There's plenty of precedent for "creative" reenlistment ceremonies. People have done it underwater (in a ceremony that was publicized by the Navy, no less) and in costume before.

This one in particular got picked up by a Facebook page, that feeds on "Veteran Outrage Syndrome" to satisfy the admin's need for attention, an Internet lynch mob formed, and the rest is history.

If you know the difference between being a Leader and being a Manager then you know what leadership is.

True leaders can be managers. True managers can be leaders. When either happens, there is no difference.

If you know the difference between being a Leader and being a Manager then you know what leadership is.

"To begin with, we do not in the Army talk of "management", but of "leadership". This is significant. There is a difference between leadership and management. The leader and the men who follow him represent one of the oldest, most natural and most effective of all human relationships. The manager and those he manages are a later product, with neither so romantic nor so inspiring a history. Leadership is of the spirit compounded of personality and vision; its practice is an art. Management is of the mind, more a matter of accurate calculation, of statistics, of methods, time tables, and routine; its practice is a science. Managers are necessary; leaders are essential".

Warrant ranks are for technical specialists and leaders.

They are officers, but normally not commanders.

They focus on one thing -- perfect track for those who "just want to _____________"  (fly, work with cadets, do ES and so forth)

It addresses the current concern that inexperienced members are having more responsibility thrust on them than they are prepared to undertake.

Professional development for WOs, beyond Level 2, should focus almost exclusively on their specialty track.

Likewise, if it becomes necessary or desirable for a warrant officer to switch to the command/generalist track, there needs to be an expectation that missing PD would be made up, quickly.

Good article on leadership, even though it was by a fellow soldier, it fits across the board on leadership

I recently learned that there are a certain number of specialty tracks that cadets are allowed to attain ratings in. But there are some questions I have that I have not been able to find answers for. What rating level are cadets attain (technician, senior, or master), which of the specialty tracks are we allowed to pursue, are the requirements the same as they are for senior members?

Yes Cadets can earn the specialty track badges. It is:
1). ES
2). Comm
3). History
4). IT

The requirements are all the same for cadets as with seniors. The exception being specific items to the SM program, such as Level1.

Cadets cannot earn the specialty tracks as that is only reserved for SMs. You only earn the badge. As far as what level depends on the track. For ES and history, it is only the basic badge. For Comm, you can earn up to master. I am not sure for IT. It is basic badge only for IT.

The requirements are found in the respective specialty track pamphlets.

Now that I am at a computer, here are the quotes:
Quote from: CAPP 223
Cadets may serve as a Cadet Historian under a senior member Historical Officer.
This does not fulfill a staff duty analysis requirement. Cadets can earn the Basic
Historian Qualification Badge (Technician Rating Badge) if they can complete all
of the requirements for the Technician Rating, but they cannot officially receive
the Technician Rating until they become a senior member and complete the
required time as historian or assistant historian as reflected in eServices as well
as any other task requiring it be completed by a member holding the duty
position of historian or assistant historian.

Quote from: CAPR 100-1
4.7. Cadet Eligibility for Communicator Badge/Patch. Cadets are encouraged to pursue each level of the communicator badges. To do so, cadets must meet all the training requirements listed in the appropriate section of CAPP 214 with the exception of the portions specifically intended for the senior member training program. If a cadet authorized to wear a communications badge or patch subsequently transfers to Senior Member status, badges/patches earned as a cadet may continue to be worn for up to 4 years; however, remaining requirements of CAPP 214 must be completed at each level in order to qualify as holding the actual Technician, Senior, or Master levels of the specialty track. See CAPP 214 for the approval process for cadets.

Quote from: CAPR 35-6
a. CAP Basic Emergency Services Qualification Badge: Complete all requirements of CAPP 213, Emergency Services Officer-Specialty Track Study Guide, Technician Rating. Cadets can earn the Basic Emergency Services Qualification Badge as they can complete all of the requirements for this rating, though they cannot officially receive the Technician Rating until they become a senior member.

Quote from: CAPP 227
Cadets who serve as Cadet Information Technology
Officers (C/ITO) are not eligible to earn the IT specialty
rating. However, those cadets who serve in this capacity for a
minimum of one year and complete the required duties may be
authorized to wear the basic IT Specialty Badge for the duration of
their cadet membership upon approval of their wing commander
(authority may be delegated). The authority to wear the badge
may be documented by completion of a CAPF 2a, Request for and
Approval of Personnel Actions, and retained in the cadet's personnel
file. The wear of the badge as a cadet does not translate to the
earned technician rating once a cadet becomes a senior member.
Cadets who become senior members will need to complete all of
the requirements established at the time that they complete the
training as a senior member.

Top Gun? Is not Top Gun for the Navy?

We need one of its own.

What about Air Force, Strategic Command, or A Gathering of Eagles?

Or maybe a new one titled simply Red Flag?

Oh, come on...

Strategic Air Command came out in 1955 starring Mr. Jimmy Stewart

Brigadier General Stewart.

He was still a Colonel when he filmed that movie. He was an O-7 from 1959-1968.  8)
