Does Ultrathin stock CAP and / or USCG-Aux ribbons?

Yup. The only one they don't stock right now is the new 'Blue Hornet' - aka the National Commander's Unit Citation. You will need to send 'em an NCUC ribbon for mounting. It's placed before the 'Green Weenie' (Unit Citation) but after the Certificate of Recognition for Lifesaving.

You mean the one they plagerized from the Navy Expeditionary Medal

I have some ribbons award as a member of CAP that I can not even wear on my uniform because national headquarters has disconnected the wearing of them. I don't remember the RM ever doing that with awards why do we.

^ Example?  I think if you earned it, it is allowed, or at least you wear the equivalent. 

Are you talking about old ribbons, or ribbons and awards that can no longer be earned? 

I think I remember NHQ saying years ago that if you were a member, earned an award or ribbon that is no longer awardable, you can still wear as long as you have documentation as to the award. 

Maybe I am just slow on the uptake......but sure what you mean??

You can wear the highest cadet ribbon awarded to you.  In this case, I believe it is your Cadet COP.  (Blue ribbon with prop and 3 horizontal lines on each side of it)  I got mine in January 1963 and I wear it.  When asked what it is I refer to it as my "old fart ribbon" because was discontinues in '63 or '64.

Boy, sure messed up the spelling on that!  My two fingers used to be pretty fast and accurate.

Simply a question, not trying to topic drift, but didn't Chuck post some other PDF guides elsewhere on CAP Talk?

Was looking at using them as a reference for some classes I'm teaching.

Hooah and thanks.

Quick question... I am just recently coming back into CAP as the Commander of a "rechartered" squadron (Or will be upon my return from Iraq. Civilian Firefighter there by stupidity). I was wondering if I can wear my Curry Achievement from when I was in before (I have been out for close to seven years)?

Also, is there like a service ribbon I can wear because of my time in Iraq?

Thanks

Curry: Can you document it? If so, yes, if not, no.

Special Service Ribbon: No.

Like I said, I have been out for seven years... And I have already noticed that it is not the same CAP as it was before. But change is good.

I do not have any documentation on that. The former squadron leadership dropped the bomb when it came to paperwork (That contributed to the shutdown). But I wonder, would National HQ have anything on file regarding my paperwork from then?

Only cadet milestones are tracked by NHQ, particularly back then (pre-MIMS). They might have other stuff, like join date, etc.
