AFISRA is called 25 AF now.

I'm not sure what you're looking for here. CAP doesn't have an intelligence mission in the traditional use of the word.

IMO there's room for one (things like radar analysis, ntap and cell team notwithstanding...)
But I think we have enough irons in the fire.  It would have to provide enough value to core missions to justify itself.

We could probably stand some, uh, professionalization in the realm of setting up our collection decks.
And we have a pretty large crowd from which to crowdsource things, that is going mostly untapped right now.

Okay, I understand how Nerf would not fit in. What I mean by treat is that they should do what they can such as control bleeding, splint bones, etc. Any other suggestions? I was thinking about using a practice becon as the supposed epirb

As Eclipse said, a nerf war might be something you plan outside of CAP, but has nothing to do with CAP and definitely wouldn't be conducted at a SAREX. Friends aren't invited to a SAREX, it's not a recruitment tool, it's a Search And Rescue Exercise to train ES personnel to do their jobs.

For the second part, CAP doesn't "treat" anyone so I'm not sure what you mean by that. We Search for missing persons, but any medical attention is provided by trained professionals, not a group of Cadets with a first aid kit who think they are medics.

Speak with your Squadron ESO about these "plans." If you don't have an ESO talk with your Squadron CC or the Group/Wing ESO for guidance.

Encampment completion is shown in the "Encampments" area mid-way down on the "Training"
tab in eServices / Member Search.  If it's shown there, you are done.

It is also shown in the "Data Entry" page of the Cadet Promotions Module, which, as a cadet, you would
not have access to.

The Form 50 question is asked and checked by the CC at the time of approval and does not show anywhere else.

Close this page and send an email to your CC or CDC as to what, if anything, you still need. Generally the two
things left hanging are "Oath" and "Active Participant", which are checked just before submitting a
promotion for approval.

It's also possible it was already submitted and is sitting in your CC's queue.

Either way, ask them.  You won't find you answer here.

Both my encampments are in my training section, so I am pretty sure that the AE cumulative is all I have left. But I will check anyway.

Yes, CAP missions can cross state lines. No, you don't just show up. You are tasked by your chain of command.

Nerf is not ES, CAP is a benevolent, non-combatant service, and you can't "bring friends" to
ES activities.

You need significant senior member guidance and assistance for a SAREx.

Good Afternoon Everyone,

So I am planning on doing several SAREXs this fall and I am writing this specifically for two exercises we will be conducting in both September and October of this year. I had several ideas in mind. Firstly, I will be using private property with owner permission (owner is a family friend of someone in the squadron and offers adequate back country space) for both exercises. I will be also utilizing several squadrons so I should have around thirty participants in total. My first idea, (youll probably giggle at this), but to do a HUGE nerf war scenario based on the Vietnam War. So basically participants would bring friends (it would act as recruitment as well) and I would use the prospects as the (Viet Cong) team with myself or another experienced ESO leading them. Then have all of the CAP members be on the USA team with a full mission base, guard shifts, etc... They would then be given inteligence on enemy movements, downed aircraft (they would have to locate and rescue survivors from VC), Search and Destroy missions, etc... This would allow them to work on a bunch of GTM stuff such as clue finding (for survivors, VC, booby traps), medical care for injured comrades and or survivors and finally map reading.

My second idea for October is to have a missing person search for a group of hikers that has set off and EPIRB and it is unknown if they are actually in distress or not. I also wanted to throw in that it was an animal attack or some sort of something going wrong such as a *tree falling* or something lock that. The teams then have to find the multiple subjects, treat them, and then evacuate them.

What do you all think?

To repeat, the tracking report only shows the items that are common to most achievements. The data entry for cadet promotions in eServices has the specifics for each achievement. Some items such as the CAPF-50 which is required for each phase of the cadet program aren't shown anywhere.

So the track report is not what decides whether one has done everything needed to get promoted? It is just a way for one to see what they have left to do?
