Hmmm... got a somewhat ambiguous note from the CAWG CC ...

.... "It's been a pleasure working with you all" .. "Please give your next commander your full support."

With the Wing Conference coming in a couple weeks.. what timing..

..of course, are we without a commander now, or as of the conference, do we have an acting CC?

... time will tell.

Didn't the current CAWG/CC just very recently take office?

It has been about 5 months. He is a personal friend of Maj Gen Pineda and was the former director of AE for Colorado Wing.

Could this mean that we are about to hear something more about TP?

Col Muniz was relieved by Col Ernie Pearson, the Pacific Region Commander, without any explanation.  He is being replaced, on an interim basis, by Col Larry Myrick, an ex-CAWG Wing Commander and currently the Deputy Commander of the Region.  Nothing further has been said nor released and it will likely stay that way.

Speculation is simply grist for the mill.

Col Pearson doesn't need to give any kind of explanation. According to the rules, the Region Commanders are the people who hire and fire Wing Commanders, not the National Commander.

Precisely what I was hoping to find out.

Muniz had no support. The whole thing stunk anyway.

Col. Nelson was too hands off, Col. Myrick wouldn't stand for most of the shenanigans that went on after his departure. Too many good folks were dumped by Muniz or leaned on until they left. The Pineda Machine at work. No trust at all.

I wonder how many other Cronies will suffer a similar fate now.. curious.

Speculation is human nature.

None the less, I like what I see, maybe it's time to register for the Wing Conference now.

.. guess the dunk tank idea happened early.  ;)

Probably not.  What it does mean is that Colonel Ernie Pearson is not part of the Pineda Posse and he has more cojones than most of the National Board.  It is good to see command decisions being made for the good of the organization rather than on the basis of political support.

My understanding is the the CAWG/CC was releived due to his actions related to the Fosset search.

His actions at the SAR EVAL didn't help him either.

On another forum I commented that Bowling and Pineda had never been known for making their appointments with regard to ES skill or efficiency.

Vwwwwy Into-westing ...  :o  :o    ;)

ES morale in CAWG is in pretty big disarray.

OTOH, Col. Muniz, while being our Commander, was put in that place under non-standard circumstances and had a major uphill battle which he largely had little support for, it seemed.

Col. Nelson had a lack of emphasis, hands off, unless it was Cadet related, approach to everything. It showed. But TP's actions were also wrong. None of the funny business and non-team-player-approach that ES has became with Col. Nelson's arrival would have ever happened otherwise.

Col. Muniz buddied up with TP and 'earned' the CAWG position, seemingly as it's been reported, without ever holding a command position of similar nature. You know, of a unit, group, etc.

What cometh, get taketh away.

We can only hope a replacement worth of Col. Myrick type of leadership is found, to fix this once and for all. At least for 3 more years.

I will say that in the 5 months, Col. Muniz attempted to reach out to the membership, he revived the CAWG safety bulletin, sent regular emails to the general membership, replied to topics, etc. Something I can't say I've ever seen before from any unit CC past the local squadron level.

This is all third hand information....but he did not learn to play and work well with others.  I was told that The Govinator got involved.

That is why CAP officers without command experience should never be appointed as commanders.  If Col Muniz wasn't good friends with the general-who-shall-not-be-named, he probably would never have been appointed as CAWG/CC in the first place.   

It would also do CAP a lot of good to have most officers voted into their positions, rather than appointed.  That would solve a lot of problems, including the "officer appointed as a commander because he's best friends with a general" syndrome.
