Now I'll absolutely agree with you there.

I find the MoH videos put the session more into a "review of the video" and less a discussion. But I've seen the converse where you get some Chaplains/CDIs that do so much talking and never let it flow into a dialogue; it's a one-way lecture.

Right, and we agree on both points; there was once a young(ish) CDI that did that...   ;)....and then he realized, in about session 4, that is was waaay more fun and of far more value to his cadets to do what was actually required..... ;D

...at which point his OJT supervisor decided there was some hope for him....!

Where do they keep the bronze bust of you?  :P

Most people who purchase just the CAP polo, and have worn it for at least a year or more, likely don't have any intention at attending something outside of their home unit. That, or they have never read the regulation, and purchased what someone at their unit told them "they needed" or what they "should get."

Not to stir up that discussion but doesn't this go back to the question as to why Blues (or equivalent) are the minimum required uniform and not a field/work duty uniform? More work would expected to be conducted in the polo and fatigues than in service dress, unless you're in an admin office or career fairs every week.

NCSA reviews aren't held at the unit level. You don't have a board at your squadron.

To my undertsanding, you don't have an in-person review either. I've had several cadets attend NCSAs over the past couple of years. They sent an application with a cover letter and CAP resume, and a few letters of recommendation. They sit around and wait to get the yes or no. No phone screens that I know of.

I understand that each unit is different, but I would like to prepare for our Review Board.

What questions have you seen asked at the NCSA Review Boards?

If it is a personal thing that is your business. Why do you keep posting. 

Because folks like the one who started this thread ... start these threads with silly memes. Folks that put uniforms and appearances ahead of our missions. I get my job done. And always within regs.

Anyway there must be hundreds of CAP adults wearing the USAF uniforms against regs and never called out on by anyone in charge so it kinda makes this whole subject feel.......unserious

Exactly. Instead of coming after people like me who wear an authorized uniform properly and appropriately, how about focusing all that disdain on those who are willfully breaking the rules?

Do I have to wear a uniform?
Senior members may be required to wear a uniform during some activities - such as when flying in CAP aircraft. Senior members may wear the USAF style blue uniform or one of the distinctive CAP uniforms.  However, some members choose to serve quietly without wearing a uniform.

I've never been (or invited) to a CAP activity that called for the "minimum required uniform" where civvies wouldn't have been fine.

I'd like to know what reg says a uniform is required for anything other than flying or working with cadets- in which cases the golf shirt certainly qualifies.

Aircrew "shortages" may be temporary.   https://generalaviationnews.com/2018/01/15/development-of-autonomous-air-tanker-begins/#comment-1019372  Air tanker tactics and operational environments have many similarities to military missions.

I've only been a member a few months. I'm still waiting to get on the mailing list for the announcements that state what the uniform of the day is for particular meetings. (And I'm apt to ignore the instructions, and wear BDU instead of blues, if I'm going to be working on the radio antennas in the attic before the meeting.)
