We received this photo-story a few weeks ago from “a concerned patron in Southeast Region” with duties in “the field of education”. The parent-teacher, we assume, is asking if we know anything about “this person Larry Julian” who s/he views as being an example of the “backward, low-class dregs” who are being elevated to positions of influence over the young in Civil Air Patrol.
To sum up the submission, the individual makes their case based on their collection of public evidence of slanted and incendiary memes and statements, racist, sexist and trashy images that have been pushed out to Julian’s audience for the purpose of convincing others to support Donald Trump as “he represents himself under Civil Air Patrol logos and in U.S. Air Force style uniforms in violation of CAP Regulations”. S/he notes that this is the same “Donald Trump who is unraveling under the pressure of the investigations into his collusion with Russia and Vladimir Putin.”
Our look-see shows that the images provided to us are genuine, not faked, and that Larry Julian is the current Southeast Region Chief of Staff under commander Barry Melton. Julian previously served as the Georgia Wing Inspector General under commander Richard Greenwood.
Over the past several months AuxBeacon has received complaints against Civil Air Patrol leaders and their support staff for slyly pushing anti-Obama and pro-Trump “humor” to the membership in electronic media and during CAP meeting and activity time. Until now, the evidence has been in forms that would expose the individual member raising the objection, if shared. Larry Julian’s broadcasts, however, are open to the public.
Investigations into both the Trump family and the Civil Air Patrol will continue. As the ugly truths emerge, all will come to see CAP’s standing mission to be one of political indoctrination under the carrot of aviation.
