Title: Show Yourself!
Post by: BigMojo on October 23, 2007, 09:32:21 PM
Not sure if this will be a bust or not...but here goes, since I'm new around I like to put faces to names. So...show yourself! But here's the catch...make the pic "off topic" no CAP activities...show yourself involved in a hobby, with a significant other, or whatever....

Those anonymous member that are apparently in the "witness protection program" you are still encouraged to participate.

I'll start it out.

Here's me doing something I love...fresh dolphin dinner (Mahi-Mahi to you non-floridians) (by the way, I lost the fuzz to be grooming compliant when I joined up).

Here's a shot of me hiking the mountians last summer. My oldest son and I went out on a random spot and started up. About 1 hour up we found this cave. My son was taking the pix.

I also lost the chin fuzz. Now I'm clean & shiney from the neck up. 8)

A buddy of mine just emailed me these pics out of the blue.  Said he forgot to send them to me when he visited me back in '05 in DC.  I was off to work on the weekend.  Can tell by the lack of tie.  If I remember correctly, this was the day we fired a fellow AIC (Agent in Charge) that was helping me that day because he came in smelling of alcohol.  BAC was .07, legal to drive, but not legal to work with a firearm.  Guy gave up an $86K job just like that.  And that's before OT and stuff.

As small a detail as it is, you'll notice that my "leather" doesn't match my shoes and belt.  We had just switched from Glocks to Sigs and I hadn't gotten my brown leather yet.  Huge pet peeve of mine, even though no one would ever know unless I had to "break leather".  I think I miss that job now.

Frostop Root Beer: God's gift to root beer connoisseurs.  The stuff is liquid gold and only costs 99cents a liter.  Near impossible to find though...unless you have sources (I work in a grocery store and have the Coke vendor bring it in for me).

Hey, its legal in WI.  Not many outside of the state know this, but a minor of any age can consume alchohol as long as they're under the supervision of a parent, legal guardian, or spouse who is of legal drinking age.  I don't hesitate to say that I've taken advantage of this law.  >:D

Reminds me of a funny story...

Long, long before my grandfather passed, we were in Florida visiting, and we had gone to a fish house for dinner one night.  My father and aunt had limited my grandfathers beer intake to just one, and after a while of just drinking root beer after, he pulled my dad aside and said "Can I have one without the root in it?".

I've found that staring instills more uneasiness than yelling (well, in everyone except the Cadet PAO the year I was Encampment Commander)...

The guy in the middle is yours truly, I was a LCpl and 15 mins after this picture got gigged for having my ribbons in the wrong order! LOL Quite amusing. I was with with 2nd LSB at the time of this pic, these two guys were buddies of mine that were getting ready to graduate from school. I went to their graduation for the heck of it.

That is one cool looking flash.  Too bad it isin't authorized!  I think it should be, as some wings allow ground team members to wear berets. 

Just one suggestion... if the flash were authorized, it would be worn by itself without the Ground Team badge; specialty badges are only worn above the branch tape on the BDU.

Now if you were a cadet officer, then you'd wear the rank insignia on the flash.

It's not an issue at all. Even in uniform, we're still allowed a little thing like free thought and personal preference. We follow our rules, even if we don't like them.

If you remove the liner from the beret, it won't look like there's a pizza stuck in it.  Liners make berets look pretty funky.  Of course, that color is pretty funky by itself.

Give it a few years, D. Talked to someone recently that met with a Propper rep. Apparently, the Army has been speaking with Propper on a redesigned uniform, due to the general dissatisfaction with the ACU.

Couple of things were discussed. Eliminating the Mandarin collar, redesigning the chest pockets, new pattern on the pants. Biggest thing is that it will most likely be in MultiCam.

Velcro isn't really a fire hazard in itself. Biggest issue is the melting to you. The Velcro on the Aircrew ACU is designed to be extremely high temp resistant. Anything that will melt the Velcro will melt you too.

That's the rumors. I really got no porb with velcro closure on the shoulder & ankle pockets. The outer pocket where the patches go though shouldn't be. As you know, that sticks to everything & everyone. Go back to sewn on, including badges. Chest pockets aren't real useful no matter what the design, but if they're going to be there then slash pockets (like now) with zipper closure like flight suits, and extent the top so it rides the bottom of the branch/name tapes. Far as the collar, I could go for back to traditional & move the grade back up along with branch insignia, that'd be popular. Or, I could go with a redesign on the mandarin collar so it looks right in garrison config.

And multi-cam, man that would be way better. Gonna piss off the AF though. They made their uniform dif than ours but same basic color pallet so it kind of blends, and now we're talking about going to another dissimilar pallet. Yeah nice. Just for the love of God could everyone agree on one boot color we can all use. There's gotta be better things to waste the taxpayers dollars on.
Title: Re: Show Yourself!
Post by: mikeylikey on March 15, 2008, 06:07:46 PM
^ Seems the AF was the only service that has gone to something other than TAN boots.  That just means their boot costs are more than ours.  So, silly move on their part!

As far as bringing back branch insignia, I have been saying that since 03 when Army times ran the first pictures of the ACU's.

I would love to get patches, badges and insignia sewn on instead of Velcro.  Velcro is just plain crazy.  Honestly, the only thing that I have changed on my ACU's is the rank insignia and current unit patch.  Sewn on looks so much better. 

I would keep the mandarin collar though.  I have found it usefull, as I am sure others who have spent time in Iraq/AFGH do.
Title: Re: Show Yourself!
Post by: DNall on March 15, 2008, 06:25:56 PM
Yeah I'm not saying get rid of it (the collar), just it can be changed slightly to make it better for both purposes. However, if that new under the armor shirt takes off, I could see a garrison version of the ACU top & that other thing have the mand collar. Who knows.

One of the things I really hate about velcro... when branch tapes are stuck down in the middle, but sticking out on the end. It looks like crap & catches on stuff. Annoying as hell. That & ending up plus or minus a flag when you pass someone in a hallway. It's freakin stupid. I don't even know why every service has to have their own utility uniform, that's the dumbest thing I ever heard, but different boots? That's psychotic.

I can't agree with you more.  Save tax dollars and use one utility.  On the boot issue, Marines are in tans, Army is in Tans, is the navy using tan boots (I think so), so why couldn't USAF also wear tan boots?  Are they better than everyone else?  I could see if they went with a blue boot (that whole Air Force blue thing), but come on!  They are only hurting themselves in the long run.  Their boots will cost so much more because less of them are being produced.  I think a highschool economics class will teach you that!

Post by: DNall on March 15, 2008, 10:48:28 PM
Blue boots? Sounds more umpa loompa than Air Force. And, blue suede boots? Just, no, okay, no. I'm not saying I like tan, I do like not shining them, and my issues are extremely comfortable, but we really all need to be in the same boots. Freakin truman got famous in the senate during WWII for something about like that IIRC. Need a little more of that in congress.

You do understand the mini wings are also called shirt wings right... you CAN wear the large wings on the shirt, but it looks silly. If you had a 3.8 on an engineering/math/science degree &/or graduated the academy (which is pretty much an engineering degree regardless of major), and got selected over 95% of your classmates, and graduated a three year highly intensive training process, then I might cut you some slack for being so proud of it. You CAN wear large wings on the shirt in the AF too, but people don't. It's just a little bit pretentious. You can do what you want, but I'm asking nicely.

I think what he meant is that if you were an Air Force Academy grad/jet pilot, you might  be able to get away with it.  I think the large wings are a little obnoxious.  Especially if you have Command Pilot wings.  They look huge!

Oh, I'm not questioning the colonel's ability or anything like that...  I'm sure he is a fine officer.  This is directed more at the folks who put the picture of him without a t-shirt underneath in the manual and should have known better.

And they shouldn't photoshop anything.  Not only does it look tacky, it screams of "We put this manual together at the last minute!"  Not a good message to send, especially when thousands of people have waited years for a quality product.

We are still waiting .  By my math the other manual was what 1993, the next came out in 1997.  So '97 to '08 is 11 years, plus the original '93 to '97 is 4 years, 4 plus 11 is 15 years.  We have been waiting for a good reference for 15 years.  (Was it '93 or 1991??)

Either way 15 or 17 years depending on when the manual 2 manuals came out on was. 

Are we shooting for 20 years for a decent looking reg NHQ??

Get your MultiCam now: http://www.1800nametape.com/multicam.htm

As for the Air Force, they wanted their own thing, now they've got it. As John Wayne said, "Life's tough. It's tougher when you're stupid". Once everything is said and done, the only thing that the AF will use that is common with the Army on their uniforms is the T-shirt. Nice savings there. That's what? About a six dollar item for a pack of three?

Once all the branches have their own uniforms, no two will have the same color footwear, and very few common items. Everyone wanted their own individual identity, but they did it at the expense of their service members.

The filter is in the SAS bag. I didnt want to open up the seal and waste the filter just for the picture. IMERT is the Illinois State "Oh my god its the end of the world who do we call?" team.
OK, I give up, whats with the riot gear, IMERT-Central-BLS?  Isnt your gas mask missing its filter?

Im just guessing that you haven't been deployed yet. Those are awfully new looking black BDUs, and minus all the regulations patches and tapes. Also, for the person who asked about the riot gear...it must be private purchase because we arent issued that stuff. Its only in emergency caches. And we have switched to khaki BDUs now, though the wearer of them in that photo has until 2010 to phase out his ninja suit...most of us have done so already (Im also with IMERT...Basic Life Support Specialist...North Team).

Off-topic, but Senior Members without grade and SM NCOs wear the enlisted flight cap.  SM flight officers and officers wear the officer flight cap.

Yes, usually it is a waste of money to invest in the enlisted flight cap when you'll wear it for less than 6 months.

Yes, usually it is a waste of money to invest in the enlisted flight cap when you'll wear it for less than 6 months.


Then I was misinformed. I was told when I came back as a senior that I was supposed to wear that cap. Never thought to read the regs as everyone I knew was wearing that. Good to know for future reference. ;D

  Either way, lets not be critical.  This is a show-and-tell picture thread, NOT a show-and-pick-on thread.

   Also, 2nd Lt. Rudin, I am thinking that you might want want to go back and look at the regs on some of the stuff you posted for the Memorial Day Color guard thread.  My Commander and I found a good hunk of it out of date and not applying to TX Wing policy.

[PERSONAL COMMENTARY]  I thought that this thread was created in the spirit of community development.  A place where we can post pictures of ourselves doing what we enjoy doing (with exception) and a place to put a (screen)name with a face.

While I can understand the "joy" in pointing out all these uniform discrepancies, do we really want to take this thread and turn it into a mocking session? 

I mean, someone joins the board, starts to feel comfortable in posting their opinions and experience, then decides that they want to become more invovled and posts a picture.  The response isn't - hey I know you, great to see you again, but DUDE! WTF is up with your uniform, and it becomes a mockery session.

I think that there is probably more appropriate ways to "inform" people of their uniform issues in their photos without making them the laughing stock of the internet (PM system possible???).

With that in mind...

Here is one of my me and my wife on a cruise last January (08).

It's really not joy that prompts us to point out these issues with uniforms, it's more like disdain, disappointment, or any host of other negative feelings.  If someone posts a picture of them in a jacked up uniform on here it means that they're walking around in public looking the same way.  That doesn't make any of us happy.

I didn't see anything that was inappropriate.  If someone got their feelings hurt from the posts that have been made, then they need far more help then we can give them.

These were taken this afternoon, when my Shirt took me and a friend up for a 1 1/2 hour cross-country training flight with his instructor.  He said he took us up because "we kicked butt at encampment".  Oorah.  The two landings that Shirt did were the absolute best he'd ever done, and he and his instructor were pleased as punch. 
Me looking kinda scary in the back of the Cessna 172.  "I killed a man.... With this thumb!"

This is the plane we took up, which just so happens to be the same one that Shirt first soloed in.

They're a bit of work but with advanced planning can go really smooth.  It's a great time for a tailgate with friends and to spend a day together out of uniform.  We also sent five color guards onto the field to present the colors during the national anthem like we did last year.

As for your first comment, I'll let that slide untouched... ;)

Don't tell me CAP doesn't present unique opportunities - the only thing cooler than being able to get this pic was that the
pilot was a former ILWG cadet (now a Major) and we swapped a little bling.

I mean, seriously, how cool is that!

Hey, eclipse, was that former Illinois Wing cadet with the BUFF a red headed irishman named Watson?

I noticed this young man needs a shave as well. Unfortunantly the new thing catching on in CAP is the attitude that "we are not the military" and so people think they can wear the uniform looking like that not matter what 39-1 says. We are recruiting members that think we are a EMS 1st responder type unit and they dont feel they need to meet military grooming standards. but I digress. thats not the purpose of this thread. Sorry to have intruded.

But I thought Mr. Badder was the police?  I am so confused now aaaahhhhhh.
However if you are going to post a picture of yourself in uniform do so correctly.  Maybe you may not like to be corrected but if someone doesn't then the standards will drop.  If you don't like the standards get into the correct uniform or get out.  Remimber the pictures you post are a reflection of not only yourself but of CAP as a whole, if you look jacked up it doesn't say much for us.  For those that don't care to correct uniform infractions or conduct misfractions are part of the problem.  Standards need to be upheld but then again that is the NCO comming out me.

ok all......

Look at the photo. The only thing I mentioned about the pic was the shave. 39-1 says clean shaven.

Look at the uniform. Dark colors, looks servicable and pressed or ironed. Nametapes look good, and the white parts are vivid.  IOW the uniform is not jacked up like many pics I see.  Throw some starch at the cover and it is a good photo.

Uhh.... ok... 

Let me regain my composure because I just had to hit the backspace button many times...

...

...

If you choose to wear the uniform of the United States Air Force and you choose not to conform to the standards that they have set for us to wear it, then it is you who is not showing people common decency and respect.

Wear an undershirt.  Shave.  Get a haircut.  Don't wear goatees.  Don't wear hard metal rank on your hat.  39-1 is not the best written manual in the world, but these people should at least make an attempt at reading it before they crawl into a uniform.

There.  That was better than what I first typed.

Oh, and don't get your feelings hurt if we dime you out for not following the regulations for wearing the uniforms.  If you can't figure it out, there is a golf shirt and gray pants you can wear.

Post your picture on military.com or afforums.com and you'll get a much less friendly response than the ones we've given.

These were taken during our family vacation when I was stupid enough to ask my dad to take me solo on the tube.  Anyway, I bet I beat the world record for skipping on top of the water.  All three times I wiped out was because I was flung into *what felt like* g-turns while going over 2 foot waves.  I would fly out, flip on my back, and skip a few times before sinking into the water.  Quite fun, really, although by the time wipeout 3 came about my head was hurting.

Your personal opinion only. The proper place to stow the bdu cover when not wearing it is in the cargo pocket.

Quote from: CAPR 39-1, Table 2-3, Line 6
When not being worn, is stowed in either of the lower cargo pockets on the trousers.

Starching the bdu cap then folding it to properly stow put creases in the cap. Which, IMO, looks bad. I just pull it out of the pocket, give it a quick snap to open it, put it ona dn give the top seam a quick run between the fingers. Good smooth, flat top, straight sides.

That would be pointless since it will get all crunched up in your BDU pants pocket anyway, no?

That's nothin, my dad used to get the boat going in circles so that your effectively jumping 5+ foot waves. After drinking a few gallons of lake water doing that and being whipped back and forth for 20 minutes on tight turns at 50 mph, then you're having fun.

But the real fun stuff is when you've got one of the ones that is built like 3 intertubes rotated to vertical and connected within a cover. Then you get to do rolls that can be difficult to stop.

P.S. I know my tie is crooked

Since you mentioned it, is that a USAF-reg tie?  Looks awfully thick.

I think he's got it tied in a full Windsor. Mine looks like that, too, and my tie came straight out of an AF uni shop.

Why is he shrugging his shoulders?  Is the blouse too tight?  (That's the coat for you young kids out there)

Yep.

I'm not shurgging. It just looks like that. In fact, I was actually trying to droop my shoulders as much as possible because the "boards" in the armpit area were so stiff, they brought my arms a bit too high for comfort :D

[uniform nazi]

Thats a good lookin uniform!! (you too, but that could be a cppt issue) Don;t care about the tie

Glad to know there are other Uniform-Nazis out there :P  We UNs gotta stick together  ;)

Shade 1620, sir ;)

That was a loaded question.  Now look at the label on the jacket...  Dollars to donuts it's not 1620, and you are in violation of CAPM 39-1.

In keeping with the original thread of showing ourselves in other activities besides CAP...

Here I am with the BBQ team I'm on...the Bluff City Sweet Loins...after winning Grand Champion at the 2008 Cowboy Cookoff in Sikeston, MO this August.

This hobby is one of the reasons I can't wear Blues right now ;)

the Bluff City Sweet Loins

What a great name for a BBQ team!

Thanks.  The team has been together for 11 years now. The "Bluff City" part comes from our sponsor, "Bluff City Beer Miller Distributors", whose owner is one of the members of the team and a fraternity brother of mine.  The "Sweet Loins" was decided on about 8 years ago.  "Nothing Wrong With A Pig In A Thong" came from a night of *ahem* celebration about 5 years ago.  I was introduced to the team by my oldest brother who is a founding member of the team (he's third from the left end in the pic). I've been with the team for about 5 years now...and was "initiated" into the team 3 years ago and now a full team member. My specialty is Boston Butt.

Our three major competitions are the Redneck BBQ Festival in late April/early May & the Cowboy Cookoff which coincides with the JC Bootheel Rodeo in August (both in Sikeston, MO), and the Cape BBQ Fest in early September (In Cape Girardeau, MO).  We travel some to other competitions but with work and all it is a bit hard at times.  We just do it for fun.  Some of them guys out there though are hard core...and we still beat 'em. LOL

Come visit during the competitions...we'll make sure your uniform gets a bit tight. :)

They are referred to as Mess Dress Party Shirts.

Classic!

The "tradition" is to remove the sleeves from the top seam to the french cuff and replace it.  As well as removing the back panel minus the shoulders.

I've seen Hawaiian sleeves and iron on A/C's looks pretty sweet in the right setting.

The last ones were posted a year or so ago.  I have since lost a ton of weight and feel that I look completely different.  This is good news, as I will be attending my first CAP meeting(as a senior member) in less than a month. 

These photos were taken during the Parade of Ships in Seattle last weekend.  We are currently two months into a lengthy patrol.  We got underway a day after I reported to the Alameda CA area.  I look forward to getting to know my new homeport and CAP unit.

The last photo is of us emerging from the Golden Gate Bridge, into the Pacific Ocean on the 2nd of June.

Just a reminder to everyone about how to post photos to this and other threads.

You can upload a photo from your computer to the CAPTalk Photo Gallery under the "Forum Members" category:  http://captalk.net/index.php?action=mgallery

Once it's uploaded, it will give you the link and code to copy/paste into a post to share it in this or other threads, if you'd like.

They do require approval, but I don't get a notification that there are items pending approval so I just have to go in from time to time to check.  If you want quicker action, just send me a PM and I'll get right to it.  As of now, there are no items pending and I don't believe they expire, so I don't know what could have been "never approved"

Quick question: I noticed you were wearing a black hat, did they change the NJDDT red hat to a black one?

Back when I was in NJ Wing, the Red Hat (one of the steps to Arete and Adamas) was earned as part of being on NJDDT and the Yellow Hat was earned as part of being a NJ GSAR grad. Both were highly cherished and respected through the Cadet program and the Wing at large.

The caption to the picture says he was at Encampment as a PAO. Encampment staff probably wears the black hats for standardization purposes while at encampment.

Title: Re: Show Yourself!
Post by: Stonewall on January 16, 2010, 07:18:29 PM
How do you like that fore-grip?

I'll answer your question but lets not get off topic and start talking about guns...

I prefer a "gangsta grip" (Vertical Grip) as far forward as possible because I am a strong believer in white light attachements on individual weapons (M9/M4).  That particular set-up is from Safariland and is made for M4s without a rail system.  It clamps on towards the front and can easily be removed.  I was testing it out for my squadron during that weekend.  It does the job without adding too much weight, but I prefere a complete rail system as it is more versital.

I don't believe that is airsoft. There is a box at the end of the Gun Barrel. If I was told correctly, that is the "Lazer Tag" Simulations that the Armed Forces go through. I might be incorrect though.

Actually kid, its a BFA.  Blank Firing Adapter.  Siiiiiiiiigh.

Gunner, Now-a-days, I live by the verticle foregrip on my Colt Commando.  Never thought I would like it until I tried it.  So much easier on the wrist.  You know, when you hold it on target for a while, my forward wrist used to get sore, or patrolling with it with your wrist all twisted.  They have a version that has a small set of bipods that you pull out of the bottom also.  Those are nice.  You know, for when Im playing Airsoft!! ;D >:D
Title: Re: Show Yourself!
Post by: Gunner C on January 17, 2010, 06:39:19 PM
I'm glad you explained BFA.  :o All sorts of chances for hijinks there.  I wish I could find the picture of me in the desert test firing my CAR-15 (old short version of M-16).  A bit different - short barrel, had original round forearm stock before the A-2 got it.  Full auto (no burst).  Problem was it didn't have the range you'd like in desert that you'd like (once I got there I pined for an M-14).

Airsoft. ::: sigh :::

Here's where I realized I grabbed the LPer sticks with no coax on them, and had to improvise.  Found a paperclip, stuck it in the BNC connector, cut my pringles can in half, and wedged it onto the connector as well.  Pringles cans have a mylar coating inside them (the silver stuff) which lets you turn them into cantennas and receive only in the direction of the open end.

All three at the same time, I was AD, Father was ANG, he got out for about 18yrs then went back when my brother went in after I did. Dad had to give up a stripe to go back in so he was an E-5 in ARNG. In USAF about 22 yrs ago he was an E-7, transferred to ANG had to give up a stripe and became an E-6. Then went back in after 18yrs of being out and had to lose another stripe and be an E-5.
Father and brother in the same unit, in Mosul together in 05 to 06, during the same time I was in Ramadi. We had actually gotten into trouble because it was found out that all three of us were in country at the same time and there are no other Killion males in age range to have kids. The problem with that was that we were on missions at the same time more than once and a couple of times were in a firefight at the same time... The really bad part of that... My dad and brother were in the same HWWMV together, dad running comms, doug (brother) gunning.

To me, there was no better looking uniform piece than the Ike jacket. I would wear the life out of one of those. But no, the jacket does fit correctly, if you look at the button line, there is no pulling of the fabric or anything. The problem was my cell phone, that and a four across rack.

Plus the jacket is supposed to show the "hourglass" figure.

Here's me in a WWII reenacting uniform I put together this year. The uniform is based off an Eagle Squadron fighter pilot (Eagle Squadron 133) who then joined the 8th Air Force, 4th Fighter Group, 336th fighter squadron with Captain Don Gentile, Captain John Godfrey, and Colonel Donald Blakeslee. I also used Major James Goodson's uniform to base mine off of.

And here's me in 2009 at the Renaissance Faire in Irwindale, Calif. as a pirate fighting Captain Jack Sparrow. When I joined CAP in August of this year I still had a goatee which I reduced to a mustache so I could wear the Air Force uniforms. I miss it! If I could wear the Air Force uniforms and have the goatee I would grow it back immediately! :)

I agree! I love the USAAF WW2 uniforms! The first issue USAF uniforms like Robert Mitchum wore in the movie The Hunters, they should have kept them and not changed them at all. I like this shade of blue. :)

OK guys and gals...19 years and about 52 pounds ago. Fun times, though; the guy with me was Vought test pilot Jim Read. Vought had just been spun out of LTV, after the corporate parent got more interested in materials and steel. And that was my old cadet flight suit, with all the CAP stuff stripped off it. It was during the teeth of what was then the USAF's Joint Primary Aircraft Training System (JPATS) competition, and all the vying rivals were showing off their airplanes...that is, the companies that had airplanes to show. (A few were "paper airplanes" that never really made it.) So in addition to this Pampa, I got to take a ride in a T-45 and the Pilatus PC-9. The MB339 never really happened, nor did the German RFsomethingorother whose name escapes me right now. This was taken in Grand Prairie, TX...

Me at #2 son's First Communion this afternoon...

Conversation went something like this:

Spouse:  "I picked up all the cleaning."
Me: "Great, we're all set for the weekend..."
Me (at about 1030 for a 1pm service): "Um, where's my dress pants? They aren't in any of the bags."
Spouse: "Well, they said they gave me everything we dropped off."
Me:"Looks like everything from encampment is missing, two pairs of gray slacks, plus my uniform pants, and several shirts!"
Me:"Just FYI, I have nothing dressy to wear."

Spouse: "You know where Olive Garden is?  DXL is next door, they open at 11."
For the uninitiated, "tall" at Sears or JC Penney (or most other retailers) = "30 Long", I am 34/36, and forget
about getting 37/38 shirts any place "normal" off the shelf.  Also, DXL opens at noon, not 11.


Doors open: 12:00
Pants, shirt, tie, belt, paid: 12:07
Home: 12:25
Arrive church: 12:55pm

Complements all day on my excellent color choices.   :D

Not really...I've met Gen Yeager several times.  But...he was not my pilot....But the jet was the one he used for the 50th Anniversary flight of breaking the sound barrier and for his final AF ride.  Both at Edwards AFB.

Still it was a great flight... Mach 1.25.

So I have flow from the very fast in the Eagle to very slow with 1.6 hours logged flying the Goodyear Blimp.

It's called - "Don't be at your summer house when my pool is empty..."
(I'm their "for free, 11 O'clock at night IT guy", and "is the power on house checker", etc.)

Use of the pool requires a health screening and a reservation.  FYI - the health screening is after you swim, since there's now enough
chemicals in it make it a HAZMAT area.

I don't know about your area but in some areas here you can get a meter from the water department and tap a fire hydrant to fill up your pool. It's cheaper than filling it through your house meter. Might be worth checking into :).
Title: Re: Show Yourself!
Post by: Eclipse on July 31, 2011, 11:23:36 PM
I think we can do that here, too.  And there are services that will come and fill it from rain water or towns where the water is "cheaper".
That hydrant water isn't always the cleanest, though, unless you do it right after they flush.

prob only about $10 to fill it.

Indeed it is, except when the neighbor lights the fire  ;)


That was a mere fraction of the history of the squadron, the commander that was there for most of my cadet time was in command for 29 years, a great person to know.  I still remember my first meeting, it was actually at the CG (Aux I think) station across the water to the south because our trailer was getting moved.  I've still got a scar on my finger from when I was getting the trailer prepared to hold meetings again.  Good times and good memories.


Bet ya can't tell when the first CAP meeting was held at Albert Whitted.


Can't say that I can, that would require that I had lived at least 2.5 times my current lifetime.  While being around for the advent of TV, computers, and many other technical innovations I can honestly say that I wouldn't trade my generation for much of anything.  While it is awesome that my predecessors were able to have so many "firsts" I like to take those firsts and make them better, that or find my own way to leave my stamp on a place in time.


I am rather curious, I know of at least one Spaatz cadet that that unit produced, are you aware of any others and perhaps their names/numbers?  I think it'd be nice to present the unit with a memento of the top cadets that it has produced in its long and storied past.  This is something I'm trying to put together for my current unit as well.

The B-25J Mitchell has 18 .50 cal guns BTW.


The SR-71 is one big bird!

Well, the Festivus Tree is up!  Takes about 4 hours - lit to full depth on every branch,
pulls about 13 amps, and is warm when you put your hand inside.   Something I procrastinate
about every year, but it sure looks nice when it's done.  I'd guess about 2000 lights.

This stock-art-worthy image was taken in front of Macy's Marshall Field's this afternoon.
Soon to be #193 in the the eClipseco / Bradford Exchange Holiday Plate collection:

This is me as the Chaplain for my father's WWII Reunion group, 13th "Jungle" Air Force Veterans Association.  I was their Chaplain and Membership Manager.  I also did WWII Army Air Forces living history and this is my uniform from that.  I did my dad's unit.  I would wear this uniform with my chaplain's insignia to the hanger dances that we had at the reunions.  The vets loved it.  I had left CAP several years ago and now I am back.  I was a Captain and CO for my Squadron as well as ESO, Historian, GTL / GTM, and Mission Scanner.  I had the training for Mission Observer but left prior to submitting the paperwork for the wings.  Now I am having to start over again.

Photo 1:  Nice Ahrens-Fox!  But that pressure ball needs some polish.

Photo 2:  Met ADM Allen when he was the D9 CO.  He showed up to STA Belle Isle during the Detroit 300 celebration, we had a security zone set up for three tall ships moored on the river.  Took the time to talk and shake hands with all the POs, nonrates, and even a few lowly auxies.

#1.  I wish the Ahrens-Fox was mine!  It's the property of the Charleston FD, SC.  The photo was taken last summer on a visit.

#2.  ADM Allen is a great and very personable guy.  I was charged with escorting him around the Eagle and giving him a tour, in addition to piping him aboard and ashore.  He asked me quite a bit about my family and I, especially after hearing that we are from the Port Arthur, Texas area, which had been hit very hard by Hurricane Rita (the hurricane that came within a month of Katrina).

Part of me getting active again in CAP meant my 6 1/2 year old son had to tag along to meetings.  He's made a lot of friends there, to include a young cadet who isn't muych bigger than he is.  He calls him his "best friend".

My son found the smallest pair of jungle boots I've ever seen in a locker at the squadron a few weeks ago and said "dad, now that I have boots, I need BDUs."  I couldn't resist, I ordered a pair of kid sized BDUs for him and threw on a flag and name tapes.

Here is the result: 

PS: He was watching T-Flight all night, learning to salute, and I didn't even notice he saluted until I saw the picture.  Also, today, he told me he had to shine his boots.  I love it!

How do i put an image in?

For starters, have a high enough post count to be permitted to do so.

Then the pic needs to be hosted somewhere on the web. You can't just attach it from your computer at home.

Next you click the (http://captalk.net/Themes/core/images/bbc/img.gif)icon, first one in the second row above the text box, and insert the URL for the picture location.

The code will look something like this (after you click the red A at the end of the second row of icons):

Code: [Select]
[img]http://captalk.net/Themes/core/images/bbc/img.gif[/img]

The URL goes between the tags.

I have no idea where that symbol is, but I know it was the same one on my husband's grandfathers uniform!! He was a brigadier sergeant during WWII! We have been searching for years for information about the army air force!! Can't seem to find anything out though!

Sergeant Major maybe?

That port is absolutely huge! I wish I'd been able to take the time to explore.
I saw a CG helo circling low over the marina on the way out today - then it landed at the
Air Station alongside several others.

This guy was outside my hotel the whole time I was there.

Well, sorta. I give tours, as a member, but I still do not work for the museum. If you're gonna be in town, contact me, and I'll get you on for free. Then it just costs the parking. The tour takes about 4 1/2 hours if you go everywhere that's open. You'll walk over half a mile in the process.

I know I've made this offer before.

Yes, I did, back in '08. The offer still stands.

Uh, well its in-country, Army and relatively recent (last 10 years or so) because of the ACUs. Its absolutely ridiculous for someone in the military to be that size let alone wearing the uniform and deployed. Accepting of someone like that shows a complete lack of pride and professionalism.

Nice steaks.

I was dreaming to have "pernil" or roast pig with rice and pigeon peas at a diner in Brooklyn. However found out my car's inspection sticker was expired... Too late for him to do inspection that day. That and wanting a new battery meant the car has to spend a New Years Day locked in the mechanic's garage. So I had to settle for a local dinner three blocks from home... Yellow Rice and Garlic Shrimp (4 medium ones), and a chocolate shake...

I can't say for sure until I get into a plane, but they feel like a tank, more so even then the venerable Dave Clarks.
They appear to take the term "rugged" seriously.

Passive noise cancellation seems great, they fit my huge cranium with room to spare, and the secondary
audio input seems to work fine (this will be great for everything from Tangerine Dream to more likely, monitoring a second
radio).

If they turn out to be as good as they appear to be after a flight test, we will probably buy a couple of these for the squadron
to avoid the "headset dance" every time cadets or new aircrew fly.

OK, I'll brag on myself a little. Passed my first Form 91 today, so I'm officially a Mission Pilot now. Took 16 months since I joined, of waiting for this step and then another, and then another .... but it all paid off. :)

Congrats! That's always a big milestone. And depending on your Wing's ops tempo, it can triple your time commitment! :-)

How are they? Looking foward for some still looking in the market. Like the price range. How's quality.

I can't say for sure until I get into a plane, but they feel like a tank, more so even then the venerable Dave Clarks.
They appear to take the term "rugged" seriously.

Passive noise cancellation seems great, they fit my huge cranium with room to spare, and the secondary
audio input seems to work fine (this will be great for everything from Tangerine Dream to more likely, monitoring a second
radio).

If they turn out to be as good as they appear to be after a flight test, we will probably buy a couple of these for the squadron
to avoid the "headset dance" every time cadets or new aircrew fly.

So what's the verdict on the Rugged headset?  Inquiring minds want to know.

So would I.  I had an opportunity to test them today and possibly fly the return leg
after O-rides and when I went to the spot they should have been, the cupboard was bare.

Valhalla heard the expletives, and at this point they are still AWOL.  I am hopeful they are "in a pile"
or someone in the house "put them away for me" (as people do), but as of right now, quite literally NO JOY.

!@#$%!

Eclipse, you're from Chicago?  Guess I didn't know that.

One of my favorite towns to visit (wouldn't want to live there).   Huge Blackhawks fan as well.

Saw a CAP plane flying over Mackinac Island on Monday, right around 5-:530pm ish.  Couldn't catch the tail, but was traveling roughly SE.
Wasn't able to catch a photo.

Made me wonder about the challenges specific to MIWG flying over all that water on a regular basis.

It's also the first time I realized where Drummond Island actually was (duh):

Does CAP still offer the CAP Over-Water Survival Classroom-based Course?

I think it varies by Wing, some can do it in-house and some use a contractor. I believe RI, NJ and CT requires WS cert to fly some of their overwater missions.. maybe someone there can sound off..

Last time I was at a Michigan encampment (2005), General Phelka and I took a night flight from Alpena to Mackinac Island Airport. 'Tis a magical place.

It is important to know that just to get to DeTour (where you get the ferry to DI) it's another hour+ from Mackinaw City.

It was hammered into our heads repeatedly that just to get to a hospital was an hour plus a ferry ride, minimum. At one point we were something like 8 miles (that can't be right, I don't think the island is that wide) from the nearest road, so an injured cadet would have to be carried out first... Focus, people. Focus.
