Join The Black Sheep Senior Squadron!
  

Welcome! The Black Sheep Senior Squadron, of the Colorado Wing of the Civil Air Patrol, seeks to be a highly trained, effective resource to the USAF and our community. The better we are at our mission, the more satisfied our members are in their contribution. Contribution is a keyword. We are not a club for self-enrichment. Instead, we are a volunteer service organization contributing to the needs of those around us. CAP is a highly rewarding and fun experience when we consistently develop ourselves in this serving profession.
