TRAVIS AIR FORCE BASE — Maj. Christopher Ross assumed command of the Civil Air Patrol’s 22nd Squadron on Monday night, succeeding Capt. Rhonda Anderson, who commanded the squadron for four years.
Ross has been a part of the Civil Air Patrol since 2003 when he joined the Jon E. Kramer Composite Squadron 10.
The Civil Air Patrol is a civilian auxiliary of the Air Force that assists the Air Force and local public safety agencies with air and ground searches and rescue efforts. Squadron 22′s association with Travis goes all the way back to 1952 when the base was known as the Fairfield-Suisun Air Force Base.
