WORTHINGTON - Second Lieutenant Randy Reum officially accepted command of the Worthington-based Civil Air Patrol (CAP) unit during the squadron’s 75th anniversary banquet Tuesday evening at the Elks Lodge, Worthington.

Dignitaries Lt. Col. Don Sorenson, CAP, Vice Commander of Minnesota Wing based in South St. Paul, and Maj. Harry Coleman, CAP, representing Group IV Command, attended the ceremony.
As commander of Worthington Composite Squadron, Reum is director of a staff consisting of 11 senior officers and is primary administrator overseeing all squadron affairs of both its adult and youth programs.
The Civil Air Patrol is the official auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force. Its primary missions are emergency services, aerospace education and Cadet Programs. Civil Air Patrol ground and air crews conduct approximately 90 percent of all inland search and rescue missions as tasked by the U.S. Air Force. Civil Air Patrol’s Cadet Programs, for youths ages 12 to 21, provides education and training opportunities ranging from local squadron, group and wing activities to worldwide events such as the International Air Cadet Exchange (IACE).
