Quote from: PHall on May 06, 2020, 05:09:39 pmOne reason CAP will probably stick with black boots is cost. Coyote/Tan/Green boots are all in excess of $100.
Availability is another reason. There's a lot more police/fire uniform shops out there selling black boots then there are military clothing sales selling the Coyote/Tan/Green boots.
And we won't even discuss what Scamguard Vanguard would sell them for.

Walmart has a set of 670-1 compliant Coyote color boots for $44.23. For the limited use of CAP personnel, I could see them lasting a couple years.

From my view, seems like going with black is just because it's easy to not change.

U. G. L. Y. But I gotta tell ya, one of the most comfortable pair of boots I've worn in a long time. I'm about a year into wearing them, 3 or 4 times a week and they hold up really well. For the price, you really can't beat them, especially if you wear boots on a regular basis.

No argument there - best one by far, but it doesn't close the question at hand.

The McChord Rack Builder is helpful in showing the proper arrangement of various ribbon attachment combinations.  Especially those combinations authorized on the SAR, Find, Disaster Relief, and Lifesaving ribbons.

That's not what it says...

CAPR 39-3, Page 14:
https://www.gocivilairpatrol.com/media/cms/R039_003_83459660D4F44.pdf

"c. Air Search and Rescue Ribbon. Participate in at least 10 search and rescue sorties. A
bronze clasp is awarded for each additional 10 sorties. All sorties must be in support of an actual
search and rescue mission authorized by competent authority.

(1) Aircrew Members. A bronze three-bladed propeller device will be worn centered on
Air Search and Rescue Ribbons earned as aircrew members.


(2) Ground Personnel. Credit given will be computed on the basis of time spent on a
mission and the nature of the duties performed."


You can certainly earn the ribbon as an aircrew member without all the sorties being
in a plane.

Quote from: ßτε on May 26, 2020, 04:20:15 pmTen sorties, ground and/or air, qualifies for the basic ribbon. Once you get ten air sorties add the prop device.

If any of the ten (or additional) are an air sortie you add the "Propeller Clasp:

At sortie #20 (and for every ten thereafter) you add the standard "Triangle Ribbon Clasp":

As for any multiple awards of decorations, with the caveat that the Propeller Clasp always stays in the center.
For the SAR ribbon you need 10 aircrew sorties for the prop clasp. 
For the find ribbon you only need one.
