Bullying which usually includes some type of assault or harrasement, which are both crimes..  File a police report start the trail.


maybe.  OP has not provided details sufficient to made an informed judgment.  The best advice I've seen is discuss it with the DCC or CC.

Immediately contact your Deputy Commander for Cadets.
If you cannot contact the DCC, contact the Squadron Commander.
Are your parents engaged?

I am a C/SSgt in the Oregon Wing. We have this C/Sra soon to be C/SSgt and he is bullying me. I told our cadet commanders what will happen to the bully.

I advise folks to take the IS and then ICS courses as time/experience permits... these are updated more frequently than out task guides and are what the ‘rest of the world’ use.
That is exactly what we are doing. Just odd.

No, I am not OK with a minor being constantly bullied. But being a retired public school teacher I have learned that what minors call bullying is not. Minors sometimes are known to misidentify what does bullying consist. As Cicero claims, it can be investigated at the local level without calling the police.

And remember that in most states, like New York, teachers are child abuse mandated reporters. And are trained in spotting so.

You know I could have called bs and said it's not.  I didn't and chose to give the benefit of the doubt that everyone cries about. 

If there is assault or harrasement then a police report is the way to go.  The advice doesn't have to be taken but it's bunk and foul to say what was said. 

I can tell you as a former cop that documentation goes a long way in dealing with things especially bullying.  I can tell you as the parent of a bullied child I dealt with it and it stopped.

My advice was sound, just and approppriate.  You don't have to like it or agree with it it wasn't given to either of you.

Absolutely!!

I advise folks to take the IS and then ICS courses as time/experience permits... these are updated more frequently than out task guides and are what the ‘rest of the world’ use.

While we are being held to a 15 y/o task guide and must train/certify our Members to it, the rest of the world marches on.

Indeed, but CAP is not there yet - our task guides are well out of date

I've also been made aware that there are no further volumes. More were planned, but just the one was published.
There have been a few changes since 2003!
That makes training for new folks a challenge, no?

I did some searching for the actual report. Its a the bottom of the article.

https://taskandpurpose.com/hawaii-missile-alert-preparedness-report/

Not just from a Missile attack perspective, but in a general emergency management all  hazards preparedness stand point, things look a little iffy in the event of a disaster.

Things I found interesting.

Over 90% of goods are imported. Mostly by sea and the ship time is around a week and pretty much  to only one port with no real back up option.

Really only one main/major airport.  3 days without service to do major repars

1 week or less of food.  No emergency ration stockpile

Inadequate shelters to support volume and none are equipped with emergency supplies.

Only about 200 open hospital bed space available at any given time (not at one hospital) with only 72 hours worth of supplies on hand

There was more, but those things really stood out.

I imagine the military would be the primary back up plan for food, water, medical and ports/airport.  Not counting the Nuke option, any disaster that hits sounds like it would make Puerto Rico look minor and that's just in that impact to 72 hours for FEMA to make their presence known.  The long term would be really interesting as well.

Abd, that was mean!

He never, but never said for it to continue!

I guess you are the kind of guy that would go directly to the Centers of Disease Control when a visit to your doctor would suffice.

I was hardly mean..  I can be mean if you would like.  Cicero was out of line and called on it.  Unlike many here I have a thick skin and don't take every little slight or barb and cry "violates our core value of respect". 

Police action is a very suitable action and sound advice.  I never once stated or inferred what the alternative was.   

Maybe you Luis are ok with someone especially a minor being consistantly bullied and let it progress but I am not.

I see this as both a plus and a minus. Good if weather is a problem in your area and bad if you can't use the incentive of having a test for each achievement. Are we going to have cadets showing up only once every 6 months for a PT test?

I printed out the new Cadet Physical Fitness Training Data Input Worksheet for the first time a few days ago. Whoever designed the form doesn't seem to know that HFZ is required for the Wright Brothers Achievement.
If that is all they are showing up for.....then no they are not going to get promoted.  Active Participation in regular activities is still required for advancement.
I had a cadet who thought if they just showed up once a month (on testing night) then I would just rubber stamp their promotion to C/CMSgt.     When instead I gave him a F50 spelling out why I was not going to promote him and what he needed to do to get promoted.  He quit (After his mother complained to the IG and he told her the complaint had no merit).

Just out of curiosity, did the F50 spell out what he would need to do to get the promotion?  Maybe something along the lines of "attend 3 of the next 4 meetings and your promotion will be awarded?"  Was there a conversation with the mother before her IG complaint?
That was exactly what it said.   And there was a conversation with the cadet before the IG complaint.  The mother made no effort to contact me about the issue.

The crap we have to deal with when it comes to today's parents....
