Have you considered a membership in the Air Force Association? I believe they have reduced rates for CAP Cadets, send out a very good magazine, and support local CAP units.

Yes, the server most likely sees the 'upload date' as being old. So if you still like the photo, simply upload it again. It will have a new date at that point. :)

I could use some ideas for Christmas gifts for my Cadet. He's obsessed with all things aviation. (and CAP  ;D) Just had his first O-ride and is hooked.


You didn't specify a spending limit.

How old? Is there a possibility of flight training? If its in the realm, you could go ahead and get him the ground school:

I noticed in attachment 1, SUI checklist item 2, ("Has the unit adopted a set of annual goals?") under verification it states, "Squadron uploads unitís goals document to eServices."  Then it references paragraph 4.2.1.  But that paragraph does not mention such a requirement, nor does it explain how/where to upload your goals document.

A potential "gotcha" when  your SUI comes around.

So, the apparent disconnect comes about because it is the SUI process that requires the unit goal upload to eServices, not the reg. Restated, nobody needs to routinely upload their unit goals.  Until they get scheduled for an SUI.  At that point, the unit will receive instructions on how to prepare for the SUI, which will inlculde uploading various documents for review by the inspectors. (Along with other documents in other functional areas.)

Sorry for the confusion.  We will take a close look at trying to explain that more clearly.

How about some cool shades to wear while O flying? Perhaps he could wear them while at encampment as well (if on the list)?

Hey! My daughter is staffing TX winter encampment!

Have you looked at some of the fun items on vanguard? Water bottles hoodies etc?

Air and Space is a very pretty publication. We get it here and they get tattered from the four males in the house re-re-re-reading them.

If he's really into aerospace, the gold standard for industry news is Aviation Week and Space Technology (more expensive, but you might wrangle a discount). I've subscribed since I was a teenager and it has VASTLY helped me in my (defense and aerospace) career.

If he really just likes the best of military coverage, there's great pubs like Air Forces Monthly.
https://pocketmags.com/airforces-monthly-magazine/december-2017#549059e37d33f

If he's into learning to fly, consider Plane and Pilot (fairly cheap too)

Or even AOPA student membership with free mag: https://www.aopa.org/apps/training-and-safety/learn-to-fly/student-resources/student-membership/?offercode=S1712WZPC&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIxoXYovLI1wIVG57ACh1JcwoqEAAYASAAEgL_g_D_BwE


Recommend do NOT give him trinkets for encampment beyond whats on that list. They'll get confiscated as contraband (nothing personal, its just a no no during training).


Merry Christmas Mrs. Claus!

Not saying your photo wasn't complaint but,...

Possibly, someone in your chain of command may have purged photos that weren't compliant to the standards. I just did a survey of our Wings photos and we identified some real prize winning non compliants (HOLY COW!) that we'll get around to purging (we've got higher priorities right now to get UCC and TLC classes going, I just did this during a telecom that was boring and let me surf the photo database while listening).

For that minority, it looked like one of those "bad prom photo" memes...  :angel:  Recommend just taking a fresh one that meets the examples shown in the module, and upload it. (I need to delete/refresh my own one)!
