shoes and socks,) AFJROTC textbooks, computers, charts, etc., are equipment
items loaned to you by the Air Force. Other items of equipment belong to or are

7.2 At the time you are issued a uniform and equipment items you will be required to sign a Custody Receipt Form and place your initials on each line for individual items of uniform and equipment issued. You will also be required to pay a deposit for the uniform. Each item then becomes your personal responsibility. If you lose an item, or willfully or negligently damage/destroy it, you will be required to pay for it. The cost of replacement will be the cost that is in effect when the account is cleared.
7.3 One complete uniform with all accessories and insignia is issued to each cadet. It is very important that each cadet understand that all items of uniform or equipment (with the exception of shoes and socks) must be returned or paid for before the end of the school year. Neither the AFJROTC Certificate of Training nor the Certificate of Completion will be awarded until all uniforms and equipment items have been turned-in. In addition, a financial obligation will be incurred which will disallow graduation, registration, or transfer of credit until satisfied.
7.4 To preclude unnecessary expense to the cadet and/or delay of receipt of grades or diploma, and to provide for efficient turn-in of uniforms and equipment, the following suggestions are offered:
7.4.1 Do not leave uniform items in unlocked lockers or unattended in other places at school.
7.4.2 Do not permit another cadet to turn-in your uniform or equipment items.
7.4.3 Do not lend insignia or other uniform/equipment items to your friends.
7.4.4 Do place your name on each uniform item (in an inconspicuous place) with suitable clothing identification tape, ensure bleed-through will not occur.
7.4.5 Do be alert for uniform or equipment items left or misplaced by another cadet. Turn-in such items to the Military Property Custodian (MPC.)
7.5 Clothing items that become worn or otherwise unserviceable should be turned in to the MPC as soon as possible. If the unserviceable condition is due to fair wear and tear in normal use, the item will be replaced at no cost. If the unserviceable condition is deliberate or due to negligence you will be held financially responsible. Items of clothing that do not fit properly should be altered or exchanged.
7.6 When turning in or exchanging uniform items or other equipment, turn them in clean and deal only with the MPC.
7.7 THE UNITED STATES AIR FORCE UNIFORM IS ONE OF THE SYMBOLS OF A PROUD AND HONORABLE SERVICE. WEAR THE UNIFORM WITH THE CARE AND PRIDE IT DESERVES.
