In my experience, should a cadet join the Guard or the Reserve, they should immediately be transitioned to Senior Member. In all my years I've yet to meet a single "cadet" that was also a member of the Guard or Reserve that wasn't a colossal pain in the fourth point of contact.

YMMV.

Everything doesn't always have to be run up and down the chain.

All member activities must be approved by the Squadron CC, and in some wings require Wing approval.

Generally there would be no reason why typical recruiting activities would not be approved, but
just going out and hanging a shingle somewhere without approval isn't allowed.

Further to that were it to involve cadets, as they need signed F32s for anything outside a unit meeting
or O-rides at the home squadron.

As a new Asst. Recruitment and Retention Officer for my squadron, ...... regarding upcoming recruitment possibilities that I believe we should be involved in.

You see a need, run with it. Sometimes things can be done grass roots. You didn't say what types of possibilities are coming up. Some public event where you can setup a recruiting booth perhaps? Send an email to your Squadron Seniors and ask for volunteers to help you man the booth. Go for it.

OK, this one's done, at least for the time being.
Old folks - lighten up a bit.

New person - Being argumentative is not getting you anywhere. You asked, we gave answers. Like them, or don't like them, they are what they are. Work with the info, and move on.

OK, folks, let's put the swords away, and take a break. A PM has been sent, which is how this should have been handled in the first place.

-- "So someone came to you as a/RRO and asked yo about wearing an EMT badge, or you dug into regs and pamphlets looking for something, anything ambiguous just so you could ask the question?"

Why are you making assumptions?  Not the sign of a good leader.  At all.

-- "Well you got one from someone who has, and then proceeded to argue the point anyway"

I wasn't arguing the point, I was challenging your obviously uninformed responses that you pulled out of thin air (you don't seem to know that the EMT badge is an Occupational Badge, that EMT Occupational Badges are not part of the ES quals, what a Flight is).  This is why I have doubted your responses as being accurate, on-topic, and relevant to the point of where they are actually helpful.  Frankly, because of all this, I seriously doubt that you truly have ever been asked the question and able to give an appropriate answer.

Not that I don't think I can like you or trust what you have to say eventually, but so far, not impressed.  Sorry.

I was hoping for responses from those who may have previous experience with this query.

Well you got one from someone who has, and then proceeded to argue the point anyway,
explaining in the process all about government regulations and TF.

This is a subjective call of the respective member's commander.  No more, no less.
There is no more support or other verbiage anywhere in the curriculum or regs, and there
is a lot more like that within the program in total.

There's probably 100 places where something is a subjective call of a commander or
other delegated authority.  A lot of it is "inconsistent" or "unfair" depending on the viewing angle.

No consistent rule on badge currency...Opinions don't control here, manual does.

Thanks for that.  Best and most on-topic response yet.

-- "So seriously, who told you they would not approve your expired EMT?"

No one.  I'm asking because I have asked if clarification is needed for the reg as written (it could be seen as vague or it could be taken literally) and have received no response from my squadron commander who was, from last I heard two months ago, going to contact the Wing (or higher).  I was hoping for responses from those who may have previous experience with this query.
