its appears The Mrs.  has given me the approval to rejoin CAP.  And I believe my therapy sessions after my time as a Sq CC have done good for me.  I hardly remember why I didnt like it.

Be prepared for a shock if you go anywhere near Cadet Programs. FLWG Cadet Programs is as unique as CAWG's.

I struggled with the FLWG Cadet Program.  Not that it was bad, but because it was a cross between the cyber stuff, drill team, and the Ranger program.

Not my style.  Maybe it'll be yours.

I've got 18 months before my son is old enough to join.  If he does, I'm back to active.  If not, then I'll wait for my daughter to turn 12.  If she doesn't join, then maybe when I retire.  I can wash airplanes or polish parade rifles.

With almost 80 cadet and composite squadrons spread over a large geographical area, I doubt your experience represents Florida Wing Cadet Programs as a whole. In my experience, it's a very diverse and robust program. Although I've seen some units focus on specific areas over others, which is probably what you've experienced. However, that's not representative of the entire Wing or its Cadet Programs.

 My philosophy as a Sq Commander was pretty simple in regards to participation and schedules.

Yeah..... but I have like...  LOADS of medals and ribbons and wings and badges . I really believe I owe it to society to show them off. Plus... I have the chiseled physique of a Greek god and I really feel like a baggy flight suit would take away a lot.

In most Senior Squadrons you would be hard pressed to find members who have a "Minimum Basic Service Uniform".
Most of them just have the uniforms they "need". The Polo Shirt combination usually serves them well.

Then that is Command negligence, and it one of the reasons CAP members look like a gaggle every time there's a photo.

I don't understand why people are so quick to point out / proud of the fact that we have scores of CC's, and hundreds if not
thousands of members who are unaware of, or ignore, simple, clear rules about dress and appearance, like what the
"minimum" CAP uniform is.

Even more "negligent", should they be photographed in an AF style uniform with the civilian jackets, as you've pushed on this forum.
