"Semper Vigilans" - Always Vigilant




On April 13th, 2012 the National Board of Civil Air Patrol granted charter to the Grand Strand Composite Squadron in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. As our name indicates, we are designated as a composite squadron, meaning we have both adult (senior) members and teen (cadet) members.  The squadron draws a majority of its membership from the counties of Horry and Georgetown, a total of 2,290 square miles.

Citizens join the Grand Strand Composite Squadron because they want to be part of a volunteer organization that has a real-world mission to serve our community and fellow citizens.  We are a diverse squadron and welcome those looking to join us and help us accomplish our missions of Cadet Programs, Aerospace Education and Emergency Services.
