The Cadet Uniform Program provides new cadets with the main ingredients of an Air Force style blues uniform at no cost to the cadet (while federal funds remain available).
Update March 2015: This program closes on 1 May 2015. No further orders will be accepted after this date. Learn about the new program here.
Follow these steps to request a uniform:
ELIGIBILITY. This program is open to all cadets, but each cadet is eligible to receive only 1 uniform.
INSIGNIA & ACCOUTERMENTS. Through this program, cadets receive a flight cap, shirt or blouse, trousers or skirt, and a belt. To complete the uniform, cadets will need to obtain shoes, black socks or hose, and insignia (metal CAP cutouts, blue 3-line nametag, and enlisted cadet flight cap device) on their own. Check with your squadron for help obtaining these items, or contact CAP’s vendor, Vanguard, at www.civilairpatrolstore.com, telephone 1-800-221-1264.
