    Thought I saw who has which color on this forum, but I can't locate it. Searching through webguy for a photo of my DS.

    If you log onto the Webguy page and look down to the right hand corner of the BCTI photos, you will see "buttons" for each Squadron. The colors correspond to their lanyard colors.

    Happy hunting!

    In the past they have run out of certain sizes, so that is usually the reason for the difference. They will eventually all be the same.

    probably the case - I know when they had a medical issue they had different attire in bct2. DD had a cough going in - probably from the smoke since we had been there a couple of nights before so wasn't sure.

    They usually have an orange band (I think around their waist) when they are having something that medically limits their participation in exerting exercises. That way the cadre can identify them easily.

    Our son was on campus since last Friday (there for second session Powered Flight) and he said the smoke at the AFA was never an issue (at least for him and he wears contacts that could be irritated by smoke) except on Tuesday when the chinook winds let loose on the wildfire and it went out of control.

    I believe sometimes it is a question of cadet issue and pt shirts did not make it in for those individuals but they will have them in short order.... not worry.

    As for orange vests in some Webguy photos -- those are Basics assigned for that day or for a particular transit from location to location to act as a "crossing guard" for the group. The bright blue belts (like old fashioned safety patrol belts) have been used in the past for Basics who were sick or injured and on restricted activity (no running, no calisthenics, etc). The bright blue belt allows cadre to remember who is not supposed to engage in strenuous activities.

    I asked my daughter -- a C1C cadre for Guts -- about the different colored t-shirts -- some Basics are wearing the brown colored undershirts while they wait for the blue and white PT shirts with their names stenciled on the left breast area. The different colored shirts are nothing to worry about.

    As for smoke, my daughter (who is in charge of early morning calisthenics for Guts) told me that on Friday the smoke was not a problem and Basics did their run outdoors. However, early on Saturday morning (5 a.m.) the smoke over the Academy was bad -- therefore, the cadre were told to conduct calisthenics in the dorm hallways. Don't know about today -- Basics are not required to do the early morning calisthenics on Sundays. I think at this point it is a day by day decision re outdoor exercise based on the fire, wind and heat on that particular day. On hot days, you may see lots of pictures of Basics marching and standing on the Tezzo level under the dorms -- where it is cooler and out of the sun. You will also see pictures of Basics all drinking from their canteens at the same time -- the cadre are keeping a close eye on heat, sun and hydration all day long.
