A few months ago my flight was preparing for an inspection in a classroom. The Flight Commander from our Basic Traning Flight walks into the room and says, "Hey, have any of guys seen a bunch a' basics walking around?" We all answered in the negative. He looks us up and down and says, "You guys don't look like you know what you're doing." He then exits the room. A C/A1C says as soon as the Flt/CC's out of earshot, "Says the flight commander who lost his flight. That got a good bout of laughs from the flight.

A cadet at an activity when we were crossing water. Always the gentleman, when asked who should go first across a poorly constructed bridge we created, he said, "Ladies first!" ;)

Unfortunately our C/CC is not a comedian, and isn't amused at our pranksters and comedians. One of our pranksters grabbed everybody's blues cover and one rank once... that was an interesting inspection, to say the least!

Haha, my squadron doesn't even have Spaatz insignia!

Our two best comedians are twins, they're going away soon, so we'll be desolate. Unfortunately, our C/CC sees their funning as insubordination sometimes, so... they make a joke of it!

Based on what you have posted in this thread you have made your sqdn sound like a clown colony. Yet in another thread you are asking for advice on how to motivate cadets to promote. Do you think there could be a connection???

Our squadron can get like a clown colony, on off time. We are professional when necessary. There could be a connection, yes. What specifically though. (please answer in the other thread however... this has only a little to do with favorite cadet quotes)

Conversation between a C/AB and a senior member. It is right before the PT test and the cadets are filling out the top of the paper where they put how they did on the PT test. The confused C/AB wrote 7 where it said grade.

SM: 7?
C/AB: Yeah, I'm in 7th grade.
SM: 7th grade?
C/AB: Yeah...
SM: You're a C/AB, that's your grade in CAP.
C/AB: Oh, that grade.

Her unit seems to have a local form to record CPFT results.  No mystery there.

We used to use them before the PT report in Eservices. There were 5 versions for phases and Spaatz. It's still probably on the national site.

A cadet that is still in the sq. was being asked the phonetic alphabet the first meeting I went to. So here is the dialog

Comms Officer: A?
Cadet: Alpha
Comms: Z?
Cadet: Zulu
Comms: O?
Cadet: Oboe  :clap:

He said that with a straight face and our XO of cadets just loses it. A few meetings go by and it's not brought up. I walk into the building and I hear the cadet just blurt out oboe while talking to the XO of cadets. Straight faced.

Just yesterday our commander asked our newer cadets what was the significance of 12/1.  After a long silence one of our cadets said in all seriousness.  The first day of December.  talk about a bearing breaker.

Back at OTS, one of my classmates was being grilled on the phonetic alphabet and mistakenly said "UNICORN" instead of "UNIFORM" for "U."

At NESA this year, a cadet GSAR student asked me "Sir, how is it that all you staff members always look so rested?"

Clearly, we were doing a good job of fooling them.

The moment any commander or staff member considers themselves a gatekeeper, instead of a facilitator, they have failed at their job.
I can't fix all of CAP's problems, but I can lead from the bottom by building my squadron as a center of excellence to serve as an example of what every unit can be.

C/CMSgt: Do I look like a sir?!
Basic Cadet: No ma'am!

The whole flight burst out laughing. The next morning was lots more pushups than usual. Who knows why...
