Tuscon, Ariz--This past weekend, April 13 and 14, Tucson had the privilege to see the Air Force Thunderbirds perform and display with pride and precision their one hour team of “America’s Ambassadors in Blue.” Many of the Civil Air Patrol members participated in this event.  CAP Cadets were assigned to sell programs at several public entry points. Similarly, in previous years they rented chairs. The safety team led by Lt. Col John Kruger, jointly with the Arizona Highway Patrol, division of the Department of Public Safety, showed a video on driving distractions especially with large tractor vehicles. There were many handouts for the public on the CAPs role and mission. Helping Col Kruger with the exhibit were Lt. Col. Lee Hutchins, Maj Barbara Harper from the CAP, and Sgt. Philip Johnson, Officer Paul Drake, Officer Brian Shields of the Arizona Highway Patrol.
