Hello,

I'm having trouble finding any documentation on whether or not cadets can earn the ES badge. I've read on here that if cadets complete all the requirements of CAPP 70-3 that they can wear the badge, but I am not sure how true any of that is, as it says that completion of Professional Development Level 1 is a prerequisite for the badge.

Any help or information would be great.

Thanks,

I've gotten several in high-visibility public situations, but that's balanced by never
being pinned for a promotion, nor that I can recall, re-upping my oath.  They've all
just shown up in email unceremoniously, incl Lt Col.

Always a motivator is receiving a cert that has creases and bends in it from being shuffled around
from hand-to-hand (though now that most aren't printed by NHQ anymore, less of an issue,
or even better, has stains on it.

I once received an Exceptional Service Award standing in the hallway at region headquarters.  As in, "hey we found this in the mailbox.  Here you go. . . "

We should all strive to do better.

I can beat that........ I had my Wilson slid down the table to me by a 1st Lt squadron commander.

They didn't even fill out my Lifesaving certificates. They just handed me the blank certificate, still in the envelope it was mailed in, at a squadron meeting both times. All you can do is laugh sometimes.

A document like this, if it intends to have credibility, needs to be updated at >least< annually, if not be a living document.

Which has been noted to leadership.

I saw that and didn't think it could possibly be the current one. 

[whine and complain]
It's dated 2012, and references Win 7 and XP screen shots, Col Skinner is now "Maj Gen Skinner" (congrats!),
Keith Alexander and Kevin Wooten both retired several years ago,
the attacks cited were old or even ancient by internet standards before it was published.

Also, owing to the era it was actually drafted, social commercial media is barely even mentioned,
despite it being a significant vector of attacks today.

It contains ((*ick*)) commercials for AVG and ((*gag*)) McAfee's junkware, but no mention
of adblockers, and Windows Defender is just on a list with other AV software (because it wasn't really a thing 5+ years ago).

Yes, 60-41 exiats, and I'd linked in the OP.  It's the activity guidea that are AWOL.

It's the link at the very bottom of https://www.gocivilairpatrol.com/programs/cadets/activities/cyber.

At least you actually got it. ::)

I got my Wilson in the squadron mail.  I presented it to myself (I was squadron commander at the time) in a little ceremony right there in my own office, before anybody else arrived at the meeting.  At least a few of my CommComms and my MSA were actually presented to me.

Sheesh.

...the Wing Commander loved to visit squadrons to present awards at other times of the year.

I agree 100%, but to be fair...



...driving end-to-end, or even flying is a somewhat different proposition between MAWG and TXWG.


That's why God and NHQ invented Group Commander's

The practice at the City of L. A. has morphed into tradition.

Roll call, cops getting ready for briefing, the sergeant has a coin envelope in his hand.

“Your service pin arrived. The City thanks you. Here, catch,” as he flings it over the heads of the guys sitting in front.

It’s so ingrained that they depicted it in an episode of “Southland.”

Whether it's military, public sector, business radio, or just CAP, if you've had a need for 2-way wireless communications,
you've likely used a Motorola radio product in your day.
Thirty years in law enforcement (very briefly), fire/EMS, and CAP, I've pretty much always had a Motorola at my side.

a little tinge of nostalgia for a Startac.

I'll see your Startac and raise you an HT-220-crytsalled to CAPs old VHF freqs-sitting on my shelf.  Hasn't seen a charger in years, but just turned it on today, and got the friendly static sound those made when you first turned them on.
