While at a Wing Event, I saw a female cadet officer wearing a Service Cap instead of a Flight Cap.  On Vanguard, they have the male Service Caps, both Field and Company, but I haven't found the female ones.  Do you know where I could get one?  I've only seen one officer wearing the female Service Cap, but I believe it is allowed.   Thank you!

It looks like this (I think): https://www.capmembers.com/media/cms/New_Corp_Female_Service_cap_6574209B28FDF.jpg.

Yes, they are allowed for wear by female cadet officers, but are uncommon as they're a bit trickier to obtain than the male service caps.

You can find them here through AAFES: https://www.shopmyexchange.com/mobile/air-force-female-service-cap/3015864

Don't forget the accompanying hat band, found here: https://www.shopmyexchange.com/mobile/air-force-enlisted-company-grade-female-hat-band/4855821

And of course, the proper device can be found through Vanguard here: https://www.vanguardmil.com/products/civil-air-patrol-cadet-officer-service-cap-device-for-female

If you know your size for the AAFES items, you can order via phone and have it shipped to you, or if you are located by an Air Force base, stop by the exchange and pick one up. Hope that helps!

I wore a service cap for a few years and while it may look "nice", it's a bit of a hassle. Stick with the flight cap. You can zip it into your Trapper Keeper during meetings. Can't do that with the service cap.

And both are equally useless and cumbersome. 

So many cadets think that this cap is a must-have and I can't figure out why except it is another way to set them apart from others.  I have been in the Air Force for nearly 30 years and I haven't owned a service cap in at least 15 years.  The flight cap is the way to go. It is cheap, easy to care for and easy to stow when indoors.
