I may be wrong here, but only if they don't meet height/weight standards. Cadets are required to wear the USAF style uniform unless they're overweight and even then must still adhere to grooming standards.

And over 18

We shouldn't have fatties training future airmen, either.

I guess it’s a good thing then that they’re training future leaders for all walks of life, not just military leaders. After all, our cadets of all shapes and sizes go on to do great things in just about every field.

Looks like this is one situation that would allow cadets (aged 18+) to wear a miniature medal.  Right?

You've been around here long enough to know at least 5 or 6 folks would pick up the gauntlet... >:D

Truth.

But cadets can't wear mess dress.  And seniors can't wear semi - formal. So its not really an "alternative" uniform for either membership category.

@#$%. I meant USAF-style semi-formal.

I have a copy of every version of CAPM 39-1, and there are zero occurrences of spaced ribbons. That's all the way back to 1961.

Good advice. I can second the Oregon Aero recommendation - they are top quality. I got one 20 years ago and it's still going strong.

Here is the (somewhat thinner, cheaper, just as comfortable) cushion I use now - until 31 Dec, they are $30 for two at Costco ($33 if you have it shipped.)

One is in the car and used in the plane, and the other one is on my desk chair at home. (These are perfect for those of us who don't have much built-in cushion.)

I think the standards DO need to be raised. You see all of these fat-bodied cadets walking around in their utilities looking horrible as hell when we need to follow the weight standards just as much as active-duty airmen do. If we are representing something bigger than all of us, then we should represent the USAF in a fashionable manner.

I'm talking to you FLT COMs and FLT SGTs too. We shouldn't have fatties training future airmen, either.

According to your signature you're also the Recruiting and Retention NCO for your unit.
Must be pretty hard to do when you bad mouth the people you recruited on the internet.
