CAP Members:

Attitude and entitlement problems have infested the United States Air Force, especially here at Whiteman. The political, anti-female, anti-enlightened attitudes that are being grown in our military youth programs are like a disease that is destroying us from within.

Two weeks ago I placed a comment on one of the many Civil Air Patrol suicide articles here. It was all about Paul Tibbets Jr’s grandson, Brig. Gen. Paul W. Tibbets IV. He is being forced to retire without a promotion after an investigation substantiated several incidents of misconduct during his career.

“The investigation substantiated several allegations of misconduct: Making inappropriate comments regarding women on two occasions; failure to properly report information about suicide attempts through his chain of command on four occasions; violation of policy for use of a government vehicle; and failure to report the value of autographed photographs celebrities gave him.”

Given the outcome of the investigation, then-commander of Air Force Global Strike Command Gen. Robin Rand issued Tibbets a letter of admonishment and withheld his promotion, Yepsen said.

“Brig. Gen. Tibbets will begin terminal leave Oct. 19 and retire as a brigadier general effective Dec. 1, 2018.”

I want this to sink in with your readers. Tibbets was derelict in his duties as commander of the 509th Bomb Wing at Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri when he failed to report four suicide attempts, and pressured officials not to record some suicide attempts.
