I've heard that there is a cord cadets can wear if they have above a certain GPA in school. Is that true?

Yes, if it's awarded the criteria is local, and there's usually a supplement or OI, etc., that indicates
requirements, ask at your unit, or possibly your Wing's CAC.

A Wing Commander could authorize this with a supplement; however, this is not a National-level thing.

For example, OHWG does not authorize a cord for GPA.

How would one propose such a thing as a cadet?

The best way is to take the idea to your squadron's Cadet Advisory Council representative and ask them to submit it through the CAC. If your squadron doesn't have a CAC rep, then now is a great time to get involved.

If it does not exist in your wing, group, or even squadron, the best channel is through CAC.  Remember that something like that may be authorized in OHWG, but if you go somewhere like NVWG, it will not be authorized to wear it and must take it off.

Not to divert the topic too much...

How would we consider that playing out at, say, a Region Conference?

If Wing A permits it, but Wing B does not have such a supplement, and Wing B is hosted cadets from Wing A, can the cadets from Wing A wear the cord? This could be applicable to wearing Blues at Encampment as well.

You're still technically a cadet in that Wing, per your membership affiliation. So if the supplement does not say "Within the Wing only" or some variation.... You see what I'm asking at this point.

Regardless of what a supplement says, the uniform manual specifically states:

Quote from: CAPM 39-1 (9.4)

Wing/region approved items will be worn only within the boundaries of the authorizing commander.

Works for me. Kudos.

I knew it was out there somewhere, but I'm laptopping from my actual lap and I'm horrible without a mouse to look it up.
