My excperience with the naval cadets is also tons of improffessionalism. I've also heard the same from several others.

Saw one four-foot-something cadet salute a United States Army full bird colonel INCORRECTLY. The poor colonel had to get an army SSgt to show the young one how to correctly salute in front of his shipmates. Obviously the kid wasn't trained correctly or wasn't trained at all leading up to the event. Very sad to see from someone sporting a Navy-style uniform.


Your motivation at a young age is commendable, but these are youth organizations where kids can be as young as 12 years old or younger.  This is how people that age learn.  Being a 4 foot something kid, the kids heart was probably pounding out of his chest just seeing a colonel.   At least this kid knew to salute.   I spent over 20 years in CAP as a cadet and a senior.  I can assure you that incident is in no way isolated to the Sea Cadets.

Could your "experience" have been one of "unprofessionalism" on both sides, perhaps?

Lets at least hope they are professional enough to not compose insulting Jodie calls about CAP, right?


Mods, suggest that we nip this in the bud, before our members start trashing other organizations further.

Point taken, seeing that now is really embarassing.
