She led CAP’s 61,000-plus volunteers in fulfillment of the organization’s three congressionally chartered missions: Emergency Services, Cadet Programs, and Aerospace Education, as well as CAP’s increasing role in America’s homeland security. As CAP’s commander, Courter served as a Major General, the highest ranking CAP Officer, and was the first and only female to have attained that distinction in the 80 years of CAP’s history.
