Uniforms (Page is a work in progress)
· Where do my patches and insignia go?
- Read Pages 7-9, “The Proper wear of Air Force-Style Cadet Uniforms”
· How do I get my patches on my uniform?
- Go to a local tailor or find a family friend or relative to sew on the patches.
- Do we have any parents that are willing to volunteer their time sewing on patches when needed for free or a small charge to the cadets?
· I promoted, what order do my ribbons go in?
- On the HCS COWG Webpage, under Testing, Promotions, & Qualifications\Promotions and Ribbons and scroll down to Ribbon Rack Builder.

· Where do I buy my uniform?
- There are many ways to obtain uniforms…
* Check with the squadron first!
· The squadron may have uniforms or be able to reach out to supply to see if there is a uniform that will fit.
· NOTE: Uniforms provided by the squadron or supply must be returned when you leave the squadron or outgrow the uniform.
