I've never seen a Bible in any of the POW/MIA tables I've seen at multiple CAP and Air Force events I've been at.
And that goes back to the early 70's when people were still being taken prisoner by the North Vietnamese.

Man, after reading all of your, this is kinda pathetic.

Yep. Thats it. Hopefully I'll be a GTM after GSAR school this summer, and I want to be a GTL at 18. Also want to go to NBB after this year, as this summer is my first encampment.

You must either be the Communications Officer, or the Cadet Communications Officer in the squadron as assigned in EServices.

From personal experience, it is sufficient to be squadron assistant communications officer.

Or honestly anyone the Unit CC designates and approves as such.

Seriously, we're talking about a radio card here, not Communication Tower Climber.  If a wing is making
noise about "too many" or "has to be a CUL" (wow, seriously?), they need to re-evaluate priorities.

The steps are clearly laid out and simple.  Do. Click. Next problem.

Like Eclipse I have been to several but have not seen a Bible used in them.

Not that I am arguing against its inclusion. Just that in my limited experience have not seen one placed in it.

Eclipse is wrong, the placing of a bible or another religious text is still sanctioned by the USAF. http://static.e-publishing.af.mil/production/1/af_a1/publication/afpam34-1202/afpam34-1202.pdf Page 73 of AFPAM34-1202, clearly shows it is still allowed.

He never claimed otherwise. The document you cited states that it is optional and that it is a "book of faith", not a Bible.

I've seen and setup plenty of them myself and not one of them had a bible on it.

http://secure.afa.org/members/powmia.asp

Materials needed:

"POW-MIA Script
4 pair of white gloves
Wheel Caps* 
Music AMAZING GRACE
Tape player 
White tablecloth 
White candle
Small bread plate 
Yellow ribbon
Black ribbon (tied to candle) 
Framed, faded picture
Red rose in a vase 
4 Wineglasses
Salt 
4 Table settings
Slice of lemon
Lighter or Matches

*Caps for Air Force, Army, Navy, Marine Corps (and Coast Guard if that branch is to be honored)


This was not a ceremony, it is a static display.  Everything on the table is a symbol for something.  If you read the article that is explained.  They could have used any other religious text but since the majority of those in the military expressing a religious preference are still Christian it makes sense to use a Bible instead of any other text.  I would say that over half (if not more) of the static memorial tables that I have seen have the Bible on it.  I never thought anything of it, just like I don't think anything of it when it isn't there.

Correct! You must be qualified in ICUT, be a qualified SET, and hold a Communications Staff position to be SET qualified in ICUT. CAPR 100-1 and the paragraph mentioned previously covers this.

What exactly counts as being a "member of the communications staff"?
