At every formal Civil Air Patrol dinner I have been at for at least the last 20 years the POW/MIA table has been part of the agenda.

^ Which, coupled with Herr Zuckerberg's recent soirée with Congress, stress' again, that the
only way to "win" Facebook and other social media, is not to play.

Those new Kayaking Friends come at a price and a risk that is so inherently high and skewed
it's ridiculous.

This isn't too much different from centuries of silly/personally embarrassing and to some demeaning naval ceremonies to commemorate crossing the equator. Does this reaction mean the first equator crossing is (officially and socially) henceforth a non-event?

There is a difference between swearing an oath to support and defend the Constitution and initiating a pollywog into the Kingdom of Neptune. A rather significant difference. Was this whole things in bad taste? Depends on who you ask, it seems like. apparently, Tennessee's TAG didn't find it funny.

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

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.

Or....and I'm just tossing this out there, you could always remain as a SMWOG, and not even bother participating in the PD program. Want to do ES or CP or AE exclusively and not deal with other stuff? Just don't....

Does anyone happen to have a copy of the old CAPR 35-5 at all?

I have the 1 Jan 2014 version as well.   I have no idea how much is different between that one and the 2008 version that Eclipse posted.

The problem with aviator retention is not in the grade structure, titles, uniforms, etc.  As long as commercial airlines, top end charter operators, private businesses are able to recruit high quality pre-trained aviators from the military nothing will change.  In the past the military has tried bonus payments to keep aviators, they have tried longer lock ins, and a few other programs that at best offer only short term solutions to a long term problem.
Although the Air Force does not as a matter of course go out and play in the mud as Army and Marine aviators, nor do they have to contend with months long ship deployments like the Navy, they are still subjected to frequent PCS Moves, TDY's, and deployments to hostile fire areas. 
So where is the answer?  I don't know.
