Heck. Half my school is filled with Cadets. I end up calling everyone by their last names - and they call me by my rank. Nobody except the real losers (who don't know what they are missing) Call us idiots.
But our community is mostly a military one, So - we get along fine. But hey - Being a Cadet isn't stupid. Its a great experience, One that will follow you and your career in the future.

You have started on a path that most would not consider. That someone would give themselves over to service to their country is not within their realm of materialist existence. The whole concept is something most cannot understand and they fear what they do not understand.

In a very real way you are a threat to their way of life and an example of how trivial they are. Even if they donít know it, they fear what you represent and, on some level, are ashamed they do not trod the path with you.

I had the opportunity to join Cadets when I first moved to Canada.

At the time, I was new to the country and shy and stuff and so, I decided not to join.

I now am looking into pursuing a military career, and regret not taking the opportunity, I feel as thought it would have better prepared me for the path which I may take.

Ah well, no regrets... Utmost respect for the cadets.

I wouldn't say i get picked at for being a cadet the uniforms people will say something every once in a while but its usually questions and i don't mind but i think at my school we get more respect as a group by everyone mainly because we hold our selfs and other cadets to a higher standards which is great.
