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.

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.

Really?  You honestly feel that an adult ignoring a regulation is the same thing as refusing to allow
a cadet to participate in an activity because they don't have the proper outerwear?

Especially in light of the fact that the regulations explicitly prohibit requiring a cadet to wear anything except the MBU (which doesn't include any outerwear,
nor is there even a ready source to even obtain the proper outwear for the MBU anymore), unless the garment is issued to the cadet or
the purchase is voluntary?

These are the same things in your mind?

Forgoing the nonsense about ES and encampments being "optional", and pretending NHQ hasn't essentially back-door required BDUs
since the Curry uniform program started, do we bar cadets from unit meetings because they wore the wrong jacket?

I'm laughing at you pontificating as usual about "command negligence", while you hypocritically espouse adherence to the uniform regs that you've clearly, knowingly, advocated that commanders ignore - when YOU think it is justified, as "Pope Eclipse the First".

Then, I laugh at your straw man argument of barring cadets from (indoor!) meetings, when I've never suggested it. Divert, obfuscate, self-deny, and wiggle, you may.

I am in the same boat. My son is turning 12 tomorrow so we are headed to the local squadron for the next meeting. I think I am more excited about rejoining than he is about starting up...

I think I know how you feel (and welcome back)!

My third sons birthday is today - and he is swearing in at next weeks meeting with me as his first Commander.

I'm pleased beyond reason at the timing, since I'm handing over my command of GA045 early in a couple of weeks to do something else. His oldest brother the GTL Earhart cadet will be his first C/CC too, before he departs for college to learn how to be an aerospace engineer.

I always enjoy when I hear a consultant (or someone else, but usually a consultant) say "we need to set the glide slope for this project."

"So the engine is out and we're trying to maximize the distance we can fly before we hit the ground?"

Unless the project is a glider. Then it was just cut loose. Still doesn't seem like a good thing :P

I have sent my renewal, fingerprint card, and dues to national to re-join but how do my previous specialty tracks, ratings, rank, etc., become reinstated now? I am kind of a unique case since my senior membership expired about 8 years ago so the CC was not sure.

Grade will be the discretion of CC, completed PD should come back, ratings will all be gone,
though badges earned you can prove could be re-entered.

You're on the hump of when things were staring to get moved over to eServices.

Anything you can substantiate should be as easy as a memo to NHQ by your PDO or CC.

I do remember using eServices so I am hoping that national keeps the old records that were entered, but understand that units are only required to keep member records for five years.

The 120 system is fairly recent, so stuff that goes in there, Comm - comms, etc., prob would not have been
entered (surprising how many CC's still don't know to do this).
