Also according to CAPF 2b Membership Termination Failure to progress 2 ranks per year is cause for Termination of Membership for cadet by the Squadron Commander. Though to date I have never seen it done

Well he may not be a cadet to model after their not going to terminate his membership due to him not wanting to passover to the dark side of the cadet program. He's probably one of the best flight commanders in the CAP cadet program.

I'm sure he is, and that's probably why they haven't said anything, but it really sorts out those who are in it on again off again and those who are using Nationals resources wisely. Some people just don't want to be officers, and some don't think they are ready, and thats why regs are always being broken by everybody. lol.

You are in military company, there are a few former and current Rangers, besides myself that visit this board. I am suprised that CAP would sink to the level of having a program with that title.

Nonetheless, congrats on your accomplishment, keep pushing and working hard.

Why? Is the place called Hawk Mountain? Sorry, I don't know much about it.

The history of it(the term Ranger) goes back 40 years. They actually used to wear ranger(2nd, 1st, etc) tabs, but it was banned after people started getting too big for their britches. And they used to call themselves Airborne Rangers, but we're not really airborne, so it's just Ranger for the bold ones and R2, R1, Advanced/ Medic, Expert for the smart ones. If I should ever speak on this topic again, I'll refer to myself as an R2. Sorry if I ruffled any feathers. And where on Earth are all the Army Rangers? I know there are at least 3 floating around here. Speak ye or forever hold thy peace!

...Nulli, I met a few Chiefs, and they all had names. What was this particular Chief's name?

Topic: Staff cadet BOO


Ive been a staff cadet at hawk mountain ranger school for 3 years and im not so sure that youve "kicked its ass." You may remember me from the Alpha XO position i held this year...i love talking about the mountain so feel free to ask questions.
p.s. there WAS an airborne section of hawk mountain until about 20 years ago. the air force cut our funding when we beat them to a high media plane crash.
