Regardless, CAP grade is not military grade; it is what it is, and I simply don't think it's causing enough problems in the organization that it needs the time and attention it gets on CAP Talk.

If CAP isn't military grade, then why does it look just like it?

The time and attention it gets here is a sign of how important it is to the membership.  While serving the membership isn't anywhere near as important as serving the public, it's still a valid thing for a commander to think about. 

For example, it may mean that CAP tends to recruit (or create) folks who are more concerned with "bling" and "status" than with more pressing issues.  If so, that's something a commander should consider addressing. 

Since rank traditionally is related to authority, it may mean members have issues with how authority is used in CAP.  Again, commanders should care.

It may mean that many are concerned we are giving the wrong impression to the public.  Again, commanders should care.

So yeah, it matters.  The question is WHY does this issue keep coming up?  And what can the organization do to keep it from coming up in the future?
