Saying "Fighter Pilot mafia" also points out there was more than one elite attitude, though...

Now I hide behind and below the desk as I will receive...

There is.

Sage is never going to happen.

Care for a little side bet on that?

At one time....the Commander of CAP was and AD USAF general. 

Wasn't there a time when the wing commanders we're also staffed by CAP-USAF personnel, usually reservists?

Hi Zippity, that got me to laughing.  Yes I have been in CAP for a year but am an old Air Force veteran from the Vietnam era.  I guess which Camo pattern is going to be authorized for CAP wear is important to some folks but I just found it simpler and more economical to narrow the choices of uniforms to the basics.  Maybe my age has something to do with as I will be 70 in December and I don't sweat this kind of stuff.  I thought the 1505 and 1549 uniforms back in the day were fine and comfortable but eventually the Air Force phased them out for something new and better.

What is this common-sense posting you're bringing in here? You must be new. :D

I guess I just keep it simple.  Wear the Dark Navy BDU's and go on.  I could care less about which Camo pattern they choose.

Fox News is reporting that the teens have been charged with something, but police are not releasing details.

Probably something like failure to report a death.  I doubt it had anything to do with failure to try to get him help.

EDIT: Yup.  Failure to report a death.  Funny how "police are not releasing details" but the news is stating what they were being charged with.  http://abcnews.go.com/US/police-recommend-misdemeanor-charges-teens-recorded-mans-drowning/story?id=48769120

Not unusual at all. It doesn't appear to. be a police decision, but a prosecutor decision. Up to the prosecutor to release the details.

Anything but preliminary charges (if you arrest someone on scene) are the prosecutor's discretion.  The details insofar as charges, perhaps with names redacted due to it involving minors, are public record. The prosecutor cannot refuse (aside from a very narrow set of circumstances that relate to national security) to release a list of the charges.

My point was that it's off that the chief of police in one article gave the information but another outlet is saying they refused to comment.

And FWIW, I have seen someone put what was essentially a mirror shine on tac boots.

It was impressive on a number of levels, not all of them positive.

If they are shine-able, shine them, if they are tactical mat finish, keep them clean.

I use regular polish for 5-10 minutes for the shiney jump boots once a year, Windex on the Corfams,
and Dr. Bailey's on the tac boots.  If I've spent more then a couple hours total in 18 years making boots look
nice I would be surprised. If you're using a lighter, alcohol, side dressing, or any of the other cadet time wasters
you need to find a better way to burn your day, like checking the height of the grass hourly.

I get the social / team building aspect of the nightly boot epoxy, so whatever, but beyond that, it's not necessary.

Sage is never going to happen.

Next old problem solved via search, Google, or asking your CC first.

I'll just add here, that if your commander issues a directive (provided that it is legal, ethical, and safe), you should probably follow it.

Saying "XoCAPDuDeXo on the internet said I don't have to," is not going to win you any points with your higher-ups.

That is true but in this case it would be an unlawful order since a commander can't go against regulations.

Wait, what?
How would shining you boots violate regulations?

The "Wear Instructions" state:
 "Footwear. Black combat boot"

That's all.
Polishing your boots is basic maintenance. It keeps the leather serviceable, and aids in keeping water out.
It's certainly doesn't violate the stringent and detailed regulatory requirements of being both "black" and a "combat boot".
