A welcome change!  Gortex parkas and cloth rank on BDU caps now approved.


New uniform changes just approved by the Air Force

The Air Force has approved the wear of the Gortex parka for CAP members.  The parka is authorized with the BDU uniform and worn with a blue embroidered device on the front tab (see attached photo). The device will be available from Vanguard shortly

The Air Force also authorized the wear of the blue embroidered grade insignia on the BDU cap for CAP senior members (photo attached). The National Board approved both of these changes in March 2006.

Cool.  Didn't see one yet in my inbox, or any mention on cap.gov, level2.cap.gov, or nationalcommander.com.  Did the email have any attachments you could post here?

I received an email notification from the Wing CC with the news.  He noted his data came from  General Pineda.

Ok, so they show the Woodland Camo, how about the BBDU's (Dark Navy Utility Uniform)? Same rules apply? I would think so, yeah?

If you're referring to grade insignia on the hat, that has been authorized since the addition of the BBDU to our uniform repertoire.   No idea about the Gortex, not even sure there is a blue Gortex parka out there (can't imagine there isn't though).

Yeah, sorry, I should have qualified that statement.

All I can find is this...

USCG Blue, looks like a much lighter shade of blue than the Dark Navy BBDU's.

Rank on hat - I wonder if USAF let us have that one since they are phasing-in the ABU next year (?)  Perhaps now folks will actually WANT to wear BDU caps over unit ballcaps...

Gore-tex Parka is a long-awaited change: who wants to wear a field-jacket anymore?

Sent on behalf of Major General Pineda:

As those of us with two little holes in our flight caps from the TPU will attest.

Different ball of wax all together.....this is USAF uniforms and therefore HAD to go through USAF channels.

The new corporate uniform did not have to go through that process and was only changed because (so I have been told) of Air Force's objections on legal grounds. (hence the US got changed to CAP and the ranks came off) (The rank looked stupid on that side anyway...it may be okay for the Navy...it just did not look Air Force enough to me  ;))

Haven't seen anything official yet but the Gortex would be a welcome and long overdue change. 

The rank on the BDU cap...eh.  Don't really care either way.  However, if they do require it, they need to put the darn thing in the correct spot, unlike the photo on cadetstuff.org.  If they can't do that correctly, I don't want it.

Define "correct spot". If NHQ sets the location as centered, 1/2" above the bill, guess what - that's the correct spot. Whether or not you agree with it is irrelevent. How anyone else does it is also irrelevent.
