THINGS TO REMEMBER Uniforms need to be ironed, and footwear shined. It is recommended you drop your BDUs off at the Dry Cleaners on bi-monthly, and have them starched. You can then wear your BDUs two-to-four times to weekly meetings without needing to wash them. It costs about $8, but your uniform will look great. Boots need to be polished; Kiwi Black is best. You can procure blousers from the Supply Officer. Cadets are expected to consistently present themselves at a high standard of dress and appearance. Hair Cut – needing a haircut will result in your being required to change into a PT Uniform for that particular meeting. Shave – needing a shave will also result in your being required to change into a PT Uniform for that particular meeting. With the short-sleeved blue shirt uniform combination, you should be wearing your correct rank, ribbons, cap, belt with chromed buckle, and white v-neck tee shirt. With BDUs, you should be wearing your correct rank, with Name tape, CAP tape, flag, wing and squadron patches, patrol cap, belt with black buckle, and black tee shirt. Pants must be bloused.
