Attention All Hands,
When the Cadet Corps was initially stood up two years ago it did not contain any policy for their on awards and decorations. It was something we felt could wait while they got themselves initially established. Given their relative stability, and decent success, we feel it is finally time to begin awarding them their own decorations.
Below is the link to the Cadet Corps Awards and Decorations Policy. This will, later, be put into a nicer document, but this is good enough for now for initial information dissemination. These awards are based on the Young Marines Awards which can be found here for reference.
The Awards and Decorations staff will not be required to maintain the racks of the Cadets. Specific implementation is still in discussion, but this could be by an Awards and Decs Staff by the Cadets themselves, personal volunteer (in the same vein as the old fatigues blocks someone used to do), or by personal assembly of the Cadet themselves.
These awards currently will NOT transfer to the Main Unit. There may, in the future, be some discussion about translation of some personal awards translating to Main Unit equivalents, but this will not be occurring for now. All service awards will be automatically awarded (as usual), and all personal awards will be approved by Command Staff.
