Do cadets wear uniforms?

Cadets need one uniform to get started.   Eventually, the cadet will want to have both the camouflage utility uniform (ABUs) and the Air Force-style service uniform, "blues."

Upon completing Achievement 1 and becoming a Cadet Airman, cadets qualify for the Curry Blues Voucher, which covers some of the costs of the Air Force-style blue uniform. Therefore, we suggest you obtain ABUs first, and then use the Curry Blues Voucher to obtain your “blues.”    

Before you purchase any uniform items, please be sure to speak with your squadron leaders.  They can help ensure you're getting the right uniform and may be able to provide information on how to obtain it locally.
