Thank you for your interest in the Gallatin Composite Squadron (RMR-MT-037), Civil Air Patrol. We are a unit of both cadet and senior members working together to perform all three CAP missions. 

We meet every Monday at 1830 (6:30pm) until 2100 (9:00pm). Our unit meets at the Belgrade National Guard Armory. New members are invited to start attending meetings on the first Monday of each month. The unit is very active on the weekends so be prepared to get out in uniform for events ranging from volunteer service, and emergency service training, to cadet program activities.

To begin the membership process the prospective cadet and her/his parents must first attend three weekly meetings. Once completed we will initiate the paperwork at the unit level. 

For more information about membership, please click the "request more information" above. We will reach out directly with the information requested. Also visit the cadet program and senior program links on the left for information about the program.
