On Thursday evening June 30th 2018, Civil Air Patrol dipped deep into its ancient reserve when former Board of Governors member, CAP Col Warren Vest, accepted command of Montana Wing at the URMR Dining-In at the US Air Force Academy. CAP Lt Col Robert J. Schneller served as the interim Montana Wing Commander.

The former commander of Civil Air Patrol’s Montana Wing was CAP Col Mitch Edwards who took the reigns just last year in April of 2017. Prior to that, CAP Col Nolan Teel served as the Montana Wing commander from December 4th 2013.

Civil Air Patrol members have been pointing out that CAP Col Warren Vest does not live in the state of Montana and that CAP Col Tom Kettel is unfit for command of Rocky Mountain Region. Vest lives in the state of Maryland and has a second home in Idaho. Members also observe the tactic of power-lingering through the game of musical chairs.

  1. Your story on Civil Air Patrol Musical Wing Commanders could be extended to Alaska and Nevada Wing and I am sure a few others. This fall, Alaska Wing Civil Air Patrol lost approximately $150,000 in state appropriations.

    “The Alaska Wing Civil Air Patrol in 2017 received $453,500 in total from the State of Alaska, which was used to support all 14 of the squadrons. This year, the funding was cut to $302,300 overall for the state, with a special note in the state budget that the patrol should actively search for non-state funding to support its operations.”

    I am sending you a longer report on this through your contact form complete with links to evidence.

  2. And you wanted BOG member Dale Newell to get a briefing on this? J/K Newell’s done some sleazy things in CAP, so tell ya what imma do. Here is a better picture of Vest [link redacted] and here is a link [redacted] to the names of all the squadron commanders in OKWG for the past 12 years. You’re Welcome.
