The other day I was cleaning at the Squadron, searching for photo albums, and came across a box with over 100 film slides. Most were of our Squadron, but 49 of them were numbered and marked CAP Story. Looks like some kind of recruiting slideshow, I'l assuming there was a script or some kind of guide to go along with them? Take a look, and if anyone has seen these before and has any info, please post.

Actually they were used for Level I training. In the 60s and 70s.

Same here. I have a bunch that I've collected. This is a cool slide show. I'm going with an early-mid 1980's time frame. I have an AE book that has a similar design on the cover to some of the slides...

Ah, those were the days.

Garibaldi and I know at least one of those guys, Carter Jones from GAWG, on a handheld at a SAREX from back when he and I were sniveling cadets in the early 1980s. You'll find that most of those pics are taken from an old CAP Annual Report to Congress. See: http://www.capmembers.com/media/cms/1984__LoRes_2094978BEC5C5.pdf. If you go back far enough, you can get photos of all kinds of things (well, excepting for U boat kill evidence and/or any actual attacks by CAP).

You've done a really nice job with the youtube presentation - you got "skilz"!

What gave it away there, Grand Admiral Thrawn?  The pickle suits? (somewhere in a box, I have my old one which would now fit me like a hanky on Andre the Giant).

Boy, those blue epaulets and metal insignia sure look good on the blues, don't they?  Any chance of us ever getting them back?   :angel:

Sum of the parts. Hair styles, nonuniform clothing, the style of the glasses, the public television style graphics...and the pickle suits  :)

Can't be quite that old...one of those pictures with the PC are maybe mid-late 80s.

When I was still in CAP (first term, 1993-1999), my then-Sqn CC, who later became Wing CC and Region PD Officer, and is probably now retired (if he's still living), told the squadron that he brought up the subject while having coffee with then-National CC Brig Gen Richard Anderson (they were good friends).

He said that General Anderson's reply was:

"You will never get them back."

In the slides, I saw a group of cadet officers with their metal grade insignia pinned on the collars of their fatigues (grade on one side CAP on the other) instead of the embroidered insignia.  Anyone know if that was optional back then or was that just something that some people did?

At that time (prior to the mid 90's I believe), pin on cadet officer rank was standard. When or why they changed it, I don't know; maybe they were afraid some Spaatz Cadet would accidentally slit his own throat.

I've never been a member of, nor have I even visited, but several years ago I came across Sandy Springs Cadet Squadron (GA-045) through someone here on CAPTalk.

I feel like they've always had a great website filled with rich history and great content.

In the last they had a video of a local news channel piece that was done on the unit in eighties or early nineties but I can't find it anymore.

But they do have this fine tidbit that covers the units history...

Stonewall,

thanks for the kind words and nice site review - SSCS was my original unit as a cadet, and I'm currently the commander again, with Garibaldi from CT joining us as well. We've been spending a bunch of time on a revamp of our website to the new NHQ standard format, adding new Basic Cadet training slides with Wingman content, and have been slowly re-posting the historical documents. Please check it all out, at your leisure.


I should give Historian credit to LTC Berry, our long serving Balsam Award winning historian, who authored a number of our annual unit history summaries, including the one you referenced, and the news spot from 07. (He is one of our seven or so GTLs, so he's usually on the spot when we're deployed, taking pics for the summaries).


I'll see if we can get that news spot added to the historical documents (by Grabthars Hammer... the HISTORICAL DOCUMENTS).  The cadet commander GTL who was the subject has gone on to win the USCG Silver Lifesaving Medal as an AST3 rescue swimmer, and just transferred to USAF, completing PJ school this year.

That was definitely in the 1983-1984 time-frame since it has the new style corporate seal. I remember that slide deck, and may still have one around somewhere.  Good times.

If that's Brian Berry, I met up with him while a cadet in Colorado.  Small world.   ;)

That's him! We still follow his lead - SSCS has three former cadets now at USAFA. I've let him know to check this thread...

I believe he transferred to the Colorado Springs unit while at the AFA, early 80s. His whole family was in CAP in the mid 60s to the late 80s.
