Neither are going to help you become a PJ though. Just that CAP will give you some opportunities that involve rescue. The only thing that will help you become a PJ is excellent physical fitness, intellect and the ability to push through even when you want to quit. If you prepare yourself and you want it bad enough? You can definitely obtain it.

I'm late to the party, but:
SeaCadet5 obviously doesn't understand how being a cadet works. Or the military. Do you think a 34 year old Captain complains about having to take orders from a 32 year old Major?
Either way, you wouldn't be taking orders from a C/Amn, as that cadet is in the learning stage just like the C/AB. That said, the C/Amn is already progressing in the program and has a rudimentary knowledge, while a C/AB is a new member with no experience. Age is a non-factor.
While I think most people agree that cadets get too many ribbons in Phases I and II, I don't think it's all that excessive, nor "given" out. It takes at least two months between promotions. The whole program takes 3 years and 2 months MINIMUM to complete.
It took me 3 years to make it to C/2d Lt. Another year from there to get to C/Captain. I enjoyed it the whole way up, and only disengaged due to college. I'm thinking what I had to do for my promotions was no easier than what Sea Cadets have to do. In fact, I know it's not, because I knew plenty of Sea Cadets.
Boopro, what do you mean by "as a former TSgt with 5 ribbion racks within 1 year...."
Do you mean 5 rows? Mind listing off the ribbons you earned? You know, the 10 outside the promotion ribbons? No? Didn't think so.
"To easy i got one for promotion to SSgt..."
You also got one for C/Amn, C/A1C, C/SrA and C/TSgt. The difference is, the C/SSgt grade and ribbon signify the completion of phase one, and is an award with a certificate.
"CAP is a feel good about yourself "
All cadet programs should be. That's the point.
If anyone has any questions regarding CAP as a cadet, feel free to send me a PM or email me.
I've been on both sides of the house - cadet and senior member.

Someone got on my account,
I was a former CAP A1C, I lost intrest in the USAF and went USNSCC, I am currently a E-3 with the Serv. Award, NLCC Serv Award (Bronse Boot), Fitness Award (''E'' with a Bronse Star), and the Recruting Award.
I reccomend both programs and both are good to a standard, I respect CAP, And NSCC Members and their ranks are well earned.
