Units - The People

Patrick units image

Walter Lippmann, in “The Public Philosophy” defined “We the People” as follows: "… the stream of individuals, the connected generations of changing persons, that Burke was talking about when he invoked the partnership 'not only between those who are living' but also with 'those who are dead, and those who are to be born.' The People are a corporation, an entity, that is to say, which lives on while individuals come into it and go out of it. …That is why young men die in battle for their country’s sake and why old men plant trees they will never sit under."

Volunteers needed

Project Emeritus, a volunteer organization at Patrick SFB, is a program to solicit volunteers from the retired, active duty, dependents and civil service, to assist base personnel in mission support operations. Project Emeritus volunteers have been assigned to work at numerous base locations, including base personnel, the Wellness Center, the Visitor's Center and the Golf Course. Volunteers are used at Patrick SFB, Cape Canaveral and the Warbird Museum in Titusville. Volunteers give a minimum of four hours a week to support Team Patrick. Volunteers set their own schedules and select work in their area of interest or expertise. Many agencies on base are in need of assistance. 

Retired military (all services), active duty, dependents and civil service who are interested in volunteering four hours per week supporting the Air Force and the 45th Space Wing's mission can contact a volunteer coordinator at 321-494-7656, email, stop by 514 Falcon Rd, Building 415, Patrick SFB, Fla., 32925 or log on to Facebook.
