Week in the State of New Hampshire as noted on the attached signed proclamation.

History of the Civil Air Patrol:

The Civil Air Patrol is a nationwide volunteer force of citizens providing service to the nation in the areas of search and rescue, disaster documentation and youth training. The Civil Air Patrol was established on December 1, 1941, to supplement US military during World War II. In 1948 CAP was designated as the US Air Force’s official auxiliary with three missions-emergency services, cadet programs and aerospace education.
Since CAP’s beginning, the organization has set itself apart during the country’s most tumultuous times: Locating and sinking enemy submarines during World War II, assisting agencies immediately following the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, heavily supporting hurricane relief efforts through the years as well as aiding communities during other natural disasters such as floods, wildfires, ice storms, and tornadoes.

CAP further provides vital security missions that help ensure the protection of the nation’s capital and the nation as a whole by assisting Air Force pilots with target-intercept training as well as the military with acquiring distant targets. The members of the New Hampshire Civil Air Patrol have provided continuous exemplary service to the citizens of New Hampshire from the earliest days of WW II to present.
