Commit to Memory:
I pledge to serve faithfully in the Civil Air Patrol Cadet Program and that I will attend meetings regularly, participate actively in unit activities, obey my officers, wear my uniform properly and advance my education and training rapidly to prepare myself to be of service to my community, state, and nation.
Cadet Honor Code
I will not lie, cheat, or steal, or tolerate among us anyone who does.
Definition of Leadership
The art of influencing and directing people in a way that will win their obedience, confidence, respect and loyal cooperation in achieving a common objective.
Semper Vigilans = Always vigilant
CAP Missions: Aerospace Education, Emergency Services, Cadet Programs.
Promotion Boards: Are You Up For Promotion? Have you met all requirements? Then email Capt. Gerena no later than the Friday before next Promotion Board with the Achievement Name & Number so you are placed on the agenda.
Uniform/Grooming: Check CAP Manual (CAPM) 39-1 for proper uniform wear, placement of insignia, etc., and personal grooming standards. CAPM 39-1 can be downloaded from capmembers.com, under “Forms and Publications” click on “Indexes, Regulations and Manuals”. It is a LARGE pdf file, 106 pages with lots of images and charts. Or click on the individual chapters to easily locate information.
Females: Your hair must be “above” the bottom edge of the shirt collar in the back. Drooping buns, pony tails and hair that sticks out wildly does not meet grooming standards. Be sure you carry extra bobby pins, pony tail bands, spray, etc. with you so you can keep your hair neat, tidy, and “UP”. No long dangle earrings or hoops, or color nail polish with uniform.
