In the spirit of nit picking uniform pics.....



Ok so it was a test run for my Photo ID but its still the newest I have.

Patch pucker near the mini wings.....BTW, you can still wear the large, (now my opinion) and as a pilot, I would.

The name plate backing is off keel as well.

Like I said sorry to nit pick the uniform....

You do understand the mini wings are also called shirt wings right... you CAN wear the large wings on the shirt, but it looks silly. If you had a 3.8 on an engineering/math/science degree &/or graduated the academy (which is pretty much an engineering degree regardless of major), and got selected over 95% of your classmates, and graduated a three year highly intensive training process, then I might cut you some slack for being so proud of it. You CAN wear large wings on the shirt in the AF too, but people don't. It's just a little bit pretentious. You can do what you want, but I'm asking nicely.

Yeah, stick with the minis on the shirt please...... everybody......

The AF wears the minis on the shirt, the regulation on the jacket.  They may point and laugh.

Ummm not sure what you just said, but I'll still wear the large wings.

Also I just got "transferred" to the Ghost squadron, so I guess it really don't mean crap.....

I think what he meant is that if you were an Air Force Academy grad/jet pilot, you might  be able to get away with it.  I think the large wings are a little obnoxious.  Especially if you have Command Pilot wings.  They look huge!

Here we are 1,225 posts later and here is the first picture of me.  The cute girl next to me is my adoring wife  :-* (You might recognize her from the new SLS slides) The picture was taken last year just before a KC-135 flight with the NHANG.

EDIT: SLS Slides

the bad thing is I know and respect that man very much he is a Lt Col with Coastal Charleston now he was at Langley Sq when that was taken the SC patch was shopped

Oh, I'm not questioning the colonel's ability or anything like that...  I'm sure he is a fine officer.  This is directed more at the folks who put the picture of him without a t-shirt underneath in the manual and should have known better.

And they shouldn't photoshop anything.  Not only does it look tacky, it screams of "We put this manual together at the last minute!"  Not a good message to send, especially when thousands of people have waited years for a quality product.

We are still waiting .  By my math the other manual was what 1993, the next came out in 1997.  So '97 to '08 is 11 years, plus the original '93 to '97 is 4 years, 4 plus 11 is 15 years.  We have been waiting for a good reference for 15 years.  (Was it '93 or 1991??)

Either way 15 or 17 years depending on when the manual 2 manuals came out on was. 

Are we shooting for 20 years for a decent looking reg NHQ??

That picture is circa 2004.  She was going through peoples personnel records.  You wouldn't believe some of the stuff people keep... :)

On another note - seems I've avoided the "uniform discrepancy comments :)"  Always good to know I can put my clothes on right :)

There is an article about our squadron in the new edition of the CAP volunteer magazine....and there was a picture of me in there........ Just wanted to share it here as the title of the forum is: Show yourself.
Welcome to CAP Talk.  Sounds like you're doing some good things over in DE.  Kudos.

And multi-cam, man that would be way better. Gonna piss off the AF though. They made their uniform dif than ours but same basic color pallet so it kind of blends, and now we're talking about going to another dissimilar pallet. 

Get your MultiCam now: http://www.1800nametape.com/multicam.htm

As for the Air Force, they wanted their own thing, now they've got it. As John Wayne said, "Life's tough. It's tougher when you're stupid". Once everything is said and done, the only thing that the AF will use that is common with the Army on their uniforms is the T-shirt. Nice savings there. That's what? About a six dollar item for a pack of three?

Once all the branches have their own uniforms, no two will have the same color footwear, and very few common items. Everyone wanted their own individual identity, but they did it at the expense of their service members.

It's hard to see you behind that big squadron patch.  Your wife looks the same as in that AF article from Langley.

^Huge isn't it...the patch I mean.  It measures 4in across, but it is ALLLLL CAP.

The AF article?  Do you mean the "Airman Moonlights as CAP Officer Article?"
