How about when people mizyewz English, riggardluss of weather they have any regional or international acksents or knot? That's when the real defugalties occur.

Ever meet someone who says "utilize" for "use", "leverage" for "use", "implement" for "carry out", and "regarding" for "about"?

Yep.  Cross/Com = No/Com  Gotta admit though, "defugalties" has a nice ring to it... :)  It even SOUNDS like a screw-up-in-progress.

Some defugalties even occur when native English speakers have strong regional (or international) accents.

I see what you did there!
For a minute I was actually about to go look up "defugalties" to see what it meant! LOL nice one.

I am selling a DSCP USAF or CAP Service Dress Coat (New Style) with HAP Arnold Buttons for $10 for the service dress coat and $10 for shipping. Shipping will be through USPS inside the continental United States. Cadets in Tucson (AZ Wing) can meet at a local Walmart.

This is an interesting article and research here on language (native and 2nd, phraseology, and communication).  The topic of communication/language in high risk, technically tight systems like aviation might be worthwhile for a pilot workshop, or even in a Squadron safety discussion.  Even flying here in the US I’ve encountered instances where I’ve wondered “what did [that controller, pilot, or ???] say?” as I listened to their transmission, or spoke with them in the shop.  Some defugalties even occur when native English speakers have strong regional (or international) accents.  I'm sure many of us have seen media articles that likewise discussed major miscommunications in other industries or situations.  For example miscommunications or total absence of communication between LEO's or other emergency and public safety workers, and individuals who have limited (or no) ability to speak or understand English have resulted in serious injuries and even fatalities.

Today is the second day in a row I've received a call from Office Depot offering to "assist" me setup my CAP account. The caller ID of the number is the same as the one on the Office Depot ad on the capmembers.com homepage, just different callers each day. The listing on the CAP web page:
For assistance with your business account please call:
855-337-6811 X 12897 or email: Jeremy.kirkland@officedepot.com

The caller yesterday told me that "so and so" left the company and he was just going down her list of accounts. Today's caller said he was following up from yesterday's call. I wonder if this is going to become a daily annoyance.

The calls have come to my work phone number. I have always had (and still have) the "keep my information private" box checked. Checking the box apparently means nothing.

OK guys, thanks for the answers. And in response to Spam, actually, I am 17, so I can still be a cadet, and I have already discussed with the Unit commander and they are all for having my back at the squadron, but they referred me to the online application, so I will be talking to the Unit Commander if the whole eservices thing doesn't work.

It may - MAY - be possible, once you speak with your new Commander and his/her unit Membership Board to see if they'll have you as a member again, to simply then call NHQ member services and renew with a credit card. That's only a maybe... they've been able to do surprising things before.

However, as I think you've heard here, you need to have a good answer to why you quit, before your unit agrees to let you rejoin at all.

Also, you aren't over 18 now, are you? If so, you'll be coming back in as a senior member without grade.

Good luck

The worst that can happen is you are reinstated at your last grade and have to complete the testing all over again.

Okay, the worst that can happen is actually you become a C/AB again and have to work all the way back up.

I have been out of CAP for 3 years... I am attempting to rejoin, I was eligible for my first promotion the week my membership expired, but never received the promotion.

His grade was and, and will be "cadet".

The place to have this discussion would be with the local squadron
you are hoping to rejoin.  It's not automatic. This will likely
include proving your citizenship or residency status, so be prepared to
present the appropriate documents.

With a 3-year break, you have to meet the initial eligibility requirements,
which would include at least three meetings before accepting the application.

Assuming it is accepted, once your old CAPID is active again, your CC can
see what is, or is not applicable from your previous time as a member.

See CAPR 39-2 § 6.2.1 (page 12).

I believe you'll have to submit the app via a hardcopy CAPF 15, as the online
app, as you saw, won't accept an SSN already on file.

Also, if you haven't already, you should be prepared to discuss why you left three
years ago, and what is different now.
