Encampment Staff encourages ALL Basic Cadets to review this important document so that you will know what is and is not allowed when wearing the uniform. This document goes into much more depth of explanations that you may not get at your local squadron. This will keep you from arriving at encampment in violation of CAPM 39-1, CAP Uniform Manual. Some violations could result in dismissal from encampment or not being allowed to in-process.
