Osage City resident awarded for Civil Air Patrol pandemic support

SALINA, Kan. – In January 2022, Osage City resident Brig. Gen. Regena Aye, of the Civil Air Patrol, received the State Emergency Duty Service Ribbon from the Kansas National Guard, for support of Kansas’ response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Aye was one of 75 Civil Air Patrol volunteers who supported the pandemic response by transporting personal protection equipment, medical supplies, and ventilators across the state. They contributed more than 2,200 volunteer hours in the effort.

Civil Air Patrol is the auxiliary of the United States Air Force. In addition to search and rescue of missing aircraft, and disaster relief, CAP provides transportation services to the American Red Cross and state agencies as needed. Founded in 1941 to support the Army Air Corps, it has grown to more than 60,000 unpaid volunteers.
