(I really wish some official guidance would start coming down the pipeline!)

You're saying the score is missing or the actual fact that you passed the evaluations?

Assuming it's the latter, it's hard to say how the promotion was approved without the Drill & PT being in there,
assuming you weren't part of the PT Beta, there's no need for it to be in your file - you're well
past those grades, and they won't likely be in your file as there's no reason to retain that info.

If it's the former, as I recall, the actual score is not required, only passed checked.

If you feel the need to keep everything, scan it and store in in Google Docs.

The trees you save will thank you.

Sorry, I must not have been as clear as I wanted to be. A cadet can earn a Technician rating, in the Communications Specialty Track. It is documented via a Form 2A. It is only done in paper - unfortunately - and is the only one that I am aware of that is carried through when that cadet becomes a Senior Member. My reference is pamphlet 214.

The completion certificate for Mission Scanner, and all the rest of the ES quals
says "Specialty Qualification Card" on the second line.

If you're an adult member, it's also required to have a photo on it.

I would keep your own file. Get a nice size binder and every test you take, print the certificate or 2a that is signed, put in there. My squadron commander keeps no paper records. If you see a drill test or something missing in your promotion track report, ask your commander to put it in. Make sure you keep track of the dates you do things. There is a nice paper form you can print out from the website.

It would probably help if more people actually got feedback from our actual clients.

Last week when we had completed four hours of PAR approaches for Army ATC trainees, we let them know that was our last one for the day and we were headed back to home base.  I wish I had been recording their transmitted reply, as they were over the board happy and thankful that we had been there to help them train. You could hear the happiness in their voices (more than one chimed in) and they were truly appreciative.

That meant more to me than any slap on the back from a Commander, or any award or ribbon etc. I could ever receive.  Its nice to know we made a difference that day in someones' lives.

As long as I get that occasionally, I can put up with a lot in other phases of CAP.  :)

Hey all!

I've been trying to get all of my CAP records together for my own personal records (inspired by the fact I'm the new C/Personnel Officer, so I need to learn about member records and such), and have noticed some potential issues on my cadet track report.  For achievement 5 and 6 in my records, the report I downloaded from eServices shows no completion of either PT or Drill for either promotion,  despite the fact I took these tests and got promoted  :o

How should I address this?  I must say I'm a little confused....

Should I request to see my personnel file? (Per CAPR 39-2: Members should be granted regular access to their records at
reasonable times during normal unit meetings, in addition to such other times as may be agreed
to between the member and the recordís custodian.

I'm not sure if the missing info would be in there; I've never seen my PIF to be honest.  On a side note, I would be interested to see what is in fact in there!

Guidance would be most appreciated.  I will hopefully get a chance to discuss this with my chain of command at my next meeting. :)

I wasn't confusing them, I was just wondering how the ribbon stacking differs between the two. (If at all) Also, what is the difference between Class A and B uniforms and the differences between them?

No worries. It wasn't an accusation, just a reminder.

Class A = Service Dress (blues with the service coat - "dress blues")

Class B = Service Uniform (short sleeve or long sleeve blues without the service coat)

^ CAP/Air Force variations at least.
Each military branch has their own distinction for Class X service uniforms (some have a C...some have summer/winter/tropical variations...I'm partial to service khakis myself  ;D).

So the ribbon stacking doesn't differ between Class A and Class B?

Ribbons are mandatory on the Class A service coat. They are optional on the Class B shirt.

If you wear ribbons on Class As, you can short-stack it. If you wear ribbons on Class Bs, you can short-stack it.

If you choose to wear Class As, you must wear ribbons on the service coat. I recommend not wearing them underneath on the shirt.

If you choose to wear Class Bs, you can go without ribbons. If you choose to go with ribbons, you can wear all, or short-stack.

The only ribbons you can decide to take off, when short-stacking, are your Cadet Program achievement ribbons (Curry, Feik, Mitchell, etc.). The "CAP Achievement Award" is an award, not a Cadet Program achievement. So you must wear everything else if you choose to short-stack; only remove the Cadet Program achievements below your highest rank. If you earned any devices (subsequent awards, etc.), then you must wear those on the ribbon... now, who's really going to know that you earned two versus one? Nobody, really. But Integrity is a Core Value. Remember that.

If you wear the service coat, and the collar lapel covers the ribbons, they align to the right when stacked (and as Jester said, you can wear a row of 4 instead of 3; I prefer 3 myself). If you are wearing the service coat, and the lapel does not cover the ribbons, then you center the top ribbons. If you wear Class Bs, center the ribbons.

Again, my preference is to not wear any. That's your call. if you wear them, I would suggest you short-stack, just because the more stuff you have on, the more there is to go haywire. But that's just me. You do you.

Well, I just did a reasonably detailed look at my own record, and all I can seem to find is my First Joined date, but not labeled as such. There also used to be a Last Joined Date in the system, which was when I rejoined after a six year lapse. I will continue to look, when I have a bit more time, and see where that date is now located.

My Red Service ribbon is up to date, because I have documentation of all my years of paid membership. I will be providing ths when I apply for my 50 year membership is about a year and a half.
