105,941 posts in the Uniform Forum. More than any other.  Obviously it's what is most important to so many CAP members. How many members would we lose if we just went to jeans and a t-shirt, and concentrated on the missions instead? Sad to think of what the number would be. To each his own.

I've found that once you get to section chief and above, 'they' rarely let you play in the field or in the air...

I bring a polo, tablet, and clipboard.

The Air Force has been working on a replacement for the current Mc Peak Special Service Dress Uniform for over 10 years now.
The Army changing their uniform won't make the slightest differance at all.

Chief Wright has been quoted as recently as Aug that they are working on a
new service uniform and that he favors the traditional styles.

Conjecture is piloting in 2019.  Considering how fast he moved on the OCPs,
it's highly likely.

Chief Wright's predecessor and his predecessor both said that too. There were threads here on CAP Talk about the "new" uniforms too.
Will believe it when I see it because they (they being the HAF Uniform folks) have said many more times then once that the new uniform is just around the corner.
Must be a really long block!

^ That would basically be the 4-pocket "I Dream of Jeannie" style still worn by CAP and USAFA cadets still wear.....

I remember that one, wore it while in the Air Force. (It was actually phased out about a month and half before I left the Air Force.)

I was thinking Lemay had designed one of his own. Was wondering why nothing different was coming up.

At least the Air Force is looking at ditching the McPeak design. Never liked it. I am very glad that someone wants to get rid of it.

I'm qualified in mission base, aircrew, and ground qualifications; so if I were to arrive with equipment for every specialty, I would need a MUCH larger vehicle.

I suppose it depends what qualifications exactly; but I think the last exercise I wore my ABUs, had my 24 hour ground team bag, plus my headset and iPad kneeboard (for Foreflight). I think I had everything necessary for GTM3/UDF/MS/MSA/MRO other than equipment I'd expect to get issued (like DF).

I believe I've had access in the past to approve/deny applications; however, that's really not a role for a CDC anyway.

The Unit Commander needs access for every function of every member in his/her unit; but deputies, not necessarily.

This is a Personnel function.

Just doing what's asked of me; but hey, if you'd like to come join our unit's recruiting effort and get us a Personnel Officer... I'd appreciate it!

Wonderful uniform with such great historical connotation. Blues as a service uniform for the army puzzled me; I understand the tenuous connection to cavalry and all, but blue always seemed more associated with every other branch to me than the army.

You’re right that the Air Force and, by ripple effect, CAP, should not be going this direction. If the army’s glory days were beating Hitler, the Air Force’s were keeping the Russian bear at bay for a half century. Cold War-style, Curtis LeMay blues are what the Air Force belongs in.

Very tenuous connections. A white shirt ruined that. If they'd gone with a royal blue shirt, and flipped the stripes (as tested,) the Army would have had a much closer connection.

Don't recall what the Lemay uniform design was, at the moment. Probably pretty classy too, I would imagine.
