How To Join

We are excited that you are interested in joining the Mobile Composite Squadron. This is how you join.


To become a cadet, you must be be between the ages of 12 and 18 years old.

As long as there is active cadet membership prior to turning 19, a cadet can choose to continue in the cadet program and progress until they:
a.  join the military
b.  turn 21
c.  marry
If one of these conditions are met, the cadet can transition and continue serving in Senior Member status.


Step 1

Prospective Cadets and their Parents are invited to attend a Squadron Open House or Visit a MONDAY Meeting.
To schedule a visit, CLICK HERE.

Step 2

Complete 3 Squadron Visits (attending an open house counts as 1). This allows Prospective Cadets and their Parents the opportunity to get a good feel for what the program has to offer, what the expectations are for cadet participation, and to have any questions answered.

Step 3

Express your interest in joining and request a Membership Board from the Deputy Commander for Cadets. A Membership Board allows both the Prospective Cadet and their Parent, and Squadron leadership to discuss the deals of membership before officially applying for membership.

Step 4

Upon approval of the local Cadet Membership Board: Sign Up Online (CLICK HERE)

Step 5

What To Do As A Newly Approved Cadet


A parent or guardian must remain with a prospective Cadet during Squadron visits. Once your child has established active membership with CAP, it is no longer necessary for a parent or guardian to be present. However, we always encourage parents / guardians to attend and get involved in Squadron activities. See our Parents, Family and Friends page by CLICKING HERE.
