Southeast Region Shield
Southeast Region Headquarters is one of eight geographically divided regions in the Civil Air Patrol. The Southeast Region reports directly to National Headquarters Civil Air Patrol as part of the command structure.  The geographic command jurisdiction encompasses the states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee as well as the territories of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.  The Southeast Region is a corporate level tier of the Civil Air Patrol and is chartered at the direction of the Civil Air Patrol.

Organization

The Southeast Region is commanded under the direction of Col Barry Melton who holds the title of Region Commander. Under the direction of the Region Commander, six Wing Commanders manage and direct their members by laying out strategic objectives to meet community needs.  The six wings are divided geographically from the states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee and the territory of Puerto Rico (which includes the U.S. Virgin Islands).  
 
Each wing is further subdivided into groups and then squadrons.  Members at the squadron level are the life blood of the organization providing the tactical roles to meet Civil Air Patrol's Congressionally mandated missions.
