    After my 30 year USAFA reunion, I wrote an article titled, "The United States Air Force Academy Doesn’t Train Warriors Anymore."

    It seems nothing has changed in the last decade, in fact, it's gotten worse.

    I read this weekend an article in The Epoch Times about a female USAFA grad, who became Miss Colorado apparently while at the Academy, and now is being allowed to compete for Miss America as an officer.

    She was crowned Miss Colorado in May 2023 just before graduating from the United States Air Force Academy (USAFA) and commissioning as an Air Force Officer.

    The point of my article is not to besmirch the now female officer, so I won't mention her name, but to highlight the profound lack of seriousness with which the Air Force and its Academy take their mission of creating warrior leaders.

    Question: Who at USAFA thought it was a good idea to let a cadet compete in a beauty pageant? Was she given time off to compete? Were other cadets given time off to compensate for the uneven playing ground?

    Did anyone think of the negative effects this would have on the institution, our long-term national defense, or esprit de corp?

    Do you really think this is the image an academy that is tasked with creating our nation's leaders wants to project?

    What's next, the USAFA Rockettes? USAFA Tik Tok channel? A reality TV Show - The Real Female Cadets Of USAFA?

    The academies used to be tasked with instilling into cadets the perseverance and tenacity that 'no stress or strain could erase.'

    Do you think our enemies (foreign or domestic) are worried about fighter pilot beauty queens?

    Has anyone stopped to think that just maybe, our psychopathic overlords pushed this agenda on the young woman, prodding her along, helped her win the pageant, in order to create just such a situation?

    By the way, I feel the same way about college football players being allowed to shirk their duty to play ball.

    It's not the mission. Never has been, never will be.
