About US


The 155th Composite Squadron (155th CS) is one of the oldest established squadrons within the Nebraska wing and is considered a legacy squadron. In addition, the 155th CS is noted throughout the Nebraska Wing as one of the most progressive, cadet-oriented and active units. There is an equal emphasis placed on Aerospace Education, Cadet Programs, Character Development, Emergency Services, and special activities.

The 155th Composite Squadron can be found at a variety of public venues throughout the year promoting service to our community and the surrounding area.


The 155th CS members look forward to the ongoing challenge in training opportunities with some of the most experienced instructors in the region in their respective specialties. You will acquire knowledge and skills not many people ever get the chance to learn, placing you into a select group of volunteers. Each person is encouraged to explore their individual interests.

Whether your interests lie in searching for downed aircraft, mentoring some of American’s finest young people, or becoming excited about the aerospace world in which we live, the 155th CS is the place for you.

Our long-standing philosophy is that members should strive to be active in all phases of the CAP program, yet family activities and school commitments should remain as priorities.


We are proud to have a melting pot of individuals from various walks of life who are working together to achieve common objectives. There is a commitment by each person to contribute what they can to make this squadron a model of pride and poise. Members strive to progress professionally in their CAP career as well as in their personal life.

The 155th CS has an established family-friendly program, with many parent/child combinations, all functioning in a productive blend of cadet and senior member enthusiasm and devotion to the missions of Civil Air Patrol. Teamwork, the Core Values of Civil Air Patrol and fun all go hand-in-hand as members of the 155th Composite Squadron come together as a unit!


The Civil Air Patrol and 155th Composite Squadron endeavor to provide an atmosphere where our youth and adults are challenged to learn, grow and function as a team. We consider it an honor and a privilege to call the Lincoln Air National Guard Base our home, where we can provide a secure, drug-free environment for tomorrow’s leaders to develop the skills needed to succeed. Our squadron headquarters and classroom facility is located in the Composite Support Building at the ANG. Occasionally, training opportunities take place at other locations throughout the state and may require a Saturday commitment   

We want you for CAP!

The 155th CS is the custodial unit of a 12-passenger van which is used as a search-and-rescue vehicle and provides transportation for members to training activities.
