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, the colonel 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 retired from the USAF in September 2012.

  1. 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.
