Cadets vs. Explorers
Im in a cadet post now, but I am limited to what we can do as far as insurance. What advantages/disadvantages are there of transforming the cadets into explorers?
Any applications or SOP's would also be great. Ours needs desperate updating. Go ahead and pm me if you can help out with that. I have a copy of ours I can send if you would like as well.
Thanks alot and stay safe.
Do a search, please. There's TONS of threads already around here concerning the cadets vs explorers.
I can help you out with the SOGs once we finalize our changes.
The terminology of catdet/explorer/junior means 50 different things in 50 different states and in every state it can have 5,000 different meanings.
The meaning of cadet/junior/explorer basically can be summed up in one word; "student". You are here to learn.
You say tomato. I say to-mah-to
You say potato, I say po-tah-to
Cadet, Explorer, the terms are just a roarer
Let's call the whole thing off!
Generally speaking there is no difference in calling underaged hands Cadets, Explorers, Juniors, "Hey YOU" or even juvenile delinquent in the firehouse. I think that Explorers are governed by the Boy Scouts of America. Outside of that changing names accomplishes nothing
