This belongs in messages to the Wing DCP and Wing CC, not a public forum.

Is this combination of anonymity and hearsay really necessary for this forum?

I was first hand privy to
- The commandant's incidents (we showed up to the museum and the person there was absolutely unaware we were coming, and asked us a couple questions regarding why we were there and eventually was led by another staff member to the nearest higher up, battle sims I cannot fully account for, only a side comment from one of the staff)
-Another item i was privy to was the inclusion of the coast guard memeber. I witnessed her making a phone call to a cadet's parent whilst I was in the Admin office and I had seen her around the encampment treating cadets for various injuries
-And clearly I was privy to the staff meeting, I got yelled at and cursed out.
- On the subject of the executive staff, you may ask anyone who has gone to Winter 17-18 or Summer 18 and they can tell you exactly who I am talking to regarding harshness. I also was privy to a formal complaint sent in about said executive staff member after the encmapment, I asked them about the member's suspension and he showed me the letter. And as I said before, I know and have worked with all of them personally before.
I was not privy to
- The icecream, my records come from one of the cadets in my squadron who recounted the fact that he went out for icecream (I can vouch that he is awful) and a sergeant that was line staff as well, who also went due to the fact that she had a mental break down about three times a day. She also recounted it.
In terms of your first point, I wouldn't say that involvement can really categorize it, more so I had witnessed a majority of the issues that I saw. That being said, your perfectly right, there was a lot of behind the scenes I am unaware of, and there were many more instances that undoubtedly happened and I wasn't there. For instance, the only suspensions I can 100% confirm are the exec staff because I asked one of them, and a fellow cadet got a call from the other asking her what he should do about it. I cannot confirm the encampment commanders suspension.
I appreciate your caution.

Of the rumors I've heard, the third picture that Eclipse posted, with the pleated breast pocket and the waist belt is the tunic/blouse/coat design they decided to go with.

The Woman's version will come with the upper false pocket flaps unattached so the Soldier can have them sewn on in a position appropriate their anatomy. This will help them line up their nametag, awards and decorations better than previous tunics/blouses/coats that did not have upper pockets of false flaps. This was asked for by the Female Soldiers that took part in the wear testing.

Both Barracks and Garrison Covers will be authorized and berets for everyone will be going away. (Thank God)

Enlisted Soldiers will sew their rank on their shirt sleeves and unit patches, Skill Tabs and SSI-FWTS will also be worn on the shirt shoulder sleeves by Enlisted and Officers alike.

The debate for Officer Shirts is to either pin a Rank and a Branch insignia on the shirt collars (see the female Major in Eclipse's first picture) or to add epaulets to the shirt and wear brown Rank slides (see the major in OldGuy's picture in the Pregnancy Uniform), similar to the black slides that are currently worn with the Blues and with the old Greens. This would mean they'd have two different shirts for Officers and Enlisted or Enlisted would have epaulets that were not used on their shirts.

I hope they go with the slides, they're just easier.
Psss! Similar to the Marine Corps. JUST SAYING

The Army just went to blues not that long ago.  Seriously there better ways to invest in ones time and budget.

Terrible decision, IMHO. Greens were just fine, but someone got caught up in the "good idea fairy" of uniform changes.

I already saw last night a post on social media where someone said "I wish CAP would adopt the greens; they're so classy."

I hesitated to reply with "If you want to wear them so bad, you should have enlisted."

I have enough of a problem with constant uniform changes. I have an even greater issue when non-military members begin to insert themselves into discussions on military uniforms and how they wish they got to wear them, too.

Sorry for the soap box here. This is a real peeve.
I agree

I have a friend who is a 737 captain for a US major.  A month or so back, her and her FO arrived to find their equipment was an 8 Max. Neither had flown an 8 Max, but apparently it was allowed,   so off they went.

False. I don't buy it at all.

And if true, then a VDRP is in order for their training and crew scheduling programs.

They have to have training on the type before they can operate.
