CAP-USAF Commander Forced Out
Col George H. Ross III removed as CAP-USAF commander, replaced by Paul Gloyd

By Paul Gloyd | CAP-USAF Headquarters

In an email message sent yesterday by Col Paul D. Gloyd, II, USAF, to members of the Civil Air Patrol (CAP)’s National Board, a copy of which was obtained exclusively by NOTF and later AuxBeacon, Col Gloyd wrote:

“It is with regret that I inform you that Col George H. Ross III is no longer with the CAP-USAF team. I will fulfill the duties of interim CAP-USAF commander until such time as another commander is appointed. Please rest assured that CAP-USAF will continue to provide you our unwavering support.”

No reason was given for the departure of the CAP-USAF commander.

Col George H. Ross III will later retire from the US Air Force in September 2012.

  1. I want to know the name of the dirty CAP member who leaked Colonel Gloyd’s email to the CAP National Board. Well?

  2. Col. Mark A. “Woot” Wootan is now officially the 31st commander of Civil Air Patrol-U.S. Air Force (CAP-USAF).

    In a ceremony in the main hangar at Maxwell AFB, Wootan assumed command from Col. Michael D. Tyynismaa, who has led CAP-USAF since August 2014 and is retiring from active duty.

    As bad as Col. T was, Wootan is a downgrade.
