I was able to buy almost enough ribbons at the BX today for our cadets who will receive this. $1.00 each versus $1.40 from Vanguard. I found that I had a couple still in the package from when I was on active duty (probably from the mid-80s). At that time they were 20 cents each.

Veterans can also order them online for that price through shopmyexchange if you’re signed up and so inclined.

Yeah, what was that First Core Value? Oh yeah, Integrity First!  But, I guess it's good to be the Queen. :clap:

Do you come here purely to sh#tpost and rant? None of what you posted makes any sense at all.
You sound like a lunatic.
If the USAF desires to recognize CAP, they can - this is a very appropriate means to do it.
If a Service Secretary desires to issue ... say the Boy Scouts an award, they sure can.
CAP is a part of the USAF, they spend quite a bit of a stretched budget upon CAP... if the USAF Staff wants to dole out some awards?
They can absolutely do that.

I don't see the hub-bub with this award. I have several AF unit awards so this just seems "eh" to me.  If I was eligible cool, if not, that's cool too.

The hub-bub is that for years many members especially a few on this board have cried and moaned about not having a better relationship with the USAF. Then when the AF modified "Total Force" to include CAP they were thrilled and then moaned again because it didn't entail what they thought it would.

Now you have the AF awarding this award to CAP and you have folks moaning because it can't be worn on corp uniforms.  It can be worn on AF style but not corp so enter the whole "Class" crying about that and that it took forever for NHQ to decide the criteria for wear. 

They AF has recognized and given CAP major kudos with these events but you still have folks who think that being in CAP should grant you the same benefits as actually being in the military.

It's akin to giving an inch and they want a foot and etc..

Only if they issued a waiver to the AFI, which they can do if they wish. I can only go by what is published in the AFI.

Careful you might offend someone's sensibilities with talking about abiding by regs.   >:D

Some replies in this thread reminded me of a quote from Tony Soprano: "She's like a woman with a Virginia Ham under her arm, crying the blues because she has no bread."

Maybe those of us who are fat/fuzzy should copy some Spaatzen with their diamonds. Wear it hidden on the back of a lapel or elsewhere on our spiffy white shirt. I'm thinking of maybe under the pocket flap?

Hey, the lapel pin, depending on type of pin on the back, would be easier to conceal under the pocket of my corp. aviator shirt.

If "the ribbon" is prohibited on all corp. uniforms how can the lapel pin be worn on the on the corp blazer with nameplate and corp seal since that would make it a corp. uniform. I guess the poo bahs figure it will be so small no one will notice. What a cluster.   :o  ::) ::)

You are allowed one "pin" on the corporate uniform for the lapel.

39-1 Section 4.2.3.3

4.2.3.3. Lapel Pins. One lapel pin of choice, in good taste, may be worn on either the left or
the right lapel of the blazer at the discretion of the member.

Let's see now - we've had information, confrontation, humour, flames, an intermission, and a final act. It is now time to bring down the curtain on this.
