The Cadet Uniform Program provides new cadets with the main ingredients of an Air Force style blues uniform to use at no cost to the cadet (while federal funds remain available). These uniforms remain the property of CAP and must be surrendered upon termination of CAP membership.

Female Sizing Chart - Male Sizing Chart

Follow these steps to request a uniform:

Cadet joins CAP and obtains a 6-digit CAPID number.
Cadet visits E-Services at www.capnhq.gov. (First time users will need to register.)
Cadet clicks “Cadet Uniform” in the left-hand menu at E-Services.
Cadet verifies name, address, etc., and enters uniform sizes.
Squadron Commander approves request via the “Commander’s Corner” in E-Services.

Lackland AFB ships the uniform. Expect it to arrive 2-3 weeks after NHQ sends the approval to Lackland (the status of the request will appear as “sent” on the commander’s report).

ELIGIBILITY. This program is open to all cadets, but each cadet is eligible to receive only 1 uniform.

INSIGNIA & ACCOUTERMENTS. Through this program, cadets receive a flight cap, shirt or blouse, trousers or skirt, and a belt. To complete the uniform, cadets will need to obtain shoes, black socks or hose, and insignia (metal CAP cutouts, blue 3-line nametag, and enlisted cadet flight cap device) on their own. Check with your squadron for help obtaining these items, or contact CAP’s vendor, Vanguard, at www.civilairpatrolstore.com, telephone 1-800-221-1264.
