DETROIT 100TH COMPOSITE SQUADRON
For 80 years, thousands of parents have credited the Civil Air Patrol with communicating to their children the importance of personal integrity, volunteer service, a commitment to excellence, self-discipline and respect for others in their developing personal and professional lives.
The Detroit 100th Composite Squadron believes that continuing to provide this opportunity, particularly for our urban youth, is an important service to Detroit and its surrounding communities. The Detroit 100th, once operational several years ago, has been reactivated, once again, to develop our Detroit youth into tomorrow’s leaders.
NAMED AFTER THE 100TH ADVANCED FIGHTER TRAINING SQUADRON
Adopted as an Associate Auxiliary Squadron by the 100th Advanced Fighter Training Squadron at Randolph AFB, Texas, the Detroit 100th Composite Squadron was permitted to use their shoulder patch and chartered March 2001. The Patch originally represented the Tuskegee Airmen’s 100th Fighter Squadron, known as the Red Tails, during WWII.
