I was one of the lucky few cadets who were able to get our licenses in 4 weeks in Allentown in 1967.

I am looking to contact anyone who was among that group or can give me information/photos of the program. Just got some old photos myself and feeling nostalgic.

It seems to be getting worse. Where it would load after a few attempt, I can't get anything to load. First noticed this problem over a week ago.

I was getting ready to buy my ES patch when I saw that there was two patches, an oval one with a plane and a circle one with a dog. Which one do I get for the ABUs?

A person with two silver bars is a Flotilla Commander, not a lieutenant.  A person with eagles is (in one iteration) a vice commodore, not a captain.  And the head honcho of the organization wears three stars, but he is never called "vice admiral" - he's the National Commodore. And Bob's right ... one's office in USCGAUX does not translate into grade in CAP.

The only office in the USCGAUX that has a title is Commodore - mainly because the active duty doesn't use the title anymore, so there is no confusion.

USCGAUX insignia is based on what job you hold, and in some cases you can actually skip a level CAP uses the same system after O-5. The current Pacific Region commander was never an LTC, for example.

And there's also the note that one's office in the USCGAUX isn't always properly represented by the insignia.  For instance, if one had been at one time an elected Division Vice Commander (gold oak leaf with blue A) and, after that term was up, went back down to flotilla level to serve as an appointed staff officer (gold bar with red A), you could still wear the gold leaf and two-and-a-half stripes as long as you also wore the Past Officer device. I think.

You are correct.  I went from being a flotilla commander to being an ADSO  Same grade, but I technically should either change the "A" from blue to red or wear the past officer device.  Or just keep the service coat on - where there is no difference.

(I posted that just so everyone realizes that they really are working on a deliberative, prioritized list with real, useful products).

Me too.

Attention NHQ/IT: we need to put this high on the SCR list. The list as it currently is showing on eServices does have some pretty good candidates, but fixing a problem by which line members and commanders can't access core program documentation is a REAL, immediate problem.

The current top 10:

1. Maintenance Requests and Parts Order Tracking System
2. Maintenance data on sortie page (alert if within 10 hrs of inspection)
3. SIRS Enhancements
4. Event Admin & Encampment, Registration and Payment System
5. Stand Alone Communications ICP function
6. Pilot Records Requests (bulk downloads)
7. ICS Forms - 201,210, 211,218 (electronic)
8. IG ECIM Replacement Project (pull and store data)
9. CEAP Admin
10. High Profile Missions (ID field)

OSHKOSH, Wisconsin – More than 200 Civil Air Patrol members from across the U.S. are gathering to serve the aviation community over the next two weeks by providing support for EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, promoted as the “World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration.”

In all, 150 CAP cadets and 55 senior members will pitch in during the event, which annually draws more than 550,000 people and over 20,000 aircraft to Wittman Field, making it the busiest airport in the world for at least one week each summer.

The air show starts July 23, 2018, but the CAP members descended on the area July 16, a week earlier, and will remain through July 30, a day after the show concludes.
