The CAP Knowledgebase article http://capnhq.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1257/~/attaching-the-plastic-encased-grade-insignia-to-the-flight-suit, indicates that you can use velcro to attach plastic encased grade insignia to the flight suit.
Says your opinion.
I have had mine attached via Velcro sewn onto the plastic (three different grades - company and field grade) since the early 1990s.
Why? Because it is compliant...
Eclipse, do you sew them on to the NFL jackets you let your people wear with USAF style?
Quote from: Spam on March 15, 2017, 04:00:11 PMEclipse, do you sew them on to the NFL jackets you let your people wear with USAF style?I make sure that those within my AOR wear the uniform parts they wear properly and in a compliant manner, but I'm not going to refuse participation at an activity because a cadet can't afford a jacket they will grow out of in 6 months, nor am I going to allow them to compromise their safety for appearance sake. That runs counter to both the spirit and the practical historical way the cadet program has been run for decades. Your distaste for the practical reality of CAP doesn't change it, nor does it make me a hypocrite, nor will it change what 39-1 says in regards to the actual subject we are discussing in this thread.While you're running The Book of Matthew through Google, perhaps you should scroll a little further to 25:40.In the spirit of mentorship, I suggest you use 2lb-test fishing line instead of regular clear thread, I've found the clear thread stretches too much in the sewing machine.http://www.amazon.com/Berkley-Trilene-XL-Filler-Spools/dp/B001H31D96
