I am thinking about working with a local company to create some t-shirts for my squadron to wear with their ABUs, BDUs, and PT uniforms and I want to know if there are any guidelines I need to follow when creating these shirts other than what is found in CAPM 39-1. I have seen several examples of custom-made T-shirts for squadrons and encampments so I have a general idea of what my designs should look like.

.... and the year after a lot of CAP members assisted in their communities in Puerto Rico with shelters and with points of distribution. 


As uniformed CAP members on CAP missions ... or do you mean they learned skills so they could go volunteer at other agencies as plain clothes civilian volunteers? Which is a great and wonderful thing either way.

If it was for CAP missions, I'd like to know more about how that was done.

Check Eservices or have your PDO check. IIRC, when I submitted my Level V last year, it was through Eservices. No paper involved.

Thanks.  I've also found a list of the qualifications needed under CAPR 60-3 paragraph  2-3(f).

The one with Pluto looks like  USAF FAC patch out of the Vietnam era.

It dates from the 50's.

The summer and winter ranger courses

In Pennsylvania any of the HMRS activities lised on their calander count as sanctioned Ranger activities.  Most Wing oraganized activites outside of PA as "Ranger" trainnig count (though those I would verify with the HMRS stan/eval address before "counting it")

Now that level III has been a requirement for Captain for four years, when do you think National will make Spaatzen 1Lt's, instead of captain? or will they give them Level III?

An interesting dilemma - there's no way the average Spaatz cadet has the experience or has done the work to
pencil-whip Level III, which would also include waiving 2 conferences, which would be a very sore point
for all those who have had to endure a sleepy rubber chicken at the Airport Ramada Inn.

Even Level II at this point is a bit much.
For every Triple-Diamond that is cadet of the year, there's 10-20 who just rode the minimums and
punched their ticket, not that doing that is a small matter, but like the Eagle in the BSA, you can
quietly participate in relatively unexciting ways and get the same award.  No unit leadership roles,
no staff service (though that recently changed to a degree), just come to meetings hit 1 encampments
and a coupe of NCSAs as a participant, not staff.

A more appropriate course, considering the raised expectations, would be to confer Captain to
dark-siding cadets as a Brevet grade, with an appropriate amount of time (4 years?)to catch-up the PD
to the requisite level, dropping back to 1st Lt if they don't.  This would allow for those top-performers
to continue to contribute to the organization at their high level, while not just giving away the railroad
tracks to those who decide not to play CAP anymore.

I would also say that the dark-siding needs to be immediate, vs. lapsing membership and coming back in
5-10 years and wanting railroad tracks based on Spaatz.  An unbroken membership at least insinuate continued
participation and relatively currency in the program.

There should be no mistake that taking the time out as an adult to achieve LIII is a completely different proposition
then going to RCLS or COS, etc., as an adolescent.  Not to mention fulfilling the responsibilities of a staff
role(s) at the senior level requires more effort as an adult, and that the staff service in question
isn't even a requirement for cadets to attain Spaatz.

I've never understood why the PD level is conferred on Spaatz cadets - the grade, whatever, but
PD is supposed to be a vetted reflection of experience, and Spaatz cadets do not demonstrate that
experience through an SDA.

Leaving things as-is will also not quash the under-30 year old Lt Cols, but will potentially engender
a little hostility or jealousy from those seasoned members who worked for 15-20 years only to have the
rules changed and see Lt Col become an unattainable goal because of NSC, while those young whipper-snappers
who still have more flexibility are able to get there, and may well get preferential selection for the limited
slots because they are viewed as "the future".

I helped a Spaatz Cadet with this process last year. He turned 21 at the end of February and he submitted all of his paperwork including his senior application, fingerprint card, letter requesting LV1, LV2, Cadet Programs Senior Rating, SLS, Yeager and promotion request right away. His approved senior status (as apposed to patron status) came first in March, all of the LV1, LV2 and connected courses came in at the end of April and the promotion to Capt at the beginning of June. Hope this helps with the timeline it seems to take to get everything processed with National and through the chain of command.
