Quote from: BillB on January 24, 2008, 11:52:08 amSometime around 1949, "someone" at National OK'd the rank of C/BGen. Now CAP has no record of it. But there were seven cadets nation wide that got the promotion. This lasted about one week until AFROTC complained that since they didn't have cadet general grade, CAP shouldn't. And those seven were returned to their original cadet grade.

What the crap. I do believe they are not following any of the JROTC uniform manuals there. WOW

Quote from: SJFedor on January 24, 2008, 09:26:45 pmI pity the cadet who enlists and says at basic training "I was a C/BG back in Chicago!" It'd be on like donkey kong.
Quote from: mikeylikey on February 01, 2008, 07:35:54 pm^ Why did you stick around in CAP then? YOu should have done JROTC and left CAP right??
Quote from: JThemann on February 01, 2008, 07:44:21 pmI was in CAP before JROTC. My JROTC unit did also have major problems.But, so does CAP. In my JROTC unit, no cadet ever had more then about a dozen or so ribbons. No cadet worried about lanyards, or service caps, or badges. No cadet every wore a civilian jacket over his/her blues. No cadet ever showed up in blues with a flip knife clipped to his/her belt. Etc etc etc.What I'm trying to say is, don't bash JROTC. Look at both programs from an ojective point of view.
Quote from: flyguy06 on February 06, 2008, 10:43:55 pmThe only place I know that is authorized the rank of cadet General is Texas A&M ROTC program. They have a joint Corps of Cadets. That Chicago unit is the firat joint JROTC Corps I have ever seen. Good idea though.
Quote from: JThemann on February 01, 2008, 07:10:28 pmIt seems gentlemen, that people who live in a glass house of cadet programs shouldn't throw rocks.First, I don't believe it was JROTC who complained about the lack of C/BG rank, it was college ROTC. So, it wasn't a case of JROTC 'dictating our policy.' It was a legit complaint that lead to a change in policy.Second, I learned more CP/military related stuff and much much much more AE related stuff in JROTC then is taught in CAP. To say 'Well, we occasionally let cadets go on missions' doesn't make/break the CP of CAP.
QuoteI left CAP as a C/FO
Quote from: ♠SARKID♠ on March 10, 2008, 08:49:21 amQuoteI left CAP as a C/FOA cadet flight officer? Sounds like something from before my time.
Quote from: Al Sayre on March 11, 2008, 11:45:04 amWhen I left the Cadet Program, I was a C/WO and we wore our glod pips on shoulderboards. This was just slightly before dinosaurs roamed the earth.
