On the 12th of August, Col Frederick Weiss reports on CAPTalk that the CAP Chief Financial Officer Susan K. Easter resigned, but other informants observed that she was still at CAP NHQ in Montgomery, AL. Col Weiss then provided additional information on the 15th through the CAPTalk forum, that:

“Yes, she is still there, however she put in her notice 3 weeks ago. I have not asked her when her last day will be.”

On the 16th of August on CAPTalk, Col Weiss stated:

“Just heard from our CFO, Susan Easter. She is not leaving her position ‘now’. I’m sure this is a relief for the BoG and our interim COO, John Salvador…”

  1. In case y’all missed it, the emails have gone out and the announcement is on the front page of capmembers.com that CAP needs a new replacement member-at-large for its Board of Governors.

    Politically, membership on the Civil Air Patrol BOG has become more of a stigma than a career asset.

  2. We ask that you continue to echo and report only the truth without sensationalizing. Your current coverage on Col Davidson’s exit is accurate but dry, and we understand why that need be so. From the inquiries we have made (see material provided), his actions have always been honorable and subtle signals may eventually lead to course corrections.
