For years, I used the tie tac...but the tie tac kept turning and I went through several ties due to the stab wounds and the threads running.  Eventually began using the tie bar...less ties needed to be purchased :)

Hello again. I'm beginning to get a grasp on the cadets' training. However, senior training is still a little vague. Has anyone here done it? I've seen that there are different levels that must be done in sequence. However, still having trouble understanding what each level entails. One website was saying there are several Airforce classes one can take. I'm not sure if that is part of cap progression or can simply be done independently. Thank you

So first things first...

Just to the CAP Orientation Course.  That's Level 1.
Once you've got that checked out, then take a look at the paths available at that point.

I'd suggest going to a local screen printing company, like my squadron did. We had orange t-shirts made up that we wear for PT nights (as an option, not a requirement). They have the CAP seal on the front and our charter # on the back.  Screen printing is usually pretty inexpensive and you can customize it rather than buying whatever Google can find you.

Mine have the CAP seal on the front, and, in large letters, SEARCH AND RESCUE, on the back. I'm guessing they were intended as an alternate uniform item that never came to pass.

They seem inappropriate to me because, if worn "off duty", they reek of "look at me, I'm kool". YMMV.

Welcome to the Thunderdome.... er Captalk.  We're always glad to help and add a little humor.

I'm sure that's copyrighted... I call it Blood-dome.

“Save it for the Semantics Dome, E.B. White.” “Ooh, burn!”


I knew someone was going to go there. Love it.

Bible belt here:  Can confirm there's no after-school sports or even professional games scheduled on a Wednesday night.

Tie Tac.

Gentlemen always wear one, regardless of the requirement.

I must not be a gentleman, then.  ;)

Of course not - you're a freakin' Marine!

Wednesday would never work in my area. No organization even tries to compete with church night.

I guess I missed that regulation.

You did read in the new 39-1 that while you don't starch ABUs, you do starch your shorts, right?

No requirement for one over the other, so wearer's choice. Tie bars look nice when oriented properly, but are fairly prone to going crooked or lopsided. Tie tacs are less prone to going lopsided, but involve stabbing the tie, so may want to avoid if it's a nice tie.

I'm preferable to the bar. The tac used to eventually wear out my ties.
