First year with ABUs generally worn, so this year was one black and one desert tan t-shirt.

And just as NIN called it, it was pretty much 50/50, if not heavier on ABU side, even on staff.

We saw the exact same thing happen when we got the BDU's.
3 year phase in, most if not all cadets were changed over within the first year.

Yea, that's what I'm referring to.


New cadets make sense, but so many "old hands" were switched, that BDUs on staff were the rarity.

That's because ABU's are "cool", right now, and BDU's are "obsolete".

I went to the IL spring encampment as a cadet, and I had a great time. The staff and cadet staff was excellent and I think it was great expirence overall. My favorite part was listing to (I can't remember their names) but an Air Force major and CAP captain talk about her pilot expirence and his expirence as a CPD helicopter pilot. In addition in between the weekends my canteen cracked and when I came back Major Rash (forgive me if I mispelled his name) was kind enough to actually give me a canteen. I even got one of those little challenge coins from Major Pehm because he appreciated that someone from Kentucky came to the encampment. I didn't realize eclipse was their or I would have thanked him for answering my CAPtalk questions. Again great encampment, anyone who is still undecided go to the spring encampment, it's great :)

Fatigues were obsolete in 1992, and BDUs were cool.  Which was Hat's point.

Glad you had a good time. There are quite a few staff members for ILWG Spring here.
