Quote from: Hawk200 on October 14, 2018, 10:54:31 pmWasn't really looking to create any heated discussion, just wondering what people would like to see done for our uniforms. So far, nothing really concrete. Looking for the ideas. What would you change? Add? Remove? CAP is probably always going to have a couple different uniform categories (by which, I mean those meeting weight/grooming standards, and those who don't). When it comes to uniforms, what are people interested in seeing done? If you've already posted, I know your thoughts, I'll add them to list that I consolidate. Anything else? Hard to believe that there isn't a patch, or a badge, or a uniform, or modifications that people wouldn't want to see.

Quote from: CAP9907 on October 15, 2018, 01:59:30 amElimination of all USAF style uniforms for seniors. ALL OF THEM. Adoption of USAF uniform by cadets within two years of USAF change. credit: Gunsotsu
Quote from: hfriday on October 15, 2018, 02:44:14 pmAs a veteran myself, I'd prefer to keep the ABU, if only because I find it comfortable and don't like looking during a SAR mission like I got lost looking for the 19th hole. The fact that I have so darn much MONEY tied up in my two ABUs is certainly another reason to want to keep them in circulation.
Quote from: Stonewall on October 15, 2018, 02:17:35 pmHey, I proposed this idea for ALL members back in 2007. Identical cut to ACU/OCP, but distinctive and functional. Problem solved, problem staying solved.But again, I think all AF uniforms for all CAP members should be authorized, regardless of size, weight, and facial hair.
Quote from: jb512 on October 16, 2018, 01:06:52 amCan we ask to have them turn down the brightness on the ABU NCO insignia? Keep the navy blue background but make the stripes dark grey or tan.

Quote from: HandsomeWalt_USMC on October 15, 2018, 12:06:11 amI'll bite. I had an idea recently based on a new trinket I was given at work. All of us who have served in the military were given an American flag citation bar (like an enamel ribbon) with our service and veteran on it. For instance, mine has USMC Veteran. I think some sort of CAP ribbon for members who have served in the military should be available, one that they can wear on corporate uniforms or in lieu of wearing military ribbons on USAF style uniforms. My idea would be for a new ribbon design, not service specific. Call it the CAP Military Service Award or something like that. It would greatly reduce the amount of clutter for many of us (with my CAP and mil ribbons together I have 19 as a 2ndLt) and provide a little something to recognize the service of our members who wear corporate uniforms. Thoughts?
Quote from: Eclipse on October 15, 2018, 02:13:14 pmHawk, the reality is that threads like these are pointless, because there is too much broken with the multiformto have any coherent basis to start.There isn't a single garment, insignia, or wear policy which isn't literally defective, and that doesn't include or address when people willfully disobey or ignore the regs, and when leaders fail to enforce them.The same things have been broken for 20 years, countless hours have been spent both solicited and unsolicitedproviding corrections to typos and omissions, as well as suggesting reasonable fixes for more "complex" problems, and for the most part they are largely ignored.
Quote from: arajca on October 15, 2018, 02:15:57 pmReplace GTM badges with Ground Forces badge or expand to cover more than just SAR based ground teams.Add Incident staff badge.BTW, both of these have been sent up already. Not which black hole they got sucked into since there no requirement for higher levels to update submitters on status of suggestions/ideas.
