Title: Stars on the Wilson and Garber Awards
Post by: shuman14 on September 22, 2020, 09:53:06 pm
Question: Are the Stars specifically for attending the USAF Schools or does attending another Services' equivalent Courses count for the Stars?

For example:

Squadron Officer School = Army Captains Career Course = Bronze Star

Air Command and General Staff College = Army Command and General Staff College = Silver Star

Air War College = Army War College = Gold Star

Thanks in advance.

Yes, only the USAF schools.  The original intent was to recognize CAP members who completed advanced USAF courses as CAP members via correspondence course.

Thank you for the quick responses. That's kinda what I thought, but I wanted to be sure.

Can you point me to a Regulation or Instruction that specifically states that?

Sure. CAPR 39-3, Section D, paras 15(D) and (E). Lists the schools by name and does not mention equivalent other service schools.
