I thought that Aux Beacon might find this latest email from Colonel Shelly Norman of interest:


As you know, NHQ recently rolled out CAPP 80-3 (attached), Character and Leadership: Applying Core Values for Senior Members.

The PCR Commander has asked each wing to come up with an implementation plan to incorporate the information and lessons in the pamphlet into our staff meetings. After discussion with Chaplain Bill Adam, we have come up with the following recommendation for both the Wing and Unit levels.

For the Wing level we are going to present a case study once a month on the first meeting of the month. This meeting will be devoted entirely to covering our monthly safety briefing and then a case study. The Wing Chaplain and I will lead the discussion and he may rotate one of his CDI’s to take the lead as well. He has been waiting for the CAPP 80-3 to come out and his goal is to have a CDI at each unit leading the Core Values for Senior’s discussions. The plan is to start this next week on 6 November.

At the Unit level I am asking unit commanders to either do the same thing as we will at Wing or on the evening when the cadets are doing their Character Development that the Senior’s do their Core Values case study.

I have asked Capt Jerwa to set up a google file where the units will upload their attendance rosters each month showing attendance and completion. We wil let you know when the file is ready, and the botton to click to submit will be on the Chaplain page on the Wing website.

The information and case studies are meant to be thought provoking and encourage discussion specific to each situation. There are 26 case studies so it will take 26 months to get through them all if you do them once per month. You can do them in any order, but I would suggest starting with the first one and go forward from there.

Col Shelly J Norman, CAP
Washington Wing Commander

The irony of someone who was suspended from command following a cover up of her own arrest, then sending out an email about core values, and talking to her members about integrity is absolutely astounding.

  1. I heard Norton was picked up by the CAP black vans while he was pimping a cadet one night. His whereabouts are currently unknown.

    I heard that Norman [redacted]…

    [Admin: You heard correct. See if you can find a link to public evidence.]

  3. Just another glorious example of how the Pacific Region works. The head of the snake (Col. Stokes) keeps recycling his cronies. Wonder where Col. Norman will land after her term is up?

  4. Toxic AF is not a reference to the Air Force. That Mark Smith appointed Jessica Jerwa as the national social media analyst really exposes him for what he is. Can you please get the photo packet up that we sent to you?

  5. Smith Stokes Norman Jerwa Kettell.

  6. CAPTAIN Jerwa. Don’t inflate the tool’s head anymore than it already is.

  7. I see bad behavior happening all over the CAP, in many Wings not just Washington. Too many of the old hard working members have quit, died, went inactive, were terminated due to politics, or just lost the drive to continue.

    So here we are, Shelly, a member in bed with the region commander who abused her authority, blatantly violated the regs with a national commander that preaches excellence at nearly every event, but does not live by it. All hypocrites!

    They are a BIG joke and EVERYONE knows it, but afraid to do anything about it. This will continue until we have a leader that will put the organization first. A thorough house cleansing is what we desperately need.

    Anyone up for the challenge?

    A complete abuse of power.
