I have never served in a CAP unit that had more straight civilian non-military than veterans or current service members. 

My squadron is just the opposite.  Of 10 senior members, only three are prior military.

Considering that less then 10% of the US population ever serves in the military these days. That's not that unusual or surprising.

Its actually less than 1% now... so sad

Just wish the med req's weren't so anal. Otherwise I would still be in... ::)

I've never really ran across that many prior military members in CAP when I was a cadet.  I think the most I ever saw in one place was the squadron that met near the USAF base I was assigned to.

My experience in squadrons across the country over several years as a Cadet in the 1970s then as a Senior since the early 1990s indicates that in the 1970s about half of male SM were prior military, and now about 10% SM (male and female) are prior military, with another 10% prior CAP Cadets, JROTC, CGAux, SAR Posse, etc.
