Thank you very much sir, I have aspired to go to RMC or be an officer in the CF by some other means ... I have also recently finished my processing for RMC and am awaiting the decision of the National Selection Board.

Do you guys agree with me the NSCE has lost it's prestige?  Honestly NSCE has a low standard and too many people have it.

Tell that to the great deal of cadets who fell out of ranks with the "March of Shame" after failing.

If anything, NSCE has more prestige now, in my humble opinion, now that it is a prerequisite for the higher ranks.

I was just about to ask that myself, MWO. I tried looking through every reference and CATO known to mankind, but I can't find anything on a Legion 75th (??) medal. Maybe it's an Air Cadet thing?

Maybe it was a one time thing? First thing that comes to mind would be a medal for the 75th anniversary of the legion, that's likely not it though, I'll check the air CATO's when I get home...
This is what it would have looked like had the plane crashed into a school for bunnies.

From what I know, Air Cadets should not be wearing them, and I checked some Air Cadet Reference Books online, and can find no menton of the medal.  Hmm///

I say we stop the random speculation and wait until eliminator gets on here and tells us what it is.

Also look at the fact he in no longer a cadet and no longer wears that medal. Rules change over the years ,this could be one of those changes.
It's not insubordinate if you know exactly where the line is and walk on it but never cross it.

Ok, so here's the story on the Legion 75th medal:

It was a medal the legion produced for their 75th anniversary in 2001. I was fortunate enough to attend the celebration of this at a convention in Ottawa. Everyone who attended this event, by invitation only, was given the medal. I believe there was only about 10-15 cadets there from all over the country. Most of us had to give presentations on military affairs and mingle with the veterans all weekend. When I returned, we found out that we were given permission to wear the medal. So, it was more like a gimmi medal like a jubilee or a Canada 125. I also heard of cadets that got it via other means, prob cadet sqns or corps associated with legions.

Did I deserve it? Who knows. There wasn't any strict guidelines. But since my family is very active in the legion and I used to do alot with them, both with cadets and on my own, I guess this medal was warranted.

Here's a pic

theres a big discussion on www.cadet-world.com as to whether or not cadets should be allowed to wear non cadet medals, and if so, how the wearing would go

congratulations on getting this medal, it looks fancy

i will leave it at that, as there is no need to make a second discussion as to whether cadets can or cannot wear nation decorations or legion medals on their cadet uniform

I dont want to start anything, but since both the cadet medals and legion ones dont have "official national" standing and are not reconized by the honour system, I think it's ok that they go together.

Nation medals and cadet ones together is a diffrent story. Simple answer: No
