The Civil Air Patrol (CAP) is a taxpayer supported 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation that attempts to serve as a “benevolent” civilian auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force. Under a command structure of volunteers of limited qualifications and self-serving integrity, CAP attempts to perform three key missions: emergency services, to include search and rescue and disaster relief operations; aerospace education for the general public; and pre-military cadet training programs for teenage youth. This worthy objective is a failure in implementation with widespread problems of systemic corruption and safety concerns.
This information is methodically suppressed from candidate members and cadet parents.
AuxBeacon News is unaffiliated with the Civil Air Patrol and the U.S. Air Force. Its contributors are those who have suffered increased risk in the air, property damage, physical or verbal intimidation, sexual assault and whistle blower reprisal by either or both of those organizations. Current contributors seek open accountability and corrections. We are not former disgruntled members, but a large active group of good standing members and retired members taking a stand against the corruption in the CAP.
AuxBeacon is not a satire, parody, lampoon, fake news or humor website. We aggregate the truth because we want the corruption, abuse of authority, misconduct, child molestation, embezzlement to stop. We want reform from top to bottom, transparency, accountability, integrity in our leaders, fairness in all dealings and for members to have a voice without reprisal.
You may submit any truthful claims and supporting evidence that you have on corrupt or abusive practices and personalities within these two organizations. You should advise if your claims and evidence may or may not be published or if you merely require anonymity.
In the past, Civil Air Patrol has provided evidence of its corrupt command practices through releases of its own Membership Action Review Panel Reports. Required by its constitution and regulations, these reports have detailed harassment, retaliation and the reversal of member terminations that improperly served to discredit those reporting fraud, theft, waste, cadet molestation and other abuses.
AuxBeacon will not publish aggressive statements without corroborating evidence. Defamation is the communication of a false statement that harms the reputation of an individual person or group. It has been a tool of current and past commanders in the program. AuxBeacon will not engage in this behavior and will revise or remove stories if based on fabricated or false corroboration. If your contributions are provably true, and you have authorized their publication you may expect to see them in the near future after they have been evaluated by our growing network of fact checkers.
