VG has 30 days to offer the item for sale on their website or you are free to source it from wherever you want.  So far they haven't wanted to start selling t-shirts from a squadron yet.

Gonna have to drop a "cite please" here.

You're quoting very specific terms, yet nothing public has any of that verbiage or guidance, and members don't look to vendor agreements for their operational guidance, they are bound by published regulations, the totality of which in this regard, as far as I can tell, are quoted above.

We all know how often people say things because they "know" despite a reg or other document that directly conflicts with the answer.

I also grant you're just echoing what you were told, so it's not on you, regardless.

As I have already said multiple times in this thread, what I am saying is coming from my LO who is also a trademark lawyer and the verbiage is in the CAP-VG contract.  I do not have a copy of said contract so I can't cite it directly.  I trust his judgement since he actually does this for a living.  I really don't have the time to attempt to review the VG contract myself as I am sure it is buried in legalese and there are far more meaningful things to do.

Regulations  are only a part of the puzzle, along with public law and the VG contract.  The contract is the key and I'm not sure if that is a document for the masses.

To bad I can't take the command medal and with a blue and red sharpie switch the two lines

I wish my CAC ribbon had a medal.  Not only would it really stand out, but it looks good to be a 59 year old and have one of those.

I also wish they had adopted "Black Tie" as the corporate equivalent of Mess Dress, but that doesn't seem to have gotten out of committee.  I never replaced my Mess Dress after the Black & White version went out.

and I will have my Level 3 by next year ( All i need it 2 Conferences) so it looks like Level 3 is my max.

Most of the people I know are hung up on Level 3 its because of the conference attendance requirement.  It held me up for literally DECADES and I won't finish level 3 until the conference later this year, though that should only be a few months away now.

In my case Level 4 is only inputting things I have already done.  However I will have already made Major and level 4 won't get me promoted again at that point, so I will also be stuck.

No LTC for me, probably ever, as I will never make it to National for the required school.

Have you used any of your PME to get waivers? Will any of it count as NSC equivalent?

I will for Level 4, but I don't have anything good for Level 5, I didn't get that far.  And I have been around for more than long enough to have made LTC under the old system so I have no basis for complaint.  In fact, a guy I went to cadet emcampment with just got made a wing commander....

In fact, I am a strong supporter of the new system.  I always thought the levels should match up to military grades (Level 2 = O2, Level 4 =O4, etc).  At one point I was in a squadron where more than half the senior members were LTC and none of them had a Wilson.  Field Grades in CAP actually mean something now.

Hey guy,

Trying to find all the mini medals that correspond with my ribbons. On vanguard I can't find the community service mini medal does it exist? It would be a shame if it doesn't

There is no corresponding medal.  There probably should be,but remember this was originally a cadet-only award.

As always, Eclipse has summarized and put, very clearly, an interpretation of a CAP regulation.

Thank you, Eclipse.

NHQ decides it is wrong? Then add more clauses to the regulation itself. Give us the Vanguard contract as well.

 :clap:

That 5+ hour sortie flew with only two people and an auxiliary gas tank in lieu of the third?
