There have been 12 school shootings in the 11 weeks of 2018....

No, there hasn't. That's an inflated number purposely used to mislead people who don't know any better.

Let's use real simple criteria: a school shooing is an incident where a student was shot on school grounds. The drug deal on the playground in the middle of the night, the suicide in the parking lot, the drive-by where the building was hit, the little girl who pulled the trigger on the SRO's gun - they don't count.

The real number is 4, not 12. But that number doesn't scream from the headlines as effectively. Yes, that's still too many, but at least it's an honest number.

4.  Right.

1/20 - 1 killed on campus of Wake Forest.
1/22 - 1 injured on campus of Italy High School.
1/22 - 1 injured.  Shots were fired from a truck in the parking lot of NET Charter High School, targeting a crowd of students during lunch time. One student was slightly injured, apparently from injuries unrelated to gunfire. One person was arrested in connection with the shooting.
1/23 - 2 killed, 18 injured at Marshall County High School when 15 year old opened fire during school hours.
2/1 - 5 injured when 12 year old girl negligently discharged a firearm.
2/5 - 1 injured when a student at Oxon Hill High School was shot in the parking lot.
2/14 - Parkland.
3/2 - CMU shooting (questionable according to your definition.)
3/7 - 1 killed, 2 injured at Huffman HS in Birmingham, AL when a gun was discharged in the school building during school hours.
3/14 - 2 killed, 1 injured at University of Alabama at Birmingham.
3/20 - 1 killed, 2 injured at Great Mills HS in Maryland.

Which of these 11 are the 7 you don't consider "school shootings," EMT-83?

Learn and master the materiel instead of trying to game the system.
First time pass, all cadet tests here... back when they were not open book.
Step up your game cadet.

The CAPF 101 from 2001 had item #27:  Technical Specialist. Here wings could add any number of additional specialties, including ones obtained outside of CAP. At one time, I had radiological transport specialist on my 101. Some wings would put SARTECH ratings. I have also seen Canine Search Team placed there. Is this what you are referring to?

Volunteering at a USO definitely counts.

+1 with the caveat(s) that it has to be approved by your CC, so it's best to ask before
doing something if you're "only" doing it for the ribbon.

and if you're there representing CAP, then it won't count.  Non-CAP activities only.
