Have been watching Ebay but since I just re-joined here after many years, I thought I'd ask if anyone has a Women's Mess Dress for sale or can direct me to where I can find one.  Thank You.

For KIDS is correct. Its on a second grade level. Our Cadets would be embarrassed by this. Who put this stuff together? Do they know we start as teens? That one item alone makes me wonder if whoever put this together knows who CAP members are.

I did. I appreciate the feedback. I thought it would be easy to understand, that's why I chose to include it. The rest of the team didn't see the same concern you have, and I'll be sure to pass it on.

This falls square into "Flat Tire"...

1 - Recognizing a tire is flat does not give one the skills, knowledge, or ability to repair it.

2 - Attempts to repair a flat tire by someone who is unqualified can result in additional damage, sometimes more serious than the flat itself.

Qualified to make that assessment, eh? I'm totally interested to hear your professional opinion on the matter. Fitness trainer? Physician? Therapist? Psychologist? What background are you calling upon to make your assessment?

We have qualified people on the team who put this together, and we're always eager to collaborate with folks who have an interest in making programs better.

Ah, I see what you mean. 

Yeah, we did have a couple of units who were using the scheduled Reservist support round robin flight from Atlanta - Charleston - Jax. They took their units to Charleston to tour the USS Yorktown, or Pcola to the Museum.  Then I heard they discontinued the weekend relo flight for reservists four years ago or so, and now our units drive.

Which isn't to say that it cant happen again. I had approval three years ago to fly a C-130 load of cadets to WPAFB to the Museum, with a one night RON, but the sticking point was the cost for billeting. Had we gotten in the 100K donation then that we got last year, it would have been a GO. Billeting was the only problem, not airlift.

Also, just thought of this; PRWG routinely flies up to events on a PR ANG C-130; I saw them a year or so ago using one.

PR ANG no longer has C-130's. They currently have a non-flying mission now.

I dunno, guys. We're flying cadets on C-130s etc. every year and have been for years.

Yes, but not airlift, only O-rides.

He does have a point.

Back in the day when dinosaurs roamed the earth and I was a cadink... we hopped on a DC ANG T-43A from Homestead ARB (it was FB back then) to Columbus AFB and finally to Laughlin AFB for the ATC Familiarization Course (ATCFC) aboard T-43A 72-0284, which later became one of the JANET Air shuttles.


Coming back, a higher-priority tasking dumped us at West Palm Beach International Airport (PBI/KPBI) and so our parents had to drove nearly 100 miles to pick us up.

Legacy C-130H2s out of Dobbins (94AW) as well as brand new HC-130J Combat King IIs (the search and rescue C-130s) out of Moody.  So, all 3 components: Reserve, Guard, and Active Duty are flying our cadets. Plus the odd helo, etc. (I almost had an MH-60G gunship last summer at encampment and will keep trying for that). I even got groups of cadets in to fly the F-22 simulators at Lockheed a few years ago.


Thing is, our CAP-USAF side... really didn't help much at all. You have to hit the phones yourself and be persistent and polite. Have your flight manifest and any waivers filled out properly and have a prioritized pax manifest with fill ins for no shows. Start working months ahead with the units. Follow up nicely with a thank you (pic, plaque, something) to show the appreciation of the cadets, and make sure you get the names of the aircrew and mention them by name in a thank you email through your Wing/CC to their (USAF) Wing/CC to get them credit. Long term, it builds a good relationship.

And these days we're happy if we can get a couple of UH-60's for O-rides at encampment.
