For even more enjoyment, the man in the photo is Jeff Wong, past HI Wing Commander

I hear he might have a job offer on a reality show film crew.  http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-42743829   One fiasco begets another.

[edit: sorry, Iím just repeating myself and I already know itís not going to have any effect, so I withdraw my comment]

Yep.  This thread is a dead end. The reality is that we have to go down the call list to get someone to take a mission now.  If a war starts inside our borders, few if any would answer the phone, if CAP was to call ... which they would not. LOL

This.  If it takes little time for a bad CP officer to trash the program, and it takes a good CP officer much, much longer to restore the program.  Been there, seen that.

It's never wrong to step back from a leadership role or training role for which you realize you are not fitted or for which you have insufficient time; plenty of work for everyone so no need to fear non-contributor status!

If you haven't got the time for the training then you haven't got the time for the role.  That applies to CP and everything else we do.

True.
There are also some phenomenally bad CP "leaders" with large-ish cadet squadrons.
Cleaning up after a toxic DCC is just as challenging.

A password for the Hawaii emergency agency was hiding in a public photo, written on a Post-it note

Whole fiasco is a total embarrassment.

Not really. Civil Defense (as associated with the original Office of Civilian Defense/Federal Civil Defense Administration) = Homeland Security & Emergency Management. Separate of and not equivalent to Homeland Defense and DSCA, which are military functions.

Depends upon your state hombre...
At the Federal level my statement is correct.
Homeland Defense
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homeland_defense
and
Defense Support of Civil Authorities...

Say I was digging award my squadron and subsequently found a plack that says my squadron was award a squadron of merit but on the unit colors there's a missing streamer. Is there a way I can order a stream with the corresponding year the award was giving or an I out of luck

This is the light I have settled on for just about everything.  It has a very dim moon mode that is the first setting and can be increased from there or turned off without increase.  It also has a mode that flashes the battery level.  Very handy pocket light.

I also have this one for red:

It has a separate button with a different texture for the red LED.   This is my backup light now.

Thanks for the suggestions so far. The white light comments seem to be not-to-inconsistent with what I've read, that green is a good choice because the eye is most sensitive to it, so the lowest amount of light can be used if it's green. I've also read that for red to really have a negligible effect on night vision, it would have to be so far toward the longer wavelengths that you could hardly see it.

When I read Spam's comments about pulse width modulation and cheap, the first thought that popped into my head was radio frequency interference, which we would like to avoid.
