    Well one day, one of my friends were like "Are you going to have a bake sale?" and in the most sarcastic tone I could said "Yes.. I'm going to Iraq", needless to say he was like "REALLY>?!?", replied with "No".. and got.. "Are you going to have a Cadet Bake Sale in Iraq?!?!", sadly I sarcastically replied yes. good times..

    Cadet Bake Sale...in IRAQ!

    All my friends think I go to two schools.
    One 'regular school', and a 'cadet school'. Because there are a whole bunch of us that talk about what happens during classes at cadets, who did what while instructing, etc, they call it " school after school ".

    The air one is correct, Us sea cadets usually get called puddle pirates (i've never been called a frog since I joined 8 years ago, and for army its either land lovers or GRUNTS as mentioned before...

    I've always known sea cadets as puddle pirates or anchor wankers. Take your pick.

    There's kids in my school from Sea, Army, and Air. Sadly, I'm the only Air Cadet, there's 1 other Sea Cadet, and 2 Army Cadets.

    And apparently, the thing we argue about is how we SMELL.

    "Sea Cadets smell the best, they smell like the fresh water!"
    "Army Cadets reek!"

    I in no way agree to any of their statements.

    None of these stereotypes are true, obviously.

    -All Cadets do is just stand there and be yelled at.
    -Cadets march, and do nothing else.
    -Air Cadets is the only Cadets Organization that exist.
    -Army Cadets is the only Cadets Organization that exist.
    -Sea Cadets is the only Cadets Organization that exist.
    -There are no ranks, we just go for a certain amount of years and quit.
    -Cadets is no fun.
    -All uniforms are blue
    -All uniforms are green
    -All uniforms are black
    -Cadets is like Scouts with a drill sergeant (i have to refrain from strangling whoever says Cadets is like Scouts)
    -All Cadets go to the Forces afterwards when they age out

    Thats all I can think of at the minute... feel free to add yours
    I had a friend and we were arguing if cadets was scouts or not, I swear I wanted to drop her into a volcano, also I overhear from like everybody I know: what do you do in cadets?

    I was always told that if you have to join join the navy or air because they always sleep in nice beds with clean sheets... not the Army there usually in the ditch or somewhere very unfit for humans. lol

    Oh that's not a stereotype that's fact I prefer sleeping in my nice warm rack at sea getting rocked to sleep, having someone wash my clothes everyday and depends on my watch while at sea I get anywhere from 3-5 hot meals a day. Much better than sleeping in a trench that's half filled with water and having to boil my own bag of food. I kid, while I love being in the navy I have the utmost respect for the people in the army and what they endure but still 3 hots and a cot is the jammy life.

    In reality we all love and respect the army for the job that they do infact my rights and freedoms in part are due to their efforts... even if they do dig ditches all day long then sleep in them... :O)
