There's an official record?

There's nothing malicious, per se, about posting grievances on here and asking how to deal with them back at the unit. That's one of the great things about this board. Just don't do it with the intent to discredit your superiors and invoke change (i.e., "stage a coup").

If there is a legitimate concern, and you want guidance on how you can address a particular situation based on the personalities described, by all means.

I will admit that I took this topic initially as a philosophical discussion on leadership styles. So is that the intent or was this to raise the "You're wrong!" army against HHQ?

I see the social media outrage on this subject...and my question is this: How does it differ from an emergency broadcast on television? The medium changed, not the practice of doing it. Nationwide broadcasting through communications technology has been used for quite some time. So this isn't anything new.

Safety, from a philosophical standpoint, is the absolute mitigation of injury or damage (i.e., doing everything you can to prevent "bad things from happening" to people and stuff").

From a practical application, it's really the balance between operational performance needs (output of affairs; productivity) and the above mitigation --- risk tolerance. Safety should be defined by an organization through a Safety Policy against a corporate vision with a list of safety objectives, requiring the dedication of resources (persons, money, equipment) to accomplish those objectives but with processes to determine where the line gets drawn (or who has the authority) to accept the risk at that measured level and continue with operations.

^ This is way more of a larger corporate overview than it is a mom-and-pop-shop safety program...but effectively, it's a "How do we not lose more but don't kill ourselves" line of questioning.

I'm kind of curious overall as to why the unit PDO is handling SUI information-gathering.

Do you have a fairly new commander as well that dropped this on you?

Back in the olden days when the earth cooled and dinosaurs roamed the earth - even before I was a cadink - there were three CAP service ribbons:

Red Service Ribbon
White Service Ribbon
Blue Service Ribbon

Each ribbon was awarded for a certain number of service hours to CAP.

There were SEVEN service ribbons. But not all were in use at once.

The WWII era service ribbons were Green, Red and Blue. The Red and Blue did not look like the later Red and Blue versions; the award criteria was also different. Therefore, they were entirely different from the later ones and should be counted separately. They were awarded for hours of service. (That’s three ribbons).

Starting in 1949, the service ribbons were Red, White and Blue. They were awarded for combinations of hours and years. The Blue and White lasted until “The Great Ribbon Purge of ‘71.” (That’s three more, total of six).

Then there was the “Silver Service Ribbon,” awarded for 25 years service. It lasted from 1967 to 1971. (And, that’s service Ribbon #7).

The only survivor is the 1949 Red Service Ribbon, which has changed in design, dropping the prop, and in criteria, being based on years and not hours.

Don't sweat the SUI. They can't dock your pay or claim your first-born.

The inspection team is there to assist the unit through the SUI process. They're not the enemy, nor do they breathe fire. Ask as many questions as you need and don't be intimidated.

You'll be an old pro the next time around.

OK - I see what they are asking.


"Does the unit ensure members do not work with cadets without first completing Cadet Protection Program Training(CPPT)?"

"Make a list of non-compliant members from LV1 report.
Using the eServices Member search ensure they are not receiving any assigned duty position in the unit, directly
supervising cadets on their own, being allowed to wear the Air Force-style CAP uniform, becoming eligible for promotion, or enrolling in AU A4/6 Courses."

The answer of course, is >always< "yes", and the system, I believe, doesn't allow a member who hasn't
completed L1 to be assigned anything, nor could they be eligible for promotion, so why that's there is beyond me.
I suppose an A4/6 could slip through, but it's not likely.

With that said, no idea where you would upload this unless your unit got a discrepancy and this is to close it.

Some wings use Dropbox to upload SUI documentation.  Maybe that's what he's thinking?
