Civil Air Patrol

Uniforms

Members of the Civil Air Patrol wear a slightly modified version of the United States Air Force uniform.

The full uniform manual is available online at: https://www.capmembers.com/media/cms/M391_E6F33EAAEC28A.pdf

The squadron has some uniform items available for free in various sizes (may not have all sizes), including the dress blues uniform and BDU’s / ABU’s.

Members are also able to purchase these items if they want to. Civil Air Patrol uses Vanguard as the official supplier of CAP uniform items.

Cadets that join and complete the first achievement will receive an online coupon to get a brand new dress blues uniform.

Details on the cadet uniform program are available at https://www.capmembers.com/cadet_programs/new_cadet_help/uniforms/

Additional uniform items are the members responsibility. The following are the most common items needed for members to complete a uniform.

All of these are available from Vanguard. Please note, some items are different for males and females.

Some items may be available from the squadron (see below list and price).

If you need assistance measuring headgear or other clothing, see our supply officer during a meeting.
