Gubala graduates from CAP Staff college

PAWTUCKET – Lt. Col. Robert M. Gubala, vice commander of Rhode Island Wing, Civil Air Patrol, graduated from CAP’s prestigious National Staff College on July 18.

National Staff College is taught by senior CAP leaders and USAF instructors from Air University, and the curriculum challenges students in the areas of executive leadership, management, organizational behavior, and policy formulation.

Graduation from National Staff College is a key requirement for the Gill Robb Wilson Award, CAP’s highest professional development achievement for adult volunteers.

Gubala, of Pawtucket, was one of 112 senior CAP officers from around the country who made up the National Staff College 2020 graduating class.

Civil Air Patrol is the longtime auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force and as such is a valued member of its Total Force.

In its auxiliary role, CAP operates a fleet of 560 single-engine aircraft and 1,550 small Unmanned Aircraft Systems. It performs about 90 percent of continental U.S. inland search and rescue missions as tasked by the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center and is credited by the AFRCC with saving an average of 82 lives annually.
