This would be grounds for a legitimate, sustainable complaint.

When a cadet has completed all the requirements for a promotion, you promote them, or follow the regs
related to what you do when you don't.

Mom needs to be calling the CC, and absent a reasonable response, moving up the chain.

Cadets are perishable, from both a time perspective and their initiative.  If you don't treat them fairly,
they will leave, either the unit, or CAP altogether.

With that said, do you mean "60 days past his being eligible" or "60 days since his last promotion",
the latter is less troubling, though still unnecessary.

We only pin once a month, but our cadets date of record is the day they completed the requirements,
not pinning day.

Typo catch:
"2.6.2.1. Monitoring Weather Conditions. When cadet activities take place outside a military installation and temperatures are forecast to be below 45O F [sic], commanders and activity directors will monitor the wind chill temperature at least every 3 hours".

Awesome. At 450 degrees Farenheit, at least the injury forms we're filling out won't ignite.   >:D



"2.6.2.4. Winter Camping. Camping in conditions where the temperature may fall below 30OF may be conducted only as a high adventure activity (HAA, see 2.9 below) and in accordance with Table 2.3. The HAA proposal must describe plans for warming cadets, dealing with wet conditions, and evacuation to indoor facilities".

On a more serious note, I'm reviewing two submitted plans for exercises/FTXs in the February time frame, and they'll have to comply with this section (which is good, thinking ahead...). Y'all don't let this sneak up on you, read the new reg and get your HAA request in. The new HAA form isn't yet available, but we can start that process at least.

The Wright Brothers certificate is generated on Eservices, CAP Awards module. It is printed by the unit.

Also, it has been that way for over 5 years that I know of so it should not be a shock to the unit.

Cadet promotions should be done in a timely manner and 60 days does not equal that.  Also, the promotion can be back dated in eServices to the earliest date that the cadet met all promotion requirements. 

What is the reason given by squadron leadership that this cadet is not being promoted?  If all of the requirements have been met then a review board should have been held in a timely manner and the cadet is either promoted or told why, in writing, why the promotion was not approved.

If a cadet has completed all requirements for promotion, passed drill test, pt, aced both exams, mentors new cadets, is one of the few active cadets and attends all events as well as wing events when they can afford to, how long can the Cadet Senior Commander delay hitting the promotion button in e services. It is after sixty days and the cadet was advised they did not need to do a pass and review because of their active involvement. 

This question has been brushed off by local chain of command.  The senior commander is also insisting the Wright Brothers certificate comes from National headquarters when it clearly states the squadron prints from eservices in CAP documentation.   I have searched the CAP manuals I have downloaded and can find nothing on pending promotions.

I am not the cadet but am an advocate on their behalf.  The cadet worked very hard to make Technical Sergeant before the Encampment Staff deadline.  Is there any written policy that more clearly defines this situation.

If you are in a flight suit, make the effort to wear something that looks like a boot. 

If you are in a flight suit, wear boots, not something that "looks like a boot." That's the regulation. That's the requirement.

If someone doesn't want to wear boots, they need to wear a different uniform. If they can't get over that, go serve in another organization that has standards you prefer.

Unless you're in the CFDU...

The first year we did pay some travel expenses for cadets going between states.   We also had enough money to make partial payments to some repeat attendees.

But happily, the program is so successful in helping first-year cadets, that lower priority cadets (like repeat attendees) are much less likely to receive funding going forward.  It is still worth applying for repeat attendees, but we will only release funds once we know that all of the first-year cadets are funded.

In some cases, CEAP may help with travel expenses.

CEAP I don't think would cover travel expenses since it disburses directly to the wing rather then the cadets and it also goes first to first-time attendees. Ned I think would have the stats on how many 2nd time+ cadets that get it but I would imagine its pretty low.

Not sure where I pulled that from - I would swear at least the first year we had a couple cadets who told us they got travel expenses as well, maybe
I confused the USAF per-diem rate they use to calc the reimbursement with "travel".
