Flag officers have a wide latitude to wear distinctive uniform combinations reserved exclusively for them. For the Air Force, this includes the following:


Hap Arnold wing and star roller belt buckle
Army officer lightweight jacket in AF blue with embroidered name and wings
Air Force general officer pistol and ceremonial pistol belt
Band weenie ceremonial dress


General officers have their own "private tailor shop" at Wright-Patterson AFB, where short-run uniform wear tests are made. Some MCSS stores at bases with a heavy GO population will include GO bus driver and bucket hats (for the females), though females can now wear the male service and flight caps.


Generals (and sometimes their staffs) will wear-test uniform proposals before rolling out to an extended wear test or all-service use.

Let us consider this closed. As noted, I did not want to get into any of the issues of who should do what. I simply wanted to be able to enhance communications. If that involves offending or stepping on toes, then let's not go there. I never expected anyone other than myself to supply anything. After 36 years of making communications work in the news biz, often on my own dime, I am more than willing to do so for CAP which, these days, is more worthy than the news biz. Case closed.

"In the case that a major disaster ever occurred in a Midwestern state in the U.S., the Fremont Municipal Airport would become a hub for emergency response communication and coordination.

Recently the Fremont Cadet Squadron headquarters at the Fremont Airport was designated one of seven major disaster Incident Command Posts for the Civil Air Patrol (CAP)."

Fremont will be the lead Incident Command Post (ICP) for any major disaster between the Canadian border to the northern Oklahoma border and between the eastern Wyoming border to the western border of Indiana.


Um...?

Lets talk some CAP Comm business.  If you have access to ORMS look up your radio, it should be listed as either a base or mobile.  If its a mobile you will need to supply the power supply, coax and antenna.  If it is listed as a base NTC will provide you with a base antenna and coax.  Any questions contact your Wing DC he can explain the process on requesting the antenna and coax.

This is exactly the way to go; I learned this lesson the hard way... Some Wings use Mobiles as bases and vice-versa. If the radio is not being used in the way intended or as listed, local units are on the hook for the extra accessories.

The military has been using DV as an acronym for over 50 years for O-6 and above. Also for E-9 and high level civilians

Joe, how dare you bring up real world mission related weather intelligence when people are bickering about a plane that most of them have never seen.....

Speak for yourself there Bucko. Speak for yourself.

That may well be true, but the official wheel exists now, so no point in using a homegrown system.
