Quote from: Chappie on October 14, 2018, 01:53:33 amAs of May I put on a beard -- had one for 20 years prior to joining CAP in 1996 -- and have thoroughly enjoyed wearing the corporate uniforms. Don't miss wearing the USAF-style at all.
Quote from: MSG Mac on October 14, 2018, 01:39:16 amIf you've been to a Uniform store. $32.80 is reasonable. Military Officers can pay up $40-80 for a pair of boards with embroidered grade. Cadet shoulder boards do cost a lot. I wouldn't be disappointed if CAP changed to cadet hard rank worn on the epaulet.

Quote from: Gunsotsu on October 14, 2018, 05:06:20 amBecause cosplaying as USAF does nothing but alienate those that choose not to or can not wear them. It works for recruiting cadets, but the type of adult that wants to join so they can wear the same duds as Ma Blue aren't the kind of people this organization needs. Furthermore, wearing USAF frocks does nothing to advance the three missions, and in the ES realm, it hinders it. You say radical. I say with 30 years around this organization, it's long overdue.
Quote from: HandsomeWalt_USMC on October 15, 2018, 12:06:11 amI'll bite. I had an idea recently based on a new trinket I was given at work. All of us who have served in the military were given an American flag citation bar (like an enamel ribbon) with our service and veteran on it. For instance, mine has USMC Veteran. I think some sort of CAP ribbon for members who have served in the military should be available, one that they can wear on corporate uniforms or in lieu of wearing military ribbons on USAF style uniforms. My idea would be for a new ribbon design, not service specific. Call it the CAP Military Service Award or something like that. It would greatly reduce the amount of clutter for many of us (with my CAP and mil ribbons together I have 19 as a 2ndLt) and provide a little something to recognize the service of our members who wear corporate uniforms. Thoughts?
