Anybody think a designation for "Senior member" would be required, or should I just put name and wings on the tag, and be quiet about it? (Just sew the rank on later when I get it back.)

Since cadets have to put "Cadet" on the tag, shouldn't be too much confusion if rank isn't on the tag.

Wouldn't want to have to get a tag, and then replace it within a few months.

I'll dig in 39-1, but was curious as to thoughts on it.

There isn't an option to put "Senior Member" on the new cloth tags, so go with the regs for an Officer and just get wings and name, and sew the officer rank on once it's official. How long were you out? Does your professional development match your previous rank, if so it shouldn't take long to get it back.

Been eight years. Was a Major. Have Level 3 at the time. I think you have to have Level 4 now. I had one thing to do for Level 4 then, but don't know what's needed now. If I can just complete requirement, I'll finish it, and hopefully be able to get Major back.

As to the tag, thanks for the info on that. I'll order one in a few weeks. Would like to get back in the air as soon as I can. Having a proper uniform would be good.

Anyone know which wings are available to order?

Correct, you would have to complete Level IV and then request reinstatement to Major, otherwise with Level III you would have railroad tracks again. Requirements for the levels are changing 4 Aug so unless you already have RSC and can finish Level IV quickly, you will have to go by the new requirements.

As for the new flight suit tag, you can get any currently authorized wings added, but you are now limited to one badge, so you couldn't do pilot and ground team on the same badge like you could with the old leather badges.

The tenor of the regulation is that members without grade pursuing officer rank wear things like those with officer grade (e.g. US cutouts on service coat, officer-style flight cap), so I would get the no-grade cloth badge.

Perfect. Still have the officer items from last time, so won't need much. Basically, just use my old uniforms after I pull rank off.

Kinda looking forward to the cloth nametag. Always liked them. (Looking for a source to do my my wings. Vanguard won't do them.)

Many folks who have sources for stuff are reluctant to send people to them because there is a risk, if they don't know you, they can't trust that you won't turn their source in and them get a C&D. That would mean they might not be able to get custom (read as non-uniform item) stuff anymore from their people.

I'm not saying you would JohnnyD, but that's the rationale.

And, its messed up that it's even a worry. Volunteers should be able to use least expensive options.

Being "Messed up" is an indicator that it's a legit Vanguard Product.  I'd be worried the giveaway would be if it was "too Perfect"
