CANFORGEN 040/19 - Patches and T-shirts
« on: March 17, 2019, 13:22:57 »
I mean, I get the idea...but how many people will shell out $ for embroidered sqn blue and "Sqn colour" t-shirts?  Esp if the sqn colour ones are only to be worn on Fridays?

Whew... I thought there was going to be some messing around with flight suits, leather jackets and 'Top Gun' sunglasses....

If "messing around" meant "get some more", I'd welcome the change.

The CADO requires everyone to go get a Velcro patch on the fleece jacket so you can put the flag on it too.  Lots of...useful changes  ;D...in the CADO. 

I think most people would be happy if they could get a flight suit to put any patches on that wasn't thread-bare.  That's not a fashion issue, either, that's part of my dual-layer.  I'll worry about embroidered t shirts when the ALSE issues are solved...

I've now been around long enough that my full colour Sqn patches and embrodiered tee-shirts are back in "style".  I wonder if I have enough time left before I retire to see it all cycle back to low vis again?

See, I was thinking more along the lines of tie dye...

The one thing I like about the way they did it the patches aspect was to authorize them but also delineate what was public vs personal/non-publically funded. It saves time and effort staffing up requests for this badge or that badge but regardless if approved, it is clear if it is optional then it procured without public funds.  As much as I hate buttons and bows I think it may be worthwhile for all L1s to come up with their variant of this CANFORGEN, especially CJOC as you can spend an entire tour trying to get a badge bought at NPF/personal expense approved. 

Hope is not a valid COA

Because velcro never hurt anyone involved in aero-space operations, right?

Oh, wait... Apollo 1

"Another major finding was that the prevalence of flammable materials inside the Apollo 1 cabin further increased the risk of fire.

After the accident, NASA reduced the amount of flammable Velcro in the crew cabin, and tested many of the capsule's materials for flammability."

The AF fleece isn't approved for flying duties...but I do have 6 Velcro patches on my flight shirt and 5 on my jacket  :Tin-Foil-Hat:

I'm usually more worried about the 50k+ pounds of POL and thousands of pounds of search/kill stores that are part of the party I'm sitting over/around though  :D

The pattern is overly aggressive in design and the pink appears somewhat faded;  I'm curious why the pink is being subjected to weaker colouring than the blues and white and feel concerned for how pink might feel about this.
