From the limited time i spent in Air Cadets....it was a youth group....main reason i only lasted a few months. Too politically correct and far too much cuddling and holding hands for it to be anything else...not to mention the average age is about 14-15

I had the same problem with Army Cadets...just a bunch of children and teen stoners that wanted to fire guns. Little to no discipline. Not what I was expecting, so I quit. Basically it's a daycare center for tweens.

I don't really talk or care about ranks anymore, I'm basically aging out in 6 months anyways (unless I get a transfer to some other squadron) so it's kind of useless to give me a rank when I'm leaving.

Also I've kind of found better things to do with my life than listen to some idiots who are younger than me and think their all that because their like 3 ranks above me AND it's seems to be soooo hard to take 8 gr.11 courses and do cadets and stuff, whereas I'm someone taking..... what's that? 11 courses? and in gr.12? AND actually applying to a hard faculty to get into (App. Sc. or ASc.)?

In this day and age of kids doing nothing put play video games and listen to hip-hop the army cadets still sounds like a good option for some younger teens.

Personally I picked provincial football.

oh yes its a wonderful program but its gone sour in the last couple years at least out here kids marchin with thier elbows bent (that drives me insane) and having no motivation what so ever the officers dont crack down on it no matter how pathetic the drill is you will get a "good job you guys are perfect yay lets go have cookies!!" its a sad sight really i can see the point to raise the kids spirits but praise shouldent be awarded for nothing it should be earned

at my squadron first few days of the year these two new kids had to sit to the side and watch so they played shots and were cussin on parade and nobody did anything its shameful really

sports programs are excellent as well for kids as it gets them not only part of a team but it gets them active

Ah 1944... I remember doing some things with them. Of course, that was back when both them and our unit had asshole CO's.

So they actually let you touch C7's eh? I didn't think they let Cadets use those anymore. When I was in they wouldn't even let us use the .303's.

So true. I was back at my old unit around Christmas to set up their office internet, and as soon as I walked in there I spotted 5 kids I never would have let on the parade square (wearing T-shirts, geans, running shoes... I almost said something to the warrant). I'm soooo glad I'm not affiliated with a squadron anymore. It really pains me to see how downhill the Cadet program is starting to go. It's such a great program with great opportunities plagued by shitty rules that doesn't let you discipline kids anymore. No respect and no discipline left in the system. It's getting way to sloppy for my liking.

Sorry. I wanted to rant because I feel like shit after taking 11 courses (5 being provincial exam courses) (Plus it's term 2 so I was kind of pissed).

Anyways I would have liked to play ice hockey but my family was kind of poor (being Asian immigrant's who escaped communism) and all, and they had to work (I heard practices were sometimes 5 in the morning or earlier). I also would have really liked to join a dragon boat team, which I did last year but it kind of fell apart this year because we didn't have a coach or people who wanted to join.

So I think that cadets is a good program that has lots of potential, but hasn't even reached it, in fact I think the level is going down, they've basically hit the glass ceiling. The only good thing is that I can get a pilots license from it (but I haven't done that, and I'm actually planning to go to the Air Ops. course this summer).

Yea, back when I was in cadets we did some joint exercises with 1944. I doubt you were there though this is going back about 7 years or more
I was in 714 RC(Air)C. Finished as CSC at rank of WO1. Now I'm a civilian instructor attached to the gliding center at CFB Borden.
