Fellow Volunteers:

Just recently, Civil Air Patrol selected our former Michigan Wing Commander Curtis J. Boehmer to replace Jayson “Colombo” Altieri on the Board of Governors. This all White Governance Party must believe that with the change of decor at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, it no longer needs to present even a token of diversity for the good of our program and nation. But there is even more and supports what you have been saying all along.

Boehmer served as our MIWG King from July 26th 2014 to September 10th 2018. While he was working the blue uniform and fruit salad to his advantage, he ran as a Republican candidate for a seat in the Michigan House representing my District 84 and he lost. He LOST BIG TIME, see the chart. What this shows is that your stories are really on to something when it comes to Civil Air Patrol dangling a reward of aviation in the faces of young people to grow and groom a cult of intolerant, ignorant regressive voters. This folly of a 180 is decimating the CAP ranks of quality teachers and professionals who would make better role models for what the future will require of officer candidates. I just saw Darin Ninness whining about CAP’s loss and retention problem. This is not a problem that can or will be fixed by the same people who created it.

According to Civil Air Patrol’s Diversity guide:

“From an Air Command and Staff College research paper, “The military forces of the United States recognized the need to address and embrace the diversity of the men and women in the Armed Forces. Over the last two decades [Varvel, 2000] the military has evolved from an organization of predominately single white males (many of whom without a high school diploma) to an ethnically and multi-culturally diverse organization of men and women. Because of this transformation, the leaders of the Armed Forces have learned to manage that diversity and take advantage of its benefits.”

“In Civil Air Patrol, diversity creates an organization enriched with people from different cultures with different experiences, lifestyles, backgrounds, perspectives, and ideas.”

“CAP is quite clear that it does not discriminate based on race. Diversity is supported in CAP.”

CAP News: Mich. Wing’s Boehmer Selected to Serve on Civil Air Patrol Board of Governors

A former cadet and lifelong member of Civil Air Patrol has been selected to serve on CAP’s Board of Governors.

Col Curtis J. Boehmer, 62, of the Michigan Wing was selected Saturday by the CAP Senior Advisory Group, replacing Col Jayson Altieri as an at-large member of the board. Boehmer’s term begins on Nov 3.

“I thank Col Altieri for his contributions and look forward to the opportunity of working with Col Boehmer in this new capacity,” said Maj Gen Mark Smith, CAP’s national commander and CEO. “I am confident that Col Boehmer will be a great addition to the Board of Governors as a CAP member at large. He brings strong credentials to the position, to include his many years as a member of CAP, a highly successful term as the Michigan Wing commander, his professional experience and his service on other boards.”…

The Board of Governors, or BoG, consists of four U.S. Air Force appointees, three members appointed jointly by the secretary of the Air Force and CAP’s national commander, and four members-at-large selected by the CAP Senior Advisory Group (CSAG). CAP’s national commander, national vice commander, executive officer and eight region commanders serve as voting members on the CSAG. The CAP inspector general, command chief, chief operating officer and CAP- U.S. Air Force (CAP-USAF) commander are non-voting members of the CSAG.

The 11-member BoG generates strategic policies, plans and programs designed to guide and support the volunteer service of the organization’s 52 wings. CAP’s national commander and chief executive officer, the organization’s chief operating officer and the CAP-USAF commander serve as advisers to the BoG.

2018 Chart from CAP National Headquarters showing the Civil Air Patrol has 89% white members.

According to Zippia, 80% of the paid employees at CAP national headquarters’s at Maxwell AFB in Alabama are white males. The CAP preaches diversity, but they don’t walk the talk.

I agree with Jacob, this former cadet 2nd Lt is not qualified to be on our Board of Governors, but the Civil Air Patrol program is in such a death spiral that they cannot attract any good talent. Anyone upwardly mobile will avoid the CAP like the Zika Virus, it has become a reputation killer.

  1. Nobody noticed this and filed a complaint?

  2. To Members unaware, CAP corporate expects all senior members to have CAP email accounts…

    Why, because it “legally” allows CAP to be “Big Brother” to watch who we correspond with, who we have conflicts with, who may be a troublemaker, who needs to go and more… I was once a monitor of this deceitful practice. You know, spying on my fellow brethren. I never liked it, but it is a necessary evil to keep the troops in line. Keep it all Official CAP Business or you may face Rafy the Reaper….

  3. I tell new private pilots who want to build time to avoid Civil Air Patrol because it is cursed with the inverted Midas or SADIM touch. Too many people are turned to [$41t] by any contact with this organization. I’ve been using your site to prove it.

  4. The Civil Air Patrol has something in COMMON with the GOP and David Duke would be proud!

    The CAP BoG is clueless, classless and shameless. If the members had a voice, none of these has-been clowns would be on the BoG today.

  6. This is all about installing CAP assets into the US House and Senate who expect to receive votes and campaign contributions from the membership in exchange for funding a private little flying club and ego boosters for former military aviators.

    I bet you [redacted] won’t do a story on this or even publish my comment about a BLACK USAFA cadet lying and doing cocaine and from Georgia too!

  8. Yeah, we see it took some time for you to present this, but we understand. For those deluded CAPsters and MilTots who attempted to shame Kathy Griffin for her expression of disgust at Alt-Right Neo-Nazis and Trump and his supporters… when these same people were cowardly silent over far more numerous and worse attacks against the Obamas…

    the following link will show you a series of images and video from different sources that record AMERICAN CITIZENS hanging the Obamas by the neck and burning their bodies in effigy. (The intent now is to expose the hypocrisy and the risk to our nation.)

    D-List Celebrity Kathy G. never really needed to apologize, because she was right all along about the danger we face from Trump and his supporters. But she was frightened by a mob reaction and I expect that the power behind what motivates many to oppose Trump will forgive that fear.

    To her credit, she is no longer apologizing. Kathy, we beg you… don’t stop thinking about what will soon be here.

  9. Unknown? That seems like some bullshit (can I say that here, edit if you must) to keep the Male numbers under 70%?

  10. Many of us here in the San Diego Unified School District hope that Martha King walks away from this.

  11. Good article. You could add this reminder from our past.

    Hahahah, you people are clueless. Seriously. Got any good ideas how to “fix” diversity?

    The FAA would like to talk to you about diversity in General Aviation, too.

    But you d-bags don’t have ideas. You just like to talk shit about people who are actually _in_ the organization and are still doing good things. Unlike you.

    You guys are really snowballing the evidence on Civil Air Patrol’s political agenda. This has been a long time coming because for decades they’ve gotten away with abuses while using bright, shiny new cadets as pawns. Despicable. To assist your effort, here’s a CAP Member in my district who just lost her election in Arizona. Seriously, Wendy Rogers describes herself and her husband as “active, alert-roster-ready officers” in the Civil Air Patrol. These photos might help you as well. I don’t know how your editors feel about Kathy Griffin, but she successfully “triggered” and “hosed” pilot Wendy Rogers into a self-humiliating tailspin. Either Rogers lost the “Right Stuff” long ago, or Kathy Griffin is 1/5 of the way to Ace.

    Incumbent Democrat Tom O’Halleran defeated Republican Wendy Rogers, winning a second term in Congress and ensuring his party holds five of the state’s nine House seats.
