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
If one of these conditions are met, the cadet can transition and continue serving in Senior Member status.
HOW TO APPLY:
Prospective Cadets and their Parents are invited to attend a Squadron Open House or Visit a MONDAY Meeting.
To schedule a visit, CLICK HERE.
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.
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.
Upon approval of the local Cadet Membership Board: Sign Up Online (CLICK HERE)

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.
