It would appear that the incident(s) occurred while both parties were cadets, which would put the male at age 20 or younger.

The only silver lining in this cloud is the decisive action taken by the officer reporting the situation.

I've been in for a little over 2 1/2 years.  Although we have 35ish dues paying Seniors on the roll, I've never laid eyes on at least a third of them. Not sure why they keep paying dues. I guess folks think they may want to drop back in, when they aren't so busy, but a month turns into a year, and then five years ...

What happened to the effort to normalize the memberships by putting people in proper categories and removing inactive members from manpower reports?

It's definitely on the front burner, it sounds as though a number of categories are going to get whacked.

The primary reason we have a full set of corporate uniforms is because the AF holds us to the same height/weight/grooming restrictions they hold themselves to (plus some slack.)  The only difference is they kick out even career-oriented members who do not meet their standards while we allow them to continue serving, as we always have.

Its my understanding that the USAF no longer has a height/weight standard.

There is a waist measurement as part of their PFT scoring (with an "abdominal circumference" measurement > 39 garnering you ZERO points for the PT test), and there is a "you must be as tall as Tooey's finger to enlist" sort of height/weight thing.

Correct there is no more H/W for the AF.  It's a PT test and 4 failures in 2 years and you are out.... 

There is a H/W for entry but once you are in and complete BMT and Tech School it no longer applies..

    Another reason we have to fight the bad image we get for circumstances like this. Sorry for the cadet and her family.

Define "proper categories"

Define "inactive members"

Seniors have no need to wear USAF uniforms. No blues. No ABUs. No OCPs.

Except for the fact that we're in the Air Force Auxiliary?

Yes, the civilian auxiliary. Repeat civilian. Just like the civilian VFW, which wears street clothes with a Blazer and a hat. I think that would be a viable model for our adult members... AF style for cadets.

So it's important for 1/2 the adults then (probably less)?

It's nice to see the number(s) inching up, but unvetted they don't mean much other then
more checks.

There does seem to have been a surge, especially with cadets, in my AOR during the last CY,
and especially the last couple quarters - we had a LOT of really new cadets at encampment this year.
