STATUS OF UNIFORMS *** January 2023
There continues to be a large backlog and shipping delays from the manufacture. Many existing uniform orders from last year have not yet been shipped. As items come in, we attempt to issue it to a cadet who needs that specific item.
We ask that you continue to be patient with uniforms. All cadets will be issued a uniform as soon as possible. Until all uniform items are issued, cadets are authorized to wear FTU uniforms or black and white clothing with rank slip-on attached.
Please note, the squadron receives a limited number of points to order uniform parts, which are replenished each year. Due to the high demand of uniform items, and the number of cadets who have outgrown their uniforms during COVID, the squadron’s points have been depleted, and our ability to order new uniform parts is extremely limited. Attempts to facilitate new issue is on-going but all cadets must be patient and expect a continued delay. We are doing our best.
Please understand that the squadron staff work very hard to ensure the success of the cadet program, over and above their full-time civilian careers. Thank you for your patience and understanding with this issue.
Please contact 2Lt. Reimer by email with all supply related inquiries. His email can be found on the staff contact page.
Access to Supply is by appointment only.
If you require a simple exchange of a uniform part that does not require measurements (exchange for same size, badges, etc), please send an email to the supply officer. Arrangements can be made for exchange/new issue at the supply office or at MALC during regular training without an appointment.
Blue name tags for dress uniform are managed by the Squadron Sponsoring Committee through the Cadet Canteen. First issue is free, replacements are $5.00.
One pair of boot bands are issued with your field training uniforms. If you have not received boot bands with your FTU boots, please email the supply officer for your initial issue.
Replacement boot bands may be purchased from the Cadet Canteen.
