Cadet Programs Mission
Civil Air Patrol uses the U.S. Air Force grade structure, with just a few differences. One such difference is that cadet officers where grade which consist of pips and diamonds, while the senior members use the Air Force's officer grade. Also, CAP's enlisted ranks are all associated with an achievement for which a cadet recieves a ribbon when he/she completes it. For more information about the grade structure and the cadet achievements they are associated with, please visit our CAP Grade page.

Texas Wing Cadet Page Program
We are pleased to announce the Texas Wing Cadet Page Program in the Texas House and Senate in Austin. Cadets aged 16 and oldermay apply to serve for a day as a page (think of it as an aide or a runner). You will be able to work closely with your representatives for an entire day during a session. This is an excellent opportunity for a cadet interested in Congressional appointments to a service academy, cadets interested in law, government or politics, or a cadet just looking for an interesting activity for a day. You MUST have impeccable dress blues (any style), worn IAW 39-1 and a willingness to represent CAP in a VERY public forum. To apply for this opportunity please send a memo stating your willingness to serve in this position plus two letters of recommendation ? one from your Squadron Commander and one from your Group Commander. Email these to Denise Thompson AND to Government Relations Officer, Maj Gordie White. Major White and LtCol Cima will select candidates and, upon notification of acceptance, the cadet will coordinate dates of service with Major White. If you are selected, be sure to send pictures of your experience to the cadet web site for publication!
