Soldier dating air cadet, legal?
« on: November 21, 2016, 23:16:16 »
I'm 18, and an NCM in the PRes, I've been seeing this girl that's 17 and in air cadets. We're not doing anything too serious right now, but is there any rules prohibiting us having a relationship in the CSD?

There are related rules against compromising your integrity, judgement, authority.

Bullshit.  She's a civilian over the age of consent. You're a part time soldier over the age of consent.  As long as there are no PDAs with either of you in uniform, you're fine.
Apparently, a "USUAL SUSPECT"

“In peace there's nothing so becomes a man as modest stillness and humility; but when the blast of war blows in our ears, then imitate the action of the tiger; stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood, disguise fair nature with hard-favor'd rage.”

I would stay away when she's actually participating in a cadet activity.

There are items in CATOs that would proscribe contact during an activity.  I have found nothing that would stipulate you can't see her other than that.

What he said... there are a few very famous Generals who didn't have the maturity to ask that questions and/or follow advice and suffered he consequences.
