Well this thread seems old but I joined back I 2007 and i have to say CAP is a great program and I assume the other youth military corps are good too. I am currently a C/SMSgt and I'm testing for my last requirement for Chief tomorrow. I am also my squadron's Flight Commander. But I have to disagree with whoever said it's hard to get wings because I'm going Flight Encampment in a few weeks and after that I will get pre-solo wings.

I'm just going to say the Civil Air Patrol is a deticated force for good, it may not seem like much, but there are real planes in the back of my HQ, with hangars, only an idiot would spend that much time and money of putting up barbed wire fences and CAP airplanes and hangars to something so dumb. We may not be the branches of the military, but we get stuff done, and we are all dedicated to do something in life,
for joining a military branch, i'm pretty sure the military would rather see "Cadett in Civil Air Patrol" then nothing. It's a really good way to get started and only the deticated cadetts make it through. I'm new but I'm really into it and i have my BDU's and everything and promise you there was never one time were i didn't have a good time there!
