Civil Air Patrol Re-Elects Chitwood National Vice Commander

Had Previously Served As National Chief Of Staff

Brig. Gen. Reggie Chitwood of Van Buren, Arkansas, was re-elected national vice commander of Civil Air Patrol September 3rd by the CAP National Board, the nonprofit organization's governing body.

Chitwood's re-election to a second one-year term as national vice commander occurred on the first day of business at the 2009 Civil Air Patrol National Board and Annual Conference, held last week at the Marriott Rivercenter in San Antonio. He defeated Col. Russell Chazell, CAP's national chief of staff; Col. Michael Murrell, former Ohio Wing commander and national adviser for aerospace education; and Col. George Boyd, former Kansas Wing commander.
 
"I sincerely appreciate this opportunity to serve Civil Air Patrol," said Chitwood. "I look forward to a second year as your national vice commander."
 
Chitwood's primary duty as vice commander is to help CAP National Commander Maj. Gen. Amy S. Courter lead CAP's 57,000 volunteers in fulfillment of the organization's three congressionally chartered missions: emergency services, cadet programs and aerospace education, as well as CAP's increasing role in America's homeland security. Courter is currently entering her second year of a three-year term as national commander.
 
Courter and Chitwood are members of both the National Board and Board of Governors - CAP's governing and advisory bodies.

CAP Vice Commander Chitwood

Before his election as national vice commander in 2008, Chitwood served as the national chief of staff, responsible for directing and overseeing the organization's national staff and advisers.He previously was commander of CAP's Southwest Region and Arkansas Wing. As wing commander, he was instrumental in getting state legislation passed to allow CAP members up to 15 days off from their employment to assist in training or actual missions. In addition, he has served as a mission pilot, mission observer, incident commander and FAA aviation safety counselor.
 
A member since 1991, Chitwood's background also includes service on the CAP National Finance, Constitution and By-Laws and Posse Comitatus committees.
