...are encouraged to initially remove CAP professional development ribbons...
Cadets may choose to reduce the height of their ribbon bar...
Thanks! Now for short stacking, can you pick the ribbons or is it like the highest three?
Quote...are encouraged to initially remove CAP professional development ribbons...Why the choice? Why not the lowest awards? Or keep awards of their choice???Is it because the PD awards are indicated mostly by the grade attained?
Honestly, what would be the point of loading up a rack with CSAs?

The verbiage does not appear to allow for more then two of the same ribbon in those circumstances,however it's probably one of those things NHQ didn't consider as it's so rare. Best to contact them in that case.CAPR 39-3, page 4-5http://www.capmembers.com/media/cms/R039_003_83459660D4F44.pdf"b. Subsequent awards of the same decoration or ribbon are denoted by the CAP bronzetriangular clasp, worn on the ribbon of the original award. A CAP silver triangular clasp isequivalent to, and is worn in the place of, five bronze claps. Silver clasps are placed to the wearer’sright side of a bronze clasp. A maximum of four devices may be worn on any ribbon, unless otherwise stated in this regulation. When the number of devices exceeds the authorized maximum, asecond ribbon is worn to the wearer’s left of the initial ribbon. The second ribbon counts as onesubsequent award. When future awards reduce the devices to a single ribbon the second ribbon willbe removed. Devices are illustrated in Attachment 3."With that said, and without intending to raise the argument again about "what" is considered community service, anyone clocking more then 2500 CSA hours in a typical CAP career is probably getting a pretty liberal interpretation of what is acceptable, or they are just swinging by CAPonce every couple months to pick up their CSA, and not doing much for CAP. I'd probably also be in the camp of a 3rd ribbon being excessive, regardless of earning it or not.
If this "award" is apparently so easy to get, why is the bar for it so low? Double the hours required.
