6/3/2011 - Kirtland Air Force Base -- Patrol Wing recently received an "Excellent" rating for its performance on its Air Force mandated Operations Evaluation held April 29-May 1 at Kirtland AFB and throughout New Mexico.
The evaluation tested the New Mexico CAP's ability to perform Air Force assigned missions, such as homeland security, disaster relief, search and rescue and counter drug operations.
In 2009, the Wing also received an "Excellent" rating when the evaluation's mission base was in Farmington, N.M.
The Air Force Evaluation Team cited two outstanding performers.
They were CAP Lt. Col. Mark Smith (retired colonel), the mission safety officer and CAP Capt. William Fitzpatrick (Staff Sgt., NM Air National Guard), flightline supervisor.
