|CAPER Company C-16|
|Pershing Angels Company C-16|
CAPER Company C-16 was at Florida A & M University in Tallahassee, Florida. They were chartered in May 1968. This is first confirmed date of a CAPER Charter. The founder of CAPER Company C-16 was Wadee'ah Muhammad (AKA Beverly Chappell at that time). She is working on a list of the charter members of the company from 1967-68. I'm excited to see the names again....yes, again. I can remember when their charter came into National Headquarters! Wadee'ah told me that she got the CAPER Company going because she wanted to take ROTC classes. She was finally able to get the ROTC Department at Florida A & M University let her into ROTC, making her the first female to take ROTC there, long before it was permitted.
CAPERS were really pioneers.
In 1990, the former CAPER Company C-16 joined with other former CAPER Companies to form the National Society of Pershing Angels....and they are still in existence today.
As far as I know, this is the only continuously operating CAPER/Pershing Angels Company.
Patricia also sent in some pictures for the CAPER Company C-16 page:

Patricia, of course, became a Pershing Angels. But it is obvious she always remembered in her heart that she was a CAPER....as do all CAPER Alumni.
Thank you Patricia for your contributions.
