Any suggestions on shortening the ABU belt from Vanguard? I assumed perhaps I could shorten the length of the belt from the velcro side by cutting, sealing off by melting, and then re-sewing on velcro. On the other hand, could de-attach the metal looper, cut off desired length, and re-sew on. Any opinions on this, or further suggestions?

CAP is not a dating service.

No one implied it is.


Do cadets date each other? Yes.

Is it a good idea?  No.

Everyone's mileage varies on this.  The mileage which doesn't vary is that it isn't against regulations.  And that CAP also isn't a substitute for parenting.  As long as CAP regulations aren't being violated, parents get to make those decisions, not CAP.

He's not implying that it is against regulations, either.  Although it certainly could be in certain instances.  Ref CAPR 60-2 Para 2.2.1 and 2.


Do seniors date each other?  Yes.

Is it a good idea?  No.

Consenting adults+America+free country+free will = no one else's business.  And still not against regulations.

Again, I see no implications or hints that  it is against regulations.

For every tale of "I met my wife in CAP." you will find 10 more where the
situation ended poorly, negatively impacted good order and discipline, with
the ultimate consequences ranging from hurt feelings to former members.

Source?  Statistics to support this claim?

I think anyone would be hard pressed to come up with statistics to back up that claim.  However, much like Eclipse, I'll go with what my years of experience has shown.  Which is, for every successful CAP relationship, you'll find a significant number of utter failures.  Some of which have in fact had significant adverse effects to the unit involved.

Bottom line: I wouldn't recommend cadet dating.  And just like I think dating a co-worker is a bad idea, dating a CAP senior member can turn out badly, and make for some severe awkwardness.  But, if what's happening isn't against regs, it's really no one else's business and not for anyone to decide for another.  Remember, CAP is a volunteer organization.  Leadership should not overstep boundaries.

As a wise old sage in my chosen profession, I'm often looked to for advice on a wide variety of topics, to include workplace relationships.  And, much like CAP, where they can-and often do-end badly, my advice is always "Don't get your money and your honey from the same source."  In a CAP context, my advice to the couple in question-cadet or senior-is always "Do what you're going to do, just keep it out of my squadron."  As the unit commander, when a relationship problem from outside gets drug into the squadron, and begins to affect things like good order and discipline, or the smooth and proper functioning of the unit, then it absolutely becomes a problem for leadership to deal with.

(We all know the answer to the inevitable third question).

Hi

A cadet officer in my squadron recently encouraged us not to date other cadets because he has been there and done that and even tho they are friends now he said he doesn't recommend dating other cadets.

This got me thinking.

How many other cadets (or maybe even senior) have dated.  Is it a common occurrence?

Cadet programs and Character Development Officer Specialty track badges.

Yes.  It has an "I" and not an "O", you don't have to be an "O" to be an "I",
and being just an "I" doesn't award the badge.

What are the insignia on the pockets of the dress shirts exactly? In the picture below it is blue on the left, black/gold on the right.
