A Colorado-based Air Force NCO lost rank after he was reportedly identified as a “white nationalist,” but has yet to see a forcible separation from the military’s youngest branch.
Technical Sergeant Cory Reeves, who was previously a Master Sergeant, was tied to Identity Evropa, an organization founded by a US Marine veteran in 2016.
Reeves was working under the 50th Space Wing and Schriever Air Force Base when he was outed earlier this year by a Colorado-based faction of Antifa known as the Colorado Springs Anti-Fascists.
According to the Air Force Times, Reeves had reportedly distributed white supremacist propaganda.
The USAF prohibits membership in racial supremacy groups of any sort, and have been known to crack down on Airmen who partake in such extracurriculars.
“Racism, bigotry, hatred and discrimination have no place in the Air Force,” USAF spokeswoman Ann Stefanek said in a statement. “We are committed to maintaining a culture where all airmen feel welcome and can thrive.”
While Reeves was busted to Tech Sergeant on September 11, it is unknown why he is allowed to remain in the Air Force.
