Typically the observer/scanners and pilots are paired together in the units (But not always) They wear flight suits or bdus. When I know I am doing comm I wear the blues (Better public image because the press is usually there for actual missions)

(SNIP)

For new folks who happen to discover this post, I'd like to point out this is not the "standard" for CAP nationwide. It's by no means wrong in any way, just it's how it's done in pejoenc's area.

For example, in my area we create independent aircrews by sortie, nobody ever wears BDUs or flight suits in the plane, we don't requite check-ins over the radio every 15 minutes, and I've never seen anyone show up in blues for a training or real mission.

Again, I'm not saying anything is wrong, just that CAP operations can vary somewhat from state-to-state (and sometimes even within the state).

That's a fair point (local variation). For the hurricane ops last fall here in GA Wing, the commanders guidance was for all personnel to please wear polos for comfort, consistency, and to avoid even the appearance of distracting USAF style uniform compliance issues (focus on the business, not the clothes). Staff, aircrew... everyone in blue polos.

On the other hand, we deployed formed crews from the north part of the Wing (not locally assigned), and that's how we intend to work Wing level exercises: practice deploying South and East as teams/crews just as we would in an actual DR mission.

(PS. some of y'all have been asking... thanks for the best wishes. The wifes transplant and my own surgery went ok, and I'll be back visiting units and PTing with cadets soon).

So after all that - left pocket, with your squadron patch on the right.

Nope.  The CPR patch is not listed in CAPM 39-1 Attachment 8-1 through 8-4, so it cannot be worn on the ABUs. 

This thread also reminds me that I let my certification lapse.  I need to find a local CPR/AED course.

As the "offender" in all this, I offer no apologies.

I shut down two threads around the same time, both for going way off track. In one of them, I was a major contributor to the problem, and decided I should set the example.

In the other, I offered the opportunity to open it back up if someone had any additional contributions to make. The Membership Forum was not the place for an extended discussion of Star Wars humor. I'm a pretty big fan of that universe, but there's a time and a place for it.

At the end of the day, the site admins and mods run things. 

Discussing the mod policy is one thing, surely. Dan laid it out. The thread in question went pretty far afield pretty quickly.

One of the prime complaints about CAP-Talk's efficacy was that a) it wasn't accepting to "new" members ("use the search function!") and b) the topics tended to drift wildly. We've begun addressing both those concerns.

Being snide about the mod policy is not doing a lot to win friends and influence people. The CAP-Talk sandbox everybody plays in here is paid for and run by others. If don't like the mod policy, hey, thats cool. Discuss it.

Otherwise, you're showing up to someone else's house party and complaining that you don't like it because they don't have your brand of pretzels or that the host was unhappy because you peed on the rug.  Its uncouth.

Per site policy, the topic was closed.

Your site policy sucks. I am happy to discuss that with you.

Calling out the mod team for something clearly off-topic won't end in your favor.

The US government has NDAs on file from me, that could (however unlikely) result in my execution, should I violate them. Being banned from a CAP Internet forum is not that scary to me, by comparison.

The topic was answered and drifted into irrelevant, non-CAP banter. Per site policy, the topic was closed. We've locked threads for less. Don't like it? Contact us directly and let's chat; or just don't come to this site. Calling out the mod team for something clearly off-topic won't end in your favor.

"If anyone has anything to add that pertains to the original topic, PM me and we'll open this back up."

Thank you, CAPtalk moderators, for your fearless defense against the terrifying threat of Star Wars fan humor.

Black Suburban.


You painted yours? >:D

I wish. It would cost more to paint it than it's worth. I am toying with the idea of replacing it, though. The price tag keeps scaring me off, though.

Isn't it olde enough that it needs a restoration? >:D

Maybe Garage Squad could help you! :o

2001, with 140,000 on it; barely broken in. Runs great, no rust, just some clear coat issues.

That said, and having gone far afield, say buh-bye.
