Well, I now wear a US Flag, Two Grade Cutouts, A Wing Patch that I took off, because it is "optional", And a Tape that says "U.S. Civil Air Patrol"

There is the Australian, Brazil, Congo...etc...

But yea, Wing Patches optional. for more than a year now.

ahhh, yes that is true.
i stand corrected.
but i still think it's ridiculous lol.
I was looking at my plain jane, flagless, 1 rank insignia & a CAP cutout, CAP/Shuping nametapes and my wonderful blue and white NCWG patch... and I just shook my head lol.

Yes we do. Its becasue we are Department of Homeland Security......and being an active Gov't entity............fine by me baseball players were flags too, lol.

Optional wing patch, WTF?

Yeah, well, I'm rejoining CAP. I do believe.
I was promised my old Blackhawk gear back, and they fully restocked it for me. And I've been promised some pretty good positions within the ES part. Plus I'll have a good chance of being C/CC, and the current C/CC needs a strong (aka determined) woman's guidance in about every way.

SO yeah.
