Squadron Uniform Policy

New cadets wear jeans and white tee shirt and dark shoes. Usually on the third Thursday of the month we do PT and gym type clothes are worn. Cadets must be in BDU’s by November 1 for Veterans Day activities. Veterans Day at the school is Nov 7 and the Cape Coral Parade on Nov 11. BDU’s may be purchased at Stan’s Army/Navy store on Palm Beach Blvd., Ft Myers. Tell them you are a Civil Air Patrol Member and they will give a 10% discount. They are also helpful with getting the cadets in boots that are comfortable for Florida weather. If purchasing the complete set of BDU’s at Stan’s with boots the cost will be around $100.00. Vanguard is another source for BDUs.

We have a squadron T-shirt and hat at a cost of $16. The shirt is $7 and the hat is $9. Cadets will wear the squadron baseball cap  in the Veterans Day events. Please make checks payable to Gulf Middle School. 

A complete set of patches and name tags for the BDUs are $15.00. Again make checks payable to Gulf Middle School.

The Air Force supplies the Blue Uniform which can be ordered once the cadet has earned their Curry Award they will receive a voucher in the amount of $100.00 to purchase the authorized items through www.vanguardmil.com The cost of the name plate, rank insignia, and hat device for the service cap is appx. $10.00.

In accordance with CAP policy it is requested that cadets that terminate their membership within the first year return their Air Force issued uniform to the squadron. We ask that cadets or senior members that are ending their association with CAP after the first year consider donating their uniforms to the squadron.
