[Editor’s Note: As we are wading through some of the older comment contributions, this one stood out. We are currently fact-checking contributions from recently departed and well-respected Bill Breeze regarding corruption in Southeast Region.]
Remember last year’s disastrous Southeast Region Conference in which US Congressman Barry Loudermilk was given CAP’s Silver Medal of Valor for instinctively “running for cover past the first base dugout” during the 2017 Congressional Baseball Shooting? Remember the low turn-out? You’re not the only one. Civil Air Patrol’s accidents, pedophiles, pimps and politicians are gaining important notoriety for the program. Prospective celebrities appear to be distancing themselves. Nobody cool or even Air Force showed up for National Staff College.
For this year’s Southeast Region conference the Special Guests are outgoing SER CC Barry Melton and Mark E. Smith CAP’s National Commander. If you would normally view these two stiffs as mandatory attendees, then you have our permission to slap a silver star on a maroon shoulder board.

If I ran that zoo, I’d fill the empty Southeast Region guest slots with Kris Ward and William Kidney.
