No one at our encampment did the Air Force shuffle in the mess hall. At least no one I saw.
6. You recognize cadets at any CAP event in the future.
7. You find you CAP ID number on random tshirts
8. You can meet someone you haven't seen in months and instantly be reconnected.
9.  You've done things that most teens never have and never will do.

Seriously, I bring at least two pairs to any week long event.

-When you have to stop your self from saluting random adults
-When you call your teacher ma'am
-When you always tuck in your shirt
-When you belt buckle is always right on the seem of your pants
-When you say yes to meatloaf
-When you have to stop yourself from polishing your sneakers
-When you yell 'YES SIR!' at seats when your math teacher asks you if you've done your homework

That's all I got. For now...

Hate to break it to you.. but this is real life, too. There's plenty of life lessons where "it's only the internet" came back to bite.. hard.

Memories of encampment past.

Flying to Maxwell AFB on board a C-54 Skymaster.
Housing in old VOQ right on the Maxwell AFB Flightline.
Seemingly endless drill & ceremonies in front of the hangars at Maxwell AFB.
Doing push ups and counting sand fleas in front of those same hangars.
No BDU's or fatigue uniforms, all males wore khaki's starched so stiff they would stand by themselves, tie tucked in between the 2d and 3d button on the uniform. Females wore skirts.
Going to the range and familiarization firing with the M-1 Carbine.  (Marching to and from the range of course).
Salt Tablets
mandatory breaks where everyone had lay down and elevate their feet for at least 15 minutes.
Friday Afternoon Parade (it seemed all over the base). 
Flying home in a C-47.

Depends on what you mean by north. Plenty of people I know living above the Mason-Dixon Line call their teacher ma'am or sir.

Seriously. 

If respect and common courtesy isn't enough, how about self-preservation?  Anyone who provides you a living, a service, or can potentially negatively
effect your life should always be referred to in that manner.
